Binchou-tan

Binchou-tan

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.

Kyou no Go no Ni

Kyou no Go no Ni

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.

Moetan

Moetan

Ink Nijihara, who does very well in her high school English class, has a crush on her classmate Nao; but as she is both shy and clumsy, she finds herself unable to get closer to him. Furthermore, since he does poorly in English, he does not intend to go to a university, crushing Ink's dreams of going there together with him. Out of the blue, a talking duck who turns out to be a polymorphed (and perverted) wizard exiled from a magic kingdom falls from the sky and lands in front of Ink. He offers her magical powers in return for helping people in need. Ink sees the magical girl transformation as a chance to help Nao with his English without feeling embarrassed about it, and thus she begins her adventures as Magical Teacher Pastel Ink!

Before I go into heavy detail, I recommend fans of Strawberry Marshmallow to watch Moetan. My main reason to stress this is that both shows are heavy on the "kawaii" side of things. Both shows are also short in length (only 12/13 episodes). Even though Moetan has more sexual escapades (although 4chan makes Ichigo Mashimaro seem dirty) and has more of a plot, both shows are enjoyable.

Potemayo

Potemayo

One day, the typical Sunao Moriyama found something not-so-typical in his refrigerator: a small creature between the potatoes and mayonnaise that he dubs Potemayo! Sunao decides to take care of Potemayo and takes her with him everywhere he goes, and as a result Potemayo quickly becomes popular with Sunao's classmates. However, the tranquility of the new friendship is broken with the arrival of another creature from Sunao's fridge – this time a scythe-wielding laser-shooting horned creature he dubs Guchuko. Now, every day brings new adventures and surprises with Potemayo and Guchuko around!

To start, both Ichigo Mashimaro and Potemayo are slice-of-life titles with a touch of "kawaii". Both are also light-hearted and short-length (12/13 episodes each). Now in contrast, Potemayo does not rely solely on jokes and little gimmicks and does not have as much personality as Ichigo, but I still recommend both shows.

School doesn’t have to be boring; for Chiyo and her friends, high school brings no dull moments! Chiyo is asked to bring her video camera to class and make a film to put in a time capsule. Overbearing and obnoxious Tomo just can’t stand to let Chiyo have all the fun though, so she quickly runs off with the camera. From the moment she has control, things are turned upside down in this quiet school. Despite the chaos, all of the girls shine during their short moments of fame. Tomo may be wild, but she manages to perfectly capture the true personalities of everyone on this tape that will be around for years to come... or will it?

Lot of same humour based on adorable girls and their cute antics. Very fun to watch. The charactors are a nice mix of personalities and thier interactions with one another are at times hilarious, insightful & endearing.
