Chrono Trigger

Chrono Trigger
  • OVA (1 ep x 16 min)
  • 1996

It’s been one thousand years since the Kingdom of Guardia was established, and to celebrate the citizens are holding a festival. Though what most people don’t know is that the night before this celebration marks the Millenial fair for the world’s monsters. After the sun has set, a portal opens and the creatures begin their own celebration, complete with various food stalls and carnival games. Two creepy critters, Nuu and Mamo, are attempting to recruit new team members, but when they prove to be unsuccessful they decide to check out the festivities instead. Whether they’re annoying the live entertainment or taking part in a drinking contest to win a golden shovel, the pair is making the most of the fiesta and plan to kick back and relax – that is until they meet a large, singing robot named Gonzalez…

Chrono Trigger and Dragon Half both indulge in poking gentle fun at fantasy conventions, and go for colourful characters over complex plots. If you're after light entertainment without having to think, both should suffice.
OneiChan

I think if you liked Dragon Half you would find enjoyment in Chrono Trigger as well because even though the plots are very different they share several key elements. These are both light-hearted comedies that you don't have to be serious or thoughtful to watch. They are both short so they are good for a quick laugh. Watch these as a 'pick me up' on a boring day.

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 has a wee bit more meat to it than dragon half and is a bit more demented, but it contains a LOT of the same sort of strange and random humor. Strongly recommend both.
Foop

There are many things that Dragon Half and Furi Kuri have in common, such as the craziness of the stories. If you are the kind of person who likes things that don't make sense, so much to the extent that it becomes funny, then both of these shows would be right for you.

These two are both just nonsensical shows that will do nothing more than make you laugh until your sides burst. Mink and Shinobu are both pretty airheaded and get into some funny situations, so if you like a random show to make you laugh, this is a definite choice.

FireFlower

Dragon Half and 2x2 = Shinobuden both share no-sense humor with a lot out of order scenes. '

Dragon Half's strong point is hilarious characters and moments where common logic doesn't work at all.

Shinobuden strong point is Ninja group's no-sense ninja skills and their female discipline who doesn't question anything. Of course you cannot forget that ball of goo with the greatest voice acting ever.

Puni Puni Poemy

Puni Puni Poemy

Puni Puni Poemi is a spin-off of Excel Saga, the classic lampoon of all that is anime. It takes the daughter of two Excel Saga characters and puts her through parodies of shoujo, shounen, ecchi, hentai, and everything in-between. This eccentric show is the "Scary Movie" of anime: younger viewers need not apply.

Both main characters are a little on the goofy and energetic side, and both series revel in poking holes in the 'standard'--while Dragon Half focuses on Fantasy though, Puni Puni Poemi focuses on anime in general
MCBigman

Both are 2 episode OVA's full of wackiness and poke fun at anime tropes ad nauseum. Watch them together for a wacky time.

Armored Dragon Legend Villgust

Armored Dragon Legend Villgust

Villgust, a once-peaceful world, is now covered under a dark shadow. Monsters have appeared throughout the lands, and the inhabitants live in fear. However, hope is alive in the hands of eight warriors chosen by the goddess Windina! These brave souls, including Fanna the archer and princess-turned-warrior Chris, will do whatever it takes to save the world from evil. Their first challenge lies with Gavady, the leader of the monsters in a nearby forest. Armed with fierce weapons, can our noble (and somewhat strange) heroes save Villgust?

Dragon Half, like Villgust, is filled to the brim with random comedy and jokes that poke fun at RPGs and fantasy stories. The mood and feel is incredibly similar; if you liked one, you'd like the other.
