Guu and crew are back! This time Haré has to survive in a whole new jungle: school in the city! After Haré's mom drags him back to visit his grandmother again, his scheme to talk her into heading back to the jungle lands him in school instead. He hates it, of course, and would much rather be back in the village school. That is, until he meets Rita -- blond, cute and an absolute angel! Well, nearly absolute. Will Haré ever want to return to the jungle? And what about poor sweet Mari, back home? Either way, Guu is sure to make it a bumpy ride!
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!
If you liked the wacky humour in Hare + Guu Final then you may enjoy Azumanga Daioh. Both are fun slice of life series that don't need to be taken seriously. If you liked that easy-watching aspect of Hare + Guu then check out Azumanga.
F City, F Prefecture: the battleground where good and evil have finally chosen to decide once and for all who will rule the world…or at least that's the general idea! Neither side seems up for the task, as surviving the brutality of everyday life is enough of a chore. On the side of evil is the organization of Across, its only member the loudmouthed and abrasive Excel who struggles just to put food in her stomach; on the side of good, three disenfranchised, unemployed bachelors whose only pursuit in life is romance. Add in alien invasions, jungle warfare, and Mexican immigrant laborers to Japan, and this war doesn't seem likely to be ending soon!
As a lover of offbeat humour, I absolutely adore both of these series. You will frequently be left thinking "what am I watching....?" or "why can't I stop watching...?".
Despite both being comedic shows, they do have certain elements of struggles through adolescence, making friends and life in general.
The soundtracks to the series sum up perfectly the visual treats. Be it the Menchi karaoke or the jungle farewell song, you just can't help tapping your feet and singing along.
When the young Kotaro (errr...Rotaro) washes up on Papuwa island with a case of amnesia, he has no idea that his life is about to take a turn for the bizarre. With housemates such as the man-maid Liquid, an asexual snail and a transsexual fish with legs, Rotaro will have his hands full! But beneath the tranquility of the island lies a dangerous secret that could destroy the island, and the answer lies only with Rotaro. With enemies from his past afoot, his friends trying to eat him and a giant poisonous mushroom trying to get him high, what’s a young boy to do?!
Aside from both series sharing the same style of wacky humour, if you enjoyed watching Halé adapt to a new life, then you may enjoy watching the various characters in Papuwa adjust to a new culture.
