It's the first day of high school, and plenty of school clubs are doing their best to recruit new members. However, for ditzy Yui, none of them seem to fit the bill. However, when she accidentally signs up to join the light music club, Yui begins a hilarious adventure to become a world class guitarist! There's just one problem: she's never played the guitar before in her life! Joined by bassist Mio, drummer Ritsu and keyboardist Tsugumi, Yui and the gang will juggle their studies with buying instruments, learning how to read music and even performing in the school festival, all in the hopes of someday becoming a successful band!
The year is 1925 and Japan is still a country with socially backwards views, particularly on women's rights. One young girl named Akiko Ogasawara decides to fight for equality in her own way - by forming a girls' baseball team! She soon enlists her good friend Koume Suzukawa, and it's now up to the two of them to put together a team of like-minded and spirited young ladies. Under the able and enthusiastic tutelage of English teacher Miss Garland, the girls will need to bond closely, learn well and practice hard if they are to stand their ground against boys' teams and show a misogynistic society exactly what they're made of... while having some fun in the process.
Similar in several ways, K-On! and Taiyou Yakyuu Musume are light-hearted and slow-paced tales about girls working hard for a goal and having fun along the way. The fact that they have different themes - music and baseball respectively - doesn't matter too much, as the anime spend more time on character interactions and general moe than they do on any particular storyline. If you had fun with one of these, the other ought to suit you down to the ground
While Taishou Yakyuu's plot and focus differ considerably from that of K-On!, the moe is also strong with the baseball story. Fans who liked K-On!'s artwork charming and enjoyed the interactions between high school girls will find much to love in J.C. Staff's summer title.
K-On! and Taishou Yakyuu Musume are gentle slice-of-lives about a group of cute schoolgirls and their troubles forming and maintaining an after-school club. Each has likeable (though a bit underdeveloped) characters and a healthy dose of moe.
Both anime are basically the same thing. Except in K-On the focus is music and in Taishou Yakyuu Musume it is baseball. A group of children get together and do either musical or baseball activities together while attending regular classes as well as taking it easy the slice of life way. Taishou Yakyuu Musume takes place in the past where k-on is more of a present setting. If you liked one i'm sure you'll like the other.
The clubs they're working on are different, the reasons why they're working hard on those clubs are different and most of the characters are quite different. But both shows focus more on the interactiosn between the characters and the fact that both shows are about a group of girls trying hard to establish their own club and because of that, developing their friendships in these sweet slice-of-life series.
Though K-On! and TYM are centered around different themes, forming a band and forming a baseball team respectively, both are similar in many aspects. Both are comedic, cutesy-type slice-of-life anime. In both anime, we see a group of girls getting together to form their club and excelling in it, while at the same time forming a strong bond among themselves. Both have a happy-go, gentle feel to them.
Each of these series are moetastic shows centered around school age-girls going through the trials of forming a club and making it successful, while focusing on a lot of similar humor. If you enjoyed one I'm sure you'll like the other.
It's the first day of middle school for Akari, and the enthusiastic girl is determined to reinvent her personality and have tons of fun in the process. Along with her friends, mischievous Kyouko, serious Yui, and adorable Chinatsu, the girl joins the Amusement Club, a group for students who just want to hang out and joke around! Over the year, the girls befriend upperclassmen, impersonate their favorite magical girl characters, and develop crushes... sometimes even on each other!
Both K-On! and Yuru Yuri involve a group of girls who try to save a club from getting shut down. Well, I guess they just use the club room in Yuru Yuri. Anyway, both series have fairly similar characters, so if you liked the main characters in one, you will probably like the main characters in the other.
If you liked K-on! or Yuru Yuri, you'd more than likely like the other as well. The two series both revolve around a club that often falls behind on the responsible category. Not to mention the shoujou ai sub text in both as well. If you enjoyed either of them, I high recommend the other!
Clean description of japanese high school musical life! no crimes, no romances, no demons...absolutely kawaii
Both animes have a very similar animation style, a main cast of four girls, yuri elements (K-on is obviously subtler with the yuri), and amazing music.If you like one, you will like the other
If you liked K-On! or Yuru Yuri, you'd likely enjoy the other too, as they are both quite similar. They both are about a group of girls enjoying their time at school, having many fun and exciting experiences along the way, and many funny moments too. In both, a lot of their time is spent in only a few locations, mainly a club room, so the focus is on the interaction between the characters, rather than on the things that are happening. Both are light hearted, calm and relaxed, except for the bursts of excitement here and there.
Yuru Yuri is essentially K-on without music. It focuses on clubs comprised of cute girls doing cute things. Both series feature girls with cute personalities, and good humor as the characters play off each other.
Both of them is really funny. Both includes girls in a club with a friend in the student council. I agree on what they say that if you love any one of them you'll surely love the other as well.
Kojirou-sensei, the rather indifferent teacher and coach of the school kendo club, is in financial dire straits. As a result, he makes a bet with his fellow kendo coach and former upperclassman to see who can assemble and train the better female kendo team, with the prize for Kojirou being a year's supply of food if he wins. Motivated by the idea of free food for a year, he begins to teach the club seriously; however, most of its members have already graduated, and so he is tasked with assembling members in addition to training them for the competition with his rival. While dealing with his eccentric students, he slowly rediscovers why he loves kendo and what it truly means to be a teacher.
These anime are slice of life anime about a group of girls in a club. one kendo, one light music. but the anime deal with similar themes, and both sport plenty of comedy and moe.
Slice of life about high school girls doing some unusual stuff in a way that makes it completely cute? Sure just name your order. We have well cooked story about kendo club (Bamboo Blade) or fresh from the oven anime about girls making a pop-band (K-on). Moe guaranteed.
K-On! and Bamboo Blade both start out with a "save-the-club" premise, and are all about having fun with the club and getting better as one. While K-On! is more laid back than Bamboo Blade, at their core they are about the very same thing: having fun with the club subject (Kendo / Music) and friends.
BB focuses on an all-girls club (that ends up having boys) that they have to save, while dealing with their differences (artistic type clashes with quiet moetype clashes with energetic airhead) and doing fun stuff (especially eating.)
Guess what? K-on does exactly the same!
Both may be about 2 totally different things (Kendo and Music) , you can see the same blend of characters. If you want the same type of "Club" thing, then these to things are for you.
K-On! and Bamboo Blade are both great anime about highschool girls forging new friendships through their club activities. Whether it's light music or kendo both groups of girls have lots of fun with their respective clubs. Lots of laughs and touching moments are in store for you if you watch either show. As these girls prove, trying something new can lead to fun and rewarding experiences!
Saio Private High School has a long tradition of quality education. However, like many other schools its enrollment and traditions are failing. School is no longer a necessity in the path to quality employment and for that reason, many teenagers are choosing to skip it entirely; this isn’t the case with the newly-transferred Manabi. She may be a whirlwind of humor and vision with her motto of “go straight forward”, but Manabi has the drive to bring the students of this small school both a new understanding of its purpose, and possibly a new joy in life.
Moe-girls join a club and try to make school fun.
Which anime was I taking about? Either, really. There's similar characters and similar art styles. Comedy and stuff, you know.
In a not so distant future, where the everyday life is way too serious, only one girl can bring salvation ... Manabi !
Owke, this is not the plot of the story, but it does give you the general idea of this anime. Manabi is a girl that wants to make schoollife more fun, whereas the other girls her age only want to do serious things. Manabi and her friends join the Student Counsel to try and organize all different kind of school activities agaisnt all the disinterests of their fellow schoolmates.
Although humor is an aspect that occurs throughout the whole series, friendschip is an other one that you will see all the time.
I think that if you liked K-On! you will like the overall style of Manabi Straight! too.
Both anime are about a group of girls that get together to make the best out of their school days. The humor and characters are very similar in each. The only main difference is that K-On focuses on music but if you liked one i'm sure you will like the other for more slice of school life goodness.
I think that both series, have almost identical characters and every girl from manabi has it's equivalent in k-on. They also look the same.
Group of girls gathers with a goal to enrich their high school lives with club activity (in one case it's the student council in the other it's the light music club). Needless to say both feature cute girls with the usual slice of life antics and comedy. The main character of both shows is a ditzy girl.
Both of these series are pretty high up on the moe scale, and feature cute high school girls aiming towards a goal. While K-On! is generally funnier, both are easy-watching.
Years ago, Saku moved away from his hometown, leaving behind his friend and tormentor Mihoshi. As a child, Mihoshi constantly forced the bookish and shy Saku to play and look at the stars; and now, as Saku moves back home to attend high school, he prays for a quiet school life free from her grasp. Unfortunately, Saku’s desires are quickly shattered as Mihoshi catches sight of him and convinces him to join the school’s astronomy club. Alongside Mihoshi, the other club members and Hime - another girl from Saku’s past who’s determined to win him over - Saku continues his dreadfully unordinary high school life with a grimace and positive attitude!
Both series revolve on clubs duing very spicific things. Both are slice of life and settle a lot on comedy and discovering who you are. and both have simmiler charecter modols
Both anime are basically the same thing. Except in K-On the focus is music and in Sora no Manimani it is looking at the stars. a group of children get together and do either musical or astrology activities together while attending regular classes as well as taking it easy the slice of life way. If you liked one i'm sure you'll like the other.
Both Sora no Manimani and K-On! are anime about a high-school club with people trying to get the most out of their hobby. They both have a very lighthearted feel to them and avoid the grim or heavy themes. If you enjoyed one of these, and are looking for a similar, lighthearted show about a group of high school students with their club, give the other a try!
Both animes revolve around a bunch of students and their club, just that in K-ON! it's the Music Club and in Sora no Manimani it's the Astronomy Club. I found that both had similar plots and themes, plus both have a good dose of comedy along with that light hearted feel to them that makes them great to watch at the end of the day. In the end, if you liked one, I'd check out the other, especially if you're interested in either Music or Astronomy, even though both don't delve too deep into either of them.
OK! If you like Sora no Manimani, you will also like K-On!! (and vice versa) Why?? Because these two anime('s) has similarities: the main character joins/creates a club (Sora no Manimani - Astronomy Club; K-On! - light music club); Yui and Mihoshi are very similar! their attitudes, oh, I can't think of anymore. So, watch K-On!/Sora no Manimani if you liked this show.
There both are comedy involving school clubs and the characters are enjoying there hobbies and interests. they both involve similar light hearted themes
