In present day Japan, the life of a school girl is never dull. The easily-bored Konata never finds time to study because of her otaku habits, which frustrates hard-working Kagami to no end. On the other hand, laid-back Tsukasa always manages to go with the flow, while Miyuki is concerned with keeping her status as resident know-it-all. Join these four girls as they muse and meander their way through everyday events such as eating chocolate cones, doing homework, gaming, and trips to the beach galore.
If you liked Lucky Star or Daily Lives of High School Boys you'd like the other because both use the same humor, are slice of life, and focus on a single-gender group of friends. You're guarenteed to get a laugh out of either.
These shows are a perfect match for each other. They are similar in every way with the exception of the moe art style of Lucky Star.
They are almost exactly alike, but in Lucky Star, Konata is the only Otaku. Daily Lives of High School Boys is loaded with male Konata clones XD
Take Lucky Star, divide the number of episodes by half, replace female main characters with male characters, add boy-specific humor... This is 'Daily Lives of High School Boys'!
Once a popular all girls' school, Ousai Private Academy is now co-ed due to declining birth rates. Takatoshi Tsuda, a boy newly attending Ousai solely because of the proximity to his house, is quickly forced to become the student council vice president and male representative of the school by president Shino Amakusa. Now looked upon as nothing more than a filthy pig by his female peers, Takatoshi must cope with learning about a whole new side of the opposite gender, hearing plenty of dirty sex and period jokes along the way!
While lucky star parodies other anime, SYD parodies itself... a lot. SYD is a little more perverted, but the jokes are just as random.
If you liked one, you will probably like the other.
Both Lucky Star and Seitokai Yakuindomo are life parodies about high school life. Lucky Star involves only girls and goes more in-depth into the personal life of the characters where Seitokai Yakuindomo I based almost exclusively on the school life of the student council.
They are both fantastic comedies with a little ecchi thrown in the mix (more like sexual content in Seitokai Yakuindomo)
They are both hilarious and I definitely recommend them both.
Just be warned that Seitokai Yakuindomo is very much based around sexual jokes and awkward misunderstandings.
If you liked Lucky Star or SY you will also enjoy the other.
They are very similiar exept SY jokes are very perverted and LS are more mild humored.
But they are but hilarious and definetly worth the watch :D
Both are parodies/comedy and school life anime. the characters are similar and the humour in both are quite close to one another. Both are great anime.
Tatsuhiro Sato is a university dropout and a "hikikomori" – a person suffering from social withdrawal. To Sato’s dismay, his self-imposed exile from the world is rudely interrupted when a mysterious girl knocks on his door. She has charged herself with the task of curing Sato of his hikikimori ways! Now, as new problems ranging from hentai games to internet suicide spring up, can Sato manage to overcome his hermit-like ways, or will the imaginary N.H.K conspiracy force him to remain a hikikomori forever?
Welcome to the NHK! is different than Lucky Star when it comes to style, but it is about problems existing in modern Japan. Not to mention that these problems are shown in both series. Lucky Star makes fun of them, while NHK is more serious and dramatic (some scenes look like comedy, but you may not feel like laughing).
Lucky Star is a pure blooded comedy, while Welcome to the NHK is actually half-comedic, and half-serious. However, both anime provide excellent laughs with tons of references to other anime, games, and habits of mainly otaku Japanese people.
Both of these shows focus around a piece of Japanese culture that someone just beginning to watch anime (if they aren't familiar with Japanese culture) would likely not understand completely. Although both of these series contain a lot of comedy, Lucky Star would be the lighter of the two.
At first glance Lucky Star and Welcome to the NHK may seem like polar opposites. One is a lighthearted comedic parody while the other is a relatively dark satire. However, the similarity is its attempt to convey the inner workings of the complex world of otaku culture. These animes should be watched as a pair so that one sees both the "light" and "dark" side of the culture many of us hold dear.
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!
Excel Saga is actually a very hyper anime and thus very different from Lucky Star! Yet Lucky Star mainly relies upon the fact that it parodies a lot of other anime, which is the same thing Excel Saga does (though much more extravagantly). The gags are easier to understand in Excel Saga, though, as it mainly makes fun of genres and doesn't reference the anime itself as much as Lucky Star does.
They both make references of other anime and pop culture, are hilarious because everything almost doesn't make sense, and have main characters which are half crazy.
Both animes are great parodies, with excel saga being the crazier one, though it is safe to say lucky star is pretty out there, it is very mundane compared to excel saga. I can safely say that if you liked excel saga, you will like lucky star (unless you don't actually like anime.)
Yuno is a high school student who dreams of becoming a famous artist; and after being admitted at Yamabuki High School of Arts, she is one step closer to her dream. Yuno must move to an apartment complex near the school, and there, in Hidamari-so, she meets three new friends: Miyako, a very active person who will do anything to get her hands on something to eat; Hiro, an upperclassman who is obsessed with weight gain; and Sae, the oldest of the bunch and also a tomboy. From wild cosplaying teachers to bizarre school myths, Yuno and friends enjoy fun times and crazy days at Yamabuki High!
Lucky Star and Hidamari Sketch definitely have the same style in comedy and character personalities. They're very subtle in the art, and events are not dramatic at all. Both anime are about a select number of girls growing up, and their take on life. These two titles are fun in a "perky" sense, and they both have energetic openings.
Lucky Star is really slowpaced compared to most other anime in this style and while the artstyle in Hidamari is pretty wild and fast, the anime itself is still pretty slowpaced like Lucky Star.
Which is why I think that if you liked one of these two schoolgirl slice-of-life comedy anime, you should try the other.
Fans of either Hidamari Sketch or Lucky star will likely enjoy the other. Both anime feature stories centering around the day-to-day lives of a group of school-age girls. Both do well at making routine, everyday situations (and the character's reactions to them) entertaining by presenting them in a humorous way that the viewer can identify with. They are also both visually stunning, but in different ways.
