This is the story of a typical family in Japan and their typical lives. Made up of a father, a mother, a brother, and sister Mikan, the Tachibanas always find themselves in the midst of various and wacky misadventures. Whether it's Mikan and her mother going on a frustrating shopping trip, debating the merits of a high-class bento, trying out new exercise devices or convincing mother to buy a new air conditioner, there's never a dull day in the life of the Tachibanas!
Several months after their New Years' live performance, the light music club has returned to Sakura High for a new school year. Now seniors in Sawa-chan's homeroom class, Yui, Mio, Ritsu and Mugi commence their final year as high school students. While many others would fret about their entrance examinations, the Keion Bu have more important things on their minds, be it shopping for shelves, cleaning out the storage room or that age old problem of trying to recruit new members. But while there's music, snacks and school trips aplenty, one question still remains... will the girls be able to leave their mark on the school before they graduate?
Self-professed lover of all things small and cute, Souta Takanashi finds himself dragooned into working at the Wagnaria family restaurant by the diminutive and vivacious Poplar Taneshima. Though the pay is reasonable and the clientele polite, the high school student is often at his wits' end when dealing with the quirky staff. If the indifferent and street-tough manager, katana-carrying floor chief, and terminally weak Poplar weren't enough, Souta frequently fears for his life, as every encounter with the violently androphobic Inami ends in injury. How long can he survive before the combined stress and harm do him in?
If these two series don't have any similarities in terms of plot and settings, they're both among the very best and most effective slice-of-life comedies ever made. Additionnally, both Nobue and Souta have a weird fetish for cute girls (not quite the lolicon fetish though, since it mostly stays on the safe side). The artwork and character designs are also very similar (Nobue and Kyouko both look pretty much the same), so if you watched and enjoyed any of the two shows, you'll definitely like the other.
It's the first day of middle school for Akari, and the enthusiastic girl is determined to reinvent her personality and have tons of fun in the process. Along with her friends, mischievous Kyouko, serious Yui, and adorable Chinatsu, the girl joins the Amusement Club, a group for students who just want to hang out and joke around! Over the year, the girls befriend upperclassmen, impersonate their favorite magical girl characters, and develop crushes... sometimes even on each other!
Kanaka, Saki and Ayuko are three girls who, as fate would have it, meet each other just before starting high school. Kanaka accidentally bumps into Ayuko, ruining the girl's ice cream cone, and their friendship soon follows! Together, the trio navigates high school life, whether giving each other nicknames, racing each other to class, or just having fun.
