Both have very similar comedic styles and timing. They both center around a band of misfit characters in a world they don't really belong in, yet somehow always make it out OK in the end. Both leads recognize the absurdity of the situations they're in, but either don't care or get too wrapped up in it to back out. Both shows find a way to have extremely likeable and unlikeable characters, but always manage to get a good laugh!

at first glance these two anime have little in common but for the young female protagonists. and of course the close proximity of their airings. anyways, even the animation is significantly different.
as to why I decided to compare the two, well let me elaborate. I will list them as they come to mind.
1. the male characters are completely ridiculous (not that the females aren't). it's just that they are absolutely insane. I think mamoru miyano's character is the least predictable, definitely. however, the others give him a run for his money. hiro shimono as the cop is great.
2. the gap moe. ok the first episode of saga was a surprise. I mean, I had certain expectations based on the title and cover ovbiously. so I expected something bad to happen. and I also kept thinking of the american film they are making a sequel of. what I did not expect was the SPOILERidolSPOILER angle. and it's actually hard to choose SPOILER BEGIN between the rap battle, the electrified stage scene, and the metal gig, SPOILER END which of their shows is the best. good music in an anime is sublime. as for asobi asobase, I just didn't expect those girls to be so hardcore. no one did I suppose.
3. the op/ed. the opening of saga is ridiculous and amazing. the ending of asobi asobase even more so.
4. was there a fourth reason? hmm perhaps that they are both just ridiculous in the sense that whenever you're about to take the shows seriously they completely undermine that feeling with something nonsensical.
I think that's it...after all the animation style and the sound are totally different, and the characters, despite my descriptions above, aren't very similar. saga has a vague storyline but it's nonsensical like everything else. peace!
