Paradise Kiss

Paradise Kiss

Yukari is a typical high school student on the fast track to attending a university, but her boring life leaves much to be desired; that is, until a motley crew of fashion design students ask her to model their new clothing line: Paradise Kiss! Now, Yukari must choose if she will reject the life her mother has laid out for her, and start making choices on her own for the first time. While taking her first steps into adulthood, Yukari also begins to realize that with freedom comes responsibility; a life in the fashion industry isn't an easy one, especially for someone unsure of her own intentions…

In Paradise Kiss, the action doesn't just revolve around designing a pretty dress that would win a competition, but around turning a simple schoolgirl into a model as well. A model with a perfect look, a vast knowledge in the fashion area and lady-like behaviour. This metamorphosis is a common theme in Yamato as well; the difference is that in Paradise Kiss, they actually manage to reach this point, while in Yamato Nadeshiko, that state is still something they have to work really hard for (and I'm not just talking about the main character here, but of the entire team that supports her).

Both Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge and Paradise Kiss deal with coming of age issues as an ordinary girl is swept away into a life of glamour. In addition, both series revolve around the beauty of an ordinary girl, and that which she must obtain through the guidance of extraordinary men.

Both Paradise Kiss and Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge involve the need to turn an ordinary girl into something more glamorous such as a lady and a model. There is some drama in each of them, but there is more humor in Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge. Still I think that if you liked one you will enjoy the other.

Paradise Kiss and Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge involve trying to turn girls into something else and shaping their lives in different ways.  Paradise Kiss revolves more about fashion and trying to turn the main girl into a model.  The series both involve high school students trying to find their way in the world living with real life issues.

Lovely Complex

Lovely Complex

Lovely Complex is a story of a boy and a girl. The girl, Koizumi Risa, is much taller than the average Japanese girl; and the boy, Atsushi Otani, is much shorter than the average Japanese boy. Due to their immense difference in size and constant bickering with each other, the duo is unwillingly the school’s comic relief. As Risa and Otani continue to provide endless laughter for the masses, their friendship develops; and with that, so does Risa’s feelings for Otani...

The themes of YNSH and Lovely Complex are similar (love and acceptance), even if the plots are not. Both are quite amusing as well.

LaughOnceInARedMoon LaughOnceInARedMoon says...

Even though the plots are different, both Lovely Complex and Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge are very fun to watch. While the plots are different, they both deal with the ups and downs that occur when you have girls in your life. If you liked one I think you would like the other.

This is a romance comedy as well! :) There is also a fairly important moral to this story as well as the one taught from Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge.

Its super funny! And both the main characters in Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge (Pretty girl evolution) and Lovely complex have to overcome their self-conciousness

Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei

Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei

Life is simply not worth living for down and out school teacher Itoshiki Nozomu. He has no hope of progress, no prospect of promotion, no chance at happiness… he is in despair! Even his name spells 'zetsubou' – 'despair', when compressed. But when the time comes to end it all, Itoshiki's attempted suicide on the first day of the new school year is foiled by relentlessly positive Fuura Kafuka. This saves Itoshiki long enough to meet his new class, and the quirky range of students under his care. Will Itoshiki Nozomu depress his students with his anguish? Or will Fuura show Zetsubou-sensei the joys of life and hope?

Rizu Rizu says...

Both series are fast-paced, dark comedies. I would call Yamato a cross between Sayonara and Ouran High School Host Club. While Sayonara is a dark, twisted, somewhat hard to follow, pop-culture reference-filled, very fast-paced with schizophrenic "plot"-hopping, Yamato is... all these things, (minus the constant pop-culture references) toned down, and in a definitively shoujo setting.

The female lead of Yamato is reminiscent of the background female characters of Sayonara; sometimes beautiful, sometimes seemingly normal, but always reverting to an utterly psychotic nature. While the characters in Sayonara are pulling animal tails, hiding/living in lockers, and stalking their teacher, the "heroine" of Yamato is hiding in her dimly lit room or biology lab, polishing her beloved human skull, watching slasher flicks, and scheming with her best friend, the half-skinned plastic human anatomy prop, over the best way to kill a man she believes is too good looking.

Estuko Estuko says...

The dark humor in these series are very similar, so if you liked one you are most likely to like the other one too...

Nozomu and Sunako share something in common. They are both rather gloomy/occult-loving characters surrounded by a cast of hyper, off-the-wall, opposite-gender characters. The dark humored comedy of these animes are practically identical. 

Kaichou wa Maid-sama!

Kaichou wa Maid-sama!

President of the Student Council at the almost-all-boys Seika High School, the hard-as-nails Misaki Ayuzawa works every day to make life easier on the small population of co-eds who have enrolled there. Though an unholy terror to all things male during school hours, in order to provide for her impoverished family, she secretly works after school at a maid cafe in Akihabara. However, when campus hottie Usui Takumi wanders into the restaurant during her shift, suddenly she finds her reputation in school at his mercy...

So one show has the ultimate all-round student, and the other has a girl with shut-in tendencies, but both characters are competitive, driven and terribly likable despite their flaws.

Both shows have a lot of laugh out loud moments, and while Kaichou is not as crack-tastic as Yamato, neither does it fall into moralising traps like Yamato sometimes does.

Animation wise - expect characters to melt into stick-figure forms in both shows, provide comedic shojo sparkles, cross-dressing, school sports day nonsense and a decent clutch of bishies too.

Kaichou wa Maid-sama may have a dodgy title and creepy blackmail premise, but it's far from a piece of male fan service.

annalisebee annalisebee says...

It's a bit hard to describe the similarities between these two shows, because on the surface the plots are very different. However, they share a similar sense of humor-- situational comedy relying heavily on stereotypes, sexual innuendo, irony, and chibi-fied animation sequences. If you enjoy the humor in one of them, you'll likely enjoy both (as I did!)Also, there is a live-action version of YNSH which I found enjoyable, so you may want to search that out too!

Ilsa Ilsa says...

Competitive, similar to tsundere and full of pretty boys or one pretty boy who beats everyone is what you seek. Yamato nadeshiko made me frustrated becouse of lack of romance but in both there are a lot of humorous situations with handsome boys in first place :D

Sanako and Tomoko are both socially awkward to a ridiculas degree. They are unable to communicate with others normally and their appearances are almost scary. Although Yamanade is a romance, It's safe to say that if you liked one you would like the other.

snivets snivets says...

Both Wallflower and Watamote feature the most awkward of socially awkward high school girls with awkward hobbies. Sunako likes horror movies & gore, and Tomoko likes dating sims & manga, causing both girls to struggle with ideals of what is normal, pretty, and popular. If you enjoyed one, you'd probably enjoy the other.

Issengard Issengard says...

Both girls are weird, socially ankward and introverted but while Sunako is able to at least make friends, Tomoko continue being antisocial the whole series.
