Synopsis:

Rei, Go, Kiyoshi, Jin and Dai (collectively known as Kimengumi) are typical students who attend class each day – but the last thing they want to do is study and learn. From baseball tournaments to play rehearsals, there’s never a dull day to be found; and although the men of the Kimengumi aren’t the sharpest tools in the shed, their unexpected reactions and super-deformed transformations save them from any of the incredible situations they get themselves into. Going shopping and removing snow from the garden have never been this complicated!

Azumanga Daioh

Azumanga Daioh

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!

Azumanga Daioh and Kimengumi share a nice variety of caracters that all have their particularities, often quite unusual. This gives both of these anime a similar alchemy of hyperactive, cute and dumb characters.

Genshiken

Genshiken

Ever wanted to join an anime club but felt its geekiness would hurt your reputation? Sasahara feels your pain. Genshiken, the Society for the Study of Modern Visual Culture, is an organization of college otaku obsessed with anime, manga and video games. Their daily activities include holding impromptu cosplay photo shoots, braving the crowds and avoiding injury at doujinshi conventions, and tolerating harassment by Saki, a girl irked by her boyfriend's otaku-ness! It's a perfect match for Sasahara's interests, so why is it so difficult for him to join?

Both Kimengumi and Genshiken show the daily life of a not quite ordinary group of boys, that has unusual ineterests in order to keep busy and have fun, in a way that is not really socially valued.

Ippatsu Kikimusume

Ippatsu Kikimusume
  • TV (16 eps x 4 min)
  • 1999

Kunyan is a beautiful young woman, living alone in her one-bedroom apartment. However, she always seems to find her way into the most unpredictable and narrowly escapable situations that require quick, yet crude thinking and unimaginable body strength and flexibility. Although taking a bath or cooking crab in a steaming pot might seem like a safe and enjoyable activity, Kunyan seems to find a way into some sort of predicament, losing most of her clothes in the process.

Although kikimusume and Kimengumi are quite diferent from the content, both of these series give good examples of how to make a situation even more complicated than it already was, and therefore have a somewhat similar kind of humor despise the focus of Ippatsu Kikimusume on ecchi.

School Rumble

Tenma Tsukamoto is young, bright, and smitten with the school hottie Oji Karasuma. She's desperate for his attention, which is unfortunate considering he barely gives her the time of day!

Both School Rumble and Kimengumi have this kind of chaotic humor in their situations that makes them hilarious, with just enough nonsense and amusinganimations to make them seem totally crasy, yet without losing track of reality.

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya

The eccentric Suzumiya Haruhi wants nothing more than to meet aliens, time travelers and espers… but she’ll have to settle for the everyday Kyon instead! Along with the mysterious Itsuki and the vacant Mikuru, the duo forms the SOS Brigade – a club whose mission is to discover the mysteries of the world. Armed with a razor sharp wit and a skill for manipulation, Haruhi will stop at nothing to have fun at all costs, even at the expense of Mikuru’s dignity!

Kimengumi and the melancholy of Hahuri Suzumiya both show the most unexpected and crasy plans made by students to keep life interesting despite the obligations of scholarship. Kimengumi has much older graphics and has an oldschool feel to it, but both series convey the same ground idea.
