Nuku Nuku is a cat-android hybrid who was created to protect the peace and thwart the evil schemes of the Mishima Corporation. She lives with her creator's family and masquerades as an ordinary human school girl; however her feline instincts and android strength threaten to reveal her true identity. Nevertheless, she often finds herself forced to use her super-human abilities to protect humanity, usually from the company's malfunctioning products, but will her secret be discovered in the process?
On a day like any other day, Cacao (a chocolate-loving student of magic) awoke to find himself next to a mysterious girl ... made of wood?! Named Hinano, the green-haired beauty wasted no time in professing her very one-sided love to Cacao, much to his dismay. Now, in this colorful world of magic and technology, Hinano must do everything in her power to to win Cacao's love, even when hindered by a variety of obstacles including martial arts twins, bizarre teachers, and suitors after her own heart!
Both series have a similar sense of humor, including their crazy, off-the-wall supporting characters and ridiculous, bizarre situations.
If you like Nuku Nuku for the fact that a cat is in a robots body. You'll probably enjoy the concept of a tree spirit inside the body of a marionette. Both are set in a school environment Although Trouble Chocolate is more romantic then Nuku Nuku. The leading female characters are somewhat the same. Also Magic (TC) vs Science (Nuku).
F City, F Prefecture: the battleground where good and evil have finally chosen to decide once and for all who will rule the world…or at least that's the general idea! Neither side seems up for the task, as surviving the brutality of everyday life is enough of a chore. On the side of evil is the organization of Across, its only member the loudmouthed and abrasive Excel who struggles just to put food in her stomach; on the side of good, three disenfranchised, unemployed bachelors whose only pursuit in life is romance. Add in alien invasions, jungle warfare, and Mexican immigrant laborers to Japan, and this war doesn't seem likely to be ending soon!
The irreverent and self-admittedly goofy humour. Being rife with anime shout-outs. Being filled with exaggerated yet entertaining and (mostly) endearing characters. Parodying common anime tropes. Breaking the fourth wall.
If these are things you liked in Nuku Nuku you should definitely check out Excel Saga, which features all of the above, only it's taken up a few notches.
She’s smart, talented, and the newest teacher at Momotsuki Academy; but she’s also… 11 years old?! Named Becky Miyamoto, this pint-sized MIT prodigy wants nothing more than to be a respectable educator, but all her students do is treat her like an adorable child! With space aliens, a class full of stereotypes (and one girl who is normal!), and a quick temper standing in her way, Becky will try her best to shape the eager young minds of tomorrow before she hits puberty!
Incensed at the damage done to the sea and its wildlife at the the hands of humanity, Squid Girl rises from the depths of the ocean to enslave humanity! Her mission proves more difficult than it first seems, however, when she gets dragooned into working at the Aizawa beach restaurant. Will the easily distracted, blissfully ignorant, and slightly thick Ika-Musume convert her managers' humble house into her base? Will she use the power of her mighty tentacles to bring all of humanity to heel? Or will she at least learn how to properly wait tables?
Both series' eponymous characters are rather dim-witted (Nuku Nuku's the dumber of the two) anthropomorphized animals with extraordinary powers and they both adapt and react to human society with uneven results. Both shows mostly focus on comedy of a pretty kid-friendly variant, though Shinryuaku! Ika Musume is far less outlandish in terms of what goes on in the episodes. If you found one interesting for one or more of these reasons you should consider trying out the other one.
