Karin

Karin

Karin is a vampire, but as fate would have it she is a freak among her own kind; for Karin doesn’t drink the blood of her counterparts – she is cursed to be a blood maker, forcing her to inject her extra blood into her victims. What’s worse is that if she doesn’t find an outlet for the blood in time, it explodes in a massive nose bleed of impressive volume. In Karin's twisted day-going state, she finds it nearly impossible to find safe victims; so, nose bleeds are a major problem. When transfer student and new classmate Usui Kenta proves to have exactly the kind of emotions her vampire nature most enjoys, she finds herself in comedic dire straights!

Comedy! Karin and Azumanga Daioh are two anime that will keep smiles on your faces! Karin has a little more drama/depth to it than Azumanga but the characters in both shows are goofy and loveable. They were both two anime that I was forced to watch episode after episode. Azumanga Daioh is lighthearted with simple high school girl humor. I admit I stalled on that one because I didn't want it to end. I can assure you that you will be pleased after watching either one of these shows. Karin is the oddest vampire you'll ever meet whereas Osaka (Azumanga) is slow and silly. Ahh I can't put it into words anymore... go watch!

If you're looking for hilarious school life shows, both AD and Karin fit the bill. Although Karin is more fantastical than AD, they both are funny and heart-warming. Both series really let one fall in love with the characters.

Azumanga Daioh and Dragon Half are from different generations of anime. Dragon Half is a lot older, but both are about a girl who hangs out with her friends and gets into trouble. So if you are the type of person who likes watching groups of friends getting into mischief, you should watch both of these anime.

Azumanga Daioh and Dragon Half go hand in hand together as anime reserved for those who aren't afraid to be showered in pure random slapstick! They keep you laughing every minute until the end, no matter how much your boyfriend hits you with the couch pillow whenever you suggest watching it.

Bamboo Blade

Bamboo Blade

Kojirou-sensei, the rather indifferent teacher and coach of the school kendo club, is in financial dire straits. As a result, he makes a bet with his fellow kendo coach and former upperclassman to see who can assemble and train the better female kendo team, with the prize for Kojirou being a year's supply of food if he wins. Motivated by the idea of free food for a year, he begins to teach the club seriously; however, most of its members have already graduated, and so he is tasked with assembling members in addition to training them for the competition with his rival. While dealing with his eccentric students, he slowly rediscovers why he loves kendo and what it truly means to be a teacher.

Like Bamboo Blade, Azumanga Daioh centers around a group of high school girls and a bunch of running gags. The key difference between the two is approach - Bamboo Blade leans toward more three-dimensional, empathetic characters mixed with a bit of drama whereas Azumanga sticks 100% to its humorous premise. Still, the two are similar in many ways, and a liking of one is bound to lead to a liking of the other.

Both series feature random humor at its MOST hilarious. The characters drive both of these series, and their diverse personalities clash constantly creating very funny situations. I guarantee if you liked one of these grand comedic achievements you will like the other.
