Very similar art style and both have elementary school girls doing cute things/causing adults trouble. The interactions between the 3 main girls of Mitsuboshi, resemble those of Ichigo Mashimaro. Overall, if you liked one, you will sure to like the other.
Both are CGDCT comedies with very fun and diabetes-esque atmosophere.
Both shows feature a cast of young girls doing and depict their shenanigans, often causing problems to the adults around them.
Some characters are also very similar:
Yui and Chika are both the straight man of their groups
Sacchan and Miu are the bratty and hyperactive ones causing the most problems.
Trio of grade schoolers wreaks havoc in their town. They also target one older guy which they try to bully in a way. While Mitsuboshi Colors is focused on cute aspect, Mitsudomoe is focused on a bit more ecchi aspect.
Trio of very young girls (grade school/kindergarden) and their adventures and mischiefs towards adults in near vicinity. The girls in those two trios have similar personalities - quiet and twisted one, hyperactive one and kind one. Cuteness overload.
you should watch both of these anime if you like trio cute girls having fun little adventure in daily lives. Both trio girls have same characteristic, one is the brain and twisted, one is the hyperactive troublemaker, and one is the shy and kindest one. The only difference is hanamaru youchien has kindergarden girls and romance aspect, while mitsuboshi colors has grade school girls without romance and more in exploring town.
Both elicit memories of silly moments in childhood. Barakamon actually focuses on the adult as the centerpiece and has a small overarching plot, whereas Mitsuboshi Colors strings together many small adventures the little girls have.
It's not about magic since just only one show here is mahou shoujo. But it's about adorable girls solving problems and unveiling mysteries in a friendly and charming town. A long-lasting feel-good experience.
I'm kind of cheating here, since this recommendation is pretty low effort. Well, for starters, both Mitsuboshi Colors and Slow Start are from the winter 2018 season. Both anime involve a group of cute girls just going around doing their fun little adventures. Slow Start takes place in high school, and the girls meet the main character on their first day of school, and than start hanging out together, performing their cute antics. Mitsuboshi Colors involves 3 young girls having their own club house and having fun playing their childish detective games. Both shows are in the fan genre, "cute girls doing cute things", and they're quite enjoyable to watch. Both anime will give you some simple fun entertainment to make you laugh a little, although Colors is better. Slow Start doesn't have as much charm. read more
