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.

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

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

Sketchbook ~full color's~

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

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.

Jakounezumi

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.

Both have that nice brand of school-based comedy without delving into absolute perversion and sleaze, and are pleasant to watch, the stuff to get you smiling again. They're fun and if you liked one, you'll definitely like the other.

XxMicrochibixX

Both Azumanga Daioh and Acchi Kocchi are random slice of life series that take place in high school. Acchi Kocchi has a little bit of romance in it while Azumanga does not, but both series are very funny and if you enjoy one you will probably enjoy the other.

You should definitely enjoy the over the top humor and zaniness of this show, as well as the short format, which allows a lot of the humor to be packed into one place without too many dull spots.
freakzilla

In both Azumanga and Mini-Goddess, the humor goes more overboard than in average comedy anime. Both are episodic and have similar-feeling pacing. With 99% certainty I can say you'd like both of these anime.
