Written by the same author. Bothe series focuses on high school romance and depicts complex feelings and social situations well

dandere dandere says...

Both anime focus on the main female and male character falling in love. Both female leads are very lovable and easy to get along with and both male leads are very cool, calm, and popular. The art in both manga is very similar, along with the story. Both also contain a love triangle.

They are both shoujo highschool romances with lots of romantic conflict and really cute characters! I read Hirunaka no Ryuusei first, but really love Ao Haru Ride too!

Akazukin Akazukin says...

Hirunaka no Ryuusei and Ao Haru Ride shares the same feel in a way. No insane drama, slow paced and really allows you to get to know the characters and understand the choices that they make. If you like one, I'm certain you'll like the other.

Both manga have very similar themes and story lines

- Both are stories in which the girl saves the guy

- Both in which are slice of life stories, which are kind of nostalgic in a way

- If you are bummed out about Ao Haru Ride ending I garuntee Orange will not let you down.

EastIsEarly EastIsEarly says...

Both series feature a strong group of friends who care deeply for eachother, who all make a particular effort to help one of their depressed friends. Both have love triangles in which the characters deal with their emotions in a mature and caring way, taking into account both their love interest and their rival's feelings. Both explore melancholy and the different ways people might view the world, and why. Blue Spring Ride is a bit more lighthearted with lower stakes, while Orange goes deeper into the mature/psychological side. 

Kimi ni Todoke: From Me to You

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 class hottie, Kazehaya. As the pair spends more time together, Kazehaya slowly begins to bring Sawako out of her shell and soon their feelings for each other develop further. Though with her crippling insecurities, lack of social skills, and a series of cruel rumors and misunderstandings, it seems that Sawako's dream of a normal life won’t be quite so easy to obtain.

Kimi ni is a similar high school romance type manga. It has a cute story so far, not so much drama as "aww" factor though. However, if you like the HS relationship plot, I would recommend this one.

KnowYourPlace KnowYourPlace says...

I think both mangas are quite similar when it comes to the heroines' unyielding spirit. At first, they put up appearances but then change for the better with the realization from their respective heroes. Although actually their so-called heroes are a bit problematic with their own circumstances, at the end of the day, the heroines help their respective heroes back on their feet again. The point is both mangas are trying to tell us that life can be sweet, bitter or savory maybe depends on our decision. Anyway, both mangas are great so make sure to read both.

andreichekov andreichekov says...

These are both shoujo romance stories, where there is a girl and a guy and they have to pretend not to like each other.

Ao Haru Ride has a strong silent guy, and it is longer, so it has more time for drama.

Kiken Mania has a talktative guy.

Those are pretty much the only differences.

Also, the art is almost identical.

Both manga have the same vibes since they’re slice of life, romance, shoujo manga and the main characters are high school students. Despite these similarities, the romantic relationships in both the series are facing difficulties because of certain events that happened in the past. Both the male protagonists have their fair share of dark past to deal with in order to make their relationships work. They have the same melancholic feeling and the story development is quite similar since there are misunderstandings and confusions causing the couples to face many struggles and heartbreaks. If you liked the one, you will probably enjoy the other too.
