Sousuke Sagara is far from the average high school student - not only is he highly trained in military tactics, he puts his knowledge to use in every single applicable situation (and even those nonapplicable ones.) So, when confronted with high school, he tends to turn average high school experiences into off-the-wall adventures. Love letters become terrorist threats and field trips become commando operations; his survival depends on the watchful eye of his best friend and classmate, Kaname. Together, they may just make it out of high school alive...

Over the top, that is the characteristic Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu shares with School Rumble. Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu might be more action packed then School Rumble but the things they do in both these shows are just so over the top they leave you shaking your head with a big smile on your face.

Fumoffu's comedy is based off of sheer randomness and a wonderfully common-sense-deficient character, whereas School Rumble bases its comedy on sheer randomness, common-sense-deficient characters, and romantic misunderstandings. So, aside from one extra factor on the part of Rumble, (and Fumoffu does actually have romance, it just isn't used as much for jokes) these are two remarkably similar anime. If you enjoyed the comedy in one, you should find a good bit of it present in the other.


If you want to lighten up your mood and you just want to watch some slightly senseless events happening, both School Rumble and Fumoffu can serve you tons of laughter. Both these series left me teary-eyed from laughing. So if you liked one, I'm sure that you'll going to love and get addicted to the other.


In School Rumble and FMP:F, the main lead has absolutely zero idea about romance. This of course makes a lot of funny things happen which we all enjoy.


What happens when those driven by speed, power and cunning attend high school?

Whether it's the soldier from the battlefield or the famous devil from the streets, both main characters don't fit easily into Japanese school life. But it sure as hell is funny to watch them struggle for love and peace!


They both take an everyday thing, something that we see daily, such as school kids, and elaborate upon their experiences... except they do it in a hilarious way that you would guess is not quite your everyday experience


Just like School Rumble, Full Metal Panic is a romance comedy filled with laughs, awkward embarassing moments, and confused feelings. Both take place at a high school and have a wide range of characters who are all looking for happines and a good time.


Fumoffu and School Rumble are school comedies with similar style of humour. School Rumble stops being funny when it switches into drama mode, but there is no such thing in Fummofu. If you liked one, watch the other one as well.


Both the anime are really funny and there is some kind of romance. I would say if you enjoyed one theres a good chance you'll like the other.


These series both focused on episodic comedy with a little bit of romance in the background. These titles both have a lot of great, random humor floating around, making them a great fit for one another.


Both are hilarious comedy anime revolving around school-life with often over-the-top action and crazy and hilarious situations occuring that leave you laughing at the end.


Both animes are enjoyable and fun to watch. The characters are funny and both animes take place in school. If you liked one you surely gonna the other one :D


WHAT?! Excessive force is not required to protect the girl you like? Apparently nobody told this to Harima or Sousuke as they go to extremes without the tempering of common-sense to protect their romantic interest. The results are often hilarious to the point of tears. Both shows are masterpieces of humor in my book with great casts of characters and funny situations.

Azumanga Daioh

Azumanga Daioh

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!

Slapstick with all of it's charms. The two serie's plot is not that connected through each episode, instead it's a new plot each episode which is all about jokes and humor. If you liked the kind of humor shown in either daioh or fumoffu then you are bound to like the other, even tho' fumoffu sometimes (rarely) have a more serious side.
Fumoffu and Azumanga: shows that are sooo much about nothing, that Jerry Seinfeld has to say, "Man, these shows are about nothing . . . what's the deal with that?" Constantly new, fresh, and over all histerical

Azumanga Daioh is a good combination with any anime, but is an especially good show to watch if you are looking for a lot of nonstop comedy like Fumoffu has.


Azumanga Daioh and FMP? FUMOFFU are so gut-splittingly hilarious they are without any (coherent) explanation, but I shall attempt.

FUMOFFU will have you on the ground rolling in laughter, trying to draw breath into your burning lungs. It's that hilarious. From Sousuke Sagara swearing up a storm while converting a bunch of pansies into a frankly terrifying rugby team, to The Matrix parodies, it's a nonstop test of your ability to keep breathing and see the TV through tears of laughter.

Azumanga Daioh is basically the same. Detachable ponytails, killer cats, and epic shoe-losing make this series a must see. The silly characters will have you giggling madly. Like FUMOFFU, watch with friends for extra laughs. It's always funnier with friends.

Both series, expecially FUMOFFU, get a 10/10 for pure comedy and side-splittingly awesome quotes. Never before have I wanted to get a Bonta-kun suit solely for taking over the world. XD


Both the anime are comedy based, and lack an obvious plot. Fumoffu is a romantic comedy, and an extreme version of Azumanga Daioh. Fumoffu uses extreme cases and romance to make the story come together, while Azumanga Daioh uses only the semi-extreme jokes. If you've laughed at Fumoffu, you'd do the same with Azumanga Daioh, and vise-versa. For each of them, there was at least one moment where I fell out of my seat, laughing.


Well, how to describe them ...? Hmm, I think that the best word that connects to both is "hilarious". Yes, that's exactly it! Both series are so hilarious that you won't be able to sit still in front of the screen. Action is placed mostly in school so you may imagine how many situations may occur, right? If you like good comedies with little action but great episodic plot then here you have it!


Liked the random sort of comedy FMA? Fumoffu or Azumanga Daioh had? You'll love the other one in that case! Granted, in Azumanga you won't be seeing Sousuke get beaten up by Chidori every five minutes, and FMA? Fumoffu isn't about a group of girls being random, but they share the same sense of humour that'll make you laugh out loud multiple times each episode without resorting to incredibly crude jokes.


If you liked the almost episodic comedy in FMP Fumoffu, you'd definitely like the comedy in Azumanga Daioh. They both are hysterically random and have (to a certain extent) similar humor.


Fumoffu takes all the drama of it's series and throws a bit of humor that only shows like Azumanga can provide. School life, crazy classmates, and junior geniuses abound in both of these hilarious animes. 

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?

If you are looking for true randomness and hilarity, look no further. Cromartie and Fumoffu are both quite amusing (though I definitely like Cromartie a bit more). Both break the mold of generic randomness and are very entertaining, and conveniently are both based around school.

Cromartie High School is about a high school filled with badasses who do crazy things; FMP Fumoffu is about a high school with one badass who does very crazy things. Both will make you laugh, often!


Fumoffu and Cromartie High are both anime that are completely random. Fumoffu is random because Sagara is so clueless about things, while Cromartie might be just plain weird to some. On top of that even the setting (high school) is the same!


Just plenty of fun and nonsense for a quick watch you won't regret unless you were also looking for a more thorough and complex show.

Not much mental work, but lots and lots of laugh assured!


Both of these series have pretty madcap comedy styles--Fumoffu! because of poor Sousuke being dropped into a situation he's completely unprepared for, and Cromartie because of the large number of wacky students present at the school. Both series also rely a lot on parody through their comedy. Cromartie focuses mostly on gritty action series or stories about deliquints, while FMP?F!'s parodies borrow from several different sources, but the overall tone is pretty similar. Plus, they're both just hilarious series. Definitely check out these two if you're wanting a comedy series to watch.


FMP Fumoffu and Cro High share many similar elements. Both feature a protagonist who thinks and behaves differently from those around him. Everything is centered around the bizzare events/actions the protagonist and his friends encounter/do at school or at home. However, FMP Fumoffu is more often centered around Souske being too serious while Cro High mostly revolves around about the bizzare the people (or should I say characters) and situations around Kamiyama. Nevertheless, both anime derive its comdey from completely unpredictable randomness that will leave many viewers winded from laughter.

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya

The eccentric Suzumiya Haruhi wants nothing more than to meet aliens, time travelers and espers… but she’ll have to settle for the everyday Kyon instead! Along with the mysterious Itsuki and the vacant Mikuru, the duo forms the SOS Brigade – a club whose mission is to discover the mysteries of the world. Armed with a razor sharp wit and a skill for manipulation, Haruhi will stop at nothing to have fun at all costs, even at the expense of Mikuru’s dignity!

Haruhi and Sagara are both 'abnormal' students. While Haruhi is trying to find aliens, time travelers, and espers, Sagara is checking other students and school property (such as fire alarms) for guns, bugs and grenades. Amidst all of the chaos, Kyon and Chidori are trying to keep it to a minimum, with little success.


An indifferent guy, and an eccentric girl; this is what you see in both Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu, and Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu. The amount of energy contained in these two anime is overwhelming, but results in pure hilarity; it's all fun and games. As an added bonus, you are swept away with excellent soundtracks, and beautiful animation (thanks KyoAni!).


These are both good series for comedy lovers. Both have excellent characters in strange situations doing strange things that make you laugh. Sousuke in Full Metal Panic Fumoffu wearing a big bear costume getting into a gun battle with a police officer on a bicycle is one of the stranger things you could see in anime, and watching two school girls duke it out in what appeared to have been cyberspace ranks right along up there.


Both of these series are centered around people that "don't quite fit in," with a very level headed lead of the other gender (male in Melancholy with Kyon, Chidori with the female lead in FMP? Fumoffu), with a strong sense of humor and completely unexpected things often happening.


Both anime are school comedies and both are quite hilarious. If you liked one of those two you should check the other one.


Sagara and Suzumiya must share the same gene that makes them take school to the extreme. Chidori and Kyon are their no-nonsense partners who try to rein in the rather destructive capabilities.

Kyoto Animation produced both series, and it shows. If you liked one, it's pretty much guarenteed you'll like the other.

Love Hina

Love Hina

Keitaro Urashima is somewhat of a failure. In order to fulfill a promise he made to a girl fifteen years ago, he has tried time and again to get into Tokyo U but has never managed to pass the exam. However, fate smiles upon him and he ends up working for his aunt, managing an all-girls dorm! Living with the feral Kaolla, the timid Shinobu, the sake-loving Mitsune, the blade mistress Motoko and the punch-happy Naru, can Keitaro keep his focus and keep his promise? And will he ever end up meeting that girl from his past?

In Full Metal Panic Fumoffu the humor is completely different, though one thing these 2 do have in common, the guy doesn't understand the girls at all and does a whole bunch of stupidities. Even though it's different, liking only one if nearly impossible.
"Love Hina" and "Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu" contain the same kind of crazy boy girl interaction. With the emphasis on guys who dont understand their female counterparts (and in Full Metal Panic? Fumoffo, general social boundaries), and usually get smacked around because of it. Love Hina is heavier on the romance than Fumoffu, and Fumoffu's situations are a bit more unrealistic, but not by alot, and its always hilarious to see what kinds of trouble Sousuke and Keitaro manage to get themselves into. Both are great fun to watch and if you enjoyed one you'll surely enjoy the other.

If you loved watching poor Sousuke take a beating at the hands of Kaname in Fumoffu, you're going to love Love Hina. In these two series the main characters learn the real meaning of "tough love" as the women in their lives show them the true meaning of pain. Keitaro, like Sousuke, doesn't have the best of luck with girls and while he tries his best to help, accidents tend to happen and usually end up with him getting knocked into the next dimension. But despite all of their mess ups both men are really nice guys who would do anything to help the women in their lives.


Both main characters in FMPF and Love Hina are at the mercy of their female counterparts and both anime have lots of slapstick humor. That is what makes these so funny!


If you like one you have no alternative but like the other one.

In love Hina, Keitaro wants to go to tokyo U because he thinks he promised a girl in childhood that they'll go to Tokyo u together and live happilly ever after. Eventually he ends up as manager of a all girs dorm. And he messes up everytime; ultimately gets a kick/punch from Naru - a girl later he falls in love with. It's also a story of the girls that came in keitaro's life so far. But the ultimate question remains, will Keitaro be able to get into Tokyo U with his poor skills in practise exams??

In Fumoffu, our beloved undercover student Sasuke messes up the class with his wierd military stuffs and finally gets a punch/kick from Kaname - the girl he is in charge of protecting. Sasuke also assists in a yakuza fight in a theme park mascot suit named Bontakun which only says Fumoffu - funny.

Well you get the picture, both are comedy's portraiting a guy who doesn't understand a lot of things and so accidents occur and the girl pours her wrath upon the guy..... simple.
