There’s never a dull day in lives of the Hekiyou Academy student council! President Kurimu has a sweet tooth and neglects her duties with ease, while secretary Chizuru skillfully manipulates those around her. Otaku Mafuyu obsesses over writing online walkthroughs, and is constantly hounded by Ken, the only male of their crew and an eroge addict who has the ultimate goal to turn the entire council into his harem. Luckily for Mafuyu she’s protected from his advances by Minatsu, her sporty and tomboyish sister! Together, the five repeatedly struggle in their fight against boredom, making constant otaku references and fighting against the journalism club along the way!
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!
Both anime are centered on a group of high school students and follows their daily routine. Also both of them have a similar kind of humour, though Seitokai no Ichizon is more focused on parodying anime while Azumanga Daioh just have random and silly jokes. If you like one, you should watch the other one.
Kodaka is a delinquent. At least, that’s what his fellow classmates seem to think. Thanks to his naturally-blonde hair and an unfortunate series of misunderstandings, the boy can’t seem to shake his false reputation and hasn’t made a single friend. That is, until one day he overhears the normally-aloof Yozora enthusiastically chatting with an imaginary friend, and discovers that she’s just as lonely as he is! In an attempt to finally meet people the duo decides to form the “Neighbors Club”, and are soon joined by a number of other fellow misfits such as Sena, the busty, popular daughter of the school president who can’t seem to connect with others. Together, the gang learns about the joys of friendship through many misadventures such as playing RPGs, visiting the swimming pool or even hunting down delicious takoyaki!
I would greatly reccomend this anime as they are both rather similar. They both have the male lead, with the the females all around in the clubroom. however while in seitokai no ichizon, the male lead always thinks he is in a harem, the male lead of "Boku wa tomodachi ga sukanai" doesn't want a harem. Besides that, Ichizon is essentially "Boku wa tomodachi ga sukanai" in one room. If you like the comedy of one, you will like the comedy of the other.
When Natsuki Andou jokingly said the only school club she’d join is the "Going Home Club", she had no idea it was actually real! Having now accidentally become a member, the girl soon discovers that the Going Home Club is anything but typical: they pass the time having as much fun as possible outside of the classroom, whether it’s feeding pigeons, going to a crepe stand, or even using martial arts moves to open bottles! Alongside fellow students Karin, Sakura, Claire and Botan, Natsuki will learn just how fun a school club can be.
I'm not even all the way done with the first episode of Chronicles of the Going Home Club and I thought to myself, this is so much like Seitokai no Ichizon I have to go place a recommendation for it! Both anime seem to be just about randomness and the crazy thoughts of the characters in the clubs. They are both character driven plots to the max and from what I've already seen, I think Going Home Club will have just as many funny references to things as Seitokai.
Ever wanted to join an anime club but felt its geekiness would hurt your reputation? Sasahara feels your pain. Genshiken, the Society for the Study of Modern Visual Culture, is an organization of college otaku obsessed with anime, manga and video games. Their daily activities include holding impromptu cosplay photo shoots, braving the crowds and avoiding injury at doujinshi conventions, and tolerating harassment by Saki, a girl irked by her boyfriend's otaku-ness! It's a perfect match for Sasahara's interests, so why is it so difficult for him to join?
Both shows have reference to the otaku culture. While Seizon explodes with randimosity and lacks a 4rd wall completely, Genshiken follows a more passive depiction of a group of kids who enjoy anime/manga related stuff.
In Gintoki's Japan, the arrival of the various space races known collectively as the Amanto ended the era of the samurai. The Amanto's highly advanced technology resulted in total conquest and a severe economic shift. Now, former samurai such as Gintoki scrape together whatever livelihood they can. Gintoki's profession of choice is that of a yorozuya: he'll complete any job for money. However, he’s unmotivated; and spending most of the day on the couch with the latest issue of Jump and a carton of Strawberry Milk is his preferred pastime. It turns out that his new unpaid employees, Shinpachi and Kagura, are going to interfere with his pastime even more than with his "work"! Of course, none of this means he has really given up on his samurai ideologies!
Rather than breaking the fourth wall, these shows don't even have that freaking wall. The contant spewing of self abusive and real life referencing jokes is plenty in either of these shows. They are both extreme comedies with a very awesome cast and hardly any primary followed plot. If you liked one you would surely like the other!
