Synopsis:

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!

Saki

Saki

Winning a game of Mahjong is hard; getting the same score every time is practically impossible. So imagine the surprise of the school Mahjong club when Saki Miyanaga walks in and does just that. Despite her dislike for the game, her talent is obvious and it's up to the club members - the top-heavy Nodoka, the energetic Yuuki, the cunning Mako and the permanently in control club president Hisa - to persuade her to join the club and help them reach the Nationals. But even then, will their combined skills be enough to overturn some of the toughest high school players the country has to offer?

Both Saki and K-On! are typical examples of succesful "cute girls being cute" anime. They both are moe-series about the members of a high-school club having fun together. Saki is more focussed on competition than K-On!, but in essence both shows are trying to do exactly the same: keeping you entertained with light-hearted fun and cuteness.

cruzinforit

Ahhhh K-on, and Saki. Two excellent anime that feature cute girls doing cute things. Both go a little deeper than that, but especially Saki. Both of these are about high school girls and their clubs. K-on is light music, Saki is Mahjong.  Both are stuffed to the brim with moe.

From there the similarities diverge quite a bit. K-on! in general is more light in tone and feel, and there is a lot more emphasis on the "Cute girls doing cute things" aspect.  Saki focuses much more heavily on the primary plot, that is to say, Mahjong. And boy what Mahjong it is. Exciting toIf you like one of these, chances are that you will like the other.

Throw Kenji Harima, the school delinquent with a crush on Tenma into the mix and you've got one twisted love triangle of unrequited proportions! Can love find the trio happiness before their attention-grabbing stunts end up hurting more than their egos?

Both are comedy anime and are about school life. At both Anime I LOLed. Both anime take place on school for the most part and in both Anime there is a vacation (or was the vacation/trip in School Rumble 2??)

m0m0

K-ON! and School Rumble are two similar High School based anime. Both anime have casts that are in high school and are fairly crazy. The lead girl in each anime has the "airhead" complex and a sister to keep them heading in the right direction. Even though school rumble is a little more crazy than K-ON!, i believe that people who watch the one will enjoy the other. The comedy of both anime is not notch!

Mangina

If you enjoy following cute and well-drawn girls throughout their daily lives and club activities, both of these series might be of interest to you; especially if you enjoy music or singing!

In both series you get to follow the protagonists and their music clubs. While K-On! has taken more of the MOE-approach, Tari Tari is one closer to reality with well developed characters.

In short words, I'd say that Tari Tari is very similar to K-On! and the differences would be that K-On! is more of a MOE-anime, while Tari Tari is more serious.

Bronia

Both are about friends in a school band. Furthermore, both are absolutely gorgeous-looking with cute characters (even the boys, in Tari Tari, are adorable!) Tari Tari has more drama than the easy-going K-On! but they both go hand-in-hand for fans of Slice of Life anime about music and school kids.

Toradora!

Toradora!

Ryuuji Takasu has an eventful life: his classmates think he's a delinquent due to his 'killer' eyes; his crush Minori seems ever out of reach; and he’s just had an unfortunate encounter with 'palm-sized Taiga' – a feisty and dainty wench in his class. With different cleaning habits and tempers, the two clash like night and day; that is, except for the fact that Taiga and Ryuuji have crushes on the other's good friend! With school rumors abounding, the duo must now work together to play matchmaker for each other. Who will end up with their true love?

While K-On doesn't show much romantic promise like Toradora! did, I think anyone who liked Toradora will like K-On.

The comedy is similar, as well as the pace.  Some characters are alike, aswell.

eaper

Although Toradora! is obviously more romantic, both of the series take place in a school with similar comedy and a similar pace. Both of these shows had good animation and sound tracks (although K-On! has the better soundtrack, seeing as it is based on a music club).

Working!!

Working!!

Self-professed lover of all things small and cute, Souta Takanashi finds himself dragooned into working at the Wagnaria family restaurant by the diminutive and vivacious Poplar Taneshima. Though the pay is reasonable and the clientele polite, the high school student is often at his wits' end when dealing with the quirky staff. If the indifferent and street-tough manager, katana-carrying floor chief, and terminally weak Poplar weren't enough, Souta frequently fears for his life, as every encounter with the violently androphobic Inami ends in injury. How long can he survive before the combined stress and harm do him in?

Each of these series have a rather similar feel, similar art work, and some similar comedy thrown in them. There are some parellels in the types of characters they have and they both experiment with different types of moe and a mixture of different characters thrown all together in a similar environment.

oodalally

The comedy and stlye are very similar. Both are reletively slow paced, slice of life animes and contain a generous dollop of moe. If you like one, the other is worth watching.
