How can Nichijou not be on the recommendations for this.
It posses a similar tone with short "stories" around random topics related to the main cast.
Even the top notch quality on animation and originality that Poputepipikku has is similar to that of Nichijou. (Even tough I've noticed that Poputepipikku uses mostly CG on their action shots, or to add more detail to the action made. In Nichijou's case it is mostly traditional animation with use of CG for emphasis on backgrounds and keep a consistent scale of said background while blending it with 2D painted backgrounds in close shots).
Also on both shows the characters have defined characteristics that makes then easy to differentiate from each other.
*NOTE: The humor in Poputepipikku is really different than that of Nichijou by being more targeted at mature audiences, but that still does not take away the fact that both are hilarious on their own field.* read more
Both are similar in that they are comedic series with outrageous skits and characters. Nichijou feels more refined as it has some semblance of story/recurring characters where Poputepipikku is just 100% short hilarious gags.
Both series feature absurd humor. In a way, these series are similar to what one would see on adult swim where the humor is not afraid to be mean-spirited or sometimes be cringey yet still funny. If you're sick of typical anime humor then I recommend both series for a nice change of pace.
Both Mr. Osomatsu and Pop Team Epic are absurdist, gag-centric, slap-stick & referenced-ladened comedy anime based on manga. They are also very in-the-now, meaning their references are timely to today's meme-based pop culture. Finally, both series are not afraid to enter cringe territory with vulgar language, body humor and slap-stick violence.
Poputepipikku is a bit more disjointed than Space Dandy, but they're both totally off the wall and poke fun at numerous anime tropes. There's little to no continuity in either, and each is full of cartoon antics--exactly what animation was meant for!
Meta-humor and absurdity abound in both Gintama and Pop Team Epic. They both make references to other anime, call out their own anime production staff in the middle of the show, and rely heavily on sight-gags and slapstick for the comedy.
There is a lot to differentiate Pop Team Epic from Colorful, but at their core each show has the same comedic essence. Explicated better, both these shows are skit comedies that rely on drawing in viewers with their variety of lightning-fast comedic moments. Both shows feel like the kind of hectic Internet humour often found in YouTube videos.
Through both of this shows, you are going to ask yourself questiones you never thought of. You will question the decisions of every choice you made during your lifespan. Both have good drama with a genius artstyle and both are very philosophical.
Between Ai Mai Mi, Pop Team Epic, and Fushigi na Somera-chan, if you're looking for an anime to watch and you have a quality yet questionable humor and can laugh at the most simple and stupid thing, you need to watch these three animes.
Each of the humor presented in each anime I've listed here is enough to make you ascend to an entire new existence as you laugh your ass off and question why you're laughing. They're basically the vines that you see that present raw humor but somehow make a lot of sense and are absolutely hilarious; my example being the "Hi, welcome to Chilis!"
So don't let the ratings fool you, if you have the humor to enjoy any of the three animes I listed at the top of this comment, you WILL love the other two. I have no doubt in that. And if you haven't watched any of them, now's a good time to start as they both will make your life more enjoyable. read more
