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...
Sawamura Seiji is the most notorious delinquent at his high school -- always getting into fights and causing problems, leaving him single and unlucky with the ladies. After another long day of rejection, Seiji discovers that the love of his life might have finally appeared, but in the unlikeliest of places... his right hand?! Now, in addition to dealing with daily fights and the gossip of his classmates, Seiji must handle a new problem of embarassing proportions: Kasugano Midori, a pretty young girl in place of his hand, who happens to have fallen in love with him!
Both FMP Fumoffu and Midori no Hibi are anime about a guy that can't deal with girls, yet he'll have to manage somehow. Each has plenty of hilarious situations.
I loved the series. The characters meshed together perfectly making for a great romantic comedy. But the best part of the series were the outtakes.
Miki is a psychotic mascot, waitress and delivery girl who works at her equally as frightening mother's ramen shop. Both survivor and instigator of years of ruthless, no-holds-barred domestic violence, Miki has a capacity for destruction usually found only in people with things like "the Impaler" added to their name. Yet, she also has a kind side to her and is often found going implausible distances out of her way to rescue both proverbial and literal lost kittens, though some malignant souls might misconstrue this as merely ditching her work...
Muteki Kanban Musume and Fumoffu are similar in that each uses a very slapstick style of comedy filled with both over-the-top violence and sheer randomness. Fumoffu is a bit more sophisticated, with inklings of romance and characters that have development beyond "violent nutcase", but if you enjoy the style of comedy, either of these series should make for a solid choice.
Full metal panic? Fumoffu and Muteki kanban musume are hilarious. Things just happen and you just start laughing like a maniac. Cute girls and Random violence are the ingredients to a great comedy.
Ouran High is a school for the extremely wealthy or, in Haruhi's case, the extremely talented. But no amount of talent will help when Haruhi accidentally drops an eight million yen vase in a music room. The vase was the property of Ouran High School Host Club, a group of attractive young men who, for a fee, provide their time and affections for their lovesick clientele: the female students. Fascinated by this strange new specimen, a poor and clumsy commoner, they force Haruhi to work for them until the debt is repaid; but they get a lot more than they bargained for...
Although Ouran parodies shoujo anime and Fumoffu is focused more on parodying action films, both series have a similar mix of romantic comedy and parody. Both also have really fun, memorable, enjoyable characters. It should probably be noted for fans of Ouran that Fumoffu's comedy is sometimes raunchier, and fans of Fumoffu should know that Ouran places a greater emphasis on the romance element of the show than Fumoffu ever does, but overall I think fans of one should give the other a chance.
I could just say school antics and leave it at that, but there are some other similarities between the two. Like the male lead seeming to be out of touch with reality half the time, and the female lead desperately trying to talk him down (and failing). And the romance between the protagonists never really develops, despite attempts by the side characters.
Ranma, raised to be a man among men, has a bit of a problem: he is half woman! While training in China he fell into a strange magic spring at Jusenkyo. Now, he is eternally cursed to change into a beautiful woman whenever he is hit by cold water, but that may be the least of his problems; his father has betrothed him to marry! There's never a dull day for Ranma as he attempts to find a cure for his curse, train to become stronger, and grapple with the fact that half of himself may be more feminine than his fiancée!
Both Fumoffu and Ranma are comedy-packed and have action and romance. If you like to see a tough girl beat up her love interest, these are both great choices.
Both of these shows are simply for laughs because there isn't much of an ongoing plot. They also both have a tough girl who gets really annoyed over a male who they can't admit to really liking.
While visiting his hometown, junior high school student Michishio Nagasumi's life was changed forever when he nearly drowned. Though he was saved by a mermaid named San, there’s a catch -- her family is part of a merfolk mafia, and they abide by a strict rule: If a mermaid is discovered by a man, either he or the mermaid must die. That is, unless the man marries into the family! Faced with such a decision, Nagasumi can only oblige their customs and become a "happy" newlywed. Now, with a new school year around the corner, Nagasumi must find a way to deal with his new bride, keep her true nature a secret, and most importantly, escape inevitable death at the hands of San's over-protective father’s gang!
If you enjoyed the light-hearted silliness, over-the-top humour, and laugh-out-loud antics of Fumoffu, then make sure you see Seto no Hanayome. Sure, they have very different themes and settings, but they are hilarious. Both a pleasure to your giggle-buttons.
Top two school life comedies of all time. With a wide variety of whacky characters and the differences between the male and female lead bring about hilarious situations and excellent slapstick comedy. Both are a must watch for any comedy fan!
