Yoichi Karasuma is a strong young samurai who was born and raised in the mountains. One day his father decides to send him to the city to stay with the four Ikuraga sisters so that he can gain valuable life experience, but his first trip into civilization doesn’t go quite as planned. Not only is he late to meet his new hostesses, but he is labelled a pervert and manages to get himself arrested – twice! Now, as he lives at the Ikuraga Dojo with Ibuki, Ayame, Kagome and Chihaya, Yoichi must adapt to his new life at school while accepting the rather violent ‘training’ he receives from Ibuki. After making an enemy of the school delinquent and with a mysterious man after his life, it seems that Yoichi’s quest to gain life experience won’t be so smooth after all!
Ikko is a Buddhist monk in training who works at his grandmother’s temple with six nuns -- six very attractive nuns. Though lazy, weak and unmotivated to learn the skills of a monk, amazingly strong holy powers sleep inside of Ikko that are triggered only by the awakening of his, shall we say, lust for worldly delights. A vengeful spirit is haunting your home? A flash of pantsu, and Ikko's your man. But therein lies danger; what really is the secret behind his mysterious powers? And how many hits to the head from angry, semi-naked nuns can a man take?
Aside from the fact that both of these series have a certain amount of ecchi content they also have a male protagonist that is living away from home, with a group of strong female characters. Though they both focus on different scenarios they give off the same sort of vibe, which makes me think that if you enjoyed one of these you may like the other.
Overpowered hero suddenly moves in with a flock of beautiful high school girls... This storyline has been done many times, and these two shows are more reincarnations.
The things that define them. In Amenaideyo the hero has no control of his ability. it's also almost pure ecchi content.
In Asu no Youichi there is very little ecchi content and lots more martial arts.
If you appreciate Harem style comedies, give these two a try.
It's a harem anime, protagonist is a boy and he is misunderstood the whole time. In Asu no Yoichi the main characters are samurai and in Amaenaideyo the main characters are monks / nuns. They both use a traditional japanese setting in the modern times. Although Asu no Yoichi does that a little more then Amaenaideyo.
Amaenaideyo and Asu no Yoichi were remarkebly similar harem comedies, with the main character coming to live with several girls, echi misunderstandings/resulting beatings, and new enemies for its figting theme in every episode.
In the revolutionary Meiji period, Japan is undergoing enormous political change. It is a time when vagabonds and terrorists will use any method to prevent the modernization of their country, even if it means trampling on the innocent in the process. In such a time, Himura Kenshin, a wandering samurai, has dedicated his life to protecting the weak and desperate peasants from those who would oppress them. However, Kenshin has a dark past which threatens to destroy the values he is fighting for. When he meets his new friends Kaoru, Sanosuke, and Yahiko, and tries to build a peaceful life with them, events conspire against him. Can Kenshin overcome the demons within and without, and finally ensure the peaceful future that Japan deserves?
They are both samurai based shows, but that's not what makes them related. In fact the overall feel, pace and comedy of the show is relatively the same. Everytime I see Yoiichi doing a little wind technique I automatically think of Kenshin. Although Kenshin has more action, and Yuichi more comedy, they both have a great pace for any samurai lover.
Both animes are very similar not just in terms of the theme; both protagonists are master samurai who will shout the name of each attack right before they use it. in addition, both characters have the same manner of speech as well; using the suffix '-dono' for everyone as well as using 'de gozaru' at the end of some sentences for politeness. Asu No Yoichi! can be seen as a modern day Rurouni Kenshin in a certain light. Both are enjoyable for any samurai lover with a nice mix of action and comedy.
With Kenshin being my all time favorite anime, it's tough for me to relate shows to it. Asu no Yoichi is one that I don't have a hard time relating to Kenshin, however. The two main characters, Kenshin Himura and Yoichi Karasuma respectively, are similar in a lot of ways. The most obvious of which is their use of a little known yet very powerful sword style. The characters themselves aren't all, though. The whole of Yoichi feels a lot like Kenshin because once people realize who Yoichi is and how strong he is, opponents seem to come out of the woodwork in order to challenge him. They both have an air of comedy mixed with seriousness about them, although Kenshin is more serious than Yoichi. It shouldn't be too farfetched to say that either one is a good compliment to the other.
Both animes are similar with a samurai giving teachings and the samurai not killing a single person. Both are very joyable to watch and the fighting scenese are very well done.
Shirahama "weak legs" Kenichi is a typical high school student with typical problems: he's frequently bullied and tends to run away in the face of his enemies. Things change when Kenichi meets Furinji Miu, whose grandfather runs a dojo; and not knowing what he's getting himself into, he signs up to become a disciple. As Kenichi's life-threatening training continues and he becomes more and more powerful, he inadvertently becomes the target of the deadly gang called Ragnarok. With mental and physical challenges ahead, can Kenichi survive his encounters with Ragnarok, or will the masters of his dojo get to him first?
The big common point that these two shows have in common is that the main character, after showing off his skills, is challenged by ever stronger opponents. Yoichi and Kenichi both have a deep seeded need to improve their skills and protect what they value. The comedic aspect of the two shows is very similar, but with Yoichi being more of a harem.
It's hard to find a concreate way to tie these two together.
Kenichi is a coming of age story about a boy with minimal ability succeding despite himself.
Yoichi is light Harem style comedy about a naive warrior and how he affects the lives of those around him.
They have different genras, different Character types, different "Feel".
Mostly it's two things that make me feel that they are a good match for each other. the first is the sense of humor. They share a lot of simmilar style jokes and gags.
The other is a bit more subtle. If you're reading this, you probably have a good bit of anime under your belt already, so you likely know the term "moe". Another good word in Japanese is "Ami" (pronounced aa-my) can mean sweet or naive, and usually means both. And it applies to the heros Kenichi and Yoichi. It's one of those words that's ment as an insult when an opponent says it, but can be taken as a compliment. and I feel it is the defining aspect of those two.
if you like Kenichi or Asu no Yoichi you would like the other because, both have a main character that improve there skills to protect someone close to them. Thy also share a common story line were pride is important. Both have very similar comedy in them
Keitaro Urashima is somewhat of a failure. In order to fulfill a promise he made to a girl fifteen years ago, he has tried time and again to get into Tokyo U but has never managed to pass the exam. However, fate smiles upon him and he ends up working for his aunt, managing an all-girls dorm! Living with the feral Kaolla, the timid Shinobu, the sake-loving Mitsune, the blade mistress Motoko and the punch-happy Naru, can Keitaro keep his focus and keep his promise? And will he ever end up meeting that girl from his past?
Both Asu no Yoichi and Love Hina have the main character, whom is seemingly innocent, getting put into diffictult and often portrayed as "perverted" situations. It also has a wide range of different female characters like Love Hina, and a hint of ecchi.
What do you get when you take a teenaged boy and put him in a house full of girls, then add numerous other female characters? Nose bleeds and ecchi galor. That is the case with both of these animes. In addition to seemingly neverending awkward situations that the main characters find themselves in there is also love triangles or squares in some cases in both of these titles. If you like one the other will fit right in with your tastes.
Both of these series involve a dense, perverted, and slow (typical harem lead) male that goes to live in a place full of girls. In both series, all of the girls start to like the male lead for various reasons but can't bring themselves to admit their feelings.... very typical harms on both accounts.
Kakeru Daichi is an openly perverted sixteen-year-old boy who has never had a girlfriend. One night, after a refreshing shower, the boy decides to have a drink and opens up a can of melon soda; but his first sip turns into his first kiss as the can suddenly transforms into a cute girl! After his initial hesitance to acknowledge her existence, Kakeru - as her new owner - names the girl Melon and allows her to stay. Melon, as it turns out, is part of a government project in which aluminium and steel 'Akikans' fight each other to determine which is the superior type of can. Completely against the idea, Kakeru insists that Melon will not fight. Though with the appearance of Budoko, a grape juice Akikan; and Yell, a sports-drink Akikan; it seems that they won’t be able to avoid the battles forever.
Both are very light-hearted anime series, with a little drama in the pasts of each female character. Also the lead male and female have some strong bond. Throw in the occasional fan service and cute reactions of the characters, both of these should hold your attention!
Both just... Funny... And not stupid like many ecchi's. Hmm, I guess you'll just like it even if it have different stories
