Flip Flappers and Junrui share a common setting being placed in the future/alternate reality of current society. Each shows gives you a whimsical almost Alice in Wonderland feeling, they share similar main characters that are equally quirky and colorful. The story telling is also very similar and comical in each show and the setting is very immersive and draws you in asking more questions than seem to get answered.
- Both have really colorful and fun animation and artstyle
- Story flows naturally in both animes
- Both are set in an alternative future world
- Insteresting main characters
As soon as I finished watching the very first episode of Flip Flappers the first thing that came to my mind was Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita. Then I realized they are rather similiar.
Not so similar in genre, but Jinrui provides a very similar aesthetic to Flip Flappers. Both shows push beyond reality and paint a more fantastical picture within their story. The music in both series combined with the specific color palettes and humor provide a similar light-hearted atmosphere too.
Also, cute characters if that's what you're looking for.
Very zany, but never absurd. This is what I think principally sets Humanity Has Declined and Flip Flappers from all the rest. Both anime seem out of this world, but in a way wherein their quirks don't go too far as to become abnormal, just rather eccentric and actually intelligible at certain respects.
Other similarities are the presence of a wacky artsy and bright art style, a very immersive setting, comical use of sound and animation effects, and similar vibey theme music.
Firstly, the similarities between animation and music are clear. Both anime have colorful and vibrant art styles and some songs have the same vibe.
Secondly, I like how the two stories are cheerful, crazy and give the show uniqueness and diversity thanks to the many creative adventures the protagonists go through. Humanity Has Declined has its own uncommon settings and fantasy elements that break with the common logic, while Flip Flappers starts with a common school setting, but early establishes its own fantasy world and fantasy elements as well. There are also some surreal and sometimes trippy scenes shared in the two stories too.
Lastly, while both stories look very vibrant and cheerful on the surface, both hold dark secrets, facts and backgrounds that later in the show are revealed or hinted. read more
you could think it's an all age anime watching both OPs but the truth is both have dark twists in plot
both have these adorable creatures as Jintai has fairs and Penguin Drum has penguins but those creatures weren't that all cute since the penguins are ******** (sorry, I don't intend spoil you) and the fairies are badly weird O: , I might say they were really suspicious
both of these anime have that unique feeling between darkness, insanity, magic and fantasy, therefore you hardly will find a similar anime of that kind
The story of these two anime mostly relies on the surrealness and their creativity with a plot that is bizzare, twisted and weird. The artstyle is similar and both shows have a lot of comedic elements, which aren´t too similar in itself though.
Both are dark satires whose bleak content is contrasted with the colorful setting. Both also have creatures that can alter the world, but are mostly used for comic relief (fairies in Humanity has Declined, penguins in Mawaru Penguindrum).
Arakawa and Jinrui share a very similar setting, both are very sci-fi and strange filled with eccentric characters and general oddities. The main plot in each show is very random, Arakawa focuses more on gag comedy, and Jinrui is more set in a fantasy/future setting that's pretty 'out there'. If you enjoyed the bright visualizations and art style from either show, quirky characters, and/or pure fantasy/sci-fi setting I would recommend trying the other.
both jokes more about weirdo things. And you can't really imagine when it'll show.
The difference is jinrui tells more about fantasy world where human decrease and Arakawa tells about an eccentric MC living with a bunch of weirdo around.
Arakawa is one of Shaft's anime so how they show their jokes likes the other shaft's anime.
I actually watched Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita a few months ago, but when I finished Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryokou I felt like it gave off kind of the same feeling. You know, when everyone look happy and take life as it comes there's this omnipresent melancholic feeling that never really disappears. The characters are the last people on earth, they know it, but they still manage to overcome this feeling and live their life with a sincere smile, and I find it both really sad and heartwarming.
Oh, and the op and ed of both shows are absolute dope by the way.
Though these shows are near polar opposite aesthetically, they have a lot in common thematically. Both shows are introspective, reflective and in many ways satirical. Both offer a distant perspective of humanity's successes and failings through post-apocalyptic setting. Both shows are light-hearted on the surface, but neither is without its darker undertones.
These thought-provoking shows both offer a post apocalyptic world to explore, gradually answering your questions and constantly making you ask more. Making full use of their premises, the level of detail and variety in the worlds of Humanity has Declined and Girls' Last Tour is as impressive as their characters' philosophical explorations.
Both are really unique, have great colorful arts. The plots are deeper than it looks. One is fishing to save the world and one is dealing with fairies and black comedy aspect. Both are funny and fun to watch.
Both series contain a ton of absurd comedy that occurs out of nowhere as well as phenomenon.
Additionally, both series has similar artwork as well as a similar genre and feeling. Both are funny, amusing, and entertaining to watch as the series presents a peculiar mood throughout the episodes that involves the main character.
Bizarre is what describe both of these series but in a good way that is worth the time to watch.
Both anime have a similar feel, and both of them start off episodic and almost slice of life in their weird sorta supernatural way. They then go on to have a big crazy finale with a nice climax towards the end that emphasizes teamwork and how even in weird situations things will end up ok.
TLDR; Both Humanity Has Declined and Tsuritama have that same type of sorta confusing weirdness in them.
Though they're very different in setting, both are seinen comedies with lots of satire.
Other similarities are that they have unusual visual styles, non-linear storytelling, and internal monologues of a lead character whose name remains unknown throughout the show.
Both main characters (Watashi and Kyon) have very similar outlooks on life and get dragged into random events by the other main character (The fairies and Haruhi).
Personally I find the fairies more interesting and bearable than Haruhi, but both cause the worlds they live in to be a bit crazy.
A genderbent Kyon struggles with the weird faeries, which cause, just like Haruhi, countless supernatural and hillarious situations. Humanity has declineds broadcast order is also out of order, just like Haruhi's and some story archs in eighter series will remind you of a story arch in the other one.
The main characters in both shows are witty and sarcastic and have unique communications with tiny, cute creatures. A similar dark humor is frequently used in the two series that appeals to a more mature audience. Both shows also have clear morals about society.
A same general feel occurs between the two. The main character of each shares a style of narrating with wit and sarcasm. The most prevalent relation of all, however, has to be the small creatures that are in both. The fairies and microbes are for the most part happy little creatures.
Both are quirky shows that deal with small beings and their interaction with humans. In Moyashimon, microbes are perceived way bigger than their real-life size, making them about the size of fairies. Both have a really unique kind of humour.
I don't know why no one has mentioned this before, but I definitely think that jinrui was suitai shimashita shares many similarities with sabagebu. They appear different at first glance, but both involve some dark comedy (sabagebu more so) and have skit like scenarios, though jinrui actually has a bit off an overarching plot. Unlike jinrui, sabagebu leans a little towards fan service at times, but does so mostly for humor and on only a few occasions. Ultimately, if you just finished one of these series and are looking for comedy in the same ridiculous strain, I would highly recommend looking into the other.
Both shows are about the future of the world and the different races that interact with humans. Shinseki yori is darker, but they both are about with dealing with a new intellectual race. Also, while both are set in the future, neither have high technology and actually have even reverted back a bit. Both are pretty imaginative and I highly recommend them both to anyone looking for something new and refreshing.
JwSS is basically a version of SSy in which the humans and the others get along. Also, the people in JwSS seem to take the threat of becoming extinct rather lightly, whereas paranoia about this drives SSy's plot. The words of each, though, are mutually surprisingly similar.
While these two anime couldn't be more dissimilar in terms of art style, tone, and pacing, they do both explore the theme of humanity's decline as a species. Texhnolyze is a dark, slow paced, and extremely moody series that handles the subject matter in a very serious fashion. Jinrui wai Suitai Shimashita, on the other hand, is infinitely more humorous and colorful, though dark undertones are still present throughout. I would recommended both of these series to anyone who is interested in seeing a similar theme handled in two completely different ways.
Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita is basically Texhnolyze: The Comedy, as fucked up as that sounds (it is fucked up). JSS isn't soul-crushing or graphic, rather it makes light of humanity's tendency to take that extra mile we didn't need, turn it into a spiked dildo, and fuck ourselves with it. Obviously not for everyone, but if you're a miserable ass like me, you'll find Texhnolyze powerful and JSS hilarious.
Both are post-apocalyptic fantasies revolving around a protagonist who holds a title that entails interacting with fairies. Fairies play a important role in both stories. While one is more comical, the other is more tragic. Both protagonists take their job seriously considering few have held the position.
Both are very surreal in their setting and presentation. They feel much the same in terms of mood and atmosphere, although Jinrui is primarily a satirical comedy while Kino's Journey is more about the slice of life aspect. If you like witty humor and want to become lost in a strange world, both of these are a great pick.
Both shows happily take potshots at the industry, fans, and really anyone they feel like. Jinrui is more satirical, while Ange favors more straightforward parody. I think both can be very funny for viewers with the right sense of humor.
Both follow follow a female lead in her upper teens with non-human friends in an off-beat comedy, almost slice of life, josei story set in the future where there is a vague sense of dread underneath it's sugary sweetness.
Romeo Tanaka wrote the novels that both Jintai and AURA adapt. The similar writing style shows throughout both series, but AURA is grounded in reality and heavy-handed seriousness (with some great, realistic drama throughout), while Jintai is a far more surreal and playfully cynical work, with a hint of optimism and idealism thrown in there (but it can do drama just as well as AURA when it wants to). Despite their disparate perspectives, the characters are characterised and developed in similar ways. AURA is reminiscent of Jintai, without all of the surreal and more unorthodox elements. AURA is the later work, so it is easier to compare Jintai with AURA than AURA with Jintai. The most prevailing element that both series have in common is their propensity for social commentary; they just do it in very different ways.
If you liked Jintai, check out AURA--you'll probably like it. If you liked AURA, check out Jintai--you'll likely enjoy its satirical social commentary and it's quirky, sometimes overwhelmingly cynical (Watashi in particular is the darkly cynical heart of Jintai) characters. read more
They both have the "all-over-the-place" feel, so they both will require viewers to watch them several times before making sense of anything. They are also random, but in a good way, They both have eye-popping visuals, just in different styles.
While not similar in content, both are close to episodic mystery like anime following a nameless protagonist who help people out. They both use unique art styles and are incredibly interesting and satisfying to watch.
Joshiraku and Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita are highly meta in nature. Each take jabs at issues ranging from daily life to global politics. Breaking the fourth wall in both titles seem to be the case rather than the exception. Cuteness of the girls is ever present in Joshiraku and Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita.
Both have same characteristic joke. Like non-sense event that makes you say WTF. Well even though Jinrui wa has a plot with some event and Osomatsu has random plot, both have similiar twist in their ending
Both anime talk about the eventual decline of humanity and what people have do to survive after the destruction of the planet (Earth or otherwise).
Also, both are somewhat carefree at times.
Really good characters too!
I enjoyed both series a lot!
Kumiko and Watashi are very similar heroines, by their personality, their facial expressions/funny faces. They also tend to help others.
Besides they are the narrators of their series.(Kumiko for Euphonium and Watashi for Jinrui)
Despite their colorful appearance, both series incorporate serious themes in their plot.
both jump around in the storyline of their respective series, both have the main character narrate their thoughts in each episode. both are really entertaining and have serious elements, but mostly they are just entertaining comedy. A similarity would be the supernatural elements, but there isnt really anything similar plotwise
Humanity is dwindling and is in desperate need of resources in order to survive in both series. The setting is very similar and and both hold secrets and mysterious places. They both have girls with pink hair and green eyes as the main protagonists who are employed in a position that plays a vital role to the functioning of their town.
These shows both seem to incorporate many different genres in each arc including totally random stuff which you will probably never make sense of. Excel Saga occurs mostly in an urban setting and has a larger cast while Jinrui is more of a quite countryside kind of show.
Ever wanted to watch an entire series about happening inside Sana's Wonderland? I recommend that you watch Humanity Has Declined, which centres around a girl interacting with fairies-like whose powers create all sorts of craziness for her. Humanity Has Declined can be categorized as absurdist fiction so it's not for everyone. For those coming from Humanity Has Declined, Alice & Zouroku is a more standard anime. Zouroku would be a much more effective mediator than Watashi, but he only needs to handle Sana who has fairies-like powers.
Both series have a creepy twist on something that is supposed to have fairy tale endings. In other words, it takes the normal fairy tale and takes it back to the time of Grimm rather then the Disney fairy tale many of us know.
They are both extremely unusual. They make you wonder what the original creators could possibly have been thinking when they made these shows. Both Jinrui and Fractale are centered on the role of humanity in a distant future where the lives that we know today have all but disappeared. The stories are very different but the art is similar and both have great music. Also, awesome voice actors.
Both series have more or less have the same content that exploits human natures tendency to collapse due to corruption, misinformation, immaturity, ignorance & forced societal complementary.Self monologues are the highlight of both series though that would be obvious since the characters have introvert sides, also had a slow start due to foreshadowing, it also had four seasons without winter.
Only difference is that SNAFU is more straightforward and doesn't like to present things in a metaphorical analogies unlike JWSS does most of the time, it inputs real somewhat humane characters instead.
The two series deal with how mankind deals with 'new' humans. Food shortages, struggle for survival and despair are overarching themes.
Where as Titan tells a gritty shounen tale, Jintai presents a cheerful face that may appear childish but belies a very adult level of cynicism. There are strong parallels to be drawn between the two when homo sapiens no longer become the predominant species.
Both anime are short episodic-ish series that involve a main character who is often dragged into wacky adventures. Both series can be enjoyed from a pure comedic standpoint or can be seen through a more intellectual lens. For Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita, this takes form as a critique on human society and behavior whilst for Space Dandy, this is shown as life lessons that the characters go through on their adventures. I recommend enjoying a bit of both and letting the anime take you on an adventure without having to think too hard.
Both of these anime are rather quirky and fall into the hit-or-miss category, but if you liked one, you should definitely check out the other! read more
