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.

Both are titles drawn by the same mangaka, and it really shows, not only in the art but also in the story and overall mood.

Both mangas main theme is "coming of age". They feature a young, high-school girl trying to change herself and get better at things she really wants to do ( love-life in Debut, playing trumpet in Aozora). Even though they are different on the surface ( Tsubasa is shy and lack self-confidence, while Haruna is tomboyish and very open) but they are still very similar at the core of their personality (both are very honest, pure and have weird train of thoughts. Also both are very straightforward, though for Tsubasa it first requires courage to speak, so it happens less often).

Both stories feature a girl who is kinda clueless and gets tricked by guys easily, and they both fall for a guy who is harsh but caring towards them. They are both sweet and funny, and the art is cute in both.

I'll admit that the plots of these manga are not too similar, but I can't help but compare these manga. The main reason they remind me of each other is the similarity of the heroine in each manga. The main females are both tomboys, athletic, and inexperienced at dating. High School Debut is mostly about dating, while Crimson Hero focuses on sports. While reading these two, I can't help but feel like they're almost a view of the same character as if they were in a different situation.

Strange Orange

Strange Orange

Asuka and Tomaru have a long and rich relationship. They met fifteen years ago in the hospital, having been born on the same day, and have been fast friends ever since. The two are now young adults and still continue to do everything together and confide in each other always, but they've reached the age where they should be getting a significant other, and their once ideal relationship is now becoming complicated. The two decide to not date, but jealously still seems to enter the picture. What will become of these childhood friends?

Both these manga have what you want from a relaxed shoujo romance. Although High School Debut is the superior of the two (and I have yet to finish Strange Orange) both have the same sort of innocent charm. They also have nice new twists on the standard-overdone shoujo plotlines.
