They are not exactly similar in plots, but have a little bit similar animation and hard-working girls as main characters. Also, both are just good shoujo stories, and that's the most important thing about them, in my opinion.

I really can't think of any better recs, at least now =)

Trinityx94 Trinityx94 says

Kyoko and Misaki have identical personalities with a wide variety of characters that they meet along the way of their journeys. Although they have very different plots if you watch them both you will definitely recognise the similarities. One of which is the great chibi moments that are relevant to all the characters and the strong storyline that they tackle. Both of these anime are a must see if your a fan of comedy, romance and shoujo.

Both main characters have an event that shifts there attitude and has friends and a guy to bring out their lighter sides. Very similar in animation style.

As if living with these “radiant creatures” who give her constant nosebleeds isn’t hard enough, she soon discovers that the boys have made a bet with her...

Skip Beat! and Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge share a wacky and ironic sense of humor.  They focus on themes like image, beauty, and self-esteem.  Plus, both have a funny and interesting cast.

Vayshti Vayshti says

Both of these comedies revolve around a heroine with interesting personality quirks and the beautiful, but flawed, men in their lives. The type of humour is similar, often veering to black comedy, and the use of similar character tropes and use of chibi in certain scenes make these a good pair.

Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge's set-ups are often surreal, where Skip Beat! is a little more grounded (albeit in the entertainment world), and I'd argue that the social messages in Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge are dodgy (but the humour pretty much makes up for it), but for some nice shojo comedy both live up to expectations.

AirCommodore AirCommodore says

Skip Beat's Kyoko and YNSH's Sunako are two girls on a quest to change themselves that have an uncanny ability to terrify those around them, kick-ass cooking skills, and a bunch of hot guys as co-stars.

Both series are hilarious (and contain almost identical types of humor), but can still manage to be sweet and heartwarming (especially Skip Beat).

Special A

Special A

Ever since their first meeting at six years old, Hikari Hanazono has struggled to defeat her rival Kei Takashima at anything, whether it be athletics or academics. To date she has proven unsuccessful, resulting in Kei constantly referring to her as "second place." In reality, Kei has been in love with Hikari for quite some time, but Hikari remains...

When I first saw skip beat, I couldn't help to notice how it reminded me o Special A in the plot dynamic and even in the humour. Also, they both deal with one girl trying to outdoing a boy and that's the thing that sets off the main leads to try their best. Whereas in Skip beat! there a sadder tone about the reason that made Kyoko go to showbiz to overcome Sho, in Special A it's mere rivalry. Even so, these two animes have more in common than meets the eye.

toxicherb toxicherb says

Skip Beat! is a totally awesome anime and gives off a totally new experience. Since I've started watching, I've become completely attached to this anime. I hope it'll go on forever!

Special A is similar to Skip Beat! in many ways like the competitive main character, but I would say that Special A is more of a school life love anime which seperates it slightly from Skip Beat!.

KiyoneSaya KiyoneSaya says

Have female leads that are determined to be #1 but have strong moral code where they will win fair and square. Along with some funny antics.
