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.

Shinryaku! Ika Musume

Shinryaku! Ika Musume

Incensed at the damage done to the sea and its wildlife at the the hands of humanity, Squid Girl rises from the depths of the ocean to enslave humanity! Her mission proves more difficult than it first seems, however, when she gets dragooned into working at the Aizawa beach restaurant. Will the easily distracted, blissfully ignorant, and slightly thick Ika-Musume convert her managers' humble house into her base? Will she use the power of her mighty tentacles to bring all of humanity to heel? Or will she at least learn how to properly wait tables?

Both of these rather moe titles are about strange happenings in normal settings. Sure, Kanamemo's strangeness is lesbians while ika musume's is the much more believable anthropomorphic squid girl. But other than that, these shows are about the slightly off daily life in a slightly off world.

That and they also have some rather serious bits too, also completely at random

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 funny to me because of the lovely shoujo-ai undertone, where Yurumates 3D is way more random. Check out one if you liked the other as they are sure to make you giggle.
