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?
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.
In a normal neighborhood in a normal city, a young maid arrives from the maid village to help out a young unnamed girl. But this battery-operated being is no ordinary maid! Not only can she remove her head and turn her body into glue (amongst other things), Cheko-chan also has the wackiest of friends. From Mizore, the edible snow spirit from the north, to Nachiko, a large squid who likes to change faces, to Kanato the Yankee, the bully who is the strongest of them all, it seems the craziness has just begun in the life of a once typical high school student.
These are seemingly different series, but they share one major theme: odd otherworldly humor. One thing to look out for: Cromartie has very square, pseudo-serious art, while Pugyuru is totally kawaii (=cute).
If you like the premise of either series and don't care about art, these are both series for you.
Both Cromartie High School and Pugyuru feature very similarly absurd humor, in episodes short enough to not be overwhelming. Both also parody school delinquints, have several high school students that aren't human, and a student that just can't get anyone to listen to their name.
In ancient Rome, renowned architect Lucius is down on his luck. He has been fired because his style of buildings is unfashionable, and all the bathhouses in the city are noisy, boisterous places that no longer prioritize relaxation. To get some peace and quiet, he sinks below the surface of the water, the only place where his fellow bathers' chatter can't reach him, but a powerful drain pulls him into the depths! Upon emerging, he finds himself in a vastly different bathhouse, and though the architect believes it's just the slaves' quarter, he's actually been pulled through time to modern-day Japan! Now, armed with knowledge of these strange new baths, Lucius is determined to restore his reputation and revolutionize the Roman bathing culture!
If you have a bizzare sense of humor like me, you might enjoy one, or both of these titles.
They require you to check your logical brain at the baggage counter, as you embark on Dry-sillyness. It is the best way i can describe each show.
There is something similar about the overall animation style. It really is as if manga stills have been layered on a screen. They are stiff and it is part of their charm.
If you liked one, you might want to give the other a shot.
Cromartie High School and Thermae Romae both share a similar sense of humour.
Both show's are very similar in style to alot of Adult Swim shows like Aqua Teen Hunger Force etc
If your a fan of one you'll certainly enjoy the other.
Fumizuki Academy is divided into classes ranked based purely on ability; Class A has laptops, reclining seats and ultimate comfort whereas Class F has to settle for a rundown classroom with rotten cushions and rickety coffee tables. Akihisa Yoshii has recently taken the placement exam and finds himself relegated to the lowly Class F along with many of his friends, and they’re far from impressed with their draughty facilities. Luckily, not all is lost as at Fumizuki, classes can declare war on each other to swap rooms by fighting with summoned characters whose strength is based on the users' test scores. As they dream of escaping their decrepit circumstances, the ‘idiotic’ students of Class F will try whatever they can to reach the dizzy heights of Class A’s luxury, even if it means taking on the entire school in an all-out summoning war!
High schools, where one has attractive gals and Hideyoshi, the other has... well, hardly any females or anyone remotely attractive. But there's Freddie. Even though both are school-based comedies with durastically different art styles, they have their fair share of the straight man/foolish man comedy routine, gags and some hilarious troll logic.
It is the year 300X, and the Earth is in peril! Tsuru Tsururiina, the evil dictator of the Margarita Empire has sent his elite troops to Earth to snatch every last hair on the heads of the unsuspecting populace! But there is one man who will stand up against the malicious invasion and save everyone from the terrible horror of baldness: Boboboubo Boubobo! Using his secret art of nose hair combat, Boubobo will not rest until the Margarita forces are gone from Earth for good. But can he succeed without the help of the pink-haired girl Beauty, or the mysterious Pickle that follows him around?
Between both of these animes; both are entirely silly. Both animes don't really make sense but they are fun to watch if your up to losing brain cells; Cromartie and Bobobo are funny animes when you watch them, so you'll like them both if you like funny things.
