Kanaka, Saki and Ayuko are three girls who, as fate would have it, meet each other just before starting high school. Kanaka accidentally bumps into Ayuko, ruining the girl's ice cream cone, and their friendship soon follows! Together, the trio navigates high school life, whether giving each other nicknames, racing each other to class, or just having fun.
Yui, Yukari and Yuzuko have just entered high school, eager to have a great time. They quickly become the sole members of the Data Processing Club, using the computers frequently to look up information and find interesting videos. Whether they're debating the merits of sauce on curry bread, trying to determine how some women manage to have huge breasts or dealing with the sweltering heat, these three friends will also manage to have fun in the process.
Both are tremendously funny anime about cute girls doing cute things. And their clubs! Both have oodles of yuri subtext and straight man/funny man humor. They are different enough that they aren't carbon copies of each other, but both rely on random humor and the oddness of its cast to make the viewer laugh. If you like one, you should try out the other.
In a moment of pure warmth and happiness, it is said that children of the light, known as Tamayura, will appear. Fuu Sawatari is a young girl who loves taking photographs the same way that her beloved father did while he was alive. Having recently moved to the town her family frequently visited when she was younger, Fuu enjoys her life to the fullest alongside her friends Kaoru, Norie and Maon. Whether the gang have a sleepover, chase a furry cat around town, or simply enjoy a delicious lunch, Fuu always has her camera in hand in the hopes of finally capturing the illusive Tamayura on film.
Both have a group of girls doing things without any real going on plot. Both series are ligth hearted and have quirky characters. The colourtemplate is quite similar.
Tamayura however is far more slow paced with less comedic moments. It's slower paced nature makes it less likely to be appreciated by those who like more high spirited slice of lives and therefore it might be a good idea to skip this one.
K-on! is a genre standard which many slice of life get compared to and even if only for ''otaku-cred'' should probably be at least checked out if you liked Tamayura.
Tamayura is noted to be a ''healing'' anime rather than a comedy like K-on! So if you're looking for some healing it might be worth checking out, but if you're looking for comedy it's probably better to look elsewhere.
Ouran High is a school for the extremely wealthy or, in Haruhi's case, the extremely talented. But no amount of talent will help when Haruhi accidentally drops an eight million yen vase in a music room. The vase was the property of Ouran High School Host Club, a group of attractive young men who, for a fee, provide their time and affections for their lovesick clientele: the female students. Fascinated by this strange new specimen, a poor and clumsy commoner, they force Haruhi to work for them until the debt is repaid; but they get a lot more than they bargained for...
Both OHSHC and K-On! are lighthearted series featuring high school clubs, and they both have plenty of comedic moments.
The characters are lovable in both series, and although there are differences between them (more of a romance element in Ouran than K-On!, different main character sexes), but they both have themes of friendship and school life.. and they're both super cute! ^.^
