Himeno is a sweet, shy little centaur girl. In her world, everyone seems to be a supernatural creature, and all her classmates have some kind of horns, wings, tails, halos, or other visible supernatural body part.

I just finished reading up to chapter 52 of Centaur no Nayami, and I have to say that I enjoyed this manga very much. It is a slice-of-life, with lots of cuteness, a little mild drama, and just a few political undertones. This all makes the manga very "life-like", even with all of the characters being various species of monsters (the characters themselves consider all of the monster species to be "human"). Like most slice-of-life series, there is no big, cohesive story, but the characters are where the manga really shines.

Like I said, all of the characters make this manga stand out from the read more

It’s a very strange manga, fit for those interested in fringe genres.

Centaur girls are awesome – that’s what this manga is about (on the top level at least). Though there’re other species in their world – angels, imps, cat people, etc. and their hybrids – the author is first and foremost interested in centaurs. And the main heroine of this manga, Hime-chan, is a gorgeous example, royal not only in her name. The story tells about her everyday little worries and discoveries, her schooldays and holidays, as well as about the lives of her friends and relatives (there’s also a small centaur girl).

Ah, damn it, read more

Manga: Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou
both have a centaur girl as a character though Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou is super ecchi and has other monster girls vying for the main heroine spot. Either way, if you love having fun with monster girls, then have fun with both of these

Manga: Nukoduke!
Both series has a casual way of storytelling with slice of life dynamics. Nonetheless, they have a small yet colorful cast of characters with appealing personalities. Every chapter offers something new to the readers with everyday life events. If you find a slice of life appealing with charming attributes, then definitely consider both of these titles.

Manga: Neko Musume Michikusa Nikki
Both manga are seinen supernatural slice-of-life manga following a monster girl female main character going about their daily lives interacting with others. If you enjoyed one, you will most likely enjoy the other.  
reportRecommended by Toarujisuru
Manga: Shinryaku! Ika Musume
With a slice of life mood, both series adapts a story with a lighthearted atmosphere with a cast of peculiar characters. It's noticeable that both series has supernatural themes with a lot of parody and gags. Centaur no Nayami occasionally adapts more of a serious tone with emotional appeal while Shinryaku has more comedy.

Manga: Soredemo Machi wa Mawatteiru
Both series shows daily lives with occasional bizarre incident involving alien/ghost/dimension travel etc. The concept of "daily lives goes by even when bizarre thing happened" shown by combining normal daily lives & supernatural phenomenon. The difference is that Soremachi got normal human neighborhood as a setting while Centaur take a setting in modern-ish fantasy world.
