Medaka Box

Medaka Box

Medaka Kurokami is the perfect honour student. She has exemplary grades, talent at any sport she tries her hand at, comes from a rich family, is exceptionally popular, and has just become the first ever freshman student to be elected School President! During her inauguration speech she proclaims that she will endeavour to help every student with any problem if they simply submit it to the newly instated suggestion box. But with a bare-bones student council consisting of only herself and her unwilling accomplice Zenkichi, people are unsure whether to take her seriously or not. Regardless, Medaka takes each suggestion and gives her all to fulfil any request, be it ridding the kendo hall of delinquents, writing a love letter, or helping a struggling art student find his muse.

Both mangas are stories focusing on a high school girl, who is a genius when it comes to fighting (or a genius in every area in Medaka Box case). That person have an important job (class president in Yankee-kun, and Student council president in Medaka Box ) and strong sense of duty. Her goal is to help people, and for that she will drag her poor male companion through hell. As the story progresses more characters gather around the strong heroine, and help achieve her goals.

Both stories are a mix of comedy, battles and a bit of romance. Boh makes you feel sorry for the guy, abused by the selfish girl.You should have a fun time reading either of them.

YtM and Medaka Box (during the first 16 chapters) have similar plot and similar characters. Namely they have an energetic girl leading a high school student council. Unlike YtM, Medaka Box contains some ecchi. Still, if you liked one of those manga you should give the other one a try.

Oresama Teacher

Oresama Teacher

Both Yankee-kun to Megane-chanand Oresama Teacher have an ex-delinquent girl trying to lead a normal school life and force a delinquent guy to do the same. Both are plenty fun, so if you like one of those the other one might be worth checking out.

Both of these stories center around a former delinquent girl who changes herself and tries to suppress her gangster ways. Each of these mangas involve the girl and the other supporting cast/delinquents on their adventures through schooling. Comedy from both mangas are quite the same and they are very enjoyable as a whole. If you've read one and liked it, you are sure to like the other.

Both series have similar setting, style and characters, but that's not surprising considering the fact that both were written by the same person. So, if you liked one of them, you'll love the other one.

Brad Brad says...

Both of these series are written by the same author, and it really shows. The setting, characters and humour vary between being very similar, or totally identical.

Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo is the better of the two, it just 'clicks' in a way that Yankee-kun to Megane-chan didn't, but both are very good reads, and anyone who enjoyed one will certainly enjoy the other.

High School Debut

Thus begins the crazy relationships of Haruna, Yoh and their friends as they all struggle to find themselves and their true loves.

Both manga feature a girl who is clueless about how to be a normal high school girl. The male protagonist  is dragged into helping her out and ends up getting more than he bargained for. Both are funny with nice romantic moments.

In both titles the main heroine is very energetic and passionate, daughter of the yakuza household. They try to live a normal life without employing the powers of their families. Both are very strong fighters, but try to avoid fighting as much as possible.

In both cases manga deal with deliquents, changing their ways for one reason or another. Both are very good school life stories with lots of comedy mixed in.

Both are hilarious stories about a delinquent who starts out with almost no friends and a bad personality, but change (somewhat). They also have hints of romance throughout the story. If you liked one, then you'll probably like the other.

Maid-sama!

Maid-sama!

President of the Student Council at the almost-all-boys Seika High School, the hard-as-nails Misaki Ayuzawa works every day to make life easier on the small population of co-eds who have enrolled there. Though an unholy terror to all things male during school hours, in order to provide for her impoverished family, she secretly works after school at a maid cafe in Akihabara. However, when campus hottie Usui Takumi wanders into the restaurant during her shift, suddenly she finds her reputation in school at his mercy...

JAhU JAhU says...

Both Kaichou wa Maid-sama and Yankee-kun to Megane-chan are about hard working high-school student councils. One is a shojou manga while the other is a shonen one, so the style does differ, but if you enjoyed one of these you will probably like the other too. I mean both have bits of comedy and romance, what's not to like?

P.S. YtM starts off weak, but gets better around volume 2 with introduction of new characters. Because of that the resemblance is not obvious from the start.

Fujimura-kun Meitsu

Fujimura-kun Meitsu

Fujimura is a loner delinquent at his school. Feared by his classmates since the first day of high school, he's had no friends and usually ditches class. But even his standoffish nature can't hold up when a class representative with a few screws loose comes after him! And two more class representatives. They're a few cards short of a full deck too.

Take the basic plot of Yankee-kun to Megane-chan, add a bit of harem and lots of crazy humor and you will get Fujimura-kun Mates. Although those manga differ in style of jokes, both are really hilarious. If you liked one, the other one might be worth a shot.

Fairy Tail

Fairy Tail

Lucy is a seventeen-year-old mage with the power to summon stellar spirits, but what she really wants to do is join a guild - and not just any guild.

While in town one day Lucy meets a perpetually-seasick boy named Natsu who, through a series of events, reveals to her that he's none other than the fire-eating mage Salamander of Fairy Tail! Lucy is finally able to join Fairy Tail and quickly begins to take on odd jobs with Natsu and his gang for fame and profit. Along with her fiery friend, Happy the flying cat, Natsu's archrival Gray and their overseer the invincible and beautiful Erza, Lucy sets forth for epic adventures that leave an epic amount of destruction in their wake. After all, destroying a city or five doesn't matter as long as they get the job done... right?!

Yoshikawa Miki was an assistant of Mashima Hiro when he was makin' Groove Adventure Rave, so that's what can see the evident influence that she got from him: The surprised faces, gags and the style of drawing (Macchi looks like Natsu for example).

Natsu, Gray and Erza are like the yankees in Yankee-kun to Megane-chan (Adachi, Shinagawa and Izumi), and there are someone who has common sense (Lucy & Chiba), they are in an Organitation who helps people with troubles (Fairy Tail Guild, and the Student Council).

Both mangakas, likes to draw werid characters (for example, the sun-face of Rave Ichiya, the girlfriends of Nerima or that strange teacher who teachs Shinagawa)Yoshikawa and Mashima are very good friends too, that's why they make Fairy Megane, a crossover of their respective series.

trottolina trottolina says...

A young boy who doesn't enjoy high school life is brought into the thick of it due to a budding relationship with a girl who seems, on the surface, to be the exact opposite of him.

They make friends, study for exams, get involved in fights, and generally run around having fun.

If you enjoyed the setting and group dynamics of the characters in one manga I can pretty much guarantee you'll enjoy them in the other.
