The story starts as the Main Character enters a new school year. Both shows almost has the same personality with each character-- Renge as Yui, Natsumi as Ritsu, Hotaru as Mugi, and Komari as Mio. Every episodes of these series can be considered as a stress reliever that later ends into a very heartwarming feeling. The plot tackles about the cast's daily life which gradually strengthen their friendship and bond with each other. So, to sum things up, both shows is definitely not a waste of time to watch.
A peek into the daily lives of a tight-knit group of schoolgirls in a peaceful town, as they turn ordinary and routine occurrences into entertaining and memorable events. Vast majority of episodes are strictly comedic, but a few episodes include relatively light dramatic elements that provide much-needed depth and heart to an otherwise one-note show.
Both anime are focused around a charming group of girls. You could call it "cute girls doing cute things", but honestly, as cheesy as it sounds, it's so much more than that. These anime can be used for therapeutic purposes I swear. The thing about both of these anime that made me really fall in love with them are those occasional subtle moments of beauty and serenity a midst all the comedic chaos that makes me appreciate the smaller things in life. Both of these shows are relaxing in nature and can really make your day.
Curious and precocious kids with a considerate side, they're also a bit of a brat, too. They have adults watching over them and taking care of them and have some drama as well as a very slow pace. They learn things as they grow up.
