Here we have a yuri, ecchi, slice of life comedy with a little bit of a warm and fuzzy feel to it. If you like those genres then you should definitely check this one out. Allow me to break it down for you...

STORY 7/10- Other than the story behind the main character's arrival we don't have much of a plot, which is fine given the anime's episodic nature which I personally find fitting for a comedy. There are numerous strong ecchi scenes which an outspoken population of anime viewers find distasteful, but I generally look at it as another form of read more

Kanamemo is slow paced and for those who don't want something to take heavily. It's not bad, but has a few bumps in the road. Could be better, but for what it is you should have fun if you enjoy SoL/Comedies in general.

Story: 4

What story? There is barely a story if you can call it one. The main character Kana's parents have passed and she was in the care of her grandmother who soon passed and now she is homeless and looking for work. She ends up finding a place to work and live, but it's filled with eccentrics and quite the busy place. Her read more

Stressed out from the most dragging of dragging unfunny and unimportant/fanservice-filled filler episodes ever? Trying to find a totally relaxed slice-of-life anime? Not terribly offended by yuri? (PROTIP: Yuri doesn't have an everlasting effect, there is little to mild yuri hinted here, may be disturbing but most of the time it is quite used in a comical sense)

Then Kanamemo is easily one of the newer ones I would recommend to you. Remember though, that this is a very hit-or-miss thing. What you would benefit from, is to not think of it hugely as a comedy series but instead as a simple slice of life series read more

Story: The story of Kanamemo is short, sweet, and overall, quite enjoyable. The characters and very likeable and realistic. One of my personal favorite aspects of this show is that there is a girl x girl couple, but they're not there just for the sexual appeal, yuri, or fanservice aspect many other girl x girl couples are. So, kudos to you, Kanamemo. :)

Art: The art in this series wasn't anything special, really, but it was in no way an eyesore. It was your typical animation, with bright colors and soft backgrounds. While it was nice, it didn't leave any major lasting impressions on me, unlike read more

If you like the slice of life comedy + yuri combination, you will like both of them.
The setting is different though (Yuru Yuri has a tipical school setting, while Kanamemo is more focused on the life outside school - precisely at work), but the feel is definitely the same with a bunch of cute girls (mostly lesbians, of course) living their normal lifes filled with comedy, jokes and... well, yuri.

Slice of life comedy with an all girls cast. 
reportRecommended by Hybrid00
Both are very funny yuri (or anti-yuri^^) comedy with specific sense of humour. 
reportRecommended by MilkShake
I think they are really similar
• they have similar feel
• similar humor (made me laugh in both)
• good art - girls drawn good and cute though I have to admit, Kiniro Mosaic is a bit more cute
• both really good slice of lifes
• I know this has nothing to do with the anime but the openings are super similar
Idk I just felt they have a similar feel and all even though Kanamemo is listed as yuri and it is but still, I find those scenes some cute and some funny. They are just similar so you should try both  read more

Kanamemo is, shortly, a yuri version of K-ON!, minus the music.
In K-ON! the girls are in a music club, while in Kanamemo they work in a newspapers delivery office. Both the protagonists (Yui and Kana) are voiced by Aki Toyosaki, and are surrounded by female friends who support them. However, like I said before, Kanamemo has yuri: in fact, there is a side canon lesbian couple, a perverted woman who likes loli and a girl who is in love with the protagonist. There is no romance though, so even if you don't like yuri much but you like shows like K-ON! you may  read more
