It's the first day of middle school for Akari, and the enthusiastic girl is determined to reinvent her personality and have tons of fun in the process. Along with her friends, mischievous Kyouko, serious Yui, and adorable Chinatsu, the girl joins the Amusement Club, a group for students who just want to hang out and joke around! Over the year, the girls befriend upperclassmen, impersonate their favorite magical girl characters, and develop crushes... sometimes even on each other!
After her grandmother dies, thirteen year-old Kana Nakamachi runs away from home convinced her absent parents will sell her. She tries to find a job, but with nowhere willing to hire a girl of her age without parental consent, she is back at square one. Then, to make matters worse, a young girl called Yume crashes her bicycle into Kana and knocks her unconscious! Following this chance encounter, Kana learns of a job vacancy at the newspaper company that Yume works for and quickly applies. Now Kana has secured herself a live-in job delivering newspapers along with her new co-workers: lively Yume; quiet Yuki; drunken and perverted Haruka; money-hungry Hinata; and grade school deputy manager, Saki. From memorizing her paper route to learning how to ride a bicycle to fixing her terrifying smile, Kana’s new life has only just begun.
Cute girls doing cute things and both have a lovely yuri tone to them. Kanamemo has no schooling elements to it but both are sure to make you dawww and laugh at what happens between the characters.
Teenager girls, cute, slice of life, and yuri themes. Both are full of Moe, and have a cheerful and upbeat tone. If you liked one, you will almost definitely like the other imo.
Both anime are made by the same studio, share the same director, character designer and audio guy, so you can probably see where i'm going with this.
The shows are very similar, the character deigns and colour palette are pretty much identical in each, both follow a group of girls in what is essentially a club like environment, and the comedy can be similar at times.
But, although the comedy is similar, the jokes land more often in Love Lab. Where Yuru Yuri grows stale after a couple of episodes of shallow characters telling the same recycled jokes, Love Lab has characters that are more interesting, funnier and more varied. If you enjoyed one, the chances are pretty high that the other will be up your street too.
Both are comedy slice-of-life shows focusing on a group of moe girls. Both contain shoujo-ai hints that doesn't really go further than hints.
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.
These two anime go great together, with a cute chibi art style and similar humour, as well as lots of (subtle in Lucky Star) yuri. Both anime are slice of life about a group of weird girls who like to hang out and have fun.
Yuru Yuri and Lucky Star follow a similar sketch comedy/school format that focuses around the development of the central characters. There's definitely overlap between the two shows in terms of character archetypes and character interactions. The significant difference is the style of humor, Yuru Yuri being more character and situational based vs. Lucky Star's allusion and reference based humor.
Ahh, the life of an elementary school student. Though Chika, Matsuri, Miu and Ana should focus on schoolwork, they’d much rather have fun instead. Whether it’s outings with 20-year-old-chain-smoker Noboe, holding each other hostage or learning to speak English with Ana’s foreign-born skills, there’s never a dull moment in the life of the girls. Join this cute quartet as they do cute (and often devious) things in cute and quirky ways!
Yuru Yuri is what you get when the girls from Ichigo Mashimaro grow up a little more. Yuru Yuri adds in some fun yuri tones but both shows are still the same with cute girls doing cute things in and out of school. Try one if you liked the other.
Both animes essentially boil down simply to "cute girls doing cute things." If the cast of Strawberry Marshmallow were a little older, they'd probably fit right in to Yuru Yuri. Strawberry Marshmallow's Miu, to me, is almost identical to Yuru Yuri's Kyoko. Also, they both have a slight Yuri undertone... if you're into that...
Ten-year-old genius Chiyo, animal-loving Sakaki, loudmouth Tomo, athletic Kagura, weight-conscious Yomi and dim-witted Osaka are six friends who share laughs, good times, and a high school homeroom. With scary (and sometimes perverted) teachers, school festivals, penguin suits and general hilarity abounding, you can be sure that there's never a dull day in the life of one of these students!
Oh, come on, they stole the hairstyle gag!
Ok, just kidding. But seriously, Yuru Yuri is just Azumanga with more moe and yuri, and without Osaka. Aside from that, they may be related: they have a very similar style, characters and jokes; they need no plot and just amuse the viewers with ridiculously cute girls goofing around in and out their school.
Azumanga is probably much better, since it is less repetitive and more random, but both have their charm and are really good to relax with a smile.
