Both have to do with a girl hiding her gender, whom is also a body guard. With a strong femal lead. Both have gansters and fighting. If you like one you will like the other. 

jumparound jumparound says...

Both have women concealing their gender and acting as male bodyguards in order to survive. Both are quite dramatic and serious and a bit on the mature side especially Tokyo Crazy Paradise. If you liked one you'll most definitely enjoy the other. However, if you have any issues with nudity, then Tokyo Crazy Paradise isn't for you most likely. You see the main character's boobs quite a few times. I guess just to "prove" that they're there...

GoldenAmethyst GoldenAmethyst says...

Each story is focused on the orphan female main characters that have to hide the fact they are girls by pretending to be boys.  The story line for both revolves are around each girl having to  protect someone close to them by being a personal body guard for people that are closely tied to gangs. 

Its very dangerous if the fact that they are girls is found out but both girls happen to bery tough as they have been raised to fight and act like boys since childhood. 

Simply put if you like the drama, action, and romace of Love in the Mask then you will like the same for Tokyo Crazy Paradise and vice versa, of course.

In addition to both being manhwa, they have a pretty similar feel - a girl must act as a boy and also a badass fighter, with plenty of danger in the way. Beyond that the stories aren't very similar, but I do think fans of one would appreciate the other.

BonbonVanille BonbonVanille says...

Both put a huge accent on the pain, suffering and struggle the girls must go through in order to get their happily ever after. During the trails both girls are willing to sacrifice themselves(numerous times) for their loved ones but the stubborn prince charming never gives up their undying love.

Both of these manga are about a girl who is forced to work of a rich girl do to tragic circumstances. Both man charcaters are great fighters who dress up as a boy for some reason. In both, the girl falls in love with a guy who thinks she is a guy. Both have a vey dramtic, serious tone to them. The relationship between the rich girl and main character is a lot better in Love in the Mask, and Dedicated to Roses is the more light hearted of the two (in my opition), but if you liked one, it is very likely you will like the other.

Both are manhwa, and gender bender manga. They both a female main character serving another girl. Both main characters are good fighters that fall in love with a boy, even though it is forbbiden. Due to similar art styles, characters and plot, you would probably like both manhwas

Overall that have a very similar theme and also both have a twist that will make you reach for the tissues. If you like one you’ll probably like the other

Since nobody else has made any reccomendations, i thought i should... the girls in both of these manga must hide there true identity, even though Hana Kimi has a much lighter feel to it, Love in the Mask is also a really good manga, definetly more mature though.... i highly recommend them both, i cant wait to find out what happens next in Love in the Mask!

andreichekov andreichekov says...

They are pretty much the same story. Just Hana-Kimi is lighter hearted.

Both are body guard gender-benders where the main character has a close friendly relationship with their female body. In both manga the main characters come out of their shells and fall in love, but fear the consquences of living like a girl. Love in the Mask is more dramtic and sad then Hana no Kishi, but if you liked one there is a good chance you will like the other.

Both manhwas are about a girl who "needs" to hide who they are from people for specific reason. in both manhwas they have a rich girl they have to cater to because of a "debt". the main characters in both fall in love with a guy  they "were'nt" supposed to fall for.

andreichekov andreichekov says...

So, Natus no Zenjitsu and Love in the Mask appear to have little in common at first glance, and you'd be right to think that, because technically their only connections are romance. Peoples first draw to Love in the Mask is usually for the girl disguised as a guy thing, and most people that come to Natzu no Zenjitsu is because they read Koi Kaze.

However these to works have a very important thing in common, which is pain. They are both written to make one feel the pain of suffering unrequitted love or love that will just never work. The abilities of the writers to invoke empathy and sympathy for their characters is amazing.

Both of these works made me depressed, in a good way.

Boy of the Female Wolf

Boy of the Female Wolf

One day, however, her Grandma's already bad health worsens, and she promises not to fight anymore. When Eun-soo's grandma dies soon after, she decides to leave Dae-Jeon (where she lives) and goes to Seoul to live with her Mother, despite still hating her, because she has nowhere else to go. There, she runs into one of the best fighters, at her new school, and immediately gets on his bad side.
