Takisawa Noboru is the new "blazing transfer student" at Honjakuniku High School -- an educational institution where matters are settled by the only logical thing: fighting! With his first 5 minutes marred by an unpleasant encounter with hall monitor Jonoichi Yukari, Noboru knows he's off to a bad start; but things only get worse from there! To win the heart of the fair maiden Takamura Yukari, Noboru must battle the resident badass of the school, Mushicho Ibuki, before Ibuki wins her as a trophy in the arena!
Ryuuko Matoi is a fiery, feisty girl on a vengeful mission: she’ll find her father’s murderer at all costs, with only a giant red scissor blade as a clue to the villain’s whereabouts. Using the item as a weapon, she fights her way into the terrifying Honnouji Academy to track down a lead, unaware that the institute is brutally governed by a student council that’s anything but ordinary. Wielding special “Goku uniforms”, the group, led by president Satsuki, uses superpowers to keep the student body in check - but things are about to change now that Ryuuko’s in town!
Both are about a hyper transfer student coming to a new school and upsetting the status quo. They both have a retro feel and are chock-full of hotblooded antics and are full of unabashed action.
Both anime share the same concept of transfer studen coming to a new school and making things go wild. With lots of action and a good amount of bizarre, there's a chance that fans of one might like the other.
For Banji Suke and his family, living in one place for more than a few months seems impossible, as the childish antics of both Banji and his father keep getting them kicked out of their neighborhoods! After yet another move, Banji finds himself attending the Amazon Academy, but there's a catch: because of a mixup, his uniform is... for a girl?! Fearing certain humiliation in front of his classmates, he decides to do the only sensible thing -- masquerade as a woman.
With a similar art style, both shows focus much more on fast paced action rather than establishing characters, instead just riffing off popular archetypes. Oshii Mamoru these are not, but for a bit of mindless fun with generic but funny characters you could do a lot worse.
Ancient cave paintings left by the Super Paleolithic people tell of a great disaster befalling the people of Earth, when the evil Kyokka space empire will come to destroy all that we know and love. Humanity’s only chance lies in the prehistoric schematics for a super battle robot called Gekigangar 3! But even such a weapon is futile if there is not courage, love, and friendship among the brave humans fighting for peace and freedom! At least that’s what the crew of the Nadesico cruiser expect when they go to see the Gekigangar 3 marathon at the theatre…
They're both short OVAs that are highly enjoyable pastiches of classic 70' and 80'ss anime, ableit different genres: sports and giant robots, respectively. The art style, animation, music and tropes are highly evocative of the era, and to top it all of, they're both incredibly hot-blooded. If you liked one of them be sure to check out the other.
Satoshi and Arumi have been friends since early childhood, but now Arumi's family is moving to Hokkaido, deeply upsetting her long-time friend. However, when Arumi's grandfather accidentally breaks the pelican statue atop his restaurant, the duo find their world turned upside down and not quite as they left it. From a fairy tale kingdom, to kung fu China, to the prehistoric age and everything in between, Arumi and Satoshi can't quite seem to figure out where they are, or better yet, how they can manage to get home to their own Abenobashi Shoutengai!
Two hilarious parodies of genre cliches from Gainax. Blazing Transfer Student merely mocks the shonen sports genre, while Abenobashi covers a whole variety of anime genres, but if you laughed a lot at one, consider giving the other a try as well.
In the name of keeping global peace, politicians have come up with a new method of sorting out disputes: they meet in locations across the world and wager on a game of Mahjong. Koizumi is the former Prime Minister of Japan’s Cabinet who is not only a Mahjong master, but won't let anything stop him from attending a game – not even three bullets to the chest from hired hitmen! No matter what obstacles appear in his path, be they alien-controlled ministers, weapons of mass destruction hurtling towards Tokyo, or the resurrected form of Chairman Mao, Koizumi will play his best hand, down to the very last tile.
Both cannot be taken seriously at all. One's about boxing, the other's about mahjong and both are about cheese. It's serious business in the political world of Mudazumo Naki Kaikaku and serious business in the school ring to win a girl in Blazing Transfer Student. Where they lack in anything plot-related, character related or sensible, they make up for in spades with absurdity, ham, aforementioned cheese and being a parody of the genres they represent. If you enjoy comedies that are senseless and stupid, sign right up for both!
