Nakahara Sunako, a high school girl whose interests include horror movies, coffins and gore, is sent by her aunt to live in an extravagant mansion with four ridiculously handsome boys. As if living with these “radiant creatures” who give her constant nosebleeds isn’t hard enough, she soon discovers that the boys have made a bet with her aunt: in exchange for free rent, they will try to mold Sunako into a magnificent lady. As someone who has cast aside all her femininity and sworn to live in darkness, Sunako is ready to do whatever it takes to nullify these efforts; but is there a way for the creatures of darkness and light to coexist?
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!
Tenma Tsukamoto is young, bright, and smitten with the school hottie Oji Karasuma. She's desperate for his attention, which is unfortunate considering he barely gives her the time of day! Throw Kenji Harima, the school delinquent with a crush on Tenma into the mix and you've got one twisted love triangle of unrequited proportions! Can love find the trio happiness before their attention-grabbing stunts end up hurting more than their egos?
Both of these anime feature lots of chibi humor. There is also a lot of satire of other anime and society. In both, you will see people going to crazy lengths to show their love.
both anime's have the same atmosphere. At the end of the anime you know all the characters and they all have thei're own little stories.
both anime's are about though love and strange problems
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!
Fourteen-year-old Amano Ichigo is a would-be pâtissière who acquired her love of sweets from her late grandmother’s desserts. After meeting the talented Henri Lucas at a local sweets festa, Amano convinces her parents to let her attend the culinary Marie Academy so that she can fulfill her dream. However, as she’s only armed with a positive attitude and no real cooking skills, Amano quickly finds herself at the bottom of the class. 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.
Whenever Kippei is at school, he has one thing on his mind: girls. From skipping class to cheesy lines, he'll do anything it takes to reel the ladies in, though he never seems to find the right person. But the bachelor lifestyle is soon to change when young Yuzuyu enters the picture. This five-year-old cutie has been abandoned by her mother, and is to be taken care of by none other than Kippei! Unfortunately for the both of them, Kippei has no experience raising a child, so the learning curve will be quite steep...
An unconventional recommendation, I know. Aishiteruze Baby is a cute and dramatic tale, whereas Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge is a pseudo-dark and funny series. Yet, the plots hold a similar twist as the adults in each series seek to change the ways of the main hero/heroine. Sometimes, though, it just takes someone to accept you as you are to start the real metamorphosis.
