Synopsis:

Osaka is curious, she is puzzling, and above all she is clueless. On this particular day, her curiosity is focused on the cutest little set of pigtails you have ever seen. These pigtails happen to belong to the cutest little 10-year-old genius you have ever seen: Chiyo-chan! When Osaka just can’t stand it any longer she reaches up and grabs the pigtails, but much to her surprise they seem to have a mind of their own. Jumping right off of Chiyo’s head, the pigtails make a bouncing beeline towards the window and escape in a hurry! One very sad little Chiyo-chan desperately runs after them, but what adventures await her in a world where pigtails are so free and lively!?

Di Gi Charat Movie - A Trip to the Planet

Di Gi Charat Movie - A Trip to the Planet
  • Movie (1 ep x 25 min)
  • 2001

Back on Earth, Dejiko is feeling a little homesick, and decides to take a spur-of-the-moment vacation to Planet Di Gi Charat along with Puchiko, Gema-Gema, and stowaway Rabi-en-Rose. But along the way, Pyoko and the Black Gema-Gema gang are determined to sabotage their fun!

How long was the last movie you saw? Probably about two hours long. Unless it happened to be one of these movies, which are 30 minutes for Di Gi Charat, and 5 for Azumanga Daioh. But both of these movies pack an amazing amount of silliness in their short amount of time.

cassiesheepgirl

Both of these "movies" are incredibly short spin-offs of their main series. Though Di Gi Charat - A Trip to the Planet is more wacky, both feature a similar amount of silly fun, so if you enjoyed one, then it's worth checking out the other.

Lucky Star

Lucky Star

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.

Be it the cute character designs, the sheer strangeness of how the characters act or the gags that take some strange turns, Lucky Star is a very nice watch if you liked the Azumanga Movie!

adventchildmatrix

Both these series are about a young female character. Who is different from every one else. for instance Chiyo-Chan is a 10-year old genius while Konata is an air head who never finds time to study beceuse of her very strange habits. But with the kwirky happenings going on in these animes are never boring. If you liked this then you will surely like the other.

Bottle Fairy

Bottle Fairy
  • TV (13 eps x 13 min)
  • 2003

Kururu, Chiriri, Sarara, and Hororo are four faries who aspire to become human. To do this, they leave the fairy world to study for a year in our world. Aided by their friends Sensei-san and Tama, they have fun learning about topics ranging from school graduation ceremonies and sports festivals to romance and caring for flowers. But as the end of the year of study approaches, will they have learned enough to realize their dreams?

Bottle Fairy is just like the Azumanga Movie; it is supported by overly cute characters and the adorable jokes that come with them. Bottle Fairy focuses a tad more on the cuteness, but there is a lot to learn about Japanese culture (which is brought about in a fun manner).

Haré+Guu

Haré+Guu

Haré and his mother live peacefully in the jungle, until one day the boy is overtaken by a omnipotent shadow. Later, he awakens to find Guu, a strange girl with even stranger abilities - notably, the ability to switch from a cute, lovable Guu, to a menacing delinquent who eats everything. Now Haré must live with Guu, and lead a normal life, despite her oddities.

The Azumanga Daioh Movie is quite weird which makes it more random than the series. Since it is more random and provides a few great laughs, I think it matches even better with Guu than the series did.

Minami-ke

Minami-ke

Meet the Minami sisters, three girls living on their own and doing their best to make it through life's little snags and adventures. Kana, the middle sister, has far more energy than common sense; Chiaki, the youngest, is more reserved, but her sharp tongue and devious mind often cause trouble for others; and Haruka, the eldest, acts like a mother to the other two, is beautiful and kind, but has a fearsome stern streak. Together, no obstacle can stand in their way, be it school, romance, or even cooking.

If you liked Azumanga Daioh - TVSM's comedy and interactions between the characters and if you're looking for something similar, Minami-ke might be just what you're looking for! Both anime feature a group of girls doing their cute, cool or dumb things, depending on their personality, creating hilarious moments aplenty!
