Legend of Lemnear is a fantasy manga illustrated by Urushihara Satoshi and Yoshimoto Kinji (who contributed with the story). It was serialized from 1991 till 1992 and adapts the OVA with the same name from 1989. The story is stretched out so that the fans would enjoy more Lemnear, but it works for manga readers-only too. Structured into 18 chapters, fit into 3 volumes, all resulting in a complete story. (It's a bit different than the OVA).

The term "Swords and Sorcery" describes the manga best, we have action, magic, a medieval-like world, evil slave traders and brave knights who fight monsters. You could imagine this read more

Doujin Work is a manga written by Hiroyuki (Aho Girl, Mangaka-san to Assistant-san to) between 2004-2008, it has a total of 76 short chapters compiled into 6 volumes (the last volume is a spin-off, the usual main characters don't appear). You're in it for a bizarre insane comedy here like all Hiroyuki's manga, even though this one was his first serialization.

The story is about a girl named Osana Najimi, a high school girl, who wants to draw comics and sell it at doujin markets in order to make money and live the good life, and her weird friends. Let's not fool ourselves, it is not read more

Sanjin Sadou is a supernatural manga written between 2002-2004 by Mizukami Satoshi (Hoshi no Samidare, Spirit Circle, Sengoku Youko), it consists of 2 volumes of short chapters (about 15 pages each). It's the author's first serialization.

The manga follows a guy in his 20s or early 30s named Sadou Kokugetsu Shinkun Fubuki (but almost everyone call him Fubuki) who has weak supernatural powers and helps people that have these sort of problems, he gets payed of course, but only with junk and few money. It's the most basic of premises, throw in a cute bespectacled girl and we have the story of Sanjin Sadou. Let's not read more

This short 30 pages manga is a spinoff based on another work by Hiroyuki (Aho Girl), not that is does matter, in the span of 10 minutes or so, the reader is bombarded with:
- absurd comedy
- surreal comedy
- sexual comedy
That's it.

All in your face, if you like this type of humor, this doujin manga will make you laugh like crazy and craving for more, the characters don't matter, story doesn't matter, basically the all mighty "banana god" wants to make our cute angel girl do sexy and funny things with a dense annoying boy that she (for some reason) likes. Be prepared for explosions, talking read more

Angel Onayami Soudanjo is a manga written by Mizukami Satoshi (known better for Hoshi no Samidare, Sengoku Youko and Spirit Circle) between 2004-2006, it's from his early beginnings as a manga author and it's a light read, the manga being solely a comedy.
It's structured as 11 chapters (with an additional chapter 0 and chapter 0.5) in one single volume, it took me a little over an hour to read it, all chapters have 15 pages roughly, so it's pretty short and easy to read.

The story is very simple, as the synopsis tells you, there's an angel waiting on a bench in the park and if read more

Hoshi Neko Fullhouse (English: Star Cat Fullhouse) is a 4 episode OVA (Original Video Animation) series made by now defunct Studio Artland, which aired in late 1989. It was made to be a comedy SF set in space.

The story is very simple and in-your-face, it's about a guy named Yaoi Seitarou who's piloting a ship called the Green Goblin and his misadventures in space, that's it. You know this show will be a comedy from the first minutes of episode 1, when the robot Chiraku is telling a fun, somewhat dirty joke. If you laugh at the end of the joke, that means the show read more

High School! Kimengumi (Movie) is a 1986 comedy anime movie which aired in-between the main series (1985-1987), it is based on a popular Weekly Shounen Jump manga (1982-1987). Basically, the anime was so popular that they made a movie out of it with new material.

You don't have to watch the series or read the manga first to understand this movie, the main focus of Kimengumi is comedy, which is delivered in an episodic way. This, I reckon, would be a good intro to the main TV anime, it's a relatively short anime (just a 50 minutes watch) that gathers all of its charm to make read more
