After her grandmother dies, thirteen year-old Kana Nakamachi runs away from home convinced her absent parents will sell her. She tries to find a job, but with nowhere willing to hire a girl of her age without parental consent, she is back at square one. Then, to make matters worse, a young girl called Yume crashes her bicycle into Kana and knocks her unconscious! Following this chance encounter, Kana learns of a job vacancy at the newspaper company that Yume works for and quickly applies. Now Kana has secured herself a live-in job delivering newspapers along with her new co-workers: lively Yume; quiet Yuki; drunken and perverted Haruka; money-hungry Hinata; and grade school deputy manager, Saki. From memorizing her paper route to learning how to ride a bicycle to fixing her terrifying smile, Kana’s new life has only just begun.
Ahh, the life of an elementary school student. Though Chika, Matsuri, Miu and Ana should focus on schoolwork, they’d much rather have fun instead. Whether it’s outings with 20-year-old-chain-smoker Noboe, holding each other hostage or learning to speak English with Ana’s foreign-born skills, there’s never a dull moment in the life of the girls. Join this cute quartet as they do cute (and often devious) things in cute and quirky ways!
Both Ichigo Mashimaro and Kanamemo are slice-of-life series with a lot of comedy thrown in. While the comedic content of Kanamemo is more wacky than that of Ichigo, if you enjoyed one, it's worth checking out the other.
Those two series are both slice-of-life comedies with similar artwork. Be warned that Kanamemo's humor is a LOT whackier, and Ichigo Mashimaro is definitely cuter, but both shows portray the same themes, though each in a different manner.
Both anime have a group of wacky girls that do hilarious things together. Kanamemo takes things to the more crazy odd side of humor but both anime have amazing characters that are sure to make you giggle and go awwwww with cuteness. Check out one if you liked the other.
Both Strawberry Marshmallow and Kanamemo are slice-of-life shows about a group of girls with lots of comedy thrown in. Kanamemo is a lot wackier and "in-your-face" with its humor, and Strawberry Marshmallow a lot more innocent, but both shows have a very similar feel to them because of the wide variety of personalities. If you enjoyed one of these, check out the other!
First impressions are not always the best way to judge a show, and Mashimaro and Kanamemo both prove this. Slice of life mixed with comedy give these an easy to watch element. If you're looking for a cute and adorable bit of fun, I recommend both.
Eighteen-year-old Aida Yurume has moved to Tokyo to prepare for her entrance exams. She slowly finds her way to Maison de Wish, her new home away from home; and there, she meets her new housemates Kumi, Sae and Matsukichi. Together, the quartet participates in a variety of slow-paced adventures, from shooting off a solitary firework to deciding who will clean out a moldy rice cooker. Whether it’s trying to escape the heat or hiding under a kotatsu, Aida will experience many things with her new friends at Maison de Wish.
If someone saw kanamemo and decided to load up flash CS3 and make their own version of it, it'd probably be like yurumates.
Both have weird humor and weird people in an otherwise normal setting.
Kanamemo and Yurumates both centre on a young girl moving into a new home and making new firends. Both protagonists from each series have an active imagination and adapt to their new lives. While Yurumates is more slow paced than Kanamemo, if you like one, it's worth checking out the other.
Although I found Yurumates to be the much more enjoyable of the two, these two slice of life shows both have a lot in common. The initial premise along with the funny antics thrown in that keep true to the 'don't take it serious' vibe that is nearly a trademark of this genre.
Watching the first episode of Kanamemo made me think of Yurumates. Both anime feature a female lead who moves into a new home with some "interesting" housemates. Both animes mainly focus on the humor resulting from the interactions between the characters in different situations.
Yuno is a high school student who dreams of becoming a famous artist; and after being admitted at Yamabuki High School of Arts, she is one step closer to her dream. Yuno must move to an apartment complex near the school, and there, in Hidamari-so, she meets three new friends: Miyako, a very active person who will do anything to get her hands on something to eat; Hiro, an upperclassman who is obsessed with weight gain; and Sae, the oldest of the bunch and also a tomboy. From wild cosplaying teachers to bizarre school myths, Yuno and friends enjoy fun times and crazy days at Yamabuki High!
Both Kanamemo and Hidamari Sketch focus on a slightly ditzy female lead, who is living alone for the first time - albeit through different circumstances. Both Kana from Kanamemo and Yuno from Hidamari Sketch are looked after by their new housemates as they're shown the ropes. Both also share a similar comedic tone so if you like one, then it's worth checking out the other.
Both anime are about a girl who comes to a new place and needs to learn the ropes and has lots of friends to help her along the way. Both have a funny way at looking at certain things that will make you laugh although Kanamemo is much more wacky and random with some undertones of shoujo-ai check out one if you liked the other as they are sure to make you giggle.
I find the characters in these two slice of life series to be reminiscent of each other. Perhaps it is just their reltionship dynamics or the slower paced feel of these shows, but regardless if you enjoyed one be sure to give the other a try.
Meet the Minami sisters, three girls living on their own and doing their best to make it through life's little snags and adventures. Kana, the middle sister, has far more energy than common sense; Chiaki, the youngest, is more reserved, but her sharp tongue and devious mind often cause trouble for others; and Haruka, the eldest, acts like a mother to the other two, is beautiful and kind, but has a fearsome stern streak. Together, no obstacle can stand in their way, be it school, romance, or even cooking.
Two animes featuring mainly female cast, focused on comedy but still able to pull some nice sentimental "we argue but we all love each other stuff". Character types are different in both of them, but if you like one light comedy about young girls you can't dislike the other.
Adorable kids living their lives are the focus of both Minami-ke and Kanamemo. Add in a dash of every day drama and you have two very similar shows. If you love something a little more light hearted, then I highly recommend both of these.
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!
Cute girls doing cute things and both have a lovely yuri tone to them. Kanamemo has no schooling elements to it but both are sure to make you dawww and laugh at what happens between the characters.
Teenager girls, cute, slice of life, and yuri themes. Both are full of Moe, and have a cheerful and upbeat tone. If you liked one, you will almost definitely like the other imo.
