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.
Ten-year-old genius Chiyo, animal-loving Sakaki, loudmouth Tomo, athletic Kagura, weight-conscious Yomi and dim-witted Osaka are six friends who share laughs, good times, and a high school homeroom. With scary (and sometimes perverted) teachers, school festivals, penguin suits and general hilarity abounding, you can be sure that there's never a dull day in the life of one of these students!
While Kanamemom is way more perverted than Azumanga they both are comedy about girls, featuring a similar theme. A young and unbelievably cute girl is suddenly thrown into environment of few years older girls, who can't help but adore and tease her. You like one of the show, you'll like the other as well.
Asu and Kyo are two orphaned sisters; their mother passed away some time ago, while their father abandoned them due to gambling issues. Asu and Kyo now live in a rundown apartment complex. Asu, the younger sister, is responsible for all of the housework while Kyo is in charge of living expenses; and together, the two sisters work hard to live a comfortable and enjoyable life. Looking to one another for support, Asu and Kyo experience the hardships of daily living, but are still able to welcome each day with a smile.
While Kanamemo have way more comedy than Binbou Shimai Monogatari, those shows are really similar. Both feature a young girl (or 2 girls in BSM case) who lost her relatives, and now tries to live on her own. While Kana is a bit more lucky than Asu and Kyou (since Kana actually finds a place that is sort of like family ) they both have to face troubles of working and going to school at the same time (on that note - both Kana and Kyou are working as a newspaper delivery ) . Also in both cases people around them try their best to help.
Both shows are slow-paced, have many cute moments, and some slightly sad moments. It never turns into a real drama though. Generally if you like one of them you should enjoy the other one as well.
Yukino and Kanade are twin sisters who now share a room at their new school in Tokyo. Ever since they were little, the pair has been exceptionally close – perhaps even a bit too close for siblings when eyes are turned away. But soon a girl named Sakuya, who often tails the two, begins to grow closer to Yukino; and after an alleged confession that she hears about, Kanade begins to get worried that something is going on behind her back. Can the three of the girls keep their relationships with each other on stable ground, or will jealousy and heartache come crashing down on them?
While both plots seem to have nothing to do with each other the characters are very interesting and tend to make you laugh at weird situations they are in. Both anime have shoujo-ai tones but Candy Boy takes it much more serious than Kanamemo. If you liked one check out the other as they are both wonderful stories that will make you go awww.
Kamizono Academy is so spacious that transfer student Ayumi Nonomura and long time resident Tatsuki Iizuka find themselves lost together in the corridors. With the addition of fiery Torako Kageyama and quirky, somber Suzume Saotome, the four quickly become friends and comrades in arms against boredom. Whether it's being a last minute Morals Officer with bisexual Nene or constructing robots with Kageyama, there's plenty of fun to go around at Kamizono Academy!
Hyakko and Kanamemo are both slice-of-life shows about a group of girls having fun together, creating ruckus and having their little issues. If you this formula and the wacky humor one of these shows had, definitely check out the other (although Kanamemo is even more in-your-face with its humor).
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!
Both of these prominently feature teenage girls. Both are slice of life, with an anchor to keep the action going. K-on! has the Light Music Club, and Kanamemo has the newspaper. Both are comedy, have an upbeat and cheerful tone. K-on! contains more moe than kana. If you like one, I recommended watching the other.
