Ten-year-old genius Chiyo, animal-loving Sakaki, loudmouth Tomo, athletic Kagura, weight-conscious Yomi and dim-witted Osaka are six friends who share laughs, good times, and a high school homeroom. With scary (and sometimes perverted) teachers, school festivals, penguin suits and general hilarity abounding, you can be sure that there's never a dull day in the life of one of these students!
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.
Minami-ke is about three quirky sisters, their lives at home and school, and their friends. Like Azumanga Daioh, the humour is random, the series easy-going, the plot about every-day happenings: things we can all relate to. And it's brilliant. It's an anime that derives fun from the most normal of settings, and is based on girls with well developed personalities.
I can safely say: if you enjoyed Azumanga Daioh, give Minami-ke a chance.
If you like Azumanga then I'm willing to bet you'd also find Minami-ke funny. They both have the same kind of short, punchy jokes laced with sarcasm.
Though the situations in Minami-ke are entirely different from Azumanga, the characters are similar and so is the important part, the humor. While watching this I kept thinking of Azumanga. Something about the pacing and characters. One, in particular seems like a marriage of Osaka and Tomo.
Go check it out.
Both Azumanga Daioh and Minami-ke flaunt humorous, entirely character-centered storylines based upon randomality. While presented in differing settings, each share the same premise of mindless, light-hearted comedy, and thus the liking of one would equate the liking of the other. If you're looking to turn your brain off for a few hours and laugh, Azumanga and Minami are great compliments to one another.
They both are shows about regular daily life.
They both have a wide range of character where every character differs from the next one.
They both also have similiar quirky and low-meld sense of humor.
Azumanga Diaoh and Minami-ke are very similar in the sense that the whole story (in both animes) revolves around the everyday lives of the characters and teh zany situations that they get themselves into. Lots of fun to be had in both these animes :D
Azumanga and Minami-ke are both slice of life comedies with a female central cast. In both of these series (as is the case in nearly all comedies in this genre) the characters drive episodic type (mini) plots. Both series have quite the diverse cast of characters, each of which you get to know well. Azumanga has a larger central character list, while Minami-ke primarily features a 3 girl family. Nontheless you will love the Minami girls if you loved the girls from Azumanga and vice-versa. If you liked either of these series, you will definitely like the other.
They are both totally random and hilarious. They both parody SoL anime without going all the way out of reality. Both are highly re-watchable and just plain enjoyable. Plot need not apply.
While Minami-ke is a lot "calmer" than Azumanga (which is stating the obvious, almost every nonspastic show is), both shows are excellent at scoring laughs and grins. Both shows excel in their cast of characters, each one having a distinct personality and fulfilling a specific role. If you liked one of these, and are looking for something similar, but more spastic or calmer, check this one out.
Both of those Anime have similiar sense of humor and main character. Both gave us fun an very high level. There are both light and you can watch them any time. So go ahead and start watching.
Naota Nanbada is a boring young boy who leads a boring life in a boring town. His older brother has left for America, and the closest he comes to any excitement is when his deadbeat dad has too much sake. But things change one day when a bizarre girl zooms up to him on a scooter and smacks him in the face with her guitar. What's more, once Naoto returns home he discovers that this strange woman has arrived ahead of him and moved in! Not only does she constantly engage in perverted activities with Naota's father and flirt with the young man himself, but she also claims to be an alien who is searching for the ‘Pirate King.' Now, Naota must learn to live with this new intruder, deal with an odd government agent who sports exceptionally large eyebrows and the mysterious Medical Mechanica, and come to terms with the fact that there are a variety of robots and weapons emerging out of his head - amongst other things. Perhaps boring wasn't so bad after all...
Both Azumanga and FLCL are shows based a lot on randomness, and can be rather strange. They also deal with a/some highschool student(s). Although Azumanga is funnier, and more entertaining, you may just like one if you liked the other.
FLCL is a much shorter series compared to Azumanga Daioh, but it's pretty random, strange and funny like Azumanga.
FLCL and Azumanga Daioh are both wacky, random, and have no real plot. Though they are different in story, the randomness and weirdness in FLCL manages to top Azumanga. If you like one, you'd like the other.
Azumanga Daioh and FLCL have some unrecognizably great similarites. FLCL and Azumanga Daioh have great plots filled with ALOT of random humor both of these shows are SOOO random it makes the really funny to watch, so i think if you liked FLCL or Azumanga Daioh, then you will really enjoy the other one
Both on top of my fav. anime list. They share the fun and eccentric characters, some very cool quotes, and most importantly, both are a joy to watch! altho Azumanga Daioh is more random, and has more comedy, FLCL is more wtf?! fast paced, and has more of a story to it.
Yuno is a high school student who dreams of becoming a famous artist; and after being admitted at Yamabuki High School of Arts, she is one step closer to her dream. Yuno must move to an apartment complex near the school, and there, in Hidamari-so, she meets three new friends: Miyako, a very active person who will do anything to get her hands on something to eat; Hiro, an upperclassman who is obsessed with weight gain; and Sae, the oldest of the bunch and also a tomboy. From wild cosplaying teachers to bizarre school myths, Yuno and friends enjoy fun times and crazy days at Yamabuki High!
Azumanga Daioh is more or less the epitome of the sub-genre of anime dealing with a humorous slice-of-life story of a group of girls experiencing school life together. Many later anime have built on this basic theme, though few with anything approaching AzuDai's style and wit. One of the better of the type is Hidamari Sketch, which is sure to appeal to fans of AzuDai. The only thing left is to decide which series has the wackiest teacher.
Hidamari Sketch and Azumanga Daioh both center around the lives of a select group of high school students. Both anime also make very good use of plausible yet improbable scenarios that work directly to show the eccentricities of each character in a humorous way. While Hidamari is quite a bit more stylized than Azumanga, both of the series have kept strong with their Manga roots by using a number of the conventional visual cues usually dropped when a series goes from print to screen. What really sets the two series apart however, is that while both anime use the standard events of a high school's yearly schedule to build the story, Hidamari Sketch does not do so in chronological order, which can be somewhat disorienting at first.
If you decided that azumanga didn't have enough drawing, or if you wanted a show with nothing in common but the comedy and highschool girls, hidamari sketch is for you
A bunch of high school girls living their everyday life, being totally random and cute while having a lot of fun! Another distinguishing thing is that both shows frequently switch from the usual anime animation to more manga-styled drawing in order to highlight its jokes.
These are the basic elements of both Azumanga Daioh and Hidamari Sketch, and with these things in common, if you liked one, you should definitely give the other a go.
These anime revolve around a group of schoolgirls. Both are slow paced and have a lot of funny situations and well thought out jokes. (Quality over Quantity) On top of that give the same overal feel to it.
While HS has a very different art style, it is one of the anime that have best used the kind of storytelling AD made popular. It's still not as good as AD though.
A group of girls doing their really odd girly things with the occasional face of a really odd mascot showing up on screen.Cute, but not really funny, comedy paired with not much else to speak of.
Both shows are very laid back with no attention span required to enjoy. If you are into that, you'd love both shows.
Yukino had it all. Brilliant, athletic, popular and pretty, she was the perfect school girl with many friends and admirers. But then one fateful day she met her match: a handsome young man named Arima. Now, not only is he beating her at her own game, she's becoming more and more dismayed to learn that she's developing her first real feelings of romance. Can Yukino maintain her model student appearance, or will love ruin all her plans?
If you like school anime like Azumanga Daioh, Kareshi Kanojo No Jijou (KareKano) would be a good one to watch. KareKano is a bit more thought-provoking than Azumanga, and is not as weird, but it's alot of fun too. I laughed a lot when I watched KareKano and like it better than Azumanga, since that one is just too much sometimes.
High school, high school and more high school. That is what these 2 are all about.
Kare Kano of course also has some romance in it and Azumanga daioh does not, but other than that animation comes close together and so it the humor.
Friendship is also a big tag for the both of them.
It's the first day of high school, and plenty of school clubs are doing their best to recruit new members. However, for ditzy Yui, none of them seem to fit the bill. However, when she accidentally signs up to join the light music club, Yui begins a hilarious adventure to become a world class guitarist! There's just one problem: she's never played the guitar before in her life! Joined by bassist Mio, drummer Ritsu and keyboardist Tsugumi, Yui and the gang will juggle their studies with buying instruments, learning how to read music and even performing in the school festival, all in the hopes of someday becoming a successful band!
Azumanga Daioh is one of the most famous and awesome random/slice of life/comedy titles surrounding a group of girls, and K-on is the newest on the block. While they have a bit different of an animation style, fans of one will ABSOLUTELY like the other. Just trust me.
Of course it's near impossible for an anime to be better then Azumanga Dai-oh, but K-On! comes close to it.
Both animes are focusing on the every-day-life of a couple of schoolgirls, but K-On! is more orientated to music where Azumanga Dai-oh has no specific subject next to the normal everyday school life.
Both animes have the standard stereotypes, like the clumsy one, the smart one, the idiotic one, etc. the only difference is that Azumanga Dai-oh just has a lot more of them. Also Azumanga Dai-oh is more a chain of short stories whereas K-On! tells a more continues story.
It's near impossible to like one and not like the other. If you liked either one of them, I can guarantee you will like the other one.
K-ON! had the same bubly excitement that I felt watching this series and had me wanting more even after the series were done.
Azumanga Daioh and K-On! are about a group of girls living through their everyday little school and whatnot adventures. Laughter and randomness is the best way to describe these titles, along with a variety of lovable characters whose interactions are funny and cute.
These two anime show that a bunch of cute girls doing nothing can be fun. Warning! Extreme amount of moe! :)
Both shows are easy going Slice of Life shows about schoolgirls with a sense of humor that crosses over occasionally. If you like one you will surely enjoy the other.
High School girls? Check. Moe? Check. A main character that lives in her own fantasy woorld most of the time? Double Check. Rich friend with a summer house that seems to be a plot point? Uh... check. Perhaps the main difference is the music, which Azumanga does not feature, but K-On! does. But, if you're looking for some cute fun, these anime are for you!
