Get Smashed By Female Characters: The Animation. It's times like this where I question myself ways to enjoy an anime such as Mangaka-san to Assistant-san to The Animation, what is exactly entertaining about it? The forthcoming events in this anime is so easily predictable, "Oh yes, he is about to get his ass kicked by that female character". This anime provoked me to think of the reason why comedy is allowed to be based on our perception of someone else's misery, misfortune, tribulation and lack of accomplishment in whether is his desire or a goal, should we really find it funny on such thing?

As Spring Season for 2014 comes to a close and I start to reflect back at the series I followed, there will be a handful of series that will be memorable. Such a series as Mangaka-san to Assistant-san to The Animation that will be a part of the few series I will most definitely remember. It has been a long time where I have came across an anime that is extremely hilarious and to have me in hysterics multiple times in one sitting, and all it takes you might ask?

Recommendations

Both are anime about a mangaka and his assistant(s) but Mangaka-san is more ecchi.
Both are comedy harems with cliche set of plot and archetypes, character interactions usually leads to off-color humor. They're also both in skit while SYD uses is more focus on slapstick, MTATTA uses a variety of meta-humor and comedic analogies. The manzai roles are also reversed between the series.
