Synopsis:

In the year 20XX, insects have developed immunity to every kind of insect spray. To counter the incredible rise in insect numbers the Japanese government developed tiny extermination robots code named "Hoihoi-san". The popularity of Hoihoi-san units rises not only as a night time extermination unit, but for doll collectors as well! However, when a rival company introduces its own tiny extermination robots a new form of corporate sabotage begins, as they target not only the insects, but all Hoihoi-san units themselves!

Hoihoi-san and Rozen Maiden both have a remarkably gothic feel to them, with very interesting small characters. Though Hoihoi-san is short in length and Rozen is a full series, that doesn't matter. If you appreciated the mood or even the content in one, you'd surely like the other.
Ran

Both anime involve little dolls fighting; in hoi hoi san the dolls use guns, and in rozen maiden they use magic. The plots and genres are much different but the general mood and action will probably make you like both.

KiraRin

I'm not sure why, but when watching HoiHoi-san, I was immediately reminded of Rozen Maiden. The first striking similarity is the characters - dolls coming to life and fighting one another. Rozen Maiden features magical battles and is a little more restrained than HoiHoi...

However, the tongue-in-cheek feel of both shows should endear you to both of these.

Bradalee

Despie one being a full series, and the other being a ten minute short, i was instantly reminded of Rozen Maiden when i put on HoiHoi-san

It's mainly the cute dolls that come to life and fight each other, with both having somewhat of a dark tone and plenty of action. So if you liked one for the cute dolls fighting things aspect, then the other might be something you should at least check out.

Super Kuma-san

Super Kuma-san

Kuma is a typical friendly sentient stuffed bear -- that is, until he gets angry and transforms into Super Kuma-san, protector of all that is good and pure! With a homicidal doll on the loose, Kuma-san is up to his paws in trouble. Can he stop the carved beauty before it's too late?

It amazes me how bizarre these one episode OVAs can get, and Super Kuma San and Hoihoi-san definitely excel in that department. With a short run time and plenty of wackiness to occur, you'd have to enjoy one if you liked the other.
W0m6at

In both anime cute, toys/toylike creations pack a mean punch, shocking many of the unexpecting human witnesses. The cuteness in appearance and some actions are contrasted with bursts of energetic violence.

Alien Nine

Alien Nine

At a typical elementary school in Japan, yearly chores are being distributed. Yuri and 3 other students are chosen to be the beneficiaries of the alien hats for the year. Alien hats?! Yuri's sentiments, exactly. Despite her misgivings, she and her classmates must round up stray aliens that have escaped from a crashed spaceship -- with the help of the alien hats, of course.

Looking for something super cute with lots of darkness and wackiness beneath? Look no further! Both are equally as bizarre and unique.

Cencoroll and Hoihoi-san are short and weird. But weird in a really cute way. A cute violent way. I'm not really sure how else to describe either of these, but check the other out if you liked one.

Higan

Higan
  • OVA (1 ep x 8 min)
  • 2002

In the dark forest, a battle is raging between viciously piloted armored tanks, and manned robotic machines whose pilots won't go down without a fight. For a handful of men, surviving the night, the gunfire and the explosions is the only thing that matters. The enemies are tough and the price of failure is death. With no backup and nowhere to run, will anyone make it out alive?

Higan and Hoihoi-san have completely different stories, but both alternate radar and shooting scenes in the beginning of their stories. They're both very short and rather dark. Higan does not share the cuteness of Hoihoi-san, though.
