Super GALS! Kotobuki Ran

Super GALS! Kotobuki Ran

Kotobuki Ran has a whole family line of relatives working in the police force. Her aunts and uncles are officers, her dad is a police chief, and even her brother is a working policeman. Ran has no interest in being a policewoman; she has problems of her own, and her own style of dealing with them - the GAL way! Friends need boyfriends, shoes need to be bought, and nails need to be done. Despite Ran's wreckless and troublesome behavior, Ran has a strong sense of justice, and she's always willing to help her friends out of trouble. With her two best friends Miyu and Aya, they live life as GALs, building romance and creating memorable fun!

If you liked Azudai and are okay with looking past large amounts of femininity (and can get past the word femininity) then this show will not dissapoint in the end.

Also, if you liked Super gals, then you'd like azudai for being the best comedy/slice of life out there.

However, the main seperation between the two is that Azudai aims towards boys and Super girls aims towards girls. As long as you don't mind that, you can really enjoy either anime.

To Heart

To Heart

Hiroyuki Fujita's only distinguishing trait appears to be his perpetual laziness... but he has something about him that lets him make friends with girls easily, and has a kind side that his childhood friend Akari loves. Follow their 'everyday adventures' in high school with this light schoolkid comedy.

This character driven series has its funny moments but it's not over the top humor of Azumanga. Watch To Heart if you're looking for a high school anime with lovable characters and a story that you don't have to brace yourself for. It's a very relaxed series best watched on days when you are feeling nostalgic. If Azumanga is to weird/hectic high school days; To Heart is to first dates/just friends? squemish high school days.

Toradora!

Toradora!

Ryuuji Takasu has an eventful life: his classmates think he's a delinquent due to his 'killer' eyes; his crush Minori seems ever out of reach; and he’s just had an unfortunate encounter with 'palm-sized Taiga' – a feisty and dainty wench in his class. With different cleaning habits and tempers, the two clash like night and day; that is, except for the fact that Taiga and Ryuuji have crushes on the other's good friend! With school rumors abounding, the duo must now work together to play matchmaker for each other. Who will end up with their true love?

While Toradora! has a romantic focus and Azumanga is focused just on slice-of-life comedy, both series have a similar style of comedy, based around the character's wild personalities. This is particularly evident in Toradora! with Minori, who often acts like a more energetic version of Osaka. They also use some of the similar "typical" highschool episodes, like the characters going to a beach house during summer break and a few episodes centered around the school pool. If you thought one series was funny, it's likely you'll enjoy the comedy in the other.

These shows are about equal in bizarreness. the main difference between them is fanservice and separate dimensions.

Both Azumanga and Yurumates share a similar sense of humor. Though the situtations are fairly different- the way the characters humorously react to things and to each other is the same.
