Bunny Girl is basically a less verbose version of Bakemonogatari, complete with the anthology setup of the main guy, who comes off as a sarcastic prick but is secretly super nice, helps the waifu of the week come to terms with her social anxieties and hangups that supernaturally manifest in very literal ways. The snappy dialogue and instant chemistry between the leads makes both shows a very fun watch, but Bunny Girl is much more accessible.
-Female lead with a sharp tongue.
-Male Lead seems like a normal guy but is secretly quite weird himself and also quite special.
-Both deal with anomalies in an otherwise normal world. Puberty Syndrome in Seibu, oddities in Monogatari.
-Number of other girls appear but the main relationship is straightforward and doesn't get derailed.
-Very fun to watch, good anime.
"Aobuta" shares many similarities with the Monogatari Series.
The story is about a high school boy meeting different girls with supernatural phenomenon and helping them solve their problems.
The main character seems unsocial and his classmates always misunderstand him. But actually he is a straightforward boy, and willing to help people around him.
The heroine is a pretty and cool girl with long black hair. She has a bit of sadism and sharp tougue, and often plays tricks on the main character.
Very similar in terms of plot and characters. The main guy helps other girls who suffer from a supernatural phenomenon and of course, some of them fall in love with him. The main couples are also very similar in both shows.
Both focus around paranormal/supernatural occurrences.
Female and Male MC's strongly resemble each other
Male MC finds the need to save others from these supernatural occurrences
Initial Arc establishes relationship between lead male and female
Character driven series
For once there is actually a show that is similar to Monogatari. Both shows involve the MC dealing with supernatural problems involving a wide range of girls. In both shows, while there's a main love interest that spans the series, there are small elements of harems for the MC's.
Both shows also have unique interactions between the characters and contain ample amounts of witty humor
If you didn't like Bakemonogatari for it being verbose, flashy, or unconventional but still enjoyed some of the themes used than Bunny Girl Senpai might be for you. Bakemonogatari will give you more memorable characters and is all-around better written but if you are looking for something more simple then Bunny Girl is the way.
A shameless yet selfless high school boy encounters several girls dealing with supernatural ailments and tries to help them in several distinct arcs. Sakuta and Koyomi are extremely similar as are Mai and Hitagi. Basically, the setup, structure, and characters have strong parallels. They’re both really good too.
Both try to explore problems that people face via more literal supernatural elements (spirits in Monogatari and adolecense syndrome in Seishun Buta Yarou). Where Bake more focuses on interal conflicts and problems relating to themselves, Seishun Buta Yarou focuses on an individual's interactions and place within a societal context (and then by proxy, how it affects them). Both however, are still good in both rights. There are also other small similarites that a fan of one can recognise in the other but they both still feel like fresh and interesting series in their own ways.
Both shows have a note of the supernatural things, that happening around main characters: the hero of this story is still a high school student, who meets a girl with supernatural phenomenon and helping her to solve a problem. Also, main heroine has a personality of "tsundere": sometimes, she can be angry to protagonist and even rude him, but on the other hand, she loves him and feel safety with MC.
Besides it, in both animes slip philosophical and scientific thoughts.
The story lines are very similar and equally interesting! The main character seems to be a pushover when in reality he has a righteous attitude towards helping others in need. They both walk the line between supernatural and reality; the character's emotions manipulate the world at large through themes of physics and spirituality. The themes are also very philosophical and every episode of Bunny Girl leaves me wondering about how I perceive my world, just like the Bakemonogatari series did. Mild fanservice too! I absolutely recommend both anime.
Bunny Girl is a rip off except
Generic art style
less of Shaft's spice
easier to consume
slightly more cliche
BUT STILL GOOD!
Self aware deadpan boy highschooler meets long hair self aware girl during a supernatural moment. Girl tells boy to not tell anyone he saw her.
He helps girls with their personal mental problems that manifest into something supernatural. He helps girls only for his harem.
There is a glasses clad girl who knows everything that can help the mc on any supernatural problem.
There is a girl who really has a crush on the mc.
There is a girl who is somehow the same age after a long time.
There is a girl who knows everything and has a split personality.
The ending song is sung by the girl who the arc is focused on. Monogatari does this with the opening song.
And many other minor similarities to Monogatari.
Both shows have one main male protagonist with many female characters surrounding him, but what makes both of these shows great is how they both are not harems. The females in both shows actually have characteristics and are not boring. Also not all of them are falling over romantic for the male protagonist.
Both shows character develop their main male protagonist as well as the females very well.
- Set in modern day with some supernatural elements
- Cast of mostly female characters around the highschool age
- Protagonist that seems like a normal guy, but has some secrets of his own and helps the girls deal with their supernatural problems
- Main girl with a sharp tongue and terrible mother
- Lots of banter
- Straightforward relationship with no misunderstandings or other cliches
Both animes have a similar concept of helping girls who are having problems with supernatural stuff. Also the main male leads are very similar to each other. Both animes also have a bit of mystery that makes you very curious and makes you want to follow it. So, If you like one of them, theres a high chance that you would love the other.
Seishun Buta Yarou wa Bunny Girl Senpai no Yume wo Minai is basically Bakemonogatari but worse. I find the characters, their interactions, the humour, the visuals, the drama, the plot (from what I remember from the manga), the art, sound and basically anything else to be better in Monogatari. If you enjoyed this, Bakemonogatari should blow your mind. On the other hand, Bunny Girl does have a more down to earth feel and is better for people who don't get Bake's humour.
Both Bunny Girl Senpai and Bakemonogatari share a similar concept where the mc helps out several girls who are experiencing a supernatural phenomenon. The dynamic between the mc and their main love interest in both anime are extremely similar, so if you like the banter then you should definitely check out Bakemonogatari, and all the other seasons in the series.
Both shows are an adaptation of romcom LN and strongly focusing on dialogues, talk about intellectual chemistry between an antisocial MC and some ideal yamato nadeshiko girl. Moreover, as the main girls of both shows, Yukinon and Mai are almost the same as twin sisters.
Both have RomCom and School genre.
Both MCs have some mild similarities like Hachiman and Sakuta being a loner and Mai and Yukino being a double-edged sword - A top class beauty with a nasty personality.
Both male MCs have a kawaii imouto
Oregairu is my most favorite RomCom Anime all time, while this series can catch up or possibly become my new favorite RomCom
Both series had the potential to rise to popularity when they both first aired.
Both have no aggravating factors that can ruin the story, ex. Harem, ecchi.
Both have good art style
You won't regret watching both series
- Similar snarky and cynical MCs, who are not social outgoing. Tho they are more accostable than they might appear at first glance.
- Also similar personality and design / appearance types for Mai and Yukino.
- Similar atmosphere, art style and humor in both series.
-MC in both are nearly identical, both sacrifice themselves for others, both are loners and do not care much about the opinion of others of them, both have great love for their sisters
-Joke and punchlines are very similar in form
-Main girl character in both anime have the same personality and vibe, both considered as the unreachable beauties in their respective schools
-One girl character has same VA, making it feel really similar to each other
-Both tackle problematic school situations
-Romantic comedy but can become serious in a flash
-Great OPs IMO lol
- Both shows are Drama/RomComs with where the MC tries to fix other characters problems.
- SNAFU is a bit more "realistic" while Bunny Girl Senpai has some supernatural elements.
- Both main male and female protagonists are very similar personality wise.
Both have cool, level headed MCs who seem to be introverted with a small (or none) friend group. They also feature calculating female protags with problems of their own allowing for chemistry between the male lead. Oh, and both enjoy their share of comedy.
1.Male main characters seem to not have any regard to what other people think of them.
2.Male main characters speak their mind freely,seemingly without second thoughts.This leads to good and bad,both types of situations.
- In both anime the MC deals with the social and psychological problems of the characters.
- The execution of superb natural elements is almost the same but there is a difference in the personality of characters. Characters are more cool and fun in Bunny Girl while more sentimental in Kokoro Connect.
- The communication between characters is a lot better in Bunny Girl while Kokoro Connect excels in pure comedy part.
- Rom-Com parts are in every episode of Bunny Girl while Kokoro Connects also take it towards drama which makes Bunny Girl light and purely fun.
- Bunny Girl anime takes the path of causing superb natural elements on the base of mental health while superb natural elements in Kokoro Connect cause the problems to be revealed and solved. read more
Romance series with kind of the same atmosphere, with supernatural elements with the same kind of mystery feeling. It also gave me some Haruhi Suzumiya vibes since the main protagonist of Seishun Buta Yarou wa Bunny Girl Senpai no Yume wo Minai? has a bunny girl and there's an episode where a mini endless eights occurs.
If you enjoy the plot of Bunny Girl Senpai, you may also enjoy the plot of Kokoro Connect. There are similarities especially in the "Adolescence Syndrome", and the plotline of Kokoro Connect. In addition, the genres are similar, as they both take place at school, and there's romance involved.
Teenagers, love story, supernatural but less focused on the supernatural part and more on the drama/relationships. Overall tone is pretty similar, melancholy accompanied by a down to earth sense of comedy and cute girls.
Both series explores the complexities of romantic relationships, friendships, and adolescence through supernatural phenomena. Whilst the supernatural phenomena are completely different and the plot differs, the concept is strikingly similar. Both main characters develop their relationships with those around them as a consequence of trying to solve the supernatural phenomena. A very strong recommendation for Kokoro Connect fans out there.
Both are high school anime focusing on a main character who has the desire to help those around him, especially his closest friends. For every arc is a new supernatural event that occurs due to a problem that one or more of the characters is experiencing, yet has been hiding from the others. With this supernatural event the character or characters involved cannot hide themselves for very long, otherwise they'd suffer very terrible consequences that could harm not only themselves but those around him/her.
Both deal with students experiencing supernatural events, affecting one or more at a time. Elements of romance and coming of age thrown in the mix as well as good written jokes/comedic relief that doesn't feel forced or out of place, especially in Bunny Girl Senpai
Both series contain:
-supernatural themes with philosophical notes
-annoying clingy imouto to MC
-male MC who is somewhat dull in contrast to the main female character who is popular in school
-high school mystery/drama
-mysteries that are supernatural in nature
Overall both series are really interesting/unique from most series and both worth checking out imo.
-Both series have a sarcastic main character
-Both of them have an odd main girl
-Both of this two series are mainly set in a school, but have supernatural elements
-we follow diferent arc-like stories
The boy falls in love from the first time seeing the girl, the characters have powers.
Sakurada Reset: People have powers coming from the city they come from.
Seishun Buta Yarou: People in the city forget the existence of Mai Sakurajima due of his power.
They have similar style with well thought-out dialogues and a lot of talking. However bunny girl has more engaging characters and more human-like interactions between characters, so I certainly recommend it.
While they might not be a whole lot alike, if you loved Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo and want more from the same people, then try Seishun Buta Yarou wa Bunny Girl Senpai no Yume wo Minai. The writer of the Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo LN also wrote the Seishun Buta Yarou LN series.
The LNs were written by the same author, who handles characterisation and internal conflict really well. The characters deal with emotional problems in a surprisingly realistic fashion, and neither show uses dramatic and flamboyant anime tropes much.
-MCs are doing "quests" in order to achieve something from various girls.
-These various girls are lovable.
-MCs have a similar characteristic: too straightforward to the point of no delicacy
-both animes have drama, comedy and high school elements
I'm wondering why hasn't anyone pointed this out.
guy helps out the girls with their problems caused by the supernatural and build their relationship, potentially to a one sided crush. also great banter between the elsie and mc like the show. similarly problems are realistic lessons that see the characters develop through their own individual arc.
honestly if you love this show, you'll love this one as well. they differ heavily in their executions but fall within the concept of picking up girls each arc.
Both series' characters experience mysterious supernatural phenomena in a high school setting. Both male protagonists are at first loners, but they grow to support their friends and peers as the shows unravel the explanation behind their puzzling conditions.
both are have a girl that no one can see her axcept the boy who the only one can see her, both have the same settings that takes place in school, and both are supernatural anime the main difference is this anime is more like a romance anime than another is more like an horror anime
This may seem like a stretch, but both series have a lazy, low-voiced, but very funny main character. This main character ends up driving the majority of the humor in both series. Plus, there are some perverted jokes in both series ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°).
Both MC's have similar situation, they are the only one that can see girl. In AnoHana girl is dead and in Bunny girl is forgotten by society. Both series are emotional rollercoasters and they guarantee that you will ship some couples and kept fingers crossed for "good things to happen".
These anime's both have a similar story.
The two characters that connect with one another is Tada Banri and Sakurajima Mai.
If you are looking for an anime that has a similar story I would go with Golden Time
Only MC and few other characters can see the girl
Both based on school settings
Main girl as senior (for Tasogare Otome x Amnesia it's kind of a grey area she is a ghost)
main characters grows closer fast
main girl characters behaviour have so many similarities
Main mean of communication to the outside world through MC
Similar themes revolving around acknowledgment dictating existence and memory loss threatening the relationship between the MC and their object of affection. Seishun is a little more mature and romance-centric, while Noragami has a strong fantasy element and incorporates the romance a little more subtly.
Both are amazing Animes worth binging.
Both have a female protagonist wearing a Playboy bunny outfit for reasons. While Moko wears it because of her job. Mai wears it because to find areas where she is visible. Difference is that Buta Yarou is a supernatural romance anime while Soap No Moko-Chan is a hentai comedy.
-Same main character at the beginning of the animated as Tomoya who is seen a little less like an outcast, but as a single person with only one or two friends.
-The main female character is very different from Nagissa in her attitude but she is in the same situation, a lonely girl, who is also the senpai of the main character.
The character who disappears from the sight of others, is reminiscent of the story of Fuko Ibuki in clannad.
It is an attractive series, it manages to conquer you in the first chapter with all the supernatural things that happen, it manages a lot of your curiosity and pretends to feed very well basic concepts such as the world that surrounds us, which is reality, and as it really is interpreted and everything from very simple quantum concepts, applied to electrons... we can see the world, but those that we do not see in it, it is not visible to our eyes... without a doubt, Chitanda would be increasing her curiously curious xD, about all the strange things that happen in Seishun Buta Yarou, to a point where we ourselves would question ourselves, how deep we want to get in the rabbit hole... of this bunny Schrödinger...  read more
These shows are very, very similar. They talk about strange phenomena that nobody can really explain (the spit in NKX, puberty syndrome in SEIBU). The main couples are similar although Sakuta and Mai are more calloused that Urabe and Akira, not so innocent. School plays a large part in both shows, as it sets the background and atmosphere while also serving to better explain the relationships the characters have.
These are both excellent mystery romances that are definitely worth your time.
-Both contain a mystery behind a sudden surge of supernatural abilities among teenagers
-Have a protagonist that has a mysterious power themselves
-Have a male protagonist with a little sister that they are trying to protect
-Have a female protagonist that has invisibility power/ ability to make themselves unseen
If you liked the Monogatari series, I bet you'd most likely love Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai too.
It is practically the same as Monogatari if you subtract the unique art style of Shaft and replace supernatural with Sci-Fi.
A very brief review of Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai:
The show revolves around Sakuta who helps other students in his high school with a very peculiar problem - Puberty Syndrome - a syndrome that defies physics as we know it. Enjoy the pseudo-thrilling experience with sweet romance and comedy where the writers have done an excellent job in incorporating Physics concepts like Shcrodinger's cat, etc. into the high school dramatic environment without overwhelming the viewers with abundant and scientific mumbo-jumbo. read more
