Slice of life, comedy. Minami-ke is probably better when it comes to comedy since the jokes are too obvious (the comedy in Lucky Star is related to anime and you need to have watched quite a lot to get all those). Oh yea, Lucky Star is much more slice of life than comedy (and vice versa with Minami-ke). In short, i enjoyed Minami-ke a bit more but they are both highly recommended if you are a fan of the genre .
Like watching some eventful daily life of average anime girls? These two titles are for you. One is very laid back with extreme reference to today's real life Japanese society and the other is done in chapters-styled episode involving random activities.
They're both comedies and slice of life shows and they're both very random and funny. Lucky Star is a lot more 'laid back' though, while Minami-ke isn't as 'laid back'. Also, Lucky Star has several references to the Japanese culture and to several anime.
Both these animes are just random & hilarious.
There isn't any plot for both of them but the story centres around daily conversations & interactions between the characters of the show.
Lucky Star already ended & IMO the most worthy anime to fill the place left by Lucky Star would be Minami-ke.
Both anime concentrates on a few girls' life. It's like watching the life of some random girls, only that it's not in real life. Both are funny and hilarious, and there's no plot for both of the anime.
The two anime are quite alike in spirit and humor. However, Lucky Star is more childish while Minami-ke is more mature even though it shares the same weird sense of humor that'll make you smirk to the very last moment of the series.
Both of these series are hilarious. One follows the daily life of three young sisters, the other follows the daily life of four high school girls and their friends. And there's no plot besides that XD Both are very random and fun to watch. Lucky Star does a lot of parodying of other anime and has a more slice if life aspect, but both series are still incredibly similar. I'm pretty sure if you enjoyed one, you'd enjoy the other XD
Both of these anime are just to watch for something relaxing and for a good laugh,they feature multiple characters and have a soft artstyle and have a story mostly centred around a group of friends messing around. There's nothing extreme or serious going on and neither of these series take themselves seriously so both are good to watch when you just want to have a laugh.
The daily lives of the girls activities, either it is moe, cute, or random funny moments. The story is slice of life comedy focusing on the girls activity, usually an all female cast doing something fun. Not much of a story, but you will find them a likable cast until the end of the show.
Lucky star, follows the daily lives of four high school students doing what they do best and basically a lot of popular culture. Minami-Ke follows the daily lives of three sisters who goes to different grade schools and often have a large cast.
While Ichigo Mashimaro was able to maintain its innocent humor across many releases, Minami-ke's first season was the only successful attempt at a funny slice-of-life anime of that particular franchise. They share the same humorous elements and can provide you with many minutes of laughter. I recommend you quit watching Minami-ke after the first season to avoid disappointment.
The two shows have a similar brand of humor that searches out the absurdity and silliness of every day life. There's just something about the timing and style of each that reminds you of the other in a good way. I was laughing out loud during both of these shows and would definitely recommend you watch the other if you liked one! XD
Enjoyed the style of the humour from Ichigo Mashimaro and can't find something similar? Minami-ke is a series that works in a similar way, both of them are simply the daily lifes of a small group of people, in this case the Minami sisters. The presentation of humour is rather similar to that of Ichigo Mashimaro, nothing over the top, but enough to get a chuckle out of certain scenes. The Minami sisters are also quite similar to those found in Ichigo Mashimaro; Chiaki is very similar to Chika, though she's the youngest of the sisters. She easily gets annoyed by her older sister Kana who has major similarities to Miu. Kana likes to be childish and annoy her youngest sister and is usually a silly even at school, getting low grades and being scolded by Chiaki. Then there's Haruka, the eldest who practically watches out for the two quite similar to Nobue though she isn't exactly laid back. Each episode (so far) is presented with what the sister's do during there days, life at school, life at home and the interactions they have with people or each other which kind of works like Ichigo Mashimaro.
If you've watched both Ichigo Mashimaro TV series and OVA and looking for something of similar humour and presentation, then I reccomend Minami-ke. read more
Like Ishimashi, Minami-Ke is a show about nothing. Literally. Both shows follow the lives of a few girls, from school days to days at the beach. Miu (Ishimashi) and Kana (Minami) are almost exactly alike, its as if Kana is the Junior high version of Miu.
If you liked Minami-Ke, you'll definitely love Ichigo Mashimaro, and vice versa!
Both are from the same genre - slice of life/comedy, and both tell the story in similar ways, using short segments throughout each episode to explore different parts of the characters lives. Both are hilarious, and both are a must watch.
Slice-of-Life with a bunch of unique school girls of varying hilarious personalities. Lazy writing means if you don't like one character you'll probably like another. Later on you can talk about it with your friends. "I like ____ more!! They are so much more funny!" Great conversation starters these anime are!
Minami-ke seems to draw stylistically from Azumanga Daioh in several ways. In short, if you loved Azumanga, then this enjoyable clone takes the formula of a character-driven narrative and throws in male characters. Kana (the middle sister of the Minami household) in particular seems heavily inspired by Azumanga Daioh. If you ever wondered what it would be like if Yukari and Tomo had a child this series is worth a watch.
In short, it's the exact sort of crazy humour that is in Azumanga Daioh, but unlike other similar titles like Lucky Star (which I still think is really good) it doesn't actually feel like a direct clone. Sure, in a sense it's just sisters instead of highschool friends, but it's enough to make it feel fresh and allows it to have the same genre and style as Azumanga without feeling like a rip-off.
I don't really see how anyone could enjoy Azumanga and not enjoy this really.
Not only are both of them slice of "school" life anime but both focus more on the tiny aspects of life rather than the characters that lots of other slice of life animes seem to do.
The difference is that minami-ke only deals with tiny aspects of life (in a hilarious way), whereas Azumanga Daioh is less realistic.
They are both slice of life comedy themed animes. The characters are funny and each of them has different qualities which makes the show perfect in both series. The atmosphere is almost the same. In Danshi Koukousei, it's about three high schooler boys and their friends while it's three sisters and the people around them in Minami-ke. Both are likeable are both male and female watchers.
Minami-ke and Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou are just animes you want to watch for a pointless laugh at wide range of characters and the way they can turn simple every day activities into something hilarious
Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou is only twelve episodes with one special whilst Minami-Ke has four seasons and one OVA. Both anime feel like a breath of fresh air after watching many serious anime or ones riddled with clichés. If you prefer a coherent story with lots of character development then neither of these are for you. If you're just getting into anime or you want to have a break from anime that take themselves too seriously then give both of these a go. read more
Both are comedy, slice-of-life anime, with a focus on a family of 3 sisters. Each individual has a stereotypic personality, which you can pretty much predict their responses/interactions to different situations. Both series will make you laugh out loud.
Comedy, slice of life, scenario based and can be adventerous are a trate both anime's share, aswell as the character types; the fact that both revolve around three very different sisters for a start:
- The oldest is a ring leader; in Minami-Ke, the oldest is said to be an ex gang memeber, whilst in Mitsudome, the oldest 'leads her class' and can be quite sinister
- The middle sister in both series's is hyperactive
- The youngest is quite intellectual, yet socially awkward, wears a aloff expression and is fairly quiet
Linked by a name and a common environment, separated by the rest. Masahiko Ohta directs these two animations that portrays the daily lives of three so different sisters. "Minami-ke" is well-behaved, familiar, slow, a true "slice-of-life" that if it doesn't generate many laughs, at least can give the viewer a good amount of light and warm stories. In turn, the restless "Mitsudomoe" is often inconvenient and controversial with his heavy and questionable jokes of sexual nature, made around sixth grade students - but it is hugely funny at the same time that is so wrong,
"Mitsudomoe" and "Minami-ke" are so opposite that in the end this recommendation may fail in what is its purpose: create a link between two similar works. At least, this is a rare opportunity to see two completely different visions of the same theme, devised by the same person. read more
Mitsudomoe and Minami-ke centers around the everyday life of three sisters, all of them with totally different personalities. Mitsudomoe is MUCH more twisted and dirtier than Minami-ke. Minami-ke has much more depth both in plot and carachters.
Both shows are very humorous in a very similar style. The art style is somewhat similar. Also, Kana from Minami-Ke and Tenma from School Rumble are very similar characters (cheerful, loud, dense and absolutely hilarious). There are also similarities in the sibling relationships (Tenma + Yakumo and the Minami sisters).
School Rumble, like Minami ke, will make you laugh time and again. It has characters with their quirks, randomness, and is overall a light hearted series. However, unlike Mimami ke, School Rumble does have a semblance of a plot. Both are funny and interesting.
Both anime series have an element of comedy and randomness in the episodes, following the daily lives of the characters and their relationships with each other. Both have a similar pacing: comfortable, without any fast pacing. Minami-ke basically focuses on the three sisters while Working!! on the part time workers at Waqnaria. In both all the characters have varied personalities with defining features. The visuals are also similar with both having bright colours.
If you like one then it is highly probably you'll like the other as well.
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, character who lead the show are in the middle of the circle, and are given more airtime. Each lead cast has their own friend/ acquaintances who are in the outer of circle. They interact with the lead cast and branch out the show's focuses into more than one group of friends.
That's about every similarities that can be described in words. The differences are less tangible and lie in something beside visual. Yuruyuri is heavily lesbian, while Minami-ke give a fair share to male character, so we gotta admit this one big difference. The less worth mentioning difference are target audiences (which is already implied by the earlier statement)and original manga key genre (pure comedy vs shoujo-ai based). read more
Minami-ke seems to be the twin sister of Today in Class 5-2. The most striking similarity is the "serious face" - i.e. when something weird/shocking/appalling happens, the faces aren't animated in the usual moe/loli (or whatever) idioms.
There's plenty of witless humor to go around, and a lot more pedo-fanservice as well.
The Minami-ke fan may be disappointed since there isn't really a Class 5-2 equivalent of Chiaki (there is a Chika, though), nor is there a Haruka, or any high school persona at that, but the cast is "diverse" enough to fulfill all the general archetypes as to not leave the viewer in rage at all.
Both shows are slow paced and relaxing with light comedy elements and they focus around a group of girls of different grades and ages and they give off a very similar slice of life feeling. While Non Non Biyori is set around the countryside and inside a small school with a small plot, Minami-ke has a wider variety of characters and is set in your average city and a lot of times in the Minami household. Minami-ke also has more male characters than Non Non Biyori while Non Non Biyori focuses mostly on the 4 female leads. Nonetheless the interactions the characters have is very similar in both anime.
If you like Non Non Biyori you will defenitely like Minami-ke and the same goes for the opposite. read more
In both series, there is tons of comedy, some of them completely random while others pops out of nowhere.
Both series has a similar feeling of humor, as Koharu Sakuraba is the creator of both series. Both series are lighthearted comedy with some fan-service but mindless entertainment for those who wants a good laugh.
The similarity of these two series are focus on the three main characters revolving in their daily lives on just normal activities. Not much of a story, but is mostly around the comedy, and funny characters interacting with each other. Finding an easygoing comedy shows, then this will be your answer
Minami-Ke follows the daily lives of the Minami sisters who are in different grades, age, and school. Yuyushiki follows the daily lives of three high school students who joined a club and interact with each other.
Both shows deal with a group girls going through everyday life.
Both feature characters that follow through on their own twisted logic to make everyday occurrences absurd.
Both alternate between low and high energy moments. Though overall Yuyushiki is probably a bit louder.
Comedy with fan-spread characters relationship. Center of attention get most airtime, characters from outer scope of interest get relatively lesser and lesser appearance.
Minami-ke focused on three sisters, and spread out to respective friends of each.
Pretty much the same for Pani Poni, the show focused on main character in 1-C and there are characters from other classes a little bit away from center of attention.
Character appearance distribution is pretty handy because all characters get to show off their uniqueness sooner or later, and not all audience are rocket scientists, they don't remember all characters at once. Both show became successful comedy with large casts thanks to this whatever technique. read more
Both are simple anime where there isn't much of story to be told throughout the entire anime. They both have simple sketches in which they add humor in and usually every episode consist of multiple sketches.
They both “something” in multiple scenarios. For example, Acchi Kocchi it’s Tsumiki crush on Io, and in Minami-ke it’s Makoto’s cross-dressing.
And final (although most don’t consider this to be a reason to watch an anime) both anime have similar openings
Both are similar in the sense that they're rather funny but they don't overdo the humour. Both are interesting and funny in their own right and the 2 anime involves romance ( although not so much in Minami-ke
If you liked Minami-ke, you will probably like Kimi to Boku. Both stories don't really have a plot, they're just about several characters and how they spend their time. While Minami-ke is about 3 sisters, Kimi to Boku is about 5 male friends. Both are very humorous.
Both are slice of life animes and really good too. Minami-ke focuses a little more on comedy and nothing bad ever happens but when you watch it you still get the same feeling. It's like watching ordinary people in their every day life.
Both are about three sisters with parents missing, family happiness, sisters and brothers, boys and girls. Then connection seemingly ends, with "Minami-ke" being mostly a school comedy, much lighter and cleaner, but the two are somehow congenial.
Minami-ke and Mayo Chiki positively express both comedy and relationships. These anime share very similar genres and energetic characters. Along with that, they are both fairly light-hearted comedies with more emphasise on comedy.
Both are slice-of-life comedies focusing mainly on the lives of those living in one particular household. Both have a predominantly female cast though with a few important male characters. Also there is a male character in both shows who must cross-dress in order to be allowed into the household where the women live. A difference between them would be that Kuragehime actually has a plot and romantic progression, while Minami-ke focuses more on day-to-day activities and never advances the romance aspects.
both pretty much have the same thing going on: sisters only having each other to depend on, money issues, arguing and making up, and younger siblings worrying about the oldest leaving them. each are enjoyable series that will make you either laugh or feel sad depending on the situation.
Minami-ke has a similar art style and the characters share similar dispositions. Chiaka hitting Kana reminds me of Riko and Maki. Riko constantly points out whats wrong with everything as Maki does something stupid. Kana and Chiaki do pretty much the same. Uchida and Makoto are similar to Tanahashi with their klutzy behavior. The theme songs are also similar.
I think the main difference would be plot. Love Lab's plot is trying to understand love. Minami-ke is just the daily life of the Minami sisters, and is pretty much plotless.
Both are school comedies that primarily feature female characters but also include a couple important male characters. Every time I saw Kotone in Softenni, I thought of Kana from Minami-ke because they have a very similar character design and are also both very energetic. Minami-ke focuses more on daily life, while Softenni is more concerned with tennis. Softenni has much more fanservice, but it is often used for comedic purposes.
Fluffy random slice of life comedy. Kana and Ichika also have similar chara design. But the most important point is triangle/water-drop-shaped mouths. So if you like waterdrop-shape mouth you should try these anime.
Milky Holmes actually does have a plot, no matter how wimpy and lame. Both contain a sort of moe theme as it is the relationship of a group of girls who make bad puns, and get locked into stupid situations that just don't make sense. While the anime themselves are fairly different, the comedy is very similar.
Anyone can run a production system for bullets since they are made to be exactly the same. However, only gifted script writers can produce infinite amount of conversation that always do a clean shot at your laughing nervous system.
Nichijou and Minami-Ke make jokes with words. This two shows are wordy I can't deny that, but they are still pretty funny even after translation. That make a potential comedy that can air anywhere in the world. While Japanese comedy anime have a lot of overacting used to deliver jokes (even the prestigious Gintama go overacting very often,) Nichijou doesn't rely much on them (there are still some, for sure.) Minami-Ke somehow didn't use it at all. You won't see any anime that is as funny without the use of overaction any time soon.
I will still recommend you to watch Minami-Ke if you find Nichijou funny anyway. Funny conversation, wordy but not boring, and living ordinary life in a distinctively strange way are the shared values of both shows. read more
The art style is completely different, but apart from that the series are quite similar. Both are about the daily life of 3 sisters, only in the case of Uchi no 3 shimai they are a bit younger and rather than friends and other family members it's their parents "suffering" from them.
Both series are really funny and light hearted imho.
If you've watched anime like Minami-ke and Lucky Star, then Manabi Straight would be a good choice to watch for another "slice of life" anime. Seiyuus of Konata popularly known from Haruhi (Lucky Star,) and Kana (Minami-ke,) as well as many other well knwo VAs are in this comedic anime.
Several of the characters are very similar in looks and in personality. The teddy bear is in both, Kana is like the high-energy Mikan, Touma is like Natsume, Chiaki is like Hotaru, and the list goes on for similarities. Mikan and Hotaru are best friends and fight exactly like Kana and Chiaki.
Aside from the characters the only other thing similar is that they are both comedies.
Okay... this might be a wacky recommendation, but I kind of think you'd like one if you like the other. They're both slice of life comedies that focus on absurd and hilarious exaggerations of mundane events in clever and surprising ways. Sure, one is about sisters and the other is about delinquents, but still... maybe you'd like it?
The similarity is the main characters personality: the perfect words to describe Minami Kana (Minami-ke) and Onimaru Miki (Muteki Kanban Musume) is: 'totally idiot!' They always come up whith crazy ideas. And the idiots gather more idiots, it's doesn't matter if it's a young boy, who want to buy a bra or a dog with high fighting skills.
Both Mimami ke and Ouran will make you laugh time and again. They are funny, can be poignant at times, are mostly random though Ouran does have something of a plot. Though they are not entirey similar (no anime can be), if you like one then there is a high chance you will enjoy the other.
Both series has a lot of comedy in them, both has a "baka" character in them, one of the main characters has someone liking him and he/she doesn't realize it(kana&fujioka, akhisa&himeji), both has school in them, and main characters in both are living withought their parents.
If you like comedy, and like one of the series, you should enjoy the other one.
Main characters in both anime are schoolgirls) Well, maybe it's all what can be common - but maybe not ;)
While Minami-ke is more slice of life and school-relationships, High School Girls - it's fun, fun and even more fun.
So... if you still didn't grow up from schoollife - both anime would be a good time-spending ;)
