Once upon a time, a creature named Enka tried to destroy everything on Earth. It was eventually slain by humans; but before dying Enka proclaimed that one day its child would return to the planet, spreading fear and despair throughout all humanity. Now, thousands of years later, DNA tests have identified six 'children of Enka'. Only one of them is dangerous, but nobody knows which one (and killing them all would be mean!) Instead, 'Operation Cozy Family' is born! Normal human Ouka Midarezaki is forced into marrying Kyouka, one of the children of Enka; and together they play the roles of 'father' and 'mother' for the other children. But will family bonding and love really be enough to prevent the destruction of the planet?
Haré and his mother live peacefully in the jungle, until one day the boy is overtaken by a omnipotent shadow. Later, he awakens to find Guu, a strange girl with even stranger abilities - notably, the ability to switch from a cute, lovable Guu, to a menacing delinquent who eats everything. Now Haré must live with Guu, and lead a normal life, despite her oddities.
Crazy animes with random morals interspersed? Yep. Hare+guu's morals aren't as forced as the Preachy Kyoka from KKN, but they are still just as odly placed.
Another similarity is in that the more you think about both of these shows, the less sence they make. On one hand you have a girl with a world in her stomache, living in a jungle that would probably be french based (because it's most likely africa) and yet it is very Japanese, even though the japanese had no influence on africa or any jungle in particular. On the other hand you have a secret agent marying a catgirl and raising 3 humans, two animals and a robot, while helping out the strangest of characters
She’s smart, talented, and the newest teacher at Momotsuki Academy; but she’s also… 11 years old?! Named Becky Miyamoto, this pint-sized MIT prodigy wants nothing more than to be a respectable educator, but all her students do is treat her like an adorable child! With space aliens, a class full of stereotypes (and one girl who is normal!), and a quick temper standing in her way, Becky will try her best to shape the eager young minds of tomorrow before she hits puberty!
Being the most random anime of Spring 2008, Kyouran Kazoku Nikki does remind of PPD a great deal. But, they\'re still pretty different. PPD is random, yes, but its randomness is based on parodies and quotes (some of which can\'t even be recognized by Western viewers). KKN\'s randomness, on the other hand, is based on unique characters and their interactions - after all, no one knows how will the talking lion act if his mother is a cat-eared loli, right? Still, the spirit of these series is pretty similar, so you should watch both of them if you like sudden puns and to think \"What the heck did I just see?\".
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!
An unassuming guy gets into a strange situation, crazy things happen, he gets forcibly married to a half-animal girl, some more crazy things happen, there's a jellyfish, and somehow everyone deals with all this crazyness and somehow no one laughs at just how funny it all is.
In the future, select humans have begun to evolve and acquire special ESP powers – powers that the rest of the populace fear and detest. While some ESPers are harmless, others desire to use their powers for their own personal gain. In order to suppress this threat, identify new ESPers and protect those with powers from the public, the B.A.B.E.L. organization is founded. At its helm are three ten-year-old ESPers: Kaoru, Aoi and Shiho. Together, they will put a stop to crime and attempt to gain the trust of the public; but can their guardian, Kouichi Minamoto, manage to help the girls mature enough so their selfish actions will stop hurting the world around them?
paranormal craziness, whacky characters and the beating of the sole normal guy is what both of these shows are about.
Most of the shows are spent on one episode filler and rarely have a large story arc, but still have a plot. Though KKN is about random assorted characters and abilities (maybe saving the world.) ZKN is about nothing but ESPers, (read magical girl)
