Karin is a vampire, but as fate would have it she is a freak among her own kind; for Karin doesn’t drink the blood of her counterparts – she is cursed to be a blood maker, forcing her to inject her extra blood into her victims. What’s worse is that if she doesn’t find an outlet for the blood in time, it explodes in a massive nose bleed of impressive volume. In Karin's twisted day-going state, she finds it nearly impossible to find safe victims; so, nose bleeds are a major problem. When transfer student and new classmate Usui Kenta proves to have exactly the kind of emotions her vampire nature most enjoys, she finds herself in comedic dire straights!
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!
Comedy! Karin and Azumanga Daioh are two anime that will keep smiles on your faces! Karin has a little more drama/depth to it than Azumanga but the characters in both shows are goofy and loveable. They were both two anime that I was forced to watch episode after episode. Azumanga Daioh is lighthearted with simple high school girl humor. I admit I stalled on that one because I didn't want it to end. I can assure you that you will be pleased after watching either one of these shows. Karin is the oddest vampire you'll ever meet whereas Osaka (Azumanga) is slow and silly. Ahh I can't put it into words anymore... go watch!
If you're looking for hilarious school life shows, both AD and Karin fit the bill. Although Karin is more fantastical than AD, they both are funny and heart-warming. Both series really let one fall in love with the characters.
President of the Student Council at the almost-all-boys Seika High School, the hard-as-nails Misaki Ayuzawa works every day to make life easier on the small population of co-eds who have enrolled there. Though an unholy terror to all things male during school hours, in order to provide for her impoverished family, she secretly works after school at a maid cafe in Akihabara. However, when campus hottie Usui Takumi wanders into the restaurant during her shift, suddenly she finds her reputation in school at his mercy...
It's a little difficult to explain why Karin and Kaichou wa Maid-sama are similar, but I know for certain that if you enjoyed Karin, you will LOVE Kaichou wa Maid-sam.
Both are school-life drama, both have sweet female protagonists that work themselves too hard. Both incorporate a lot of good humor, and there are laugh-out-loud moments in both.
Both Karin and Kaichou wa Maid-sama also have very likable male protagonists; both, ironically, with the last name Usui!
The romance is a little more straightforward in Kaichou wa Maid-sama, but Karin had very sweet romantic moments as well. If you're enjoying Karin, give Kaichou wa Maid-sama a go as well!
Both of these include the male lead keeping the female lead's more-or-less embarrassing secret. Both are romance driven series with comedy on the side in a school setting. If you like one there is reason to watch the other.
Sawamura Seiji is the most notorious delinquent at his high school -- always getting into fights and causing problems, leaving him single and unlucky with the ladies. After another long day of rejection, Seiji discovers that the love of his life might have finally appeared, but in the unlikeliest of places... his right hand?! Now, in addition to dealing with daily fights and the gossip of his classmates, Seiji must handle a new problem of embarassing proportions: Kasugano Midori, a pretty young girl in place of his hand, who happens to have fallen in love with him!
Karin and Midori Days have a very similar genre. They both are about a love story that occurs in school. These anime contain comedy and are peaceful, so the watcher can relax. Try them and you'll know what I mean.
I watched Midori Days a long time ago and as soon as I saw Karin, I was immediately reminded of it. The main girl has something unrealistic and strange happen to her and then the main boy finds a way to somehow make the situation managable. They're both also good at making dramatic things hilarious and they'll have you forcing yourself to stay up until the early hours to find out what happens in the end. Also, the romance in both of these is adorable and irresistable. If you've seen and loved one, you will definitely love the other.
While visiting his hometown, junior high school student Michishio Nagasumi's life was changed forever when he nearly drowned. Though he was saved by a mermaid named San, there’s a catch -- her family is part of a merfolk mafia, and they abide by a strict rule: If a mermaid is discovered by a man, either he or the mermaid must die. That is, unless the man marries into the family! Faced with such a decision, Nagasumi can only oblige their customs and become a "happy" newlywed. Now, with a new school year around the corner, Nagasumi must find a way to deal with his new bride, keep her true nature a secret, and most importantly, escape inevitable death at the hands of San's over-protective father’s gang!
If you enjoyed the humorous circumstances and romantic moments of Karin, then Seto no Hanayome should be right in line with your taste. You'll see the same sweet moments interspersed within a random mix of everyday worries and out of the ordinary events. These two series even share the inclusion of a few very rare serious and dark moments which give both series a bit more depth than they might otherwise have.
The story of a man taking care of someone else's secret and helping them is present in both these animes. Both the main characters promise to keep their partner's secret even at the cost of their life and evetually develop feelings for them.
Yano Motoharu is the most popular guy in class, the school’s basketball ace, and highly charismatic to boot! No wonder Nanami Takahashi can’t resist falling in love with him. When Yano returns Nana’s feelings, things seem too good to be true and the two begin a relationship; but Yano has a contradictory personality which confuses Nana most of the time. On top of that, tragic events in Yano’s past won’t stop haunting their relationship. Unable to halt their passionate feelings, are Yano and Nana heading for disaster or can they save each other from irreparable hurt?
Both Bokura ga Ita and Karin are about high school loves, and develop well. The depth of the love in each series is touching, as are the obstacles placed in the characters' paths. If you liked one you would definitely like the other.
