And more importantly, how will she deal with the secrets she finds about him?
Kodocha and Strawberry Marshmallow...sigh..are both really funny. Kodocha is more upbeat than Strawberry though. But I can guarantee you'll like Kodocha.
Small children getting their kicks from bizarre games and beating each other to the ground - what could be more amusing? Although the animation of Komocha is certainly dated by todays standards, overlook this and you will be rewarded with a very funny, heart warming show. And if you haven't yet seen Mashimaro, then get on it! Right now! Omocha fans will definitely love it.
Eighteen-year-old Aida Yurume has moved to Tokyo to prepare for her entrance exams. She slowly finds her way to Maison de Wish, her new home away from home; and there, she meets her new housemates Kumi, Sae and Matsukichi. Together, the quartet participates in a variety of slow-paced adventures, from shooting off a solitary firework to deciding who will clean out a moldy rice cooker. Whether it’s trying to escape the heat or hiding under a kotatsu, Aida will experience many things with her new friends at Maison de Wish.
Ichigo Mashimaro and Yurumates are two peas in a pod. They're both slow-paced slice of life tales with randomness that isn't too quirky or too spastic. I didn't really enjoy either, but can see why fans of one would enjoy the other.
These two shows both share the easy going slice of life feel along with bits of random thrown in. The jokes are frequent and both casts have similar personality traits/quirks that make the show all the more enjoyable.
Saio Private High School has a long tradition of quality education. However, like many other schools its enrollment and traditions are failing. School is no longer a necessity in the path to quality employment and for that reason, many teenagers are choosing to skip it entirely; this isn’t the case with the newly-transferred Manabi. She may be a whirlwind of humor and vision with her motto of “go straight forward”, but Manabi has the drive to bring the students of this small school both a new understanding of its purpose, and possibly a new joy in life.
Both series are cute, funny, and fun slice-of-life shows based around a small group of girls who are just enjoying life and hanging around with friends. The biggest differences are that Manabi Straight! is a school-life show, and the characters are technically older (not that they really look or act older).
So much moe, so little time. If you like slice of life anime about cute girls then both of these are worth checking out, though Strawberry Marshmallow is generally more comic.
In a remote area of the countryside lives Binchou-tan: a pint-sized and carefree girl who takes odd jobs in a nearby town whenever she is running low on rice. Her bus rides take place within the talons of a soaring bird and her everyday tasks are quiet and uneventful; but her friends make every day a fun surprise. With two pink-haired sisters, a lonely affluent girl and the televised musings of the strange muffin-like Pukashu, Binchou-tan will live her life one happy day at a time!
Ichigo Mashimaro and Binchou-tan are both ungodly amounts of "cute", and are about literally nothing. Ichigo has a little more spunk to it and occasionally focuses on more mature themes, while Binchou-tan is flat out cute and aimed at children. You'd definitely like one if you liked the other.
Fifth grade is a time for learning and growing and... getting into a whole mess of trouble! Class 5-2 is a "typical" fifth-grade class whose members always seem to be up to something. The leaders of their group are Ryota and Chika - Ryota's childhood friend who has a crush on him that she can’t seem to confess. While Chika continues on, remaining a close and valued friend, Ryota continues to be a typical boy who is oblivious to her feelings. Furthermore, he can’t seem to stay out of trouble with the ladies! Different situations keep their lives busy during school – everything from loose teeth to getting locked in the PE storage room. School is much more enjoyable when you are young and full of dreams!
With both Ichigo Mashimaro (Strawberry Marshmallow) and Kyo no Go no Ni (Today in Class 5-2) we take a lighthearted glimpse into adolescence. The main difference between the two being that in Ichigo Mashimaro, the main focus of the series is in extra curricular activities, while the episodes of Kyo no Go no Ni take place almost exclusively in class. Even considering this dichotomy, the two series share a similar sense of comic timing that pushes you into the chuckle early because you know the punch line is just around the bend.
