Koyomi Araragi is an aloof boy who holds a strange, supernatural secret which inadvertently leads him to others with similar stories.

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…
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.
