The lupine detective Usami-chan is back, and ready for her next cases! Unfortunately, they all involve a perverted bear who steals socks and can’t keep his pants on, but who cares?! Meanwhile, a father-son pair can’t wait for a female tutor to arrive at their humble home, but keep getting tricked night and night again; the offer of a housewarming gift goes terribly wrong when it is discovered to be only rocks and grass; and plenty of other wacky antics abound!
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 series are extremely random and often raise a smile. While Ani*Kuri15 is more varied in it's content and visuals, if you like Gag Manga Biyori 2 and want to watch something short, that's a little bit different from your standard anime series, then it's well woth checking out Ani*Kuri15
At Cromartie High, it’s tough being a delinquent -- a fact that do-gooder Takashi Kamiyama intimately understands. When he’s not engaging in contests of strength and rival gang wars, Kamiyama can also be found submitting punny jokes and planning his own rise to fame within the delinquents’ ranks, and that’s just the beginning! With friends like robotic Mechazawa, a giant gorilla, a hairy man from the 80s named Freddie and a clan of delinquents with mohawks that flow in the wind, how can anyone not enjoy high school?
Cromartie and Gag Manga Biyori are both random comedies with a twist: the humor is completely dry and spastic. Unlike slapstick-type series like Excel Saga, these two will only appeal to a certain audience; so if you liked one of these, odds are you'd like the other as well (though I enjoyed Cromartie far more).
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.
Three hundred years ago, the power-hungry Demon King Giri was sealed away by the legendary Migu Migu tribe. In the present, the seal on Giri has melted, and two unlikely heroes must save the world once more. Twelve year old Kukuri is a bumbling mage who is the last of the Migu Migu tribe, and thirteen year old Nike is a would-be swordsman who has been raised to be a hero; together, the two will wander the land in hopes of defeating Demon King Giri - but they aren't alone! Along with an almost-naked old man, a loincloth-wearing wind spirit and plenty of wacky companions, the duo will help townsfolk, gather Guru Guru spells and have plenty of fun in the process!
Gag Manga Biyori is much, much more random than Mahoujin Guru Guru, but both are wacky and bizarre tales with plenty of creatures and odd characters. MGG has more of a fantasy slant (and has an ongoing plot), while GMB is episodic and partially based in reality. Those who appreciate the randomness in one will appreciate it in the other.
Over millions of years, there have been many ages – war, gods, and future to name a few. Each of these was infinitely less exciting than the current Animation Age! In this RPG-esque existence, becoming stronger is paramount to one's survival and leveling up is a must. From pacifists to news casting, from fishing woes to love advice, there’s nothing the Animation Age can’t show or teach us about life in a game world! Armed with healing spells, changes of clothes and plenty of summoned familiars, the characters of Master of Epic will do what it takes to level up and live to fight another day!
Master of Epic is a spazzy and random look at an RPG world, while Gag Manga Biyori 2 (like the first GMB) is just spazzy and random. Thus, if you liked one, you'd probably like the other. As a note, I know there are a lot of random titles out there, but these two in particular have an exceptionally similar feel. Just try it out!
