(Aired Spring 2013 | Produced by Brain’s Base)
Hachiman Hikigaya is a high school boy unlike many of the others mentioned throughout this list.

He firmly believes that all the bubbly, happy parts of the high school are not real and that most people are simply faking their way through. When he writes an essay about these feelings, his teacher decides to force him to join the Volunteer Service Club as a punishment (or lesson?). There, he meets the only member of the club, Yukino Yukinoshita, a beautiful girl who is somewhat shut out from others because of her looks.

Love Com is a love story between a boy and a girl in Sakai, Osaka. The girl, Risa Koizumi, is 172 centimeters (5 ft 8 in) tall much taller than the average Japanese girl. The boy, Atsushi Ōtani, is 156 cm (5 ft 1 in)way below the height of the average Japanese boy. Because of this, the pair is called the “All Hanshin Kyojin” after a popular comedy duo that has a similar height difference. The difference in their heights is extremely exaggerated (in the opening credits of the anime, for example, the top of Otani’s head doesn’t even reach Risa’s chin when it should approximately level with her mouth.)During summer school, a very tall student named Ryouji Suzuki (from another class) shows up and Risa immediately falls for him because he is tall. There is a girl that Atsushi likes as well, so Risa and Atsushi decide to put aside their differences and help each other get their love interests. Their efforts fail spectacularly as Suzuki and the girl whom Ōtani had a crush on – Chiharu Tanaka – end up becoming a couple. All is not lost though since Risa and Ōtani become close friends.

“Toradora” is another anime that centers on appearance, but in a much bigger way. Main character Ryuuji Takasu is the kind boy who loves doing housework, but his outward appearance is somewhat thuggish. Co-protagonist Taiga Aisaka is a girl who seems small and cute but is actually feisty and rather dangerous. Other characters in this anime also share similar misjudgment problems based on their appearances. When Taiga and Ryuuji discover that they each have crushes on the other’s best friend, they decide to help each other out in their romantic endeavors. But who really belongs with who? There are plenty of laughs and dramatic moments along the way as these two friends discover more about each other.
Ouran Koukou Host Club
(Aired Spring 2006 | Produced by Bones)

She slips by generally under the radar. One day, after wandering into a music room and breaking a very expensive vase, she is thrust into the company of the Ouran High School Host Club, a group of boys that play host to the girls of the academy after school hours. They mistake her for a boy and force her to join the club in order to repay them for the vase. Each host has a vastly different personality, which gives the show its abundantly pleasant personality and tone. Even after the host club realizes Haruhi is a girl, they allow her to stay on as a boy to repay her debt. The only mystery is whether or not she’ll find time for love along the way, and who exactly is in love with her.
