Now plot wise these anime dont compare in the least outside of dealing with yakuza and somewhat making fun of em but when it comes to that fun Japanese humor, priceless facial expressions, great character development, and smooth story telling, thats where the similarities start to shine. If you enjoy one I'm sure you'll enjoy the other.

Hinamatsuri and Back Street Girls GOKUDOLS feature protagonists who are Yakuza who end up in a situation which forces them to take on more than they realize. Both shows are absolutely hilarious, heart warming, and chalk full of lovable characters and interactions. Hinamatsuri is more heartwarming, while BSGG is more about making the best out of an unconventional situation. Both are a great watch.

If you liked Back Street Girls -GOKUDOLS- or Zombieland Saga you will love the other!

They both feature:

  • Unconventional Idols
  • Great music
  • Lovable cast
  • Comedy
  • Strange situation that made them idols
  • Some serious moments that make you love them more

So I would certainly give both a shot!

When you watch both of these anime prepare to see unorthodox depictions of idol groups. Both sets of idols are comprised of individuals you wouldn't expect and are lead by managers who are comically abusive to their idols. Despite not being traditional idols, both groups also strive to be the best musical set they can be. Zombieland has more drama and conflict where Gokudolls is mainly comedy and slapstick. But both anime are great as idol deconstructions, especially if you don't normally like idol shows.

In the rusty and run-down Treasure Town, young orphans in their respective gangs rule the roost and use the landscape as their playground. The violent Black and naïve White are two such orphans who are unafraid of fellow children and Yakuza alike; never have they found a foe who could best them in a battle – until now. A strange man and his even stranger (and seemingly indestructible) henchmen have plans to tear down Treasure Town and erect an amusement park in its place, and they’ll cut down anyone who stands in their way. Can Black and White save their home, and each other?
