One day, the typical Sunao Moriyama found something not-so-typical in his refrigerator: a small creature between the potatoes and mayonnaise that he dubs Potemayo! Sunao decides to take care of Potemayo and takes her with him everywhere he goes, and as a result Potemayo quickly becomes popular with Sunao's classmates. However, the tranquility of the new friendship is broken with the arrival of another creature from Sunao's fridge – this time a scythe-wielding laser-shooting horned creature he dubs Guchuko. Now, every day brings new adventures and surprises with Potemayo and Guchuko around!
Tsuchida has just started working at the Hanamaru Kindergaten, and, as the first and only male teacher at the school, he’s particularly nervous. Unfortunately his first day doesn’t go quite as smoothly as planned as not only does Tsuchida turn up late, but then a small girl named Anzu claims that he hit on her in front of all the parents! Though he manages to initially clear up the misunderstanding, at the beginning of his second day, Anzu proclaims that she will be his bride and that her mother, Tsuchida’s senior in high school, is supporting them all the way! Now as Tsuchida attempts to become the best teacher he can be, he must also try and quell the rumors that he is dating Anzu, and maybe win the heart of the beautiful and kind, yet ultimately clueless, Yamamoto-sensei…
At first, these two animes have really similar characters. For example Potemayo and Anzu. Similarities don't go only for appearance, but also for their behaviour and character. Art in both animes is similar too, thought Potemayo has less detailed background.You can find lots of other common features, like jokes.
So if you liked one of those two, you'll like another one for sure.
Potemayo and Hanamaru Youichen are similar when comparing it's cast of characters. The main hook for both series' are that they involve small story events (with no real depth) of chibi-like characters with a lovable, eccentric approach. Enjoying one will ensure you'd enjoy the other.
My main reasoning behind this rec is that both of these series are incredibly cute and feature tiny, adorable protagonists. While Hanamaru actually features humans as opposed to whatever Potemayo actually is, they both give off the same sort of easy-watching, comic vibe.
If you liked Potemyo or Hanamaru Yochien, you'll like them both. Both anime are very cute and a lot of fun to watch. The characters are cute and funny. Also, some characters are similar, like potemayo and anzu, Tuchida and Moriyama. I recommend both anime very much!
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!
Potemayo and Azumanga Daioh are both character-driven slice of life comedies based on 4-panel comics, with some bizarre twists - in Potemayo it's the oddness of the seemingly toddler-aged creatures like the eponymous main character, where in Azumanga Daioh it's the fun personalities and odd imaginations of the girls. Although Potemayo gets more adult at times, and Azumanga doesn't have as much of a fantasy element, both shows have weird, fun humor that can sometimes turn sweet, poignant, or even melancholy.
Cuteness to the extreme!
Alright, its true that Potemayo has more cute characters (literally!) while Azumanga is more character-focused...however, the end result in both is a comedy-of-errors...and in that sense, they both succeed imo
Both animes are really funny and if you need your dose of laugh-out-loud moments, either should serve you wonderfully
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.
Potemayo and Di Gi Charat are both completely random and wacky series. They are also really cute. You can't help but squeal at their cuteness and laugh at their craziness. If you've watched one then you have to watch the other!
If you're in it for the colossal moe (cuteness) factor, the adorable comedy, or... just have a thing for living plushies, Potemayo is your next must-see. Just be aware that Potemayo goes where Di Gi Charat probably wouldn't; all the chibi's bodily functions are intact, and often will often cause even more hilarity.
Haré and his mother live peacefully in the jungle, until one day the boy is overtaken by a omnipotent shadow. Later, he awakens to find Guu, a strange girl with even stranger abilities - notably, the ability to switch from a cute, lovable Guu, to a menacing delinquent who eats everything. Now Haré must live with Guu, and lead a normal life, despite her oddities.
Like Hare Guu, Potemayo is a very zany comedy with more than a slight dose of anti-realism, but also has a very lighthearted feeling to it. In both shows, there are constantly abnormal things happening, often to the chagrin of one or more characters; however, none of it is taken too seriously and none has an effect on the plot of the episode - in fact, it often is the plot of the episode.
In both series, the main character and their friends are considerably normal in comparison to the characters causing all of the mischief, and the situations are usually their responses to that mischief. However, in either series the group of friends is actually incredibly strange, and only the main character is actually normal at all.
Both series also manage to pull off incredibly risqué humor such as sexual overtones and massive bloodshed without loosing their lightheartedness.
What do you do if one day you find something at home that is immeasurably cute on the outside, and makes your life hell on the outside...?
Both Jungle wa itsumo and Potemayo deal with this issue in an upbeat way, much to the annoyance of the main characters at times. The bizarre storylines, and reactions of the people on the outside are what make these series viewable again and again.
Don't expect a life changing experience, just sit back and enjoy with a "wtf...?" expression.
$10 can not only buy you a cute hamster; it also get you a devoted housekeeper who will cook, clean, put on suntan lotion, and cheer you on when your relationships get stale! Does it seem like a dream? Then picture what life would be like if anybody who calls your house gets to know the contents of your underwear drawer! If you can’t imagine what rodents and ecchi have to do with each other, then enter the life of the hamster Ebichu, her sexy master, and the good-for-nothing boyfriend Kaishounachi, and see why a talking hamster can be such a bother!
I love shows like this, that would probably deter most people because of the childish premise and animation style.
What hides beneath this deceptive shell are two of my favourite comedy shows. The humour is most definitely adult, and a lot of younger viewers will not appreciate it (and should probably not be allowed to watch Ebichu)
Ebichu is purely comedic, whilst there is much more depth to Potemayo. However, if you appreciate one, I'm sure it will work the other way around.
