What do you do when the Emperor of Japan has been replaced with... an alien from Planet Octopus?! From intense motorcycle races to crazy machine inventors from Holland, from sea voyages to battles about emo trading cards, there's never a dull moment in the life of the bizarre. Join an eclectic cast as they are visited by a Ramen Fairy, are reincarnated over and over, solve cases like detective pros, and overall have a laughably ridiculous time!
Wakame High School has its fair share of weirdos, and transfer student Fumiya "Fuumin" Okometsubu is about to meet the strangest one of all. Planning to make one hundred new friends, the first to step up to the plate is Masaru Hananakajima. Becoming an unwilling student in Masaru's secret martial arts style, the two embark on enrolling more unsuspecting victims to learn the "Sexy Commando" way of fighting. Recruiting Kyasharin, the feeblest strong man in the world; and Kondo, the aspiring manly man; the group embark on a voyage of moronic triviality. From an outrageous sleepover to playing the baseball Game of Honour, the team must finally pull together and remove their pants for the National Sexy Commando Tournament!
Though Gag Manga Biyori and Sexy Commando are both gag-format series, that's not all they share; a simple animation style, explosive character reactions, and ever-fantastic (and random) jokes and situations are other things in common between the two. Even the opening sequences and theme songs are just plain crazy!
The episodes in each are only a few minutes long and thus are fast-paced; this makes the content harder to digest, but not because it's too abstract or boring - rather, you are constantly laughing.
These two are seriously a must-see if you enjoy total randomness.
If stupidity and craziness is your bag, baby, then I highly recommend both of these shows.
If you enjoyed the crude and mindless humour in Sexy Commando, it is mirrored in GMB. The childish animated emotions in Gag Manga are also used to great effect in Sexy Commando.
Manic animation, non-sensical story and bizarre characterisation mean that these shows won't appeal to everyone, but I'm sure fans of one show will lovw the other.
Sexy Comando Gaiden and GMB have the same high octane crazy sense of humor and approach to comedy. The humor in both is imaginative and comes from weird places with exaggerated reactions and short gags born from the mind of the great Akitarou Daichi.
If you enjoy the Japanese style of comedy or have stumbled on one of them, seek out the other. You won't regret it.
One day, Dejiko, Puchiko and the strange ball-shaped Gema-Gema crash land their UFO in the middle of Akihabara. Without a single yen to their name they have nowhere to go, but following an unexpected and generous offer from the manager of a nearby store, the trio begin working at the shop in exchange for renting the room upstairs. Alongside Dejiko’s self-confessed rival Rabi-en-Rose, as well as a mysterious bear that has mastered the ability to appear happy, sad, depressed and angry all at once, the insanity is only just beginning! From shooting window shoppers with Dejiko’s Laser Eye Beam and the appearance of a bizarre farting impostor, to a sudden attack on the city by Godzilla, life at Gamers is certainly livening up.
Though there are a lot of random comedies out there, Gag Manga Biyori and Di Gi Charat are both dry to some extent and are completely bizarre. If you liked the oddness of one, you might try out the other.
Both series have episods that only last five minuts and both have very a random and spastatic scince of humer and both parody ver populer anime series
A lot can happen in a minute. Aliens can begin their invasion of Earth, only to be thwarted at the first step; cats can plot their revenge on their careless owners; and children can frolic in the fields with a giant robot. Ever wondered what the average day in the life of an animator is like? Or can a small pellet-spitting alien distract a young boy while he reads manga, in order to escape from his room? And will the machine that a small boy and his pet built allow him to steal a kiss from a girl? From following a group of young women recovering from heartbreak, to the owner of a music store who views his customers as little more than cash on legs, still “the clock ticks on and on in 60-second cycles.”
Both of these short series are full of random and often bizarre content. While Gag Manga Biyori is more fast paced than the majority of the Ani*Kuri shorts, if you liked one then it's well worth checking out the other.
Holding strictly to his family's creed, Kou Ichinomiya has never once, in his life of privilege, owed anything to anyone – that is, until a self-proclaimed Venusian named Nino saves him from drowning in the wake of a dire accident involving Kou's pants. Eternally indebted to the supposed extraterrestrial, Kou moves into her little community under the bridge along the Arakawa river. Ripped from his life of luxury and success, the young Tokyo U graduate now must adjust to his well-appointed hovel, strange new neighbors, and peculiar lover, Nino.
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!
