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.
Otaku-like anime with the same elements as gaming and high school setting.
The supporting cast of both anime doesn't have a major role, but still supports the shows quite a lot with their own quirks and humor.
Umaru is an "angel" in her normal form and lazy in her chibi form, while Gabriel is an angel... that is just generally lazy and quite similar to Umaru.
They're fun and pretty light-hearted, if you like otaku comedy you'll most likely enjoy these shows.
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?
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.
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!
-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)
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.
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.
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
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.
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!
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
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.
