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.

Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (2009)

Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (2009)

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!

I'd recommend this not just because it's made by the same company but because both animes are "slices of life" and both feature small hints of other animes, such as where in Lucky Star where the main character Konata dresses up as Haruhi Suzumiya and performs, along with the other characters who also dress up as characters from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya.

Either way, both are excellent animes and I'd definitely recommend to watch either one after the other.


Two animes created by one studio and two main characters - Konata and Haruhi - have the same seiyuu.

Also they're both are comedies (and kinda funny) and about high school students. And I have to admit, that they connect with each other - Konata is a big fan of Haruhi. Plus they have similar humor.

So It's the reasons why you would like both 'Lucky Star' and 'Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya'


While the shows aren't exactly similar, both share a few qualities that definitely enhance the experience of watching both.Lucky Star is a much more comedic anime, and has great pace and timing. Lucky Star is full of references to other anime, from Kanon to The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzimiya and tons of others inbetween. Watching these other shows definetly enhances what the audience will get from Lucky Star, but similarly, watching Lucky Star will enhance those other anime as well!That said, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzimiya isn't to be taken as lightly as Lucky Star. It's a more serious show with more serious moments in it. Similarly, don't take Lucky Star as serious as you might Melancholy. They're different shows in different genres after all. They're just really good together.


  • OVA (1 ep x 23 min)

Everyday life may be full of mundane occurrences, but hidden amongst the banality, you can always find something fun to brighten your day. While schoolgirl Mio attempts to cheer up Yuuko after her horrific test score, Nano desperately tries in vain to get the stubborn Hakase to take her medicine. No matter the situation, these innocent girls can make the most of every situation, even by doing cartwheels at a deserted railway station.

The 4 koma style comedy was very similar between these two. Except lucky stars execution was done much better


Both anime are boring escapist slice of fife shows where nothing even remotely amusing ever happens.


I think this is a good anime and I think Lucy star fans will love it too. They both have comedy and slice of life. 



Yui, Yukari and Yuzuko have just entered high school, eager to have a great time. They quickly become the sole members of the Data Processing Club, using the computers frequently to look up information and find interesting videos. Whether they're debating the merits of sauce on curry bread, trying to determine how some women manage to have huge breasts or dealing with the sweltering heat, these three friends will also manage to have fun in the process.

It has a similair feel to it. Both envolve a group of friends in school. There's not much of otaku culture but the slice of life and comedy is prevelent. Oppai does come up frequently. Just trust me you will love it.


Both shows are mainly focused aruond the random events of a small group of school girls and their happenings in day to day life. Whilst lucky star is a bit more focused on Otaku culture and skips from event to event rather quickly, Yuyushiki is a little more slow paced in that the episode isn't split into multiple segmants and outs more focus onto the characters themselves. The two shows are really just based on character interaction and random events, from luck stars random scene hopping of one topic to the next to Yuyusiki's random brought about club discussions they both offer a light comedy which is to be enjoyed fan of school life anime. (though Yuyushiki is also quite club based).


Neither show has much of a plot to speak of. Both shows are quirky and random with a super cute drawing style. These shows are both based around a group of friends who talk about nonsensical, off-topic things and have fun when they're together.

Ai Mai Mii

Ai Mai Mii
  • TV (13 eps x 3 min)
  • 2013

Ai, Mai and Mii are three would-be manga artists who can't seem to stay out of trouble, let alone complete a project! Whether they're having a one-off encounter with the forest dweller Yamu, becoming human sprinklers, entering manga battles or entering a doujinshi fair, the trio have fun one day at a time.

Two comedy titles related to otaku culture and slice of life antics - Lucky Star is easily the more popular of the two, as Ai Mai Mii is pretty horrendous on all levels. That being said, I believe fans of one would appreciate the other, especially in the AMM->LS direction.


Both of these anime are about high school girls and have a similar humor style. Making quick, random jokes in random settings is the odd type of humor both of these shows share.



Naota Nanbada is a boring young boy who leads a boring life in a boring town. His older brother has left for America, and the closest he comes to any excitement is when his deadbeat dad has too much sake. But things change one day when a bizarre girl zooms up to him on a scooter and smacks him in the face with her guitar. What's more, once Naoto returns home he discovers that this strange woman has arrived ahead of him and moved in! Not only does she constantly engage in perverted activities with Naota's father and flirt with the young man himself, but she also claims to be an alien who is searching for the ‘Pirate King.' Now, Naota must learn to live with this new intruder, deal with an odd government agent who sports exceptionally large eyebrows and the mysterious Medical Mechanica, and come to terms with the fact that there are a variety of robots and weapons emerging out of his head - amongst other things. Perhaps boring wasn't so bad after all...

Both series have an extremely crazy side and some of the episodes on both these anime make absolutely no sense at all they are both very fast paced, and are the type where if you get a little lost half way though an episode chances are you wont pick it back up again


Both anime are completely ramnomnes, crazy, and makes absolutly no sence for common people :)

Both are something for people, who would like to play Gnome in world of Warcraft :D
