Dating sim master Keima Katsuragi wants nothing more than to immerse himself in the 2D world, chasing digital girlfriends. But when the so-called 'Capturing God' answers a mysterious email from an unknown sender, Keima finds himself chasing down real-life ladies in an attempt to help the peppy demon Elsie de Lute Irma capture 'lost souls' escaped from the depths of hell. Now, lest the explosive collar around his neck detonate, Keima must convince various girls to fall in love with him in order to scare out the souls hiding in their hearts.
Both anime feature a guy who is obsessed with dating games. He is surrounded by all different kinds of girls who he is trying to make fall in love with him. Both series feature lots of satire and referrences to other anime and typical cliches and have a fun tone.
It's the first day of high school, and plenty of school clubs are doing their best to recruit new members. However, for ditzy Yui, none of them seem to fit the bill. However, when she accidentally signs up to join the light music club, Yui begins a hilarious adventure to become a world class guitarist! There's just one problem: she's never played the guitar before in her life! Joined by bassist Mio, drummer Ritsu and keyboardist Tsugumi, Yui and the gang will juggle their studies with buying instruments, learning how to read music and even performing in the school festival, all in the hopes of someday becoming a successful band!
Both shows revolve around daily life in a high school club. The shows don't have any particular stories. Just chatter among the club members and the events almost always take place inside the club room.
Konata, Tsukasa, Kagami and Miyuki are four ordinary high school girls who live their lives from day to day. However with their own brand of humour, and Konata’s seemingly endless supply of anime, manga and game references; the girls can make even their mundane everyday adventures that little bit more enjoyable. Whether they are talking to their friend’s dog, turning a gym class game of volleyball into a match between sisters, getting lost on a hike or even playing online RPG games with their teacher, the lives of these friends is anything but dull.
Random Parody Power! That would sum up either anime in 3 words. If you like the humour style of one i guarantee you, you will like the sense of humour in the other.
While SnI makes references in rapid fire to more recent stuff- Lucky Star's parodies tend to last longer and are of a more timeless nature. 'timotei' ftw!
Watch either for a great laugh!
Medaka Kurokami is the perfect honor student. She has exemplary grades, talent at any sport she tries her hand at, comes from a rich family, is exceptionally popular, and has just become the first ever freshman student to be elected School President! During her inauguration speech she proclaims that she will endeavor to help every student with any problem if they simply submit it to the newly instated suggestion box. But with a bare-bones student council consisting of only herself and her unwilling accomplice Zenkichi, people are unsure whether to take her seriously or not. Regardless, Medaka takes each suggestion and gives her all to fulfil any request, be it ridding the kendo hall of delinquents, writing a love letter, or helping a struggling art student find his muse.
Both of these anime follow the antics of a student council and their friends with quite colorful personalities. They both have the same over-arching theme, similar humor and highly likable characters in each. They also both have their serious moments of sincerity and real life lessons.
