Azumanga Daioh

Azumanga Daioh

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!

Azumanga is the classic school life comedy about girls doing nothing - Aiura is another lighthearted romp in the same vein, albeit less random and silly. If you liked one, try out the other. 

Bronia Bronia says...

Aiura is a lot like Azumanga Daioh with a smaller cast and shorter episodes. Both have character focused humor- as in the cast is absolutely full of weirdos. If you like either show, then look no further!

Brad Brad says...

If you're after some school life comedy about girls doing nothing then look no farther than these two shows. Aiura differs from Azumanga Daioh in that it's a short series, but if you liked one then chances are you will find the other entertaining enough.

The similarities between Aiura and Azumanga Daioh are apparent almost immediately, but there is more than just funny moments shared between high school girls in these stories.  Sure both will bring about genuine laughter, but it's the lack of any substantial plot or climactic moment that actually adds to these stories. Despite the short length of Aiura's episodes, it is able to capture the basics of school life in a very identifiable way. It almost feels like these are the moments that are happening before, after, or possibly alongside larger unseen events, and in many ways that mirrors the daily lives of many people (high school girl or not). The longer episode and series length of Azumanga Diaoh allows for more characters and depth overall, but the premise is still the navigation of high school life and the randomness that comes along with that. Both series are lighthearted, refreshing, and will likely leave you both satisfied and wanting more.

both of them both have the school setting, with the characters forging a stronger and stonger friendship as the story line progresses.

hamletsmage hamletsmage says...

Similarities: School girls living their daily lives, having fun, and having sometimes having adventures. There's different personalities and temperaments, but these friends always stick together.

differences: Azumanga is longer, both in run time per episode and episode count. Aiura has a smaller cast and less crazy adventures. 

But, the comedy and the interactions between the girls are the main selling points for this recommendation. 

Nicknames Nicknames says...

Both are comedy shows which focus on the daily lives of a group of school girls and their silly antics. There's also no overarching plot in either series, so fans of one will definitely enjoy the other.

I think that if you liked either one of these anime you will like the other because they are about similar things 3 girls in school getting into a multiple of things. Also I think some of the characters they used are pretty similar in their personality. i.e. Saki = Yui

They are both comedy and school life so I think that you would enjoy both (even though Aiura is only 4 minutes long). 

RazzlDazzl RazzlDazzl says...

Aiura is practically a short version of Yuyushiki. They both aired at the same time too. They're both great; if you liked one, check out the other.

ZEROibis ZEROibis says...

4-koma with simular paces and character design. They both also have simular types of humor. Lastly the 3 main characters in each of the two series are simular as well. The only ding on Aiura is it is not very long.

ChalamiuS ChalamiuS says...

Both Aiura and Yuyushiki focus on a cast of three girls in a school/slife of life setting with comedy. There's also a fair number of similarities between the two sets of girls. They both have one mostly serious girl that plays the straight man in most of the jokes, one goof and one slightly goofy girl.

Aiura is a short series with a total runtime of 48 minutes, Yuyushiki is a full-length series (12 eps).

If you enjoy school-life comedy with cute girls and you enjoyed one of these series you'll surely enjoy the other.

XMrNiceguyX XMrNiceguyX says...

Both are short series with a similar iyashikei (therapeutic / barely any conflict) and feature a cast of all females doing comedic school things. Additionally, there are some slight hints of shoujo-ai in both, although this aspect is more prominent in Inugami-san to Nekoyama-san. 

Main difference is tempo. Inugami-san is much much quicker than Aiura and the characters in Aiura have a bit more personality to them than the Inugami-san characters

hamletsmage hamletsmage says...

Both of these short episode slice of lifes feature high school girls with vastly different personalities. Instead of a lot of situational gag humor, the comedy comes from the girls' different opinions on various school topics. Both are fairly laid back anime, short, and contain an almost entirely female cast. 

Mig you're looking for a relaxing slice of high school, give these two a try. 

ChalamiuS ChalamiuS says...

Both Aiura and Inugami-san to Nekoyama-san are short comedies with a female cast that take place (mostly) in a school setting.

The comedy in Inugami-san to Nekoyama-san is a lot more fast-paced than the comedy in Aiura and focuses a lot on the shoujo-ai relationship between Inugami-san and Nekoyama-san.

If you enjoyed the comedy in Aiura you'll probably enjoy the fast-paced comedy in Inugami-san to Nekoyama-san and vice versa.

Hyakko

Hyakko

Kamizono Academy is so spacious that transfer student Ayumi Nonomura and long time resident Tatsuki Iizuka find themselves lost together in the corridors.

Hyakko and Aiura are two school life, lighthearted comedies that don't stray too far into the side of slapstick. If you liked one, do try out the other.

HasseRovdjur HasseRovdjur says...

Both are pretty similar school life comedies that focus a lot on character interaction instead of slapstick. Fans of either might want to check the other out.

Strawberry Marshmallow

Strawberry Marshmallow

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!

While dealing with kids of different ages, both are lighthearted schoolkid comedies that are fairly slow paced. 

ChalamiuS ChalamiuS says...

Both of these series are fluffy slice of life comedies that involve young people that still go to school. The main difference between these two shows is that the cast in Strawberry Marshmallow is a lot younger. 

But if you enjoy school life comedy with cute girls and pretty art you'll enjoy either of these.

Lucky Star

Lucky Star

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.

The animes are both comedy about school girls. Lucky star is alot lengthier, but Aiura is still a fun watch despite its short length!

zetazach zetazach says...

Both anime are about young, cute ladies who go through their comical lives at high school. While Lucky Star is filled with references of other series, Aiura is solely focused on their life.

XMrNiceguyX XMrNiceguyX says...

The main similarity between these two series is the cast of characters. The number of characters which have paralells in this series is massive and the interactions are of the similar type of school life short gag type. All main and most supporting characters are female and there are some very slight shoujo-ai influences in both series.

Main difference is that the pacing in Yuru Yuri is somehow slightly higher than Aiura despite the difference in episode length (you'd expect Aiura to be high octane due to the episode lenght, but it's slower).

Bubbas Bubbas says...

Same random comedy with Girls, but Aiura got no shoujo-ai sadly. Yuru Yuri episodes are longer but the style of comedy is the same

hamletsmage hamletsmage says...

Both of these slice of life anime are short episode and involve a group of school girls. Unlike a lot of other anime that fall into this category, these two don't rely on a lot of random gag humor. They are more about glimpses into the girl's school life. If low-key slice of life is what you're wanting more of, try this suggestion. 

ChalamiuS ChalamiuS says...

Both Go! Go! 575 and Aiura deal with a group of three girls that go to school together and do various things. Both of them are slice of life shows but Aiura also has elements of comedy.

Both of these anime are about girls that are just entering high school. As both anime are short episode, each episode is like a peek into the girls' daily lives. The art style of both is decidedly moe, as well. So, if you liked one, try out the other. 

AngelBeatsYui AngelBeatsYui says...

Both stories follow a group of girls in their everyday activities with a hint of moe, both are short series that could easily be completed within an hour. They are both focus' on the comedy with girls element and I believe if you liked one you should try out the other xx

Aiura's animation, style, comedy, and cute personalities all harken to K-On's 'cute girls doing funny things' style of comedy. If you're a fan of K-On! and well done slice-of-life comedy, I'm sure you'll enjoy Aiura.
