I'm gonna have to go ahead and recommend Nichijou. It's slowly becoming a classic, at least in my mind.

24e60f92 No.1645

I watched about half of Nichijou ~3 years ago and liked it, but haven't gotten around to finishing it.

468c40b4 No.1646

Nichijou was an instant classic imo. It's a shame it flopped in Japan.
At we finally got the BD release after …5 years?

5ed910e7 No.1651

Nichijou to my mind works better as an anime than a manga. But I just couldn't really warm up to it, mostly because I just didn't like Yuuko or Mio. If it had just been about Nano, the Professor and Sakamoto, I might have liked it better.

if you're looking for something really funny, weird, with a surprisingly huge amount of heart - like azumanga, though a lot more surreal - jungle wa itsumo hare nochi guu is a classic that people don't seem to talk about these days.

hare and guu's relationship is a bit like mai and yukko in nichijou so if you enjoyed mai brutally trolling yukko you'll like this.

also dr. slump is kind of the OG, akira toriyama's big series before dragon ball. where dragon ball is half action half silliness, dr. slump is all silliness.

In terms of high school comedy I highly recommend School Rumble. It's got a love dodecahedron romance element to it as well.

Sweetness and Lightning.
It has a lot of Yotsuba vibes.

468c40b4 No.1657

True. It shows more realistic relationship between a single father and kid. Also, a lot of cooking. Still cute. There's even a high school girl shoehorned in for the MC (not as thicc as Fuuka tho).
Guuuuuuh… The romance in that series is such bullshit. I gave it a chance when it first aired but once I realized it was going to be …what, 50 episodes? Dozens of episodes of horny AND dumb characters playing grab-ass, I said 'fuck that.'
Glad it's mostly forgotten.

Granted Tenma's interest in Karasuma was a little strange, and Imadori was a horndog, it was mostly innocent and played up for laughs rather than to be overtly sexy, at least in my view.

I'm sorry but I just want to FLOOF that hair! It's so fluffy.

I like Kill Me Baby. It's more cartoony than something like Nichijou but it's still good fun. Daily Lives of High School Boys is also nice.

Flying Witch. But more than the anime I would actually recommend the manga. Not because the anime is bad, but because the manga in some way feels a lot like Yotsubato, to the point that I'm pretty sure that Azuma Kiyohiko was a major influence on Ishizuka Chihiro.
The way the backgrounds are drawn (though they're not quite as refined), the panelling and timing, the use of "mood" over symbols to convey emotional states, that sort of thing.

b1183014 No.1931

I actually remember people comparing Yotsuba to that series as far as moods, so I'd second that rec.
I also want to rec Kemono Friends. It looks like shit, but it's …very sweet like the sweet moments seen in both AzuDai and Yots imo.

Sketchbook is the closest thing I've found to having that hard-to-define AzuDai feeling

An anime adaptation of Mitsuboshi Colors began airing on 7 January 2018. Comparisons to Ichigo Marshmallow are immediately apparent; the voice of Sacchan is very similar to that of Miu.

6220e535 No.2137

One description I read is that it's a series of three Yotsubas.
The character designs definitely remind me of IM.

6f512f1c No.2305

I've been meaning to watch this since it started airing, finally got around to it this weekend.
Definitely a lot like IM, but the cuteness seems more distilled and refined, it's almost too much at times.

dbf2cdd8 No.2596

Although not quite the same as Sketchbook outside of the general 'art' theme, Hidamari Sketch and GA Geijutsuka Art Design Class might also be worth a watch as high school comedies

Man, how did I miss this when it aired. Ticks pretty much every box.
I never really put Sketchbook in the same category as AzuDai but now that I think about it, it really is in the same vein, just more like it's played at 1/4 speed.

31d53966 No.2711

I remember someone posting a sliding scale of comedy to slice of life many, many years ago. Both shows fit on it neatly, if not in the same place

I recommend Soremachi, the characters are very enjoyable and hotori is a mixture of tomo and fuuka. also, it's SHAFT at it's best
I might be 4 years late, but I need to let you know you have absolute horrible taste and yukko is best girl

I forgot this thread existed.
I'll take the chance and remind people to read Yokohama Shopping Trip.

I don't know how to explain it, but looking at that little creature makes me kinda sad.

It's a pretty relaxing anime, would recommend. It's a good palette cleanser.

I had the BD for this sitting on my shelf for like 3 years before I watched it. I'm a sucker for most things SHAFT, so I don't know how I missed it, but it was good fun.

Seconding, with the caveat that I think the manga is better to the point that it stands to rival Yostuba.

In the genre of "single father", I thought Kakushigoto was pretty good. I will say that a lot of the references to other manga artists went over my head, not being up on all that, but that didn't detract from the anime or manga.

The author of Sweetness and Lightning has a new series out called "Otonari ni Ginga" or "A Galaxy Next Door" which started last year.
It's probably being scanlated (haven't looked) but there's an official English translation coming out next year. Looks interesting.

>Otonari ni Ginga
Apparently there's an anime coming out next year: https://myanimelist.net/anime/51705/Otonari_ni_Ginga
I just started reading it a few days ago, seems interesting but I'm only a couple chapters in.
