Synopsis:

Kotobuki Ran has a whole family line of relatives working in the police force. Her aunts and uncles are officers, her dad is a police chief, and even her brother is a working policeman. Ran has no interest in being a policewoman; she has problems of her own, and her own style of dealing with them - the GAL way! Friends need boyfriends, shoes need to be bought, and nails need to be done. Despite Ran's wreckless and troublesome behavior, Ran has a strong sense of justice, and she's always willing to help her friends out of trouble. With her two best friends Miyu and Aya, they live life as GALs, building romance and creating memorable fun!

If you liked Super Gals, you would also like Kodocha because both series are based on crazy, athletic, fair and lovely characters. The stories center around these young girls and their daily hilarious lives. The stories progress around these crazy characters and their friends' points of view.The music in these anime is very amusing; you can start doing para para dance after watching these series. If you want to watch another entertaining, romantic and well done anime, I recommend you to watch Kodocha.

KiraRin

If hyperactive, spoilt females are your cup of tea, then I think you may just enjoy both of these shows. Although Komocha tackles some slightly more adult topics, GALS is similar in that childhood romance is one of the main plot lines.

As I pointed out in my GALS review, it seems that Komocha is the younger sister of this more grown up and teenage show.

Azumanga Daioh

Azumanga Daioh

Ten-year-old genius Chiyo, animal-loving Sakaki, loudmouth Tomo, athletic Kagura, weight-conscious Yomi and dim-witted Osaka are six friends who share laughs, good times, and a high school homeroom. With scary (and sometimes perverted) teachers, school festivals, penguin suits and general hilarity abounding, you can be sure that there's never a dull day in the life of one of these students!

If you liked Azudai and are okay with looking past large amounts of femininity (and can get past the word femininity) then this show will not dissapoint in the end.

Also, if you liked Super gals, then you'd like azudai for being the best comedy/slice of life out there.

However, the main seperation between the two is that Azudai aims towards boys and Super girls aims towards girls. As long as you don't mind that, you can really enjoy either anime.

CLAMP School Detectives

And thus, after saving a sad old woman, Nokoru decides to create the CLAMP School Detective Agency; their goal, to help out any maiden in distress!

Both shows are about a trio of loyal friends centered around a comically flamboyant leader with a passion for justice.  They are both basically lighthearted shows with a given episode dealing with a single mystery and a group of romantic sub-plots running through the course of the series.

Detective Conan

Detective Conan
  • TV (735+ eps)
  • 1996 - ?

Shinichi Kudo is a famous teenage detective who idolizes Sherlock Holmes and solves difficult cases with ease. One day, after a fun day at the theme park with his childhood friend Ran, Shinichi witnesses something suspicious and is knocked unconscious. What’s worse, he’s forced to take a deadly, experimental drug that shrinks his body to the age of seven. To protect himself and his loved ones from those who may want to finish the job, Shinichi dons the new name Conan Edogawa and moves in with Ran, whose father is a famous detective, in hopes of closing cases that can lead him to the men in black. But little does Shinichi know just how dangerous these men, and their cause, are...

Despite its first impression as a harmless highschool anime, Super GALS! deals with serious themes such as substituted dating, theft, blackmail, stalkers and harrassment that Kotobuki Ran must set right.

Detective Conan is similar in that it usually starts out with Conan in an ordinary situation that suddenly turns dramatic, usually murder, with Conan having to solve the case.

Both Fruits Basket and SuperGals! mix a high school hijinx of comedy with slice-of-life drama that you can only get from a shojo-manga. While SuperGALS! tends to be more centered around Ran and her five other friends, she's the connector like Tohru, the main character in Fruits Basket who supports at least a dozen characters.
