Slayers

Slayers

Meet Lina Inverse, a mighty sorceress who fights evil in the name of... greed, gluttony and black magic?! When she meets Gourry, a swordsman whose skill with the blade is rivaled only by his stupidity, Zelgadis, a grumpy sorceror who's been turned into a golem, and Rezo, a priest known for his benevolence (with a dark secret), you know her adventures are just beginning!

masquerade

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.

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya

The eccentric Suzumiya Haruhi wants nothing more than to meet aliens, time travelers and espers… but she’ll have to settle for the everyday Kyon instead! Along with the mysterious Itsuki and the vacant Mikuru, the duo forms the SOS Brigade – a club whose mission is to discover the mysteries of the world. Armed with a razor sharp wit and a skill for manipulation, Haruhi will stop at nothing to have fun at all costs, even at the expense of Mikuru’s dignity!

Theta

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.

Singan

- same director;

- same 80's character designs;

- same 80's comedy with a total lack of common sense.
