Synopsis

Keroro is a frog-like alien sent from his home planet on a mission to conquer Earth. But when his cover is blown, his battalion abandons him and he ends up in the home of the Hinata family. There, he's forced to do household chores and sleep in a dark basement that was once supposedly a prison cell haunted by the ghost of an innocent girl. He even spends his free time assembling Gundam model kits. During his stay, Keroro meets up with subordinates who were also stranded during their failed invasion.

Keroro Gunsou is one of those Anime-series you would think is meant for a very young audience due to the art style. "Looks like Pokemon" is an usual comment for this show. You couldn't be more wrong. In the USA, this show would've received a Teen rating, nothing less. And why? Because this Anime is filled with surprises: Parodies of 70-90s Anime, Nudity and the ocassional episode with outright disturbing scenes.

Story:
---------------------------
The show sorrounds a group of five frogs, named "The Keroro Platoon". Their job is simply to invade the earth and control everything there. With over 300 episodes with the same plot, it becomes rather read more

I started to become a fan of Sergeant Frong (aka Keroro Gunsou) when the manga first came out here in the US. At first I though this was gonna be some manga I wouldn't like but eventually I fell in love with the crazy antics of the Alien space Frog, Keroro. I began to watch the episodes on Youtube and they were just as I expected to be. Though the show seems kiddy like, they have alot of adult themes. It also has sketches within the anime of scenes of many famous Japanese movies and Animes (Gundam the most).

The story begins with Fuyki and read more

Well before otaku-queen Konata Izumi's (LuckyStar) sitcom ever aired, there existed a little green alien named Keroro that came down to command and conquer this planet. How he will manage to pull this off even Keroro doesn't even know himself. This is where the viewer comes in. We're all there for the wild ride that is the Keroro Universe. This whole series is told in a sitcom format where almost every episode will end with little to no change to the story. If you don't know if this is a series for you just read the lyrics of the first opening credits:

When I am watching Keroro and his antics to try and invade Pekopon, a.k.a Earth, I get many mixed emotions. I am usually laughing really hard, then I am like "Huh? What just happened?". And some episodes make me cry, but that is very few. For some reason, I like my shows to give me mixed emotions because I like to be kept entertained throughout the show, and Keroro gives me that. I also love the music. The music is very bubbly and happy. It makes you want to get up and dance. The art is not like your traditional Japanese art, but it is read more

Recommendations

These are two similar series that are SO similar - it's almost scary. Both main protagonists, Keroro and Ika, are "invaders" from very different worlds who come here to Earth in order to invade us and claim everything in humanity for their society back home. And, both end up becoming slaves to a pair of siblings to do hard work and labor for one reason or another as soon as they arrive unto Earth. Ika - a pair of sisters. Keroro - a sister and brother. The art style and emotion art between the two is even similar. The comedy is the same between the two as well. Slapstick and character torture [to a very light degree]. When Keroro and Ika do something that they aren't supposed to, they are punished by fists driving into their skulls [or other forms] and yelled at for their foolish behavior by the tsundere sister in the series. The sound effects, music, and setting are spot on with each other as well [various popping and squishing noises and electric/bubbly music]. The two protagonists also have the same sort of character motifs and actions and emotions, as well as a catch phrase/regularly used Japanese honorifics. Keroro - "~De Arimasu!". Ika - "~De Geso!". And lastly, they also are sheltered and befriended by their captures in return for their hard manual labor and being tortures. They also find out just what it means to be a citizen on Earth and what the humans go through in their daily lives. Episodes are also split into two parts - however, they are both tied in with each other. So, if you have watched on of these series watch the other. You're seriously going to like it and notice EVERYTHING that's similar with the other series in the first episode.
Both are random, funny with great characters.
Both have aliens and both were being made by Sunrise~

A lot of references of Keroro in Lucky Star. They also use the real voices of the characters, and they appear as dolls and figurines in the serie. The show is also humoristic, and sometimes it's as random as Keroro.
the two are about strange creatures who want to conquer the plant , but all the times they try , they fail. and teh two are comic series.
• Both are comedy's
• Both have ninjas
• Both have similar gag's and scenarios.
Amazingly enough there are acutely a lot of similarities between the two. Keroro Gunso has a lot of refrence comedy to it, "supernatural" things that are not earthly, parodys,they are both hilarious to watch, and more. And as well whenever I watch Dokuro-chan, it reminds me of Natsumi Hinata from Keroro. I guess they are both tsunderes. Anyways, I am sure that if you liked this Anime you will like Keroro Gunso! ;D
