Anzu goes to a kindergarten with her friends, the shy Koume and the eccentric Hiiragi. Together they try to attract attention from their caretaker Tsuchida. However, he is clearly more interested in the pretty Yamamoto who supervises the class next door.

"You're hitting on me!"

I facepalmed. Onto my desk. With full force. That is the last thing you'd expect to hear in a show about kindergarteners. But Hanamaru Kindergarten is full of comments and moments where you stop and think to yourself, "What are the children of humanity learning these days...?". At least, that's what I was thinking the entire time.

Anyways, Hanamaru Kindergarten is a sickeningly sweet anime that I just happened to find on Crunchyroll one day, and decided to watch it, thinking that it was about time I stopped watching action related shows for a while. So I watched the first episode. In read more

Gainax’s most recent production seems to have been greeted with either one of three responses. The first is that of simple pleasure found in watching an anime that has well-structured episodes and that make good use of humor. This is the view I have adopted, as each sub-episode contained within an episode is well planned and carries subtle undertones of moral conventions contrasted with and against accepted social attitudes.

The anime itself is a set of twelve episodes, each containing two sub-episodes, that are loosely tied together through a plot-line based on the unrequited feelings of romance a kinder garden student, Anzu, has towards read more

Let me start off by saying this is a cute and innocent anime. Despite having a similar premise, this series is nothing like the Pedobear anime Kodomo Jikan. I don't generally do early season reviews, but since the only other review gave it a 1/10 I think a less bias grade is necessary.

Plot: The story revolves around a male kindergarten teacher's first class ever. He is shocked to see the job is a little harder than he thought it would be... especially since one of the little girls wants to marry him. So far (as of episode 2) the episodes have centered around the read more

So you look at the plot summary and think its just another show about a teacher and his students, however this show is much more than that. Although some issues of this show tread on some people's line of morality, it shows what a crush really is in its purest form in both of a child and an adult. Each side plot is filled with good jokes and a small moral lesson, while maintaining a light hearted feel in the show. Those who don't like too much happiness should stay clear of this show.

The animation for this show completely suits the light hearted feel this read more

they are both about kids and their teacher..Hanamaru is light-hearted and cute while Mitsudomoe has scary(in a funny way) and older characters and consists of mostly sex-jokes...if you watch Hanamaru and want a cute show then I don't recommend it...

They are both about a group of lil girls getting into crazy adventures. Hanamaru Kindergarten is less perverted while Kodomo no Jikan thrives on being perverted. Besides that, the main girl is in love with the male teacher in both of the series. Hilarity ensues.
Both series give off similiar vibe, have same type of humour and similiar setting.
Both are about cute little girls, getting into adventures.
The main characters look very similar, cute&moe
They are both about cute little girls~ and guys who are unaccustomed to dealing with small children.
