This is very similar because both animes have four main charaters and slowly start to gain more charaters toward the end. They both express chibi scenes to make childish comedy which i could help but laugh at. The only differnce is that K-on is based around learning music and Lucky star tries to referance anything they can while at school.
Lucky Star and K-ON focused more on the drama/slice of life and comedy.
So, if you found Lucky star worth watching, then so is K-ON.
There are also character that act for the "moe", the serious one, etc.
Both of these Animes share a good amount of comedy as well as being slice-of-life shows.
Not only that but all four of the main girls from each series have a similar personality. Like...
-Konata=Ritsu, both of them seem to have a hyperactive attitude and act not as normal as others. -Kagami=Mio, both share a good study habits and are really smart. Plus they can act really strict .
-Tsukasa=Yui, both of them don't really like to study that much and they really like to eat sweets.
-Miyuki=Tsumugi, they both come form wealthy families and they also have a sweet personality.
Both animes follow four average girls on their "journey" through high school. both sets of girls look rather young for high schoolers, but face similar struggles as those that real high schoolers face. Also, while K-ON! has more to do with music, both have great songs! These comedies are both so great and if u like one of them you'll definitely like the other!!! hope this helps!!!
In a daily life of a girl, there are countless joys hidden just waiting to be uncovered. Sometimes, the most dull and boring of places can actually be the most fun once you found a reason to cherish it. In the midst of all this, music serves as the glue in the joyful adventure.
'K-ON!' and 'Lucky Star' established themselves as some of the top contenders of simple, carefree 'FUN' without having the need to cross the boundary. In each of the series, friendships are formed with a group of girls that do not have a clear sincere dream they wished to pursue. The comedy and music value are exceptional, combining it with the well thought-out lines and cuteness of the characters, there is nothing short of a breathtaking experience. Every genre has haters and a show like this should be embraced for what it is without the need of being too fussy. Not only does 'K-ON!' and 'Lucky Star' give out an easy going vibe, they also cast a sense of warmth into the hearts of those who appreciate it. Overall, this is the typical case of what you see is what you get. read more
Have you ever wondered what it would be like if the charcters from lucky star all of a sudden created a rock band? well here you go. you can even see the characteristics of each of the characters being almost he same. The seiyu are different and not as well know but they are all rising starts in the anime business.
K-ON and Lucky Star are very similar in many ways.
Firstly: the characters are similar. Examples: Mugi and Miyuki are similar because both are rich; Konata and Ritsu are similar because both are crazy; Kagami and Mio are somewhat similar because they try to control the crazy ones; Yui and Tsukasa are similar because they both forget things, sometimes important things.
Secondly: In both anime, The story is revolved around 4 girls. In Lucky Star: Konata, Miyuki, Tsukasa, and Kagami. In K-ON: Mio, Mugi, Yui, and Ritsu. There are also teachers involved and other girls.
Thirdly: In both anime, the theme is comedy and school, however K-ON is music and Lucky Star is slice of life.
That concludes my recommendation. read more
The story centers around four high-school girls who go about their daily lives, with various themes at the center. K-ON! is very similar to Lucky Star, but replace the 2ch references and otaku culture with music.
Lucky Star and K-ON! Has Similar characters, not by looks but by attitudes as well. It doesn't have the same storylines. But if you watch Lucky Star or the latter, you will feel the same atmosphere in both animes. They are produced by Kyoto Animation as well, giving you the same amount of humor, Lucky Star brought us.
They have a simple plot and they are really random. They focus on high school girls and their teachers; even the lead characters are similar.
(Kagami - Mio
Konata - Ritsu
Tsukasa - Yui
Miyuki - Tsumugi)
K-ON! and Lucky Star are both easy-going, slice-of-life anime that have practically matching character personalities. K-ON has a hint of a story-line, but ends up with the pointless and random almost every episode, just like Lucky Star. If you loved one, there is no way you'll not love the other.
There are four main female characters (until Azu-nyan came on later in the series of K-On!) and very few male side characters for both anime. Some of them have similar traits too: Yuki-chan (Lucky Star) is prim and proper like Mugi-chan and Yui is somewhat an airhead like Tsukasa. The girls in both anime are energetic, happy, cute and random. Both anime are in the comedy genre.
both are EXTREMELY hilarious!!! just girls hanging out, talkin about stuff and doing things that makes you laugh!! the characters are very similar...
the teachers who hangs around with them have the same personality as well, the 4 main characters treats them as if they're the same age....
Sawako- Nanako (they're also teachers who doesn't have any boyfriend so they have nothing else to do xD)
K-on! is just like Lucky Star in so many ways. Even though the plots are different, the main characters have a lot of the same personalities and traits and it centers around their school life. It is also just as funny as Lucky Star =P.
Lucky Star and K-ON! are just the same. They are comedy series about a group of girls having fun and enjoying their lives. Both are slice of lives, and very enjoyable. Also, the characters are kinda the same. So, if you liked one of these two, just watch the other one, and you'll know what I mean.
They both don't have a strong and solid plot, which means there's a lot of scenes that are fillers but are actually very funny. I thought I'd never find another anime like Lucky Star but then I found K-ON :) They're both wonderful
School girls enjoying life, however I feel that K-On had a little bit more structure as opposed to Lucky☆Star. Nonetheless, I think if you enjoyed one you'll probably enjoy the other.
Characters are incredibly similar:
Yui, Tsukasa, they have cute, and silly tendencies.
Mio, Kagami, they are both the ones that more or less keep things in order, but both have lapses in that attitude from time to time.
Tsumugi, Miyuki, they are rich girls, kinda ditsy and super cute in the same ways.
Ritsu, Konata, they are both hyper-active and often come up with crazy ideas.
Both have strong and funny female characters who you get attached to as the series progresses. When both animes end, you feel as if you've graduated with all of them. Boh animes keep you laughing until the credits, and many of the characters are extremely similar.
Both have cute group of friends who live a daily normal life at school. Genre is slice of life for both and there isn't a concrete story but just their talks of a daily japanese school student who wear cute uniforms and like to discuss about cakes and sweets! Both are really kawaii!
Both have a quirky sense of humor and don't have much of a plot or continuous conflict that builds through out the story. Both share the Slice of Life genre and usually take place in a school environment.
Both Animes present a more or less carefree High-School life, while focusing on the comedic aspects. Drama, Tragedy and Sadness are not present. Furthermore, the protagonists are quite similiar: Both have a textbook airhead, a Tsundere and a rich, well-mannered girl, who sometimes fails to keep in touch with reality.
Same studio and a very similar slice of life feel to both shows. The big difference is that Lucky Star's comedy is very much geared towards otaku and geek culture whilst K-ON! uses more general humour that most people can understand. In that respect it appeals to a less niche audience whilst still complying to the great SOL structure Kyoto appear to have perfected,
- Both follow the slice of life antics of of girls and both have similar animation.
- Both anime focus on the everyday life of a group of Happy-go-Lucky High School girls going through an average high school life.
- Both are centered around the friendship of 4 characters.
- Both focus more on the quirky relationships than any overriding plot.
- They are both entertaining and have their own unique comedic values.
- They go through life everyday doing many things such as going to see a doctor, practicing for an upcoming concert, or just trying to do your homework and pass the test.
- They are both characters who can be either extremely moe or very angry in exceedingly similar ways.
- Their actions will make you fall out your chair laughing and some of the plot just grabs your attention.
- They are both made by Kyoto Animation.
- Both end in a climatic performance in the final episode and both take a completely irrelevant but amusing route to get there.
K-On! has a more continues story line whereas Lucky Star is just a series of short jokes. This means you will see less jokes in K-On!, but the type of humor is the same. Thus I think that if you liked one, you will most likely like the other one too. read more
When it comes to moe shows, they're all so cut-and-paste you only really need to see one to see them all, amirite? Nah, dawg. K-On! is a downright masterpiece, incorporating the four high school girls doing cute stuff formula into an actual coming-of-age story with super subtle character development and lovably relatable themes of friendship and finding something to be passionate for, as one does during teenage years. It has everything Lucky Star had and more, with top-notch animation and the same painted backgrounds KyoAni is known for. If Moe shows really are all the same, let Lucky Star be your gateway, then watch K-On! and be done with the genre. It's the best one. There's no need for more.  read more
These shows have a similar appeal, in the sense that they are both about a group of girls striving to become something big in a musical setting.
I found myself getting sucked into both of these shows because I wanted to see the characters develop their musical prowess from almost nothing, into something amazing, such as what is showcased in full glory in both shows' OP and ED sequences.
Both series also have an extensive discography outside the anime, allowing for even greater immersion into their respective universes.
Both These animes are about high school girls having fun with friends and music, though while in K-On! its more about friends being laid back and playing instruments, Love! Live! is about friends who decide to become school idols to attract students to their school so it doesn't get shut down and making friends along the way. Both cute and Moe.
Both are longer moe anime than the rest, and feature girls who sing and perform! Also, both have tons of excellent music, in addition to just the opening and ending themes! The characters are very lovable and you will definitely miss them after finishing each!
Mio and Umi both have stage fright but Mio get's frightened by everything
Both Mio and Umi have more mature singing voices while Yui and Honoka (Main characters) have cuter voices.
Something's getting disbanded (School in Love Live and Light Music Club in K-On)
Cute girls doing cute things (more obvious in K-On)
All girls school.
Both series have moe high school characters who want to accomplish something great and have fun while doing so. In K-On!, girls want to form a band and save their club from closing. It's very similar to Love Live! where girls want to save their whole school from closing by forming a Idol group.
Both anime have a lot of moe :D and this heartwarming feeling you get while watching both of them. There is also a lot of singing and dancing :). If you liked one of the anime mentioned above, and you were smiling while watching it, I bet you will love the other one :) read more
Enjoy music, with some funny cute moments? The story takes place on a school which the main characters goal is preventing things to not shut down. In order to do this, they recruit members, practice, and give it all out at the final performance to attract audiences.
The difference is that K-On is a band and don't want their club to shut down, while Love Live is Idol singing preventing there school from closing.
They're actually remarkably similar, both animes centered around music, school, and friendship among girls.
The difference is K-On! is about a school music club and Love Live! is about girls trying to become school idols to gain popularity and keep their school from closing. But, they're both up-beat, fun animes centering around school, friendship, and music, with nice soundtracks and cute characters.
Both are about a group of school girls forming a music group and both of the series have similar objectives, prior to creating the music group. In K-On, this is to save a band from disbanding, while in Love Live, this is to attract new students in order to stop the school from closing down. Both of the series' setting are about school, the bond between the girls in the group and while having comedy and moe at the same time. Not to forget, K-On and Love Live both have great music and discography, which makes both of the series very memorable.
Are you looking for cute and pretty girls on stage? Singing and as well dancing? Or do you love music animes? Might as well try Love Live! School Project.
Both strive to aim their own reasoning. They sing their hearts content and some of the main characters have the love for eating.
K-On is band and Love Live! School Project is an apparent Idol show. Obviously hehe.
In k-on and love live, both have admirable characters with really good friendships with each other. Both animes are about singing and performing. The animes are also cute, making you want to watch more. Both are really good animes if you're looking for a school, music, or slice of life anime.
Both of these animes are based around a music school club, they are both comedies (sort of) and include Slice of Life features...also some of the characters are pretty similar Yui is quite similar to Honoka (being an slight airhead). Anyway moving on, both series are pretty close the only main difference is the type of club they are in (K-on is the light music club and Love live is a bit like a idol club.)
Anime about cute high school girls making music. They have a similar character cast and plenty of enjoyable slice of life and comedy.
Both also have a focus on friendship, and have a 'stronger' second season.
When it comes to competition. I gotta say that K-On! only focuses on in-premise performance whereas Love Live Idol is a group of idols who really needs to compete in order to save their school from shutting down but what makes it similar is that whenever they practice they do boot camps in order to boost up their performance, but sometimes because of negligence they were able to just enjoy themselves by doing non-essential things BUT IN THE END they are able to perform on a top-notch level.
Pretty much the same. Although the stories are different you have the same idol anime vibe in both animes. Cute characters, drama and amazing songs: you'll get this in these two! If you like idol or moe animes you sure gonna like not only Love Live, but K-On as well
It's hard NOT to see similarities between Love Live! and K-ON!. They are both about girls who are dedicated to playing music, and the characters are very similar. I can definitely see Umi as Mio, and Honoka as a mix of Yui and Ritsu.
Needless to say, K-On! and Love Love! School Idol Project are music-centric anime. While K-On’s story revolves around four high school girls joining a light music club in order to keep it from disbanding, Love Live! School Idol Project’s story is about the main character, Honoka, and her group of friends creating a school idol group called "μ's" (muse) in order to attract new students and prevent the school from shutting down. Although the two have a few different plot specifics, they both work to prevent something they love from closing. In addition, the overall theme of friendship and passion and drive are present. With enough hard work and dedication, these anime show that you can achieve anything you put your mind to. read more
Love Live and K-On are light hearted school anime with musical and comedy elements. Characters also have similar characteristics in both series. They are different though, with Love Live having a stronger story and containing more musical elements and K-On having less of a story and less musical numbers.
These two series both feature a group of high school girls who form a music group to prevent their club or school from closing. Both anime are quite lighthearted and have comedy and drama in them. If you enjoy watching slice of life anime or are into music, you might like both shows.
Two very similar music shows.
Both K-On! and Love Live! School Idol Project:
- Are famous and influent Moe anime.
- Have a group of girls trying to grow up with music.
- Have characters with similar personalities.
- Are relaxing to watch.
Strikingly similar, couple of girls want to form an aesthetics club in a school, be it an idol group or a band. However, Love Live! focuses more on the developments and training of each of the girls skills in singing, and in K-On!, the friendships between the girls are more developed and explored compared to Love Live!'s characters. But hey, to each his own. :)
Both involve slice of life,comedy,music and moe girls.
While Love Live has more characters singing and dancing scenes,K-on is more descriptive and has more comedy moments.
If you want to look for better and more descriptive Highschool life story,give K-on a try :3
A bunch of cute high school girls, set on fire by an charismatic airhead, provides a endearing, comedic and a funny time. If you like watching chastingshows (e.g. BGT) you will really enjoy watching these characters and the development of their relationships. I would recommend it to anyone who just wants to have some a fun time and some heartwarming moments along the way.
And K-On! hits the same tone. A fluffy cotton candy, with good music and an cast that is really the driving force. That is what both anime have in common, in addition to some other similarities.
Did you like K-On? Nice! Do you need to feel what you liked about K-on? Nice! Then Love Live is your anime! The characters convey the same feeling of unity, desire of surpassed themself and the same tenderness in the story!
Both have the same genres of Music, School and Slice of life.
The characters for both anime are cute and lovable.
Both anime are also about a girl wanting to make a school club associated with music (idol/light music), but doesn't have enough members. Eventually, there are more members than the minimum.
Some cute girls become friends when they decide to form a band together.
At the beginning of the two stories, some of the girls are already friends and are looking for other people to recruit to support the different roles of their dream band.
Each girl has a different appearance and personality, and each has special skills.
Also, the respectives main characters both have a very similar personality.
In conclusion, they are both cute animes dealing with the importance of friendship and music under a school background.
Both have wonderful and developed characters in music clubs who started from scratch. Their first seasons also set the stage for their respective (and superior) second seasons. What makes them even more alike is the similarity between Honoka & Yui (air-headed and happy optimist leader), Umi & Mio (shy, but talented main lyricist), Kotori & Mugi (kind and gentle) and Nico & Azusa (arguably the most important character and they both have twin tails).
While the issues of K-On are not as problematic as Love Live, they're both cute, funny and musical anime that'll get you sucked in.
Both featured cute high school girls and awesome music that surely rock your world.
Both series bring you slice of life and lots of laughter that boost up your mood especially when you're stressed out.
Both centre around a painfully cute group of girls and their often silly, always cute activities in their school club and outside of it. Yuru Yuri demonstrates an awareness of the girls love subtexts that tend to pervade all-girl slice of life school series, but it's fairly tame (at least for something with 'yuri' right in the title!) so the differences are fewer and subtler than you might expect.
Much like K-On, Yuru Yuri focuses on a group of girls and their club. Just like this anime, it is filled with cute and funny moments, along with a group of endearing characters. Don’t get scared by the title, most of the ’yuri’ only serves as a joke.
Both series feature a group of girls doing fun things at a school life setting with many humorous moments from the cast.
Both series has a general feeling of lighthearted comedy and some drama.
Both series consists of a club with the girls and are generally a fun watch for some great laughter.
School life,club activities,no romance (cause both of it taking place in an all girl school),a lot of funny chit chat,4 girl as a main character (well,actually it's 5 in k-on with azusa but it start with 4)
In both clubs they nearly actually do something, just wasting time on random topics and snacking all the time.
Each club consists of 4 female members (in K-On! it's 5 later on).
That randomness is what make both animes funny and enjoy able.
Sorry, I don't speak english.
Acho que quem gostou de K-on vai gostar muito de Yuru Yuri, pois os dois falam sobre um grupo de garotas, é um "slice-of-life" e tem bastante comédia. Simplismente amo os dois, se você gosta de K-on provavelmente gostará de Yuru Yuri!
K-On and Yuru Yuri are very similar, both go to all girls school and enjoy club meetings, having fun and still gives you that warm feeling inside. Very good slice of life anime, cool to relax and enjoy.
-Both follow a group of schoolgirls and their experiences.
-Both are light-hearted and often have many cute moments.
-One is simply about girls having fun while the other is based on a light music club, though this does not detract from the moe and humor at all.
Theyre both cute as hell shows, the only reason you might not like both of these shows is if you dont like the light/silly yuri references. Yuru Yuri means 'light yuri' theres nothing too extreme and it is far from the focus of the show.
Similar art style and similar humour. The character types are similar also, Yui Funami like Mio Akiyama, Kyoko Toshinou like Ritsu Tainaka, Chitose Ikeada like Tsumugi Kotobuki etc. K-on! has less yuri content
Genre Similarities: Comedy, School and Slice of life. Both have group of friends messing around in a club. Yuru Yuri is like k-on but without the music part to it. Two of the funniest anime I've seen and the characters are pretty similar.
Toshino Kyoko = Ritsu Tainaka
Funami Yui = Mio Akiyama
Akaza Akari = Yui Hirasawa
These two slice of life series are both lighthearted comedies about a group of girls forming a club and living their school lives. If you enjoy watching cute girls do cute things you'll probably like both the series.
They are both made by kyoani. The characters are similiar and the atmosphere is the same. Both really cute and if you liked the light tones of the show you're surely gonna enjoy k-on, which is 100% warm feelings and friendship
Both are KyoAni creations, share the same cute character design, heart-warming atmosphere, absence of real plot - there are cute girls living ordinary cute lifes with friends and family (and with bizarre parrot in TM)
These achieved exactly what they set out to do: it was cuteness for the sake of cuteness, and it had just enough story to make it worth watching. Tamako Market is by the team and studio that brought us K-On!, and they manage to hit this same target. It's about a girl who lives in a shopping district who is visited by a talking bird, and though the music setting from K-On! is absent, much of what made K-On! so endearing remains.
First of all, the artwork in both of these series are quite similar especially in terms of character designs.
Both series also has a lot of comedy presented in a sort of episodic format involving the main characters. The main characters in fact are mostly cute girls doing cute things.
Both series are also produced by the same studio, Kyoto Animation.
Both series also adopts a sense in the slice of life theme that focuses on the daily events of the characters in a fun way.
•both are produced by the same company, character designs etc
•both are just INCREDIBLY LOVEABLE!!!!! imo.
•both are concentrated to the slice of life to the fine detail, which is so relatable and loveable.
•both animes contain the exact sense of humor/personality's to fall in love with/atmospheric scenes
•both do differ in how the plot progresses throughout the show, where Tamako is kinda just senseless and pointless, you overlook that with all the MOE from all the kawaiii K-On! brought with it.
•they are similar with the same animation/music/loveable characters/kawaiii, but they do differ in how engaging the plot is, some viewers from watching K-ON! would be dissappointed since it didnt live up to it, but others would overlook that and couldnt care less, since its just full of cuteness.
No it's not even that it's similar okay Tamako Market is literally K-On. It's. K-On.
Seriously the designs are completely and utterly K-On. The tan chick is Azu-nyan, blonde one is Ritsu but with extra bitchy and more lesbian, Tamako is Yui, Shiori is that glasses chick from this show, Kanna is actually the only character here. Everyone else is irrelevant because this is K-ON.
Did I mention it's without all the things that made K-On actually enjoyable hahahaha WONDERFUL
From the studio behind the drama series "Clannad" comes a comedy following the daily lives of the high school girls. The series is known for it's cute moments, funny dialogue, calm atmosphere, and some moe characteristics. Not much of story since it is a slice of life format, but if you are looking for a good comedy show with some moe moments, then these will definitely fit your time.
Tamako Market takes place on a market, where the main female character helps her family selling food products. K-on is a musical comedy where the main characters tried their best to prevent their club from shutting down. read more
These anime talk about high school life for girls and friendship. They both contains comedy. You could also see the similarities in the characters, such as Tamako and Yui. They both treasure their family and friends. Their personality is almost the same too. The only difference about them is that in K-On its about music and in Tamako Market its about mochi.
- characters are similar. They have same attitude, movements & face
- both school & slice of life genre'd animes
- story is very similar
- both anime always do weird stuff
- makes you want to watch more
To start off Tamako Market and K-On are from the same animation studio (Kyoto Animations)
Both anime are light and fluffy.
Tamako and Yui are very similar in their unwavering smile and that almost nothing can dampen their spirit.
Both anime are slice of life and revolve around a close group of friends where eventually more characters are added.
I truly loved both anime and i hope you will as well.
Okay so both are slice of life anime with the same art style, the whole cute and fluffy look to them. Even though the main point of both (the purpose lets say) are completely different, I still believe that these two anime have quite a few things similar to each other. So now, if you have watched Tamako Market then check out K-on if you want a really light series that you want to enjoy (and vise versa)
Instead of an "oblivious to school" Hirasawa Yui, you get an "oblivious to her love life" Kitashirakawa Tamako. Instead of music and after school tea time, you get a market place, a weird talking bird, and mochi. Lots and lots of mochi.
k-on is a story about four (and in the second season five) girls becoming a family of sorts, the fifth girl coming in and being readily accepted
tamako market is a story about an entire community becoming a family, newcomers readily welcomed
both have similar art styles (kyoani) and have the same general feel
These two slice of life anime are both lighthearted comedies made by Kyoto Animation. They both follow the daily lives of a group of girls who are part of the same club in their high schools. If you enjoy watching anime where cute girls do cute things, you'll probably like both the series.
Both are very fun little anime, that revolve around a community. In K-On! it's a club, in Tamako Market it's a shopping district. Both touch on subjects like friendship, and attachment towards their communities.
From the same studio, Tamako Market has a lot of the same charm that K-on! has, but with a different feel. Tamako Market takes place in a small town rather than in a busy school, for the most part, and has a much more (for lack of a better word) relatable, almost, feel to it; It's more about a girl and her friends going about their day-to-day life rather than a club of students going to school every day. I wouldn't say I prefer either show over the other, but you should definitely check out this one if you haven't yet (or vice versa!).
In a normal daily life, friendships are formed whether it is through similar hobbies or the string of fate. The most influential thing however are the memories that are established through this beautiful journey.
'Hibike! Euphonium' and 'K-ON!' showcases its environment in a slice of life and music blooming manner. The character designs and visual effects are top notch as expected leaving most of the characters looking beyond flawless. Character developments are a necessity in the series and it binds very well with the overall principle. Following the musical adventure, ambitious goals are set in order for the musical group to reach the pinnacle of their dreams. However, putting awards and recognitions aside, the most meaningful part of the ride is to bring different people together and to always have fun when doing it. read more
Both are made by the same studio (Kyoto Animation) and focus on musical themes, plus have similar-looking characters (Kotobuki and Sapphire). While Hibike is more history-focused, K-On slighly focuses on comedy elements.
Everyday lives anime series with moe blobs which is much of the time very relaxing but can change tone at times. In either of this series a girl with/without previous experience decides to join a music club. These clubs try to aim high with their music but K-on!! aim lower than Hibike and K-on is more of a relaxing school life series.
If you like cute girls doing cute things, these are the anime for you. Both made by KyoAni and have a group of (mainly) girls playing instruments, striving for success. Main difference is the amount of people in their bands, but regardless the same premise remains in the story.
High School girls in somewhat dysfunctional after-school music clubs.
- Brown-haired protagonist? Check.
- Beautiful and musically talented girl with straight black hair? Check.
- Boisterous boke - check.
- Blonde girl with short, round eyebrows - check.
- Quirky, glasses-lady authority figure - check.
- Gorgeous KyoAni visuals - check.
- Anime about music and how it can bring different people together - checkmate.
It have the same air, the same spirit.
Also the same studio make it.
It doesn't have the same focus in a band or how the band members grow with the music, but have the frindship and relations into a music club.
I think that if you are one of those fans who want a third season of K-ON you have to see this anime, so you can control your mind...
Just like K-on!, but it takes itself seriously.
-Both have music
-Both are about high school girls that join a club/band
-Hibike! is about brass instruments (pretty cool actually) and K-on! rock/pop music
-In both makes you cheer for them
-Both are made by the same studio (Kyoto Animation)
If you like one you will definitely like the other
This recommendation is probably made quite a lot, so much, in fact, that you might be surprised to hear that the two are actually pretty different.
They are made by the same studio and both have to do with High Schoolers in bands—of two different sorts,—and aside from a similar aesthetic, this is about it. These reasons, however, are enough to make them go quite well together.
Hibike! Euphonium focuses more on the music side of things, I find; you see a lot more into the technicals of music than you would in K-ON! (though it's never boring). The characters in Hibike! Euphonium are great and I love the interactions that happen between them, but they are not quite as deep the five (or four, depending on the season) of K-ON!(!).
K-ON!, however, circles almost entirely around the interactions between its main characters. As you watch it, you form your own relationship with this group, whereas with Hibike! Euphonium you are more like a wallflower, as is the case with most shows, I find.
Regardless, both of these anime are great and I think that if you enjoy one, you'll enjoy the other.
Cheers! read more
By the same studio, with the same high-quality animation, Hibike! Euphonium features classic upbeat music to that of K-on! and still having a fantastic storyline between friends. Filled with character development and cute antics of the band.
The series both have a group of girls who are a part of a music club in their high schools. Both shows follow the girls as they live their school lives and practice to perform at a concert. You'll probably like both the series if you enjoy watching slice of life and music themed anime.
Coming from KyoAni, both shows have beautiful animation.
People who liked K-On will definitely like Hibike! Euphonium.
But, even if you didn't like K-On, you might like Hibike!. The latter has about 2/3 of K-On's cuteness, with a strong story, great execution and amazing soundtracks.
Thus, what K-On lacked, Hibike! provided.
Either way, both shows have been top-tier for me !
K-on sure is one of my favorite anime. For those who like a good comedy with cool songs, this is the best, as I see it. Regarding Hibike, the same is also a musical anime, has comedy and similar story with girls who enter a music club.
Let's start with what they have in common. The two shows share a similar premise in that it's about five girls in an organized group who play music. The art style is remarkably similar, and the characters tend to have cute moe characteristics both in their aesthetic design and personality. Both shows spend much of their time using music as a central catalyst to develop the characters' personalities and interpersonal relationships, and this serves to demonstrate how powerful an impact music can have on peoples' lives.
But that's where most of the similarities end, as while both shows have a similar basic premise, they end up taking that premise in two completely different directions.
K-On! is a cheerful and lighthearted slice-of-life story about a girl who joins a club of girls aspiring to become talented rock musicians, and what music can do to touch the lives of others and truly bring people together into an inseparable family. Sora no Woto is also an occasionally lighthearted (but overall much more serious) military drama in a war-torn setting about a girl who joins an army regiment as a war bugler in hopes that she can learn the trumpet, and how the power of music can echo throughout time and transcend inexorable cultural divisions to heal a broken world devastated by endless war.
While both shows have slice-of-life scenes that go beyond the musical setting, K-On! spends much more of that time developing connections between the characters through liberal use of comedy, whereas Sora no Woto tends to delve into the intricate and sometimes dark past of many of the characters and the history of the war-ravaged world. Due to this, K-On! maintains its cheerful, lighthearted atmosphere throughout the course of the entire series as appropriate, whereas Sora no Woto can often switch--sometimes even without warning--between cheerfulness and powerful drama.
Both go highly recommended. Fans of one should definitely try the other, and non-fans can decide which ones to watch depending on whether they enjoy a relaxing high school slice-of-life (K-On!), a deep military drama (Sora no Woto), or both. read more
Stylistically, there is a great deal of similarity between the character designs and personalities somewhat. Even from early on in the series', you can tell that the two just match up. If the style of one appeals, chances are the other will be worth a look as well. The stories may be somewhat dissimilar, but both involve a group of girls, in one case a music club, and in the other an army regiment, and their music.
K-On and Sora No Woto shares some major similarities in its content. K-On is an anime about group of girls who's playing guitar or w/e. Now, in Sora No Woto, they grabs trumpet in military setting. Art style and Character design is surprisingly similar, which makes us feel like 'isn't it a rip-off?'. Sora No Woto has possibility of becoming 'moe based' anime, like K-On did.
It really reminded me of K-On! Character wise and the animation of the two really looks similar. The only difference is the military atmosphere. If you're a K-On! fan, I think this is a whole new twist to your imaginations.
Sora no Woto is K-ON....If it was based on a music playing military platoon.
Seriously though, its a 5 member platoon. They all act and look almost exactly like one of the K-ON characters. (except Ritsu, and mio looks different)
Some characters look the same and act the same
-Rio looks like Mio and they act the same
-Katana is similair to Yui
There are others that are similair except this show is a little more serious about some things.
The artstyle is remarkably similar, as they are not made by the same studio.
Both series focus on a group of 5 girls and their day to day life. Basically its cute girls doing cute stuff. Also they center around music even though it doesn't take that much part in every episode.
The setting is very different, K-On! being a high school setting and, Sora no Woto have a Sci-Fi/Military setting.
K-On and So Ra No Wo To are both similar due to its light-hearted slice of life and music genre, and a colourful set of cute-looking female characters who you can't help but to hug, tightly. Both anime have characters with similar personalities as well as looks. Take for instance Mio Akiyama (K-On) and Rio Kazumiya (So Ra No Wo To); they are both kind and the most mature in their group. The animation styles of both anime are easy on the eyes along with its catchy opening and ending themes that won’t leave your head. Unlike K-On’s cute girls doing cute things, So Ra No Wo To has cute female soldiers doing cute things due to its military setting, unlike K-On’s high-school setting. Both of them are a must-watch especially those who enjoy and love light and fluffy slice of life anime in particular. read more
Both are centered around cute moe moe girls doing day to day things but both also incorporate a musical aspect to it; K-On being a school band and Sound of the Sky being our main charcater, Kanata, joining the army to learn how to play the trumpet.
Both are very cute shows but Sound of the Sky has a subtle plot line that is sure to make you catch at least some feels.
If you're looking for a decent moe moe show and have already watched K-On, Sound of the Sky is surely to fill that gap. Although be warned, this is a military anime. That's all the spoils I plan on saying.  read more
A Channel and K-ON! are both slice of life comedy anime about four girls. The characters of A Channel also might remind one of the K-ON! girls. Both series also have a lot of music in them - in K-ON! it is from the girls in their music club, and in A Channel it is in the insert songs each episode.
Becoming Japanese national standard for bishoujo anime, both shows are, in short, the flagship kind of anime for male consumers.
They are cute girls anime based on manga series from Manga Time Kirara (Carat) and they share the same formula.
Kirara style in short is to have group of girls doing cute things and show affection for each other from time to time in a not so lesbomatic way.It was proven popular in the last few years judged by the success of K-On! And Hidamari Sketch.
So much for news reporting, while I’m still at it lets take a look at the actual similarity.
Well, you got four girls doing cute stuff, they do it in a suggestively but not openly lesbian manner, they both share school life setting, they are both slice of life comedy, they both are similar. Love K-On!, watch A-Channel, obviously. read more
The same 'school girls + slice of life' formula, of course! Both are pretty heavy on emphasizing the close bonds between the girls so they beg comparison a bit more than other series in the genre. And while K-ON! has the light music club as a central focus, A-Channel's inclusion of an insert song in each episode gives it a bit of a musical theme as well.
Both anime have 'cute girls doing cute things' with merely implied yuri scenes. Both are slice of life anime with the same type of comedy, mostly random humor. The characters are extremely similar with all-female cast. Both follow the regular days of students, its setting being in school.
A-Channel is basically a less interesting version of K-ON without the music and with less interesting characters. Not to mention the annoying insert songs...If you liked A-Channel, you'll love K-ON! If you liked K-ON, you might still enjoy A-Channel for the similar themes.
A-Channel is the show you should be watching in the current "off-season" for K-On, pure and simple. If you enjoyed the heavy focus on character interaction and the simple charm of four high school girls just being themselves, then I can't offer you a better show that is current enough than A-Channel. And let's not beat around the bush: this sort of stuff is cute. There isn't a more tasteful way to put it; you just get this "feel-good" sensation upon watching shows like this and I know if you were a K-On fan you indulged in that. A-Channel has some stronger girl-to-girl romantic overtones but it should be nothing out of the ordinary for a viewer of K-On. There isn't much to say on the matter so if you were looking for a more complex explanation, then I can't give it to you but I'm sure that if you understand what K-On was marketing to, I won't need to elaborate. read more
A-channel is so very similar to K-ON, it has the same entertainment.
Both shows follow four moe girls that do moe things. Its like a western sitcom with japenese moe to spice it up a little.
The characters are so similar. Literally, as i watch the first episode of A-channel i was thinking "That one is Yui, that one is Azusa, and that one is Mio."
They are so similar.
If you like one you will like the other, end of story.
I liked both.
If you LOVE/LIKE moe characters, an intriguing slice of life, light hearted comedy and just plain cuteness, you'll love both of these animes! Both are about the lives of a group of girls, just having fun and enjoying life!
Both Moe-Blob shows with no real substance. Main characters are both air-heads, and the other characters are similar (if not seemingly the same) in terms of personality to each other. The art is different, and K-ON! Has better music and animation. The character Designs are very different, but they both suffice.
A Channel and K-ON! are both slice of life comedy anime about four girls. They have a high school setting, have a similar stereotypical cast and lack a serious plot. Both series have a lot of music in them, and the humor and feel of both shows are of the exact same kind. K-ON! has the band as an anchor-point for music and A Channel has a short song in every episode. If you enjoyed watching one of them then you should definitely check out the other.
Very similar character interaction, personalities, and way of finding a new thing to do together as newfound friends.
As a big fan of K-ON!, I can vouch that Sora yori has a very similar feeling and vibe. If you liked one, you'll surely like the other. Both give strong character chemistry, delivering them in similar ways.
Very similar in one of the central themes: how friendships makes us better persons. Character interactions and humor are very similar as well. Yorimoi is more dramatic and a little faster paced in its character development, since K-On is ~40 episodes long and the girls have less dramatic issues to resolve there, though when the feels hit in K-On they hit almost as hard as in Yorimoi.
All in all, Yorimoi is a more adventurous and dramatic version of K-On, or, K-On is a more slice-of-life and laid back version of Yorimoi. People who loved either of them will definitely like the other, if not love it all the same. read more
The characters are pretty much copied and pasted. Tall shy girl with black hair. Happy go lucky girl that wants to do something with her youth/high school years, also with brown hair. Rich girl who just wants to experience a normal life and have friends. Energetic girl who hates boring things and behaves like a child.
Obviously my statements here are pretty vague but once you think about it you can't "unthink" it. Especially if you watched k-on first.
Not saying it's a bad thing by any means cause if you enjoyed one you'll probably enjoy the other. (I did)
An all-girl cast of quirky and unique characters with a similar premise of finding something to be passionate about and making friends. A fun and hilarious laid-back story filled with hilarious character interactions.
K-ON is about high school girls coming together to form a Light Music Club.
Sora yori mo Tooi Basho is about high school girls trying to go to Antarctica.
Both shows have similar type of humor and there is a lot of shared traits between girls' personalities.
If you liked one of them you will probably like the other one as well.
Slice of life show focused largely on character interaction/relationships where four high-school girls set off on an adventure to Antarctica.
Characters have personalities similar to K-On and the humor is similar as well.
High school clubs about music. In K-On it's the light music club, and in Tari Tari it's choir. Both series also feature quite the quirky cast, although the main character lineup in K-On is significantly derpier and more geared toward "cute girls doing cute things," while the lineup in Tari Tari is more relatable to the viewer and is mixed, i.e. both guys and girls.
"Cute girls doing cute stuff in a cute way"
Is a bad label for this recommendation and I feel bad for using it, but it's "somewhat" correct.
As long as you don't get into Tari Tari expecting another K-ON, you're fine.
Starting with their similarities,
both series have this "school music club" setup that populated this medium like a uncontrollable wave during the past years. They have music (duh, obviously) and friendship as the main focus.
While both shows are almost episodic, they are tight to a central theme that takes the main stage during the climax of the final episodes.
K-ON holds strong to the "friends are forever" message and tries to create a cute, healing show. Tari Tari more or like does the same, but in a more serious, down-on-earth way.
Nice performances in both of them.
Now for their differences, which I believe to be the main reason someone should watch both:
Music enthusiasts will have a joy with Tari Tari. It explores theory, terminology and classical styles further than almost any recent music-themed series. A refreshing break from the J-POP J-Rock K-ON and likes constantly bring.
Also, while K-ON holds strongly on the "moe" and fluffiness effect to make characters likable, Tari Tari doesn't have concerns with that. It gives us this group of "normal" characters, each with his own issues that slowly, but surely, you start to care for them and wish them well.
Another key difference comes down to music again, more specifically, musical performance.
K-ON have the school band setup, but it stays as a side plot element during the majority of the series. On Tari Tari however, it's constantly shifting positions with a coming-of-age drama.
This means more insert songs and actual performances from the cast, opposing the common "guest-star". Said cast is formed by both veterans and newcomers seiyuus but all well skilled on singing, something that greatly increases the immersion (and enjoyment) factor of the series.
Sweet heartwarming stories that knows exactly their place.
K-ON with its easygoingness, Tari Tari as a "light" musical drama. read more
Both animes feature a slice of life-style genre with the addition of music as a main feature: choir for Tari Tari and "Light-music" for K-ON!. They feature a distinct cast, too, each character having clear personalities. For example, Both Mio and Wien are somewhat clueless and childish, yet very passionate about their friends and interests.
- Forming a music club.
- High school setting.
- Not much of a story but isn't too random.
- Rather easy watching, K-On! more-so.
- Vibrant characters.
- K-On! has moe and silly characters. TT has beautiful and realistic characters.
- Art style. I find TT more visually impressive.
- K-On! is very light hearted. TT has drama.
- K-On!'s band play J-Pop/Rock. TT are a choir group.
- K-On!'s cast is all female whilst TT is mixed with gender and age.
Both are a joy to watch. I don't think the two are that similar apart from the setting and plot. K-On starts off rather slow but really picks up in the middle with Azusa's appearance. It's silly, easy, fun and moetastic. TT has melodrama, more character development and variety than just music. Still I recommend if you watched one of these then have a shot at the other. read more
Both anime have the same genre (musical)
Take the same place, school
The characters are in the same club
But Tari Tari have some boys character.. K-ON don't have any boys character..
I think both anime have same storyline.. So, if you liked Tari Tari or K-ON you should try the other one..
Tari Tari and K-On both center on a group of high school students forming a music group and to perform in front of others. Tari Tari is a group for choir, while K-On is a group for light music. The group in Tari Tari consists of mixed: boys and girls and K-On consists of all girls. In both series, the characters each have their unique personalities and traits. The atmosphere of both series are really colourful and cheerful. Overall, both are pleasant and fun to watch.
Music is powerful. It can be moving, interesting, and engaging. Fortunately, K-On! and Tari Tari not only achieves that but they also use music in a way that unites friends from all walks of life. Furthermore, both shows have very realistic and relatable characters that set goals for themselves - whether it's something as simple as learning to play an instrument or something more complicated as building relationships. The artwork quality in both shows is also remarkable. Definitely would recommend both as each show is only 13 episodes long.
Both features slice of life comedy with a group of girls. Both guaranteed to bring a laugh with their silly antics. Their group dynamics and personalities are different from each other, but it still gives a similar feel. k-on is in a music club setting, and gwudk is in a cafe setting.They don't get too in-depth into music/coffee-making, but there's still a bit of reference. If you love one of them, you would definitely like the other.
Both focus on a group of girls and their life together! while in K-On it's a band and in gochuumon its a café! Relaxing and cute!
Also, the protagonist in both anime are very similar!
If you enjoy one, you'll likely to enjoy the other!
No one has done this yet? Really?
-both shows are about a group of girls doing random but cute stuff
-the atmosphere is light and fluffy
-both shows can give you moe-induced diabities
-cocoa/chino's "relationship" reminds me of yui/azusa's "relationship"
It has the same feel to it, its the same atmosphere, only one difference, one is music-wised, the other is job-wised. Same main protagonist doting on a little girl too much. I truly recommend K-On for those who watched this anime, and vice-versa too. One of the moe-est anime :P
Kokoa = Yui
Chino = Azusa
Rize = Mio
Sharo = Ritsu
Chiya = Mugi
Both shows involve a group of girls who hang out, eat snacks, and drink either tea or coffee. They are both slice of life shows, so they focus on the character interactions rather than an active plot. I first connected these shows in my head because in K-On!, Yui has a memorable performance as a tree in a play and in Gochuumon, Chino says that she once played a tree very assertively. There is a slight difference in setting between the two shows. K-On! takes place mainly in a school clubroom, while Gochuumon takes place in various cafes. K-On! also has a musical component that is not present in Gochuumon. Personally I thought Gochuumon was more consistently funny than K-On!, but both are enjoyable and worth watching. read more
-Both anime tell about cute girls doing cute things.
-Both anime characters personality are super cute.
-Both anime contain many jokes and comedies from the activity that the characters did.
-Both anime have two season.
-In the middle part, both anime have the same amount of main character.
They're both just cute girls doing cute things. One is cute girls playing in a band, and the other is cute girls running a coffee shop. There isn't any real story, and both are slice of life with plenty funny and cute moments.
Both animes have some similar histories about music, a lot of musical references and of course a little band wanting to get bigger. There some other references but if i say it could be a spoiler so, watch it and make your conclusion. ^^
Well apart from that K-on is about a club of girls playing, this time it's about a local band in Tokyo trying to become successful while working through their hardships of making it to fame while having some twists in romance and suspense in the plot itself.
While both shows don't exactly have the bes forms of music, and are in a weird balance of realistic and fantasy with their respective bands' popularity, they both share some great chemistry in the workings of the band. K-ON takes moe archetypes and fits them in with the bands positions, resulting with some well developed characters, Beck does a surprisingly good job of portraying the sort of tropes found in many real bands. Both shows have painstaking detail to every instrument, with K-ON only showing instruments in full detail for a few seconds sadly, but on the other hand, Beck's CG guitars look great but out of place. K-On is a masterpiece of KyoAni animation as with Beck being one of madhouses' better shows, although Beck can drop to QUALITY levels pretty quickly. Beck remains one of the few series I can recommend the dub, so I'm not going to make a comparison of CV talent. Overall these remain some of the best anime for music fans. read more
Both animes obviously have to do something with musicians, however, while K-ON is concentrated more on moe style designs and a more comedic tone, Beck has more of a realistic approach concerning art and is all the more serious with it's story line.
If you watched one, you might or might not like the other. Both are inspiring to the musician.
First all I have to say is, Kawaii!!!!! They both revolve around the daily lives of cute young girls and their friends. Both stories are very light hearted and employ simple life lessons on friendship and enjoying life. Don't expect for your intellect to be challenged with these series, but instead watch them with a relaxed state of mind and enjoy the comedy of the antics these lovable characters get involved in each episode. K-On!'s story is more related to music, and the girls are in highschool. Non Non Biyori girls are a variety of ages, and the story involves life in the Japanese country side. If you are feeling sad or could use a good laugh, either of these are a good choice to put a smile on your face. read more
You will see that both story is mainly about a bunch of school girls enjoying their everyday life to their fullest. While K-on! had music element and takes place in a city, Non non biyori got the countryside feel.
Its very similar. First of all, it's also Sweet to watch. There isn't a "Hard" Story. There are 5 Girls like in K-ON!. They have fun together and so on. The difference is only that K-ON! has Music but Non Non Biyori not.
A really cute show. Cuter than K-On! to my opinion. The cuteness killed me, the jokes killed me, both anime shows just ******* killed me! If your depressed or unhappy, this is a must-watch! Both anime shows taught me more about the Japanese culture.
Very similar to K-on! in terms of humor and relations. Non non biyori is about countryside and k-on! is about school music club, but they actually are both very funny and cute comedies about 4 girls having their time spent together.
These two anime are both lighthearted slice of life series that follow the daily lives of a group of girls. They're both heartwarming and relaxing to watch. If you enjoy watching anime where cute girls do cute things, you'll probably like both the series.
Although non non biyori is about daily life in the countryside and k-on is about music and school.Both shared a similar style in k-on,they are both in flurry flurry style and hilarious with some cute moments too.
Manabi = Ritsu, Mika = Yui ,Mei = Mio, Momo = Tsumugi
The humor and Slice of Life elements are quite smilar.
Both are trying to bring back a club in Manabi straight its the Student Council and K-ON! it's well, the K-ON! club!
Manabi is set in the very slightly not so distant future, where a slice of life anime takes place involving girls in a club not doing a whole lot but still managing to make a great, cute, adorable, anime. Manabi is K-on minus the music. Momo is Mugi, Manabi is Yui, Mika is Mio, Mei is Azusa, Mucchii is Ritsu
All right, how do I begin...They're both about cute girls who attempt to save some sort of activity (in Manabi's case, the student council) through believing in themselves and inspiring moments, against some sort of odds. Most of the cast of Manabi have K-ON! counterparts that are unmistakable, and really, the overall feel made me rename K-ON! "Manabi Straight With Guitars". So, if you like K-ON!, there is absolutely no reason why you won't like Manabi.
Both are about a group of girls doing things in school.
However, Manabi Straight has an actual plot and a strangely satisfying ending. Also, the setting is more interesting. In any case, dont watch K-On if you expect any kind of plot like in Manabi straight, because there is none.
K-ON! and Manabi are both about five girls who are in a club together (the Light Music club and Student Council respectively). Even though K-ON! seems to be a lot more popular, I personally consider Manabi to be a lot better.
"Don't stop, keep trying." A quote used from the main characters that gives up on something where is about to shut down, but manage to get people's attention and gained it's popularity. There are characters that are quite similar in here: Ritsu = Manabi, Mio = Mei, Yui = Mikan etc. There are some funny and cute moments from time to time.
The difference is that Manabi Straight is set in a near future like setting, a balance of comedy-drama story, and focuses on the student council activities. K-on focuses on music, the present day, much more comedy and focuses on club activities.
Both of these series were animated by Kyoto Animation, featuring similar quality and style in animation. Both accentuate cute "moe" qualities, light but relaxing slice of life-like episodes, and innocent high school comedy.
Series have a lot in common, for starters they have the same art style.
In both series we have group of girls who are trying to get on big stage.
In both series there are some really nice songs.
However, Idolm@ster has a bigger variety of characters and more things are going on there. It is not just music orientated but music is the main point in the series.
Both series involves a group of girls using their talents in the world of music.
Both series has comedy and drama throughout episodes involving music and life.
Both series contain similar character designs.
Both series contain the slice-of-life theme
Both series have a fun style.
From a general perspective, both shows are musically-themed anime that integrate a heavy slice-of-life approach. Because of this, both shows are very easy to follow as there is no complicated plotline or terminology present. Also, in both shows, there is plenty of music that is sprinkled throughout the plot. Finally, both shows also have a cast that is supermajority female (if you took out the Producer in The iDOLM@STER, they'd be all female). If you liked either show you will definitely like the other.
These two are pretty much the same (the first few episodes are extremly similar) with K-On! being about a group of girls trying to form a band and Free! being a group of guys trying to form a swimming club. Both are very light hearted and simple shows and the characters are extremly cliched and moe in both. They also share the same producers.
K-On! and Free! are pretty much the same thing but with the genders reversed and one being a music club instead of a swim club.Both show involve the main characters finding members for there club in the beginning to help reach their goal,hanging out and doing cute things and becoming good friends.
Free! is about a bunch of cute boys in a swimming club, while K-On is about a bunch of cute girls in a light music club. Both have characters which are rather cliched characters, but are more than their cliches. They are both also about working hard towards being the best at something, but K-On does have more messing around. They both also have excellent animation straight from the studio of KyoAni.
Ladies and gents, don't let the negativity of certain immature people keep you away from either anime.
If you like one, you're very likely to enjoy the other.
Both have similar, fun humor that relies on characterization.If you like essentially good-natured characters interacting and a peaceful type of atmosphere, I can recommend both anime highly.
Both are enjoyable slice-of-life comedies set in highschool starring an almost entirely female cast. Very similar humor and character types. Azumanga Daioh is a bit surreal at times and K-ON has the Moe-factor and a focus on music.
k-on and azumanga daioh is somewhat similar because they are bunch of/ group of girls having no similar personalities but they just get along well after that significant circumstances....they are all so funny LOL .. ^_^
Azumanga Daioh is a first generation school life anime. While not music-based and still random (seeing its a general school life genre), it has a more meaningful and funny storyline than K-ON! with a broader variety of characters.
Well, K-on! is more or less evolutioned azumanga. Both are moe-slice comedies, and K-on! is similar in a lot of small details like Mugi eyebrows=Chio pigtails and other stuff like that.
A lot of tempers remain the same also, Sawako is more or less equal to Yukari, for example.
Although K-on! has only one "salty" joke unlike azumanga, both shows remain a lot of similarities and if you liked one you should probably enjoy the other one.
If you're looking for a similar type of bond between four girls. Both shows are funny and revolve around four friends, and some of them even look similar. K-on is more focused on music whereas railgun is more concentrated on super powers. Both are recommended! :)
Although I liked Railgun much better than K-On, the group dynamic has some similarities.
They both follow the "Cute girls doing Cute things" undertone than lots of Moe anime have.
K-On, as you probably know, is about music whereas Railgun is about a badass chick that shoots lightning from her mind.
They both have a fair bit of humor too if you like that, I personally liked Railgun's humor more but one or the other might work better for someone else.
First of all it's about a group of girls having "fun".
Railgun is a bit more serious and dramatic, but it has the elements to "love" the girls and especially the maincharachter(s) which is Yui/K-On and Misaka/Railgun.
Both shows are slice of life anime about a bunch of cute girls. The "main" girl joins a club even though she doesn't know much about the subject of the club, but they have a little trouble creating the club due to a lack of members and advisor. Yui from K-On can be seen as a mix of the both main chars in Hanayamata since she is not very confident, like Naru, but she's enthusiastic and lively like Hana.
K-On! is about music and Hanayamata is about Yosakoi dancing, also K-On! is a lot more lively overall. However, both shows mainly aim to being "cute" and have slight Yuri subtitles due to a lack of male characters. read more
A group o friends coming together with similar interests. K-On and Hanayamata has a small ye favorable cast when it comes to storytelling. An important element also related to their work is the music as that too part of its gimmick.
Recmmended for fans of slice of life involving clubs and music.
Both are about cute girls who are all best friends with each other and participate in a club. The only differences are that K-On! is about a band club, while HaNaYaMaTa is about a yosakoi club, and that HaNaYaMaTa has a little more drama. If you enjoyed the cuteness of K-On!, you will definitely enjoy HaNaYaMaTa!
Although Hanayamata has not yet finished airing, it draws many comparisons to K-On!. They both are a slice of life anime that revolves around a group of high school girls that initially struggle to start a club (an increasingly common trend). However K-On! And Hanayamata stand out similarly in regards to their type of club and the directive storyline. In both these anime, the club is centered on a performance based activity, with a light music club in K-On! and a yosakoi dancing club in Hanayamata. Their stories are notable in that they center on the struggles and hardships the girls face, both in their personal lives as well as in pursuing club goals. I greatly appreciate K-On! and Hanayamata’s focus on the bonds and deep friendships the develop, instead of the ecchi and crude humor commonly found in this genre. I would characterize both anime as more than slice of life, due to the nature of the clubs, which provides a strong guiding storyline and a goal the characters strive for, as opposed to simply the daily homogenous club activities, although those can be found intermittently.
K-On!, with its great cast of characters, has been a long time favorite of mine and Hanayamata is shaping up to be as well. There are five main characters in both anime, who throughout the story, develop distinctive characterizations, although Hanayamata seems to rely a bit more on prevalent archetypes. However, as I had mentioned, since Hanayamata is still airing, this may change. There are parallels that can be drawn between the characters in both anime, the most obvious one being Tami from Hanayamata and Tsumugi from K-On!, who are both the rich and proper girl. The others are more debatable but Naru from Hanayamata seems to exhibit the same shyness and lack of confidence as with the popular Mio from K-On!. Another parallel in in the rambunctious and unabashed club leaders, Hana from Hanayamata and Ritsu from K-On!. A new favorite of mine, Yaya from Hanayamata, expresses “tsundere” tendencies, which can be seen in both Mio and Azusa from K-On!, although the K-On! characters are more quiet and reserved. The lead character Yui of K-On! seems to be a bit more unique, perhaps only drawing similar traits of airheadedness and naivety with the lead Naru from Hanayamata. However, as the fifth character from Hanayamata has yet to be fully introduced and implemented into the club, this again, may all change.
Of course, there are still differences to be found between these anime, the main one being their visual style. Hanayamata displays a more airbrushed quality, while K-On!, being produced by Kyoto Animation, has its distinct and recognizable style. Hanayamata also features a unique style in the eyes of the characters, which have been received negatively by some, but I personally find the art to be lovely and refreshing.
Overall, I greatly recommend both anime and if you are a fan of one of them, be sure to watch the other! They are both character based anime with a great driving storyline. Although I am not sure if Hanayamata will rise to the high standard set by K-On!, it is already greatly enjoyable and if it stays its course, may become a great anime in its own right.
PS - I just noticed Hanayamata is the first syllable of all the characters names, which is awesomely cool! read more
Both shows revolve around a similar plot and storyline - the close friendship of the girls, the hardships of a recruiting members for their club, and pursuing their dreams. Both shows also focus on character development and are about a group of cute girls in a slice of life and music based setting though K-On! is about a Light Music Club and Hanayamata is about Yosakoi dancing. If you loved K-On!, you'll probably enjoy Hanayamata.
Both are as pointless as it gets, but they are cute as they are pointless however. One is about a slice of life story about people working in a restaurant, and the other is a about a gaggle of high school girls drinking tea when they should be playing music. I guarantee if you like one, you'll like the other.
If your watching K-on!!, watch Working!! to see many funny stuff like what you see in K-on!!, but this time, its all about Drama, Young Life and of course Comedic fun! See similar characters like the reversal of Mio being tall and Taneshima being Short! So enjoy!
Just watching the first episode made me feel like i was watching a new season of Clannad. They had the same problem trying to get the club in motion, the have the same clumsy, shy, Nagisa like character, honestly it got me thinking about the music club Clannad. If you like Clannad i think your going to like this slice of life too.
Both involves club-related activities, with only difference is that Clannad is more focus on drama while K-On! is on comedy. Plus, both female main characters (Nagisa from Clannad, Yui from K-On!) has a bit similarity between them. Both anime are enjoyable to watch.
Aiura and K-ON! Are comedy and slice of life anime, that take place in a school setting. Aiura’s comedy, characters and their cute personalities all harken to K-ON!’s "cute girls doing cute things" style of comedy. Both series also offer superb, very fluid and really similar animation. The only downside to Aiura is that it’s a bit short and it doesn’t have much plot development in it, compared to K-On! But it’s safe to say that if you liked watching either of them you shouldn't hesitate to try out the other.
Just like Aiura, K-On! has very nice animation and art style. K-On! is a show about a group of girls making a school music club, or so they say. Actually it is a show about a group of girls talking to each other and having fun, same deal as Aiura. Both shows are slow paced, but unlike Aiura, K-On! has a little bit of story development. And also, episodes of K-On! have normal length, so you are getting four times as much cuteness per episode.
Aiura and K-on are about everyday school life of cute girls. Plot isn't most important part of these shows, it's the cuteness and relaxing atmosthere. Both titles look also very good. The biggest difference between them is their length, K-on has 2 seasons, few OVAs and a movie, while Aiura has only 12 4-minute long episodes.
Neither has much of a plot, but they feature cute girls just doing cute things. The main difference is that K-On! is two seasons and a movie, whereas Aiura is just twelve 4-minute shorts. Both are genuinely enjoyable and well worth the watch if you just want something lighthearted and adorable.
Both comedy and slice of life anime. Both take place in a school. The image, the clima and the environment are very close to each other. As a short anime, the plot are very reduced in Aiura, when in K-On! there is something more elaborated.
Both animes deal with a group of students trying to keep thier own clubs alive by trying to get new members and apparently both were complete with some troubles with the Students Council as well.
Both are different clubs though, but both were extremely enjoyable and relaxing, and lets not forget funny XD
Both series revolves around a group of friends in a club doing fun things that they enjoy.
Both series takes place in a school life setting where every day presents a new challenge that brings drama, joy, and also sometimes emotions.
Both series are lighthearted and has a similar feeling, the feeling of enjoying life at its fullest with the activities you do with your friends.
Both series center around music even though the styles are very different the sense of humor from both series is light and interesting and they both have art styles that set them apart from other animes.
-Both have to do with music
-Both are funny
-Nodame and Yui are similar in a way
-Nodame Cantabile has more music than K-ON! and (in my opinion) it's better than K-ON!
-Defenetly watch Nodame Cantabile, you will not be dissappointed!!! ^_^
Two fun-loving female leads insert themselves into a slice-of-life comedy that revolves around music. While Nodame Cantabile leans towards slapstick and romance, and K-on is more "cute girls doing cute things", they both feature a very similar sense of humor and an overall lighthearted, relaxing mood.
They are similar because both main characters learn music by hearing it, and they have the same voice. They are both about music and there's this funny/comedy thing about the main characters that makes you say " so cute."
Obviously both anime are all about clubs and the members' passion in their club. Both have comedy, though K-on! is funnier (i think). However, Bamboo Blade have some slice of seriousness at times. Both clubs in the anime had the time where they were about to split up (where members starts not to show up in the clubroom). Bithe moe animes ^^
Both series takes place in a school setting involving a club of students doing activities. The club is ultimately formed after getting enough members in both anime(s) and from there, the fun begins.
There's plenty of comedy, drama, and that slice-of-life feeling.
Both series also has characters of contrasting personalities ranging from shy, energetic, to fiercely competitive.
-Both anime's animation look really similar because they are created by the same character designer (Yukiko Horiguchi) and they both surround school life, comedy, drama, slice of life, as the story focuses on their daily life in their respective clubs.
Only difference is that K-ON's story focuses on comedy and the daily life of a group of girls, while Kokoro Connect focuses on drama/romance.
Although music is not a major theme in Kokoro Connect, both series has some parallel similarities that are drawn together:
*Both series has similar character designs of the main characters with a similar setting taking place at a school.
*Both series has a slice of life theme to it involving the main characters
*Both series has comedy and drama that are executed well and not forced
*Both series details the relationship between the characters and how they progress through friendship (romance in Kokoro Connect among some of the cast characters)
K-On really seems like it's Ichigo Mashimaro in High School. As for the episodes. While there is no definitive plot in either of them. There is a sequence that they follow, and they don't keep things random.
4 girls who hang out, and have a great time, all the time. As well as a 5th, older girl who likes to dress them up as Cosplay. That's the main theme that they share. Though the actually theme of each would be a bit different (^.^)
- Both anime are contain of All Girls group.
- Carefree Daily life.
- Loveable character.
- Slow And Calm Faced.
- Each Character from both tried to become better at something, Musician (K-ON) and Undine (Aria)
though here plot is not really something important, but the quiet atmosphere and the wonderful soundtrack from both make those are really good.
Lighthearted slice of life shows about a group of girls who all practice together but often get sidetracked (though not as much in Aria as in K-On). Good animation despite some strange facial expressions during comedic moments (especially in Aria).
Aria has more of a teacher/student relationship built up than K-On, but there is still one teacher in K-On who is somewhat similar to Akira in Aria.
Love Lab is similar to K-ON in a way that the characters are all cute and they are female and their daily activity revolves around their club. The only difference of K-ON from Love Lab is that K-ON focuses on "music" while Love Lab focuses on "love." But overall, if you liked K-ON, A Channel, and Lucky Star, I would recommend you to watch Love Lab as well! <3
In various senses, K-On! and Love Lab shares some similarities including the cast that is made up of cute girls doing cute things. Rather though, they are united as a club to do daily activities.
Love Lab exclusively focuses on the concept of love while K-On!'s style leans more into the music genre. However, both series offers that slice of life format that is suitable for any audience. There's a lot of humor and lighthearted dialogues in both series that is fun to watch.
K-On! and Love Lab are just jam packed with awesome moe-ness!
Both series consist of a bunch of cute highschool girls who work together to achieve their respective goals.
K-On! focuses more on practicing their instruments and putting up good performances (enjoying cake and tea as well). While Love Lab focuses more on the research and experimenting of the many aspects of.... love.
If you enjoy cute girls doing cute things which causes them to end up in hilarious situations, then watch either :D
Both series features an all female cast where they are part of a group/team. As such, they often hang out together doing various activities. The difference though is K-On! is more music oriented while Stella Jogakuin Koutou-ka C³-bu packs some action involving guns and competitions.
However, both series has a lighthearted atmosphere in a school life environment. Additionally, some of these activities puts together teamwork at test. Oh and let's not forget about the tea...the delicious tea and cake....
Very lighthearted and focused on comedy, with vibrant and heavily stylized artwork. The addition of a male protagonist gives Chuunibyou a slightly different feel, however, but fans of K-ON will find plenty to enjoy here.
Both shows spend most of their time familiarizing you with the characters and getting you attached, then end with an absolutely beautiful moment of fulfillment. If you like that sort of payoff, then either of these shows would be just right for you.
Sport and musical flavored bishoujo fan-servicing goodness. These are what one of the best-selling anime genre for male looks like, cute girls, cute activities, and if possible, suggestively lesbian.
Both are not entirely legit as sport or musical genre, but are the very candidate of the bishoujo anime appealing to male demography. We all know that the females' media preference for man on man is increasing (It's 21st century, Sir) but what we should also know is that it's also true the other way round.
Oh yes the similarities, both show features variety of different girls so fans can pair them up to their liking. Not to mention that both shows are the slice-of-life comedy with focus around recreational activities. Production quality may not quite as high as KyoAni goodness, but Softenni is encouraged for K-On! lovers. read more
Both anime are part of the recent huuuuge moe wave that's coming on. Both are focused on a particular interest, and both anime actually show the interest. Both anime have an all-girls cast, and even their personalities are similar. Ritsu and Kotone are both the super-energetic person, Tsumugi and Elizabeth are both the adorable, soft-voiced but rich girls and Yayoi and Azusa are the overly cute/moe girls. Both contain suggestive lesbian content and their demography is mostly male.
K-ON is basically Hidamari sketch with musical setting.
Both set in super-positive ideal world filled with super-friendly characters.
Both story featured four main heroine attended in same school with similar interest, one is art and other is music.
Both series have common stereotyped manga characters
And Yui is Yuno lacking one hairclip.
Both Hidamari Sketch and K-On! are slice-of-life comedies with four female high school students as main characters, who attempt to transform their life experiences into artistic expressions. The latter similarity places K-On! much closer to Hidamari Sketch than it is to Lucky Star.
Both are easygoing slice-of-life comedy animes about four high school girls, and the characters in one have similar personalities to that of the other. However, the main theme in K-On is music, while Hidamari Sketch focuses more on art.
Hidamari Sketch is like K-On without music club, yes it's a cute girls show about basically nothing. They're very similar in term of 'how do you enjoy' cute girl show (like how moe it's etc), but different in how the show develops its characters. While K-On develops the characters in a very subtle way, Hidamari Sketch requires you to develop the character for yourself. Because Hidamari Sketch structured achronologically each episode, you have to understand how the characters current trait or condition in a certain time. Sounds complicated? Not really. You have to watch it for yourself to understand how beatiful both shows are. I consider them as the best CGDCT anime out there and that really is saying something.
Also, Hidamari Sketch polished with colorful palettes and visual tricks by SHAFT.  read more
-all girl group doing randomly cute stuff.
Yui = Shino - Airhead/Boke Character
Azunyan = Alice - Moe Character
(Yui's fondness with Azunyan is the same with Shino's fondness with Alice)
Ayaya = Mio - Tsukkomi/Moe/Ms.Perfect (ayaya is a lesbo though)
Yoko = Ritsu - Tsukkomi/Boke (they're both the boyish characters in their respective series)
Mugi = Karen - Ojou-sama characters (though Mugi is a Ms. Perfect character because her grades are high, but in general, Karen and Mugi are both the richest in their group of friends.)
On a side note:
Isami = Ui - Siscons
Karasu-chan = Sawa-chan - Sensei's who look after the main cast, they're both weird sometimes, oh! and megane characters. :) read more
K-On! and Hyouka are quite similar hence this recommendation.
+Both series takes place at school like setting with a club of friends doing fun things; the activities they enjoy.
+Both series' art style are similar given that the same producers are involved. (Kyoto Animation)
+Additionally, both series' main female protagonists has the same voice actress.
+Both series contain plenty of comedy, drama, and also some emotional moments that makes it worthwhile to watch.
This Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai OVA is a rather good parody of K-ON!. For audiences who have watched K-ON already and at least enjoy it to a certain degree, this OVA from a seemingly unrelated series is comedic gold.
Both are filled with comedy, although of vastly differing genres, but the biggest similarity between the two remains the big draw of in show music, and this is where both shows sign. K-ON has sort of half over detailed concert/music video, while DMC has the crowd's reactions to unusual stage events, which remains the funniest thing about DMC. Fans of these probably won't overlap, with K-ON picked up by S-O-L fans and DMC by fans of Cromatarie or metalheads, but while DMC is pure untampered awesome, K-ON's awesome-ness doesn't really show until you think about how much you are enjoying a story about 4 girls in high school with musical aspirations and somehow, words like "badass" can get thrown around, esp with Sawako. read more
Do you like an amazingly written plot which actually moves forward very subtly and an outstanding cast of cute, all-female characters? Both K-On as well as New Game have this in store for you! Both animes are about an all-female cast having fun together, while subtly reaching a goal which doesn't seem obvious at the time but is revealed at the end. Just as in K-on, New Game has this awesome chemistry between all the characters, as they're all friends working towards the same goal. They eat and drink together, have fun together and work hard together. Both shows rely heavily on cuteness and comedy, while being very subtle about it's plot line. read more
The series are both lighthearted comedies that feature cute girls doing cute things. Despite being slice of life anime, they both have a slowly advancing plot. In both shows, the main character joins a group of girls and they end up working towards a common goal. If you enjoy watching lighthearted anime with cute girls in them, you'll probably like both shows.
Bakuon is a lot like K-On, except with way more fanservice and with motorcycles instead of music. All five club members with speaking roles in each series are the same basic character types (Hane=Yui, Onsa=Ritsu, Rin=Mio, Hijiri=Mugi, and Chisame=Azusa), and Bakuon also shares some similar plot points with K-On, too.
very very similar.. i thought i couldn't find anything like Bakuon anymore.
they both have
MC - very clumsy girl/airhead/
That always so energetic girl
The Rich kid
they're so similar the difference would be motorcycle = music
They're both similar as they're about cute girls who are in a band playing music and are both full of moe overload but they're also different in the way that K-ON! is a more realistic, slice of life series where as Show By Rock!! is a much more fantasy type of show with a little bit of action thrown in there, well if you can call it that.
The characters are very similar both in appearance and personalities
- Outgoing leader (Ritsu and Sakura)
- Best friend of the outgoing leader [only ones with drastically different personalities despite similar designs] (Mio and Botan)
- Rich girls who are literally clones aside from the tea (Mugi and Claire)
- Adorable airhead (Yui and Karin)
- "Mature" one who is quick to point out all of the dumb and incorrect things everyone says (Azusa and Natsuki)
They are all in clubs (Light Music Club/Going Home Club) in which they usually do absolutely nothing except talk and be moe. K-On is also about music whereas KKK is about breaking the 4th wall.
Both are about a group of girls that just lay around in some school club doing pretty much nothing most of the time
Both are light hearted comedies, with no major plot
Characters on both are really similar, you can notice in Botan and Sakura the same non caring, sometimes stupid, attitude of Ritsu and Yui. Natsuki has the same urge to keep things under control that Azuza has, and finally Claire is the exact same character as Mugi
Yuru Camp is basically K-On!, nine years later. Yes, you won't be seeing Gibson, and Fender here, but you'll still be seeing moe things, and get the CGDCT-feel you're always looking for.
Right off the bat, Nadeshiko is pretty much Yui in long, pink hair: klutzy, ditzy, airheadynamic moe. Then you'll still get four additional main CGDCT-shoujos, and all of them goes on about their everyday slice-of-moe-life.
And oh, Aki Toyosaki is also here of, as well.
So if you want to turn your heart as fluffy as marshmallow this 2018, look no further.
Both animes start off with an all girl high school cast as their main characters struggling to get something ready for their high school festivals and before graduation. What Shirobako does, is graduate them within the first episode, and then show what the girls are doing in college/work. If you enjoyed the feel-good, moe, and struggles of K-On! you'll see some parallels with the cast from Shirobako as they struggle to meet their deadlines in all their girlie cuteness. Highly recommended.
Shirobako feels much like the K-On series: It's a comedic, light-hearted anime that centers around a group of young female donut-addicts, who upon graduation, vow to one day create an anime together. In a very cute manner, the show documents the girls struggling to keep up with their work, and furthering their careers while attempting to adjust to their new adult lives. One can also appreciate that Shirobako is filled with great references to many iconic shows of the past few decades. (Initial D, Gurren Lagann, just to name a few.)
Both feature a cast genki girls.
In both anime the girls start off in highschool.
The plots are cheery and fun, but with slight hit of drama and psychology sprinkled all over the series.
Both are swell as hell.
K-on! and Gj-bu are always in the club room having Tea and Cake.
They both have most of the story held in their respective club room
K-On! it's an all girls club Gj-bu has 1 boy and 5 girls in the club
The premise of K-ON! and Neptunia are both about cute girls being brought together due to a common cause and in both series, end up doing cute things. While the setting may differ greatly, both series are light-hearted in nature and the girls' antics are guaranteed to leave you in laughter.
Oh God, these two anime series are just too adorable. Well in general terms, it is made of a dominant female cast or more precisely cute girls. Otherwise, K-On! does feature more of a slice of life outlook at a school life setting while Choujigen Game Neptune: The Animation is more of the fantasy genre. Regardless though, both series are adorable. The tea parties, the solid voice acting, the lighthearted backgrounds, the reoccurring humor, the interactions between the main characters...it's all there.
The premise of bring about peace and serenity through friendships and mischievous quirks is achieved through a formulaic yet dynamic sequence of 'cute girls doing cute things.' Although unrealistic, it is unanimous that the connections between several characters are visible and delectably so. Neptune sways the group with her clumsy spirit and thirst for adventure, much like Yui's obsession with tea, and sometimes cake too. Azunyan, a reincarnated, and objectively better version of Noire, is the charitable leader whose charisma may, in the very literal sense, misguide young men into a seduced stage of hypnotism, of entrapment, where their mind and soul is swirling in an endless quagmire of having to choose between two young maidens of the same occupation and, well, same mediocrity. read more
Moe girls doing cute things. Both of these series focuses the will to become an official group that people are willing to recognize in the realm of sports and music. There are some hints of romance in Ro-Kyu-Bu! but both series have comedy and drama.
Well... First things first two of the K-On voice actresses (Yoko Hikasa and Minako Kotobuki) play an important role in the anime which I found quite amusing at first. And the fact that both anime series' revolve around a group of girls trying to put what they love (Basketball and Music) before anything else is amazing. Plus the girls' personalities are awesome in both series :) I realized after watching Ro-Kyu-Bu and K-On that girls who have a lot of passion and dedication can get whatever they hope for.
Both shows are centered around females who are trying their best to achieve their goals and improve at what they like to do. Both have different themes, but they do have their similarities: plus, both are enjoyable! Oh, and Yui and Ohana seem very alike - both are pretty clueless in a cute way. xD
Both shows are a slice of life that centers around a group of girls who face their everyday battles as they learn who they are and what they hope to become as they grow up.
Yui (K-ON) and Ohana (Hanasaku Iroha) share a similar quirky, ambitious, and sometimes misunderstood personality.
Kanamemo is, shortly, a yuri version of K-ON!, minus the music.
In K-ON! the girls are in a music club, while in Kanamemo they work in a newspapers delivery office. Both the protagonists (Yui and Kana) are voiced by Aki Toyosaki, and are surrounded by female friends who support them. However, like I said before, Kanamemo has yuri: in fact, there is a side canon lesbian couple, a perverted woman who likes loli and a girl who is in love with the protagonist. There is no romance though, so even if you don't like yuri much but you like shows like K-ON! you may enjoy Kanamemo as well, because the feel is the same. They are both slice of life with girls doing... nothing special, but they're entertaining in their own way. read more
First of all, these are great anime I must say.
These anime both involves how they spent their highschool and how they bonded with each other at that time. Kimi to Boku may not be a "musical" anime, but I can tell you right now that K-on and Kimi to Boku have a lot in common.
Both are slice-of-life comedies set in one-gender highschools (All Girls/Boys School).
"K-On!" is focused on female main characters while "Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou" is focused on male main characters.
Young girls that are reunited in a club (music in K-On!, mahjong in Saki), doing their best to fulfill their great ambitions. In Saki, though, they are more serious about it, really dedicating to mahjong in order to win tournaments (that they start right in the beginning of the series), while K-On!'s atmosphere is more light, and the girls are more doing for fun, even if their final goal is just as ambitious.
I think that K-On! is far more developed and has more lovable characters, and of course the music helps a lot, but if you like the genre you might enjoy Saki as well.
After the first episode it literally reminded me of K-On, because Saki and K-On have a group of girls trying to revive a club with an incredible past. Both have a specific goal to accomplish when they start their clubs (K-On perform at the school festival, and Saki make it into the mahjong tournament).
Watch the girls struggle as they are founding their club activities.
From what we know, girl baseball is not common in Taishou era, while founding music club in 2009 is as easy as gathering four people of same interest. So, while both stories feature same dramatic struggle of main characters trying to start their club, both shows have different degrees at the peek dramatic point.
Both of them also offer comedy element, so you don't stop watching them before they can start their club.
The shows used the struggle/settlement/victory model, common in sports and fighting series.
Bunch of cute girls decides to start light music band.
Lots of cuteness and moe.
Main difference is that Tenshi no 3P! actually has a male lead, thus is a harem, while K-ON! is clasicall "Cute Girls Doing Cute Things" with only girls.
Anyway, if you enjoyed one, you will most likely enjoy another.
Both focus on a small group of girls in a school club together overlooked by a teacher that visits them often, nearly identical styles of humor, and very similar traits between characters from both. However, while the overall theme of K-On is very light hearted the whole time, Gakkou Gurashi touches on heavier subjects.
Both anime have:
-Silly and clumsy MC
-A character younger than the MC but acts older
-A nice teacher watching over the club
-MC can get serious if she focuses
-Both give off a happy and nice feeling and have some funny moments
this seems like a strange recommendation to give, but hear me out:
-both from the same studio
-slice of life with detailed animation
I don't know if that sounds weird, but both of those anime I enjoyed the same way. Not the kind of way I would enjoy rewatching Steins;Gate or FMA:B, but a different kind of enjoyment.
also both have crazy good OPs
Both shows are about a group of girls who all go to the same high school and perform music together. In K-On! they are part of a band and school club, while in Locodol, they are local idols who promote their community. Both shows are laid back and have little if any drama. They both have some comedy, but the main focus is on the character interactions and warm atmosphere. If you enjoyed one, then you'll probably enjoy the other.
I feel that this anime is very similar to K-on. ( MUSIC + SPLICE OF LIFE)
Concepts - A School Club that have trouble to be officially made as the club has not met the expected number of members.
Friends of the Protagonist join the club and others as well and they get officially made as a club.They start off as a doubt and unpopular, but work together and have fun and soon become very popular at the school
Genre - Both are about music, One being mainly about School Idols and singing and the other being about a Music band with Guitar,Bass,Drums,Singing.....
Characters - Honoka (Love Live) & Yui (k-on) Both are clumsy and are lazy.
Both very enjoyable - I would prefer K-on more that Love Live IMO, To me it seems to have better feelings read more
Both K-On! and Girls und Panzer soely focus on girls together in a club in high school and have high school slice of life parts as well as their respective main themes of music or tanks. Both practicing and performing in competitions and enjoying life eating out and dealing with life's situations.
In both K-ON! & Girls und Panzer people band together with the hopes of reaching the top. At first reaching the top seems like an impossible task as they are faced with multiple problems along the way, as each of the groups grow at what first seemed an impossible task then starts to seem possible with enough time and effort. As time passes and they continue towards their goal of reaching the top they start to get noticed and more people start supporting them in their journey to the top.
Focused on school life and club activities, very stereotypical anime shows in these days.
Sorry to say this, but GA despite the fact that it looked sort of educational, it is not educational. The show fulfill comedy and slice of life genre by showing characters, their relationship, and how they react to each others actions. The slice of life element far exceed the educative contents its offered.For K-ON, of course it is not educational.
The only controversy of finding similarity in K-ON and GA are pace and storytelling style. K-ON is strictly follow 1-2-3, intro-conflict-solution common in slice of life. While GA episode doesn't necessarily has conflict. read more
Both of this anime have cute characters and are about music. I adore all of the songs from K-on! as well as from AKB0048 and I'm sure if you've already watched one of this anime, you'll love another one! The plot may not be to similar but the way how friendship has been showed is brilliant. I recommend it for all kawainess fans. I think that watching this anime is a good idea :)
They have pretty good music and they are funny in diffrent ways. Most of the time they are on the school that are in the series. Both have comedy and a little music.
K-ON have slice of life and comedy i think, but angel beats have more action and are a little supernatural
To be blunt, in my opinion, Flying Witch is a sort of mediocre Slice of Life anime and doesn't at all compete with K-On!'s great execution and consistency of interest. However, they show a lot of the same general aspect of humor, art style, and in some ways; character design. If you love Yui Hirasawa. you might like Flying Witch.
If you really like music anime series, try Nana / K-ON!. Both series are about music bands, trying to get famous. Warning though, Nana has more drama in to it and is more mature. K-ON! is more kawai and about school girls.
Both are slice-of-life series with female protagonists who are extremely close friends and have lots of lesbian undertones. Both feature main characters who are in a band, and both series center on rock and feature references to Western rock-stars. Also both series have a cute but naive main character who has short, brown hair and does extremely stupid things.
Both shows revolve around daily life in a high school club. The shows don't have any particular stories. Just chatter among the club members and the events almost always take place inside the club room.
Although the plot and characters are very different, the moe is still the same and that language is universal! If you're looking for another moe-filled, light, fluffy and cute anime to laugh at, K-ON! is perfect for you!
Both K-On and Aria are strong in conveying a relaxing atmosphere through pleasing visuals and a very beautiful soundtrack.
While the shows might seem rather different on first sight, the concepts are largely the same. You get to watch a small group of friends grow subtly, but steadily, going on little escapades or just acting in their respective environment.
Characters are strong in very similar ways (including all stereotypes and relationships), the melancholic and slightly nostalgic development and conclusion invoke very similar feelings.
Moreover I would recommend watching Aria first, since it is (imo) more successful in overcoming stereotypes and offering a broader experience, while still accenting all the strengths that K-On has to some extent. read more
Both of these stories involve a protagonist who faces some major difficulties in their life. Something bad happens to them and they feel let down, but they find a group who are willing to accept them for who they are. They aren't willing to join the group at first, but after sipping some hot drinks they're able to assimilate into the group. Although the stories may feel slow at times, seeing the characters achieve their goals is well worth it.
The main focus of these shows is cute girls doing awesome things. In K-On they play music, in Yama no Susume they climb mountains. In K-On the main character has no musical ability; in Yama no Susume the main character is afraid of heights. The music in K-On is great; the visuals in Yama no Susume is amazing. The second season of K-On is twice as long as the first and the second season of Yama no Susume is 8 times longer than the first. The shows are both about strengthening friendships by participating in an activity together.
You're looking for a relaxing and genuinely funny anime, which also has nice and likable characters that you'll start feeling as old friends while you progress watching? Well that's basically what K-On does, making us feel good just by following the Houkago's simple daily life, and Tanaka-kun does it too and very well.
Long Riders has the same feel as K-On!, juz with bicycles instead of a band. Characterization almost mirrors well: both have long-haired shoujos, tsun-ish shoujos, demure-ish shoujos, genki-ish shoujos, yep. Best of all, both have main leads who are ditsy and clueless, brimming with passion on what they get fond of, both even have reliable imoutos.
If you're into overflowing with cutesy and diabeetus, then these shows are for you.
Teekyuu has a similar setup as K-On!, only with Tennis instead of music. Teekyuu is also...a bit more random.
A Yui and Kanae are pretty much the same character, except Kanae is a bit more stupid.
Also, Yui is the same as Azu-nyan.
Both are really crazy slice of life shows with cute girls. The only difference is that Joshiraku's focus is not on music, though it doesn't really focus on rakugo too, it's just kind of a context for the show, and maybe this one, specially in its first four episodes, it's crazier and more self-aware than K-ON, and it's not as cute either, but it has really good designs, specially with how J.C. Staff went all out to animate it.
Both shows are a about a group of young girls that come together starting as strangers then become a close tightknit group of friends with each of their own quirky personalities that contrast and compliment each other.
It is basically the same thing just without a soul eater flare to it. There is no over arcing plot. Just a group of cute moe girls doing whatever each episode. If Soul Eater Not was made the same time K-ON was made, it would have been very popular but it's not. And to be honest it feels out of place with the rest of line in the spring season. But as I digress, if you really like Soul Eater Not then K-On is right for you and vice versa
Minami Kamakura has the same formula as K-On, in terms of moe-girls in CGDCT daily-living, and doing club stuffs; juz that K-On is on light music and its theme as well, whilst this anime has cycling.
The charm is that, both shows utilises real-life brands:
K-On! has Fender, Gibson, Yamaha, and Korg showcased on the show; while Minami Kamakura has like, Cannondale featured, for example.
Regrettably though, Minami Kamakura was made by JC Staff, who didn't seem to know what they were doing. Thus, what you might have expected on this anime about cycling, wasn't all focused as much as it could have (like, what hybrids, mountain bikes, or road bikes are; you know, cycling elements since K-On did manage to impart some music instrument stuffs like Yui's Les Paul; or Azusa's Mustang). read more
If you ever liked music, or musical anime drives you.. OR MUSIC FEELS is what you are looking for.. then I think K-ON delivers these feels the same way ShiUso did.. Both anime have music as catalyst for enjoyment even tho they have different stories. It's just, I have both their tracks in my playlist all the time.
Atmospheric pieces with the same delicate attention to detail. A cheery mood, lighthearted tone shrouds both these slice-of-life-like stories of a group of girls, aided by school settings intimately brought to life. They are slow-paced, rather understated coming-of-age tales with a mysterious charm about them. For what they lack in big drama, they make up in a more distanced, mature style that in retrospect is just as valuable as any melodrama. Awesome shows.
In both anime; K-On! and Ansatsu Kyoushitsu, the main protagonists are generally high school students and a majority of the scenes are in school. The teacher(s) in both anime show very close relations with their students and help them aspire to become more proficient in their interests and goals in the anime.
Yuuki Yuuna wa Yuusha de Aru and K-On! are both anime featuring 4, and later 5, girls, and involve a school club. While Yuuki Yuuna is more serious than K-On! and is a magical girl anime while K-On! is a music anime, they are both anime that tell the story of a group of girls growing closer.
K-On and Slow Start are both works about friend's influence over one's own life, and use their directing and writing for the primary purpose of making the viewer feel the warmth and purity of the protagonist's bonds.
The characterization in K-On is much more subtle and nuanced than Slow Start, which is fairly overt in every element; from the moment the cheery opening plays, with its bright, pastel visuals, the show's intentions are obvious, however, this does not prevent, and in fact, assists in, conveying strong themes and emotions.
Okay, I know what you're going to say: "How these two anime are similar?!". But, there are several facts that explain their similarity. First of all, this season FLCL and K-ON tells us about four girls who gradually grow both physically and mentally. Also, to the emergence of something/someone, they lived ordinary lives, but after they met their life changed in a different direction.
One is about a band, one is about a group of gamers, and neither of them do much playing.
One is pure moe, the other is a romcom to the core, and neither of them do much plot progression.
They're genuinely enjoyable to watch, regardless of if the initial concept is pretty misleading on how the rest of the anime will go.
K-ON! is in my opinion the original Love Live. Both feature cute girls doing cute things, friendship and trying to be in a band/idol group. It's K-ON, and if you're new to anime and just so happened to miss out on the original then be sure to check it out.
I know that this rec could seem strange since it seems that K-on and Jojo are in complete opposition, but I still cannot think about one without thinking about the other and here is why :
- In both you follow a group of friend in their everyday lives. Jojo SC1 has a lot of slice of life moments (that makes everybody say it's boring while I greatly enjoyed it), you see the lifes of the 5 guys of the group doing their activity : that is travelling and fighting. In K-On you see the girls in the music club having fun. In both sides, there are slice of life moments.
- There are also many elements of comedy in both : JojoSC1 is way more comedy-oriented than the other Jojo parts. K-on is basically a comedy
- Both titles features in majority a group of people of the same sex (girls in K-on, boys in Jojo) with exagerated expression (moe in K-on, GAR in Jojo)
- Lastly, the more important in my opinion, I enjoyed both series in the same way : I wasn't just watching friends having fun or travelling, I felt like I was literally taking part of their group. I was living an adventure in Jojo, I was having fun in K-on
I know this recommandation is strange, but if you liked one, there is no reason to dislike the other since they share SoL and Comedy, without romance (the Action in Jojo SC1 or the school setting in K-on can turn down at first but it is greatly enjoyable nonetheless.
Also both have a lot of memes on the Internet read more
No, K-On is not yuri, however if you like the art style of Sakura Trick, you will like the art style of K-On, because they share the SAME art style. I saw a bit of K-ON and wondered why the art style looked so similar, because I already seen it.
On other notes, both anime have a light hearted comedy feeling to it, K-On obviously missing the romance. Art style is just so cute through!
The story starts as the Main Character enters a new school year. Both shows almost has the same personality with each character-- Renge as Yui, Natsumi as Ritsu, Hotaru as Mugi, and Komari as Mio. Every episodes of these series can be considered as a stress reliever that later ends into a very heartwarming feeling. The plot tackles about the cast's daily life which gradually strengthen their friendship and bond with each other. So, to sum things up, both shows is definitely not a waste of time to watch.
gdgd Fairies really is a one of a kind anime and so finding a similar show is difficult. I'd say the main appeal of gdgd though is the conversations between the three primary girls that take place. Based on this I'd say K-ON! could be a good alternative as this is also primarily driven by the conversations made by the female cast, although with K-ON! it is 4 girls which later grows to 5. The humour differs a fair bit but the overall tone in both is light-hearted and fun.
Both are moe anime that are funny. Both characters are really cute and the characters have a wide variety of personalities, from the crazy/insane Ritsu/Mitsuba, to the silent/moe Mio/Hitoha. There are other teachers involved in the craziness, especially Yabe/Sawako.
BEWARE: Mitsudomoe is MUCH, MUCH stranger than K-ON.
Both made by Kyoto Animation and has a high school setting.
K-On is focused on light music club, drinking tea, eating cake, having a fun time being less serious and more "Moe"
Hibike! Euphonium is focused on brass band music , more "mature" and serious while keeping a certain cuteness of its own.
In both animes the characters form a band in the school, and discover there their passion for music (in Utapri is more evident even before they form the band, but with time this starts getting more and more clear). And the most important thing: amazing songs!
Both K-on and Saki are about school clubs as well as the characters lives both in and out of school. The shows also have many yuri/shoujo ai undertone moments in them, since both casts are mostly all female.
Another anime revolving around cuteness done right. Moe characters, humor based on situations that are both funny and cute at the same time. Great as a way to boost your spirits when feeling drab or tired.
A lot of resemblance to the art and the characters personalities. Although both animes give totally different vibes than each other, if you enjoy the characters of this show then you probably will enjoy K-Ons characters..
Mio's voice actor (Yōko Hikasa) voices a character which visually looks similar and sounds identical! You'll get a real kick from imagining a perverted version of Mio in crazy situations. Also for back up Ritsu's voice actor (Satomi Satou) voices her best friend, though she doesnt really sound like Ritsu in this.
I recommend these two anime series together due to their cute and "moe" nature, and also because they are not ecchi at all. They are both innocent enough for children and hardcore feminists(like myself) to watch and not be offended or scarred for life. Both are essentially a group of cute girls doing what they do in life.
On anime focuses on music, the other in manga, but both have somethings in common, like determination, passion and talent in their respective art, though one of the girls in K-on didn't learn how to play the guitar until later on.
The similarities of these 2 animes are they have music,in Mermaid Melody they gonna save the sea from the sea demons while in K-on they have to save there club from being disband....Yui and Luchia are likely the same beacuse they are both clumsy...and the musics of K-on is very awesome and there last music Graduation Is Not The End makes me cry....that song is for Azu-Nyan....
The only real similiarity between the two is that they both has a group of cute high school girls. Don't watch them right after each other. Why? All the female characters are sweet that you will get an insulin rush!!
Oh!! and neither have major storylines. They are both fun to watch and enjoy. If you want something deep, neither of these will do it for you.
Yama no Susume and K-On are both slice-of-life anime surrounding the lives of a number of cute girls and their hobbies of some sort, Yama no Susume being hiking and K-On's being music. They also just aren't random skits like a good amount of slice-of-life shows, but actually have a little plot and a small amount of character development. Yama no Susume has short episodes though while K-On is a full-length show.
Yes i know k-on has no supernatural.
Both shows have a group of cute girls doing mundane things, yet at the same time they both deal with personal hardships and undergo character development. They both have a sensei mentor that helps them. They're both irresistibly cute.
Both shows are about personal growth. They're not particularly plot heavy, yet have a continuous narrative that shows how much the characters have changed.
K-on! also has the theme of school club formation: the protagonists live the club at all times that are in school and we follow the daily life of them from the creation of the club, just like in Anime-Gataris.
When I first saw Yui, I thought it's Yurie.They are pretty similar , both are shy,clumsy, but motivated girls. And just as from Yurie everyone espected much, the same was from Yui, from the music club members..Even if the series are defferent , the ideea is the same in my opinion.
Both are about cute moe girls that are dedicated to accomplishing something (Publishing a manga magazine, forming a light music club, etc.) The characters and humor is similar too. Mangirl progresses at a lightning fast pace though, since each episode is only 3 minutes long.
4 girls-Best friends(K-on!, Azusa is excluded from this recommendation :P)
1. K-on! and Milky Holmes is mainly on the fun and laughter the 4 friends bring, but not the main thing that brings them together.(K-on!-Light Music Club, Milky Holmes-Academy and good friends as detectives) They display similar character traits, like Mio-Herc(Elly), Yui-Sherlock(Sheryl), Ritsu-Nero, Mugi-Cordelia. More on friendship than main theme.
Both series has cute girls in a group that follows more of a slice of life story telling rather than a direct/linear story.
The girls in both series are considered best friends and live their school life at their fullest every day. They have fun through various activities whether it's for entertainment, random, or just something to pass time by.
Both about bands starting up with a couple good friends. Kaikan Phrase is darker than K-on but goes a lot more into the music.The band in Kaikan Phrase is also serious about being a band as a profession rather than just a high school club.
Both anime's sertting taken place at school and the characters are both in a Club & eat snack all the time.......cheerful character with awesome art.
But k on is more of a music & comedy with 0 romance and senkyo is more of romance, harem & drama kind of anime
K-on! And Yuru Yuri♪♪ are both very energetic animes, something that you would both watch and feel a fat off smile after each episode. The reason why I would recommend watching K-on! Is because they both have the same sorta building blocks as each other. They both contain cute little girls, and both about their daily lives, which are situated around their highschool club. However the main difference would be is that K-on! Is more solely based around achieving a certain goal, whereas Yuru Yuri♪♪ tries to become more funny rather than focusing a big plot.
