"One Off" is a very simple story. It's all about overcoming the obstacle of negative thinking, things that you may think are impossible can actually be more easily attainable when you are working towards that goal and thinking positively. If anything, you will feel better.
Nothing good comes from negative thinking except for just that, more negative thinking.

This is your basic slice of life story with mopeds, motorcycles, the eagerness to travel, and Honda (yes, the vehicle company) as the main subjects. With one of the best directors when it comes to slice of life works, Junichi Sato.

It's not original, but does anyone really expect read more

One Off was subbed yesterday and I already watched it 3 times. You may think that this anime must be pure awesome because I watched it 3 times in a day, but not exactly that. I just enjoyed it a lot.

That said, One Off is still pretty amazing anime for such a short series. The story is about these 5 girls, which names I don't know doing slice of life stuff, and they like motorbikes. The blue-haired girl is funny as hell. She has cutelittlefangs and she is master of the trope, google it if you don't know. Surpasses Tsuru-chan from Suzumiya Haruhi series, read more

Both series involves a group of cute girls doing cute things in a slice of life style mixed in with comedy and drama.

Both series has a variety of characters of different personalities as they live life in a somewhat realistic approach.

Both series has similar feeling and style.
This is pretty much the same as One Off, and it also happens to be an OVA.
You get 4 girls, all friends, each one with their own dreams and things they're good at. It also takes place in a small town, and the main character also happens to meet an older someone that inspires them.
The only notable difference is that, in One Off, the main character actually dislikes the town where the series takes place, but in Tamayura the MC loves it.
