Meet the Minami sisters, three girls living on their own and doing their best to make it through life's little snags and adventures. Kana, the middle sister, has far more energy than common sense; Chiaki, the youngest, is more reserved, but her sharp tongue and devious mind often cause trouble for others; and Haruka, the eldest, acts like a mother to the other two, is beautiful and kind, but has a fearsome stern streak. Together, no obstacle can stand in their way, be it school, romance, or even cooking.
Ten-year-old genius Chiyo, animal-loving Sakaki, loudmouth Tomo, athletic Kagura, weight-conscious Yomi and dim-witted Osaka are six friends who share laughs, good times, and a high school homeroom. With scary (and sometimes perverted) teachers, school festivals, penguin suits and general hilarity abounding, you can be sure that there's never a dull day in the life of one of these students!
Minami-ke is about three quirky sisters, their lives at home and school, and their friends. The humour is random, the series easy-going, the plot about every-day happening: things we can all relate to. And it's brilliant. It's an anime that derives fun from the most normal of settings, and is based on girls with well developed personalities. Azumanga Daioh shares all these strengths, but features more girls, and takes random/funny to a higher degree.
I can safely say that if you enjoy Miname-ke, be sure to pick up Azumanga Daioh.
Both Azumanga Daioh and Minami-ke flaunt humorous, entirely character-centered storylines based upon randomality. While presented in differing settings, each share the same premise of mindless, light-hearted comedy, and thus the liking of one would equate the liking of the other. If you're looking to turn your brain off for a few hours and laugh, Azumanga and Minami are great compliments to one another.
They both are shows about regular daily life.
They both have a wide range of character where every character differs from the next one.
They both also have similiar quirky and low-meld sense of humor.
The characters make the series, in both instances. They take normal, every day experiences that would usually be considered dull, and turn it into something humorous. (Even if it’s something seemingly uninteresting, such as “how do you cure hiccups?” or “what skills are necessary for blowing a really big bubble, with a single piece of bubble gum?”)
The humor is very similar, the characters charming: it’s pretty much plotless, mindless comedy.
Azumanga Diaoh and Minami-ke are very similar in the sense that the whole story (in both animes) revolves around the everyday lives of the characters and teh zany situations that they get themselves into. Lots of fun to be had in both these animes :D
Azumanga and Minami-ke are both slice of life comedies with a female central cast. In both of these series (as is the case in nearly all comedies in this genre) the characters drive episodic type (mini) plots. Both series have quite the diverse cast of characters, each of which you get to know well. Azumanga has a larger central character list, while Minami-ke primarily features a 3 girl family. Nontheless you will love the Minami girls if you loved the girls from Azumanga and vice-versa. If you liked either of these series, you will definitely like the other.
They are both totally random and hilarious. They both parody SoL anime without going all the way out of reality. Both are highly re-watchable and just plain enjoyable. Plot need not apply.
While Minami-ke is a lot "calmer" than Azumanga (which is stating the obvious, almost every nonspastic show is), both shows are excellent at scoring laughs and grins. Both shows excel in their cast of characters, each one having a distinct personality and fulfilling a specific role. If you liked one of these, and are looking for something similar, but more spastic or calmer, check this one out.
Both of those Anime have similiar sense of humor and main character. Both gave us fun an very high level. There are both light and you can watch them any time. So go ahead and start watching.
Is the same random nonsense humor, it WILL make you laugh in almost every episode while enjoying the daily life routine of the characters.
If you liked one, you will like the other too.
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.
Both Minami-ke and Lucky Star possess the slice-of-life quality and are separated into several vignettes per episode. Both anime also ponder humorous and trivial questions that will leave their viewers laughing.
Both anime tell a simple "day by day" story about young gils, and how they spend their time!
It's really funny and enjoyable!
Minami-ke and Lucky Star are slice-of-life comedies based around the everyday lives of the lead girls. Both series turn the normal and usually-forgettable into topics of random hilarity and will remind you of real life situations where the smallest of questions have conjured hugely amusing discussions. These two series never take themselves too seriously, try to be overly funny, nor are they above making fun of themselves. The result is an easy-going and easier-to-enjoy collection of short plotlines where the viewer can pick up and enjoy from any episode. The humour is lighthearted but often heartwarming and reminds you that even the ordinary can be hilariously fun.
Lucky Star and Minami-Ke both revolve around young female characters who are currently attending school. With this these anime are both very episodic in nature and tend to not share much from episode to episode. Since they are both Slice-of-life anime this makes them even more in common since you experience there lives from day to day. With all the similarities, not including the storyline, it makes it hard to not enjoy one if the other was enjoyed. So if you enjoyed one then check out the other, I'm sure you will be satisfied.
Both of these anime are very easy watching series with a good dose of humour. Neither series has much in the way of plot, they are just fun slice-of life series that are brilliant if you want to relax without having to concentrate on the story. If you like one series, give the other a chance.
I would highly suggest watching one of these anime if you have seen the other because both are quite laid-back and relaxing, while also being funny at the same time.
Minami-ke and Lucky Star are similar in many aspects. The most notable of these are: un-structured story, mostly female cast, slice of life, an eccentric and odd main character, and short re-occuring jokes. Both suffer from odd beggining episodes but quickly become addictive once you get to know the characters.
Both Minami-ke and Lucky Star feature an energetic cast of characters going about life in a hilarious way, sharing the same kind of humor and structure. They don't have any absolute plot, but are rather entertaining episodic series that leave a generally upbeat and joyful impression.
Both are great slice of life animes, while they have fairly different art styles and characters, both are always fun to watch.
Ahh, the life of an elementary school student. Though Chika, Matsuri, Miu and Ana should focus on schoolwork, they’d much rather have fun instead. Whether it’s outings with 20-year-old-chain-smoker Noboe, holding each other hostage or learning to speak English with Ana’s foreign-born skills, there’s never a dull moment in the life of the girls. Join this cute quartet as they do cute (and often devious) things in cute and quirky ways!
If you liked the cuteness of Ichigo Mashimaro or Minami-ke, you'd like the other. Both are about a group of girls who, as the narrator says, "don't expect much" and go about their daily lives. They do a lot of daydreaming and setting evil plans, but look innocent at the same time.
Both of these are slice-of-life anime series with a fair amount of humour in them. Aside from that initial similarity the characters of Kana in Minami-ke and Miu in Strawberry Marshmallow are very similar in being the hyperactive characters that cause trouble. Both also focus equally on the school life and home life of the characters involved. I'd recommend watching one of these series if you liked the other.
Minami-ke and strawberry marshmallow are both comedies with annoying characters and the people who beat them. If you liked Kana, then you whould like Miu. If you liked Chika then you would like Chiaki. If you liked Mako-chan, get help.
Minami-ke and Ichigo Mashimaro are two of the same. They feature a group of girls in a Slice-of-Life comedy story, where the conversations and wackiness of the characters is the entire joy. They both go into cliche's, but at the same time stay refreshing. If you loved one of these, you don't want to miss out on the other!
Ichigo Marshmallow and Minami-ke are the same show. Except, you know, with different characters. And different situations. But everything else is the same. Atmosphere, style of humor, animation, cuteness, everything. There's no reason why anyone would like one and not the other.
Both stylistically and in theme, Minami Ke and Strawberry Marshmallow are very similar. Minami Ke is basically Starawberry Marshmallow except with a slightly older cast. Also, don't listen to the people reccomending Lucky Star, it is awful.
Both animes have the same feel, settings and humour with similiar characters and animations style.
Both are light, random and contains lots of comedy.
If you liked one, you'll like the other!
Both animes have similar characters and plots. Both are just about lazing around and don't really have a plot to them. I was surprised that they weren't made by the same person sisnce they were so similar.
Cute school girls doing cute school girl things without any real story or plot drive to speak of. With very similar main cast character archtypes of aggresive/passive/mature, you are bound to like one of you liked the other.
It's the first day of high school, and plenty of school clubs are doing their best to recruit new members. However, for ditzy Yui, none of them seem to fit the bill. However, when she accidentally signs up to join the light music club, Yui begins a hilarious adventure to become a world class guitarist! There's just one problem: she's never played the guitar before in her life! Joined by bassist Mio, drummer Ritsu and keyboardist Tsugumi, Yui and the gang will juggle their studies with buying instruments, learning how to read music and even performing in the school festival, all in the hopes of someday becoming a successful band!
Short comedy, full of moe and absurd jokes with girls as main characters? Yup, you've come to the right place. Whether it will be about 3 sisters living together (Minami-ke) or about 4 high school girls forming a band (K-on) you will defienietly spend some quality time laughing and enjoying both shows.
If you want to see girls doing funny stuff and living day after day, you'll like these animes. Every character has an unique personality and that's what make these animes so entertaining because you end up loving the characters and laughing to the continuos jokes. If you like one of these animes, make sure to check the other one.
Minami-ke and K-On are both slice of life shows about a group of girls leading their everyday (not so) ordinary lifes. Both shows have a similar sense of humor and are mostly about the interaction between the characters. Each character in these shows covers a, usually extreme, personality from the personality-spectrum.
Both series generally focus around a group of girls in Minami-ke case it's the three sisters and in K-ON! case it's a group of classmates. Each series main selling point is that they both generally try to spend their time being funny with the story rarely ever getting serious or anything like that. Each series also has a least one of the girls being a bit of a pain for the rest of the girls without the others ever coming to dislike that girl. While some of the jokes in each series are different they do generally give off the same feel and making both entertaining.
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!
Hidamari Sketch and Minami ke both share a similar kind of tamed, yet uplighting humor. What one would imagine when one mixes comedy into slice of life. While Minami ke is a little more fast paced than its counterpart, the difference is only minimal, and the similarities in humor speak louder than the differences.
Both Hidamari Sketch and Minami-ke are highly character driven slice-of-life comedies. The characters in both are well developped and grow as each series progresses. The stories are upbeat and generally leave a "warm fuzzy feeling" of comfort.
Both these anime have a very similar feel: a group of girls living without parents and a innocent and charming sense of humour. Both highly recommended for watching when you need to relax.
