Bunny Girl is basically a less verbose version of Bakemonogatari, complete with the anthology setup of the main guy, who comes off as a sarcastic prick but is secretly super nice, helps the waifu of the week come to terms with her social anxieties and hangups that supernaturally manifest in very literal ways. The snappy dialogue and instant chemistry between the leads makes both shows a very fun watch, but Bunny Girl is much more accessible.
Bunny Girl Senpai is to Bakemonogatari what cold pizza is to pizza. While being a lot less verbose it explores the same kind of narative.
-Female lead with a sharp tongue.
-Male Lead seems like a normal guy but is secretly quite weird himself and also quite special.
-Both deal with anomalies in an otherwise normal world. Puberty Syndrome in Seibu, oddities in Monogatari.
-Number of other girls appear but the main relationship is straightforward and doesn't get derailed.
-Very fun to watch, good anime.
"Aobuta" shares many similarities with the Monogatari Series.
The story is about a high school boy meeting different girls with supernatural phenomenon and helping them solve their problems.
The main character seems unsocial and his classmates always misunderstand him. But actually he is a straightforward boy, and willing to help people around him.
The heroine is a pretty and cool girl with long black hair. She has a bit of sadism and sharp tougue, and often plays tricks on the main character.
MC dealing with main heroine's problem in the first arc and helping another girl in next arcs. MC and main heroine's relationship in both series are similar.
The female characters are almost copy and paste of each other with slightly different personalities. Both series are enjoyable to to watch with interesting protagonist
Very similar in terms of plot and characters. The main guy helps other girls who suffer from a supernatural phenomenon and of course, some of them fall in love with him. The main couples are also very similar in both shows.
- Both shows are Drama/RomComs with supernatural elements where the MC tries to fix other characters problems.
- Also in both anime the main romantic relationship is established very early on.
Both focus around paranormal/supernatural occurrences.
Female and Male MC's strongly resemble each other
Male MC finds the need to save others from these supernatural occurrences
Initial Arc establishes relationship between lead male and female
Character driven series
Central theme of both stories is very similar (MC helping girls with their sobrenatural problems) And the relationship between both partners, is very similar.
For once there is actually a show that is similar to Monogatari. Both shows involve the MC dealing with supernatural problems involving a wide range of girls. In both shows, while there's a main love interest that spans the series, there are small elements of harems for the MC's.
Both shows also have unique interactions between the characters and contain ample amounts of witty humor
If you didn't like Bakemonogatari for it being verbose, flashy, or unconventional but still enjoyed some of the themes used than Bunny Girl Senpai might be for you. Bakemonogatari will give you more memorable characters and is all-around better written but if you are looking for something more simple then Bunny Girl is the way.
A shameless yet selfless high school boy encounters several girls dealing with supernatural ailments and tries to help them in several distinct arcs. Sakuta and Koyomi are extremely similar as are Mai and Hitagi. Basically, the setup, structure, and characters have strong parallels. They’re both really good too.
Both stories follow a Male lead trying to help a bunch of girls with their problems related to the unnatural
Both try to explore problems that people face via more literal supernatural elements (spirits in Monogatari and adolecense syndrome in Seishun Buta Yarou). Where Bake more focuses on interal conflicts and problems relating to themselves, Seishun Buta Yarou focuses on an individual's interactions and place within a societal context (and then by proxy, how it affects them). Both however, are still good in both rights. There are also other small similarites that a fan of one can recognise in the other but they both still feel like fresh and interesting series in their own ways.
Both shows have a note of the supernatural things, that happening around main characters: the hero of this story is still a high school student, who meets a girl with supernatural phenomenon and helping her to solve a problem. Also, main heroine has a personality of "tsundere": sometimes, she can be angry to protagonist and even rude him, but on the other hand, she loves him and feel safety with MC.
Besides it, in both animes slip philosophical and scientific thoughts.
The story lines are very similar and equally interesting! The main character seems to be a pushover when in reality he has a righteous attitude towards helping others in need. They both walk the line between supernatural and reality; the character's emotions manipulate the world at large through themes of physics and spirituality. The themes are also very philosophical and every episode of Bunny Girl leaves me wondering about how I perceive my world, just like the Bakemonogatari series did. Mild fanservice too! I absolutely recommend both anime.
Bunny Girl is a rip off except
Generic art style
less of Shaft's spice
easier to consume
slightly more cliche
BUT STILL GOOD!
Self aware deadpan boy highschooler meets long hair self aware girl during a supernatural moment. Girl tells boy to not tell anyone he saw her.
He helps girls with their personal mental problems that manifest into something supernatural. He helps girls only for his harem.
There is a glasses clad girl who knows everything that can help the mc on any supernatural problem.
There is a girl who really has a crush on the mc.
There is a girl who is somehow the
Both shows have one main male protagonist with many female characters surrounding him, but what makes both of these shows great is how they both are not harems. The females in both shows actually have characteristics and are not boring. Also not all of them are falling over romantic for the male protagonist.
Both shows character develop their main male protagonist as well as the females very well.
- Set in modern day with some supernatural elements
- Cast of mostly female characters around the highschool age
- Protagonist that seems like a normal guy, but has some secrets of his own and helps the girls deal with their supernatural problems
- Main girl with a sharp tongue and terrible mother
- Lots of banter
- Straightforward relationship with no misunderstandings or other cliches
Male lead cool
Kuudere male lead
Both animes have a similar concept of helping girls who are having problems with supernatural stuff. Also the main male leads are very similar to each other. Both animes also have a bit of mystery that makes you very curious and makes you want to follow it. So, If you like one of them, theres a high chance that you would love the other.
Bunny Girl Senpai is Bakemonogatari without supernatural overload and less harem situations. Bakemonogatari graphic is better, but in Bunny Girl Senpai characyer are more believable (and nicer IMO).
Seishun Buta Yarou wa Bunny Girl Senpai no Yume wo Minai is basically Bakemonogatari but worse. I find the characters, their interactions, the humour, the visuals, the drama, the plot (from what I remember from the manga), the art, sound and basically anything else to be better in Monogatari. If you enjoyed this, Bakemonogatari should blow your mind. On the other hand, Bunny Girl does have a more down to earth feel and is better for people who don't get Bake's humour.
Both Bunny Girl Senpai and Bakemonogatari share a similar concept where the mc helps out several girls who are experiencing a supernatural phenomenon. The dynamic between the mc and their main love interest in both anime are extremely similar, so if you like the banter then you should definitely check out Bakemonogatari, and all the other seasons in the series.
