For the chibi-sized, adorable Churuya-san, the world seems big and hard, just like a chunk of smoked cheese – a delicious morsel that she wants nothing more than to get her hands on. Kyon, Haruhi and the rest of the gang always seem to tease her, and her quest for the dairy delight is constantly thwarted by rain, changed plans, and other wacky misadventures! Beautiful flowers, a colourful rainbow and a positive attitude can only comfort Churuya-san as she struggles forward with her mission to find some tasty smoked cheese!
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!
Churuya-san's antics reminded me heavily of the characters in Azumanga Daioh. If you're looking for squealingly-cute situations and a dose of randomness, look no further than both of these titles.
Both Azumanga Daioh and Nyoron Churuya-san are cute and random comedies. While Churuya-san is shorter, both have a similar sort of feel to them, so if you like one, you may enjoy the other.
Ayu and Mayu, two charming waitresses from the Sky Temple restaurant, are upset. Cast to be mere side characters in the world of Kimi ga Nozomu Eien and Akane Maniax, they're back – but this time they’re running the show! From doing daily chores to playing surgeon, to fighting zombies and aliens alike, follow Ayu and Mayu as they plot their revenge against Akane, Mitsuki, Haruka and the rest of the gang!
Ayumayu Theater succeeds at what Nyoron Churuya-san tries and fails to be: a funny parody / spinoff of the original. Being filled with references to events and characters of the original, having chibified characters that actually look good and being plenty lighthearted, slightly twisted and actually funny at times, Ayumayu is the better version of Nyoron
(note to readers: Ayumayu isn't a Haruhi-spinoff, but from other series)
One day, Dejiko, Puchiko and the strange ball-shaped Gema-Gema crash land their UFO in the middle of Akihabara. Without a single yen to their name they have nowhere to go, but following an unexpected and generous offer from the manager of a nearby store, the trio begin working at the shop in exchange for renting the room upstairs. Alongside Dejiko’s self-confessed rival Rabi-en-Rose, as well as a mysterious bear that has mastered the ability to appear happy, sad, depressed and angry all at once, the insanity is only just beginning! From shooting window shoppers with Dejiko’s Laser Eye Beam and the appearance of a bizarre farting impostor, to a sudden attack on the city by Godzilla, life at Gamers is certainly livening up.
When they aren’t rehearsing, what are the girls of the Keion-bu really up to? While Yui spends countless hours pondering what Mio’s forehead looks like or how Mugi’s eyebrows move, Ritsu terrorizes everyone with her camera. From discussing Mio’s underwear and what Yui was like as a child to deciding what kind of animal everyone would be, there’s no shortage of conversation to entertain the girls of the light music club.
In a normal neighborhood in a normal city, a young maid arrives from the maid village to help out a young unnamed girl. But this battery-operated being is no ordinary maid! Not only can she remove her head and turn her body into glue (amongst other things), Cheko-chan also has the wackiest of friends. From Mizore, the edible snow spirit from the north, to Nachiko, a large squid who likes to change faces, to Kanato the Yankee, the bully who is the strongest of them all, it seems the craziness has just begun in the life of a once typical high school student.
