Synopsis:

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.

Excel Saga

Excel Saga

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!

While watching DiGi Charat, I really got a feeling: "Hey, this looks quite a bit like excel saga". The reasons for this are the fast paced humor and the weird humor. As said in the description of DiGi Charat: "guest appearances including Godzilla, a mute bear, and a possessive clam spirit". While Excel Saga had nearly a story at all, DiGi Charat is worse. Even after thinking about it again, I can't figure out what the series was all about. I do not think everyone who liked Excel will like DiGi Charat, since there is less plot, more nuttyness and the jokes are intended for less mature audience.
freakzilla
Top recs, going from facial expressions to randommy hyperness, everything in Di GI Charat reminded me of Excel Saga. If you like your anime weird, random and hyper theses are two animes to your liking.
TheBurningCrow
Both of these series are completely random and weird, so they definately fit together. The characters are ALL very dramatic. And of course both of these series are extremely hillarious.
ENTROPY

Both Di Gi Charat and Excel Saga involve overly cute, at times annoying, cliche anime girls that use bizarre, irreverent, and often self-depreciating humor that breaks down the fourth wall. Both also use anime clichés for comedic effect.

Kari5

Looking for girls up to random, wacky, and violence run? These are your shows. They both are extremely random, and ignore common sense completely. Fans of one will enjoy the other.

DuskFey

One word: random. It's really impossible to predict where either of these shows is headed, but since you've watched one of them, you're probably ok with that. Excel Saga and Di Gi Charat (and its specials) both feature strong-willed protagonists who don't exactly possess vast intelligence or tactical abilities and rather soft-spoken companions who balance out their crazed leaders. Both series charge headlong into the bizarre, and neither one should be taken too seriously. Fans of one will probably enjoy the other as well.

Galaxy Angel

Galaxy Angel
  • TV (26 eps x 14 min)
  • 2001

Combined, the ever-hungry airheaded Milfeulle, voluptuous Ranpha, cold-as-ice Vanilla, regal Mint and aggressive gun-wielding Forte make up the Galaxy Angels -- an intergalactic team dedicated to finding the elusive Lost Technology! Joined by the once suicidal missile AI (now in the body of a stuffed animal), these girls must complete their mission at all costs! From finding lost pets to helping a pizzeria in debt, to infiltrating outposts full of monkeys, the work of a Galaxy Angel is never complete...

Although Broccoli created both Di Gi Charat and Galaxy Angel, that isn't my reason for recommending these two series. Both rely on sheer randomness to amuse and entertain you, with cute graphics to boot. Di Gi Charat is undoubtedly the more messed up of the two, but both should make you laugh just the same.
NekoRocket
Di Gi Charat and Galaxy Angel share a tendency for ridiculous and unusual humor with incredibly cute characters. While Galaxy Angel offers a bit more substance, you won't find Di Gi Charat lacking when it comes to comedic punch. Certainly worth a watch if you're looking for an off-the-wall laugh.
cassiesheepgirl

Enjoy random episodic comedy featuring aliens and/or outer space? Then both these series are for you. Both Galaxy Angel and Di Gi Charat have a similar style of comedy and both are also very easy to pick up and watch an episode of when you have some spare time.

DuskFey

The main characters from Di Gi Charat and Galaxy Angel both have a vague quest to complete, but it usually ends up getting pushed aside in favor of obscure tasks. It's impossible to tell where either show is headed, but with personalities that clash, wonderfully bizarre moments, and a dash of sci-fi thrown in for good measure, it's safe to say that wherever they take you, it should be worth the journey.

BushidoPizza

In both series, there is some task to complete, but this task is never really fully seen or done. It always gets replaced by another, much smaller (and funnier) ask. Both feature a cute cast with generally the same humor that occurs. At the same time, they even share an outer space/alien theme!

If you liked one, you will like the other!

FLCL

FLCL

Naota Nanbada is a boring young boy who leads a boring life in a boring town. His older brother has left for America, and the closest he comes to any excitement is when his deadbeat dad has too much sake. But things change one day when a bizarre girl zooms up to him on a scooter and smacks him in the face with her guitar. What's more, once Naoto returns home he discovers that this strange woman has arrived ahead of him and moved in! Not only does she constantly engage in perverted activities with Naota's father and flirt with the young man himself, but she also claims to be an alien who is searching for the ‘Pirate King.' Now, Naota must learn to live with this new intruder, deal with an odd government agent who sports exceptionally large eyebrows and the mysterious Medical Mechanica, and come to terms with the fact that there are a variety of robots and weapons emerging out of his head - amongst other things. Perhaps boring wasn't so bad after all...

FLCL is just completely strange and weird, which makes it incredibly funny. I can watch it over and over again, just like DiGi Charat. It's genuinely great humor.
Nanashi
If you are fan of Di Gi Charat's frentic absurdity, Furi Kuri's brand of insanity might be up your alley. Both series use the element of controlled chaos to give birth to an experience that is both highly enjoyable and confusing. Both series will leave you wondering just what it was that you just watched.
caitlin

Both anime contain a certain quirky, strange sort of random humour, as well as good animation. Di Gi Charat, however, gives it to you in smaller doses at a time, so it is, in my opinion, a bit more bearable. But if you enjoyed the strange humour of one, you are likely to enjoy the other.

cassiesheepgirl

If you enjoyed either FLCL or Di Gi Charat then you may want to check out the other. Both series often leave with a sense of WTF? when watching them. If you liked the random comedy of one, you are likely to enjoy the other.

More story and plot with Guu, but only because it's a full 20 minutes over 3. Same amount of random comedy as Di Gi Charat but not as high of a 'cuteness' factor.
TheBurningCrow
Guu is just as slapstick as Digi Charat. The parodies and puns are quite the same, as well as the humor in general. Both have strange creatures and lovable characters.
freakzilla
Guu is just as random as Di Gi Charat, both feature new character appearances in strange ways (the way we love it), and both have a fairly high cuteness factor (less with Guu, but Di Gi Charat is shorter).

Di Gi Charat is faster and more random, yet both have a certain cuteness and comedy factor to them which made me remind them of each other a bit.
cassiesheepgirl

With cute protagonists, bizarre situations and plenty of comedy, if you enjoyed Di Gi Charat or Adventures of Mini Goddess, then you may like the other. Both have a similar style of humour and vibrant visuals, so if you liked one, try the other.
