Fruits Basket and Gaba Kawa are both sweet romances with a touch of the supernatural. In both, a girl struggles to find love and overcome the rules and traditions that would separate her from the guy she cares for.

How can you get close to someone if you can never physically touch them?

From a girl that breaks out in hives whenever she touches cute boys, to a family cursed to transform into the animals of the zodiac whenever they touch a member of the opposite sex, these shoujo romantic comedies showcase the impediment of romantic progress due to the incapacity for physical contact, and how individuals can overcome that.

The leading scatterbrained  heroine in each is forced to spend all her time with some very pretty (and very troubled) young men. Mostly fluffy shoujo, but with often sidetracks into drama.

Appare Jipangu!

Appare Jipangu!

As a baby, Yusura was abandoned under a cherry tree along with a mysterious blue staff known as Kongoumaru. Now, Yusura is fifteen-years-old and works as a 'Hikeshiya.' Using Kongoumaru, she can absorb people's sorrow and send it back those who caused it - for a price. With the help of cheerful Minekichi, a young samurai named Samon and a ninja named Kazenosuke, Yusura helps alleviate the sadness of the world; but what she really wants is to discover the identity of her real parents and find out the origin of Kongoumaru.

OK, so although the genres of these two are quite different (Appare being a historical/fantasy romp and Fruits a supernatural/school romance) both these titles are pretty funny and self depreciating! Also each heroine has that can-do-attitude and is surrounded by a group of hot but dim bishies. What more could a shoujo fan want?

Barajou no Kiss has less humor than Fruits Basket, but both are amusing reverse harem series with beautiful bishies and an interesting story. Fruits Basket is my favorite of the two, but fans of one may enjoy the other.

Both stories are about a young girl who has lost both of her parents and ends up living with someone else, and the girl has to keep some things secret from others. Both have comedy and romance.
