It gives you the same feeling watching it, the soundtracks, the characters, the artwork.. they are so identical while having completely different story. But IMO Gabriel is way better than Himouto because Himouto doesn't have a plot, you will never feel as engaged as watching Gabriel, you watch it just for fun.
Both Gabriel DropOut and Himouto involve girls that have an outside, perfect(?) persona, but in reality they act very differently at home. Also, the drawing style is similar, but not the same (the same studio produced them).
These two anime follow the hilarious events that ensue.
Identical! But Gabriel Dropout have twice the troll IMO lmao. In term of artwork, it is identical as well, character design, environment all aspects reminds me of Umaru. And so to say, if you like the troll, comedy of Himouto Umaru chan...you will be very happy to watch Gabriel Dropout as well. Btw, reminds me that the main character is a same NEET Blondie girl.
If you like light comedy about a lazy person who wants to do nothing but have fun, play games, watch anime and whatever else a typical Japanese geek does and if you, just like me, didn't get enough of Umaru's shenanigans, waiting for the next season, worry not, Gabriel and her friends can make your day better in a blink of an eye.
Say hello to Umaru-chan's lesser little angel looalike, Gab-chan!!
Seriously, these two are similar in so many ways. Lazy, game addicted, natural genius, a shut in and they even look alike!
Gabriel dropout may not be as popular and interesting as Himouto but the actual story itself is quite enjoyable. You get to watch as the 4 characters live their daily lives, goofing around, pranking, and just trying to live out their lives as humans. The characters are likeable, the story is funny, and the music is lovable. If you like Himouto style comedy, gabriel dropout shouldn't be far behind in your preference. Give it a try! :) read more
- Group of characters who arrives from another world and tries to addapt to life here.
- Both have the same amount of Comedy/Slice of life and a good equilibrium in both.
- Similar random situations on their everyday life
- Both involves fantasy and real world character.
If you enjoyed GabDro, you probably enjoy cute girls, yuribait and pinches of fantasy here and there. Maid Dragon is similar in those ways but has a bit more story than GabDro.
They ARE both focused on slice of life, though. So if that's your thing... Have fun, I guess?
Both are slice of life animes featuring characters from other worlds with a very similar feel to it. The main cast is predominantly female in both series, the art style is similar as well. If you liked Dragon Maid, you'll like Gabriel DropOut and vice versa.
Episodic narrative following cute characters doing cute things, with a slight fantasy twist to dynamics. One features cynical angels and demons with limited understanding of human social structure, the other cynical dragons with limited understanding of human social structure.
Both good-looking slice-of-life shows that are above average and actually funny in addition to being cute. Kobayashi deals with some adult themes and there are actually emotional points in the show, while DropOut always stays carefree. Kobayashi is heartwarming while DropOut features socially-unacceptable behaviour that would only be funny in an anime (I mention this because sometimes I am not in the mood for the latter)
These two anime are both funny and hilarious. While Gabriel Dropout is about an angel who descended from the sky, Ika Musume however is about a squid girl ascended from the sea. In my opinion, I think that Ika Musume is a better anime than Gabriel Dropout.
The "reverse isekai" premise of both series is very similar, involving a girl from another world who is dropped into modern society and attempts to assert dominance, but things don't quite go according to plan, and hilarity ensues. Great for relative newcomers to anime, and those who like to have a good laugh.
Although these shows have different premises, they are both a parody of typical innocent CGDCT shows and tell about angels and demons who have come to our world. Moreover, both titles have a comically evil character as one of the main girls. At the same time, although Jashin-chan strongly focuses on violence and pop-cultural references, Gabriel is usually more casual.
Both anime comedies are about angels and demons on earth with reverse roles where demons are the good guys (Vigenette and Medusa) and angels are the bad guys (Raphi and Poporon). Jashin-chan's title is also very similar to Gabriel's opening song title (Gabriel Drop Kick).
It's a much, much lighthearted version of Jashin-chan Dropkick. Gabriels Dropout is also more focused on interacting with the environement while Jashin-chan Dropkick more focused is on character interactions.
Other then that both have the similar premise and even similar characters (I mean, Jashin-chan is just Satania, only the edge cannon is fired up).
Both series are kindred in the way of opposing cute girls in a both mythical and manichean fashion. And, just as accordingly, both regularly break the coherence of their universe, ridiculing the premises of their shows.
As Gabriel DropOut might be more deserving of recognition for the elaborate comedy it displays, Machikado Mazoku would win more if were to be considered the developing bond between the main protagonists. Even on this front, Gabriel DropOut is not losing so much.
Both series, in the end, are fairly similar, and the mood it will make you feel might seem, afterwards, out of this world! For both are condensed cutesy and pure comedy, and sprinkled in, a bit of bondings. read more
Both series take usual demeanours of a specific character role (e.g. angels) and reverses it.
Angels that acts like devils and devils that act like angels in Gabriel DropOut.
Devils that are incompetent and magic girls that are overly powerful.
Angels and devils forced into a slice of life situation fighting among each other with a hint of role reversal, although both sides end up just being friends that secretly hate each other. Both have a lot of comedy but Maou sama has a bit more story and character focus (doesn't always work but it's good) while Gabriel was made for laughs and a few of common trope characters everyone loves.
Angels and demons coming to earth, only to be influenced by Otaku culture in some way. Also, the roles get reversed where the devil/ demons become the good/ innocent ones, and the angels are the one perceived to be the bad guy/ slacker.
- angels and demons get along for some reason
- angels and demons try to blend in with society
- both main characters reveal an unexpected side of their character after going to the human world
- both main characters' best friend tries to bring them back to their original self
- restrictions on their magical powers
Another slice-of-life comedy by the same studio!
Centered around an all-female cast of four awesome personalities, this anime is over-the-top and consistently hilarious.
Guaranteed to fill the YuruYuri-shaped void in your soul for a while!
An Anime with Fallen Angel' as protagonists where we can find that they didn't act like truly Angels. The Principal character refuse keep living in the heaven and plans stay in the Earth doing some human "inmoral stuff" for som people.
-Both of anime are showing girls/lolis as main characters and doing cute things
-Both of characters in anime are mostly known as non-human, in Gabriel there are devils and angels, and in Demi-chan is usually half monsters
-Both of anime have setting in school life
-Both of anime have light story and plots, so it's easy to enjoy them especially for people who looking for relaxing anime
- Group of 4 girls and their everyday life (Gabriel - School/New Game - Work)
- Both have the same amount of comedy on every episode
- Similar artstyle and random events related to the anime location (School/Work)
Same daily basis.. With a lazy girl as an otaku..
one was very sociable and other one just wants to get some attention
They prefer not to get caught one of her secrets or doing ridiculous stunt everyday
Basically, both series has two main similar things, cute girls doing cute things. So if you liked this anime, I would recommend that you watch Gochuumon wa Usagi desu ka? which is similar because it is also light hearted.
Both are above average cute-girls-doing-cute-things in a school setting. Both are also actually funny and don't rely solely on cuteness for enjoyment. Love Lab is more wholesome and has some emotional moments, while DropOut plays up sadistic behaviour for laughs (you may or may not be in the mood for that)
Top class high school humor with everlastingly recurrent moments (which are always, paradoxically, the elements of surprise). Some surrealist elements. Similar moe characters (dumb one, kind one, shy one, cheeky one, etc.). Endless mines for reaction images and memes.
Both are really similar in reverse-roles. As in they portray characters that usually act one way.
Gabriel DropOut - Angels have devil personalities and devil has angel personalities.
Beelzebub - Hell is portrayed differently. It's not dark and gloomy as it is usually thought of in real life.
Same feel where the characeters are chuuni. However in Dropout the characters are actually angels and demons while in Chuunibyou they just act chuuni. Also both share the same comedic appeal with overly dramatic characters.
Supernatural everyday life with a group of girls, one being angels and devils while the other having those who are able to tell fortunes, summon spirits as well having witches.
They're both funny and relaxing to watch tho at times Urara has some serious time but hardly any really.
I'm sure if you enjoy one, you'll likely enjoy the other
I feel like they are similar somehow. They're both hilarious and have demons and angels. Angels in Azazel, in my opinion, don't act very angel-like just like my thoughts of Gabriel and the angels. They all seem like opposites and I think if you enjoyed Gabriel DropOut, you will also enjoy Azazel-san!
Both series circle around the daily lives of a group of girls whom have a cordial relationship with one another. The style of presentation of both are very similar to a yonkoma or 4-panel comic, though Gabriel DropOut does have more continuity.
Apart from this, both anime sport the same laid-back aesthetic while both groups of friends tackle everyday living.
