Non Non Biyori is placed in rural Japan in a tiny town and focuses on the main cast's daily lives in school and out exploring the world around them. Non Non Biyroi sets a very calm and relaxed mood similar to Flying Witch. Flying witch is a coming of age story focused on a not-so-traditional witch who is sent off by her family and explores growing up and becoming an adult. Each series is slice of life genre with added comedy. If you enjoyed the pacing and atmosphere in either show I would recommend the other.
Both shows feature a main character that moves to the countryside and follows their lives adjusting to a new setting. Both have quirky random humor and are easy-going slice of lifes.
Only difference is in Flying Witch the main character is a witch, whereas in Non Non Biyori there is no magic.
Both Non Non Biyori and Flying Witch are set in a rural place with the main character (Makoto Kowata in FW, Hotaru Ichijou in NNB) moving there from a city. Both are calm and soothing SoL anime that one can enjoy any time they want.
The two differences are that a) in Non Non Biyori, the main cast consists of four girls of varying ages (and one guy without a voice, lol) while in Flying Witch, there's Makoto and two of her relatives, one male, one a young girl plus one other character per episode
and b) Non Non Biyori is purely SoL while Flying Witch brings some Supernatural elements into the mix (as one MIGHT guess from the title) read more
The countryside as a central setting of a story is often overlooked and underutilized; fortunately, both of these shows do some much needed justice in that regard. In both shows, you have a main character moving into the countryside and learning the "ways of the countryside", so to speak. The only main difference is that Non Non Biyori is much more humorous; Flying Witch incorporates a slow yet relaxing pace that is sure to calm any person after a long day of work.
KiKi's Delivery Service is a fantastic coming of age story that is full of whimsical fun, drama, a little romance, and enjoyment for a large audience. Flying witch takes a much more relaxed approach being slice of life with some added comedic relief. These shows focus on witches who are becoming adults and being sent off by their family to experience adulthood with their companion black cat. If you enjoyed watching Kiki's Delivery Service I would recommend trying Flying Witch to experience a similar story line and similar atmosphere in each show respectfully.
Flying Witch is the high school TV-series equivalent of Kiki's Delivery Service. Likewise, Kiki's Delivery Service is a pre-teen film equivalent of Flying Witch.
Both start with the similar premises of young witches leaving home to start their independent life far away from their family.
Adorably cute slice of life shows with a similar atmosphere and a hint of magic.
Both shows are a coming age story revolving around witches. General premise is that in both stories, a young witch sets out on her own to finish their training and become a fully fledged witch. Oh yeah, and they both have black cat familiars. Flying Witch has a slightly more relaxed and comedic atmosphere than Kiki's Delivery Service, but both are great watches non-the-less.
If you're into anime/movie that's got adorable and sweet witches and a good plot like Majo no Takkyuubin (Kiki's Delivery Service), then Flying Witch is definitely for you. And the MCs of both anime have similarities, e.g. Kiki = Makoto, Jiji = Chito, etc.
These two shows are about witches in training living a somewhat normal life with a bit of magic. They portrait traditional witches in a very simple but almost realistic way.
One could say Flying Witch is like a modern version of Kiki's Delivery Service. They are very peaceful and perfect if you're interested in classic witches and magic.
Would even recommend these two for people not fond of the Magic genre like me, because I enjoyed both.
The principles of witches in both animes are very similar. In both animes the witches travel out to different cities to find a city with no witch and become that city's witch. Both animes also have a very simple story lines which may appeal to both viewers in my opinion.
Both MC are witches. Both shows have strong female characters. Kiki Delivery Service is a masterpiece by Miyazaki (Ghibli Studio) so animation an design is far higher, nevertheless Flying Witch deserves a watch if you liked Kiki
Althought the settings of these two anime are completly different - listless boy / lively girl (witch) both of them are hitting the same relaxing spot. They are those rare iyashikei anime where nothing really happens but just watching it smooths your heart. Not to mention art is awesome in both of them.
Anime that both fully embody the idea of "Slice of Life" at it's core. Very calm, relaxing atmosphere 80% of the time, and the other 20% is pretty much guaranteed to be filled with great humor or touching moments. Especially when it comes to the humor, both these shows have a great sense of comedic timing, not being afraid to have some extra long pauses to really emphasis a joke to it's full extent.
-Both are relaxing and calm anime where really nothing happens
-Because of this, they have a unique type of comedic appeal that won't appeal to most people
-The standout of these shows is definitely the quirky characters
Tanaka-kun wa Itsumo Kedaruge and Flying Witch are anime that is a must watch if you want to relax or is tired from watching too much actions or such.These anime are incredibly nice to watch, nothing overwhelming, but nice enough for anyone to be hooked in.
Both shows are focused on slice of life, the artwork, pacing, soundtracks, and even the gags are very relaxing.
There may not be much difference except for the fact that Flying Witch has a supernatural tag.
A soothing and relaxing anime to watch. Each episode is discovered by new interactive situations that slowly but surely stimulate character development. The more the characters spend time with each other, the more enjoyable the unique episodes are played out.
Both series are very heartwarming and both have supernatural aspects to it.
You will have a feeling about exploring the world that's different from the usual boring human world (Youkai world in Natsume Yuujinchou, Witch world in Flying Witch).
If you liked one of these, I recommend that you watch the other.
-Both share the Slice of Life and Supernatural genre with Comedy elements
-Both set in rural Japan
-Both involving supernatural creatures and spirits
-Natsume Yuujinchou is more Drama focused whereas Flying Witch's focus is Comedy
Overall if you enjoyed one, you will enjoy the other as well.
Now I really don't know why flying witch has such a low rating, but I'll try to be objective here.
The Natsume Yuujinchou franchise is something that is held in a very high regard in the anime community and Flying Witch has similar aspects to it. They have got similar art styles and the same relaxing feel to it. Both shows have supernatural aspects to them that shows different characteristics that appear in each. If you liked the Natsume Yuujinchou series (which you should) then you should definitely give Flying Witch a try.
While Flying Witch is less gag-heavy and contains no fanservice, both shows contain fantasy elements, a mostly female cast, emphasize the importance of family, and are overall very easy and fun to watch.
Both shows are somewhat similar in terms of Slice of Life and fantasy elements. Both shows have a "cosy" vibe to them in which the main character goes through their everyday lives. Though Kobayashi has a heavier fantasy feel to it (think Dragons) and Flying Witch feels more of a Slice of Life show. Comedy in both are also pretty light but funny nonetheless.
Both of these shows are very calm. They have soothing music, beautiful sceneries, and slightly quirky characters. Also, both take place in rather rural areas. Both could be classified as "healing" anime and they're perfect to watch when you just want to unwind and calm down, and the occasional (but more common in Amanchu) silly and goofy gags are sure to put a smile on your face after a long and tiring day.
Both made by J.C Staff, 'Amanchu!' and 'Flying Witch' both have the same overarching lighthearted feel. The 'Slice of Life' genre is explored in both and each of the main characters move to a more rural setting, where they meet new people. The art style is comparable in both: highly detailed, brightly coloured landscapes and similar character designs.
The main differences lie in the two locations: the seaside in 'Amanchu!' and rural Japan in 'Flying Witch'. The former focuses on diving while the latter combines the supernatural with reality.
Both give a similar "relax and smile" vibe. Special to begin the day with a calm mind, escorted by great and relaxing music on these pure Slice of Life calmness.
Away from the city's dizziness and acoustic pollution. Amanchu! is located on the coast while Flying Witch is on the countryside.
Amanchu! is bit more cartoonish.
Slice of life genre with a lot of loveable characters! Although, I do think that Flying Witch is still slightly superior to Amaama to Inazuma, if you enjoy the slice of life genre, you are for sure to enjoy both!
Both are light, fluffy, and never fails to put a smile on your face (or tears in your eyes). Nothing really "exciting" happens but sometimes that's not always a bad thing. Also they both revolve around family.
At the core of these shows is relaxing atmosphere. They relay on presenting someone mundane activities with touch of supernatural. These shows follow mostly episodic structure, although Aria has somewhat more noticeable structure and goal.
Both Flying Witch and Aria (including The Animation, The Origination, etc.) are very calm and relaxing shows. The settings are very different but both series are about teenage girls starting out on new paths in life, and each show focuses on the small but memorable moments that make each day magical. Plus both shows have cats as important characters!
Both are lighthearted, relaxed, fun-loving shows that leave you feeling satiated. Some would make a point of calling them both Iyashikei (healing anime). Which is essentially saying both are chicken soup for the soul.
Both series belong to the iyashikei genre, in that both provide the audience with a soothing, relaxed feeling upon viewing. This is bolstered by the use of natural environments set away from the bustling cities, chill soundtracks that utilize acoustic instruments, and light-hearted humor from the (moe) characters. I enjoy both series for the feelings they invoke in me while viewing, so like-minded viewers may feel the same way
Both are Slice of Life shows with a relaxing, laid-back vibe. Yuru Camp is a group of cute girls camping and basically doing just that. Flying Witch is about a witch doing ordinary things that the average person would do every day, except for that part that she's a witch doing magic and flying around town on a broomstick, of course. Both shows have a beautiful background setting and a nice soundtrack that makes the viewer feel immersed in the show.
Chillax rural series with adorable country life titbits and small children who act like small children (they're even voiced by small children in Barakamon), and everyone else having designs that more or less fit their age.
Both shows are about the someone moving into the countryside to train in their craft/trade. Barakamon is the more drama heavy of the two and has a faster pace and fittingly it's set on a sunny island in the south, whilst Flying Witch is set high up in cold, cold Aomori.
Watch for warm and fuzzy countryside feelings (:
At the start of both shows, main characters arrive into rural environment where they spend their time. These shows focus on relaxing atmosphere and life in these rural parts of japan.
Main difference between these shows is the fact that Flying Witch has some supernatural elements while Barakamon doesn't.
Two of the most chill anime out there
Barakamon revolves around calligrapher named Handa Sei and how he spends time on an island to get inspiration for calligraphy.
Flying witch is about a young witch named Makoto who transfers to her cousin's high school where she spends days just living her 'normal' life.
Well, to state the obvious, both shows involve witches. These are supernatural-themed animes with plenty of comedic reliefs produced by the same studio – JC Staff. Story-wise though, the shows are quite different. In WCW, the focus is on the fight between the good and bad witches over the possession of the male MC’s power. Whereas in Flying Witch, the focus is on the life of the female MC who moves out of home to the country to become independent by witches’ standards.
Both of these anime shows (including Flying Witch and Witch Craft Works) are produced by the same animation studio J.C.Staff. Flying Witch and Witch Craft Works both tell about the life of witches during their everyday lives. Meanwhile, Flying Witch starts with a main female character who is already a witch but she still needs some training to improve her skills but Witch Craft Works starts with a main male character who is also destined to be a witch and is later being trained by a female witch to improve himself as being a male witch. Both shows showed the bonds being shared toward the main protagonists with the other witch characters.  read more
To be blunt, in my opinion, Flying Witch is a sort of mediocre Slice of Life anime and doesn't at all compete with K-On!'s great execution and consistency of interest. However, they show a lot of the same general aspect of humor, art style, and in some ways; character design. If you love Yui Hirasawa. you might like Flying Witch.
Both shows here deal with your every day slice of life, but with a touch of the unknown to lighten up the show. Watching Flying Witch will leave you with the same wholesome and charming effect that both of these shows manage to capture leaving you with a smile on your face as your heart gets warmed by it.
Both series are heavy in the "feel good and relaxed, with an innocent smile" side of SoL's. Also, they share the element of magical/mythical beings and the supernatural as a normal thing for their main characters.
Kamichu is similar to Flying Witch in the fact that both the main characters are high school girls and have supernatural abilities. In Kamichu the main character suddenly becomes a God, while in Flying Witch the main character is a witch.
Kamichu! and Flying Witch both offer a very relaxed countryside or small town experience of the supernatural element (Shintoism or magic respectively) permeating the every day life of a small group of characters. This can lead to some comedic moments but is also played straight most of the times in order to advance in the episode.
Each episode is also a self contained story although Kamichu! does have an underlying thread tying things together that feels a lot more obvious than the one in Flying Witch.
If you're in the need for something to wind down, give either a try. I don't think it will be a disappointing experience. read more
Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou (both the first OVA and the second, called Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou: Quiet Country Cafe) and Flying Witch are both healing, calming animes. Both rely on quiet character interactions and relatively small but meaningful occurrences to determine the story -- plot is not so important. The settings are different, but both pay a lot of attention to the natural world and its importance to daily life. Both shows will leave you feeling at peace, but also somewhat sad because you know they have to end.
This two shows have a pretty cool similarity, that i'd recommend you to watch if you like one of them. Flying Witch and Mahoutsukai Precure!? both retain the slice of life element were they both have tried to keep their witch powers hidden from others. Both openings are lovable if you watch it long enough that is. Although Flying Witch does not have a evil encounter like Mahoutsukai Precure!? does they both are pretty enjoyable if your the type that watches animes with little to no romance and shounen action this is the show for you.
You like witches? this got witches
Kuromajo is more childish and energetic than flying witch but it is about a girl in witch training and he wacky adventures of juggling both her normal and magical life
Both anime series always eat in a cute a way, eat together with love. Flying Witch show is also steadily making me want to eat more healthy types of things lol
They have similarities to the protagonist and friends around it. They're both slice of life but Flying Witch is a supernatural genre. The anime is pure, cute, calming & chill. You're in for a treat! They're both great show. Little unfocused, little short, but wonderful art direction, very chill.
Aaaaaand, Flying Witch was wayyy better than Koufuku Graffiti! if you're anime type is Koufuku Grafitti, try Flying Witch. I'm sure you'll love it!
Flying Witch is about a girl, a witch live in town with her relative.
This anime shows about her life after moving to the town with her relative. there's some magic stuff on the show and it's perfect if you want relaxing anime like Tsurezure Children. mind you there's no romance. but it's cute and cure your mind.
This show is a slice of life with some witchcraft on it. all episodes will make you relax and refresh your mind. the animation is very smooth and very nicely done. perfect for all ages!
Easy-going, soft feeling, slice of life anime for both of them. Rather than focusing on all the plots, twist and turns in a lot of stories these days, these two focus on a more straight forward everyday stories in a relaxing tone.
Both are supernatural slice-of-lifes set in the country. They are slow-paced and have some comedy every now and then. Personally I find Flying Witch more engaging, and I like the characters more. Mokke has darker elements to it, and the tone is less happy and carefree. If you're looking for an anime similar to Flying Witch but more serious, Mokke may interest you.
Flying Witch and Engaged to the Unidentified are bright and uplifting anime with cheerful and fun openings.
I love that they both have fantastical societies that most people are unaware of, and being able to get a peak into what society could be like with these changes.
They also have endearing and quirky characters which I don't want to say goodbye to when the series ends.
If you are looking for the daily life of different people in a fantasy world then you will like any of those two anime.
The difference between the two is that Hakumei to Mikochi presents a entirely new world, while Flying Witch only incorporates magic, and other fantasy elements, into our world.
Both anime are very calm, peaceful and are full of comedy. Both have a hint of magic/supernatural.
In Fruits Basket, the supernatural is more of a main idea, while in Flying Witch it isn't necessarily the center of the story.
Also, Fruits Basket has more romance to it, although it isn't followed through. Just a sprinkle of it.
The moment I saw the main female character I got Sankarea in mind, its very similar in drawing, personality and talking style, note both animes have completly different plot, sankarea consists in a zombie fanatic who wants to have a undead girlfriend and Flying Witch is a slice of life with a witch as the main character.
Although the differences I think if you liked Flying Witch and like zombies you will like Sankarea.
Both are slow-paced, slice of life with adorable, warm characters. Himouto! Umaru-chan is more of a comedy than flying witch. Both involves the theme of growing up and has a good sibling relationships.
The anime are slice of life in modern day Japan where mages are seemingly accepted (more so in Mahou Tsukai, since many people don't know about magic in FW). The main character is a girl that can do magic. Mahou no Tsukai takes it in another direction with the MC getting schooled on how to use magic, while in FW the main character seems to do magic all on her own. The imagery in both anime is very nice to look at and the mood is calm.
Both have to do with magic and with someone leaving their home and making another home somewhere else. The music for both is very calming and they have the same kind of lighthearted atmospheres. Anyone that likes one will definitely enjoy the other.
