Hyou-ka: You Can't Escape

Hyou-ka: You Can't Escape

"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!

The art style is somewhat similar to each other and Chitanda Eru from Hyouka has the same attitude as Hirasawa Yui from K-On! :>

Naga Naga says...

Both feature a similar concept of clubs and slice of life, while Hyoka is mystery K-ON! is about music and...tea? Charachter costumization is very similar and some charachters resemble  each other in funny ways. If you love Moe that is reason enough to watch other one...

Gochuumon wa Usagi Desu ka?

Gochuumon wa Usagi Desu ka?

High school freshman Cocoa Hoto got lost and bumped into a coffee shop called "Rabbit House" while looking for a boarding house for the upcoming semester of her new school.

Gochuumon and K-On! are slice of life series revolving around girls. Whereas K-On! is based on Light Music Club ,Gochuumon revolves around coffee shop the MC father owns.

Both series have "cute" character designs for girls and every episode is mix of cuteness and light hearted humor which doesn't fail to bring a smile on your mouth.

If you liked one, you'll love other.

Both K-On and Gochuumon center around a group of energetic, cute, and often very ditzy school girls. Each episode is filled with fluff, silliness, and so much moe that you'll most likely be rendered unconscious. K-On is more about music-related adventures while Gochuumon has a lot to do with cafes, but fans of the 'cute girls doing cute things' genre will most likely enjoy both titles.

Free! is basically a genderswapped K-On! with swimming instead of music. Both anime are about a group of friends starting a club and encountering all sorts of problems that come along with it. The animation style is very similar (which is a given, since they're done by the same studio) and feature all kinds of adorable, cute characters.

Sianeka Sianeka says...

I thought I would be the only oddball who thought of K-On while watching Free! Especially since I wasn't especially fond of K-On! nor did I find the characters especially appealing.  The boys of Free! are much more to my taste.

However, if you enjoyed the camaraderie of the characters teaming up together and the K-on gang's all-for-one group dynamic, you will enjoy the Iwatobi Swim Club's member bonding and friendship development as well.

Both anime feature a group of friends whose ties to one another grow stronger through their involvement with their school club activity, and feature the slice-of-life stories that occur as the story of their club's evolution evolves.

A special bonus: even though both anime have a similar feel in animation since they share the same animation studio, Free! adds some outstanding swimming dynamics and animation that makes common everyday water look absolutely gorgeous and stunning.

If you enjoyed watching the K-On friends together, and want to see a group of guy friends together the way the K-On girls interact, then I think you really will enjoy watching Free! as well.

School Rumble 2

School Rumble 2

The second year of high school is starting and things are still as crazy as always. Despite numerous attempts, the ever-so-hopeful Harima and the overly-naïve Tenma failed to get their message of love across. Now they are pumped up for a new term and ready to renew their illustrious and self-destructing attempts at a confession! But be it a love infested manga or even a gigantic plate of curry; nothing seems to do the trick. What other methods can they take, as the old love triangle is expanding at an alarming rate?!

Both are comedy anime and are about school life. If you like one, you'll like the other. Both anime made me LOL. Both anime take place in school. The characters kinda stick together and go about their lifes as a group.

Yoku Wakaru Gendai Mahou

Yoku Wakaru Gendai Mahou

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
