Synopsis:

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!

In this new strange land, Punie is a cute girl who is very easy to get along with; but when she is upset, she uses her magical staff to take care of business! And when magic isn’t an option, Punie uses wrestling moves known as “Submission” to take down her enemy like a true queen. Together with her mascot Paya-tan, Punie will make new friends and take down new foes with style!

Both anime are hyper and violent to the extent that they become totally funny. Both take on a lot of cliche's in anime as well. I highly suggest you check one out if you liked the other.

Ebichu

Ebichu

$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!

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.

Eiken

Eiken

When Mifune fell hands first into Chiharu's bulbous, bulging bosoms one day, he had no idea his life would change forever. For the girl is a member of Eiken, a school club filled with busty beauties such as banana-loving Kirika and the exceptionally top-heavy child Komoe, and they've decided to recruit the boy as one of their own! With perverted situations at every turn, Mifune finds himself in frequent compromising positions, whether the group is participating in swimsuit bungee jumping, riding a yogurt slide in pairs or even seductively eating phallic food.

Both equal in sexual debauchery and parody, Excel Saga and Eiken are perfect for each other. Not for the feint of heart. Not for kids either.

Elf Princess Rane

Elf Princess Rane

Go Takarada would like to believe he's the next Indiana Jones, but how much treasure can he find in his own hometown? Not to be daunted by such trivialities, he continues in his pursuit to find treasure and be famous. His luck turns up when the mystical elf princess Rane appears before him. Together, they seek magic stones and mayhem, despite their inability to communicate. This comedic adventure keeps you laughing right up past the credits.

Overall insanity are the trademarks of these off-beat anime. While Excel Saga takes it to a racier extreme, Elf Princess Rane relies on the fact that it makes no sense to make you laugh. Greatly amusing, whatever the occasion, be sure to check these out.

Great Teacher Onizuka

Great Teacher Onizuka

With a history of leading a motorcycle gang and getting bad grades in school, why would 22 year old Onizuka ever want to become a teacher? Is it to educate young minds or spread the joy of education? Sure, if it involves being able to look up high school girls' skirts! Watch as this would-be educator uses his own life lessons and unconstituted methods as a means to control a delinquent class of students -- students who certainly aren't as happy to have him as a teacher as he is happy to be teaching...

Deffinately on the slap-stick side. GTO is very exaggerated, very much like Excel Saga, but with an ongoing plot.
