The students of the Geijutsuka Art Design Class study all the various fields of art, from sketching and painting to graphic design and photography. While the mischievous Noda is always thinking up new ways to have fun with her partner in crime - tomboy Tomokane - the ditzy Kisaragi is content with doodling cats in her sketchbook. With Namiko attempting (and failing) to keep the energetic duo in line, the quiet and mysterious Kyoujyu seems happy to observe the odd behavior of her classmates. Whether they are transforming a congealed lump of paint into a sculpture of a pudding, playing ‘color tag’, or making thought collages, the gang live their life to the max through both their friendships and their art.
In present day Japan, the life of a school girl is never dull. The easily-bored Konata never finds time to study because of her otaku habits, which frustrates hard-working Kagami to no end. On the other hand, laid-back Tsukasa always manages to go with the flow, while Miyuki is concerned with keeping her status as resident know-it-all. Join these four girls as they muse and meander their way through everyday events such as eating chocolate cones, doing homework, gaming, and trips to the beach galore.
Both Lucky Star and GA, have a very cutesy sort of feel to them. Add to that the comedy and that both series are about very little indeed, then If you liked one of these series, it might be worth your while checking out the other.
Both of these are very random slice of life anime with an almost all female cast. Each episode usually jumps between several small stories randomly thrown together.
GA and Lucky Star are both light and randomly funny Slice of Life shows. Both have their own way of bringing the comedy (GA through art, Lucky Star through parodies), but are in the end about the same thing: a group of girls having fun in their everyday school life. I'd advice neither show for marathoning, but they're excellent for your everyday dose of Slice of Life comedy.
Both shows are about kids doing what kids do best in school. Goofing off and trying to make the best of school life with weird and wacky characters. GA takes a look at an art school childs learning experiences where Lucky Star there doesn't seem to be one single thing they focus on but making the viewer laugh. If you liked one check out the other.
GA and Lucky Star have identical pacing. They'll start off talking about one thing, then switch somehow, again and again, until you have no idea how the current subject came up. It's pretty entertaining, actually. Both also have more characters than most slice-of-life series (which generally have exactly four schoolgirls), and jump around between different groups of people.
They are also more focused in terms of subject matter than most slice-of-lifes. They don't just follow around some people, regardless of what they're doing. GA is all about art, while the jokes in Lucky Star are focused mainly on general geekery.
Yuno is a high school student who dreams of becoming a famous artist; and after being admitted at Yamabuki High School of Arts, she is one step closer to her dream. Yuno must move to an apartment complex near the school, and there, in Hidamari-so, she meets three new friends: Miyako, a very active person who will do anything to get her hands on something to eat; Hiro, an upperclassman who is obsessed with weight gain; and Sae, the oldest of the bunch and also a tomboy. From wild cosplaying teachers to bizarre school myths, Yuno and friends enjoy fun times and crazy days at Yamabuki High!
Like slice of life? Like comedy? Then both GA and Hidamari Sketch are for you. Though GA is more Wacky, and Hidamari more relaxed, if you enjoyed one, it may well be worth checking out the other.
A group of girls enter a school for art. Both these shows have it. Quirky and odd characters and a few giggles here and there. If you liked one slice of school life anime you should like the other.
Both of these series involve a group of girls attending an art school and the eccentricity of their daily lives. They both have a quick pace and switches the story to other characters from time to time so you won't get bored. If you watched one and loved it, then the other should entertain you just as much!
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!
Azumanga Daioh and GA utilize their 4koma roots to their fullest. Each episode skips back and forth to follow the wacky (and mostly unrelated) events of several girls' day-to-day lives at school. A new joke (and the resulting laughter) is never far away.
Both series are about the lives of a group of average teenage girls, following all the random stuff that they do from a day to day basis. Cute, shy girl? Check. Obnoxiously loud tomboy? Check. Sane, mature girl? Dark, mysterious girl? And the occasional weird teacher? Check, check and check. Don't expect any seriousness from either of these shows, and love them because of it. A plus for GA is that you get to learn something about art. And well, Azumanga Daioh is just plain funny. They have quite a similar feel to them and if you liked one, don't be afraid to check out the other.
Kururu, Chiriri, Sarara, and Hororo are four faries who aspire to become human. To do this, they leave the fairy world to study for a year in our world. Aided by their friends Sensei-san and Tama, they have fun learning about topics ranging from school graduation ceremonies and sports festivals to romance and caring for flowers. But as the end of the year of study approaches, will they have learned enough to realize their dreams?
Tsuchida has just started working at the Hanamaru Kindergaten, and, as the first and only male teacher at the school, he’s particularly nervous. Unfortunately his first day doesn’t go quite as smoothly as planned as not only does Tsuchida turn up late, but then a small girl named Anzu claims that he hit on her in front of all the parents! Though he manages to initially clear up the misunderstanding, at the beginning of his second day, Anzu proclaims that she will be his bride and that her mother, Tsuchida’s senior in high school, is supporting them all the way! Now as Tsuchida attempts to become the best teacher he can be, he must also try and quell the rumors that he is dating Anzu, and maybe win the heart of the beautiful and kind, yet ultimately clueless, Yamamoto-sensei…
There are a lot of slice-of-life/comedy shows out there, but I find Hamamaru Kindergarden and GA: Art Design Class to be rather good matches for each other. They have a similar energy, sense of humor, and way of characterizing their casts.
