Synopsis:

Naota Nanbada is a boring young boy who leads a boring life in a boring town. His older brother has left for America, and the closest he comes to any excitement is when his deadbeat dad has too much sake. But things change one day when a bizarre girl zooms up to him on a scooter and smacks him in the face with her guitar. What's more, once Naoto returns home he discovers that this strange woman has arrived ahead of him and moved in! Not only does she constantly engage in perverted activities with Naota's father and flirt with the young man himself, but she also claims to be an alien who is searching for the ‘Pirate King.' Now, Naota must learn to live with this new intruder, deal with an odd government agent who sports exceptionally large eyebrows and the mysterious Medical Mechanica, and come to terms with the fact that there are a variety of robots and weapons emerging out of his head - amongst other things. Perhaps boring wasn't so bad after all...

Wow, where do I start? Maimimi and Nanami have similar designs. Both have great music. Maimimi is loud and to the point where Nanami is quiet, but to the point. Both do some-what dumb things, but turn around and say highly intellectual and inspiring phrases without even knowing it.

Chrono Trigger

Chrono Trigger
  • OVA (1 ep x 16 min)
  • 1996

It’s been one thousand years since the Kingdom of Guardia was established, and to celebrate the citizens are holding a festival. Though what most people don’t know is that the night before this celebration marks the Millenial fair for the world’s monsters. After the sun has set, a portal opens and the creatures begin their own celebration, complete with various food stalls and carnival games. Two creepy critters, Nuu and Mamo, are attempting to recruit new team members, but when they prove to be unsuccessful they decide to check out the festivities instead. Whether they’re annoying the live entertainment or taking part in a drinking contest to win a golden shovel, the pair is making the most of the fiesta and plan to kick back and relax – that is until they meet a large, singing robot named Gonzalez…

Chrono Trigger and Furi Kuri are crazily funny. One involves crazy girls on vespas and one involves crazy video game characters making mischief. Since they are both short, you can watch them very easily. If you liked one of them, watch the other.

Cromartie High School

Cromartie High School

At Cromartie High, it’s tough being a delinquent -- a fact that do-gooder Takashi Kamiyama intimately understands. When he’s not engaging in contests of strength and rival gang wars, Kamiyama can also be found submitting punny jokes and planning his own rise to fame within the delinquents’ ranks, and that’s just the beginning! With friends like robotic Mechazawa, a giant gorilla, a hairy man from the 80s named Freddie and a clan of delinquents with mohawks that flow in the wind, how can anyone not enjoy high school?

There are a lot of different reasons to like FLCL, as it's not just a comedy. Cromartie High School, on the other hand, barely even has a plot. However, if you loved the comedy in FLCL and want to see more of it, Cromartie High School is a great bet.

Like FLCL, it features a robot as one of the characters (only he doesn't know he's a robot), and one of the episodes even features aliens. Cromartie never experiments in the same way that FLCL does, but it does play around with its animation for humor's sake, and a lot of its pacing is similar to FLCL's - breakneck and absolutely insane. If you want a comedy with a similar feel to FLCL, definitely give Cromartie a try!

Daicon III and IV

Daicon III and IV

A little girl witnesses a plane land, and is given a glass of water which she must fight to protect. Against mecha, green lizards and even the spaceship Enterprise, the girl struggles to get the water to a daikon radish… which turns into a giant spaceship! After she is all grown up, the girl continues to battle stormtroopers and a variety of other science fiction characters, with the help of a light saber sword!

At one point in FLCL, the female protagonist flies through the air in a bunny suit, shouting 'Daicon V!' This is just one of the many references in that anime, in this case, referring to the Daicon III and IV shorts - done by the people who would later found Gainax, the studio which produced FLCL. Both of these animes feature ridiculous, hilarious action sequences, popular music, and are laden with pop culture references - Daicon moreso than FLCL, where our busty heroine battles off mechas, monsters and Darth Vader. These works are equal doses of beautiful insanity. If you enjoyed one, you definitely should watch 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.
