Synopsis:

Miss Yukari's high school class is far from average. With ten-year-old genius Chiyo; dim-witted ‘Osaka'; weight conscious Yomi; loud-mouthed and energetic Tomo; and the ultra cool, animal-loving Sakaki, daily life is far from dull. Follow the day-to-day lives of this fun-loving group of girls as they progress through high school. From annual cultural festivals to gambling, from first dreams of the New Year to death-defying road trips, the lives of these students and their teachers are always exciting and new.

Yotsuba&!

Yotsuba&!
  • Vol: 12+; Ch: 85+
  • 2003 - ?

Meet Yotsuba Koiwai, the strangest little girl around. With a mind so straight it's twisted, Yotsuba takes everything in life at face value and sees everything with the eyes of impenetrable innocence. With her laid-back father, Yotsuba moves into a new house and makes new friends - friends whose minds boggle at the wacky and somewhat wise way that Yotsuba lives her daily life!

I'm not recommending Yotsuba just because it is from the same manga-ka, but because they are both light hearted stories with hardly to no plot. They're very enjoyable and funny reads that will brighten your day considerably. 

SilentWarlock

Both coming from the same manga-ka, these lighthearted slice-of-life stories have much the same sense of humor and story-style.  But at the same time they are very different in story and characters (and format, since Azumanga Daioh is a 4-panel style, and Yotsuba is standard manga format).  If you enjoyed either one of these, there's a pretty good chance you'll like the other as well.

animelovexx

Apart from the art being similar, these two have the same style. The two series are both light hearted and care-free, with a lot of randomness. There is not much plot, but both of these have a silly humour which makes it enjoyable.

cassiesheepgirl

Both Azumanga and Yotsuba&! are from the same mangaka, so they both share a similar style of comedy. Both also have adorable and loveable protagonists, and I'd wager that if you liked one, you'll lvoe the other.

HasseRovdjur

The focus of both manga lie on comedy and slice of life. While the comedy in Azumanga is more hyper they're both rooted in daily life and feature great casts with varied characters.

Whitie

Because these are great stories about girls and their everyday life with no fixed plot at all. I really enjoyed by reading them and recommend to read both.

K-On!

K-On!

It's the first day of high school, and plenty of school clubs are doing their best to recruit new members, but for ditzy Yui, none of them seem to fit the bill. However, when she accidentally signs up to join the light music club, Yui begins a hilarious adventure to become a world class guitarist! There's just one problem: she's never played the guitar before in her life! Joined by bassist Mio, drummer Ritsu and keyboardist Tsugumi, Yui and the gang juggle their studies with buying instruments, learning how to read music and even performing in the school festival, all in the hopes of someday becoming a successful band!

Both Azumanga Daioh and K-ON! are 4-panel comedy manga. they both share the same sort of style of comedy, and are relatively slice of life. If you enjoyed one then it is worth checking out the other.

BlackEsper

Azumanga Daioh and K-ON! are both 4-koma series' that focus on a group of high school girls in their daily lives - whilst Azumanga can be a bit wackier and K-ON! can rely too heavily on moe at times, you're bound to enjoy one if you're a fan of the other.

Adventures of the Mini-Goddess

Adventures of the Mini-Goddess
  • Vol: 1

Sometimes when they're bored, Belldandy and her sisters Urd and Skuld shrink themselves down to doll size and have crazy adventures in an oversized world. They befriend a rat named Gan-chan, and have many humorous mini-adventures with ordinary items that are suddenly far from ordinary. Whether it involves building a car out of a paper cup and some buttons or fencing with toothpicks, the mini-goddesses won't let their small size stand in the way of big adventures!

Both series are light-hearted romps, and consist of short strips (as opposed to long stories). If you're in the mood for a light read & liked one series, you'll probably enjoy the other.

Cromartie High School

Cromartie High School

Kamiyama Takashi has just enrolled at Cromartie High School due to a promise with an old friend. There's just one problem: it's a school for delinquents! While Kamiyama automatically feels out of place, it doesn't help that his fellow students aren't just ordinary delinquents; there's a gorilla, a robot, and even a mysterious and silent man affectionately known as Freddie. In a school where having a nickname is a must to be taken seriously, where students eat bunches of pencils and where the delinquent leader of the first year students has a crippling case of motion sickness, there might just be a chance Kamiyama could enjoy his new life at Cromartie!

Content wise, both Azumanga Daioh and Cromartie High School are fairly random high school-based comedies. One focuses on a bunch of cute girls and the other a group of big delinquent boys, so though the subject matter isn't particularly similar, the style of comedy is. Also both of these are more like sketches rather than one long story, so if you like that in your comedy manga and enjoyed one of these, then try the other.

Strawberry Marshmallow

Strawberry Marshmallow
  • Vol: 7+; Ch: 72+
  • 2001 - ?

Life is a fun adventure for sixteen-year-old Nobue Ito, her ‘average' twelve-year-old sister Chika, the mischievous Miu Matsuoka, timid Matsuri Sakuragi and ‘English' Ana Coppola. Together, these five friends assist each other in the most adorable ways possible. Whether they're teaching someone how to swim, helping with summer assignments, preparing a surprise birthday present or shopping for the cutest clothes, these girls always manage to have a good time no matter what the season or occasion.

Both Strawberry Marshmallow and Azumanga Daioh are Slice of life comedy manga. Azumanga is a little more random, but if you liked one then you may well enjoy the other.
