10. Gamers!

Keita Amano is a typical high school gamer living the life of an average student. One day, he has an unexpected meeting with the cutest girl in school that makes him want to disappear without a trace!

This girl, Karen Tendou, is an exemplary student who has been proclaimed the school’s idol. She discovers that Amano is a gamer, and this newfound knowledge ignites a passionate desire within her to recruit him into the Game Club.

9. Ore no Kanojo to Osananajimi ga Shuraba Sugiru

The infidelity of Eita Kidou’s parents not only made his family fall apart, but also made him skeptic of love. Having no intention to delve into romance, Eita devotes his entire high school life to his studies in order to become a doctor.

It did not take long for the beautiful and popular Masuzu Natsukawa to notice Eita’s apathy. Tired of being the object of people’s affection, she asks him to pretend to be her boyfriend, as she too feels disgusted at the notion of love.

8. Kakkou no Iinazuke

Nagi Umino and Erika Amano, a studious high school student and a social media star, had nothing that linked them together—until they found out they were swapped at birth.

When the sudden news is revealed to both of their families, their parents quickly devise a proposition with neither Nagi’s nor Erika’s knowledge: in order to restore them both to their rightful families and ensure everyone’s happiness, the two should get engaged.

Similarities: Both are romcoms with a center couple who tries to act like fake boyfriends and end up being real boyfriends. On the way we can see the love interests of the main character with other girls that aren´t their couple.

7. Koi to Uso

Based on a compatibility calculation, young people at the age of 16 are assigned marriage partners by the government, with severe repercussions awaiting those who disobey the arrangement.

However, spurred by his infatuation for his classmate and long-time crush, Misaki Takasaki, Yukari defies the system and confesses his love.

After some initial reluctance, Misaki reciprocates his feelings in a moment of passion. Unfortunately, before the two can further their relationship, Yukari receives his marriage notice.

Similarities: After a romantical failure, the protagonist starts dating a random person (in Koi to Uso, it is chosen by the system, whereas in Kanojo, Okarishimasu, is by paying). Eventually, the main character and his fake girlfriend start developing feelings towards each other.

6. Golden Time

Due to a tragic accident, Banri Tada is struck with amnesia, dissolving the memories of his hometown and past. However, after befriending Mitsuo Yanagisawa, he decides to move on and begin a new life at law school in Tokyo.

But just as he is beginning to adjust to his college life, the beautiful Kouko Kaga dramatically barges into Banri’s life, and their chance meeting marks the beginning of an unforgettable year.

Similarities: Both are romances involving college students. Kanojo, Okarishimasu is more of a harem, slowly introducing multiple love interests, whereas in Golden Time, who the protagonist will end up with is clear from the start.

5. Hajimete no Gal

Following a prank pulled by his friends, Junichi Hashiba asks a gal out in an attempt to change the fact that he’s a hopeless single. Yukana Yame, the girl in question, is disgusted by Junichi’s groveling.

Similarities: Like Chizuru, Yukana Yame of ‘My First Girlfriend Is a Gal’ hides her real self underneath a false exterior. However, while the mask that the former wears is of a sweet and charming girl, the latter seems reserved and unapproachable to others.

4. Domestic na Kanojo

Deflated by this unreachable desire, Natsuo humors his friends and attends a mixer. There he meets Rui, a girl whose lack of excitement rivals that of himself.

After bonding over their mutual awkwardness, Rui takes Natsuo to her house and asks him to have “intense” with her, hoping that the experience will stop her friends from treating her like a clueless child.

After that, he find out his father is getting married, and his step sisters are Hina and Rui Tachibana, the woman he’s in love with and the girl with whom he shared his first night.

He accepts the proposal, but is horrified to discover that the client, Itsuki Nakano, is the girl he confronted earlier!

Similarities: They both have a harem and they are both funny. The MC’s are quite different though which provides variety as one is a degenerate and the other is the complete opposite.

1. Nisekoi

Raku Ichijou, a first-year student at Bonyari High School, is the sole heir to an intimidating yakuza family. Ten years ago, Raku made a promise to his childhood friend.
