So, imagine you live in the jungle, eating bananas and wierd looking jam filled creatures called pokute. Add to this a mother who loves to drink, a teacher with what is tantamount to a sleeping disorder, a girl who thinks she the heroine of her own tragic shoujo manga, a couple who have no shame, a guy who laughs at everything, a village leader who thinks chest hair is the ultimate sign of manliness, and various other characters.

Now, for good measure, throw in the ultimate terror on two legs in the form of a cute (sometimes), little girl, and make it so that your read more

After watching this whole thing, I'm not quite sure what to say except that it's unbelievably random, which makes it pretty humorous. Really, to sum the plot up in a sentence, is to say it's about a boy, Hare, living in the jungle with a cannabalistic demon in a young, pink-haired female's body named Guu, and she disrupts his life in numerous ways every day.

Usually I don't watch that sort of anime where random and insane is supposed to be funny (an example is Excel Saga, I suppose, which I highly dislike). But the wit in this is displayed across nicely and allows for many read more

I saw Hare+Guu fairly early on in my anime fandom, and thought it was the funniest thing ever. It’s set in a jungle with a young single attractive mother and her stressed out son, doing jungle stuff. Things start to go a bit haywire when the mother decides to adopt a cute little pink haired girl into the family, for no real reason beyond shits and giggles. Guu is a…well, in nerdy prat terms, she straddles a line between chaotic good, chaotic neutral and utterly incomprehensible. The spends most of the series goofing off in the background, dropping sly comments about proceedings, goading characters into read more

So I was asked for my opinion on this show and figured I'd turn it in to a full blown review. By the way this is my first so please be gentle :-P

First off if you particularly like tsukkomi/boke comedy stop reading and just go and watch this show, a huge amount of the comedy is based on this. For anybody you can recognise a bit of Japanese you'll notice about a fifth of Hare's sentences end with a variation of tsukkomu (most subbers translate this as something like 'jab'). If you have no idea what I was talking about for the past two sentences read more

Anime: Kemeko Deluxe!
These two anime are really alike. They have identical type of humour And also characters are similar: Kemeko reminds me of Guu and Sanpeita is like Hare. In both anime there is a bit of fanservice. If you liked one you will definitely like another.

A rational person has to deal with a weird group of people. You get to see that rational "straight guy" character squirming in both series.

It gives a sense of a Comedic Duo stage act. While both still has a small sense of an overall plot, it's strength is in the comedy.

They both have a few references to pop culture of the time, video games, or anime.
And occasionally drops a serious tone in the series, so it isn't just on an endless escalation of laughs.

Style of comedy is absurdism.
Has one logical character, while the rest are absurd.
In the sense it's like a comedy duo, one "straight man", while everyone else is bonkers.

The settings are vastly different, but it makes no difference. Since mainly where the story is set is rarely used as the setup for the joke, rather than that it is just a stage.

Jungle wa Itsumo Hare nochi Guu is closer to a comedy duo, as it focuses mainly on Hare (straight man) and Guu. It's comedy is on it's 'Saturday cartoonish' aspect of weird things happening.

The lack of common sense, the randomness, the split personalities, and the living veggies are in both anime.

Anime: Senyuu.
Both shows are over-the-top silly and while one has a character who loves video games, the other IS a video game. The main characters for these series are both the types who get hit and smacked around a lot, while asking, "WHY CAN'T THINGS BE NORMAL?!", with a sidekick who loves to tease and torture them.

Anime: Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou
These two have similar comedy styles, and are full-on comedy at every opportunity. The main characters in both series have a similar love for video games(particularly JRPGs), and both have done RPG-related parodies. The protagonists of one are mostly small children, and the other are teenagers who act like small children. If you love the immaturity and silliness of characters, you will love both of these.
