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.
Kajiwara Sora is a shy girl who loves to draw. She's a member of the art club at school, even though one of the other members scares her sometimes. She finds drawing things like flowers or fruit easy enough, but she puzzles over how to capture more fleeting moments, like the flapping of a bird's wings or a cat that won't sit still. There are things she can draw, and things she can't draw, and with the help of her friends in the art club, she's going to experience them all to the fullest.
If you enjoyed the focus on art and design in either Sketchbook ~Full Colors~ or GA, then you may want to consider checking the other series out. Both are slice of life, with added comedy, though the humour in GA tends to veer more on the wacky side.
