I fail to see the comparison. But then I've only ever watched a few FG eps and they always struck me as having some crappy 'lol so randum' joke tossed in here or there whereas LS is entirely made up of short 'SOL' segments pieced together but maintaining an actual timeline at the same time (i.e. there is a change in seasons, school terms, they get older etc)
I've come to see that LS is like FG! comparison moreso out of a want to belittle LS by comparing it to something that's pretty idiotic mostly.
LS is LS and trying to draw comparisons between something that in the west and something that exists and has been advanced upon in Japan (i.e. the SOL genre in anime/manga format) just doesn't hold water.
