Having a romance, that seems forever thwarted is one of the similarities of these two manga.

Add the fact that both have a large cast of eccentric characters, and is penned by the same author, and you can not help but enjoy both. 

Touch

Touch

Identical twins Tatsuya and Kazuya may look the same, but it's the younger Kacchan that everyone is interested in. As an excellent baseball player who is popular with all the girls and friends with all the guys, it's no wonder their childhood friend Minami prefers him over the slobby and less social Tacchan. In life, however, the path to true love and success is never an easy one -- a lesson the two boys will learn through a mix of sporting events, love triangles, typical school worries and a number of other painful and challenging situations...

Somehow, I can not help but feel a similar vibe with slice of life and romance in both of these titles. 

It also helps they have proper endings, both of them.

If you like one, you should like the other. 

Yume de Aetara

Yume de Aetara

Twenty-four-year-old Masuo has never kissed or held hands with a girl in his life, much less had a girlfriend. Nevertheless, the school teacher Nagisa, whom he's infatuated with, has agreed to go on a date with him; and his co-worker Miho has fallen in love with him. Masuo finds himself torn between the two of them as he attempts to maintain his friendship with Miho while pursuing a relationship with Nagisa, but Miho hasn't given up on him and her continued advances make Nagisa understandably jealous. Will Mauso find the courage to turn down Miho, or will her persistence win his affections?

These stories are very similar. They are both fairly long romantic comedy stories where the guy and the girl obviously like each other but mishaps and obsticals get in their way.I would say Maison Ikkoku is the much better, realistic, story with better characters. Yume de Aetara has a very wimpy lead and more 2-dimensional characters. If you like one, you will probably like the other though.
