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?

Genshiken and Comic Party aren't necessarily related by story or concept, but they both focus on different aspects of otaku life. Genshiken focuses on the "modern" otaku and addresses much broader range of topics pertaining to otaku then Comic Party. Comic Party however focuses on a certain kind of otaku - the manga artist or mangaka. In Comic Party, you follow an aspiring young manga artist and his journey into the manga world. With the help of many friends, the young manga artists gets a feel of what it takes to be a successful manga artist. If you're in the mood to find anime that deals with otaku life, it's definitely worth it to check either titles out.

Genshiken, like Comic Party, is a look at the culture of a group of otaku. It's a little more realistic and a little bit more serious than Comic Party, but it's still very funny, especially to those of us who are leaning towards that lifestyle ourselves.

Both "Comic Party" and "Genshiken" deal with the world of Japanese manga/anime fandom. Their approaches to the subject are different, but that makes it all the more fun to see the way they deal with the features of fan life in Japan - from doujinshi production to big conventions.
Kafkonia
Both shows involve the slow descent of a normal student into otakudom and doujinshi. With Genshiken, the tone is somewhat more realistic, while it's more over-the-top and cartoonish in Comic Party -- perhaps because of the series' dating sim origins. Comic Party is more focussed on one character, while there are multiple focal characters in Genshiken.

If you enjoyed the comedic portrayal of otaku in either Genshiken or Comic Party then you may want to check out the other. Both series revolve around the same set of interests, but approach from different sides of the doujinshi table.

Bakuman

Bakuman

Moritaka Mashiro feels as if life is passing him by; with no dreams or motivation, he trudges through day-to-day life. One day, after leaving his notebook behind, he returns to school and finds the smartest guy in class, Takagi, waiting for him. Takagi is happy to return the book, but on the condition that Mashiro agrees to become a mangaka with him. Though Mashiro initially declines, he soon reconsiders when he discovers that the girl he likes, Azuki, dreams of becoming a voice actress. And after promising that she can have the lead role if their manga is ever adapted into an anime, he suggests that they get married once they are both successful! Shockingly, she agrees to the proposal and Mashiro and Takagi embark on their quest to become manga artists.

Both shows are about people who make manga. And both shows have romance elements. If you like one you will probably like the other.

 

unitzero

Both animes are about making manga. If you enjoy stories about mangaka then these are both must sees. Comic Party is about creators of doujin and a little more of a comedy; Bakuman is about two guys trying to make a mainstream manga series. If you like one you might like the other.

 

LunaYume

The anime and manga are both about mangaka, and their struggle to reach their goals, and make their dreams come true.

Comic Party is only different because it switches between artist styles.

To Heart

To Heart

Hiroyuki Fujita's only distinguishing trait appears to be his perpetual laziness... but he has something about him that lets him make friends with girls easily, and has a kind side that his childhood friend Akari loves. Follow their 'everyday adventures' in high school with this light schoolkid comedy.

Both Comic Party and To Heart started out as H-games by Leaf and were made into all-ages dating sims and then anime by Aquaplus. They have similar art, and the same emphasis on intriguing characters and a fun, humorous tone.
ironfrost
Comic Party is full of in-jokes directed at To Heart fans. The two shows are by the same studio and share a lot, both in terms of art style and the feel of the show.
abunai
Many of the gags in "Comic Party" make direct reference to "To Heart". If you're a fan of "To Heart", you'll get a good laugh out of them. If you like "Comic Party", then it's worth watching "To Heart", to get an idea of what all the fuss is about.

Now she only has to overcome her bashfulness with Kosuke and win his heart too!

Both Comic Party and Cosplay Complex focus on aspects of Otaku culture. While one focuses on doujinshi and the other on cosplaying, both series approach the subject matter in a similar way. Both have a reasonable amount of comedy to them and are fairly light hearted. If you like one then try the other.
