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.
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!
Both are very funny commidies about cute little girls doing cute things. If you liked one you should read the other.
If you enjoy cute manga about cute girls doing cute things, then both Yotsuba&! and Strawberry Marshmallow will be right up your alley. Though Yotsuba&! is generally funnier with a bolder style of comedy, I think if you like one, you'll enjoy the other.
One hundred and fifty years after its terraforming, the surface of the planet Aqua - formerly known as Mars - is almost completely submerged by water. The town of Neo Venezia, a replica of the old Earth city of Venice, is a city that lives in harmony with the water, and is a popular destination for tourists. Akari Mizunashi is a young girl who dreams of becoming a fully fledged Undine - a gondolier who ferries tourists around the beautiful city. With help from her friends she progresses with her training, discovering more of the many wonders of Aqua and Neo Venezia along the way.

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.
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 K-On! and Strawberry Marshmallow share a similar style of comedy. While Strawberry Marshmallow exhibits more of a slice of life quality, if you enjoyed one you are likely to enjoy the other.
