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.
Kurata Sana has a very eventful life. Though she’s only in the 5th grade, she’s the star of a popular TV Show called “Child’s Toy”. She lives with her eccentric mother and her boyfriend aka manager aka pimp, and faces hell at school. Her archenemy, Hayama Akito, turns the classroom into chaos each day, but Sana is finally ready to put her foot down! Can she defeat Akito and take control of her class? And more importantly, how will she deal with the secrets she finds about him?
From two completely different decades, Kodomocha and Minami may look very different on the surface, but their innards share much humour. Plenty of wtf moments in both surround some more serious drama in some seriously crazy families. If you have an open mind and enjoy a good giggle, both of these shows are worth a look.
Both series really certain around a female lead and her interactions with the other charactes. Each female has the kind of funny and rarely serious personality that is aimed providing amusement for the viewer making them relaxed while watching either series. Also each series main thing is that it spends most of it's time giving off a very relaxed feel and that the shows only there to provide the viewer with laughs and amusement.
Ryouta is a typical elementary school boy in class 5-2. He likes hanging out with his friends, he plays guitar on his broom instead of cleaning the classroom and he’s more interested in whose Superball bounces the highest than seeing a girl’s panties or sneaking a peek at a dirty magazine. However Ryouta also has the unfortunate luck of often being caught in the most seemingly-perverted situations at the worst possible times. Still, amidst becoming the guru of the turn-on of a collarbone, Ryouta continues to live a normal day-to-day life; that is, as normal a life as a tormented pseudo-perverted schoolboy can!
Same author, similar comedy style. That's all, but if the author of the manga thought that if you liked one you would like the other, who are you to say no.
Though the ecchi in Minami-ke is almost non-existent, the comedy in these shows are strikingly similar. The serious way they approach ridiculous situations and the character relationships are also reminiscent of each other.
Satoshi Yabe is the newest employee at Kamohashi Elementary School. Wide-eyed and enthusiastic, he’s thrilled to finally be fulfilling his dream of being a teacher – but little did Satoshi know that he’d be assigned to class 6-3, a group that houses none other than the violent and perverted Marui triplets! Between the girls trying to hook him up with the busty school nurse, dealing with the unfortunate consequences of a hamster named 'Titties' and other misadventures, Satoshi’s dream of an uneventful school life has come to an end!
Both series are about three sisters with different tempers and their random, everyday live.
However, unlike Minami-ke, Mitsudomoe is all about pervy things ^
Minami-ke and Mistsudomoe both struck me as very similiar anime when I first watched them. They have similar settings, character, plot and both are hilarious.
Sumiregawa Nenene is an author who hasn't published a book in years. However, at a book signing in Hong Kong, things go fascinatingly awry. For starters, her guides are three sisters who operate a detective agency: Maggie, Michelle, and Anita. Then there's the attacks on Nenene's life, and her only line of defense is the three sisters -- who can all use paper as weapons, tools, and even transportation. But can their powers protect Nenene from the mysterious forces that not only want her, but all the precious books of the world...?
Although Read or Die has a more unrealistic plot with detectives being able to magically manipulate paper the characters are similar to the ones in Minami-ke in which, just as in Read or Die, three sisters are trying to make a living and survive the circumstances that life presented to them.
The three distinct personalities of the three sisters in Read or Die TV really remind me of the three Minami sisters in Minami-ke.
Although they are different genres, ROD-tv has got some great slice-of-life, moments despite being action, and both appeal to the same sense of humour.
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.
Both of these shows are slice of life comedies that have a trio of girls as the main characters. While Yuyushiki features three girls in the same year at school, Minami-ke revolves around three sisters of varying age. The comedy with each is fairly similar, with a lot of random and phyical gags in both shows, although Yuyushiki is different in that it has fairly prevalent shoujo-ai themes throughout.
Both series largely follow a group of three girls, though the relationships between the girls is completely diffferent both series are enjoyable and comedic. Yuyushiki is a more classic example of school-life while Minami-ke is quite a bit more unusual following the lives of three sisters with each quite a bit of age between them.
