Kazuhito Harumi is a bookworm to the extreme. He’d rather be reading than doing any other activity, cherishes his bookstore punch cards and above all else, loves reading the work of his favorite author, Shinobu Akiyama. But Kazuhito’s life changes forever when he’s killed in a cafe robbery and reincarnates as... a dachshund puppy?! Luckily for the canine, he’s adopted from the pet store by none other than Shinobu - real name Kirihime - herself, and what’s more, she can read his mind! Unfortunately, she’s also sadistic, loves her sharp pair of scissors, and gets inspired by investigating crimes and the macabre. Kazuhito must now learn to love his furry new body while dodging Kirihime’s attacks and trying to find new reading material!
When Demon King Satan was facing his demise at the hands of Hero Emilia, he had no choice but to quickly flee to another world with his Demon General, Alsiel. However, upon their arrival, the twosome is taken aback with the realization they have lost almost all of their magic - and moreover, were transformed into ordinary humans and are stranded in an otherworldly place called Japan! To survive, the Demon King must now work a part-time job at a fast-food joint and attempt to adapt to modern society the best the pair can as Japanese citizens, all while scheming to rule over the country in the process. But with Hero Emilia and others on Satan’s tail to slay him for good, will Japan ever become his new domain?
These two anime seem to be serious at first, but quickly turns into a comedy that only Japan can bring. Both have a male lead thrown into a weird situation, both have a somewhat sadistic/tsundere main female, and both have doses of DAFUQ? thrown in for good measure. The storylines might be a bit different, but if you're looking for anime that doesn't take itself too seriously, I'd say give one or the other a try.
Rumors tell of a Stony Cat statue that grants a special wish: it will take one of your disliked personality traits and give it to someone in need. Two students arrive at the Stony Cat eager to make a change – Youto, an unabashed pervert, wishes to remove his façade and be able to speak his true feelings, while Tsukiko desires to hide her expressions and be more like an adult. However, little did the pair know that their prayers would be answered in unexpected ways – Youto begins to speak the full, embarrassing truth with brutal honesty, and Tsukiko becomes visually stoic, unable to smile, laugh or cry! To make matters worse, Youto soon runs afoul of the beautiful school idol Azusa, the girl who inherited his unwanted façade. Together, the three slowly become friends while Youto and Tsukiko try to regain what they've lost.
Both feature a male lead that is thrown into a very unusual circumstance that have been influenced by some magical outside force. Henneko may be a bit more... serious (as serious as comedy can get anyway), but it still gives the viewer laughs here and there. Henneko also has healthy doses of "what the heck happened" that is so prominent in Dog & Scissors. If you loved the weirdness (and lack of concrete plot, for that matter) of this anime, I suggest giving Henneko a try.
