Both deal with the problems that a worker might face in their day-to-day life, so if you enjoyed that part of Aggresive Retsuko, then you may find some of this in Skullfaced Bookseller Honda-san, and vice versa.. Be warned, though, that they differ in that Aggretsuko deals more with work-life balance, while Honda-san is more about informing people about the process of bookselling, so the overall feelings of the shows are different.

Both shows have similar art, and similar quick-format storytelling. The setting and story are both completely different, but the tone of the characters and how they're written feels very similar between the two shows. I feel like if you enjoy one, you'll most likely enjoy the other.

Both shows are essentially situational comedies that are largely episodic in nature. The episodes are extremely short (which means you can binge watch them in one go), and if you enjoy jokes where you don't have to think too much to laugh, then you're gonna enjoy both these shows.

- Both shows are comedic series centred around working at bookstores. - Both contain a heavy amount of manga and otaku cultural references. - Both find comedy in the everyday interactions of the staff and the situations of the bookstore and its customers.

in my opinion both have a similiar comedy taste even tho Gaikotsu Shotein takes place at a book shop while Asobi takes place at school both of them talks about daily life moments that ocurr in a funny and exaggerated way what makes impossible not to laugh while watching them if you want to have a good time while watching anime i recommend one of these

- both are about odd occurrences in daily life - similar humor and pacing - quirky and lighthearted  
report Recommended by surakio
Both are silly anime about the day to day lives of workers. Working takes place in a diner, and Gaikotsu Shotenin Honda-san takes place in a book store. If you enjoy slice of life with humor and quirky characters, you're sure to love both!

Both are anime about parts of daily life relating to otaku culture.

Did you enjoy watching a waifu working in a regular job? If the answer was "yes" then you will probably enjoy this anime as well. Honda-san and Lucy are some of the best waifus this industry can supply and will probably hook you to the show.
