Ai, Mai and Mii are three would-be manga artists who can't seem to stay out of trouble, let alone complete a project! Whether they're having a one-off encounter with the forest dweller Yamu, becoming human sprinklers, entering manga battles or entering a doujinshi fair, the trio have fun one day at a time.
Ten-year-old genius Chiyo, animal-loving Sakaki, loudmouth Tomo, athletic Kagura, weight-conscious Yomi and dim-witted Osaka are six friends who share laughs, good times, and a high school homeroom. With scary (and sometimes perverted) teachers, school festivals, penguin suits and general hilarity abounding, you can be sure that there's never a dull day in the life of one of these students!
If you're looking for another random school girl comedy, but one with actual humor and wit, check out Azumanga Daioh. It's not as over the top slapstick and doesn't involve otaku culture, but it's far superior in basically every way.
School girls, comedy, episodic content and some completely and utterly random situations. Both of 'em in a nutshell and while Azumanga Daioh is complimented by a great secondary cast that actually steal the show from time to time. Ai Mai Mii only has it's main cast, and half of them are tolerable. Azumanga is the superior of the two and going from Azumanga to Ai Mai Mii is only asking for trouble.
If you enjoyed the random schoolgirl comedy in Ai Mai Mii then you should enjoy the vastly superior Azumanga Daioh. The latter is better in every single way possible, with a better main cast, a much better secondary cast, funnier comedy and better interactions between characters.
Both Azumanga and AiMaiMii are over-the-top comedies featuring a cast of schoolgirls and their daily lives. Both are considerably random, with almost everything imaginable happening during their run times. However, it can be said that Azumanga is the better of the two.
The students of the Geijutsuka Art Design Class study all the various fields of art, from sketching and painting to graphic design and photography. While the mischievous Noda is always thinking up new ways to have fun with her partner in crime - tomboy Tomokane - the ditzy Kisaragi is content with doodling cats in her sketchbook. With Namiko attempting (and failing) to keep the energetic duo in line, the quiet and mysterious Kyoujyu seems happy to observe the odd behavior of her classmates. Whether they are transforming a congealed lump of paint into a sculpture of a pudding, playing ‘color tag’, or making thought collages, the gang live their life to the max through both their friendships and their art.
If you kind of liked Ai Mai Mii, but are looking for something much better, try GA. It shares the similar comedy, school life feel, but is a huge improvement over Ai Mai Mii.
Both series focus on art (or in Ai Mai Mii, manga), but with a cutesy and comedic fashion. Both are heavily moe, and feature high doses of randomness. However, GA has some information put into it, whereas Ai Mai Mii does not.
In either case, if you liked one, the other may be enjoyable to you!
In present day Japan, the life of a school girl is never dull. The easily-bored Konata never finds time to study because of her otaku habits, which frustrates hard-working Kagami to no end. On the other hand, laid-back Tsukasa always manages to go with the flow, while Miyuki is concerned with keeping her status as resident know-it-all. Join these four girls as they muse and meander their way through everyday events such as eating chocolate cones, doing homework, gaming, and trips to the beach galore.
Two comedy titles related to otaku culture and slice of life antics - Lucky Star is easily the more popular of the two, as Ai Mai Mii is pretty horrendous on all levels. That being said, I believe fans of one would appreciate the other, especially in the AMM->LS direction.
Both of these anime are about high school girls and have a similar humor style. Making quick, random jokes in random settings is the odd type of humor both of these shows share.
Sonya may look like a regular school girl, but in truth she’s a deadly assassin who keeps to herself. Despite many warnings not to get involved with her, ditzy Yasuna decides that she is her friend, even if it means getting her arm broken or ending up in a headlock each time she surprises the young hitman. And just to make matters worse, ninja girl, Agiri - an associate of Sonya's - also attends the same school. With Sonya resorting to violence at every turn and Agiri parading her various "techniques" at every turn, Yasuna’s school life is about to get all the more hectic... that is, if she can manage to survive in one piece!
