"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

Recommendations

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.
