Two funny slice of life shows about the life of an otaku. Doujin Work and Otaryman share the same audience, humor, and themes. If you enjoyed one of these otaku shows you will likely find the other just as appealing.

Gag Manga Biyori

Gag Manga Biyori
  • TV (12 eps x 5 min)
  • 2005

What do you do when the Emperor of Japan has been replaced with... an alien from Planet Octopus?! From intense motorcycle races to crazy machine inventors from Holland, from sea voyages to battles about emo trading cards, there's never a dull moment in the life of the bizarre. Join an eclectic cast as they are visited by a Ramen Fairy, are reincarnated over and over, solve cases like detective pros, and overall have a laughably ridiculous time!

There's plenty of anime about nothing out there, but Gag Manga and Boku Otaryman seem to fit the bill. Otaryman doesn't go all over the map like Gag Manga, but they have a similar feel.

Genshiken

Genshiken

Ever wanted to join an anime club but felt its geekiness would hurt your reputation? Sasahara feels your pain. Genshiken, the Society for the Study of Modern Visual Culture, is an organization of college otaku obsessed with anime, manga and video games. Their daily activities include holding impromptu cosplay photo shoots, braving the crowds and avoiding injury at doujinshi conventions, and tolerating harassment by Saki, a girl irked by her boyfriend's otaku-ness! It's a perfect match for Sasahara's interests, so why is it so difficult for him to join?

Though Otaryman takes a slice of life approach to the topic- both Otaryman and Genshiken showcase the otaku lifestyle in a comedic fashion. If you enjoyed the antics from one of these shows check out the other.

Hataraki Man

Hataraki Man

28-year-old Hiroko Matsukata is the definition of a workaholic. On top of smoking too much, rarely having sex and having lousy luck nurturing her romantic life, she works excessively to get the job done. Alongside many co-workers at the weekly news magazine Jidai, Hiroko tirelessly works on countless stories – thus negating any chance of a social life. Can Hiroko balance her home and work life, or is she doomed to be a 'working man' forever?

If you're in the mood for a salaryman anime but don't want the randomness, check out Hataraki Man, a much more mature, serious look at the life of a salary(woman).

Lucky Star

Lucky Star

In present day Japan, the life of a school girl is never dull. The easily-bored Konata never finds time to study because of her otaku habits, which frustrates hard-working Kagami to no end. On the other hand, laid-back Tsukasa always manages to go with the flow, while Miyuki is concerned with keeping her status as resident know-it-all. Join these four girls as they muse and meander their way through everyday events such as eating chocolate cones, doing homework, gaming, and trips to the beach galore.

Although Lucky Star doesn't focus soley on the otaku lifestyle, it makes a good recommendation to Otaryman pace and humor wise. These two shows are filled with comedy and situtations no otaku would be stranger to. If you liked one of these shows you should watch the other!
