Azumanga Daioh

Azumanga Daioh

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!

At first glance, Paniponi Dash will seem like a ripoff of Azumanga. Indeed, it follows the same format, though it definitely is a lot spazzier and contains tons of parodies. If you like Paniponi, you should definitely check out Azumanga. It's way funnier in my opinion, and the animation is also better. Fans of PPD would like AD.

kenners
If you liked either Azumanga Daioh or Pani Poni Dash, you might like the other. They both find themselves in new places every episode, and Pani Poni Dash particularly brings in content from all manner of places -- Pay attention, or you might miss something hilarious!
Gin

From having the same setting and random storytelling techniques to having almost the same characters, there really isn't much that differentiates these two anime. However, Paniponi Dash is a bit more random, wackier and generally funnier, but only if you already are familiar with a great deal of other anime. Thus, it would be better if you start by watching Azumanga Daioh and then switch over to Paniponi Dash than vice versa.

crimsoneyes

High school, teenagers, a 10 or 11-year-old who is very smart; Azumanga Daioh is about a group of girls attending high school and the activities of their daily lives, while PPD is about the daily life of young Becky's class. Although PPD has a lot of... abnormal occurences, it's still a great comedy just like Azumanga.

TheGiftedMonkey

Complete and utter nonsense in your "average" high school day is all I have to say. Both skip around a bunch of high school girls (and sometimes the occassional guy) and their crazy antics with plenty of cameos and otaku references abound.

partytiger

The two series shares a lot of elements, like the inclusion of a 'child prodigy' and a gallery of stereotypical characters. Both of them also include strange occurences especially in regards to some of the minor sidecharacters/animals.

icejamez

Warning both contain massive lols. Both are set in a highschool and they follow the daily lifes of the various dynamic and hystarical character's. I'f you want a memorable laugh or just an amazing all around comedy anime check it out nay? O_O Oh! Neko-chan has entered my roomsuu. :3 Nyaaa she goes. Hee hee hee. *scratch*

sorcerer101

If you like Paniponi Dash!, then you would also like Azumanga Daioh. What they mostly hav i comman is their genres: Comdey, slice of life, school life. What I like about about them being in comman or the same is that they talk about random stuff.

Menchi

Total randomness is on the menu when speaking of Azumanga Daioh and Paniponi Dash! Both of these titles feature a group of erm.. quite special characters, and the events of the shows are centered around school. Guaranteed fun for friends of comedy!

TreeckOshawott

If you liked eith Azumanga Daioh or Paniponi Dash!, you'll love the other one because both feature the same kind of humor, ranging from pop culture referrences to absurd, non-sensical comments that often leave you dying of laughter.  Also, they both rely heavily on the stereotypes of the characters eastblished early on in the show.  They type of characters used in each show is similar, yet each show is different enough to not be spin-offs of the other.

Sasukefanx12

These lighthearted anime both involve the crazy antics of a group of high school girls with very different personalities (a handful of guys but not many). They're both light, simple comedies and a major part in both is how a 10yr-old acclamates to a high school setting, and many jokes are based off that concept in both anime. Paniponi however is a bit more mature than Azumanga and in my opinion is FAR funnier. The main difference is that the comedy in Paniponi is more random and bizarre more frequently than Azumanga but fans of one will most likely enjoy the other as well.

RoseOfInfinity107

If you like the schoo girl animes with crazy escapades then you'll like this one as well! The real big difference between the two is the roles the child prodigy play in both show. Other than that, both are as equally funny and filled with girl power.

Lucky Star

Lucky Star

In present day Japan, the life of a school girl is never dull. The easily-bored Konata never finds time to study because of her otaku habits, which frustrates hard-working Kagami to no end. On the other hand, laid-back Tsukasa always manages to go with the flow, while Miyuki is concerned with keeping her status as resident know-it-all. Join these four girls as they muse and meander their way through everyday events such as eating chocolate cones, doing homework, gaming, and trips to the beach galore.

Both Lucky Star and Paniponi Dash! are full of meta-humor, in-jokes, subculture references and clever jabs at the real people who make and watch anime. Every single episode of both shows is packed with so many references that it is practically impossible to keep track of them. So if you like the humor and in-jokes in one of them, it's a fair bet that you will like the other, as well. Besides... "you are already dead."

JustAbigail

Both Lucky Star and Paniponi Dash focus on a large group of high school girls and have very loose, random humor. Both also have a wide range of personalities among the characters and a large amount of anime references and parodies.

TheGiftedMonkey

Complete and utter nonsense in your "average" high school day is all I have to say. Both skip around a bunch of high school girls (and sometimes the occassional guy) and their crazy antics with plenty of cameos and otaku references abound.

partytiger

Both series are wacky and makes a lot of parodic references to popular culture. Both are also without any real storyline, whilst including many stereotypical characters.

yuushizm

Both have the same "in school" comedy effect. The jokes are similar. Both involve absolutely adorable girls. I really don't see how you can one and not the other.

cassiesheepgirl

Both Lucky Star and Paniponi Dash are easy watching series packed with humour. Both series follow the exploits of a group of high school students and what they get up to in their lives. Whilst the exploits of the students in Paniponi Dash are far more insane than the comparatively mundane activities of those in Lucky Star, both series are also packed with various cultural and otaku references. If you liked one of these series, try the other one out.

icejamez

Hee hee hee hee :3. These animes are the best. Set in highschools they are two of my favorites and I'll love the characters in em forever. They are both garanteed to make you laugh unless your dead inside. And how could that be you anime loving freak. So hop on the mystical train of laughter and moe. In other words be sure to watch. :3 Also the more of an otaku you are the more you'll enjoy both cause they make tons of references to stuff. Especially Paniponi Dash.

Menchi

Paniponi Dash! and Lucky Star are quirky, funny and cute school-centered shows that are surely entertaining for all comedy fans. Parody is also a key element in both series, and if you enjoy finding not-so-subtle references to other shows or cultural phenomena in anime shows, these two titles are definitely for you.

ltorrent

If you liked PaniPoni Dash! or Lucky Star you'd like them both because both of them are parody based on humor of absurd. Also both of them are drawn in a very bright colours which is so good to bring your mood up especially at cold and dark autumn or winter days.

Jsrf38

If you enjoyed either Paniponi Dash! or Lucky Star, you will certainly enjoy the other. Lucky Star and Paniponi Dash! are both parodic anime with references running in all different directions. If you are a huge otaku and know every which thing about Japan or it's anime and games, both of these series would be great to look at. Like most anime these days, the main protaganists are girls, each having their own unique characteristic making all of them lovable and always fun. Another good thing about these series are that they don't have any real plot, it's just here to entertain you with random jokes, references, or those moments where you go 'Oh, I know what you mean!'. I highly recommend these two anime series, Lucky Star and Paniponi Dash! if you enjoyed the other. Even if you haven't watched either, it's never too late to watch them now.

FreddyCrab

Both of these are fairly eccentric yet quite simple stories of girls in high school. Both are very funny and laid back. The art styles in both of them is fairly simplistic too.

Excel Saga

Excel Saga

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!

Paniponi Dash and Excel Saga are both extremely high octane comedy series, with tons of parodies. To be honest I found both to be a little much for me, but I can clearly see that fans of one would like the other.

Aexile

Both are extreme over-the-top comedies with storylines only serving as another means to make jokes. They both have points where they threaten to stop making sense for the purposes of comedy. Characters breaking the 4th wall is not uncommon in either series.

Senoj8

Both of series have no real plot or storyline, they're just funny as hell. So, if you liked who you should like the other.

galacticdude7

Both Excel Saga and Pani Poni Dash specialize in the absurd and crazy. Both shows make little sense, and thats what makes them great. If you like one, then you'll definately like the other.

Rfsancho

Panidash and Excel are both great series for those who want high paced comedy bundled with tons of parodies and 4th wall breaking references. I'm pretty sure the viewer will enjoy both.

Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei

Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei

Life is simply not worth living for down and out school teacher Itoshiki Nozomu. He has no hope of progress, no prospect of promotion, no chance at happiness… he is in despair! Even his name spells 'zetsubou' – 'despair', when compressed. But when the time comes to end it all, Itoshiki's attempted suicide on the first day of the new school year is foiled by relentlessly positive Fuura Kafuka. This saves Itoshiki long enough to meet his new class, and the quirky range of students under his care. Will Itoshiki Nozomu depress his students with his anguish? Or will Fuura show Zetsubou-sensei the joys of life and hope?

Throughout Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei and Paniponi Dash!, there runs a common thread of in-jokes and references to popular culture, including other anime. This is part of a recent fad in anime, and other examples of this tendency include Lucky Star and Negima!?

Both anime make frequent use of blackboard writings in the background to deliver in-jokes and subtle (and not-so-subtle) digs at the characters, at other anime, and at the series creators themselves.

If you are the type of viewer who gets the jokes in one of these anime, you'll surely enjoy the other.

Cetonis

Pani Poni Dash and Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei have a good deal in common. Both are school comedies revolving around an unusual teacher, and both have hyper-stereotyped students (and revel in it!). They're also full of all sorts of little notes, cultural references, and randomness in its truest form. Sayonara is a lot more mature/brash, but unless that's an important quality to you, be sure to try one of these if you liked the second.

flyboy42

Both animes have a similar crazy, hectic theme often found in SHAFT prouctions. Another point is that sayonara zetsubou sensei actually references Paniponi Dash (in the same hectic way paniponi would refrence, say, evangalion)

Nakama

Both stories are in common because they are about a high school teacher, who is different than every other normal high school teacher, and is a parody of about other animes/manga and the outside world.

KiraRin

Making this a one way recommendation, I think people who liked the off-beat parody humour of Paniponi will adore SZS. Although the latter is a newer show, the similarity is more than a little obvious. SZS manages to take the same crazy classroom situation and pull it off with a lot more style. If you enjoyed Paniponi and enjoy slightly more mature humour too, I definitely recommend giving SZS a whirl.

Negima!?

Negima!?

Negi Springfield is a typical ten year-old Welsh boy -- except that he's a mage, and an English teacher at an all girls school in Japan! In order to become a full mage he has to prove himself as a teacher and find suitable partners to aid him; but above all, he has to make sure that no one discovers his secret. Much to his dismay his secret is discovered on the first day by one of his students, Asuna. To prevent Negi from being punished, Asuna agrees to become his partner -- however she isn't the only one to find out. As time goes by more of his students find out his secret. How long can he keep his powers hidden when little by little all of his students are becoming his partners?

Considering PPD and Negima are made by the same people, the parallels are striking from the complete randomness of the scenes to the obscure inside jokes.

abunai

Paniponi Dash! and Negima!?, like the similar anime Lucky Star and Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei, are part of a current fad in anime which requires a great deal of anime experience and cultural ballast from the viewer. They are anime made for fans, not really for the general public (though of course, their appeal is wider than merely the fan audience).

With ubiquitous "in-joke" blackboard writings and recurring verbal references, these anime demand a lot of the viewer, to achieve full effect (though you can just shut off that part of your brain and watch them for sheer madcap fun). But if one of these is your thing, then it's likely that you'll enjoy the other, too.

cassiesheepgirl

Though both Pani Poni Dash and Mahou Sensei Negima are comedies, their style of humour is slightly different. However, both series feature a child teaching a class of students much older than themselves. Also in both cases the students adore their teacher and they go on various wacky adventures. Also both are creations from Shaft, so if you liked the bright visual style of one, you will enjoy the other.

plethebest

Both Paniponi Dash! and Negima!? are comedies based around the same type of setup, where a kid teaches a class of students. The style in which both are presented is also very similar to each other. Both have running gags throghout and jokes within the background such as writing on blackboards.

They do however differ in some key points, such as Negima!? being more magical orientated and brings a different sort of humour with it over Paniponi Dash!
