When the gothic-lolita Marika opened her eyes on the train one day, she found herself in a bizarre and whimsical town in an unknown world. Quickly meeting the famous scientist Galileo Galilei, Marika is introduced to science in a whole new way. The town, Galihabara, is home to a number of notable inventors and tinkerers including Newton, Edison, Marie Curie and even Leonardo da Vinci! However, these ordinary figures of history are anything but - from MCs to ramen shop owners, each scientist is definitely unique in their own way. Alongside her magical stuffed animal Pet, Marika and Galileo explore Galihabara, learning important lessons along the way!
In a time filled with wars, environmental concerns and issues, there lives a gaggle of beautiful boys that are the personification of the world's countries. Japan, England, France, Finland, Germany and the rest of the boys attend the World Conference and tackle issues like global warming with a heavy dose of fun. Through multiple world wars the gang will traverse deserts, build mecha U-boats and solve the world's problems together!
While Hetalia is a bit too foo foo for me and Marie and Gali exudes style similar to Jing, I believe this is a good recommendation. Both have heavy historical elements in a very bizarre setting, with plenty of lighthearted comedy and strangeness.
Both of these shows manage to be clever and stupid with their humour. Hetalia is a comedy about history, while Marie & Gali is about physics, but both of them present a novel and witty take on what you've read in your school textbooks. If you liked one, there's a fair old chance you might just enjoy the other.
Both shows are parodies of history, have short episodes, and will make you laugh at least once. Check out one if you liked the other.
Even though Hetalia concentrates on world history and Marie & Gali deal with science (especially with physics), both are parodies that demonstrate historical/scientific facts with a humor of cleverness and stupidity that makes both shows interesting and hilarious to watch, while pretty much getting a free quick review of world history and physics. Also, both shows consist of 5 minute long episodes, making them all the more similar. If you enjoy one of them, you will very much enjoy the other!
The students of the Geijutsuka Art Design Class study all the various fields of art, from sketching and painting to graphic design and photography. While the mischievous Noda is always thinking up new ways to have fun with her partner in crime - tomboy Tomokane - the ditzy Kisaragi is content with doodling cats in her sketchbook. With Namiko attempting (and failing) to keep the energetic duo in line, the quiet and mysterious Kyoujyu seems happy to observe the odd behavior of her classmates. Whether they are transforming a congealed lump of paint into a sculpture of a pudding, playing ‘color tag’, or making thought collages, the gang live their life to the max through both their friendships and their art.
Marie & Gali and GA each found a way to educate their audience in the silliest (and most unexpectedly entertaining) way possible. One doesn't expect to learn about art history or Archimedes' screw in an anime (or to actually enjoy it). Both are stylish and adorable.
Join the king of thieves Jing and his plumed partner Kir as they seek out the greatest treasures in the world - and steal them. From desert bandit fortresses to the innermost sanctums of kings and queens, if there's a magnificent treasure to be had, you can be sure Jing has his eyes (and later his hands) on it.
In a normal neighborhood in a normal city, a young maid arrives from the maid village to help out a young unnamed girl. But this battery-operated being is no ordinary maid! Not only can she remove her head and turn her body into glue (amongst other things), Cheko-chan also has the wackiest of friends. From Mizore, the edible snow spirit from the north, to Nachiko, a large squid who likes to change faces, to Kanato the Yankee, the bully who is the strongest of them all, it seems the craziness has just begun in the life of a once typical high school student.
short episodes of pure crazyness. Fortunatly, Marie & gali is not as random as pugyuru, since a second pugyuru would cause reality to implode. No, Marie and glai is more like if time squad was crossed with pugyuru, so it's diluted pugyuru.
The relationship between servant and master has always been strained, but it’s even worse when the staff has to put up with their employer’s eccentricities. From the fearsome Masamune Date with his fetish for eye patches to the super-moe Motochika who has his employees swooning over him like a fanclub, the lords are having the time of their lives, while their servants certainly have their work cut out for them. With the confused Shingen believing he’s fallen for his rival, Nobunaga agreeing to every bizarre battle tactic suggested to him, and Masamune more interested in accessorising his horse than discussing war, it seems that Feudal Japan is much livelier than the history books make out.
