Ouran High School is a prestigious private academy where money and status count for everything. Haruhi Fujioka is a scholarship student at the elite school, and is appalled by the lazy attitude of the rich and powerful students towards their studies. The Host Club is a clear example of this: a group of six attractive and wealthy boys spend their time entertaining the female pupils for a profit. When Haruhi accidentally breaks a ¥8,000,000 vase belonging to the club, they force her to work off her debt as one of the club's members; and to do so, she must masquerade as a boy! Can Haruhi keep her gender a secret from the club's exclusive clients?
In both manga the heroine is forced to join a club that consists of rich boys. The club president is a bit weird and has a crush on the heroine, however the heroine is too dense to realize it.
These two mangas are amazingly similar yet different enough too still be fresh and interesting, the feel and the comedy are near identical and i strongly recommend reading one if you liked the other, most likely you've already read OHSHC or seen the anime, if you loved Ouran, you'll most likely love My Heavenly Hockey Club as well!
Kyoko moves to the big city with the prince of her dreams Shotaro; he wants to make it big in the entertainment business, so she works hard at many different jobs to support him as he achieves his dream. However, one day, Kyoko accidentally discovers the horrible truth: the love of her life thinks of her as a 'plain and boring woman!' Outraged, Kyoko swears revenge - she will make it even bigger than Shotaro in the entertainment world. The only question is, how will she fulfill her desire?
Both mangas have a truly crazy sense to their humour and both have very strong female leads that don't fall into the stereotypical idea of a heroine only looking for love. They both have good looking guys as well for the lovers of shoujo stories.
Skip Beat and Ouran High School Host Club both have stronge female characters where the people around them look up to them. They also both have a great deal of comedic aspects to the plot and shoujo romance throughout.
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!
Ouran high School Host Club and Wallflower both involve a group of very good looking guys trying to turn a girl that doesn't quite fit in with the society around her into the perfect woman. The girls characters are both independently strong in their own right which takes a hilarious turn in the series when they try and stand up for themselves.
Ouran High School Host Club and The Wallflower are both romantic comedies involving a female main character who is surrounded by beautiful boys.
A major theme in both manga is the idea of the transformation of the heroine. In Ouran this transformation is simply disguising the female lead as a boy. However, in The Wallflower the transformation involves a complete personality change from a socially inept recluse to a perfect lady.
Both stories are full of humorous scenes and dramatic happenings. If you enjoyed one you will most likely enjoy the other.
Misaki Suzuhara is a young girl who traveled to Tokyo to live with a relative, but ended up becoming involved in the greatest game of all time: Angelic Layer! In this fast-paced competition, players customize dolls and fight them in arenas of all sizes, hoping to gain experience and perhaps win the greatest tournament of them all! With new friends to meet and new enemies to defeat, the best time of Misaki's life seems to be just beginning. Join Misaki as she struggles to be the best, even in the face of overwhelming odds.
The main female characters in both Angelic Layer and Ouran High School Host Club have the same type of ‘loving everyone’ attitude believeing the best in everyone and always fighting for what they believed in. Angelic Layer has a little more action with the fighting of the robotic dolls but Ouran is just as comical and endearing.

Luckily, not all is lost as at Fumizuki, classes can declare war on each other to swap rooms by fighting with summoned characters whose strength is based on the users' test scores. As they dream of escaping their decrepit circumstances, the ‘idiotic’ students of Class F will try whatever they can to reach the dizzy heights of Class A’s luxury, even if it means taking on the entire school in an all-out summoning war!
