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...
What do you get when you cross a farmer, a seductress, and a gigolo? The Nerima Daikon Brothers! These two guys and a gal would like nothing more than to sell out arenas and entertain the masses, but a lack of money and fame make this dream impossible. With the help of lecherous producers, a daikon-stealing panda and a crew of backup dancers, the trio must sing their way to the top and build the stadium of their dreams, lest they stay unknown and penniless forever!
These two might seem funny to pair together, but hear me out. Both series rely on quickly paced, crazy humor. They also have plotlines concerning the romances between the characters...usually played for comedy. (Particularly NDB, which doesn't take hardly anything seriously until it starts heading toward the end.) The animation style for both series are bright and bold (although Fumoffu has its darker moments) and they both have some great parodies of other anime and pop culture.
The studious and uptight Chiaki is well-known as the top pianist of his school, and dreams of becoming a world-class conductor like his idol, Viera; but his fear of flying (which makes studying abroad impossible) combined with a recent break-up and dismissal from his piano instructor causes that future to seem both bleak and unlikely. After collapsing outside of his apartment, drunk, Chiaki inadvertently meets a young woman named Nodame who, while quite talented at the piano, is unclean, clumsy, and haphazard. Despite being almost polar opposites, the two begin to grow closer and work, together, to overcome the obstacles in their careers.
In both animes, it is very entertaining watching the characters interact. The characters are very unique from other animes as well, and those looking for a change will defintely enjoy these two.
Everyone around Kousaka seems to adore cats, but due to his allergies the teen can’t stand them. So when he wakes up one day and can hear what every feline is saying, Kousaka is annoyed to say the least. His new “gift,” it seems, is the result of accidentally breaking an enshrined statue of a cat; and what’s worse, Kousaka must atone for his sin and appease the vengeful spirit by aiding one hundred kitties-in-distress, or become a furry feline himself! Now, amidst helping various cats with mundane and trivial issues, Kousaka must try to dispel the jinx and attempt to salvage his self-respect – not to mention his love life - along the way.
One day, the typical Sunao Moriyama found something not-so-typical in his refrigerator: a small creature between the potatoes and mayonnaise that he dubs Potemayo! Sunao decides to take care of Potemayo and takes her with him everywhere he goes, and as a result Potemayo quickly becomes popular with Sunao's classmates. However, the tranquility of the new friendship is broken with the arrival of another creature from Sunao's fridge – this time a scythe-wielding laser-shooting horned creature he dubs Guchuko. Now, every day brings new adventures and surprises with Potemayo and Guchuko around!
Fumoffu and Potemayo are shows that put a unique spin on high school slapstick comedy. Through rediculous happenings and consistently sirprising gags, both are show which keep you on your toes and can be non-stop comedy all the way through. Both shows have a semblance of something deeper within the characters and their relationships, but never go beyond implications, instead focusing as much as possible on the comedy. Potemayo and Fumoffu are both experiences that you will not have in any other anime.
