Kamichu! and K-On! are gentle and cute slice-of-life series that end with an exclaimation mark. They each feature a clumsy girl as a lead character, and her interactions with her friends. I vastly preferred Kamichu!, because I felt the characters were more interesting, there was a semblance of plot, and it made me laugh, but the recommendation still works both ways if you like really cute girls doing cute things.

If you liked K-on because it featured a band that plays cool music and has a pleasant story, then you might also like the total opposite of that concept. A metal band that is on its way to conquer the heavy metal world with epic legends.

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.

Both shows revolve around daily life in a high school club. The shows don't have any particular stories. Just chatter among the club members and the events almost always take place inside the club room.
