Yakitate and Ninja Nonsense are completely random jokefests. The jokes can range from being just so dumb that they become funny, to being so random and great that you'll remember them forever.

If you enjoy bizarre situations and at least one pun per episode then Polar Bear Cafe and Yakitate!! Japan are similar.

While this may seem like an incredibly bizarre recommendation, bear with me. Both of these series are incredibly cheesy and surprisingly funny. Neither should be taken too seriously in order to get the most enjoyment out of it. Also both have taken two seemingly normal concepts, baking and tennis and turned it into more of a shounen type battle with special moves. If you enjoyed the utter silliness of one, then it's worth watching the other.

Seto no Hanayome

Seto no Hanayome

While visiting his hometown, junior high school student Michishio Nagasumi's life was changed forever when he nearly drowned. Though he was saved by a mermaid named San, there’s a catch -- her family is part of a merfolk mafia, and they abide by a strict rule: If a mermaid is discovered by a man, either he or the mermaid must die. That is, unless the man marries into the family! Faced with such a decision, Nagasumi can only oblige their customs and become a "happy" newlywed. Now, with a new school year around the corner, Nagasumi must find a way to deal with his new bride, keep her true nature a secret, and most importantly, escape inevitable death at the hands of San's over-protective father’s gang!

Though Yakitate Japan and Seto no Hanayome are very different plot-wise (one is about baking bread and the other is about a mermaid mafia), they are both packed with exaggerated humor and silliness. Laughs aside, both series also do a good job of telling a story of successes and failures that will find you cheering for the main character.

Silver Spoon

Silver Spoon

When Yuugo Hachiken enrolled at Ezonoo, an agricultural high school, he had no idea what he was getting himself into. While his classmates revel in the barnyard chores and hard labor, eager to gain skills for their careers, Yuugo is challenged and sometimes downright horrified by the things he’s having to learn, whether he’s corralling stray cows, learning the shocking truth of where chicken eggs come from, or even getting comfortable with riding a horse! Alongside peers such as the lovely Aki, Yuugo will learn all he can about agriculture, making close friends in the process.

Although they focus on different aspects of food production, both shows are about the resolve and hard work that goes into making your dreams come true. They have a similar appreciation towards good food and feature mouth-watering masterpieces you'd like to try for yourself. The outlandish reactions characters have to said masterpieces are what inspired this rec.

The comedy in Silver spoon is a bit low key compared to Yakitate! (which is almost like a sports show about bread making) but both are a fun way to learn something new and are worth your time!
