One rainy day, salaryman Amakusa Ryo is saved by a high school girl he doesn't know at the station. He later finds out that the girl is Arima Ichika. Ryo is somewhat of a womanizer and to repay her for saving him, he suggests giving her a kiss or going out on a date with her, in which Ichika tells him he's creepy. This, however, opens a new door for Ryo and he falls madly in love with her. Ever since then, Ryo tries to overly express his feelings to Ichika. Ichika just keeps insulting him and says he's being creepy, but he just seems to take it as her way of showing affection towards him...

What can I say, they have the most common stories in between them with age gaps, student/teacher relationships or the bitter drama, that explains why this is about a young adult men and a young teenager girl.

Its very similar to Higehiro in that its a slightly inappropriate relationship between a working 20 something man and a high school girl.  They both explore areas of a relationship type not normally seen in anime.

Both have age gap relationships and are comedic in their own ways. The only difference I found so far is that Higehiro tends to edge on the fine line on what is considered anime and what is considered hentai.

Theyre both age gap rom coms focused on a high school girl and a office working older male. Higehiro is the man falling in love with the girl (or maybe both of them falling for eachother?) while Koikimo is about the girl falling for the guy (after the guy already likes her)

Mira Munakata is a typical high school freshman; he goes to school, hangs out with friends, and has sex with his father. Ok, maybe not so typical. With the affections (and advances) of everyone from childhood friends to senior classmates, Mira has a wide selection of prospects to choose from; but the only one he really wants is his loving (literally) father Kousuke. So, when Kousuke stays out late and is rumored to be married to his beautiful co worker, what’s a boy to do but cry?

Kotoko Aihara has always been in love with Naoki Irie; he’s tall, handsome, and rumored to be the most intelligent student in Japan – who wouldn’t be? Only one thing stands in the way of a relationship with Irie: Kotoko is ditzy and is at the bottom set of her school, and Irie-kun hates nothing more than ditzy, stupid girls. When disaster strikes and Kotoko is forced to move in with Irie-kun’s family, she suddenly sees her chance to bridge the gap. After all, even cool, super-intelligent guys must have a soft spot, right?
