Though a typical salaryman, Yoshitani's days couldn't be livelier. Whether he's dealing with an invasive Kleenex box, reading hentai manga at a café, getting lectured on his poor fashion, trying to avoid high school girls or even doing laundry, Yoshitani attempts to navigate the workplace and life with vigor!
There's a new teacher in town – Spelunker! This unusual man is anything but a typical instructor, giving speeches about traffic safety to the students, reacting strangely to a humidifier, and enjoying lunch – albeit with ample condiment mishaps. With such a bizarre new role model to learn from, Spelunker's students will never be the same!
Coming from the same studio, there's no surprise that these two are animated similarly and have a similar feel. That being said, Spelunker is WAY better. Both show small, comedic and random vignettes.
Eighteen-year-old Aida Yurume has moved to Tokyo to prepare for her entrance exams. She slowly finds her way to Maison de Wish, her new home away from home; and there, she meets her new housemates Kumi, Sae and Matsukichi. Together, the quartet participates in a variety of slow-paced adventures, from shooting off a solitary firework to deciding who will clean out a moldy rice cooker. Whether it’s trying to escape the heat or hiding under a kotatsu, Aida will experience many things with her new friends at Maison de Wish.
Yurumates and Otaryman aren't remotely similar in theme, but they both have a slice of life feel with next to no plot. They each consist of mini random episodes that make up their respective OVAs; and their focus on comedy is another thing they have in common. If you liked one of these easy-going shows you should take a chance on the other.
