Lovely Complex Episode 9 - Back From the Dead! Go for the Girlfriend Spot!

The rejected Lisa decides to go back to just friends with Ōtani in order to not worry Nobuko and her other friends. It's the second day of the school trip. As chance would have it, they run into Umibōzu who's on vacation with his family. Both of them are awestruck. When Lisa asks Umibōzu's wife how they met, she reveals that they were highschool sweethearts who once broke up, only to get back together some time later and got married. Those words give Lisa courage and she decides to accept her feelings. She tells Ōtani that since she likes him, she's cancelling reverting everything back "just friends". Thus the two of them settle at "more than friends, less than lovers".

Toradora!

Toradora!

Ryuuji Takasu has an eventful life: his classmates think he's a delinquent due to his 'killer' eyes; his crush Minori seems ever out of reach; and he’s just had an unfortunate encounter with 'palm-sized Taiga' – a feisty and dainty wench in his class. With different cleaning habits and tempers, the two clash like night and day; that is, except for...

Both are romantic comdies which revolves largely around the main male/female lead's comedic bickering.

Both the male and female share similar complex about their persons, Lovely Complex revolving around their heights, Toradora around being misunderstood for their looks. 

The starting premise for both also revolves around the leads helping the other to go out with a different person, and a relatively slow progression of the relationship between the leads.

Lovely Complex is perhaps the more 'girly' of the two, as it focuses more on Risa's point of view, where Toradora focuses more on Ryuji's viewpoint.

TropicalMist TropicalMist says

I feel that both these series start off in the same premise... two unlikely girl and guy become good friends due to random circumstances (like trying to pair each other up with their best friends!).  But there's more to that... in both series, we get a sense of friendship from both parties.  The audience knows that these two may (most likely) end up together. 

That's when the similarities end however.  The way the anime brings these two together is very different.  While Toradora! is more about family and self discovery, LC is about getting over appearences and in a sense, moving on.  They're both based in a high school setting, but their story-telling methods are very different even though they both start off as an innocent friendship.

Artistoftheno Artistoftheno says

Both are high school romances, that have the main characters "accidently" fall in love. You would also like Toradora, because like Lovely Complex, it has a realistic view on relationships. That love isnt always perfect. Both shows use a well blend of comedy and drama.

Kimi ni Todoke - From Me To You

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...

Two cutest stories about love and friendship. Both the main characters - Risa and Sawako - has their problems and friends helping them to overcome it all.

I can say a lot, but definitely, If you watch one anime you'd like the other.

unitzero unitzero says

Both Kimi Ni Todoke and Lovely complex are sweet stories centered around coming of age romances. The sentimentality and use of "misunderstandings" as a plot device is central to both shows. While Lovely Complex has a little more comedy and Kimi ni Todoke is more of a drama both shows aim to pull at the same heartstrings while exploring the trials of understanding one's own heart. If you liked either of these shows you probably would enjoy the other.

If a super sweet high school romance is what you are looking for, you will not go wrong by watching either Kimi Ni Todoke or Lovely Complex. Both have that innocence that is so a part of what we all remember of our first love. That same innocence that seems to conquer all adversities. Both excellent, both romantic, both endearing. Watch them both!

If you like shoujo where the two main characters are endlessly in conflict with each other, but like each other despite how much they seem to hate each other, then check out either of these two shows.

Cobberwebb Cobberwebb says

Absolutely not doubt that these two are in a class of their own when it comes to Rom-coms. Great chemistry between the two main characters, no 'filler' episodes, it's all about their relationship, and getting to know their characters.

ofall ofall says

They both make you wonder how the heck this relationship will ever work because the characters don't exactly mesh well. Also, in both, there is one character that is obviously pursuing the other much more than their partner would like. The last reason is that, unlike some of shoujo, it puts more emphasis on the comedy than the gooey romance.
