Sketchbook ~full color's~

Kajiwara Sora is a shy girl who loves to draw. She's a member of the art club at school, even though one of the other members scares her sometimes. She finds drawing things like flowers or fruit easy enough, but she puzzles over how to capture more fleeting moments, like the flapping of a bird's wings or a cat that won't sit still. There are things she can draw, and things she can't draw, and with the help of her friends in the art club, she's going to experience them all to the fullest.

You can say that Sketchbook is the Azumanga Daioh of 2007.

Both shows are slice-of-life high school anime, and have both warm and calm moments and even crazy and funny moments.

Azumanga Daioh fans will definitely enjoy Sketchbook Full - Color's.

Imagine if Sakaki and Osaka where to fuze together and then decided to join an art club, that would be Sketchbook ~full color's~. Oddly enough Sora looks like a mix between Sakaki and Ayamu

Both series are student comedies in which life passes placidly. The point of the story consists on the relationships betwen the multiple characters. Don't expect spectacular animations or epic battles.

Working!!

Working!!

Self-professed lover of all things small and cute, Souta Takanashi finds himself dragooned into working at the Wagnaria family restaurant by the diminutive and vivacious Poplar Taneshima. Though the pay is reasonable and the clientele polite, the high school student is often at his wits' end when dealing with the quirky staff. If the indifferent and street-tough manager, katana-carrying floor chief, and terminally weak Poplar weren't enough, Souta frequently fears for his life, as every encounter with the violently androphobic Inami ends in injury. How long can he survive before the combined stress and harm do him in?

If you liked the comedy in Working!!, especially when people have trouble seeing something so obvious it makes you laugh, I'd say give Azumanga Daioh a try. Each series also has a large number of extremely unique characters that makes for good comedy.

captaincrunch captaincrunch says...

Both series are very good at the slice-of-life comedy genre.  Although Azumanga takes place at school and Working!! in a diner, they share a lot of simlarities, mostly in the way each show approaches the delivering of jokes and the personalities of the characters.

You can think of Azumanga as a predecessor to Working!!'s style.  If you liked one, you might want to check out the other.

Both have rather similar feel to them. Can't really put my finger on it but they give the same vibe, it's like they take place in the same universe kind of thing :)

Neither has any real plot, but is rather random slice of life humour thing. 

Shinryaku! Ika Musume

Shinryaku! Ika Musume

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?

To put it simply, pure comedy.  These are both very simple shows with colorful characters, excellent timing, and solid writing.  It helps that the animation matches the content in quality, too.  They share similarities in that viewers can easily sit down and be entertained for the full 24 minutes they're watching, without exception.  If you're in the mood for laughs, you cannot go wrong with either of these series.

eaper eaper says...

Each of these series are light comedies in a very episodic nature. If you like random comedy with a dash of moe and want to watch something that isn't serious at all, then these shows go together quite well.

Nicknames Nicknames says...

Both are episodic anime that have the same random and lighthearted sense of humor. If you liked one you'll like the other too.

Azumanga Daioh and Bottle Fairy have many similarities especially in the lack of story, to begin with. Both anime can be seen in a wrong order or if you miss an episode, it's just about funny moments of life. Plus, the characters are the same standards (you can easily find similaritues between Sarara and Osaka!). Both series are really funny, and doesn't implied strong thinking (but you'll need to pause Bottle Fairy to understand some japanese puns!). On the other hand, when Bottle Fairy is about fairies who discover the human world, Azumanga is about high school life and relationships.

JAhU JAhU says...

Azumanga Daioh and Bottle Fairy have some similar characters, both contain hilarious randomness and deadly moeness. If you liked one the other one should suite your taste as well.

Bunch of girls having funny adventures.... Highly recommended

Shadizzy Shadizzy says...

Both these animes are very alike, both in laugh out loud comedy with crazy characters to boot. Galaxy Angels is basically the Azumanga Diaoh in outer space. Each of the cast has a unique personality which contributes greatly into making both these animes very entertaining to watch.
