Cromartie High School

Cromartie High School

At Cromartie High, it’s tough being a delinquent -- a fact that do-gooder Takashi Kamiyama intimately understands. When he’s not engaging in contests of strength and rival gang wars, Kamiyama can also be found submitting punny jokes and planning his own rise to fame within the delinquents’ ranks, and that’s just the beginning! With friends like robotic Mechazawa, a giant gorilla, a hairy man from the 80s named Freddie and a clan of delinquents with mohawks that flow in the wind, how can anyone not enjoy high school?

When normal life turns... weird. That's the best way to describe Yakitate and Cromartie. Normal subjects like school and bread get put way past the horizon (nevermind over the top). Uber random funny moments can be found in both anime.

Di Gi Charat

Di Gi Charat
  • TV (16 eps x 5 min)
  • 1999

One day, Dejiko, Puchiko and the strange ball-shaped Gema-Gema crash land their UFO in the middle of Akihabara. Without a single yen to their name they have nowhere to go, but following an unexpected and generous offer from the manager of a nearby store, the trio begin working at the shop in exchange for renting the room upstairs. Alongside Dejiko’s self-confessed rival Rabi-en-Rose, as well as a mysterious bear that has mastered the ability to appear happy, sad, depressed and angry all at once, the insanity is only just beginning! From shooting window shoppers with Dejiko’s Laser Eye Beam and the appearance of a bizarre farting impostor, to a sudden attack on the city by Godzilla, life at Gamers is certainly livening up.

Yakitate has less of the cuteness and hyper factor, but the randomness of the humor is quite similar between these two anime.

Excel Saga

Excel Saga

F City, F Prefecture: the battleground where good and evil have finally chosen to decide once and for all who will rule the world…or at least that's the general idea! Neither side seems up for the task, as surviving the brutality of everyday life is enough of a chore. On the side of evil is the organization of Across, its only member the loudmouthed and abrasive Excel who struggles just to put food in her stomach; on the side of good, three disenfranchised, unemployed bachelors whose only pursuit in life is romance. Add in alien invasions, jungle warfare, and Mexican immigrant laborers to Japan, and this war doesn't seem likely to be ending soon!

(1) Both are hilarious and very random. (2) Both have afro-groove elements. (3) Both neglect the isolation and strictness of scenario-orientation and allow themselves to "communicate" with audience - authors don't pretend thier world being too realistic. Exploiting such freedom they have very agile scenarios spiced by agility of imagination with possibilities that are possible only in mental reality. That's why their architectures are less like static constructions with tough fundaments and risks of collapsing in some critical sections, but more are like rivers, having no problems with any obstacles - water will always find it's path and stay cool.

Flame of Recca

Flame of Recca

Recca dreams of one day becoming an excellent ninja, but in this day and age ninjas are only talked about in history lessons. While playing his ninja games, he meets a mysterious woman that reveals to Recca his past, his bond with the powerful Hokage clan, and the special flame power that resides within him. Meanwhile, the evil Kurei has plans to gather the madougu from the Hokage clan so that he may take control over the elemental powers, but Recca is determined to master his flame and stop Kurei’s evil plans. Does he have what it takes to live up to his own expectations and put a stop to Kurei himself?

If you like tournament-style story lines where the main character has to fight against seemingly impossible odds and cliché opponents, then you will enjoy both Flame of Recca and Yakitate.

Fullmetal Alchemist

Fullmetal Alchemist

Once upon a time, two brothers passed the happy days of their childhood by studying alchemy, which is governed by the equal transfer principle: an eye for an eye -- you can't get more than you give. But these brothers tried to defy that law, and a horrific accident resulted. Now, the older brother, Edward, is called the Full Metal Alchemist because of his metal limbs, and the younger, Alphonse, is a soul without a body, trapped within the confines of an automaton. Together they search for the power to restore themselves, to find the lives they lost so long ago...

In both series there is a character striving to reach some goal. If you liked the humor in Full Metal Alchemist, I'm fairly sure you'll like the humor in Yakitate!! Japan too. Keep in mind though that only the humor and the main character are the real similarites. If you ar elooking for a similar story for either series, try some other.
