The female lead of the anime Hikari Hanazono always comes second best to Kei Takishima.

Sadly, she was defeated hands down by Kei. Feeling demoralized and vengeful, she swore that she would beat Kei in academics, sports or whatever he participates in. She starts going to the same school he does and directly competes with him. However, she cannot seem to beat him in academics and comes in second yet again. While she is struggling to beat Kei, she is oblivious to the fact that Kei actually likes her and that perhaps they could be together...
Being the former member of the school swim team, Momo Adachi is often "labeled" as a "slut" due to her being easily tanned. Her one and only "friend" is actually the one that spreads this blatant lies to other school mates due to her jealousy against her beauty. Now, Momo has a crush on one of her school mates named Toji. He is a good baseball player. The interesting part is that Sae also likes Toki, so she deliberately spreads rumors about Momo making out with a playboy called Kairi. The incident did happen but it was Kairi with started to kiss Momo, leaving her stunned. Thankfully, Sae's scheme about Momo eventually gets exposed and Toji got back together with Momo.

Tohru Honda is an independent girl trying to support herself when her mother passed away in a car accident. She eventually found the most unlikely of places that could help her out with her living situation. She ends up living with Yuki Sohma and his partners in crime Shigure and Kyo. The interesting thing about the Sohma's is that they have a curse from the Chinese Zodiac signs. Every time they hug the opposite sex, feel weak or under stress, they turn into the Zodiac animals. Tohru finds this out and promises not to let the cat out of the bag. She is then determined to help them break this curse. She eventually finds the spirits behind the curse and perhaps she could change the Sohma's dreaded curse forever...
Now School Rumble has a bigger group then the Ouran Highschool Host Club. There is a main male and female lead. They are Harima Kenji and Tenma Tsukamoto respectively. Now, Harima is a cool delinquent that has a secret crush on Tenma. On the other side, Tenma adores another classmate named Oji Karasuma, who is oblivious to almost everything. Both leads have trouble expressing their love in this highly comedic love triangle. The romance doesn't stop there as there are also many couple pairings in the school that makes this an amusing and entertaining anime. They also have a second season as well due to its popularity. I would highly recommend that you watch this together with Peach Girl.
