Minami-ke, Yuru Yuri Recommendations
Both are as similar as Facebook to Hi5, or Democrat to Republican.
The shows are brushed up with similar art-direction, almost pastel color choice, character design, pace, and genre.
The real example of style-parody. When someone say in easy English "the art is similar" this is what they mean, mostly because both shows share some staffs. Style-parody is not exactly a right word, they are officially sharing art-direction.
Genre similarity is also difficult to overlook. They are slice-of-life comedic show with heavy effort on showing the relationship of sub-character with the main cast (Minami family/ four main Yuruyuri girls.)
The original manga presents them both as a circle,
Same director.. similar feel, good humor.. a bit shoujo-ai theme but its not serious stuff.. mostly for comedy aspects.
Same director/screenwriter, similar feel.
Yuru Yuri is is what Minami-Ke would probably be like if Kana was an only child.
