Twenty year-old Mikiko Oguro (known as Kuromi to her co-workers) has just entered the dream job of a lifetime -- animation! However, upon her arrival to the famed Studio Petit, Kuromi is in for a surprise: her predecessor just quit, leaving her with the project, and the seemingly unattainable deadline! Now, with only a week left until the key animation is due, Kuromi must wrangle up the group of slackers who must finish Time's Journey 2 before it's too late!
Doujin Work and Animation Runner Kuromi definitely have the same premise and feel. You will definitely like one if you enjoyed the other. The art style in both contains bright, attractive colours, and the characters are very energetic. In Animation Runner Kuromi and Doujin Work, you'll learn a lot about anime/manga culture, the pressures, and get a "behind the scenes" look - you'll also laugh loads because both titles have a quirky comedy style.
Animation Runner Kuromi and Doujin Work are both comedies that give you an inside look into how doujin and anime gets made.
Neither is high quality, but both are worth a look if you're looking for a quick laugh.
Though Kuromi focuses on animation and (surprise surprise) Doujin Work on doujinshi, both look at aspects of otaku culture. Both anime also have a similar visual style and a good dose of comedy. If you liked one, it's worth watching the other.
Both are relatively short, but hilariously funny, anime about the manga/anime business, with both having a female character in the lead. Plus they both give insight into our (i.e., the viewer's) interests.
Both anime have similar visuals and comedy styles. If you liked one, you'd surely like the other.
Moritaka Mashiro feels as if life is passing him by; with no dreams or motivation, he trudges through day-to-day life. One day, after leaving his notebook behind, he returns to school and finds the smartest guy in class, Takagi, waiting for him. Takagi is happy to return the book, but on the condition that Mashiro agrees to become a mangaka with him. Though Mashiro initially declines, he soon reconsiders when he discovers that the girl he likes, Azuki, dreams of becoming a voice actress. And after promising that she can have the lead role if their manga is ever adapted into an anime, he suggests that they get married once they are both successful! Shockingly, she agrees to the proposal and Mashiro and Takagi embark on their quest to become manga artists.
While both are about the production of manga, one being professional and one being fan made, both are serious takes at following your dreams (sometimes ill concieved, scatterbrained dreams); dreams about fame, love and making money through the love of visual arts.
Higly recommended for everyone who has a dream.
Both shows are about people who are striving to make it big in the manga world. Bakuman does it for the love of manga where doujin work wishes to make lots of money from it. Either way their journey is going to be hard without help from friends who are already in the world of making manga themselves. Both are pretty funny and have great characters. If you ever had the drive to succeed in something check either of these titles out. They are sure to please.
These series each start out with characters getting roped into drawing/writing mangas and then goes from there. With a mix of humor and hard work in each of them, the main character(s) go from just messing around with making manga to becoming very serious about it. Although Bakuman is focused more on the professional aspect of making manga and Doujin work is mostly just at the doujin level, if you like watching about the process of making manga, these fit well together.
Ever wanted to join an anime club but felt its geekiness would hurt your reputation? Sasahara feels your pain. Genshiken, the Society for the Study of Modern Visual Culture, is an organization of college otaku obsessed with anime, manga and video games. Their daily activities include holding impromptu cosplay photo shoots, braving the crowds and avoiding injury at doujinshi conventions, and tolerating harassment by Saki, a girl irked by her boyfriend's otaku-ness! It's a perfect match for Sasahara's interests, so why is it so difficult for him to join?
Doujin Work is comedy-based while Genshiken is slice of life-based. They both center around a group of otaku and have many shared themes and situations.
If you like anime centred around otaku culture then both of these series are for you. While Doujin Work focuses more on creating doujinshi and Genshiken on those who read it, both are fairly comedic and worth a look.
These are both great otaku based comedy anime. Both involve doujinshi fandom, and have a similar feel to them.
Genshiken has won its own sales booth at the upcoming ComiFes, and so for the first time they will be participating as a seller instead of navigating through the convention crowds. The club, now with a couple of new members and Sasahara as the chairman, combines the talents of its various members and begins working on its debut doujinshi release. With members having various personal matters to take care of and the deadline rapidly approaching, will they be able to complete it in time?
Doujin Work and Genshiken 2 both focus on the process of making Doujin, the reasons behind it, and the selling aspects. They also show the "hardships" that doujinshi go through to finish their art, although the anime tend to show more funny situations than hardships.
Doujin is nowhere near as good as Genshiken. But both follows the struggles of making and selling doujinshi at ComiFes.
Though a typical salaryman, Yoshitani's days couldn't be livelier. Whether he's dealing with an invasive Kleenex box, reading hentai manga at a café, getting lectured on his poor fashion, trying to avoid high school girls or even doing laundry, Yoshitani attempts to navigate the workplace and life with vigor!
Two funny slice of life shows about the life of an otaku. Doujin Work and Otaryman share the same audience, humor, and themes. If you enjoyed one of these otaku shows you will likely find the other just as appealing.
