"If I don't have to do it, I won't. If I do have to do it, make it quick," is the basic principle by which energy conservationist Houtarou Oreki lives. But after his sister convinces him to join the Classics Club, Houtarou's life is turned upside down when he meets Chitanda, a perpetually-inquisitive girl who challenges the boy's easygoing existence. Intrigued by the slightest hint of a mystery afoot, Chitanda doesn't hesitate to pester the reluctant yet highly analytical Houtarou into satisfying her curiosity at every turn, no matter how small the problem. Alongside fellow members Satoshi and Ibara, the group tackles cases ranging from a self-locking classroom door, a strangely-popular library book, and even the shadowy history of the very club to which they belong!
Tomoya Okazaki is a third-year high school student who is generally bored with life and doesn't take his studies, future, or anything else seriously. One day, however, he meets a lonely-looking girl in the school courtyard, Nagisa Furukawa. She explains to him the source of her loneliness: she had missed a lot of the previous school year and thus is repeating her third year; everybody that she knew has already graduated, and she is lonely. Tomoya is rather indifferent at first, but decides that he has nothing better to do and spends increasingly more time helping Nagisa restore the school drama club. As his relationship with Nagisa grows, Tomoya begins to open up to various other people around the school as well...
Both are produced by Kyoto Animation, and a somewhat lazy male lead - voiced by the same seiyuu - constantly helps a hopeless girl while participating in a club together, although he didn’t want to join/won’t join.
Both have an overly enthusiastic female lead who meet a somewhat lazy/low-energy male and form a club to stop it from being abandoned completely, all the while making new friends. This is probably the only similarity between the two, however.
Have you ever felt like the world would be a better place if certain people weren’t around? Such grim daydreams might occur when watching the dismal daily news, but on one fateful day, Yagami Light finds that these daydreams can become reality. By pure happenstance, he comes across a black notebook entitled "Death Note", whose text within states that whoever's name is written on its pages will die. With the aid of the death god Ryuk, Light takes it upon himself to rid the world of its corruption, ushering in a new era of purity one death at a time. But as Ryuk foretells, Light's actions will not go unchallenged...
If you liked Hyouka you will probably like Death Note too. The main male Oreki, from Hyouka, seems similar to L because they both have a nack for solving mysteries. If L was not so weird and had a more normal personality he would be Oreki! If you don't think those characters are similar watch the beginning of episode 20 of Hyouka and I guarentee you will see a physical resemblence. Both animes have great animation and interesting characters.
Both Death Note and Hyouka have suspenseful detective elements. Both are high production value series.
At Yamaboshi High, joining a school club is required, so when Himeko, Iori, Taichi, Yoshifumi and Yui couldn't find a suitable choice, they decided to create their own: the School Culture Club! Together, they pass the days meeting and coming up with topics for the group's newspaper – that is, until one day, Yoshifumi and Yui proclaim that they switched bodies last night! Soon after, all five members of the gang find themselves inadvertently swapping at random, with no end in sight. What, or who, caused this supernatural phenomenon?
Both stories revolve around a school club and they have a similar feel to them. I liked them both alot.
Both are about a high school group of friends that get involved in some pretty mysterious stuff. Although Hyou-ka is quite a bit more lighthearted than Kokoro, they have a similar atmosphere that mixes comedy, mystery, friendship dynamics and a hint of romance.
Rikka Takanashi is a teenage girl who possesses the strongest ocular power known to man: the Tyrant’s Eye. She's currently locked in a fierce war with a shadowy organization, and the fate of the world may hang in the balance with each passing battle... or at least this is what she believes. In actuality, Rikka is merely a normal high school girl afflicted with chuunibyou syndrome, a "disease" that makes one prone to delusional flights of fancy. Meanwhile former chuunibyou sufferer Yuuta Togashi is enrolled at the same school, looking to put his embarrassing junior high exploits behind him. However, when Rikka discovers his past life as the "Dark Flame Master", she uses this to her advantage to include him in all of her wacky schemes! With Rikka’s zany behavior dragging him further and further from normalcy, Yuuta must try to pull her back into the real world – or risk getting sucked into hers!
at a glance, they're two different types of comedySLOF subgenres- one's a mystery and the other is slightly over edge hyper kinetic, yet both series have similar character designs -especially the eyes +Chitanda and Tsuyuri share the some of the same qualities
Kyu has always been interested in solving mysteries. After assisting in a murder case, he earns the opportunity to take the entrance exam for the Dan Detective School (DDS), a famous detective school established by the equally famous detective, Dan Morihiko! DDS is trusted implicitly by the police and receives their absolute cooperation in all matters, and its students are often able to crack even the most difficult cases. Can Kyu, along with fellow classmates Megumi, Kintarou, Kazuma and Ryu, meet the demands of the school and the crimes that cross their paths?
Both series revolve around a single character in particular that is exceptional at solving mysteries. In Hyou-ka, the mysteries are far more mundane, but have just as complex solutions that Tantei Gakuen Q has, though those mysteries typically involve murder. Another similarity is the school setting. Tantei Gakuen Q focuses on a class that solves mysteries, while Hyou-ka features a school club that solves mysteries. The ensemble casts have some similarities, but Hyou-ka revolves more on one main character. If you liked Tantei Gakuen Q, you will no doubt enjoy Hyou-ka for the far more stylized approach. If you like Hyou-ka, you will no doubt notice the similarity in the logic behind deducing the solutions to the mysteries. Both series have a similar tone, especially in regard to the way each mystery is taken seriously. They also both have their fair share of amusing moments.
