Both are about high school girls falling in love with older men. Love So Life is about a young girl babysitting for two kids who have lost their mother and were abondoned by their father, so are living with their uncle. Their uncle has a very tiring job and can't control the two children, so he hires shihara to take care of them. After a while you can see the connection between shihara and seiji-uncle.

Faster than a Kiss is about a young teenaged girl, fumino, and her brother- Teppie, 4 years old- who are homless and are taken in by Fumino's english teacher. Not wanting to recieve pity, Fumino refuses the offer and jokingly says, "Will you marry me and take care of me?" and he agrees. Throughout the year Fumino and Kazuma- english teacher- become close and fall in love with each other.

Kekichan Kekichan says...

The main love interests are similar, and in both manga there are young children. (or child) Both mangas have an age gap between the protagonist and the love interest and the personality of aforementioned love interests are similar. (The protagonists however do differ.)

FullmetalDragon FullmetalDragon says...

These two series are ridiculously similar - high school girl lives with/generally spends a lot of time with an older (like 20 something) guy, and a kid/kids. There's definitely some romance going on between the two main characters, but the age gap leads them to be far to cautious about it. They're both super cute series, with super cute kids and super cute characters.

Though TcLP has nothing to do with childcare, the relationship between the main guy and main girl have a similar feel. I think it has something to do with the girl being responsible for her age and the guy being almost perfect husband material.

mikaadarna mikaadarna says...

The protagonists have the same vibe, both independent and softspoken.  Their love interests are different but are both the girls' seniors

xXiIndigoiXx xXiIndigoiXx says...

I read both of these and LOVE THEM, So in Love So Life, and Lonely Planet, they both have younger female and older male. Both girls are trying to make their way through high school, while in Tsubaki-chou Lonely Planet, our protaginst is helping her father in debt. In love so life, both parents are already deceased and she is wanting to acheive her dream of being a day care helper. Both males act as support and can be seen as a bit soft at times, however in lonely planet, our lead male can come off as rude, and has a tougher time with romance than in Love so Life where the lead male mainly struggles due to the nature of the work like relationship.

They both have an older male and younger female romance. Also the girl works for the man and the guy is very lazy and untidy

Gakuen Babysitters

Gakuen Babysitters

When Ryuichi and his 2-year-old brother Kotaro's parents die in a plane crash, the siblings are adopted by a woman who lost her son in the same incident: the wealthy chairwoman of Morinomiya Academy. She's empathetic to the brothers' plight, but her kindness has a cost: she's opened an on-site daycare for the staff's children, but doesn't have enough people to run it. None of the students have been interested in helping, and the only adult childcare worker spends more time sleeping than caring for the children. The chairwoman's solution? Put Ryuichi to work as the very first member of the school's new "Babysitter's Club"!

Both revolve around taking care of kids. Same kind of humour, romance is less important in gakusen babysitters but love so life also isn't a high speed love romancy manga.both slice of life and give a realistic feel to life where coming of age and maturing are prominent factors of the storyline.

Yui1 Yui1 says...

The both have ADORABLE kids. The main characters are "orphans." The story is light, happy, and cute. And it is really enjoyable to read.

rezanugraha rezanugraha says...

rysmoon rysmoon says...

Both of them feature little kids and the people in charge of them. They have sweet seatings with comedy and the right amount of angst to just appreciate better the good times. Having read both of them, they still are between my favorites.

kynette22 kynette22 says...

"House of the Sun" and "Love So Life" both center around a young female character who struggles with feelings of loneliness and wanting to feel like they have a home and family if their own. Both come from "broken Home" backgrounds and find the love and acceptance they are looking for in the home they are welcomed into. They both also form a romantic connection to the person who invited them in. (However, in Love So Life, this is a VERY slow burn, and is secondary to the character's desire to be a great babysitter. It does have some very sweet hints throughout, though!) Both stories are sweet with a happy ending.  

amuchanlove amuchanlove says...

Age gap, coming of age, navigating through childhood and loneliness are key features represented in both stories. Protagonists are in some ways opposite and in other ways exactly the same. As in, they face similar struggles and feel the same emotions but deal differently with them, yet have the same purity.

heawritert heawritert says...

Both "House of the Sun" and "Love So Life" revolve around a young female character who finds family in an unsuspected way. Both girls know struggle and lonliness and their make shift families rescue them. They both have sweet romances with a younger female and an older male and have a happy ending.

LivRosemarie LivRosemarie says...

Both of these have slow paced romances. Both main characters are strong, and though I don't think the girl in Skip Beat realizes it, wants some where to belong. They have different topics, but they give of some of the same feel. They both like an older man, and take forever to realize it. 

Full House Kiss

Full House Kiss

Suzuhara Mugi is a fifteen-year-old on a mission. She is determined to somehow get onto the campus of Shoukei High School, one of those super super elite private high schools.

Unfortunately, that strict school security is preventing her from getting onto the school grounds. However, her luck changes when she literally runs into Midou-kun, the son of an insanely rich mega-corporation president, and elite person at the school. Midou is not impressed with Mugi’s sob story about needing to get into the school. He is a very smug and arrogant rich guy. But he can be reasonable, and he eventually strikes up a deal with Mugi: he will get her onto the school grounds in exchange for some labor on her part. She must come to his house and work as a maid!

Perhaps not similar in content, per se, but definitely in feel. 

The main charaters of both are strong girls who are orphans and without a family but they find (or are found by) people who become precious to them and they end up becoming families. 

I love how the females have actual strength in their personality (more so in FHS than in LSL).

If you like romance, bishies with soft hearts, and light comedy, you'll enjoy either of these manga.

Love so life is a little heavier than air koi in its seriousness, but they both go for happy fuzzy romance shoujo. (there should be a word for that)

If you are looking for something as serious as love so life, air koi, is not the right one for you, buuuuuuuttttt, if you are looking for something equally cute and happy, then it is.
