Several months after their New Years' live performance, the light music club has returned to Sakura High for a new school year. Now seniors in Sawa-chan's homeroom class, Yui, Mio, Ritsu and Mugi commence their final year as high school students. While many others would fret about their entrance examinations, the Keion Bu have more important things on their minds, be it shopping for shelves, cleaning out the storage room or that age old problem of trying to recruit new members. But while there's music, snacks and school trips aplenty, one question still remains... will the girls be able to leave their mark on the school before they graduate?
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!
These two anime show that a bunch of cute girls doing nothing can be fun. Warning! Extreme amount of moe! :)
Both are slice of life comedy's about a group of high school girls as they go through high school having fun and developing fond memories of each other. There is some zainy humor and a lot of clumsy humor between the 2. And both have an overly popular female character who aren't very crazy about the attention they get.
Azumanga Daioh is a classic slice of life anime that every K-on fan shouldn't miss. K-on has a smaller cast which make it easier for the audience to relate, while AD has a great pacing and some brilliant skecthes and gags.
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...
Yuno is a high school student who dreams of becoming a famous artist; and after being admitted at Yamabuki High School of Arts, she is one step closer to her dream. Yuno must move to an apartment complex near the school, and there, in Hidamari-so, she meets three new friends: Miyako, a very active person who will do anything to get her hands on something to eat; Hiro, an upperclassman who is obsessed with weight gain; and Sae, the oldest of the bunch and also a tomboy. From wild cosplaying teachers to bizarre school myths, Yuno and friends enjoy fun times and crazy days at Yamabuki High!
The fluidly moe girls of the Keion Bu match well with the no-straight man feeling of Hidamari Sketch. Both series build from giggles into guffaws though carefully constructed sight gags and buckets of character driven humor.
If you find yourself chuckling along at the antics of Mugi, Yui, Mio, Ritsu, and Azusa, you're gonna love Hiro, Yuno, Sae, and Miyako to bits.
Kyousuke Kosaka is a normal teenager with average grades and an average home life, but when he finds out that his overachieving younger sister Kirino has been hiding her vast anime and eroge collection from their unassuming parents, his world turns inside out! Now, having promised to help his formerly distant sibling navigate her two distinct lives, Kyousuke finds himself drawn into Kirino's world of magical girl anime and "little sister" fetish games while covering for his sibling to her parents and friends, not to mention trying to provide what guidance he can.
the character designs are flawless. both these animes are incredibly moe moe moe!!! both of these animes will make you laugh so hard. there are absolutely no corner cuts on the production. they are fully animated and rarely you will see a still picture. watch them for the comedy and character design. if you liked this, you will definitely enjoy the other.
As K-on is based upon "cute girls doing cute things", Sakigake!! Otoko Juku is all about "manly characters doing manly things". The reason why you should try both, it's because both these anime make fun of the cliches and tropes of their respective genres and formula in a quite clever way. Notwithstanding that, both of them (despite being polar opposites in almost every other aspect) focus the story on the bound of friendship that the characters develop during their high school days.
