Firstly, the main characters of both MeruPuri and Fruits Basket are slightly similar personality-wise, in that they both are very determined and care about the people around them. Also, some of the characters are similar, and are all connected. Finally, in each story, there is a curse (with FB it's the Zodiac Curse, while with MP it's Aram's Growing Up).
Kilala is a girl who wants nothing more than to find true love, just like the Disney princesses she loves and admires. One day Kilala finds a beautiful boy passed out on the ground and awakens him with a Sleeping Beauty-style kiss. His name is Rei, and he (and his companion Valdou) are searching for the owner of a tiara; this ‘chosen princess' is said to be able to save their country across the sea. After Kilala's friend Erica is kidnapped for winning a princess contest, Kilala sets forth on an adventure with Rei to find her and beyond. Together, they travel to the worlds of many Disney princesses, make new friends, defeat powerful enemies and even find true love!
Both are shoujo romance series with similar age gap, older female x younger male. If you read one and liked it, the other should be right up your alley (keep in mind that MeruPuri has those fantasy elements, while Kumiko & Shingo does not).
Both manga revolve around similar concept: a character is cursed (or something along the lines) and now his\hers body transforms into one of different age. In MeruPuri it's a grade school aged boy who transforms into a teenager and in Mayonaka Lolita it is a teenage girl who transforms into a (you guess it) loli. In both series the only thing that can transform the character back into the proper age is a kiss from a loved person. Oh, and both series are shoujo.
