At Cromartie High, it’s tough being a delinquent -- a fact that do-gooder Takashi Kamiyama intimately understands. When he’s not engaging in contests of strength and rival gang wars, Kamiyama can also be found submitting punny jokes and planning his own rise to fame within the delinquents’ ranks, and that’s just the beginning! With friends like robotic Mechazawa, a giant gorilla, a hairy man from the 80s named Freddie and a clan of delinquents with mohawks that flow in the wind, how can anyone not enjoy high school?
Tenma Tsukamoto is young, bright, and smitten with the school hottie Oji Karasuma. She's desperate for his attention, which is unfortunate considering he barely gives her the time of day! Throw Kenji Harima, the school delinquent with a crush on Tenma into the mix and you've got one twisted love triangle of unrequited proportions! Can love find the trio happiness before their attention-grabbing stunts end up hurting more than their egos?
If you enjoy living vicariously through the silly adventures of high school students, you'll find both of these series fun and a lot better than the high school you went to!
Hilarious with just the right amount of random, which by the way is plenty. And oh yeah they both take place in school/classroom. Just another day in the life anime with gorillas, robots, love, and aliens. Whats not to love.
Both shows revolve around the life of a school student constantly at school. School rumble is longer and tries harder to put story behind their episodes which is necessary to some point because there are so many episodes. Cromartie is more focused on outragious comedy and will achieve it at all costs.
A delinquent is at the helm in a ship driven by oddball comedy, unorthodox situations and in Cromarite especially, hilarious conversations. Whiel the characters bounce off each other for jokes and a few gags, both have their roots in comedy and in School Rumble's case, a bit of romance. The randomness helps bring them together and both have excellent dubs.
F City, F Prefecture: the battleground where good and evil have finally chosen to decide once and for all who will rule the world…or at least that's the general idea! Neither side seems up for the task, as surviving the brutality of everyday life is enough of a chore. On the side of evil is the organization of Across, its only member the loudmouthed and abrasive Excel who struggles just to put food in her stomach; on the side of good, three disenfranchised, unemployed bachelors whose only pursuit in life is romance. Add in alien invasions, jungle warfare, and Mexican immigrant laborers to Japan, and this war doesn't seem likely to be ending soon!
Very weird things happen in Cromartie, often they make no sense, but you laugh! Similar can be said for Excel Saga. Both shows share a very wacky sense of humor where things don't always have to follow any rules of logic.
Excel Saga and Cromartie contain a certain penchant for quite bizarre humor. They really shouldn't be funny but they will have you giggling like an idiot on laughing gas.
Can a completely absurd world taken from a well-known manga be extremely fun for 26 episodes, not a single let down?
Well both this amazing show scream out "YES!". Maybe they are not the first choice if your are looking for something to squeeze your grey matter, but rest assured they'll make you laugh until you are breathless... And even beyond that point.
All Asakura wants is to graduate and become a high school teacher, but not for the reasons you’d expect: he wants to be surrounded by boobs - ample, bountiful boobs. But Asakura’s goal of mammary immersion won’t come easy, as his best friend Ishida is determined to open a flower shop with him once they graduate - that is, if they manage to graduate. Together, the duo navigates day-to-day school life with crass, whether they’re ogling their busty teacher, taking on part time jobs or dodging assassination attempts by robots.
Both shows focus on boys being boys in school. Lots of laughs to be had. Ishida to Asakura is silghtly more pervy than Cromartie High School but I'm sure fans of one would enjoy the other
Cromartie and Ishida both follow teenaged boys in their random school life antics, and are fairly slapstick to boot. The difference is that Cromartie is 5,000 times better in all ways and is actually funny, but there's no denying that the two are similar. Try the other out for size, especially if you just watched Ishida and want something better.
Delinquent (-ish for Ishida to Asakura) characters getting into random, often pointless events. Cromartie is the superior of the two but both can be fun if you're in the right mindset for either one. Abnormal characters and a school life setting where school doesn't play much of a role round them off.
Yuuko, Mio and Mai are regular high school girls who lead a normal everyday life. However, with bizarre explosions causing random objects to rain down on their heads, lunch turning into an epic battle between girl and wiener, and students riding to school on goats, their lives are anything but ordinary. Meanwhile android Nano spends her days wishing she were a normal human, but keeping house for her creator, the playful and immature child genius Hakase, dealing with talking cat Sakamoto, and trying to keep a hold of her multitude of easily-detachable body parts, her dream is far from a reality...
Both shows rarely take themselves seriously!
They're both just super random and i guess there is a story each, but it's only there because it has to be. Both these shows are there for a good waste of time. I find myself laughing nearly all the time, whether it's from a joke or just from being so ridiculous (or that I can't believe I'm watching this).
Both are about a group of students that attend the same school and do nothing but goof off more than half the time. The only difference is that Nichijou's cast is girls and Cromartie's is boys. Check one out if you liked the other for a wacky school comedy.
cats robots random things attacted to heads crazy costumes comics that go nowhere animals in schools explosions big ugly man woman things what one of these anime doesn't have the other does and they are both awsome for it
Wakame High School has its fair share of weirdos, and transfer student Fumiya "Fuumin" Okometsubu is about to meet the strangest one of all. Planning to make one hundred new friends, the first to step up to the plate is Masaru Hananakajima. Becoming an unwilling student in Masaru's secret martial arts style, the two embark on enrolling more unsuspecting victims to learn the "Sexy Commando" way of fighting. Recruiting Kyasharin, the feeblest strong man in the world; and Kondo, the aspiring manly man; the group embark on a voyage of moronic triviality. From an outrageous sleepover to playing the baseball Game of Honour, the team must finally pull together and remove their pants for the National Sexy Commando Tournament!
Both series have a very similar style of comedy, with the ever popular "gag frame," as well as their very outlandish comedy. If you like gorillas, aliens, octopus monsters, robots or living stuffed animals, you will likely enjoy these shows.
School setting, random strange characters with lots of quirks, hilarious, 10 minute episodes, and all about boys doing boy stuff. All of the above are present in both anime. Check one out if you liked the other.
