I think that these mangas are quite similar and the main female characters have quite a similar personality too. There's also a small sports theme running in both of them (though Girl Got Game is more of a sports manga than this is) and I think the art style is quite similar. The romantic progression is different but overall I think that these two mangas are definitely compatiable with one another.
Koizumi Risa is very tall, and Otani Atsushi is very short; thrust together into the same class in high school, they rapidly develop a natural conflict, constantly picking at each other in a friendly way to the great amusement of teachers and classmates. Yet as time goes by, they both realize that what they feel for each other isn't friendly rivalry, but love. How will they overcome the difficulties that this new relationship poses, without losing their friendship?
Both manga are about a high school girl who wants to find love but it's difficult for her due to her appearance: Risa is tall, while Haruna has no fashion sense and a masuline build due to playing baseball in middle school.
High School Debut and Lovely Complex and like sisters. In more than a few ways they are identical. However there a keys pieces that make them different. Risa and Haruna are both trying hard to attract love and they both find it in the least expected place (at least from their perspective :P). Honestly they are both comical, sweet, and romantic. They do a great job of lightening up your day and making you feel warm and dreamy!
Yukino Miyazawa appears to be the perfect high school student. She is at the top of her class and the envy of all her classmates, but no one knows that things are not what they seem. When at home, Yukino is spoiled, slovenly, stubborn, and spends every spare minute studying to keep her place at the top; so when she's knocked from the top by Soichiro Arima, she vows to destroy him. One day Soichiro tells Yukino he likes her, but she quickly turns him down since him falling for her means she's ‘won.' Soon after, Soichiro discovers that Yukino's prim and proper attitude is a facade and blackmails her into doing some of his school work. Yukino gets fed up with the situation and stands up to Soichiro, causing him to apologize and re-declare his true love for her after learning what Yukino is really like. Yukino has also fallen for the real Soichiro after his confession of also having to play the role of the perfect student. Together they decide to stop pretending and learn how to be themselves.
Both Mangas feateure strong-willed female lead, paired with a slightly (or more than slightly in Kare Kano case) anti-social guy, who is also handsome and popular. Both heroines are inexperienced in love, and both are capable of dealing with most of their problems through their own strengh.
Both focus on the relationship(s) between the main character(s) and give the same overall happy feeling when read.
Kyoko moves to the big city with the prince of her dreams Shotaro; he wants to make it big in the entertainment business, so she works hard at many different jobs to support him as he achieves his dream. However, one day, Kyoko accidentally discovers the horrible truth: the love of her life thinks of her as a 'plain and boring woman!' Outraged, Kyoko swears revenge - she will make it even bigger than Shotaro in the entertainment world. The only question is, how will she fulfill her desire?
Both mangas feature a strong, optimistic female character, that's really unexperienced in matters of love. Both heroines give it all they've got to achieve their goals (getting boyfriend in High school debut, and becoming Idol in Skip Beat). Their simple minded logic, and lack of experience often brings suprising results.
They are just awesome, funny and romantic. If you like shoujo manga then you will surtenly like these ones.
Sawako Kuronuma is just like any other high school girl who wants to make friends and be useful. The only problem is she bears a worrying resemblance to Sadako from 'The Ring!' Because of her reputation, people are not only terrified of her, but small dogs even bark in fear at her presence; in fact, the only person in school who will talk to her is the lively class hottie, Kazehaya. As the pair spends more time together, Kazehaya slowly begins to bring Sawako out of her shell and soon their feelings for each other develop further. Though with her crippling insecurities, lack of social skills, and a series of cruel rumors and misunderstandings, it seems that Sawako's dream of a normal life won’t be quite so easy to obtain.
Both mangas are heartwarming stories about a clueless and pure girl, deciding to change herself. Since heroines don't know much about how to act in relationships they have to rely on advice and help from the male lead. Both stories are filled with comedy and charming moments, have positive and optimistic mood and generally are focused on making readers smile.
The main difference would be the heroines characters ( strong-willed tomboy in High-School Debut, and gloomy girl without self-confidence in KimiTodo ) and their reason for change ( finding love in High School debut, finding friendship in KimiTodo )
Generally if you like on of those stories, you should enjoy the other as well.
the heroines of both mangas are really similar: both aren't really noticed by others, both are really clueless, really honest of their feelings, and both have caught the attention of the school hottie. i really love both of these mangas so you should read em too :)
