Sana and Mikan are very similar. They both speak their minds and always seem right. They're both energetic protagonists who have a problem with the school's "devil".


Kodomo no Omocha has superb 'laugh out loud' (sometimes eccentric) comedy backed up by a lovable main character; luckily, so does Gakuen Alice. The comedy elements are the same, but things do get more dramatic. Not to mention, both male protagonists are aloof. If you like one, you'll definitely enjoy the other.


Kodomo no Omocha & Gakuen Alice are quite similar in many ways. The main character (Sana in KnO & Mikan in GA) is a super-hyper little girl who's maybe a little dumb at times, but still seems to make friends with everyone. Enter the troubled boy (Hayama in KnO & Natsume in GA). Girl & boy start out mortal enemies, but somehow end up being the only ones who can really understand each other. Girl breaks through boy's tough shell, and they live happily ever after... well, not quite. Like most school couples, they seem to have a hard time realizing their own feelings. Troubles abound, untrustworthy teachers interfere, and confusions about "who likes who" arise. Kodomo no Omocha is quite a bit longer than Gakuen Alice, so there are more twists and turns. But the heart of the stories are very similar, so if you liked Kodomo no Omocha, you should definitely check out Gakuen Alice.


Kodocha and Gauken Alice both have a hyperactive young girl and show her daily school life full of drama and excitement. Also there is the whole love element between the main character and the "bad boy" character. Both series are very cute and fun to watch.


Both of these anime's are about a young girl and her school life. The ups, the downs, and everything else inbetween. While Gakuen alice does contain more fantasy themes, the main character of both Anime's is hyper almost every moment of the day. If you like one, you will most definately love the other.


Kodocha is like Alice in a more realistic way, and Alice is like Kodocha with super powers. Apart from the fantasy aspect, the anime are extremely similar in their characters. Sana and Mikan, the protagonists, are exactly alike and interact with the same kind of people. If you have seen one of the anime, you will most certainly enjoy the other.


It's impossible not to watch Mikan from "Gakuen Alice" and not be reminded of the talkative, high-energy protagonist from "Kodocha." That being said, people who loved Sana's guts and spontaneity will definitely identify with Mikan, and enjoy watching her.


Child's Toy and Gakuen Alice feature pretty much the exact same protagonist and antagonist, though they come by different names. That aside, both are extraordinarily well-written and interesting animes: a young girl changes the hearts of her classmates with nothing but an obsessively optomistic, loud, obnoxious, and annoying personality. Child's Toy is about a regular school with a child star, and Alice is about a magical school. So if you're wondering what it would be like it Sana had magical powers, or if Mikan didn't, check the other one out right away.


While both anime plots are centered around children, the protagonists frequently display attributes of maturity that enable the conflicts and romantic complexities in both stories to be more identifiable and real. Both series are filled with enjoyable comedic moments as both heroines try to get through school life while having to deal with complicated boys with stubborn attitudes!


In gakuen alice the main charater Mikyu is trying to become friends with this guy just Like THE GIRL IN Kodomo no Omocha. and the guy there tying to become friends with are both bullys


Well the main lovers pair is basicly the same setting in both animes. "Overly Hyperactive way too cheerful girl" meets "gloomy dark and scary leader of deliquents, that is actually a kind person holding dark secret". They fight at the beginnig, than they start being friends and eventually start falling for each other. And they are all just kids.


the main characters are alike and most episodes are funny.how the anime is drawn is also alike except the plot of course


Sana and Mikan are very similar to eachother in the fact that they are very energetic, speak their minds, and are messed with by their schools "bad boy"

Kirarin Revolution

Kirarin Revolution

During a sunny afternoon, Kirarin spots a helpless turtle stuck in a tree. Although Kirarin's mind is always preoccupied with food, she doesn't think twice before saving it; and after the successful rescue, she meets up with the turtle's owner who happens to be a cutie! The guy's name is Seiji and he is actually a famous star! Unfortunately, Seiji's best friend and partner, Hiroto, intrudes on her fantasies claiming that she'd never reach the level of Seiji, and that she should stay away from him. Hiroto's words don't deter her, however; and instead, Kirarin decides to be with Seiji by entering the idol world! However, becoming an idol isn't all fun and games, it's fierce competition, hard work, and filled with rivals!

The glamour and excitement of the entertainment business is the predominant theme in both these anime. Follow the lives of Sana and Kirari as they both try to rise amoungst the competitive ranks of stardom while also trying to balance their everyday lives. Freindship, romance, rumours, competition and humour are all combined with both girls persevering to overcome all obstacles.


Both series invove child stars. Sana and Kirarin who are in the entertainment buisness. They are both filled with crazy moments and just make no sense and is funny. Sana has Babbit in her show while Kirarin relys on her pet cat named Naa san! Kirarin is an exciting anime that follows the path of stardom just like Kodocha does. You will meet rivals, managers, drama, love scenes and much more! 


their similar because both main characters are idols and both their moms left them at a very young age but for diferent reasons =3


In both Kodocha and Kirarin, Kirarin and Sana are both Idols in the making. They both have a large feel of shoujo to them and have the romance and everyday life for an idol thrown in. Both are great series to watch.

Great Teacher Onizuka

Great Teacher Onizuka

With a history of leading a motorcycle gang and getting bad grades in school, why would 22 year old Onizuka ever want to become a teacher? Is it to educate young minds or spread the joy of education? Sure, if it involves being able to look up high school girls' skirts! Watch as this would-be educator uses his own life lessons and unconstituted methods as a means to control a delinquent class of students -- students who certainly aren't as happy to have him as a teacher as he is happy to be teaching...

Kodocha and GTO are both really funny school kids genre animes. While I think Sana-chan may have been a funnier and spunkier (is that a word? =p) main character than Onizuka, Onizuka is an awesome teacher. Really, who wouldn't want him as their homeroom teacher? =)
Kodocha is a very funny show. If you liked the humor in GTO, you will probably like the humor in this. It's also school oriented and has themes of odd relationships.

Both Great Teacher Onizuka and Kodomo no Omocha primarily take place in a school setting. While many anime series also take place in school settings, these two stand out in my mind because they're very different from the rest, though for different reasons. Both series have a heavy comedic influence while simultaneously having serious overtones that become more prominent as the series progresses. You won't find much similarity between Sana and Eikichi, and the plots of the two series aren't similar either, but there is enough in common for me to reverse recommend them.

If you can appreciate the intense story surrounded by a high dosage of comedy in one series, you might find yourself drawn to the other one.

Excel Saga

Excel Saga

F City, F Prefecture: the battleground where good and evil have finally chosen to decide once and for all who will rule the world…or at least that's the general idea! Neither side seems up for the task, as surviving the brutality of everyday life is enough of a chore. On the side of evil is the organization of Across, its only member the loudmouthed and abrasive Excel who struggles just to put food in her stomach; on the side of good, three disenfranchised, unemployed bachelors whose only pursuit in life is romance. Add in alien invasions, jungle warfare, and Mexican immigrant laborers to Japan, and this war doesn't seem likely to be ending soon!

Kodocha and Excel are both anime on crystal meth, featuring tons of ultra-fast talking, bizzare madcap action and plenty of exaggerated manga facial expressions. Excel is a big deliberate parody of anime, and Kodocha is just... Kodocha. Those liking their anime comedies with a side of extra craziness should watch both.

It's hard not to notice the similarities between the two heroines: rambunctious, motor-mouthed balls of energy that keep everyone else on their back heels. Both shows have a similarly bizarre sense of humor and manic pace, though Kodocha eventually branches out to drama while Excel Saga is happy to remain an amped-up crack-fest throughout.

Kodocha and Full Moon are cute, romantic stories about one girl chasing her dreams.  Both contain elements of stardom, unrequited love, and melodrama.  Most importantly, each show explores the idea of very young (we're talking elementary school) girls in love.   Kodocha's Sana and Full Moon's Mitsuki are very strong protagonists, because they are easily likable: both are hardworking, passionate, and neither girl lets fame go to her head.


KnO and FMoS are both packed with comedy, romance, and drama - but they will also entertain you and astonish you on many different levels. You won't forget them because they leave a mark on your memory, due to their unusual story twists and perfect conclusions.
