Cheeky Kid has been watching anime and reading manga for as long as he can remember. Doing so takes him to different worlds.


Is love quantifiable? Can it be studied and explained in terms of numbers and scientific theories? This is what our resident scientists, Shinya and Ayame, in Rikei ga Koi ni Ochita no de Shoumei shitemita. are trying to do.

There has to be a rational explanation for love! It’s obvious that Shinya and Ayame are in love with one another, but they need conclusive facts and evidence. After all, it’s logic that runs the world. Or is it?

Logical or not, love is love. You probably love this anime, so you’re here to look for similar titles. Well, that’s a really reasonable way to go about it, and you did it! This is the right place. This is a collection of anime similar to RikeKoi. Ah, look where love brought you.

1. Dumbbell Nan Kilo Moteru? (How Heavy Are the Dumbbells You Lift?)

If Rikei ga Koi ni Ochita no de Shoumei shimeta. is about the science of love, then Dumbbell Nan Kilo Moteru? is about the science of exercise. At this point, you’ve probably already watched the former so there’s absolutely no reason you’d find the latter odd. I’m telling you, this show has a ridiculous amount of entertainment and educational value to offer!

Dumbbell Nan Kilo Moteru? is unique in that it uses “exercise” as its core theme and slaps it in a comedic slice-of-life setting. It’s clear that this show has a manifesto it wants to announce: “Workout and laugh!” That’s like hitting two birds with one stone. As you may know, laughter is the best medicine; but so is exercise!

If you love watching anime, laughing your heart out, learning facts, and staying fit, then it is in your best interests to catch this show.


2. Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun (Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-kun)

Are you getting tired of the usual formula used in many romantic comedy anime shows? Well, I guess it’s time for you to see Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun!

Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kunheavily relies on quirky surprises to captivate its viewers. For starters, its plot’s premise revolves around a high school girl named Chiyo who tries to confess her romantic feelings to a high school boy named Umetarou, only to receive a baffling autograph. Umetarou is actually secretly a famous manga artist, so he thinks she is a fan, much to Chiyo’s confusion. Of course, Chiyo goes with the flow, and suddenly—she’s working as Umetarou’s assistant! Surprising and whack, isn’t it? Well, this is just one of them. Many more surprises await!

As they say, there is beauty in simplicity. Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun isn’t all that complicated; it’s actually straightforward and direct-to-the-point. While it’s more of a comedy show rather than a romance show, the love is there. You can feel it amidst all the laughter and awkward situations. Relax, laugh, and possibly fall in love—this is Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun in a nutshell.


3. Hataraku Saibou (Cells at Work!)

The creator of Hataraku Saibou must be a mad genius! Who in their right mind would think of personifying cells, germs, and viruses in anime-form?! As odd as it sounds, this is all real. This anime is about the daily life of hardworking microscopic organisms in the human body.

Surprisingly, the peculiar concept of Hataraku Saibou hits the mark! It tells a really accurate narrative about cells working in the body. In their anthropomorphic form, cells are more relatable than ever. And since this show imparts scientific knowledge about the inner workings of the body in a comical light, there’s a strange sense of enjoyment and satisfaction watching it. What a fun way to learn!

If you love anime shows that deliver facts in such a funny and relatable way, I urge you to watch Hataraku Saibou as soon as possible!


4. Kaguya-sama: Love is War

Love confessions are really complicated. Once your heart wages war in the battlefield of romance, it can be quite difficult to stop. Who wins? Who loses? In a war of love, winning is tantamount to losing!

Kaguya and Miyuki, the student body’s top representatives, are madly in love with one another. The problem? They don’t want to admit their feelings! They believe that whoever confesses first is a lesser human being. But, how long can they hold up in trying to make the other fess up? Manipulation, exploitation, seduction, and using every dirty trick in the book of love—all is fair in love and war.

Kaguya-sama: Love is War is 100% luscious and funny. Even though it delivers well-timed jokes on an episodic basis, it’s clear that this show is heading straight towards a delightful romantic culmination. Despite being littered with the usual tropes and clichés, the execution is simply exquisite.This show doesn’t feel like any other romantic comedy. It’s a cut above the rest. So, whoever emerges victorious in the war of love, this show wins!


5. Wotakoi: Love is Hard for Otaku

This time, we won’t be having scientists trying to figure out what love actually is. That’s what Rikei ga Koi ni Ochita no de Shoumei shitemita. is for. But, we’ll be having something very similar. Here’s to office romance and otaku shenanigans in Wotakoi: Love is Hard for Otaku.

You’re probably thinking: “office life seems like a boring theme!” And I’d be hard-pressed to recommend it to you, but here I am—shouting praises about this anime. Believe me when I say that nothing is dull about this show. It’s actually colorful and lively. It makes one feel good with its vast reserve of wholesomeness and cute moments. Then, the funky scenes—oh, how I adore this show!

Nothing is ever livid and boring when love is involved. Office workers, otakus, gamers—no one is an exemption. As far as relatability goes, Wotakoi: Love is Hard for Otaku twinkles with the brilliance of love!

What are you going to watch next?
