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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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...
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.
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.
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...
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.
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.
Haré and his mother live peacefully in the jungle, until one day the boy is overtaken by a omnipotent shadow. Later, he awakens to find Guu, a strange girl with even stranger abilities - notably, the ability to switch from a cute, lovable Guu, to a menacing delinquent who eats everything. Now Haré must live with Guu, and lead a normal life, despite her oddities.
Whenever Keiichi is away, it's time for Belldandy, Skuld, and Urd to play. Follow the Adventures of the Goddesses as they shrink down and have fun with their Rat sidekick, Gan-chan. Be it battling Gan-zilla or kitchen appliance romance, the Mini-Goddesses are there to have a good time.
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.
