Yuuko, Mio and Mai are regular high school girls who lead a normal everyday life. However, with bizarre explosions causing random objects to rain down on their heads, lunch turning into an epic battle between girl and wiener, and students riding to school on goats, their lives are anything but ordinary. Meanwhile android Nano spends her days wishing she were a normal human, but keeping house for her creator, the playful and immature child genius Hakase, dealing with talking cat Sakamoto, and trying to keep a hold of her multitude of easily-detachable body parts, her dream is far from a reality...
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.
Nichijou focuses on everyday life and this isn't far from what Minami-ke is about. Minami-ke though has more plot and gives more depth to each character than Nichijou can sometimes do. Minami-ke's also pretty random at times and this mirors pretty much what Nichijou is, random. Both are definitely funny and you should be able to laugh atleast once each episode. They are episodic and have several stories poured into one episode but that doesn't get boring, not even once; note though that Minami-ke sometimes do have episodes that flow. So if you're looking for non-sensical fun, Nichijou and Minami-ke are must-watches. Also if you check out Minami-ke, be sure to also check its sequels and ovas.
Slice of life/comedy, set round a group of girls who attend a high school and get into hilarious situations.
Both are about a group of kids going to school doing kid stuff in a hilarious way. If you enjoy school life comedies these 2 are sure to please with their random and fun characters interacting with each other in and outside of the classrooms.
Sonya may look like a regular school girl, but in truth she’s a deadly assassin who keeps to herself. Despite many warnings not to get involved with her, ditzy Yasuna decides that she is her friend, even if it means getting her arm broken or ending up in a headlock each time she surprises the young hitman. And just to make matters worse, ninja girl, Agiri - an associate of Sonya's - also attends the same school. With Sonya resorting to violence at every turn and Agiri parading her various "techniques" at every turn, Yasuna’s school life is about to get all the more hectic... that is, if she can manage to survive in one piece!
Both are high school-based comedies centered on a (more) serious girl trying to put up with the zany antics of her goofball friend. The dynamics between Mio and Yuuko are similiar to those between Sonya and Yasuna.
Both are about a group of no-so-normal girls who get up to the most random of things. Baby, please kill me is just like Nichijou in many ways, mainly because they are both completely random. There isn't any story in both but that makes it even more random. So anyway if you liked one you should like the other.
Renge's humour reeks of Nichijou's style. Both animes are about the everyday life of schoolgirls and they are similar, though the differences in the environment (for Non Non Biyori - the countryside, and for Nichijou (most of the time) - the city).
Both are pretty random when you think about it, in both animes the characters end up in weird situations. They are both very lighthearted and are both very good to watch after a more serious series. The characters are pretty similar in a way, for instance Yuuko has a slightly unusual way of saying hello, which is a bit like Renge. This point is quite small though, anyway I say if you liked one you should like the other!
Incensed at the damage done to the sea and its wildlife at the the hands of humanity, Squid Girl rises from the depths of the ocean to enslave humanity! Her mission proves more difficult than it first seems, however, when she gets dragooned into working at the Aizawa beach restaurant. Will the easily distracted, blissfully ignorant, and slightly thick Ika-Musume convert her managers' humble house into her base? Will she use the power of her mighty tentacles to bring all of humanity to heel? Or will she at least learn how to properly wait tables?
Nichijou randomly exploits the random everyday lives of its characters and Ika Musume doesn't differ in comparison to that. Both deliver comedy comprehensible to us foreigners but there are resources used that may not be obvious to people new to japanese culture and lifestyle. If you're into lighthearted and episodic comedies that feels as if it's just randomly moving along and with no plot in sight, Nichijou or Ika Musume may just be your next favorite anime.
Both titles are slice-of-life comedies that use vignettes to tell witty stories which are often very random in nature. Lashings of moe and general endearment abound in each. If you liked one you'll probably like the other, although the characters are very different in comparison.
In the middle of class at a certain school, Rumi Yokoi, a diligent student, has her in-class life turned upside-down when her next-door desk mate "Seki" (full name Toshinari Seki) begins to play by himself at his desk in class. Although Yokoi is irked by Seki's distracting yet intricate playtime, she finds herself being drawn into his interesting hobby. Never being able to focus, Yokoi observes Seki's stunning ways of slacking off in class.
These are both absurdist comdies in a school setting where simple situation is taken to it's comedic extreme. Both shows don't have a particular plot, but instead each episode introduces new random comedic skits as the characters gets themselves into all kinds of surreal and bizarre situations.
Nichijou has full episodes so each episode is made up of multiple skits. Tonari no Seki is a short seven minutes per episode which lets it take one concept and then make it as over the top and silly as possible. Tonari is also a bit more grounded as large parts of the comedy happen in the minds of the characters, whereas in Nichijou literally anything can happen, but they both use the radom comedic style and absurd very well.
If you like random comedy and seeing mundane situations quickly unravel in the most bizarre ways then check out these comedies.
Tonari no Seki-Kun has 6min episodes, while Nichijou has 30min episodes with several segments. Similar Daramtic situation. But Tonari no Seki-Kun is a little less hyper compared to Nichijou. Nichijou includes other things along with 'comedy in class due to certain person is doing mischievous things'.
