Synopsis:

Years ago, Saku moved away from his hometown, leaving behind his friend and tormentor Mihoshi. As a child, Mihoshi constantly forced the bookish and shy Saku to play and look at the stars; and now, as Saku moves back home to attend high school, he prays for a quiet school life free from her grasp. Unfortunately, Saku’s desires are quickly shattered as Mihoshi catches sight of him and convinces him to join the school’s astronomy club. Alongside Mihoshi, the other club members and Hime - another girl from Saku’s past who’s determined to win him over - Saku continues his dreadfully unordinary high school life with a grimace and positive attitude!

K-On!

K-On!

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 series revolve on clubs duing very spicific things. Both are slice of life  and settle a lot on comedy and discovering who you are. and both have simmiler charecter modols

chii

Both anime are basically the same thing. Except in K-On the focus is music and in Sora no Manimani it is looking at the stars. a group of children get together and do either musical or astrology activities together while attending regular classes as well as taking it easy the slice of life way. If you liked one i'm sure you'll like the other.

Omurqi

Both Sora no Manimani and K-On! are anime about a high-school club with people trying to get the most out of their hobby. They both have a very lighthearted feel to them and avoid the grim or heavy themes. If you enjoyed one of these, and are looking for a similar, lighthearted show about a group of high school students with their club, give the other a try!

TidusBlade

Both animes revolve around a bunch of students and their club, just that in K-ON! it's the Music Club and in Sora no Manimani it's the Astronomy Club. I found that both had similar plots and themes, plus both have a good dose of comedy along with that light hearted feel to them that makes them great to watch at the end of the day. In the end, if you liked one, I'd check out the other, especially if you're interested in either Music or Astronomy, even though both don't delve too deep into either of them.

adriantoto

OK! If you like Sora no Manimani, you will also like K-On!! (and vice versa) Why?? Because these two anime('s) has similarities: the main character joins/creates a club (Sora no Manimani - Astronomy Club; K-On! - light music club); Yui and Mihoshi are very similar! their attitudes, oh, I can't think of anymore. So, watch K-On!/Sora no Manimani if you liked this show.

watsup3

There both are comedy involving school clubs and the characters are enjoying there hobbies and interests. they both involve similar light hearted themes

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya

The eccentric Suzumiya Haruhi wants nothing more than to meet aliens, time travelers and espers… but she’ll have to settle for the everyday Kyon instead! Along with the mysterious Itsuki and the vacant Mikuru, the duo forms the SOS Brigade – a club whose mission is to discover the mysteries of the world. Armed with a razor sharp wit and a skill for manipulation, Haruhi will stop at nothing to have fun at all costs, even at the expense of Mikuru’s dignity!

Sora no Manimani features a girl driven by her love of stars. Her personality over powers and wins against her childhood frind who loves books. She wants to have an astronomy club but is lacking in members. But she manages to pull it off.

Like Mihoshi from Sora no Manimani, Haruhi also has an overpowering personality and a love for something. She likes weird things like time travelers, aliens. etc. and started a club for that, but once again lacking in members.

They both have their weird moments and are very funny.

I think

Kari5

Both these shows are centered around a very loud and obnoxious girl and her high school club. Their friends try to keep them in check while participating in club activities including trips and fairs.

TidusBlade

The first thing that popped into my mind was Haruhi while watching Mihoshi advertise the Astronomy Club. Both series feature school clubs with aggresive female leads that are over the top enthusiastic about their club. Their plots are similiar, at least when it comes to the club, Haruhi goes much deeper when it comes to story.

Both also feature a bored guy as a main character that's dragged around catering to the female's every whim and that's where quite a lot of the comedy is taken from, which is pretty good in both of them. If you enjoyed one, I'd suggest you try watching the other, but don't expect a deep story in Sora no Manimani or a light hearted feel in Haruhi.

Hitohira

Hitohira

Asai Mugi's everyday life is very much impacted by a singular problem: she suffers from extreme shyness. Her sole friend Touyama Kayo would like to help her out as they've just entered high school, but Mugi's shyness is the sort that steals her voice entirely. It is too bad for Mugi that a freak shout on her part attracted the attention of Nono Ichinose. Nono is on a mission to save her Drama Research Society, and she isn't prepared to accept shyness as excuse from on-stage performances! With a small group of close friends to encourage and educate her, Mugi will be given a chance to be more than she is now. But, can someone so terribly shy really become a stage actress in just a few short months?

Hitohira and Sora no Manimani are about a student just entering high school who gets pressured into joining a club that he/she is totally not cut out for. But after some high-school-caliber drama/comedy/romance, the main character realizes his/her love for astronomy/acting, and makes a bunch of close friends and some other stuff. Yay!

JAhU

Both Sora no Manimani and Hitohira are school life anime with school clubs and a hint of romance. In both of those a student joins a club which he\she is not exactly suited for. If you liked one of those anime, you'll most likely like the other as well.

Ouran High School Host Club

Ouran High School Host Club

Ouran High is a school for the extremely wealthy or, in Haruhi's case, the extremely talented. But no amount of talent will help when Haruhi accidentally drops an eight million yen vase in a music room. The vase was the property of Ouran High School Host Club, a group of attractive young men who, for a fee, provide their time and affections for their lovesick clientele: the female students. Fascinated by this strange new specimen, a poor and clumsy commoner, they force Haruhi to work for them until the debt is repaid; but they get a lot more than they bargained for...

Both of these shows focus on students who are very passionate about their school clubs. They take place in a school environment, both are comedy, and both have a small amount of romance between members.

AirCommodore

While the subjects of the jokes in Ouran and Sora no Manimani were different, the visual humor was identical. Chibi-fied characters and exaggerated facial expressions (while included in most comedy anime series) were strikingly similar.

Also, they both revolve around the day-to-day lives of a high school club, and include light romance, comedy, and some parodies (especially Ouran).

Toradora reminded me a lot of Sora no Manimani. Both of those are high school romance series, though Sora no Manimani was more of a "slice of life" seres than Toradora. Both feature a "nice guy" who is the love interest of 3 (somewhat clithe) girls. Since they are similar, if you liked one of those, the other one might be worth checking out.

P.S. Sora no Manimani lacks a conclusion since the anime covers only half of the story.

Doomoo

These anime are similar in that they deal with two normal teens. Both have a male lead who doesn't really like the female lead in the begining but they grow closer and closer over time. They also both have at least one other female trying to get with the male lead. Toradora is much more well fleshed out in gerneral but if you enjoyed Toradora you will like Sora no Manimani too. And if you liked Sora no Manimani you will absolutely love Toradora.
