Moyashimon is a unique anime, and I found its mix of interesting, flawed characters, put in bizzare and amusing situations, a great recipe for some hilarious comedy. It's from this very general take that I recommend the Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi, as both of these anime are very unique and distinguished. Oh, and they both have supernatural aspects...

True Tears

True Tears

Shinichiro Nakagami is an everyday high school student, with the exception of having his beautiful and athletic childhood friend Hiromi Yuasa living in his household after the death of her parents. Unfortunately, their relationship is cold at best - Shinichiro can tell that she is suffering, but she acts coldly and distant from her foster family and so he is unable to help ease her sadness. His family is also forcing him to practice a traditional Japanese dance that does not interest him, adding to his frustration. On top of that, he is cursed to misfortune by another girl in school, the eccentric Noe Isurugi. Shinichiro juggles all of these problems on a day-to-day basis as he learns about love and the sadness of those around him.

An odd recommendation at first, but forget the 'gimmick' of Moyashimon, the bacteria, and what you see would be an interesting look on human emotions, expectations and future. The realism with which it is done isn't far off from the emotional exploration that is True Tears.

If it was the bacteria you fancied in Moyashimon or the tears in TT then, although still worth a try, don't pay much attention to this recommendation.

Nodame Cantabile

Nodame Cantabile

The studious and uptight Chiaki is well-known as the top pianist of his school, and dreams of becoming a world-class conductor like his idol, Viera; but his fear of flying (which makes studying abroad impossible) combined with a recent break-up and dismissal from his piano instructor causes that future to seem both bleak and unlikely. After collapsing outside of his apartment, drunk, Chiaki inadvertently meets a young woman named Nodame who, while quite talented at the piano, is unclean, clumsy, and haphazard. Despite being almost polar opposites, the two begin to grow closer and work, together, to overcome the obstacles in their careers.

While both anime are a specialized comedic twist on the slice-of-life genre, they both prove to be very unique and can be appealing even to those who may not find anime with a school setting very interesting. At the same time, if you're a university student or can appreciate aspects of college life these series may appeal to you, as they both take place in/around a college.

The personalities found in both Moyashimon and Nodame Cantabile are a bit over the top, but are still very unique. Each of the cast characters are hard-working (most of the time) and have incredible talents that you don't find in most students. While the comedy is mostly slap-stick and a bit over the top, both are semi-educational in that Moyashimon and Nodame feature a plot around microbiology and classical music, respectively.

In other words, if you like anime that teaches you a little something new while focusing a funny cast with unique talents, both shows should strike the nail on the head.

Detroit Metal City

Detroit Metal City

Negishi Souichi always dreamed of joining a trendy pop band, so that he could perform music like that of his idol, Kahimi Karie. In order to realize his dream, he decided to leave the country side and his loving parents to study in Tokyo. And after graduating, he does manage to join a band... but not the kind he was expecting! As lead singer of the death metal band Detroit Metal City, under the stage name Krauser II, he is made to perform loud songs filled with obscene lyrics - a far cry from the songs he used to write in school. But despite the fact that Negishi hates DMC's music, the Krauser side of him will do anything to put on a good show for his fans... even if it means making Negishi's life a misery!

Do you think i'm insane? - Yes! Both animes in some cases have a very similar humor. The peaceful life of the main character of the DMC is quite a life of Moyashimon heroes. And also the producer of the DMC's band... she is quite similar to Moyashimon woman-teacher, but the first has no manners...

Moyashimon and Kamichu! are two of my favorite comedy/slice-of-life series. They're light-hearted, silly, easy to watch, and have much more unique characters and situations than most shows in the genre. Both are about a character that can see and do things that others cannot, and how they deal with that power.
