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.
After recovering from an accident, Hiyori has returned to school for the first time, and she's terrified! For Hiyori is painfully shy, and the idea of making friends, let alone introducing herself to the class, is impossible to bear. But regardless of her embarrassment, Hiyori's small stature makes her an instant hit with her peers, including the popular and attractive Yuushin. Confident or not, Hiyori's school – and love - life is just beginning...
Almost same setting: Female protagonist is transfer student with an indifferent personality and Male protagonist with bright personality. Some chapters of Hiyokoi also refer to "First time" which I think reminds me of KnT.
These two manga have many similarities. They're both about a shy high school girl who has trouble socializing with others but starts to open up as she spends time with the most popular boy in her class.
Both center around an ultra shy girl who's interested in a popular boy that seems to like her, yet confessing is the hardest part...
You might like this manga because both of the main characters are at first misunderstood or shy and are separated from the rest of their class. Though both of them are used to this loneliness deep down inside they still long to be a part of the warm class. They both are given a chance far beyond their dreams with the help of the guy who is the center of the class and close friends they encounter through troubles along the way.
Both of these stories deal with a shy girl having a crush on a popular boy. They also deal with bullying from those ever so cruel teenage girls, at some point. These stories feel similar, but they have key differences.
When a shy girl is finally able to break out of her shell with the help of a cute boy then true friendship is finally reveled. The love and hop the characters express throughout each manga entertained with relationships of everyone envolved.
I really liked both of these, and I think that the two main female characters are kind of similar. Also, they're both about the romance between the two main characters, where the guy is popular and love with the girl and the girl is completely oblivious and unaware.
These are very similiar, and kindof torturous to read, I think. The girl in both is socially isolated and just all and out awkward. The guy is, of course, a prince charming. The girl is totally oblivious to his feelings and only focuses on making friends. They're also school based.
If you like torturously slow, romance manga, then these are for you.
Both stories have an awkward main female character that is dense yet cute and a popular main male character that decides to woo her for whatever reason. The romance between the characters is slow to develop and silly/cute.
They are both mangas that relate the high school life of a young girl. It reminds you of your first love and the happiest times spent at school.
Both are stories of a first love though the main characters' personality is different. The girl discovers love as a new experience. The humor in both are very similar, and the cute romantic aspect of it would remind you of the other.
Both have the lovable and slightly clueless heroine falling for the most popular guy in school, supported by a cast of wonderful friends. They both give you that warm feeling after you read it :)
Four gorgeous guys, one fabulous mansion and one challenge - turn the landlady's niece into a perfect lady and live rent free; fail and their rent will triple! Surely this task will be no problem for Ranmaru Mori, Kyouhei Takano, Takenaga Oda and Yuki Tohyama, who are lauded as the princes of their high school and have girls dropping at their feet daily... right? The boys' dream of rent-free living comes crashing down when they meet Sunako Nakahara, the girl they must transform. Sunako has devoted her life to solitude, preferring the company of anatomy mannequins, horror movies and the darkened seclusion of her bedroom to the presence of the ‘dazzling creatures' that cause her to have violent nosebleeds. Flushing her out into the light might prove to be more than the boys can handle!
YNSH is much more comedy-focused than Kimi ni Todoke, but both series share the same themes of friendship and believing in yourself. If you find the adorable asides and attractive spreads of Kimi ni Todoke appealing, you're gonna love YNSH's use of SD punchlines and beautiful outfits.
If your love of shoujo runs toward the amusing-but-heartfelt. You're gonna love Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge as much as Kimi ni Todoke.
Both of those mangas focus on a gloomy, "sadako-like" girl without much self-confidence. Due to influence of a certain boy (or a group of boys in Yamanade) she gradually changes her ways, becomes more open and learns how to loose the "ghost" aura in order to show her beauty.
The main difference is that Yamanade main focus is comedy, and Kimitode main focus is heartwarming. Still, both are entertaining shoujo stories with "if-you-make-effort-you-can-change-and-make-friends" theme.
Wallflower and Kimi ni Todoke have very scary girls as the main heroines, or at least everyone believes them to be scary. The male protagonists in the story are attempting to change the socially awkward girls into something'normal' for the society around them. Neither one of the heroines have very much self-confidence in themselves which makes it hard for them to make friends. The journey to change is what is exciting about each of the series.
