While visiting his hometown, junior high school student Michishio Nagasumi's life was changed forever when he nearly drowned. Though he was saved by a mermaid named San, there’s a catch -- her family is part of a merfolk mafia, and they abide by a strict rule: If a mermaid is discovered by a man, either he or the mermaid must die. That is, unless the man marries into the family! Faced with such a decision, Nagasumi can only oblige their customs and become a "happy" newlywed. Now, with a new school year around the corner, Nagasumi must find a way to deal with his new bride, keep her true nature a secret, and most importantly, escape inevitable death at the hands of San's over-protective father’s gang!
Nakahara Sunako, a high school girl whose interests include horror movies, coffins and gore, is sent by her aunt to live in an extravagant mansion with four ridiculously handsome boys. As if living with these “radiant creatures” who give her constant nosebleeds isn’t hard enough, she soon discovers that the boys have made a bet with her aunt: in exchange for free rent, they will try to mold Sunako into a magnificent lady. As someone who has cast aside all her femininity and sworn to live in darkness, Sunako is ready to do whatever it takes to nullify these efforts; but is there a way for the creatures of darkness and light to coexist?
If you liked the humor in Seto no Hanayome, you'd also like the humor in Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge.
These Anime are Hilarious!!! Too good to be true and a good laugh when feeling down! I highly recommend one if you have seen the other... also the comedy is similar in both despite different story lines.
Yoichi Karasuma is a strong young samurai who was born and raised in the mountains. One day his father decides to send him to the city to stay with the four Ikuraga sisters so that he can gain valuable life experience, but his first trip into civilization doesn’t go quite as planned. Not only is he late to meet his new hostesses, but he is labelled a pervert and manages to get himself arrested – twice! Now, as he lives at the Ikuraga Dojo with Ibuki, Ayame, Kagome and Chihaya, Yoichi must adapt to his new life at school while accepting the rather violent ‘training’ he receives from Ibuki. After making an enemy of the school delinquent and with a mysterious man after his life, it seems that Yoichi’s quest to gain life experience won’t be so smooth after all!
Both anime were comedic romance with a slight fighting theme to them, and both wound up a man trying his hardest to break up the male and female lead, yet ultimately kidnapping and drugging her for a marriage against her will. At this point, All her family and friends must go rescue her with, obviously, the most action packed part of the show. Right down to the rival of the main male with a bit of a ditzy friend, and the rival to the main lead being a flat chested tsundere, these shows were increadibly similar.
Sagara Sousuke is far from the average high school student -- not only is he highly trained in military tactics, he puts his knowledge to use in every single applicable situation (and even those nonapplicable ones.) So, when confronted with high school, he tends to turn average high school experiences into off-the-wall adventures. Love letters become terrorist threats and field trips become commando operations; his survival depends on the watchful eye of his best friend and classmate, Chidori. Together, they may just make it out of high school alive...
Top two school life comedies of all time. With a wide variety of whacky characters and the differences between the male and female lead bring about hilarious situations and excellent slapstick comedy. Both are a must watch for any comedy fan!
Rentarou has been running the Futaba Detective Agency with the help of his twin assistants Sara and Soujyu since the previous man in charge, his father, died. To top it off most people in the neighborhood refer to him as Nidaime, a second generation man who lives in his father's shadow. His late father was a great man that was looked up to by everyone good or bad including Rentarou. With problems from his father's legacy presenting themselves, Yakuza that sometimes want him dead, a workplace/home that keeps getting destroyed and Sara and Soujyu's growing feelings for him, will he ever live up to his father?
These two anime show the craziness of Japanimation humor. Although Futakoi eventually adopts a serious atmosphere, these shows are demonstrate a wacky cast with out-of-the-blue funny antics.
In a world not unlike our own, mages are commonplace and schools are separated between normal students and magic users. Yuma Kohinata is a student at one such school, Mizuhosaka Academy. On the way home from buying chocolates with his androgynous friend Jun, Yuma is given chocolates from school idol Haruhi Kamisaka; things become even more complex once the magic wing of the school has a gas explosion, displacing all of the magic students into the normal section – including Haruhi! Now, Yuma finds himself thrust into the world of magic, and must deal with the various women who vie for his affections; can he juggle his priorities and continue to pass his classes?
If you've seen one you will most likely enjoy watching the other. Both have a single girl the main charactor is set on. In both the main protaginist fight an overwelming power to get closer and finally become one with the other in marrage or as a couple. They both also have a serious yet somtimes funny or weird feel about them.
