Miki is a psychotic mascot, waitress and delivery girl who works at her equally as frightening mother's ramen shop. Both survivor and instigator of years of ruthless, no-holds-barred domestic violence, Miki has a capacity for destruction usually found only in people with things like "the Impaler" added to their name. Yet, she also has a kind side to her and is often found going implausible distances out of her way to rescue both proverbial and literal lost kittens, though some malignant souls might misconstrue this as merely ditching her work...
F City, F Prefecture: the battleground where good and evil have finally chosen to decide once and for all who will rule the world…or at least that's the general idea! Neither side seems up for the task, as surviving the brutality of everyday life is enough of a chore. On the side of evil is the organization of Across, its only member the loudmouthed and abrasive Excel who struggles just to put food in her stomach; on the side of good, three disenfranchised, unemployed bachelors whose only pursuit in life is romance. Add in alien invasions, jungle warfare, and Mexican immigrant laborers to Japan, and this war doesn't seem likely to be ending soon!
Both series are about absolutely nothing. If you like slapstick humor, these are the series for you. The main difference between the two is that while Muteki Kanban Musume seems to have some sort of story, Excel Saga has none and can be described as more random.
Aside from their premises, the characters (Miki and Excel from, respectively, Muteki Kanban Musume and Excel Saga) show a lot of similar characteristics.
Holy hyperactive characters! When I see Miki in action, the first character that comes to mind is Excel and vice versa. Both of these anime seem very fitting of each other in their random yet fun humor and the consistant use of slapstick comedy. Both Excel and Miki suffer from extreme attention span issues witch makes for similar situations (be it Illpalazo and his floor traps with Excel or Miki's mother pummeling her into a wall). Also, both anime seem to have a slight underlining plot, but its not really that relevant to how the show progresses.
Both series pay almost zero attention to a 'main plot'. Also, everything is random, nonsense but extremely funny. If you enjoy an anime that tries to do everything possible to be funny in a sort of violent (especially MKM) and random (especially Excel Saga) way, I recommend you watch both. Also, if you liked the comedy style in one of them, you will most likely enjoy the other.
Muteki and Excel Saga are both over-the-top, high-octane series with extreme comedic appearance changes and hard-to-follow randomness. Plenty of action accompanies both titles as well, plus some pretty abrasive and aggravating main characters. I didn't like either of these, but fans of one will probably appreciate the other.
When Kaede, a girl frustrated with her grades like any other teenager, finds a female Ninja attempting to steal her underwear, she didn't expect a friendship to be the result. And as the modern day world of ordinary high schooler Kaede collides with Ninja-in-training Shinobu, she soon comes to discover that the world of modern day Ninjas are filled with parties, picnics, and the training of the elder master Ninja yellow form changing glob: Onsokumaru!
Both Muteki Kanban Musume and Shinobuden are random comedies.
While the jokes in Shinobuden are somewhat dirty compared to Muteki Kanban Musume, both shows are somewhat of a slapstick comedy and have "over the top" behaviour for the characters.
Both series have the same format too: there are two separate segments for each episode.
Ninja Nonsense and Muteki Kanban Musume have a lot in common, except for their settings. The characters in both series are equally weird and can hardly be called characters due to what little background story we are told about them. The series focus more on slapstick humor.
If you are a sucker for crazy slapstick humor and are not too interested in actually seeing some character development, these series will be great.
While it's alluded to in the title of Ninja Nonsense, if you like mental and nearly idiotic comedy then both of these series are for you. Both have random violence and have a definite over the top feeling about them. If you liked one, then definitely check out the other!
Muteki Kanban Musume and Ninja Nonsense are both very alike in the ways of randomness and comedy. They both have two short episodes in one and both share the same mood and feel. Although, I would say that Ninja Nonsense is a bit more crazy and random than Muteki Kanban Musume!
Dimwitted Azuma Kazuma is a young man with a dream -- to create a bread worthy of the name "Japan", made by the Japanese people, for the Japanese people! With hefty bread-making skills, hands that have an uncanny warmth to help dough ferment, and will power like no other, Kazuma must put his delicious creations to the test as he struggles to become employed at the prestigious Pantasia bakery, for fame and glory! Yeast, beware... Kazuma is in the kitchen!
If you liked Muteki Kanban Musume and would like more focus on the actual food part, without losing too much slapstick and gaining some extra character development, Yakitate!! Japan would be a nice follow up. If you on the other hand like Yakitate!! Japan, but are looking for a somewhat similar concept with some more slapstick, I can recommend you Muteki Kanban Musume as well.
Both these animes center around the food industry. They are both humorous with a sarcastic portrayal of adults and competition. If you thought one was amusing, you will laugh through the other as well.
Both anime take on the food aspect of life and make it hilarious. Weather it's making bread in Yakitate Japan or noodles in Muteki Kanban Musume both are sure to make you laugh! Check one out if you liked the other.
Two hilarious shows with the delicious premise of FOOD! If you liked the competitive spirit and over-the-top reactions in one of these shows, be sure to check out the other to satisfy your appetite.
Angels are genteel and graceful messengers from Heaven, right? Wrong! Sakura Kusakabe will create an invention that inadvertently ruins the future for womankind and thus, angels from the future have arrived to do the only reasonable thing: assassinate him! Fortunately for Sakura, one of them, Dokuro-chan, takes a liking to him but her intentions to protect him prove downright lethal. When Sakura’s not dodging her spiked bat Excalibolg, he’s fighting for his life on river escapades. And when he’s not quick enough, Dokuro-chan’s catchy incantation brings him back to life! Bludgeoning and blood splatters aside, can Dokuro-chan save the one she loves without damaging the future?
Dokuro-chan and Muteki both have over-the-top, mindless cartoon violence with all the depth and complexity of a Tom and Jerry episode. Sometimes that's all you need.
I liked Dokuro-chan WAY more than Musume, but both are over-the-top, action-packed random fests that will likely appeal to the same fans.
Sousuke Sagara is far from the average high school student - not only is he highly trained in military tactics, he puts his knowledge to use in every single applicable situation (and even those nonapplicable ones.) So, when confronted with high school, he tends to turn average high school experiences into off-the-wall adventures. Love letters become terrorist threats and field trips become commando operations; his survival depends on the watchful eye of his best friend and classmate, Kaname. Together, they may just make it out of high school alive...
Muteki Kanban Musume and Fumoffu are similar in that each uses a very slapstick style of comedy filled with both over-the-top violence and sheer randomness. Fumoffu is a bit more sophisticated, with inklings of romance and characters that have development beyond "violent nutcase", but if you enjoy the style of comedy, either of these series should make for a solid choice.
Full metal panic? Fumoffu and Muteki kanban musume are hilarious. Things just happen and you just start laughing like a maniac. Cute girls and Random violence are the ingredients to a great comedy.
