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, but 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 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!

These two manga or so similar that sometimes it's not funny. K-On! shares Hidamari's tone, halfhearted focus on a central theme (music in K-On!, art in Hidamari) and even the occasional character (Yoshinoya could be Sawako-chan-sensei's sister). If Miya and Yuno, Sae, and Hiro's antics make you giggle, you're gonna love Ritsu, Yui, Mio, and Mugi.

As mentioned in the above recommendation, these two are very much alike in plot (if you can call it that). I do find that K-On! focuses more on the characters in their club, while Hidimari Sketch focuses more on the characters off campus. I find the humor in both mangas to be especially similar, including the teacher's role, pun timings, character types, and the occasional obligatory yuri references.

Azumanga Daioh

Azumanga Daioh

Miss Yukari's high school class is far from average. With ten-year-old genius Chiyo; dim-witted ‘Osaka'; weight conscious Yomi; loud-mouthed and energetic Tomo; and the ultra cool, animal-loving Sakaki, daily life is far from dull. Follow the day-to-day lives of this fun-loving group of girls as they progress through high school. From annual cultural festivals to gambling, from first dreams of the New Year to death-defying road trips, the lives of these students and their teachers are always exciting and new.

Azumanga Daioh and Hidamari Sketch are sweet little 4-Koma manga about unusual girls and their friends in high school.

GA: Geijutsuka Art Design Class

GA: Geijutsuka Art Design Class

The students of the Geijutsuka Art Design Class study all the various fields of art, from sketching and painting to graphic design and photography. While the mischievous Noda is always thinking up new ways to have fun with her partner in crime - tomboy Tomokane - the ditzy Kisaragi is content with doodling cats in her sketchbook. With Namiko attempting (and failing) to keep the energetic duo in line, the quiet and mysterious Kyoujyu seems happy to observe the odd behavior of her classmates. Whether they are transforming a congealed lump of paint into a sculpture of a pudding, playing ‘colour tag’, or making thought collages, the gang live their life to the max through both their friendships and their art.

Both Hidamari Sketch and GA: Geijutsuka Art Design Class are 4-koma moe slice of life manga that focus on high school girls specialising in art based subjects, thougj Hidamari is more Slice of Life and GA leans more towards wacky comedy.

Kajiwara Sora is a shy girl who loves to draw. She's a member of the art club at school, even though one of the other members scares her sometimes. She finds drawing things like flowers or fruit easy enough, but she puzzles over how to capture more fleeting moments, like the flapping of a bird's wings or a cat that won't sit still. There are things she can draw, and things she can't draw, and with the help of her friends in the art club, she's going to experience them all to the fullest.

Mahoraba

At the old-fashioned Japanese boarding house Narutakisou, Shiratori lives with a diverse yet strangely-similar group of tenants. Under the tender care of landlady Aoba Kozue, Narutakisou provides a home to people whose personal lives are all painful in one way or another; yet together, somehow, they make up a true family. Not only does Shiratori find a home at Narutakisou, but he also finds himself in love with a girl who is far more than the sum of her parts.

Morita-san wa Mukuchi

Morita-san wa Mukuchi

Mayu learned everything she knows about manners from her mother – most importantly, that in any conversation, she should make eye contact at all times and let the other person finish their thoughts completely before responding. Unfortunately for Mayu, this advice is difficult to follow when your friends are a bunch of talkative high school girls, and has left everyone thinking she's overly quiet and shy instead! With good friends such as chatty Miki and shy Hana beside her, Mayu will silently navigate her high school life and have plenty of fun in the process!

Wouldn't you just love to poke in a relationship between two young high schoolers who have a subtle distance between each other? Of course you would. Tsumiki and Io have this subtle distance that anyone would want to jump in between just to bug them. That's what the other characters are there for. Tsumiki, being a tsundere and all, won't be honest about her feelings toward Io. Io on the other hand is unaware of Tsumiki's feelings, hence the subtle distance between the two. Now, let's watch these two and see what events await them...nd idiocy of five schoolmates: Io, Tsumiki, Hime, Mayoi, and Sakaki.
