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.

After a virus claims millions, most live in the safety of a closed-off world, relegating themselves to an on-line existence. But when a young girl decides to brave life outside the virtual world, she finds a group of friends—and a killer. Someone is hunting and violently murdering children. Who? And why? And is she the next target? Get plugged in to the the cyber-shocking animated thriller, Loups=Garous!
First off this isn't a recommendation for the people who absolutoly love K-on! as their favorite show. This is for the people who like K-on! but admit that it isn't the greatest anime ever made. If you feel this way you should watch Loups=Garous, it is like K-on! but with a much deeper plot. Though both animes are very moé but in different ways. Also there's kind of a joke that the characters in Loups=Garous are in a band, and Kaduki looks kinda like Yui.
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!
