Synopsis:

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Salahare

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.

GA: Geijutsuka Art Design Class

GA: Geijutsuka Art Design Class

The students of the Geijutsuka Art Design Class study all the various fields of art, from sketching and painting to graphic design and photography. While the mischievous Noda is always thinking up new ways to have fun with her partner in crime - tomboy Tomokane - the ditzy Kisaragi is content with doodling cats in her sketchbook. With Namiko attempting (and failing) to keep the energetic duo in line, the quiet and mysterious Kyoujyu seems happy to observe the odd behavior of her classmates. Whether they are transforming a congealed lump of paint into a sculpture of a pudding, playing ‘color tag’, or making thought collages, the gang live their life to the max through both their friendships and their art.

Azumanga Daioh and GA utilize their 4koma roots to their fullest. Each episode skips back and forth to follow the wacky (and mostly unrelated) events of several girls' day-to-day lives at school. A new joke (and the resulting laughter) is never far away.

Ailly

Both series are about the lives of a group of average teenage girls, following all the random stuff that they do from a day to day basis. Cute, shy girl? Check. Obnoxiously loud tomboy? Check. Sane, mature girl? Dark, mysterious girl? And the occasional weird teacher? Check, check and check. Don't expect any seriousness from either of these shows, and love them because of it. A plus for GA is that you get to learn something about art. And well, Azumanga Daioh is just plain funny. They have quite a similar feel to them and if you liked one, don't be afraid to check out the other.
