My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU

My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU

After being turned down by his unrequited crush, Hachiman Hikigaya is determined to live out the rest of his high school life single and socially tuned out to avoid the folly of youth. But Hachiman's resolve is lacking compared to his guidance counselor, a woman determined to change the boy's ways. So, much to his dismay, Hachiman is soon forced to reach out to those around him by joining a club dedicated to serving others. Alongside the cold, but beautiful club president Yukino, eager Yui, and other new friends, Hachiman will try to stomach his new volunteer work and survive his ultimate fear: being involved in a typical high school romantic comedy.

I just get the same vibe from it. With the same type arrogant, sarcastic main charachter like Hachiman.

TurkeyGami TurkeyGami says...

Lots of sarcasm, lots of banter between the lead pair, plenty of drama and warmth in equal measure when all is said and done, but some really down-to-earth representations of trope-ical characters.

iLive4Anime iLive4Anime says...

Well I think they are both similar a little. Both leads kind of have to same aspect I guess. Sorry if you don't agree, but they are both are great animes so yeah. Also My Teen Romantic Comedy SANFU is not really a romance anime per say. 

FullmetalDragon FullmetalDragon says...

Both series have a very similar vibe, with a very similar dynamic between the main characters, despite them being distinct in their own ways.

Dan7g Dan7g says...

Oregairu+supernatural=Bunny-girl SenpaiAtmosphere is pretty simmilar, characters are alike and not olny Physicaly as Mai is Yukino, Tomoe is in a way like Yui. I think if you like one anime you will most likely love other one. and both anime are good.

lightspectra lightspectra says...

Bunny Girl Senpai is basically "Yukino and Hachiman from Oregairu SNAFU go on Haruhi-esque adventures"

keknight keknight says...

Sakuta Azusagawa will remind you of Hachinan Hikigaya, they both have this dark-ish and dismissal for keeping appearences. 

and 

Mai Sakurajima will remind you of Yukino Yukinoshita, they both have this cold personality but will show some really cute expressions or gestures when cornered.

Sakuta is always the guy that ends up having to help or fix things just like Hachiman does. Of course they each deal with their unique problems and events in their own way.

If you like the overall aura and feel of the story and characters these series are a good way to relive that experience with a whole new show and characters.

Very similar, SNAFU is a really good watch as it has the same kind of concept, they are both very good watches and I would reccoment both!

noscope69 noscope69 says...

actually if you watch them side by side, the animes lip sync to each other.

The only thing that's different is the background music. I think I saw somewhere that if you swap out the sounds, you'll actually end up rooting for totally different characters in the end.

NotMyStyle NotMyStyle says...

i like this story.

this anime also have some interesting theory like schodinger cat.

i like theory like that:)

LupusInFabula LupusInFabula says...

Similar story structure, and something about Bunnygirl really scratches that season 3 never nostalgia itch that Haruhi left behind.

alp2va alp2va says...

Both deal with supernatural occurances within a high school setting. Both are highly character-driven and have likeable leads. Haruhi goes more of a comedy route while Rascal is about an equal mix of comedy and romance.

Bakemonogatari

Bakemonogatari

Koyomi Araragi is an aloof boy who holds a strange, supernatural secret which inadvertently leads him to others with similar stories. Gods, spirits and afflictions can be pesky things, taking important memories or causing unusual tendencies – a fact that Koyomi and others are unfortunately aware of. Using the help of an eccentric homeless man, Koyomi is able to help new friends he meets along the way with their own paranormal conundrums…

Rudeboy Rudeboy says...

The series seems to be going in the direction of solving short mystery stories about unexplainable situations called adolescent syndrome. Show really reminds me of the Monogatari series where the main protagonist, Araragi, tries to support his friends in overcoming their inner demons. Funny enough, the interactions between the bunny girl, Mai, and the main protagonist, Sakuta, resembles the interactions between Araragi and Senjougahara. 

mindlord0013 mindlord0013 says...

A modern world with a subtle, surreal supernatural tone.

Both shows focus on short arcs that last a few episodes, focusing on the supernatural problems of a particular individual in a very grounded manner. These problems are based off folklore in the Monogatari series (Phoenix, Monkey's Paw), or phrase a phrase or concept in Bunny Girl Senpai (Schrodinger's Cat was the first arc).

Additionally, the female love interests share some very similar traits.

Both series are visually well done, though Monogatari can get quite surreal and abstract.

TurkeyGami TurkeyGami says...

Both series center around a boy who deals with mysterious goings-on surrounding other adolescents in and around where he lives. The two have similarly witty dialogue and banter between the mains, and similar characterizations in the leads. If you like monogatari's swagger you'll like Rascal's, but be aware they don't have similar visual styles.

LupusInFabula LupusInFabula says...

Very similar vibe and general plot structure. Bake is a bit more intense, for lack of a better term, whereas bunnygirl feels a bit more lax.

8chi 8chi says...

The same kind of strange phenomena happens to the characters in both anime. While kokoro connect revolves around a group of friends, Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai seems to focus on a main duo. The characters in both stories grow and get to know each other as well as themselves better. 

FullmetalDragon FullmetalDragon says...

These shows have almost identical premises, with the same kind of story structure where one 'power' is given a few episodes to play out and then the next one is shown. 

BubChan BubChan says...

Similar conflicts involving paranormal stuff. Like body-swaping and disapperance. Both also have young protagonists.

They both feature and female protagonists that cant be seen by anyone else other than the Male protagonist. Male protagonist also share similarities such as being locked off from reality and they have things they don’t want to face.

Both aren’t your stereotypical romance anime and have a nice message that you can take away from it.

Overall both amazing anime that i suggest u watch
