Both manga are based around the 1 girl, 2 guys love triangle deal. The female leads are both cute and cheerful girls with a lot on their plate. They both have supernatural themes without being overly annoying about it (imo). If you liked one, I would say that you would almost definately enjoy the other.

These two series are similar, in both setting and plot. The main character for both is a cheery highschool girl who ends up in a love triangle that only gets more and more complicated, expecially when the boys' powerful familes get involved. The high school setting and humor are also similar in both.Both series, although starting as simple romance stories, eventually dive into dark themes as well.

The story of an optimistic young school girl who tries to help everyone around her while dealing with her own difficulties in life. That's the story of both Fruits Basket and Kodocha, and both series are executed very well. The main female leads are extremely easy to like and their respective hot-headed love interests are a good match. Shoujo fans should enjoy them both.

Taiyou no Ie

Taiyou no Ie

Back in the day, that place was a house filled with magic - a place where you ended up smiling even if you were crying. Surely, an invisible wizard must have lived there. Or so I thought. What's a young child to do when her mother leaves her father for another man? Or when her father remarries a woman who brings along a child from a previous marriage? Or when her childhood neighbor friend invites her to live with him?

Both mangas carry a very sweet tone with a bit of melancholy. The main character is in a state of lostness and is offered a new place to stay. In this new place she finds her sense of belonging and develops friendship and romantic interests along the way. The main characters are both clusmy and feel like they need to bare the brunt of the world on thier own and throughout their story they learn to share it. Fruits Basket has a lot more supernatural elements and a little more humor, but they share a very similar feeling.

Both of these supernatural fantasy series are by the same mangka, with similar art and calm shoujo atmosphere.
