Both Melancholy of Haruhi-chan and Ayumayu Theater deserve two tags above anything else: Random and Parody. They are both shows about practically nothing, with chibified characters and parodies from certain series. They are both quick, lighthearted and fun watches.

Both are short web series featuring chibi versions of the characters from their anime. Join the characters from each series as they go on their very random and often parody filled adventures. Similar animation, similar humour. Check one out if you liked the other. You should probably watch their relating series first though.

Petit Eva ~Evangelion@School~

Petit Eva ~Evangelion@School~

Evangelion pilots Shinji, Asuka and Rei, plus Eva Unit 01 and the rest of the gang continue their adventures at a not-so-normal school in Tokyo-3. From passing notes to sleeping or cleaning the classroom, or from ghosts, Angels, meteorites, and hole digging, the gang’s lives are full of random, fun and entertaining events. Just don’t let Principal Ikari or Misato Sensei catch you goofing off or napping in class, or you’ll be in trouble!

I can't think of a better recommendation for Haruhi-chan than Petit Eva. They're both short parody web series featuring chibi versions of the characters from their anime (cgi too!). They're both school related and quite random. If you're a fan of one, you'll no doubt enjoy the other.

Chibi characters? Check. Short episodes? Check. Random situations? Check. Barely funny humor? Pretty much a check for both as well. These shows are pretty similar, but I'd recommend sticking to the main series.

Damekko Doubutsu

Uruno, a failure of a wolf, is currently traveling to find himself a new place to call home; but upon chancing across a rabbit, he attacks it only to realize that this particular rabbit is stronger than any predator! Soon afterwards he discovers that this entire forest he has come across is home to similar 'useless animals' that are atypical of their species. He decides to stick around when he meets his love interest in the form of a clumsy cheetah, and with his new friends, he meets the rest of the animals in the forest, causing much hijinx and fun in the process!

Silly, sensless and short, three great things about both of these shows.

Although they are just a fun bit of fluff, Haruhi-chan and Useless Animals are a great way to waste a few minutes a day and not have to keep up with a complex storyline. I think fans of one show will love the frivolity of the other :)

Lucky Star

Lucky Star

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.

"Hey you got lucky star in my Haruhi."

Haruhi-chan is like A mix between the Haruhi we all know and love, and the complete silly, randomness of Lucky Star. If you enjoyed either you should deffinetly pick up the other. Both poke fun at the orginal and are just plain fun to watch.

Although, I do reccomend watching the Orginal Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi before watching either Lucky star or Haruhi-chan.
