These two stories are both about romance and drama of students. The girl starts to like the boy who sits next to her. The guy likes them back but there is a female childhood friend in the way. Drama, brokenhearts and to forget that she dates his best friend.
With a noticeable tan and bleached hair, Momo Adachi is a high school student who is frequently misunderstood by her classmates. She's accused of being a playgirl and is the subject of many rumors, most of which originate from her ‘best friend' Sae who is jealous of Momo due to them having a crush on the same boy. Momo's life only gets worse when Kairi Okayasu, who she once saved from drowning, decides to make her his own. Kairi coming into Momo's life only encourages Sae to spread more rumors about Momo and Kairi while going after Toji herself, creating quite a complicated situation for everyone involved.
Both involve a highschool guy and girl who like each other and try to make a relationship work, but a mean "friend" ruins it out of jealousy. Both are shoujo and appeal to pretty much the same audience.
Yano Motoharu is the most popular guy in class, the school’s basketball ace, and highly charismatic to boot! No wonder Nanami Takahashi can’t resist falling in love with him. When Yano returns Nana’s feelings, things seem too good to be true and the two begin a relationship; but Yano has a contradictory personality which confuses Nana most of the time. On top of that, tragic events in Yano’s past won’t stop haunting their relationship. Unable to halt their passionate feelings, are Yano and Nana heading for disaster or can they save each other from irreparable hurt?
Very similar feel, drama, art to them. If you like one, you will DEFINITELY like the other.
Nana (Bokura ga Ita) / Fujisaki (Tomodachi)
Motoharu (Bokura ga Ita) / Mizuno (Tomodachi)
Takeuchi (Bokura ga Ita) / Sasamoto (Tomodachi)
All of these characters have very similar circumstances (i.e. love triangle). Personally, I like Bokura ga Ita a little bit better because it's longer... and I like drenching myself in a long manga. But, they're both very good!
