Luckily, she soon meets Vanilla, a sweets spirit who’s here to help Amano reach her full potential. Alongside good friends such as Rumi and the three gorgeous Princes of Sweets, Amano will bake, mix and sift her way to the top!
Wallflower and Yumeiro Patissiere are similiar in numerous ways. The female leads in both animes are surrounded by good-looking men who help them achieve their goal. They also *obviously* fall for one of the males. Although Yumeiro is about cooking, and Wallflower is about beauty, they are both enjoyable and besides the fact that both are reverse harem, Wallflower is a bit more focused on romance then Yumeiro at the moment. You should definitely try Wallflower if you like Yumeiro and vice-versa.
Yumeiro Patissiere and Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge each have strong female leads that are not that strong or confident in themselves but inadvertently get surrounded by gorgous looking bishounen guys who want to help them out. While Yumeiro Patissiere is about cooking and Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge is about beauty, they both have the reverse harem aspect and similar feeling.
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.
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!
The average Tsukushi Makino attends the snobby, elite Eitoku Academy, which is dominated by the Flower Four (F4) – the sons of the most powerful families. Like the rest of her classmates, Tsukushi keeps a low profile until one day she can stand it no more! For her obstinance, the F4 declare war and it's Tsukushi against all. In the middle of it all, she finds herself drawn strangely close to two of the F4; they might not be as bad as they seem. With her heart torn between two boys, will Tsukushi be able to find the love she desires?
I'm suprised these haven't been recomended before as their really both very similar. Both stories are of a girl who doesn't necessarily fit in with the world and is viewed by others to have many faults- but then she meets a group of boys and her life changes for the better. Their also both slightly similar in the sense that both of their animation styles are quite stand-alone and not that common. Their stories have the same patterns of love triangles and romance with formerly mean male characters as well.
Both have a femaie lead who is both introverted but spunky, who are both helped and hindered by a group of rich pretty boys.
HYD has more soft romatic elements where as YNSH has more comedic ones.
I found both very enjoyable, the largest discrepency is the ratio between romance and comedy in each as I mentioned above, which depending on personal preference can influence the viewer one way or the other.
The some what goth elements/jokes in YNSH is something that I have so far found to be unique both in most anime's I have seen and in the reverse harem style but the way it is worked throughout the story has made YNSH one of my favorite animes :)
There is a character in each anime that is perceived as a monster, but is really a feeling person trying to find love from somebody else, but doesn't know how to express themselves in the normal societal sense.
While there is an overlying theme of romance, both are more about the internal struggle and character development of their offbeat, socially inept main characters. And they both take a quirky and humourous approach to get there.
If you're looking for an odd-ball romance, you've found it!
