F City, F Prefecture: the battleground where good and evil have finally chosen to decide once and for all who will rule the world…or at least that's the general idea! Neither side seems up for the task, as surviving the brutality of everyday life is enough of a chore. On the side of evil is the organization of Across, its only member the loudmouthed and abrasive Excel who struggles just to put food in her stomach; on the side of good, three disenfranchised, unemployed bachelors whose only pursuit in life is romance. Add in alien invasions, jungle warfare, and Mexican immigrant laborers to Japan, and this war doesn't seem likely to be ending soon!
Ebichu and Excel Saga are different series. Quite different, to be honest, both in style and general design. Excel Saga is far bigger, more nonsense and ambitious, with the decent animation and the merciless parody machine-gun plot, while Ebichu is obviously an assumed low budget series, consisting of short episodes with extremely shabby but cute animation, with lots of sexual jokes. Even so, both of them share two important characteristics: the fact that they exist for laughing purposes and nothing more (yes, there is anime WITHOUT any sort of dramatic background) and, taking the leading role, the unique Mitsuishi Kotono! You've heard her as Sailor Moon, you've her her as Evangelion's Misato, Utena's Juri and many more and you can also hear her playing both Excel and Ebichu. And believe me, she really marks both series. Her hysteric pitches are SO characteristic that the voices become quite similar, and they take a big part in both series which, I think I have already refered, are both for laughs only, with lots of irreverent humor and showers and showers of nonsense and silliness.
Fans of one of these series are probably going to enjoy the other.
Ten-year-old genius Chiyo, animal-loving Sakaki, loudmouth Tomo, athletic Kagura, weight-conscious Yomi and dim-witted Osaka are six friends who share laughs, good times, and a high school homeroom. With scary (and sometimes perverted) teachers, school festivals, penguin suits and general hilarity abounding, you can be sure that there's never a dull day in the life of one of these students!
While Ebichu is REALLY ecchi Azumanga Daioh isn't. They DO have in common that neither really has any plot and it's all really quite random while managing to be insanely funny. Both made me laugh so hard I almost felt I was going to burst a rib or two, not all that many anime can do that.
One day, the typical Sunao Moriyama found something not-so-typical in his refrigerator: a small creature between the potatoes and mayonnaise that he dubs Potemayo! Sunao decides to take care of Potemayo and takes her with him everywhere he goes, and as a result Potemayo quickly becomes popular with Sunao's classmates. However, the tranquility of the new friendship is broken with the arrival of another creature from Sunao's fridge – this time a scythe-wielding laser-shooting horned creature he dubs Guchuko. Now, every day brings new adventures and surprises with Potemayo and Guchuko around!
I love shows like this, that would probably deter most people because of the childish premise and animation style.
What hides beneath this deceptive shell are two of my favourite comedy shows. The humour is most definitely adult, and a lot of younger viewers will not appreciate it (and should probably not be allowed to watch Ebichu)
Ebichu is purely comedic, whilst there is much more depth to Potemayo. However, if you appreciate one, I'm sure it will work the other way around.
Tenth grader Eisaku Yazawa dreams of being a badass gang leader, but unfortunately for him he's also short and cowardly, bluffing his way out of any difficult situation.

Aizawa is NOT one to just talk, he acts; and now he has just one thing in mind... making sure Yazawa ends up in a box!
