Both Slayers and Urusei Yatsura are side-cracking comedies. They feature a random, slap-stick style of humor that keeps both shows unpredictable and constantly entertaining. Both shows also have their serious moments (Slayers more so than Urusei Yatsura) but always lighten a serious scene by throwing in a sudden comment or character entrance to lighten the mood as quickly as possible. Any fan of comedy will enjoy both of these shows.

Urusei Yatsura and Melancholy of Haruhi Suzimiya are both lighthearted school comedies full of aliens, and strange occurrences. Both of these anime feature powerful female protagonists who only seem to cause trouble for the unwilling recipients of their affections, though for very different reasons.
