Nobita is dumb, lazy, and slow, and as a result of his lack of motivation, any future generations in his bloodline are cursed with poverty! Therefore, to help him in his path to succeed, his great-great-great-great grandson visits him from the 22nd century to give him a gift: a blue mechanical cat named Doraemon who has a 4th-Dimensional pocket full of strange gadgets. Unfortunately, Doraemon's talents are inevitably misused for such things as peeping, practical jokes, and general tomfoolery. Can Nobita save his successors, or is he doomed to stay a loser forever?

Not only are both from the same mangaka, they have similar character designs, tone, and overall appeal to the exact same audiences.


  • TV (13 eps x 4 min)
  • 2004

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.

Both of these series launch off with someone arriving from another kingdom to help out the main character. They are extremely alike in form (individual episodes), both very creative, and both will keep you laughing your head off. I would definitely recommend that if one series is seen, the other one is at least tried.

Looking past the era and samurai aspect, VS and Vagabond follow the story of a man.  Vague, I know.  Each tell the story of a rabid boy as he embarks on a path to adulthood.  Both Thorfinn and Musashi started out as young killers.  As events unfold and time passes, our young protagonists grow up and find a certain peace within.  From there, Musashi becomes a renown warrior and Throfinn, well, we don't know yet.  The mood feels the same and the stories feel the same; a journey of a boy who has been through hell as he becomes a man.  If you like one, the other will be just as good.

Samurai Pizza Cats

Samurai Pizza Cats

In the village of Little Tokyo, Speedy Serviche, Poly Esther and Guido Anchovy run a pizza delivery service; but little do the townsfolk know that when danger lurks, the Samurai Pizza Cats spring into action to take down evildoers where they stand! Seymour “Big” Cheese and his right hand birds Jerry Atric and Bad Bird are on a mission to take over Little Tokyo, and it’s up to the Samurai Pizza Cats to stop them. Pizza, robots, and lots of missiles abound in the fight against ongoing evil! Do the feline crusaders have what it takes to protect their town and sling delicious pies?

Doreamon and Samurai Pizza Cats share the same feeling that you find in old anime. The innocent plots, simple humor and constant doses of fun make these series a good recommendation for each other.
