Synopsis:

The year is 48650 and in Merkur, humankind is at war with the machine race. High in their regal mansion, the quirky robots Lady Drossel Von Flugel and her servant Gedachtnis spend their time discussing the intricacies of life. From the art of letter writing and human verbal communication to the trials of owning a pet, the two show themselves to be utterly clueless. Then again, who cares when you have a robotic monkey to play with?

Bakemonogatari

Bakemonogatari

Koyomi Araragi is an aloof boy who holds a strange, supernatural secret which inadvertently leads him to others with similar stories. Gods, spirits and afflictions can be pesky things, taking important memories or causing unusual tendencies – a fact that Koyomi and others are unfortunately aware of. Using the help of an eccentric homeless man, Koyomi is able to help new friends he meets along the way with their own paranormal conundrums…

The interaction between the characters reminds me of both titles - TONS of dialogue in both and little to no plot besides it.

These shows both orient around silliness-oriented comedy, with cute CG robots as the main characters. Straight Title is a little more slow-paced, while Fireball (and its sequel, Fireball charming) tends toward fast-paced delivery with brief pauses for facepalming. The styles of humor are somewhat similar, relying heavily on sight gags and puns. If you enjoyed one of them, you owe it to yourself to check out the other.

Both titles involve a quirky set of sentient robots experiencing the misadventures of daily life, though Fireball is the more cerebral (sort of) of the two.

Life is never dull for Nyaruko and Mahiro. Whether it's seeing which is preferred by a pet, to talking about RPGs, or even designing the cover for a body pillow, fun is sure to be had by the duo. And when Cthuko enters the picture, Mahiro has his hands full with teaching her to cook, and even learning about her crush on Nyaruko!

While totally different in plot, both titles feature short, random segments where a few characters engage in a long dialogue and do various slow-paced things.

Both are short episodic comedies involving robots & random humor. I personally liked Fireball and Fireball Charming but didn't really enjoy Kimagure Robot; however, that may be only a matter of my subjective taste. So, check them both.
