Both female lead is old-fashioned, and the male lead helps them improve themselves. Both of them are similar in many ways, but they give off a different feel.

Remind me of High School Debut starring Mizubata Junpei. ML is popular guy & many girls like him in his high school. FL is the opposite of ML but slowly progressing they fell in love with each other before they realized it. FL make a promise not to fall in love with ML but she was hiding her feeling for him. Cute & lovely high school love story.

One day, popular male student Tsubaki Kyota targets Tsubaki for teasing. Tsubaki Kyota holds sway over the entire classroom and is quite a playboy. Inexplicably they fall in love. Meanwhile, Tsubaki Kyota has commitment issues.

Plot is similar, at least at first - bad boy that never slept with same girl twice meets a serious no-nonsense girl and they help each other resolve their psychological issues. MARS is much deeper, more serious, and obviously longer with more plot lines.

Awww these movies are just sooo cute and similar. You know an introvert, which is the female lead in both movies fall for the cool popular guy. And they both just make you go awwwwwwwwww.

And also it's quite sad if you are not in a relationship because it makes you want a boyfriend/girlfriend really badly :/

It's Shouko Komi's first day at the prestigious Itan Private High School, and she has already risen to the status of the school's Madonna. With long black hair and a tall, graceful appearance, she captures the attention of anyone who comes across her. There's just one problem though—despite her popularity, Shouko is terrible at communicating with others. Hitohito Tadano is your average high school boy. With his life motto of "read the situation and make sure to stay away from trouble," he quickly finds that sitting next to Shouko has made him the enemy of everyone in his class! One day, knocked out by accident, Hitohito later wakes up to the sound of Shouko's "meow." He lies that he heard nothing, causing Shouko to run away. But before she can escape, Hitohito surmises that Shouko is not able to talk to others easily—in fact, she has never been able to make a single friend. Hitohito resolves to help Shouko with her goal of making one hundred friends so that she can overcome her communication disorder.

The story is pretty similar. The main character is considered not attractive compared to her sister and because of that her personality is shy and awkward. However, because she shares a name with the popular guy in her class she catches his attention. Because of her quiet demeanor she becomes the target of his bullying but things start to shift when she stands up to him. He still "messes" with her but in ways that create opportunities for her true personality to shine and in doing so they begin to fall for each other.

Main plot point shared is that the male lead doesn't like the female leads personality in the beginning but it soon becomes apparent that he misjudged her and he finds himself drawn to her.
