9 Funny Anime Like Girlfriend, Girlfriend (Kanojo mo Kanojo)

Anime Like Girlfriend, Girlfriend

Kanojo mo Kanojo (Girlfriend, Girlfriend) is a comedic romance TV series animated by Tezuka Studio who also animated my favorite slice of life comedy show Dagashi Kashi.

The show is based on a manga series written and illustrated by Hiroyuki who has also created Aho girl.


Naoya Mukai is a normal highschool student who had a crush on his childhood friend Saki Saki who finally accepts her feelings in highschool, he’s the happiest he could be. One day a cute girl confesses his love to him but he is already in a relationship, being baffled by this situation he comes to a conclusion that he will date both of those girls together.

My thoughts

There isn’t really much to talk about about this as you already know this show is going to be the seasonal spice just like Rent-a-Girlfriend.

The male lead is very dense just like you see in any other anime, the females are quite a handful, they are sweet, cute, and likable but not very unique.

It’s like every year these types of anime take one step ahead to the other just to stay relevant.

I’ve found a few anime like Girlfriend, Girlfriend (Kanojo mo Kanojo) which are full of comedy and multiple love interests that you might enjoy.

Here are my 9 funny anime like Girlfriend, Girlfriend (Kanojo mo Kanojo)

My favorite Romantic comedy growing up in the anime world, was the 2nd romance anime I saw which will always have a special place in my heart.

Why is it similar?

There is a similar comedic environment throughout the series but Toradora steers more toward romance than comedy.

Both characters have their awkward moments but always end up with a nice romantic outcome.

There aren’t any annoying love competitors which makes it better.

5. The Romcom Where The Childhood Friend Won’t Lose

  • Genre: Comedy, Romance
  • Episode: 12

To me, watching Osamake was insufferable with so many romance cliche and dumb plots plus the characters always acting so stupid and nonsensical. I’m not saying that the show is just trash and you shouldn’t watch it.

There is a unique trope where the childhood friend always gets rejected, this one isn’t going to lose. It’s just not very interesting.

Why is it similar?

Very similar plot between the two shows full of comedic and awkward moments and competitive love interests.

The characters have quite similar personalities plot points with all the girls trying their absolute hardest to share the single protagonist.

Or so I thought… but Kachi has a boyfriend?! Seeing me depressed, my friend ever since we were little who’s cute, cheerful, and loves to look after others, Shida Kuroha… who also apparently had no problem telling me that she likes me for some reason just suggested, “Let’s get revenge.”
