If you liked the K-On! anime, the Anime-Planet community thinks you'd like:
Super Sonico is an 18-year old college student who plays guitar for the three-girl band Fastest Speed in Space and models for pin-ups. In spite of her busy schedule, she still finds time to help her grandmother at her restaurant. One night, her band members Suzu and Fuuri, are late to a concert, forcing her to play alone. The result of that show will have far-reaching consequences for Sonico.
Both anime feature a lot of young women playing instruments and a whole lot of focus on slice of life stuff (keep in mind that SoniAni is far more vapid than K-On! ever manages to be). SoniAni is very much ecchi, while K-On! usually manages to not sink to such low tactics. The cast in K-On! is much more varied and features several mains, while SoniAni is basically just about Sonico. Still, if you saw one and want more female characters playing instruments now and then, do check the other one out.
The brash Hotori Arashiyama is a far from regular girl with the lofty dream of becoming a genius high school detective, but for now she is working at the Seaside maid café to earn some extra money. Unfortunately the establishment itself is deserted and the teen is far from being the epitome of a gracious maid. Enter Toshiko, Hotori’s friend and classmate, whose expertise and passion for maid cafés – as well has her interest in Sanada, one of the few regular customers – leads her take on the quest to turn Seaside into a bistro to be proud of. However, can a cafe owned by an elderly woman whose solution to everything is curry and staffed by a clueless, foolhardy teenager really become a success, or even attract more than the usual four patrons?
The humor and randomness in both animes are so similar, so if you like K-on you would probably enjoy Soredemo Machi wa Mawatteiru too, and vice-versa. The ending song of Soredemo Machi wa Mawatteiru also reminds me of K-on because the characters are playing as if they were a band.
A photograph is a mysterious force that creates magical moments the instant the shutter closes and allows people’s hearts to connect. For the new girl in town, Fuu Sawatari, this is more than a saying but a way of life as she spends her days quietly attempting to capture those special instances on film and use them to bring others joy. Along with her friends – and her beloved camera – Fuu reminisces about her father, begins to contemplate where her future lies and wonders whether she can capture more of the mysterious Tamayura light bubbles in her photos filled with warmth and friendship.
K-On and Tamayura first felt similar to me with their cast - quirky young high school girls building their friendships over food, tea, and random outings. They also both have that moe feeling, which is laid on much thicker in K-On. Where K-On deals with making music Tamayura focuses on photography. Two great slice-of-life titles which will leave you warm inside!
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.
In today's technology-driven society, everything has to move with the times, and magic is no exception. As spells are cast with various magic "codes", made up of binary digits, a computer becomes just as useful to the aspiring mage as a magic wand. One such would-be wizard is Koyomi Morishita, a girl who suffers from a bizarre inability to cast more than one type of spell. No matter how hard she concentrates she can only use code to do one thing: summon metal wash basins, directly above people's heads more often than not! Hoping to improve her versatility, she becomes a student of voluptuous expert witch Misa Anehara. However, with malevolent "daemons" - monsters summoned by unscrupulous magic wielders - appearing at every turn, Koyomi will need all the help she can get!
Both of these shows have an adorable cast that are best describe as being cute, warm, fuzzy, slightly clusmy and ditzy (in other words, "moe" if you want an otaku-term for it ^^). They both leave you with a fuzzy feel-good kind of emotion, and although they might not be the most epic-awesomest show ever, they will certainly bring a cute smile to your face simply because the cast are just ADORABLE~~!! XD
