I'm not recommending Yotsuba just because it is from the same manga-ka, but because they are both light hearted stories with hardly to no plot. They're very enjoyable and funny reads that will brighten your day considerably. 

SilentWarlock SilentWarlock says...

Both coming from the same manga-ka, these lighthearted slice-of-life stories have much the same sense of humor and story-style.  But at the same time they are very different in story and characters (and format, since Azumanga Daioh is a 4-panel style, and Yotsuba is standard manga format).  If you enjoyed either one of these, there's a pretty good chance you'll like the other as well.

Apart from the art being similar, these two have the same style. The two series are both light hearted and care-free, with a lot of randomness. There is not much plot, but both of these have a silly humour which makes it enjoyable.

Both Azumanga and Yotsuba&! are from the same mangaka, so they both share a similar style of comedy. Both also have adorable and loveable protagonists, and I'd wager that if you liked one, you'll lvoe the other.

HasseRovdjur HasseRovdjur says...

The focus of both manga lie on comedy and slice of life. While the comedy in Azumanga is more hyper they're both rooted in daily life and feature great casts with varied characters.

Whitie Whitie says...

Because these are great stories about girls and their everyday life with no fixed plot at all. I really enjoyed by reading them and recommend to read both.

Disgusted by this behavior, Daikichi decides to take care of her himself, but he's a bachelor, has no idea how to raise a child, and doesn't even like kids! Now, Daikichi must do the normal things a parent does such as enroll her in school, buy her clothing and teach her about the life and world around her.

Together, the two begin their unlikely relationship as father and daughter.

Both of these series are about a single man trying to raise a young daughter, despite having no knowledge or experience raising kids. Both stories are filled with the misadventures of of these young girls & their adopted fathers. While yotsuba is more comedic than usagi drop, they have many similarities, and if you liked one you're sure to enjoy the other.

Reat Reat says...

Both of these series are very similar - in both content and quality. Bunny Drop has a bit more drama, while Yotsuba focuses moreso on comedy. They are both equally enjoyable though, and a good read whichever one you read first.

Both are very funny commidies about cute little girls doing cute things. If you liked one you should read the other.

cassiesheepgirl cassiesheepgirl says...

If you enjoy cute manga about cute girls doing cute things, then both Yotsuba&! and Strawberry Marshmallow will be right up your alley. Though Yotsuba&! is generally funnier with a bolder style of comedy, I think if you like one, you'll enjoy the other.

Both manga are about a little girl who is naive and gets into trouble. They are both really funny, and focus on the way the main character annoys the rest of the cast with their childish antics and socially unacceptable behavior.

Shivichan Shivichan says...

Both mangas have a wacky main girl who drives the manga and changes the life of the people they meet. Both are uber cute and innocent. Strikingly similar. :)

Okay, I'll admit that these don't have much in common on the surface and don't even share a genre. But, if you like manga that makes you happy, both of these fit the bill.

Yotsuba&! is a slice-of-life comedy that follows a five-year old girl as she discoveries the everyday wonders of the world. Cardcaptor Sakura is a magical girl classic by CLAMP.

However, both manga have young female leads who are overall optimistic and love life. Both manga have an excellent supporting cast of friends and family. And both are sure to cheer you up if you've had a bad day.

tl;dr version:

Both of them have a very good everything with a crazy child doing crazy things, and they leave the same feeling when reading

Long version:

If you have read Yotsuba! or Barakamon, you already know the special feeling that they emanate when you are reading them. I don't know how to describe it, it's like a mix of very good slice of life, good characters, simple but good stories, etc. It's hard to explain; I once tried to tell a friend what was Yotsuba&! about and his answer was "So it's something like Shin-chan?", which clearly isn't. I almost cringed.

So, if you like one of these series, give a change to the other one, they have the same feeling.

Both series are about a cute girl who is discovering things for the first time, and is being guided by a (seemingly) older man. (The ages in Sui Youbi aren't made clear, though the girl & guy are stated to be married.) Both series feel very similar to one another, so if you liked one you'd definitely enjoy the other.

These two are down to Earth and chill reads with cute drawings and adorable little girls. I had to smash my head against the wall after reading these two mnaga to find manliness once again. It was worth it.
