comedy school seinen slice of life

Recommendations Submitted by Users

Slice of life, comedy. Minami-ke is probably better when it comes to comedy since the jokes are too obvious (the comedy in Lucky Star is related to anime and you need to have watched quite a lot to get all those). Oh yea, Lucky Star is much more slice of life than comedy (and vice versa with Minami-ke). In short, i enjoyed Minami-ke a bit more but they are both highly recommended if you are a fan of the genre .

Both are from the same genre - slice of life/comedy, and both tell the story in similar ways, using short segments throughout each episode to explore different parts of the characters lives. Both are hilarious, and both are a must watch.
The humor is very similar, both are very nice slice of life anime though I think Ichigo Mashimaro is a tad better. In any case, both anime are hilarious and very entertaining.

Both are comedy, slice-of-life anime, with a focus on a family of 3 sisters. Each individual has a stereotypic personality, which you can pretty much predict their responses/interactions to different situations. Both series will make you laugh out loud.
Same atmosphere and comedy but DKnN is with boys and Minami-ke is with girls. If you like one, you will like the other.
Both main female leads are very childish and similar in more then one ways. Also they both have mature sisters. Slice of Life and school type anime aswell.
Both slice of life anime with similar humour and pace. If you like one i suppose you would like the other
Very similar animation style and humor , both have great characters
Both are as similar as Facebook to Hi5, or Democrat to Republican.
The shows are brushed up with similar art-direction, almost pastel color choice, character design, pace, and genre.
The real example of style-parody. When someone say in easy English "the art is similar" this is what they mean, mostly because both shows share some staffs. Style-parody is not exactly a right word, they are officially sharing art-direction.

Genre similarity is also difficult to overlook. They are slice-of-life comedic show with heavy effort on showing the relationship of sub-character with the main cast (Minami family/ four main Yuruyuri girls.)

The original manga presents them both as a circle, character who lead the show are in the middle of the circle, and are given more airtime. Each lead cast has their own friend/ acquaintances who are in the outer of circle. They interact with the lead cast and branch out the show's focuses into more than one group of friends.

That's about every similarities that can be described in words. The differences are less tangible and lie in something beside visual. Yuruyuri is heavily lesbian, while Minami-ke give a fair share to male character, so we gotta admit this one big difference. The less worth mentioning difference are target audiences (which is already implied by the earlier statement)and original manga key genre (pure comedy vs shoujo-ai based).
almost identical laid-back atmosphere, concentrating on the way people life and their relations with each other. not much development in both, same kind of humour. also, nagi reminded me of kana
The animation is very similar.
The characters act somewhat the same. They're both pretty good shows.
Both series has a lot of comedy in them, both has a "baka" character in them, one of the main characters has someone liking him and he/she doesn't realize it(kana&fujioka, akhisa&himeji), both has school in them, and main characters in both are living withought their parents.
If you like comedy, and like one of the series, you should enjoy the other one.

the randomness is somewhat similar and so is the humour
Both have a simple & slow plot that very easy to understand, and they're both about the daily life of the main characters.
Both are simple anime where there isn't much of story to be told throughout the entire anime. They both have simple sketches in which they add humor in and usually every episode consist of multiple sketches.

They both “something” in multiple scenarios. For example, Acchi Kocchi it’s Tsumiki crush on Io, and in Minami-ke it’s Makoto’s cross-dressing.

And final (although most don’t consider this to be a reason to watch an anime) both anime have similar openings
Both series' humor is based on very specific traits and inner jokes of Japanese culture and often needs deep understanding of it in order to fully enjoy all references.
A few references in Minami Ke refer to Pani Poni Dash. Both revolve around girls in grade school. Hilarity ensues in both shows as well.
Very similar focus and style of humor, also with a mostly female cast.
Both are about three sisters with parents missing, family happiness, sisters and brothers, boys and girls. Then connection seemingly ends, with "Minami-ke" being mostly a school comedy, much lighter and cleaner, but the two are somehow congenial.
Both are slice of life animes and really good too. Minami-ke focuses a little more on comedy and nothing bad ever happens but when you watch it you still get the same feeling. It's like watching ordinary people in their every day life.
They are both slice of life comedy themed animes with attractive characters and nice seiyuus. Likeable by both male and female audiences.
Similar style of humour, follows the lives of high school girls in an every day setting, albeit Hyakko focuses more on school than home like Minami-ke does.
similar on how the art is drawn in the characters. Minami-ke is better quality though, and dosent have a similar plot line.
Both Mimami ke and Ouran will make you laugh time and again. They are funny, can be poignant at times, are mostly random though Ouran does have something of a plot. Though they are not entirey similar (no anime can be), if you like one then there is a high chance you will enjoy the other.

It's simply about comedy and slice of life as well!
The story tells about three sisters too
Minami-ke and Mayo Chiki positively express both comedy and relationships. These anime share very similar genres and energetic characters. Along with that, they are both fairly light-hearted comedies with more emphasise on comedy.
The similarity of these two series are focus on the three main characters revolving in their daily lives on just normal activities. Not much of a story, but is mostly around the comedy, and funny characters interacting with each other. Finding an easygoing comedy shows, then this will be your answer

Minami-Ke follows the daily lives of the Minami sisters who are in different grades, age, and school. Yuyushiki follows the daily lives of three high school students who joined a club and interact with each other.
Milky Holmes actually does have a plot, no matter how wimpy and lame. Both contain a sort of moe theme as it is the relationship of a group of girls who make bad puns, and get locked into stupid situations that just don't make sense. While the anime themselves are fairly different, the comedy is very similar.
Minami-ke has a similar art style and the characters share similar dispositions. Chiaka hitting Kana reminds me of Riko and Maki. Riko constantly points out whats wrong with everything as Maki does something stupid. Kana and Chiaki do pretty much the same. Uchida and Makoto are similar to Tanahashi with their klutzy behavior. The theme songs are also similar.
I think the main difference would be plot. Love Lab's plot is trying to understand love. Minami-ke is just the daily life of the Minami sisters, and is pretty much plotless.
Both shows are slow paced and relaxing with light comedy elements and they focus around a group of girls of different grades and ages and they give off a very similar slice of life feeling. While Non Non Biyori is set around the countryside and inside a small school with a small plot, Minami-ke has a wider variety of characters and is set in your average city and a lot of times in the Minami household. Minami-ke also has more male characters than Non Non Biyori while Non Non Biyori focuses mostly on the 4 female leads. Nonetheless the interactions the characters have is very similar in both anime.
If you like Non Non Biyori you will defenitely like Minami-ke and the same goes for the opposite.
If you liked Minami-ke, you will probably like Kimi to Boku. Both stories don't really have a plot, they're just about several characters and how they spend their time. While Minami-ke is about 3 sisters, Kimi to Boku is about 5 male friends. Both are very humorous.
Both shows have cute girls and are pretty funny, they are also split into a few short stories in each episode, which reflects both mangas they are adapted from.
Same Laid back Daily Lives with Lot of Comedy and Slapsticks..
The similarity is the main characters personality: the perfect words to describe Minami Kana (Minami-ke) and Onimaru Miki (Muteki Kanban Musume) is: 'totally idiot!' They always come up whith crazy ideas. And the idiots gather more idiots, it's doesn't matter if it's a young boy, who want to buy a bra or a dog with high fighting skills.
Similiar atmosphere, cute girls, fun slice of life.
semi-serious, kind of anime. watching it with laughs but without serious intentions
Same style and target.

o.O girls girls
Same kind of humor. Both are excelent comedy series.
If you've watched anime like Minami-ke and Lucky Star, then Manabi Straight would be a good choice to watch for another "slice of life" anime. Seiyuus of Konata popularly known from Haruhi (Lucky Star,) and Kana (Minami-ke,) as well as many other well knwo VAs are in this comedic anime.
Both slice of life, random stuff anime. And they both revolve around a group of girls.

The humour is also very similar.

Verbally abusive and virtually illogical dialog visualized in the cutest way possible (respectively). Japanese-style animated talk shows you are looking for.
both are anime about sisters. Minami-ke is more a comedy and BSM is just a slice-of-life but it has a very sweet story :)
Gintama is also randomness but with less innocent cute humor...much less actually, but humor is humor, nevermind how dirty it is XD if you can laugh at it you're having fun.
Okay... this might be a wacky recommendation, but I kind of think you'd like one if you like the other. They're both slice of life comedies that focus on absurd and hilarious exaggerations of mundane events in clever and surprising ways. Sure, one is about sisters and the other is about delinquents, but still... maybe you'd like it?
Main characters in both anime are schoolgirls) Well, maybe it's all what can be common - but maybe not ;)
While Minami-ke is more slice of life and school-relationships, High School Girls - it's fun, fun and even more fun.
So... if you still didn't grow up from schoollife - both anime would be a good time-spending ;)
A similar style of comedy, although i found Minami-ke more amusing. The storylines are pretty much entirely different, but if you liked one, you're likely to enjoy the other.

the art is somehow similar and
both are slice of life too.
Not as much sisterly love, but it's a cute and funny slice of life comedy about 3 sisters that live together.
both very funny, good characters, and thecomedy is smart/clever/fun/
Several of the characters are very similar in looks and in personality. The teddy bear is in both, Kana is like the high-energy Mikan, Touma is like Natsume, Chiaki is like Hotaru, and the list goes on for similarities. Mikan and Hotaru are best friends and fight exactly like Kana and Chiaki.

Aside from the characters the only other thing similar is that they are both comedies.
The art style is completely different, but apart from that the series are quite similar. Both are about the daily life of 3 sisters, only in the case of Uchi no 3 shimai they are a bit younger and rather than friends and other family members it's their parents "suffering" from them.

Both series are really funny and light hearted imho.
