As the mighty star fleet of the planet Keron prepare their invasion of Earth, Sergeant Keroro and his elite team of commandos have been sent to infiltrate the enemy strongholds and gather as much intelligence as possible. However, it seems even his extensive military training is no match for the forces of Earth, as he is discovered and captured by the two middle school siblings, Fuyuki and Natsumi. Submitted to the rigorous torture of housework duty, the amphibious Keroro must now bide his time, covertly locate his squad-mates, and resume his mission of conquest!
Incensed at the damage done to the sea and its wildlife at the the hands of humanity, Squid Girl rises from the depths of the ocean to enslave humanity! Her mission proves more difficult than it first seems, however, when she gets dragooned into working at the Aizawa beach restaurant. Will the easily distracted, blissfully ignorant, and slightly thick Ika-Musume convert her managers' humble house into her base? Will she use the power of her mighty tentacles to bring all of humanity to heel? Or will she at least learn how to properly wait tables?
The cute adventures of metally adept invaders who are kept in check by the first family they come across. All in bite sized episodes
These series remind me of each other as they deal with adorable, non-threatening lead characters that seek to take over Earth. They both appear to fit in with the humans they end up subject to, while secretly never giving up on their goal of world domination.
Same laughter, same intentions for the main character: WORLD DOMINATION, same hillarious antics, only different species. Nuff said.
Both Shinryaku! Ika Musume and Sergeant Frog are about two supposed invaders who don't really do much invading. As incompetent as Ika Musume and Sergeant Keroro are in achieving their invasion goals, they adapt quite nicely to their surroundings and make friends among earthlings.
While Ika Musume is more episodic than Sgt. Frog, they both share a great brand of comedy with the characters that inhabit it. Granted that Sgt. Frog's comedy is a good part references, they should both appeal to fans of either one if what they want is more invaders adapting to the lifestyle of Earth with hilarity ensuing.
When young Ami-chan and her family moved to a new home, she didn’t know what to expect, but not even in her wildest dreams could she have expected the bizarreness that awaits her. Moving her things into her new room, Ami discovers a pretty little doorway leading into the floor. Surprisingly, three creatures greatly resembling stuffed animals jumped out to greet her! Iyo the bunny, Kenta the bear and Issa the panda claim to be the Happy Aniyoko Trio, and say they live beyond the door in another dimension called Animal Yokocho. From that day forward, the three frequent Ami-chan’s bedroom, bringing with them their annoying antics, strange fun and games, and of course... trouble!
These series both feature a group of strange creatures whose exploits generally spell bad news for those around them. Be it Keroro's quest for world domination, or Iyo, Kenta and Issa's attempts to help out Ami. The series are both aimed at a younger audience, Animal Yokocho particularly, and as such share a similar style of humour, with plenty of slapstick and silliness. Both are simple, light-hearted fun, so if you enjoyed one the other could be worth a look too.
Both Animal Yokocho and Keroro Gunsou involve children discovering myseterious creatures in their houses. In the case of Animal Yokocho you have animals, and Keroro you have alien frogs. Keroro and Animal Yokocho are also quite innocent series packed with comedy and humorous situations. While Keroro is generally more wacky, if you enjoyed one then you may like the other.
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!
The main reason that Keroro Gunso is a recommendation for Azumanga Daioh, and vice versa, is because of the humor. The randomness brings these 2 series together.
Azumanga Daioh and Keroro Gunso are both upbeat and spontaneous. All the humor makes you keep watching the episode all the way to the end.
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!
Excel Saga (as it's own subtitle says) can be defined as the godfather of all demential/insane comedy anime.
Keroro derives much of his appeal from his ancestor, and if you're a fan of the funniest type of anime out there, you can't miss out on the one that created the genre.
Excel Saga and Sergeant Frog both are animes that almost mock the structure of anime in a humorous way, without being offensive about it.
They have entertaining narrators and characters doing the weirdest things...
Both HIGHLY recommeneded
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!
Aliens + randomness = these
Although one is about aliens trying to invade while the other one, they have already invaded. Both also have a bit of parody to them and both are aimed towards kids and are very prolific.
They are actually really similar, they have to do with aliens being in Earth, they are both gag mangas as well, but Gintama has a more serious setting.
It's nice to watch when you have too much time on your hands, like over the holidays.
