10. 3D Kanojo: Real Girl

3D Kanojo Real Girl
Synopsis – Tsutsui Hikari is an otaku, and he mostly avoids social life. Hikari has only one friend at school, who is also a social misfit, and he is mocked brutally by most of his classmates for being creepy and weird. One day, he ends up having to clean the school pool with Igarashi Iroha, who appears to be pretty much everything he hates in real-life girls. She skips school, has a blunt manner, doesn’t have female friends, and seems the sort to be promiscuous. However, she is friendly to Hikari, and even stands up to the people who make fun of him. Hikari’s bitterness and trust issues lead him to say pretty harsh things to Iroha, but she never dismisses him as creepy. After a while, it starts to look like Iroha may become his first real-life, 3D girlfriend! Will he be able to handle it?

Similarity – main characters look alike (appearance-wise): a pink haired girl and a dark blue haired boy wearing glasses

Tendou’s interest in Amano begins shaking up what was once an uneventful life, filling it with spontaneity, awkwardness, and a little bit of mayhem. As a result, every day becomes a comical battle for Amano’s sanity as he tries to adapt to these wild, unexpected changes.

Similarity – Well if you like anime that focus on a group of people that like video games and stuff then both of these shows work. Wotakoi is a more mature romance with like, actual adults. Gamers is set in high school and use the character’s screwed up relationships and misunderstandings as its main source of comedy.

8. Ore Monogatari!! (My Love Story!!)

Having quit her long-standing job of over 11 years, Moriko quickly turns to online games to pass her now-plentiful free time, reinventing herself as the handsome and dashing male hero “Hayashi” in the MMO Fruits de Mer. With the pesky societal obligations of the real world out of the way, she blissfully dives headfirst into the realm of the game, where she promptly meets the kind and adorable healer Lily. Befriending each other almost instantly, the two become inseparable just as Moriko herself becomes more and more engrossed in her new “life” as Hayashi. Eventually, Moriko adopts the reclusive lifestyle in its entirety, venturing out from the safety of her apartment only when absolutely necessary.

Meanwhile, unbeknownst to Moriko, a timid 28-year-old corporate worker named Yuuta Sakurai has also logged onto Fruits de Mer from the other side of town. Coincidentally bumping into each other at the convenience store one night, both write off their meeting as no more than just another awkward encounter with a stranger—however, fate has more in store for them than they think.

Similarity –They are romantic comedies about adult otakus falling in love. While in Net-Juu its mainly about game otakus, while in WnKwM you’ll find a fujoshi, a cosplayer, a gamer. If you enjoy one, you’ll probably enjoy the other.

5. Love Stage!!

Love Stage

But a decade after the shoot, the magazine calls for a 10th-anniversary ad, requesting the original child actors for the project. This reunites Izumi with Ryouma Ichijou, now a popular actor who, much to Izumi’s shock, has been in love with him ever since their first meeting! However, due to Izumi’s feminine appearance and unisex name, Ryouma believed the boy was a girl and continues to do so to this day. Izumi’s troubles are just beginning because even after discovering the truth, Ryouma can’t seem to shake off his feelings…

Similarity – Otakus, who know more of anime romance than actual romance, falling in love – or having people falling for them. Those are shows about otakus that find out what the feeling of love is like. In Love Stage, the love blooms between two boys, and in Wotakoi, between a boy and a girl. The comedy of the shows are really similar as well, and the side characters relationship are equally cute as the main ones.

Danna ga Nani wo Itteiru ka Wakaranai Ken
Synopsis – Though they couldn’t be any more different, love has managed to blossom between Hajime Tsunashi, a hardcore otaku who shuts himself in at home while making a living off his blog, and his wife Kaoru—a hard-working office lady who, in contrast, is fairly ordinary, albeit somewhat of a crazy drunk. As this unlikely couple discovers, love is much more than just a first kiss or a wedding; the years that come afterward in the journey of marriage brings with it many joys as well as challenges.

Whether due to their quirky personalities or the peculiar people surrounding them, Hajime and Kaoru find themselves caught up in a variety of baffling and ridiculous antics. But despite the struggles they face, the love that ties them together spurs them to move forward and strive to become better people in order to bring their partner happiness.


Similarity – In contrast to all the characters in this show who are office workers and otakus, Danna ga Nani wo Itteiru ka Wakaranai Ken focuses on the relationship between an otaku husband, and his working office wife. The shows are similar thematically. Both shows explore relationships in a comedic light showing the transition of the character/s as otakus into young professionals, how they maintain their old and new identities, and the meanings of growing up.

3. Ballroom e Youkoso (Welcome to the Ballroom)

Ballroom e Youkoso (Welcome to the Ballroom)

Sengoku is a free-spirited, dynamic international dancer who recognizes Tatara’s potential and begins to coach him. Through dance, Tatara meets another schoolmate, a dance prodigy named Kiyoharu. Through these new friendships, Tatara develops a passionate desire to improve as a dancer and be accepted by his peers and rivals, which nurtures his own native talent.

Similarity – same
art style
or even as a romance story
they are similar in the characters exactly
in the characters Kabakura and Koyanagi they got the same personality as a couple just like Fujeta and Chinatsu when they were a team

2. Watashi ga Motete Dousunda (Kiss Him, Not Me!)

Watashi ga Motete Dousunda (Kiss Him, Not Me)Synopsis – Kae Serinuma is a second-year high schooler and an avid fujoshi who secretly ships her classmates, Igarashi-kun and Nanashima-kun. The death of her favorite anime character causes her to become stressed—and loses weight rapidly. Now that Serinuma has become an attractive girl to her classmates, her snarky kouhai Shinomiya-kun, and her senpai Mutsumi, how is she going to deal with them …with her constant BL-filled, fujoshi mind?!

Similarity – These two anime are both very similar because:
– The female main characters are fujoshis
– Both anime are centered around romance
– They both have lots of references to other video games/anime
– The secondary females are crossplayers.

1. Servant x Service

Servant x ServiceSynopsis – Servant x Service follows these three newcomers starting their jobs as government employees under their supervisor, Taishi Ichimiya, who is utterly clueless about how to direct them—despite having worked there for the last eight years. Nevertheless, he welcomes them as fellow civil servants and encourages them to work themselves like dogs for the sake of the citizens. We follow their day-to-day lives as they experience the rigors of government employment, including dealing with regulations, office romances, paperwork, and being the nearest punching bags when citizens need something to complain about.

Similarity – Office comedy and romance. Light on the standard romance cliches, but not to say there’s aren’t any.
One of those rare slice-of-life shows about adults who act more or less like adults rather than overgrown children.
