Etue Etue says...

Shares two voice actresses and both feature heavy shoujo-ai scenes that are not so much hinted as being shoved into your face bluntly. In both anime Yui plays the same role in the group for the most part. 

Brad Brad says...

Both shows are comedies that feature a group of cute school girls doing cute things with each other. The two shows also share a couple voice actresses with their respective main characters. Each of the two shows shove shoujo-ai scenes in your face at any, and every given opportunity, with Yuru Yuri's being more forceful than the more lighthearted Yuyushiki scenes.

Madoka Madoka says...

The two shows both share similar settings in that they are both based on a group of rather cute school girls with a mix of personalities to offer a fun combination and some good comedy. They are both light comedy styled usually focused around  shoujo-ai styles/themes. Both shows are light and mainly focus on the friendship groups/class mates interations with one another offering for some fun comedy.

Gavia Gavia says...

These two have same type of silly humour containing cute girls, shoujo-ai elements and a club that doesn't do anything. They are really similar, so if you like one you should check out the other.

Bronia Bronia says...

They are two very similar shows about a bunch of moe girls not doing a whole lot of anything in particular. The GL subtext is less subtext and more thrown in as obviously as possible as often as possible.

DashDerpy DashDerpy says...

I am only about half way through Yuru Yuri but it already makes me think of Yuyushiki even the opening and ending songs do. Both anime's make me laugh and smile so hope everyone else also enjoys them.

Vic969 Vic969 says...

"Cute girls doing cute things" is what defines a lot of shows, and definitely those two. Both of casts are in a school club, but don't really devote themselves to them - rather than doing club activities, they just have a good time.

drewbear drewbear says...

It is worth noting that both anime have a character named Yui with similar personalities and are voiced by the same actress.

AngelBeatsYui AngelBeatsYui says...

These are both light-hearted series about girls in school! They both contain comedy elements are include a school club of some sort, so they are pretty similar! They are both good if you like a light series or a slightly random series...

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.

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!

DarkEmerl123 DarkEmerl123 says...

Both K-On! and Yuru Yuri involve a group of girls who try to save a club from getting shut down. Well, I guess they just use the club room in Yuru Yuri. Anyway, both series have fairly similar characters, so if you liked the main characters in one, you will probably like the main characters in the other.

CrimsonSunShine CrimsonSunShine says...

If you liked K-on! or Yuru Yuri, you'd more than likely like the other as well. The two series both revolve around a club that often falls behind on the responsible category. Not to mention the shoujou ai sub text in both as well. If you enjoyed either of them, I high recommend the other!

seshiro73 seshiro73 says...

Both animes have a very similar animation style, a main cast of four girls, yuri elements (K-on is obviously subtler with the yuri), and amazing music.If you like one, you will like the other 

W0rmh0leXtreme W0rmh0leXtreme says...

If you liked K-On! or Yuru Yuri, you'd likely enjoy the other too, as they are both quite similar. They both are about a group of girls enjoying their time at school, having many fun and exciting experiences along the way, and many funny moments too. In both, a lot of their time is spent in only a few locations, mainly a club room, so the focus is on the interaction between the characters, rather than on the things that are happening. Both are light hearted, calm and relaxed, except for the bursts of excitement here and there.

Xplayer Xplayer says...

Yuru Yuri is essentially K-on without music. It focuses on clubs comprised of cute girls doing cute things. Both series feature girls with cute personalities, and good humor as the characters play off each other.

ravenrhen ravenrhen says...

Both of them is really funny. Both includes girls in a club with a friend in the student council. I agree on what they say that if you love any one of them you'll surely love the other as well.

snivets snivets says...

After finishing Yuru Yuri, I immediately thought of K-On. These shows are written for the same audience: cute girls, cute things, etc etc. Although they're admittedly low on story substance, both are relaxing, silly, funny, easy to watch, and will make you eat your heart out.

animeandwwefanDXXD animeandwwefanDXXD says...

If you like one youl'l probably love the other, yuru yuri and k-on both have very similar charachters resembling each other e.g. yui, mio, ritsu and asusa in k-on very closely resemble akari, yui, kyoko, and chinatsu in yuri yuri! Both are great, funny, and super kawaii animes!! :D

Brad Brad says...

If you're a fan of cute schoolgirl comedies with lots of bright colours and a dash of yuri then these will most definitely be for you. 

Well, i say "dash", and at least that applies for Yuru Yuri where the whole series just skirts around the issue with lots of implied inter-girl relations, whereas Sakura Trick storms out of the gates with full on tongue gymnastics from the get go. But fans of one will most likely find the other entertaining.

HasseRovdjur HasseRovdjur says...

Both are very light and fluffy school comedies focusing on an all-female cast. Sakura Trick is open with the yuri, whereas it's mostly implied in Yuru Yuri. Fans of either show would do well to check out the other one.

Gavia Gavia says...

These are truly birds of a feather. Both are slice-of-life comedies with moe school girls and shoujo-ai elements.

Fans of one show should check out the other.

Xplayer Xplayer says...

Both anime have similar formats, schoolgirl ensembles with yuri as the driving element. Yuru Yuri is much more toned down on the actual yuri whereas Sakura Trick just goes all in with no shame. If Yuru Yuri is literally "easygoing yuri" Sakura Trick is "2fast2quick" yuri.

ZetsubouKaiji ZetsubouKaiji says...

These are both comedies centered on a group of cute school girls. Neither show has anything in the way of a plot or development. Instead episodes are just a series of comedy sketches with the girls getting into various situations that they need to solve in their unique cute ways.

These are both moe comedies with the only real difference being the yuri relationships are only implied in Yuru, but are shown as full blown kissing in Sakura Trick. 

If you like cute girls doing cute things with a bit of girl on girl relationships and comedy then try either of these shows. 

Grach Grach says...

Both are highly cutesy, warm-and-fuzzy series that take place in a school setting, with a nice slice-of-life feel to them. Both also feature comedy, though YuruYuri's tends to get repetative. They also feature shoujo-ai to some degree, but with YuruYuri's being impled, unlike Sakura Trick.

Tables Tables says...

Both are light-hearted and cute/funny. The only major difference is that Sakura Trick actually has real kisses while in Yuru Yuri they usually happen in Chitose's fantasies or in some character's imagination. But if one liked Yuru Yuri, they're definitely going to like Sakura Trick and vice versa.

AngelBeatsYui AngelBeatsYui says...

A bunch of school girls and Yuri in the anime, these two are definatly very a like. They both follow similar stories about a group of girls and how their relationship grows between the girls. The art style is aimed to be quite cute in both and they seem to both appeal to the same audience, so I think if you liked one you should like the other.

A Channel and Yuru Yuri are both school life comedies that center around a group of girls. They both contain yuri elements, and are animated in a chibi art style.

Cute girls in school doing cute things and both have a lovely yuri tone to them. Both are pretty hilarious and it's pretty fun watching the characters interact with each other in certain situations. Check either title out if you liked the other.

KKKKK KKKKK says...

Both are slice of life comedies centered around girls' school life and have the same kind of feeling. Yuru Yuri is funnier though.

Gavia Gavia says...

Both are school-girl slice-of-life comedies. Both feature plenty cuteness and shoujo-ai elements.

Brad Brad says...

Both shows feature a group of cute high school girls doing cute things, with plenty of yuri mixed into the action for good measure.

Madoka Madoka says...

Both series center around the school life/slife of life comedy genres. Both series use a similar comedy style and a tiny amount of the yuri click, mainly for a added joke, if you have seen one you should know the other is pretty similar in most sences.

Mio010 Mio010 says...

If you liked A-Channel you should watch Yuru Yuri because they're both comedies and have lovely characters.

Well, I enjoy comedies/parodies without romance. I enjoyed both as well so I guess everyone who likes that should give it a go!

Brad Brad says...

Both anime are made by the same studio, share the same director, character designer and audio guy, so you can probably see where i'm going with this.

The shows are very similar, the character deigns and colour palette are pretty much identical in each, both follow a group of girls in what is essentially a club like environment, and the comedy can be similar at times.

But, although the comedy is similar, the jokes land more often in Love Lab. Where Yuru Yuri grows stale after a couple of episodes of shallow characters telling the same recycled jokes, Love Lab has characters that are more interesting, funnier and more varied. If you enjoyed one, the chances are pretty high that the other will be up your street too.

Gavia Gavia says...

Both are comedy slice-of-life shows focusing on a group of moe girls. Both contain shoujo-ai hints that doesn't really go further than hints.

AngelBeatsYui AngelBeatsYui says...

Both are about school girls who both have problems of some sort...they also have quite similar personalities Akari=Maki? Both are very enthusiatic when it comes to their problems. Anyway both include comedy elements and are both light-hearted series. So I think if you liked one of these series you would like the other!

Two very similar shows made by the same studio. If you like one show, you'll almost certainly like the other.

XMrNiceguyX XMrNiceguyX says...

Both are moe-blob shows concerning an all female cast while additionally containing strong shoujo-ai elements. Yuru Yuri has some more going for it in terms of number of characters and their developments, but there are paralels to be found with most of the casts of both shows.

Furthermore, the artstyle (especially for many of the gags) is extremely similar and ventures outside the norm of the shows by overemphasizing or somewhat parodying more established shoujo-ai shows.

Main difference is that Inugami-san to Nekoyama-san is almost exclusively shoujo-ai comedic gags, Yuru Yuri is covering more ground and focusing more explicitly on school related scenarios.

ChalamiuS ChalamiuS says...

Cute girls doing cute things? Check. Shoujo-ai elements? Check.

Both shows also focus a lot on comedy rather than romance, while still integrating romance in a good way!

Nicknames Nicknames says...

Both shows are plotless comedies with a side of shoujo-ai elements. The main difference between them is their lenght. So if you liked yuru-Yuri and want something shorter but with similar characteristics then go ahead and watch Inugami, likewise if you watched Inugami and want someting similar but longer then don't hesitate and watch Yuru Yuri

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.

Suimin Suimin says...

These two anime go great together, with a cute chibi art style and similar humour, as well as lots of (subtle in Lucky Star) yuri. Both anime are slice of life about a group of weird girls who like to hang out and have fun.

Xplayer Xplayer says...

Yuru Yuri and Lucky Star follow a similar sketch comedy/school format that focuses around the development of the central characters. There's definitely overlap between the two shows in terms of character archetypes and character interactions. The significant difference is the style of humor, Yuru Yuri being more character and situational based vs. Lucky Star's allusion and reference based humor.

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!

Yuru Yuri is what you get when the girls from Ichigo Mashimaro grow up a little more. Yuru Yuri adds in some fun yuri tones but both shows are still the same with cute girls doing cute things in and out of school. Try one if you liked the other.

Kumatora Kumatora says...

Both animes essentially boil down simply to "cute girls doing cute things." If the cast of Strawberry Marshmallow were a little older, they'd probably fit right in to Yuru Yuri. Strawberry Marshmallow's Miu, to me, is almost identical to Yuru Yuri's Kyoko. Also, they both have a slight Yuri undertone... if you're into that...

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!

Oh, come on, they stole the hairstyle gag!

Ok, just kidding. But seriously, Yuru Yuri is just Azumanga with more moe and yuri, and without Osaka. Aside from that, they may be related: they have a very similar style, characters and jokes; they need no plot and just amuse the viewers with ridiculously cute girls goofing around in and out their school.

Azumanga is probably much better, since it is less repetitive and more random, but both have their charm and are really good to relax with a smile.

hyperactve hyperactve says...

These two anime are very similar. Even more, yuru yuri stole the hairstyle gag completely. :P Apart from that, Yuru Yuri is more moe and yuri than Azumanga Daioh.Azumanga Daioh excels in one aspect and that is OSAKA. She is not in Yuru Yuri.Azumanga Daioh is older and probably look dated. And the pervert in AD is a disgusting one compared to the one in Yuru Yuri. I will keep azumanga daioh in upper prosition as it is less repetitive.
