Synopsis

Hideki, leader of the Nerima Daikon Brothers, has a dream to build a dome in his hometown of Nerima to hold a concert for his band. Together with his cousin, Mako (whom he has a crush on), Ichiro, and Pandaikon (a panda he found in his yard that resembles a daikon), they strive to make money any way they can, and in the process, rid the world of evil-doers and steal their money in the process. With help from a rental guy, Nabeshin, who rents them outrageous items that always seem to help them defeat the bad guys, the Nerima Daikon Brothers sing their way to victory but always manage to lose the money they stole in the end. Even under the investigation of Inspector Karakuri, they never fail to fight for justice the Nerima-Daikon way.

Nabeshin, most famous as the afro-sporting director of Excel Saga, thrives with material no one in their right mind would even think to create. With Nerima Daikon Brothers, he molds the story of two brothers, their cousin, and a soft... VERY soft... panda, who want nothing more but to turn their paltry daikon field into a concert dome where they can perform their music. But this is Nabeshin, so there has to be a catch, and it's a doozy... you see, Nerima Daikon Brothers is an anime musical. Singing, dancing, and lots of it.

Every episode deals with the Nerima Daikon Brothers looking for a break, read more

For lack of a better comparison (never saw Blues Brothers, and I’m not totally well versed in the Blues as a whole) Nerima Daikon Brothers is kinda the closest we’ve ever gotten to an anime version of Elite Beat Agents, except less dancing and more singing. It’s got a rather simple premise, as it takes place in little town called Nerima and follows a goofy trio of that live on a stage in the middle of a daikon field that’s owned a by the leader of the group, a square-jawed daikon farmer named Hideaki. Oh and their mascot, Pandaikon . He along with his cohorts, read more

I actually analyzed this series for a University paper (yeah, you read that right...)

Directed by the infamous Nabeshin, this is exactly what one should expect from him, with a twist. This is the first ever anime musical comedy. While fans of the typical Nabeshin screwball comedy will love it's off the wall flavour, it was also the pioneer of a new subgenre. Unfortunately...the pioneer was drunk off his ass and ran his covered wagon into many a ditch.

The show does have a basic plot that tie all of the events together. Hideki, Ichiro and their cousin read more

While watching this show, I really had to question myself if I was being subjected to some new form of humor miles beyond my comprehension. What was happening onscreen looked like comedy, it sounded like comedy, but lo and behold I wasn’t laughing. Was I just not getting this show’s formula or something? Was I too simple-minded to understand its complexity of wit and cleverness? But around halfway through the show, it hit me. It wasn’t clever, it wasn’t wit, it wasn’t even humor. This show was just fucking annoying.

The only way I could imagine this show being made is if a group of 3 read more

Both are jading political satires about life in Japan, cleverly disguised as screwball comedies. Both can be enjoyed without any knowledge of Japanese life and society, but it's even more hilarious if you can enjoy it on that level as well.

Worth checking out if political satire is your thing.

Both series have vulgar humor that is not too over the edge. And they also have similar artwork styles, except with P&S remiding me of the power puff girls.
The main characters are also a bit similar with their attitude towards situations.
Both are great watches.

Anime that deals with music in a comedic way,a hilarious parody,which will make you laugh or cry tears of joy.

Crazy characters in inexplicable situations, and both have satisfactory endings on their seasons. Similar in animation/illustration style and in the use of cultural references of Japan and anime. They often break the fourth wall during the most random moments. Another awesomely written and dubbed show from FUNimation.

Both are comedies that can get strange sometimes. Both also are aimed at an older audience since both contain dirty jokes that aren't hidden very well.
