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?
What is Seiichirou Kitano, a boy with the heart of an angel and the face of a devil, supposed to do when he starts his new life as a first year high school student? Accidently defeat the school "guardian" and become the most famous and feared gang leader in the town, of course! With his "henchmen" Kuroda and Takehisa in tow, Kitano turns a simple act of good will into an all-out war with Hakuun High!
Both anime have pretty strange characters that get into trouble in hilarious ways. Cromartie High School is much much more random with the comedy where Angel Densetsu focuses on one aspect being the main characters face. This is kind of coming from my gut here but I think if one was liked for the humour the other will be too.
High school delinquents, crazy humor and logic, more so in Cromartie High School. Takashi and Seiichirou, our main protagonists, both are the good guys on the inside, but their actions sometimes leads them to be the most badasses of all the badasses, except Seiichirou can't do nothing about it.. But I'm sure if you liked one, you're going to enjoy the other.
Holding strictly to his family's creed, Kou Ichinomiya has never once, in his life of privilege, owed anything to anyone – that is, until a self-proclaimed Venusian named Nino saves him from drowning in the wake of a dire accident involving Kou's pants. Eternally indebted to the supposed extraterrestrial, Kou moves into her little community under the bridge along the Arakawa river. Ripped from his life of luxury and success, the young Tokyo U graduate now must adjust to his well-appointed hovel, strange new neighbors, and peculiar lover, Nino.
Their stories are completely different, the art styles are pretty different, they're both different in nearly every way; but the one thing they both have in common is their love/hate factor, mainly based on the humor, the characters and the dialogue.
They're both pretty outlandish and feature an oddball cast that can only suit their respective anime, coversations that seem pointless (Cromartie especially) and humor that only a select group would really enjoy (Others may get some laughs, but not as much).
I'm sure that if you enjoyed one, you can find some enjoyment in the other but if you disliked one, watch the other one with caution.
Both of these have a similar feel to them. The comedy mostly stems from the "rational" protagonist who slowly accepts the outragious antics of those around him as completely normal.
The episodes are made up of seperate jokes and subjects in both these animes, although I think cromartie high school has a joke/subject per episode. Both series are about students. Both series have some philosophical topics such as taking pride in being manly or what it means to be a real friend and joke about such topics by taking actions at extreme lengths to demonstrate their dedication. Both make use of humor in surreal situations but the situations are common in everyday life.
Both shows are pure comedy, and revolve around events in a high school. Only that Cromartie's school is packed full of deliquents and Daily Lives' school is a normal one.
One day, Dejiko, Puchiko and the strange ball-shaped Gema-Gema crash land their UFO in the middle of Akihabara. Without a single yen to their name they have nowhere to go, but following an unexpected and generous offer from the manager of a nearby store, the trio begin working at the shop in exchange for renting the room upstairs. Alongside Dejiko’s self-confessed rival Rabi-en-Rose, as well as a mysterious bear that has mastered the ability to appear happy, sad, depressed and angry all at once, the insanity is only just beginning! From shooting window shoppers with Dejiko’s Laser Eye Beam and the appearance of a bizarre farting impostor, to a sudden attack on the city by Godzilla, life at Gamers is certainly livening up.
Di Gi Charat has a certain cuteness factor you won't find in Cromartie, but both use random humor that doesn't make any sense to appeal to their audiences.
Di gi charat and cromartie high school are very similar, the only difference being that they have opposing styles
They're both crazy, episodic, random, parody(Does this conjugate that way?) and leave you in a state of mental shock.
Also Dejiko and puchiko appear a few times in cro high
Moving into a new neighborhood sometimes requires you to conform, in order to get along with the new people around you. Or, you can be like Takashi and make the neighborhood adjust to you! With steely determination and a new blonde perm, Takashi is ready to make himself the top dog of high school delinquents. But facing him is another recent arrival to his new school, with a hairstyle just as rebellious and radical. Faced with the fearsome 3rd year punks as well as this outside challenger, will Takashi be able to realise his dreams of classroom dominance?
Both of these OVA series have a similar feel, asides from being about the wacky school lives of delinquets. While Cromartie high would be hard to top in terms of wacky and actually has very little fighting, Kyou Kara Ore Wa!! also induces a lot of laughs off the delinquency of it's cast. If you liked one, the other is also well worth a watch.
