Asai Mugi's everyday life is very much impacted by a singular problem: she suffers from extreme shyness. Her sole friend Touyama Kayo would like to help her out as they've just entered high school, but Mugi's shyness is the sort that steals her voice entirely. It is too bad for Mugi that a freak shout on her part attracted the attention of Nono Ichinose. Nono is on a mission to save her Drama Research Society, and she isn't prepared to accept shyness as excuse from on-stage performances! With a small group of close friends to encourage and educate her, Mugi will be given a chance to be more than she is now. But, can someone so terribly shy really become a stage actress in just a few short months?
Both anime involve a main female lead, who is very shy. She currently goes to school, and has little to no friends, although she does have that one friend who is more outgoing than herself. During the show, the main character focuses on trying to get out of her shell and be more outgoing.

In present day Japan, the life of a school girl is never dull. The easily-bored Konata never finds time to study because of her otaku habits, which frustrates hard-working Kagami to no end. On the other hand, laid-back Tsukasa always manages to go with the flow, while Miyuki is concerned with keeping her status as resident know-it-all. Join these four girls as they muse and meander their way through everyday events such as eating chocolate cones, doing homework, gaming, and trips to the beach galore.
Ken Kubo is a normal man with a normal job who is besotted in a normal way with a female friend. But life turns distinctly abnormal when he meets an otaku, Tanaka, and is indoctrinated into the obscure world of anime, model guns, and garage kits. As Kubo finds himself shunned by those he cares about, he becomes only more determined to evolve into the ultimate being - the Otakuking! But Kubo is not the only one coming to terms with society. While he strives to mould the world into a perfect haven for people like him, otaku all across Japan are laying bare their strange, lonely lives for the first time… and it’s not a pretty sight.
There is an awkward moment in both of these titles that it really brings home the uncomfortableness of Otaku, and socially inept people.
Watmote really delves into it with situations, while Otaku no video does it with some interviews with real life shut-ins.
Both shows will not always leave you feeling uplifted. But in the end it can feel like someone is making a personal note to others who have these social roadblocks.
Staz isn’t what you’d call a traditional vampire. He’s fascinated by human culture - especially anime, manga and video games - and unlike his brethren, he has no interest in sucking people dry. As a prominent street boss in the demon world, Staz has never desired to go to to the human world. But when a human girl accidentally wanders into his territory, is eaten by a carnivorous plant and comes back as a ghost, Staz makes a life-changing decision: he’ll help resurrect this lovely lady any way he can, even if it means heading to Earth! But the path won’t be easy, what with having no idea how to complete the task and his own laziness standing in the way.
Although the overall plot is EXTREMELY different, if you're looking for a similar art style and some otaku references, you should enjoy the other. The character designs are similar, such as Tomoki and Staz. The first thing I thought of was the other character when I saw this anime. The overall feel of a somewhat dark comedy is present in both anime, so check out the other if you enjoyed one.
To the rest of the world, Umaru is kind, smart, and the perfect high school student. But her brother, Taihei, knows the truth: at home, she's a bratty, slovenly, lazy girl who eats junk food, plays video games, and throws tantrums when Taihei won’t buy her manga or do what she wants! Now, in addition to working full time to support their household, Taihei must do all of the cooking, cleaning and shopping while Umaru enjoys her carefree days as an unabashed, yet secretive, otaku.
Both anime involve an otaku girl who stays home all of the time, playing video games, watching anime and snacking. Both girls do not have many friends, and actually cherish the time they have with the little friends they do have; both main characters have a close relationship with their brother. The main character in Watamote is socially awkward and doesn't really have friends. In Himouto, it's not the main character, but another character who is socially awkward and doesn't really have friends. Nor does she know how to make them, she also happens to freak people out and scare them, due to her awkwardness.
