Both of these stories are about people who have problems making what can be concidered a true friendships with each other because of some sort of social stigma that they themselves place, or someone else does. The art style is also very simular.

the randomness and comedic is more fluent in denpa onna, but there is some that will catch you off guard in boku wa.

Both series has a lot of drama and comedy that is presented as being lighthearted.

The main female character and the relationship between her and the main male character are similar.
both anime consist of a male protagonist start to look after an odd girl, when they move into there destinated homes.
both male protagonists are totally different in personalities, where one just stupidly over reacts to everything and its not even close to realistic, and the other its just the usual ordinary boy, and the girl protagonists are just weird * weird as in one of them is completely loveable, yet the other is just a painted doll that cant do shit* imo.
both are a great anime to watch, *which i mean just denpa onna*, but sakurasou is not bad either, just doesnt live up to denpa, imo.
both have the generic usual supporting cast full of ecchiness and humour, which makes or breaks the anime.
they both are the same in a generic ordinary boy looking after a unordinary girl, but you might like one if you like the other in someways -___-
Pretty simple main male lead has to take care and do almost everything for Main female lead. Both male leads act almost completely the same, if you like one you will like the other.
both have boy taking care of troublesome girl
• Both have main character taking care of weird girl.
• Both mind of the girls are out of this world.
• Both girls are attractive and beautiful
Both are about a somewhat generic high-school boy that has to help/take care of a girl that has many eccentricities about her. Both have a very likable supporting cast that are all fleshed out well.
In my opinion, both take the cliched and make it something interesting to watch.
Both of the main characters find themselves dealing with major otaku of some time despite the fact that they want to live a normal high school life. Their lives become filled with crazy antics.
Girl believes she has magical powers. Girl appears in boy's life. Boy tries to convince girl that she doesn't have magical powers.
-Both male protagonists have to take care of a peculiarly eccentric girl
-Both animes are school life that have a balance of comedy/romance/drama
Female protagonists both believe that they have some sort of special 'power' or 'characteristic' while the male protagonists stay skeptical.
Well, these two series here can be described as addictive fun that is wildly entertaining in that bizarre way.
Both series has a strange girl who has strange behavior with a particular fascination on the supernatural. Both series has a strange cast of characters as well that mixes in drama, comedy, and randomness at times.
The male protagonists in the series are probably the only sane characters. They aim for a normal school but finds it difficult after the appearance of the said strange girl.
Both protagonists are aiming for a normal High School life after entering High School, but happen to meet strange school mates.
In both series it's a girl claiming to have supernatural powers or to be an alien who influences the boy's school life.
Both animes have the main character as a boy working towards leading a normal life, a delusional cute girl who believes she has powers beyond humans, a party of other girls to add to the mix, AND EVEN an attractive parent-figure to the cute girl. As the stories develop, it is evident that despite not having the best relationship at the start, they begin to ease up to one another.
While SHAFT focuses more on character speech and development, as well as their own unique animation style, KyoAni focuses more on visually enticing the audience.
Both girls believe they are something they are not and the guys try to convince her that shes wrong
Both of the female protagonists somehow have the same condition wherein they mix-up illusions with reality. Also, both of the mail protagonists had the same aim; to return these females back to reality.
Both female main characters believe in and/ or are obsessed by supernatural things.
The subject of aliens come up in both anime and both Anime have styles that are experimental in their own ways, not to mention both Anime use bright colors. Both are also about coming out of your shell.
Both have many random unique moments. Main guy arrives to new city near by the sea and ends up living with another character that behaves like an alien.
Both have a gorgeous animation.
Both somehow have to do with the sea. Two boys put into awkward situations because of the another character. Sci-fi element and the animation for both series flows nicely and is really colorful.
Both main characters are self-proclaimed aliens, and they're surrounded by even stranger people. Both animes are set in nice and detailed cities, and they both also have a plot line that changes frequently.
Both stories involve aliens
These anime are both completely strange with odd characters that come into the picture claiming they are aliens. One likes fish, while the other wears a futon around her. They are both odd.
Both focus on a guy whose average life is interrupted by an eccentric person claiming to be an alien. Both slice-of-life, have funny characters, pretty good animation.
If you liked one, you should be sure to try the other.
Similar mood and setting. And, well, instead of Youkai, we have "Denpa".
Being made by Shaft, both drawings are very similar to each other.
Protagonist has harem.
Somehow the whole story just seems to be an alternative version or inspiration to bakemonogatari.
"both Denpa Onna and Bakemonogatari are intelligent harems for adults with good taste."
stated by McRib
Not gonna say "the feel is similar" "the style is similar" "they both are from Shaft" though.
Slice of life plus mystery. Leading men of both shows have high adaptability to weirdos and tinfoil-hatters, as long as they are hot chicks.
Kind of Boy meet Girl(s) shows with some kind of mystery and probably trying to get along and find out stuffs. The key idea of both show is to be a slice-of-life that take place in technically hyperreality setting, or at least pretend to be one.
Shaft then beautify said shows, make use of symbols, try to be abstract, create something that can become meme or go virals, then hype up the hot chicks, bam - two servings of mysterious-hot-chicks anime.
both shows have similar protagonists whose monologes and dialogues with other equally ecentric characters comprise most of the show. there are a lot of unanswered questions in both series and interesting yet random screen shots. the art is amazing in both so they're both worth a watch.
Well, I see that Bakemonogatari and Denpa onna are too similar ,why?
- They are from SHAFT and the same director (Akiyuki Shinbou)
- art style and the animation are too similar
- both talking about supernatural things, it's more thrilling in bakemonogatari, while it's kinda comedian and slice of life-ish in Denpa Onna
- both have the Harem style with one hero and alot of bishoujos but denpa onna and bakemonogatari ARE NOT HAREM.
so, If you liked Denpa Onna..you'll like Bakemonogatari MORE.
Male with Harem consisting of strange girls.
Comedy, though executed better.
The paranormal and supernatural themes are explicit compared to the snippets offered in Denpa.
Strange/eccentric girls piques the viewer's interest and are the 'guts' of the show. Meaning, both of these shows would be horrible without them.
Both are offbeat comedies about an ordinary guy, his sort-of-romantic-but-not-really relationship with a girl who claims to be an alien, and their unconventional friends and peers. Arakawa's gag series nature renders it a lot sillier than Denpa Onna, but it's not without its own ridiculous elements. And of course both are directed by Shinbo, so you can't leave out his signature style.
I always look forward to finding something new and intresting in recommendation section when I am out of anime and that is why once in a while I try to recommend something too... For this time of year when a new season just started the best thing is to find one old and one new anime which were similar. And here we go:
* Both anime have main girl heroines who think that they are aliens.
* Both are bishoujos and nice girls but serious weirdouus ;DD
* Both leading males starts the show in deniel but than tries to adapt.
And here we start new alien season!
Nino and Erio are both self proclaimed aliens and are very weird. and both shows come from the same producer.
Both animes have a main female character that are self proclaimed aliens from outer space and have a mission. As the male main characters are similar too from both series who accept things after assessing their current situation, unless really bizarre.
Both have girls who think that they are aliens and have very vague plots.
Even if Denpa Onna lacks the supernatural element that Haruhi no Yuutsu had, it's still about a normal guy surrounded by a cast of weirdos.
Both lead male characters have a harem of eccentric/unusual girls.
The romance between the male leads and their harem is subdued.
MOE factor present, though Melancholy does not rely solely on this to attract the audience.
ESP, paranormal and supernatural powers involved, with Melancholy having explicit examples.
The existence of Aliens is a theme, but the evidence for their existence is strong in Melancholy.
Humans and aliens and espers, oh my...!
Okay, that was lame. But both series do have all those things.
The male protagonists have to deal with seemingly crazy girls who talk about espers and aliens.
Supernatural flavored lovey-dovey-bishoujo-fanfare anime. Sci-fi element is weak and less worthy of mentioning than your average Star Trek. The fun part of Nyaruko-san is obviously not wet tentacles trying to ass-rape random teenage boy, but hot chicks that spout sexy nonsense and wear easy-to-took-off uniform.
They both are anime with hot chick, slight of life, comedy and mild sex sell. But with some extraterrestrial topping. Possibly mark the era that the legendary romance harem like Love Hina is a little bit too boring in normal world setting, so Japan added robots and aliens to them. Now you understand where all those animes came from.
What else is worth mentioning? Not really. The pace are different, the humor are not at all similar, the art direction is all cool but not worth pointing out, the voice acting is not the same style for most part of the show. End of discussion. Now choose your porn, if you have high tolerence to everything, both are funny. If you hate overly fast paced comedy, go with Denpa Onna. If you fall asleep when watching Titanic and fall asleep again decade later when watching Titanic3D, go for Nyaruko-san. No one can sleep with that thing on.
Crazy, random stuff happens. One has aliens and one talks about aliens. They also have similar character styles.
Both have aliens in them. In Denpa Onna Erio believes she's an alien, but she's not unlike Nyaruko who is.
They have a similarly light mood with a harem-ish cast of weird but cute characters with no real point to the story.
Denpa Onna and Sasami-san have a similar girl who does not attend school and is seen as an outcast or a NEET, Denpa Onna and Sasami-san share a whimsical young feeling to the series. Sasami-san being a bit more Sci-fi than Denpa Onna, both series have their fair share of very unique and unforgettable characters.
Adjusting to life with a girl who is more than a little odd.
Both series' main female protagonist have very bizarre personalities whom viewers may not often see in every day life.
Both series employs strange humor that is presented in a sarcastic and sometimes over exaggerated ways. The humor presented in fact is sometimes over the edge rather than natural but still can be a good laugh.
Both series has a similar feeling with the comedy, gag, and various dialogues.
Well, Denpa Onna is more fantastic, but both are still heart-warming stories about teenagers and they lives, fears and loves. What's more, I found Ryuuko very similar to Minorin.
Both have love-comedic moments with a dose of seriousness under them. And Ryuushi is very much like Minori- so character similarity
Plot and setting are fairly different, but there are some notable character similarities.
Ryuuko is an honest version of Minori.
Meme is Yasuko.
Maekawa gives off the same impression as Sumire and acts similarly to Ami.
Both series focus on the characters, although Denpa tends towards harem while Toradora! is romance.
Crazy girls harem for our hero. Both got industry-leading lengthy name. Not to mention that it's basically harem spiced with stuffs don't belong to romance, violence and aliens for example.
The OVA one is full of girls who are, by all social definition, eastern or western, violent. All girls take the liking of the male lead, some want to get along, plenty want him dead.
The Shaft-made one is sci-fi flavored love comedy. Girls are non-violent, but extra-strange nonetheless.
Both fit for the you who are bored with common harem setting without blood and aliens, with Denpa Onna give you some makeshift sci-fi and Denpa Kanojo offer you gory romance.
They both have girls who believe in something made believe and the guy has to go certain lengths to deal with them. However, Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko is like the more. . . childish one. I mean, don't get me wrong, Denpa Onna is still fantastic and has a handful of mature parts, but Denpa teki na Kanojo is. . . practically 100% mature. However, both are pretty damn good so i'd recommend both.
Now I know what you're thinking. What similarities could a show about cute yet crazy girls and SHAFT antics and a show about distressed individuals and dark comedy possibly have?
When you look past the design choices they actually have plenty of similarities.
Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko begins with Matoko moving in with his aunt and cousin. Erio is detached from the world, traumatized by some prior experience. He vows to gradually ease Erio back into society.
Welcome to the NHK begins with Satou, a depressed hikkikomori, and his pathetic life. Prone to drug abuse (which the anime excludes), he has hallucinations and illusions of grandeur, not unlike Erio's fascination with being an alien. Misaki acts as his guide on his way to reintroduction to society.
All of the characters in both series have their own issues which are touched upon.
The shows also both include plenty of parody and referential humor.
The first season of Denpa (if it ever gets more) only strays into the cutesy side of the story. It has yet to get into the real meat of the novels, while NHK explores it far more.
Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko => Welcome to the NHK
Both are coming of age series involving social closing, interaction and hardships of a person who is trying his social integration back. While Denpa Onna is a light slice-of-life, NHK is more psychological, dark and heavy.
After a session of careful thought, you can see that what the lead male characters are doing is pretty similar.
Presented like there are something supernatural going on, both shows are about myth busting in a world without the slightest existence of sci-fi elements. It's all about the idea of unconventional presentation of a very conventional, realistic setting.
Denpa Onna anime, as far as it goes, has nothing defying the laws of physics. No matter how it wanted you to think or feel about, there is not one. No saying about the original light novel as it might has some surprising revelation later, but it is likely that there might not.
Hyouka on the other hand is beautified with scenes that look and feel otherworldly, but they are at best the presentation of character's feeling. Again, no ghosts, aliens, psychic, time traveler and evil crime orgainzation to be found. Just a bunch of high schoolers being curious of stuff you will never ever give a quarter of fuck.
Even though the MCs are different, the main heroine in both are great. It has a mysterious factor in it. I thought it was really good and similar
Both involves a mucahcho who happens to be the only normal hombre in a group of poco loco chiquitas.
Both involves a chiquita who is the most weirder of all.
Both have sci-fi genres.
And in both cases, the muchacho is drag into the chiquita's weird world.
In DOSO the muchcho almost never encountered any esper or ET beings, while the same cannot be said with the muchacho from SHY.
In SHY the muchacho was able to develop a relationship with the chiquita, while in DOSO the muchacho is sometimes being sexually harass by his MILF aunt.
When it come to the extra genre, DOSO is more of drama than sci-fi, while in SHY it's genre has romance as an extra genre, but it is more of mystery than sci-fi.
Produced by the same studio and directed by the same director. Additionally, they both contain comedy, scenery, and an usual feeling to viewers.
Oh not only that but the main male protagonists are similar and contains a lot of humor courtesy of Shaft.
Unique series for viewers interested into the works of Shaft.
Both have the same basic premise: A teenage male transfer student comes to a new town and meets a beautiful, strange, and nonetheless intriguing heroine. Denpa is more comedy and harem with some sci-fi, while Another plays with the horror genre. Both are awesome.
Both of these animes sets the scene with a random, almost alien girl being introduced to the protagonist. The girl is a complete airhead, and causes problems for the guy. There is a mother-figure who attempts to control the female lead, but never succeeds. This is a combination of comedy and what I guess you could call "alternate romance".
Supernatural flavored lovey-dovey-bishoujo-fanfare anime. Sci-fi element is weak and less worthy of mentioning than average Star Trek.
Anime with hot chick, slight of life, comedy and mild sex sell. With some extraterrestrial topping. Possibly mark the era that the almighty Love Hina should stop taking place in realistic setting.
Excessive mentioning of stuff that has little to do with actual show, the sci-fi element.
Kashimashi is about alien turning a man into girl, and you know what ensues. However the sci-fi stuff contribute very little to the actual story, after all this was just your girls-love anime with some alien who didn't want to conquer the earth. There is no sci-fi appeal in this, it just happen to get mildly Star Trek flavored.
Denpa Onna excessively suggest to audience that alien populated this show, but it focused on too much human relationship and earthly sex appeal for alien to make a prominent appearance.
What's the difference between pure science and applied science? Half the population don't know before Googling it up.
Aria is an actionless twist from normal sci-fi genre which usually come bundled with action. Well of course Aria is chilled slice-of-life, but if that actionless, blood-deboiling moments make you overlook its sci-finess then you are not familiar with British soap. And yes sci-fi get along well with comedy, slice-of-life, romance, and actionless drama too. Sci-fi no longer serve purpose as a genre in 2011, it's more like a setting.
Denpa Onna is a sci-fi-less twist from normal sci-fi genre which usually come bundles with sci-fi elements. (Wait, what?)
Lets say most sci-fi anime are applied science and this thing is pure science. Other sci-fi shows are sci-fi because aliens appear in it. This show is sci-fi because people appear in it talk about aliens. Now that's the difference.
Without listening to dialogue (or in your case reading subtitles,) nothing is sci-fi about this. The show is viisually dominated by earthlings. And technically nothing extraterrestrial landed in this show just yet.
In both anime's the main male protagonist find themselves (for them at the moment) in a wierd place, surrounded by strange people. But in no time they get used to it.
Both anime's have a piece of supernatural related storys, and the comedy is mutual in them. The music is also good if you ask me.
For some odd reason, the art work and story remind me of "St. Luminous Mission High School". Yes, there seems to be less supernatural when it comes to "Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko", but they have a very simular feel to their slice-of-life story telling. You also get to feel as if the characters exist.
Both series have a side character who usually goes around wearing a spacesuit, often to comedic effect unintentional on their part. Come on, you can't say you see this often.
