$10 can not only buy you a cute hamster; it also get you a devoted housekeeper who will cook, clean, put on suntan lotion, and cheer you on when your relationships get stale! Does it seem like a dream? Then picture what life would be like if anybody who calls your house gets to know the contents of your underwear drawer! If you can’t imagine what rodents and ecchi have to do with each other, then enter the life of the hamster Ebichu, her sexy master, and the good-for-nothing boyfriend Kaishounachi, and see why a talking hamster can be such a bother!
Having recently dropped out of law school, where he had finished the graduation requirements but didn't actually graduate, Kintaro Oe is on a new self-driven quest for knowledge. His adventures will lead him to a variety of workplaces including a computer firm, noodle shop, and even an animation studio, where his seemingly perverse attitude always tends to get him into trouble with the opposite sex. The moral of the story? Study! Study! Study!
The perverse humor and visuals in Golden Boy are quite similar to that of Ebichu, yet not as hard core. These two anime are also outstandingly hilarious. If you liked one, you should also like the other.
Ebichu and Golden Boy are both rather pointless anime where any hint of plot is an excuse to give some fanservice. If pantyshots are what you like, pantyshots are what you will get.
Both Golden Boy and Ebichu deal with perversion and "adult situations" in ways that show us sometimes the people involved aren't so "adult" ;) Both are humorous, witty, and hilarious.
Perversion, fan service and side splitting laughs. You will get all of these in abundance from both shows.
Neither are suitable for younger viewers, but are definitely something that should not be missed by someone with a perverted mind.
Both feature the successes and failures (mostly the failures) of a sexual relationship and how outside factors affect this.
Both hilariously funny and better suited to older audiences. Golden Boy has more of a plot, but Ebichu is perfect lightweight laughter material.
Dirty, hilarious, and oh-so-very wrong... these two are a clear and easy recommendation for each other. If you liked trying to decide whether to laugh or cringe during one of these shows then you will enjoy the same with the other series.
Negishi Souichi always dreamed of joining a trendy pop band, so that he could perform music like that of his idol, Kahimi Karie. In order to realize his dream, he decided to leave the country side and his loving parents to study in Tokyo. And after graduating, he does manage to join a band... but not the kind he was expecting! As lead singer of the death metal band Detroit Metal City, under the stage name Krauser II, he is made to perform loud songs filled with obscene lyrics - a far cry from the songs he used to write in school. But despite the fact that Negishi hates DMC's music, the Krauser side of him will do anything to put on a good show for his fans... even if it means making Negishi's life a misery!
The low-brow humor in both anime is very similar. Both are rife with poop jokes, sex jokes, and cartoon violence. Oddly sincere romance pops up in both series as well.
What do a Hamster and a Death Metal Band have in common? It may sound like the beginning of a joke but Ebichu and Detroit Metal City, do have something in common - humour. Both of these series contain a fair amount of crude, lewd humour, and though Ebichu may be more centralised around this sort of comedy, Detroit Metal City doesn't skimp on it. Both series have that sort of, naughty giggle factor about them, where you find yourself laughing at something that you'd never admit to enjoying in polite company. They are also fairly no-holes-barred, and often you'll be watching and thinking 'what the... did they really just do that?!' I would say that if you enjoyed the naughty laugh factor of one, you should try the other.
While the story and the genres of these shows are very different (except comedy of course) they sharea similar kind of stupid humor and both have short and concise episodes without being too serious.
Ebichu and DMC share that same SILLY ROTFLMAO humor. DMC is more like Dethklok in black metal japan where as ebichu is about the pet of a local office lady (heh).
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.
If you are looking into comedy anime with no other purpose besides making you laugh, then both Ebichu and Guu might be what you're looking for.
Guu is obviously a bigger production then Ebichu, much longer and with better animation. Even so, they both manage to fill their nonsense laughing purpose wonderfully and are very well made.
Besides sharing huge amounts of nonsense humor, they also share super cute character designs.
I can't stress enough: if you're into this kind of comedy and enjoyed one of these, then give a shot at the other. You're probably going to enjoy it.
On one hand we have a perverted house cleaning hamster, on the other, a strange girl who can eat anything that comes into her path.... Both very strange, both make very little sense, but both will have you splitting your sides with laughter.
I have Ebichu and Guu on my top 10 list for a reason. Not for spectacular animation, not for a gripping storyline, but because they have exactly my kind of off-beat humour. If you are looking for a more lighthearted show, and enjoyed one of these, I'm pretty sure you'll like the other.
When there's something strange in your neighborhood, who ya gonna call? No, not the Ghostbusters. Call on Panty & Stocking, the two fallen angels Heaven-sent to clear the surface world of Ghosts – creatures spawned from mortals who met gruesome deaths. At least, that's what they'd like you to think. In reality, they're gun-toting, sword-wielding femmes fatales who lay waste not only to the evil of Daten City, but to all its bachelors and candy treats too. With a healthy dollop of collateral damage and full-frontal nudity, they always manage to save the day. If they can be bothered, that is...
Both series are very funny, have explicit content and both are from the same Studio.
And both series have a drawing that may seem childish, but appearances are deceptive.
These series both share a very depraved and perverted sense of humour, so if sex jokes and toilet humour are your style then you'll find something to love, and laugh at until your face hurts, in either show! The shows also have a more western-influenced art style that makes them stand out visually from a lot of other anime.
Both share a very crude humor (though Ebichu is based solely in sex jokes while Panty and Stocking also adds toilet humor into the mix) and have an artstyle that makes it look innocent at first glance.
If you liked one you'd enjoy the other too.
At Ina Middle School, the boys’ Ping Pong Club is seen as more of a joking matter than something worth the school's budget. It doesn't help that they are constantly being outdone by the girls' team and their fiery-tempered coach, as well the fact that most of the boys on the team care more about their ding dongs than their ping pongs! In a desperate attempt to motivate the team, the boys' coach introduces a hot-bodied female manager, who might just bring a sexual tension to the team that could work to their advantage. But can these hopeless boys improve their game enough to emerge victorious at the upcoming tournament and win the prize she's willing to give?
These are two of my very favorite comedy anime, because they are two of the downright funniest. Both shows are highly demented, perverse, and perverted. You could say that these shows fall somewhere in between ecchi and hentai, super ecchi maybe. Both of these shows also sacrifice plot development for the purpose of cramming in as many crude laughs as possible. If you're just looking for a laugh, and you're not prudish about sexual humor, toilet humor, or the occasional random crudely drawn nudity then this show is for you.
These shows, Ebichu in particular, are also very... um, educational, to a student of Japanese. Though both shows have their fair share of puns. You can learn a few words that you won't find in your average English to Japanese dictionary if you know what I mank... oops, what I mean. ;)
