Both of these mangas are about a girl who disguises herself as a guy for personal reasons. Both of the girls fall in love with a boy who does sports. They both have their funny moments and serious moments and they're both awesome.
if you enjoyed the gender-bending, dorm life genre of hana kimi (or vice-versa); you'll surely love the other! both have sports as a theme (although one is more prominent than the other) and it's definitely SHOUJO!
these two mangas have practically the same essence, it's so hard not to compare each to the other!
while there may be some differences in their plot line, when it comes right down to it, both have a way of satisfying your inner Shoujo-seeking self!
When I first read Girl got game i though 'Hana-kimi no. 2'.
The story is different, but the idea's resemble each other a lot. Both story's have a girl cross-dressing as a guy, being roommates with the guy she loves, and both girls like sports.
If you like one, you'll like the other, because it's the same idea but with another storyline and different characters.
This has the concept of gender bender. During their time of gender bender, they run into strange conflicts. Within those conflicts, love is developed. It makes the manga more absorbing.
Ouran High School is a prestigious private academy where money and status count for everything. Haruhi Fujioka is a scholarship student at the elite school, and is appalled by the lazy attitude of the rich and powerful students towards their studies. The Host Club is a clear example of this: a group of six attractive and wealthy boys spend their time entertaining the female pupils for a profit. When Haruhi accidentally breaks a ¥8,000,000 vase belonging to the club, they force her to work off her debt as one of the club's members; and to do so, she must masquerade as a boy! Can Haruhi keep her gender a secret from the club's exclusive clients?
'Host Club' fans would like 'Hana-Kimi' because these two manga have a lot in common. Though their plots are a kind of different, the main characters are girls, pretending to be boys. And they get trough lots of funny - and sometimes not - adventures.
Both of these long-running romantic comedies explore the same themes in different ways; both of the female protagonists have to dress as males and trick classmates in order to achieve a goal. They also explore homosexuality and cross-dressing to some extent.
Hana-Kimi is slightly more serious and to-the-point but still has elements of comedy. The romantic elements are done in quite the same way and the art style of both series are of very similar tastes.
Both Ouran and Hana-kimi have a main heroin who ends up having to dress up as a guy for a good reason. And both ends up having to hide the fact that they are girls.
Both have there funny moments and sweet times.
Both stories deal with the main female character being surrounded by males and having to keep the secret that they are really females dressed up as males - from others. In Hana-Kimi, the main female Ashiya choses to dress up as a male to follow and be with her idol, Sano in his all male school. But in Ouran High School Host Club, the main female Haruhi is forced to dress up as a male to work in their club in order to pay back her debt. The stories themselves are different and unique, but share the same issues with trying to make sure people don't mind out the main female character is really a girl, and dealing with the troubles of falling in love. If you liked one, you will like the other.
Ever since they were born, the twins Maria and Noel have always been together at school and home. But when Maria falls in love with a boy and transfers to Morinomiya Junior High Boarding School without telling him, Noel is angered that another guy could come between them and decides to follow his sister and enroll at Morinomiya himself. However, there's a catch: with only one vacancy remaining, Noel will have to live life as a girl and stay in the female dorm! Now Noel is living as Maria's twin sister, much to her disgust and annoyance, and is making her life as difficult as possible. Between his friendship with the most popular sophomore in the basketball club and worrying about his roommate Miyu, will Noel still be able to achieve his goal and bring Maria back home?
I think that you'll like this manga as well since it's also gender bender, and has a lot of funny and fluffy moments as well. Also, both principal character are kind of similar (stubborn, and sometimes don't realise that they're posing as a girl/boy).
Hana-Kimi and Mint Na Bokura are two very funny gender bender mangas. Though Hana-Kimi is a bit more serious, and though the main Hana-Kimi's character is a girl and Mint Na Bokura's a boy, they're pretty similar.
All Riiko Izawa wants is a boyfriend, but she has been rejected left and right by every guy she has ever liked.

Night, as Riiko names him, is the perfect boyfriend; he's sexy, smart, athletic, and is a gourmet cook. There's just one problem: he cost $1,000,000! Riiko can't let anyone know that Night is a doll, even though he knows almost nothing about humans. Can she find a way to pay for Night while keeping him a secret from her childhood friend Soshi next door?
If you liked Hana-Kimi, you're also likely to enjoy Absolute Boyfriend. These two series are both romance-based shoujo, with elements of school life as a strong contextualising component in both - especially when anchoring the conflicts and intrigues of the romantic journeys. Tones of comedy and drama are also common to both.
Where Hana-Kimi has gender-bending between the two central characters as the main point of friction for the story, Absolute Boyfriend has the android as the main love interest. In this way, both are shoujo romances with hefty, fresh twists that challenge both sexuality and identity for teenage high school students in their disctinct ways.
This recommendation works both ways, because the thematic interplay is so keenly fresh and disctinct between both, that their individuality and their parallels would just as easily travel in either direction for these titles.
What should I say If I want you to believe that you'd like one manga If you read another one? I guess, that the main reason is that they both are gender bender mangas about girls in schools for boys only. Funny characters and funny plots are two similarities that unite Hana-Kimi and Boku ni Natta Watashi.
