Aside from the obvious fact that both shows are about cute girls doing cute things together, the two shows actually have quite similar feels to them. They're both first and foremost friendship comedies, with similar styles of humour. They both have a tendancy to switch to silly faces and stretchy characters, and both have some amazing cuts of animation from time to time.

Despite being quite different plotwise, these two have a very similar feel and aesthetic due to the same directing choices and animation techniques used (e.g. constant\spontaneous movements done by the characters, elaborate\detailed facial expressions) in addition to featuring similar humor and character archetypes (e.g. ojou-sama).

Not because of the art style.

but because they are a comedy and with a somewhat same characters behind it.

Cute girls do cute things together, that's pretty much what these anime are about but both are equally enjoyable. Both are set in a similar setting and have a lot of comedy elements, the main difference really is the fact Anne-Happy uses how unlucky the characters are to create comedy whereas Sansha Saanyou is using a more general approach to comedy. Both have a light story with likeable characters. Therefore I believe if you liked one of these series you should check out the other.

Do you like the cute girls doing cute things theme in either of these anime? Then you might want to check out the other as that is pretty much the whole premise of both of these series, random comedy moments and a fun cast of characters...as well as a slight moe undercoat. Both shows follows a small group of girls in their lives in school and so on. If you liked one of these series then maybe you should check out the other xx

Both are light hearted high school comedies with wacky characters that get up to all manner of hijinks. They differ slightly in tone (This Art Club Has a Problem! has a large romance component), but the biggest similarity is that both are unnecessarily well animated in the best possible way, with both of them having some of the best cuts of their respective seasons in almost every episode.

Hinako Note

Hinako Note

Sakuragi Hinako has a hard time talking with others. In order to get over her paralyzing shyness, Hinako leaves her home in the country because she ends up starting school at the high school that has the drama club that she admires and ends up staying at Hitotose-sou. There, she meets Kuina, who loves books and to eat, Mayuki, who’s a bit older but smaller who’s good at cooking, and the quiet landlady with the hot body, Chiaki-san. A cute and fun drama comedy about the former girl who was paralyzed from shyness.

Shows about a girl who makes new friends, resulting in typical "cute girls doing cute things". Also, there's a random short character in both shows who dresses as a maid for no apparently reason. Because anime, that's why!

Yuru Yuri

Yuru Yuri

It's the first day of middle school for Akari, and the enthusiastic girl is determined to reinvent her personality and have tons of fun in the process.

Both anime have group of characters who are different and yet they get together to hang out and do all kinds of fun things. And the comedy in both series are very good quality which would always make you laugh.

K-On!!

K-On!!

Several months after their New Years' live performance, the light music club has returned to Sakura High for a new school year. Now seniors in Sawa-chan's homeroom class, Yui, Mio, Ritsu and Mugi commence their final year as high school students. While many others would fret about their entrance examinations, the Keion Bu have more important things on their minds, be it shopping for shelves, cleaning out the storage room or that age old problem of trying to recruit new members. But while there's music, snacks and school trips aplenty, one question still remains... will the girls be able to leave their mark on the school before they graduate?

I agree

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. However, 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 will 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!

KINMOZA! Pretty Days

KINMOZA! Pretty Days

The school festival is on the horizon and something is off with Shinobu. She says she's been very sleepy in the mornings lately, and it seems she has pushed herself too hard working on the scripts and costumes for their class play. Alice and Youko, who are in another class, notice her circumstances.
