Both are school animes that focus on the main character and how he's loved and respected by all from their respective schools. The main difference is that in "Sakamoto desu ga?", Sakamoto's clout is well earned as he is amazing at everything he does, while in "Handa-Kun", Handa is the most popular kid in his school solely though the fact that it's a giant misunderstanding which never gets rectified.
Both anime deal with a student who stands out. Sakamoto desu ga has a protagonist who is famous because he does crazy things, while Handa kun has a protagonist who has a huge reputation built on a series of misunderstandings. Both series have similar type of humor.
Handa-kun and Sakamoto are so alike, it's almost scary.
Both of the shows have almost the same premise: a teenage boy just wants to live their life but somehow every action they do attracts the attention of their peers and they gather unwanted attention and fame. Handa-kun is more lowkey about it than Sakamoto, as Sakamoto is naturally cool and praised for, but Handa is naturally not cool, but somehow seen as naturally cool and praised for it too.
If you enjoyed Sakamoto, there's a 90% guarantee you will enjoy Handa-kun too, and vice versa. While they do seem like almost the same show, they're separate hilarious tales read more
Sakamoto Desu ga? and Handa-kun both have a pretty popular mc. They are both comedy anime. Whereas the difference between the shows is that in Sakamoto Desu ga? the mc is popular because of his actions. While in Handa-kun it is mostly because of misunderstandings that have a positive outcome on the mc's reputation.
-Both are about an average looking high school boy who ends up looking cool in whatever situation you put him in
-Both have a similar style of humor and similar character design
-Both have a similar setting and story setup
Both Of the Main characters Are extremely Popular where all the school is crazy about them and they always somehow manage to make believers by acting in stupid ways and solver problems indirectly where they dont want to
Both shows are about a MC that is "too cool for school"and worshiped by their entire class, though they aren't really aware of how fondly they're viewed by their classmates. Handa isn't as smooth as Sakamoto, but they're similar all the same.
Highschool popularity! Isn't it great? Both Handa & Sakamoto are overwhelmingly popular, and "perfect," or at least on the outside... Both shows have a very similar artstyle, quality of animation. Both are hilarious, & have a very similar type of humor/comedy. Overall, both are insanely similar.
Do you love a Main Character that is so awesome that everyone in their school idolizes and loves them? Well, both Sakamoto and Handa are the cool, cooler, coolest around! Sakamoto is the "perfect" student and everything he does is over-the-top, while Handa-kun is a calligraphy genius and everyone around them gets fascinated by whatever they do. If you like one of the characters, you'll surely love the other too because they're almost in the same situation.
Both anime revolves around the protagonist in high school. The protagonists are popular and recognised by the school, having fans and rivals. They both show a great vision of Slice Of Life. Overall, they are a must watch.
First thought: WHY ARE YOU COPYING DANSHI?? (the ball part)
But it was pretty good, similar comedy and settings, both does not actually have 1 story, just a SoL with a pretty good comedy
I think if you like danshi, you probably (if you don't have hate for the perfect guy) like this too
Ok, granted, NOTHING can stand up to Sakamoto in terms of Sakamoto-ness, but out of all the choices out there, I feel Danshi Koukousei is the one that at least comes close to being like... 1/3 Sakamoto. Both anime are heavily based on comedy and guys (and one on Sakamoto) and consist of multiple parts within a single episode connected through short transitions with a gag on their own.
The main and also the only important difference is that only one of these two anime is about Sakamoto while the other one is about several groups of friends and their adventures in their daily lives.
Both series are very similar in their comedic style as they both divide their episodes into 2 or 3 unrelated scenarios. The scenarios are completely random and unrelated and involves the adventures of high school boys doing weird and crazy things leading to a punchline at the end. Both series are directed by the same person so if you like one I can assure you that you will love the other.
-Both slapstick comedy
-Both ironic parodies
-Centered around daily life at a school setting
Sakamoto is about a guy who is "perfect," but if you liked one there is almost no doubt that you'll enjoy the other
Basically the same type of humor, where the main character is overpowered and has a great influence on his class, while his classmates are totally unaware of it. Both are full of absurd, yet wacky and unexpected situations.
- Deadpan protagonist. Deadpan to the extreme.
- Gag comedy with a rough premise and wild happenings.
- School setting. Gakurans.
Sakamoto is outrageous but is very quiet and does not retort much. Saiki on the other hand, is silent in setting but has a very consistent tsukkomi-ing internal voice.
Both animes have a very similar form of comedy - generally light, slightly dry and neither take themselves too seriously. Alongside the comedy, both have enjoyable soundtracks, interesting characters (though minor apart from the mc), and pretty high quality artwork!
When watching Saiki K, I was immediately reminded of Sakamoto desu ga? because the humour is so similar. They both feature jokes and skits that involve the side characters who are for some reason obsessed with the protagonist. The antics of both shows are really silly and rather than labelling them as comedies, I'd say that they're both 'gag' anime.
Saiki and sakamoto deal with the same sort of situations with a similar attitude, just with completely different methods. If we could hear sakamoto's thoughts like we can saiki, they would probably be very similar. I wouldnt be surprised if sakamoto was a psychic as well lol.
The protagonist of both stories are the central humor to both stories as they're quite oblivious of their actions which is the reason of the comedic episodes of the anime. Both characters are particular perfect while Aoyama-kun is more of a soccer pro, and everyone else around them are full of ideas as to how to interact with them while the character himself stays oblivious.
They both have comedy and not a real story line
While one is "sports" anime and the other not
One is a clean freak and other just pure awesome
In both they have some sort of story
Both are just really comedy even though aoyama does have more on a genre( sports)
Just give Keppeki Danshi a try.
These two shows center around popular main characters who both are known for their perfection and selflessness. Even though the protagonists of both shows have a large and positive backing, both characters on a daily basis face obstacles planted by others as the result of competition, which are always dealt with in unexpectedly smooth ways.
Nichijou and Sakamoto are both equally similar in how they execute the humor. In both shows, the main characters are all put into extremely ridiculous situations. Consequently, they are all forced to think on their feet, which causes them to respond with overexaggerated emotions and humorous actions that often do not make any sense. In Nichijou, however, the humor revolves around 6 main characters; In Sakamoto, it's just, well, Sakamoto.
Two high-school anime which follow a male student as he endeavours on comical mishaps.
Although Tonari no Seki-kun doesn't follow a perfect student and he seems more quiet and isn't acknowledged by the whole class: Yokoi acknowledges Seki-kun in a similar way that Sakamoto's class see's him.
Both of the anime are episodic, however knowledge of the previous episodes is useful while watching the anime.
The one thing which makes main characters of these shows interesting is their seemingly limitless creativity. This is the main source of humor in both of these shows. Although, Tonari n Seki-kun also relays on additional character, who's reactions and interactions with main character add even more humor.
They are both about a peculiar student in a class, and set in a high-school. Seki is much more reserved than Sakamoto, but overall, they both have a similar sense of humour and are hilarious to Watch. The ambiance also feels familiar.
Both protagonists are exceptionally skilled at what may be considered substandard hobbies. The humor from both series comes from the surprising degree of skill their leads portray in these underrated hobbies.
-Hard to predict what Seki and Sakamoto will come up in each time.
-leading to unexpected humorous
-Seki-kun has only few minutes per episodes
-Seki-kun is purely focusing on killing time during class
-Sakamoto is like whatever sth happen to him, he always look cool.
Which one is better?
Just watch both of them.
A new member joins a class and over the course of the show, changes the dynamic entirely. That is the premise of both anime. The main characters of GTO and Sakamoto desu ga? are very similar in their actions and the effects that they have on their classmates and students. They help people with their problems in a comedic and dramatic way, forever changing the lives of the people around them. They turn their enemies into friends and have a knack for swaying people to their sides. The comedy in both anime are two sides of the same coin. The humour in Sakamoto desu ga? is found in the fact that Sakamoto is an unattainable level of cool, and that he turns even the stupidest things into favourable situations for himself. GTO, on the other hand, finds its comedy in Onizuka, who, although very cool in his own way, often ends up making a fool of himself and finding himself as the butt of his own jokes. With similarities in the characters, setting, and even the way their stories unfold, I'm sure if you like one you may well like the other. read more
Both GTO and Sakamoto utilizes the "us vs. them" mentality. Initially, at the start of the show, the main character in each show is on their own. They receive practically no support from other people and are pestered incessantly by a series of antagonists. However, as each show progresses, the antagonists in each show is essentially "converted" and befriends the main character. They begin to see why the main character behaves the way he does.
- What main character did is unexpected
- Sakamoto always keep his coolness but Onizuka didn't care of how other will see him as.
Which one is better?
shouldn't miss out any of them
These series revolve around over-the-top situational "gag" comedy expressed in a deadpan manner from the main characters involved. Sakamoto's actions mirror that of the everyday lives of the Cromartie Highschool attendees. They rely on slapstick humor to add a bigger punch to their comedic gags. They're also both set in a high school full of delinquents and are carried out in a similar SOL fashion. If your sense of humor gravitates towards this "deadpan meet absurdist" style of comedy, then what Sakamoto and Cromartie play around with would feel right at home with you.
Both series are very off the walls in their comedic style and leave you in stitches due to how stupid some of the humour is such as Sakomoto being able to run on walls whilst Cromartie has a gorilla and a robot as classmates. Both focus heavily on the lives of delinquents and involve lots of hilarious adventures with them in various comedic skits
the story about people who have unique personalities that different with the other and the setting in school. tanaka is about his listless and sakamoto with his motto " do it with style" for doing anything . both series is funny with their jokes.
Sakamoto achieves perfection in everything he does, while Tanaka strives for a listless life. The protagonists are the polar opposite of each other, but they're also very similar. They both unintentionally help their classmates, and have the same attitude.
You must be wondering, why the fuck is this guy recommeding one punch man for this anime, simple:
Both animes are satire for overpowered (one punchman), overcool (sakamoto desu ga). Both animes has comedy as a main genre and explore it in similar ways. While Saitama is not believed to be that strong, other characters would provoke him until they are amazed by his strength, same happens with Sakamoto as he is provoked and end up being admired.
Both are school-centred, ridiculous and over the top comedies. Sakamoto focuses more on the one character while GSNK has a main cast, but both series have similar humour, are light hearted and entertaining.
In both Sakamoto and Gekkan Shoujo, there is an interesting, colorful supporting cast that really help provide an opportunity for the main characters to shine. This is usually elicited by the way the characters interact with each other. Furthermore, both shows use a more situational-based form of comedy - in other words, whenever they are in some situation, the characters use humor to point out how ridiculous their situation actually is.
Both shows are school-centered gag shows that place a premium on ridiculous situations and pure comedy. Sakamoto Desu-ga? is more surreal, with elaborate set-ups at times, while Karakai Jouzu no Takagi-san focuses more on fast, frequent laughs.
Both are a comedic school series that consists of several segments per episode. And they both explore a single theme throughout the episodes: Sakamoto's "coolness" and Takagi's teasing. In addition to various subplots along the way.
I believe the humor is pretty similar, people try to make sakamoto look bad by
teasing him or making jokes, and then sakamoto finds a way to still be the coolest guy in the world.
And here Nishikata is teased by Takagi, creating funny situations where Nishikata tries to recover his honor.
I'd recommend Sakamoto for the comedy, both shows take place in a high school where the main character is at the top of the school in terms of social status. Sakamoto desu ga may not have the romance (unless you count Yoshinobu's mum) but the comedy is right on par, both shows are hilarious
Perhaps less than obvious, I kinda see Sakamoto desu ga? almost like a spiritual successor to Golden Boy. While very different with regards to the personalities of their leads, both shows revolve around an unorthodox "perfect" character whose bizarre behavior belies their capabilities, while interactions with them lead the supporting cast to strive to become better people. Sakamoto is cool, Kintaro is anything but, but their roles to the people around them are similar.
-Both Main characters have god-like powers that rival any other challenge they encounter.
-Both Stories have deep and complex symbolism that is only picked up by quick-witted people
-Both Animation styles reflect the animation of the time period
-Both Character seems to have an IQ comparable or above either Terence Tao or Morpheus
-Both soundtracks empathize the importance of the non-diegetic and diegetic sounds
Both animes are extremely funny.
They are both animes about high school life.
However, Sakamoto desu ga? is the complete opposite of Baka & Test in the sense that Sakamoto, the protagonist in Sakamot desu ga? is basically the perfect ace student of the school, so perfect that his actions create extremely comical and over-the-top scenes. Whereas the protagonists in Baka & Test are the most idiotic and stupid people in their entire grade, so stupid that their actions create extremely comical and over-the-top scenes.
Sakamoto desu ga? is all about over-the-top, absurd humor which quickly endears itself to you. In the same way, Baka and Test will leave you in tears with their ridiculous antics and crazy plots to overcome Class A. While the series are about entirely different material, they have a similar tone. Furthermore, if you liked the almost supernatural feel of Sakamoto's amazing abilities, then Baka and Test will definitely up the ante.
Both MCs have extraordinary abilities and can do everything in a spectacular way.
Both are initially antagonized by a group of characters eventually starting respect them.
Both have several enjoyable scenes in every single episode.
+ Both has a nearly perfect model student which no one can take down/do bad things for them...because those model students can handle hardships like nothing...
+ Every episode tries to glorify these model students like heroes of some sort...
+ Both are set in a highschool full of delinquents...
+ Both has decent artstyle, comedy style....except there is always salty haters..
+ Both MC's [Sakamoto & Medaka ] somehow manages to help supporting characters/antagonists in each episode and are essentially "converted" to befriend them...
- Medaka is like superior version of equality officer, and Sakamoto is just lone guy who helps others for no reason = good guys...
- Medaka Box has super powers in it, while Sakamoto desu Ga! is just your everyday life at school [ high level of SOL ].
Both features the same main characters whom were describe as a perfect model student that no amount of bad can get them, however while Medaka Box is about a gurl who is describe a a apex alpha female, Sakamoto is more of a lone wolf who prefers to be a dark horse .
Gintama's special type of humor are the mistakes the main characters make, but Sakamoto's humor is the flawlessness that it has, meaning - it's funny because it's just perfect! Gintama and Sakamoto will both give you the tremendous amount of laughs and giggles you want, will be there as you watch!ʕ•ٹ•ʔ
The main difference is that Gintama faces mainly around the three main characters while Sakamoto goes solo with a few people getting some spotlight.
Even better is that they are made by the same director!
It might seem a like a weird comparison but I think both show have things in common. For one, they both use, relatively, more realistic art style then other animes which makes it stands out. They both do an amazing job of making the viewer feel uncomfortable in a variety of moment throughout both shows. They are both comedies but they differ in that prison school is an ecchi show. While Sakamoto is episodic and the comedy draws on the fact that the main character is impenetrable, like Saitama form OPM.
Both have a male who is pretty much perfect in every way comedically, even to the point where he's the most popular in school among girls, except in Maid-Sama the lead male actually focuses on one girl.
Both are gag anime that rely heavily on the personalities of the characters. Not much happens in either, but they're both extremely funny and feature the same kind of humour, gag after gag. They're also both school anime, so classrooms and school situations are also prominent.
Both happen in a school, and have over-the-top humor about the characters. The episodes are relatively short. As a character Masaru-san is a lot more like an anti-hero, but always prevails - even when it seems very unlikely!
The setting of the story are very different, but offers similar sense of humour.
Both anime have their characters to use ridiculous techniques to achieve comedic purpose.
Both anime don't make sense, and that's the charm. It's like Manzai comedy between the author and viewers.
Both are comedy anime and are very enjoyable. Both are not to be taken very seriously with their ridiculous plots and characters.
Osomatsu-san is a little more crazier with its plots while Sakamoto desu ga? is more slice-of-life.
The first 30 or so Reborn episodes are very similar to Sakamoto, they feature the same comedy involving high school, delinquents, characters everyone thinks as cool, playing games (like snow fights) with ridiculous twists, they both have nice characters, and even the music in Sakamoto is very similar to Reborn. The difference is that Reborn later gets a serious plot and turns into a battle shonen.
Meganebu and Sakamoto both deal with eccentric main characters. Both wear glasses and does ridiculous funny thing. In Sakamoto he is teaching that person a lesson in life. While Meganebu glasses are LIFE. "No Megane No Life" Both have comedy and slice of life.
Overpowered MC who catch the attention of the school.. Both school have some delinquent that underestimated the MC at first, but later they show respect to each other like friends. The atmosphere and comedy are somewhat similar, and there is at least one girl who has a romantic feeling to the MC.
I'm pretty sure many of you have either watched this or have heard of this anime/manga. Both OHSHC and Sakamoto Desu Ga have school settings and lots of comedy. There is also a character in OHSHC that looks just like Sakamoto and shares his "cool-ness".
Cool headed protag being cool. Everyone is very impressed and/or paralysed with fear and awe. Hilarity ensues.
Sakamoto jokes are easier to understand for Western audiences whereas Hoozuki has a lot of cultural references, cult/current event reference, anime references, and puns that translate very poorly. A lot are either missed by translators or left unexplained maybe because they didn't want to fill the screen with TN text. Despite that Hoozuki is the richer of the two with a more interesting setting and side characters that have a little more personality.
Both are silly and fun.
The series resemble each other in the fact that they are actually the complete opposite of each other: While "Sakamoto desu ga" tells about a handsome guy who is smart, cool, stylish and insanely popular, (while all what he does for it is to act in the most natural way, and everyone who ever tries to humiliate him ends up attracting even more positive attention to him), "Watemote" tells about an absolutely uncool, quite dumb, freaky and unpopular girl, who, in contrast, does her best to improve her image - and become popular- with quite simple and silly attempts that, obviously, only make her seem even more ridiculous.
Both are comical slice-of-life shows that center on a single student's school life and his "social status" among his peers. They both lack a single plot line since each episode centers on a new topic and new occasions in the main character's life.
