Yuru Yuri is like K-On with more characters and a giant love polygon. Very similar comedy and cuteness.

Visual similarity is the first thing people will tell you when you ask them why x show and y show is similar, because it's what you saw. Such is always the case with fellow all-girls, somewhat yuri anime. Yuruyuri, serialized in comic yurihime, is, of course, highly lesbianated. Teenage male audiences in general will find nothing wrong with this show. And even put aside the visual, Yuruyuri itself has some witty-funny dialogue and deserved to be judged by its content and not just visual. But there are people who will totally convinced by visual alone to watch or skip something, and I can't blame them, it's  read more

Its about 4 girls just hanging around talking about whats on their mind in both animes. There is the glasses-girl, the Otaku, the clumsy oversleep-all-the-time girl, the classic moe girls. Both hame similar drawing style being "fun" and lighthearted. Both of them misses any kind of real story, its just a lot of sketches of the girls doing sleepovers, missing homework and talking about stuff.

For Yuru Yuri and Kiniro Mosaic, the word "cute" comes to mind when describing each other. There is an all-female cast for both series that consists of cute girls doing cute things. They also follow a slice-of-life format rather than any direct storyline. It chronicles the girls' lives and what they do at home, school, and anywhere else. In Kiniro Mosaic though, there's a diversity of nationalities while in Yuru Yuri, there's more of a sense of diversity in personalities. Nonetheless, both series are something to grab as they inspire smiles and joy.

The second half of the name 'Yuru Yuri' describes both series perfectly. Both are light hearted comedies about girls who are into girls. Little more to say about them, really.

Both have an amazing cast and use some abnormalities for comedy, though Nichijou takes it to a new level.

Higher profile all-girls anime with some but not unacceptable lesbian tendencies (yes, there are MORE obviously lesbian shows out in the wild.) A-channel is the serialized series in a less obvious girl-loves magazine Manga Time Kirara. One of my favorite magazine that also home to the even more prominent anime such as Hidamari Sketch and K-On!. The positioning of this magazine doesn't allow girl to blatantly kissing or making out, thus is pretty SFW. And A-channel is a stereotypical Manga Time Kirara's manga, and same goes in its anime adaptation. No overly lesbian action. YuruYuri is serialized in Yuri Hime magazine. With more frank title, this magazine  read more

Both anime are about ridiculous middle school girls and their life. The characters are loveable and cute. Filled with hilarious dialogue and moe artwork. A little bit of shoujo ai in both animes.

If you like the slice of life comedy + yuri combination, you will like both of them. The setting is different though (Yuru Yuri has a tipical school setting, while Kanamemo is more focused on the life outside school - precisely at work), but the feel is definitely the same with a bunch of cute girls (mostly lesbians, of course) living their normal lifes filled with comedy, jokes and... well, yuri.

It's exactly the same show but in a major city. The main cast is all female There is no plot both are comedy Slice of life difference Yuru Yuri has 2 girls with glasses that fantasize that certain girls will become couples.

Both are about single-gender groups of friends doing hilarious things in a skit format. I got similar vibes when watching both. Both have a straight man with black hair surrounded by crazy characters doing crazy things.

Very cute character designs with yuri undertones. They also revolve around friends doing stuff at school. 
report Recommended by Ahegyao
They are similar due to their SOL and Comedy genre, both of them has a good artwork same with the animations, but Yuru Yuri has more Shoujo Ai vibes than Sansha Sanyou. Both of them are really interesting anime; it has a vibe that you will never get bored-vibe in some aspects. Both of them is really good. You will have a good time spending your time. Your time will not be wasted. It is worth watching.

Slice of life, Comedies. Kyouko reminds me Miu; Yui reminds me Chika. Their personalities are the same and is a very good combi! 
report Recommended by Kyyo
It has the same nostalgic feeling, loli characters, and cute romantic comedy, in different ways. Yuruyuri is more about 4 girls, it has a bit of shoujo ai, comedy, slice of life and school life. Acchi kochi has those except for the shoujo ai. Kyouko reminds me alot of mayoi from acchi kochi. Both are def recommended.

Similar theme & personalities within each characters.

Both are as similar as Facebook to Hi5, or Democrat to Republican. The shows are brushed up with similar art-direction, almost pastel color choice, character design, pace, and genre. The real example of style-parody. When someone say in easy English "the art is similar" this is what they mean, mostly because both shows share some staffs. Style-parody is not exactly a right word, they are officially sharing art-direction. Genre similarity is also difficult to overlook. They are slice-of-life comedic show with heavy effort on showing the relationship of sub-character with the main cast (Minami family/ four main Yuruyuri girls.) The original manga presents them both as a circle,  read more

Here you have a variety of charming, unique looking characters in a school and unproductive club setting. The two containing lighthearted comedy with little story progression, but having a fun atmosphere making you smile as you watch. 
report Recommended by Xerallite
Hilarious slice-of-life comedies about a club which exists solely for its members to slack off, as they take place in an all-girls academy there is heavy girls love undertones, albeit more heavy handed in Yuru Yuri. Both are incredibly high quality in comedic delivery and have similar character types, some of the best in the CGDCT genre and firmly stand tall among them. 
report Recommended by Jerkhov
Similarities: - Four or so cute girls have fun together as a club. - Lighthearted and somewhat silly tone. - Implications of yuri without ever forming official couples. Differences: - Yuru Yuri is more of an episodic comedy, while Hinako Note has somewhat of an ongoing storyline. - Similarly to above, Hinako Note is specifically about acting, while Yuru Yuri is just about girls hanging out. 
report Recommended by Achachan
One of the main characters is a blond-haired, blue-eyed middle school girl who really likes a particular magical girl show whose main character has pink twin-tails to the point of vaguely implied shoujo-ai on the part of the fangirl. The plots of each series are completely different, but it's an odd enough similarity that I think it's worth mentioning. 
report Recommended by Numi
Both are comedies about girls in a club. Both have a yuri feel to them.

Both are have hilarious moments you will love. The characters have the exact same personalities, with the same short height. One difference about both of these series, is that Teekyuu is very short with 2 minutes that you get mindfuck, and entertained.

Almost the same show. Four girls, unbelievably moe, and hilarious.

All female cast with lots of dialogue-driven zany comedy.

This show was basically Azumanga, but with less variety in jokes, and more lesbians. This is not necessarily a bad thing, because I loved Azumanga, and greatly enjoyed this show, as well. If you like gag comedies about cute girls, this show is probably up your alley.

Both are yuri/shoujo-ai anime with a lot of cuteness.

Himouto! Umaru-chan and Yuru Yuri showcases their strong points with the large serving of 'genki girl'; as Umaru-chan and Toshinou Kyouko does have their 'genki' similarities on being otakus, filled with events that fills each episode with silly nonsense, comedy and antics. If you're a fan of otaku-ness and daily dose of CGDCT moeness, these two shows are for you.

Both of these have batshit insane comedy that makes the other shows in their respective genres seem tame by comparison in terms of humor and weirdness. Both of them have plenty of characters that are lovably idiotic as well. KonoSuba and Yuru Yuri are a blast to watch when you want to laugh and have some light-hearted but insane fun.

There are no obvious Yuri stuff on Slow Start, but both has similliar atmosphere, by being a story about 4 school girls.

The main characters Tooru and Kyouko have a really similar... aura? ^^' Like, their crazy straightforward personalities, and their silly over-the-top actions, and the poses they make, and the way they talk, right down to their overflowing love for one of the other female characters, and the way they express it. It was killing me while I was trying to figure out who Tooru reminded me of, until I finally remembered Kyouko and everything clicked into place. Both of the shows are also really enjoyable slice-of-life/comedy animes that make the most of their really interesting and diverse groups of characters, and  read more

Yuri Yuri is basically this anime but with a larger production value. If the this short had a larger production, I feel both of these shows would be extremely similar. One of the main characters in Yuru Yuri Toshinou Kyouko also has the same voice actor as Azuki in this short. Azuki and Kyouko both have the same sort of quirky personality. All in all, Yuru Yuri is basically this anime but with a larger budget.

both are school-based, and both have girls who are candid (and usually comical) about sex, but where Yuru Yuri is between girls, Seitokai Yakuindomo is boy and girl.

Disregarding supernatural force in Nyaruko-san, they both are pretty much moe-overloaded comedy. Looking for anything that lacks a lead male with actual facial features? YuruYuri is a better choice for you here. All lesbian high school probably with aphrodisiac in all the cast's meals. The rate is not 18+ but if you are not those people who took anime for the love of life but know only Naruto and Dragon Ball, your imagination can probably crank it up a few gears. Yuruyuri is, after all, a moe comedy you see popping up a lot from Japan over the last decade. It's imagination inducing, fap inducing, or  read more

Lesbian-themed slice-of-life madness! Naoko-san is only one episode and is intensely perverted, unlike Yuru Yuri which largely stays away from that stuff, but both are very funny and fast-paced with jokes. If you like one there's a good chance you'll like the other.

Both are about "cute girls doing cute things" and have a slight shoujo-ai feel to it, though it's a little bit more than slight in Yuru Yuri.

Both are slice of life anime about random funny things happening to girls. There is violence in Jashin-chan Dropkick, but other than that, both are funny at their own rights.

My recommendation will be speaking on both the anime and the game series (spoiler free!). If you are a fan of the series, I highly recommend watching "Yuru Yuri". I was constantly reminded of the "Neptunia" games when I was watching it. Both series have a similiar type of humour, they are pretty much a parody because they don't take themself seriously at all. Alike Neptune, "Yuru Yuri" also has a very clear girls love subtext. Both have some fourth wall breaking going on.

Both shows are cute girl slice of lifes. In both there is an older sister is obsessed with a younger sister, though this is not the main focus of either show. There are also other yuri undertones in both shows. Yuru Yuri has a school club setting, while Kokoro Toshokan is set in a library. Yuru Yuri is more of a comedy, but Kokoro Toshokan is also quite comedic at times. Kokoro Toshokan is slower paced but is more heartwarming. Both are worth a watch.

Both are slice-of-life shows about a group of girls. Yuru Yuri focuses on a club where the members mostly just hang out together, while Locodol focuses on local idols who promote their community. Both have funny moments, although this is more prominent in Yuru Yuri. Locodol is slightly more laid back because it does not have a hyperactive character like Kyouko. Both have some yuri undertones, though this is much more of a focus in Yuru Yuri. Neither show has much drama, and they rarely have a boring episode. Both shows provide a warm and enjoyable atmosphere and are worth a watch.

Who needs manly men when you can douse yourself in fluffy feminine sweetness! Both Hanayamata and Yuru Yuri do exactly that my friends, no longer do you have to deal with harems that revolve around a brain-dead pervy guy, but instead focus on the adorableness that is girly girls~ Other similarities: *School setting *Club formation struggles *Comedy all-round *Shoujo Ai for the shippers out there :3 *A main character who doesn't stand out much and easily embarrassed *Directed to an older male audience I recommend both as they're personal favorites of mine cx

Both Yuru Yuri and Yuru Camp feature a cast of female students. Both are laid back and can be enjoyed casually (hence, 'Yuru'). Both feature the cast in a school club doing stuff together. Both have a cast of fun characters with varying personalities (Yuru Yuri is more over the top, while Yuru Camp is more grounded with their personalities).

Cute Girls Doing Cute Things. Relaxing comedy. No male lead. While Yuru Yuri focuses on short stories of random comedy related to amusing lesbian romance, friendship, silliness, school life, and slice of life. Comic Girls focuses on the goals that each main girl is trying to achieve.

The themes maybe far different from each other. Harukana Receive is about beach volleyball with fanservice while Yuru Yuri is comedic CGDCT and school life. but they both have the similar format. at least 99% of the population in the anime is (good-looking) females. and yes, there is GL subtext too.

Cute girls doing cute things vs. cute boys doing not-so-cute things. Both animes relies heavily on comedy and the complex web of relationships between the main casts. In Hetalia there's much more information about the history of the countries' relationships for centuries, Yuru Yuri focuses more in the daily lifes of the all-female cast. Other thing that Yuru Yuri shares with Hetalia is the homosexual tendencies of the characters, the former is much more pronounced in the yuri aspect, while the latter tends to be implict on the yaoi.

Yuru Yuri and Konobi (abbrv) are gag animes that focus on comedic happenings in their club. Additionally, both have similar characters that secretly admires one of the main characters (Toshino Kyouko of Yuru Yuri and Uchimaki Subaru of Konobi) Their cute attempts to get closer to their crushes will make you root for them unconsciously.

Both animes have highschool girls that tries to recruit enough members to create a club, and has a story that is mainly centered around them, but Saki Achiga-hen is more of a serious sports club while Yuru Yuri is only a "Slice of Life" type of anime and their club is more lighthearted.

Relatively cute and innocent GL anime that don't focus on sex/fanservice. If you're looking for cute fluffy yuri with lots of moe these two are your best bets.

Another 4 girl ensemble, although upotte has a more serious tone, (not by much), has a story and the characters have more background, and it has actual action. FNC reminds me alot of Akarin, the way they are. Yuru yuri is more comedy and slice of life than anything, but the characters are all enjoyable and every episode is entertaining. So if you like one, i recommend the other.

They're both hilarious slice-of-life and the humor is to appeal to a certain audience (you know who you are! ^^) Doujin Work is all about doujinshi and has a cast of mostly cute girls (and Justice).

In Yuru Yuri, there is one girl who likes to make doujinshi (Kyouko Toshinou), and there is an episode involving her dragging her friends to Comiket.

- The two main characters are equal! In fact, the two main characters are very similar, both are similar in design and in the stupids attitudes and they can't do anything alone. Although Gakkougurashi be an apocalyptic world and have zombies, the character gets along very well on it, so it appears to have psychological problems and continues to live in the normal world in hers mind. However, the anime can be fun too. In Yuru Yuri, we have a lot of fun and funny, and that makes us laugh a lot!

I haven't seen this anime being recommended alongside YuruYuri's so I'll be recommending it; although not as yuri or shoujo-ai-ness, but Stella Jogakuin has the same girl-admiration-ness placed on its plot elements. Also, fans who enjoy YuruYuri and school-life as well as slice-of-life will find enjoyment on this anime.
