Synopsis:

Shirase Akira is a genius hacker who has earned the nickname "Battle Programmer Shirase" (or BPS for short) for his incredible talent. From saving corporations to global security, BPS is always willing to help a hand -- for the right price. But for skills like his, money is not an option, so be sure to have specialized computer parts, sold-out tickets, or huggable life-sized cat girl posters to spare! With BPS in charge, no computer is safe! That is, if he can manage to stop being a complete slacker...

Gunsmith Cats

Gunsmith Cats

Rally Vincent and Minnie May are twogirls with a lot of fire power. When they are not busy managing their gun store, they are working as bounty-hunter duo the Gunsmith Cats. Rally's incredible gunslinging skills and Minnie's obsession for big explosions make the GunSmith Cats a deadly force, and every task an adventure.

Both Gunsmith Cats and Battle Programmer Shirase are steeped in comedy, action, and suspense. Though the former anime has a bit more of the two latter elements, I feel that Gunsmith Cats shares nicely with the theme of international intrigue and professional rivalry that Battle Programmer Shirase has. Though a gun is fired all of one time in BPS, fans of the dramatic flare in Gunsmith Cats will like to watch BPS for the laughs at least, and fans of BPS will enjoy GC for its fast paced action.

Kyou no Go no Ni

Kyou no Go no Ni

Fifth grade is a time for learning and growing and... getting into a whole mess of trouble! Class 5-2 is a "typical" fifth-grade class whose members always seem to be up to something. The leaders of their group are Ryota and Chika - Ryota's childhood friend who has a crush on him that she can’t seem to confess. While Chika continues on, remaining a close and valued friend, Ryota continues to be a typical boy who is oblivious to her feelings. Furthermore, he can’t seem to stay out of trouble with the ladies! Different situations keep their lives busy during school – everything from loose teeth to getting locked in the PE storage room. School is much more enjoyable when you are young and full of dreams!

There are loads of things that are similar in Kyou no Go no Ni and Battle Programmer Shirase, such as the "different" atmosphere: it's not really laid-back since there is some stuff going on, but not enough stuff to get your blood pumping or make you burst out in laughter.

Another thing is the hints of ecchi, which are funny relief without turning the story into anything really serious.

Martian Successor Nadesico

Martian Successor Nadesico

When Akito Tenkawa went looking for answers about his parents' deaths, he had no idea that he'd be indoctrinated into the spaceship Nadesico not only as a cook, but also as a mecha pilot – a job he wants nothing to do with! Alongside his childhood friend Yurika, stoic Ruri, otaku Gai and other misfit crewmates, Akito and the Nadesico crew find themselves in the middle of a brutal war against both the dreaded Jovian Lizards, and the military itself, who wants the civilian ship under their control...

This is a bit of a strange recommendation to make, but I honestly believe if you enjoy one, you will appreciate the other.

Both have a slightly older animation style and similar characters thrust into a military role to help save the world. There are reasonably short arcs in both, that mean you can pick them up and put them down as necessary.

The flow of these shows is also quite similar, and there are some brilliant comedic moments to both. Highly recommended.

Read or Die

Read or Die

Secret agent for the British Libraries, Yomiko Readman, has an infatuation with books. When she purchases one of the books that contain the notes for a plan to purge the world of humanity, Yomiko (along with the help of Ms. Deep and Drake) uses her powers of paper manipulation to stop a group of resurrected men from fulfilling the plan.

Read or Die and Battle Programmer SHIRASE both have a great and fun campy feel, that ends up being pure entertainment. BPS is definitely more of a comedy, while Read or Die is a great action flick, but both definitely have a similar feel to them.

Rizelmine

Rizelmine
  • TV (24 eps x 14 min)
  • 2002

In the present, the Japanese government has been conducting experiments to genetically engineer a human: a girl named Rizel. The experiment was a success -- sort of. While healthy and cheerful, 12-year-old Rizel also ended up possessing the uncanny need for “love” to further her development, as well as tears which were in fact volitile explosives! When sadness can end up destroying a city block, what's a girl to do except... get married?! For Iwari Tomori, the young man chosen as the most appropriate partner for Rizel, life is about to change, for better or for worse!

Both BPS and Rizelmine are absurd comedies that present themselves with a straight face and contain plenty of ecchi, for the more perverted audience members out there. Both series are shorter in length then your average TV anime, and both series rely on telling the same joke over and over to a hilarious effect. For example, in BPS there is a certain situation that happens almost exactly the same way every other episode driving the "plot" forward. In Rizelmine, there are situations and reoccurring jokes that get reused over and over and over until you lose count. While the plots and settings of each anime are different, the type of humor used in both is very similar. Therefore, if you enjoyed one of these shows you will definitely like the other.
