10. Oshiete! Galko-chan (Please tell me! Galko-chan)

Oshiete! Galko-chan (Please tell me! Galko-chan)
Synopsis – Galko, Otako, Ojō are a “gal,” an otaku, and a proper lady, respectively, and are also good friends. The three high school girls with different perspectives discuss the kinds of secrets you can’t tell boys. No topic is too safe or too sensitive for them to joke about—even though every so often, Galko seems to get a bit embarrassed by their discussions!

Similarity – Fell in love with Maid Dragon slice of life, funny situations and really cute, adorable, amazing and unique characters? Then I’ll show you another show really similar: Oshiete Galko-chan! Although at first it may not seem like they’re alike at all, they both have the same humorous yet heartwarming vibe, present friendships really well and all stuff of the sorts. You won’t regret it.

9. Himouto! Umaru-chan

Himouto Umaru chanSynopsis – People are not always who they appear to be, as is the case with Umaru Doma, the perfect high school girl—that is until she gets home! Once the front door closes, the real fun begins. When she dons her hamster hoodie, she transforms from a refined, over-achieving student into a lazy, junk food-eating otaku, leaving all the housework to her responsible older brother Taihei. Whether she’s hanging out with her friends Nana Ebina and Kirie Motoba or competing with her self-proclaimed “rival” Sylphinford Tachibana, Umaru knows how to kick back and have some fun!

Similarity – Both of them have an extremely nonsensical plot with crazy characters with special abilities that ruin another character life attempt to live peacefully. They both have a great theme of family and togetherness and share a similar style of humor and storytelling.

8. Mikakunin de Shinkoukei (Engaged to the Unidentified)

Mikakunin de Shinkoukei (Engaged to the Unidentified)Synopsis – Just an ordinary teenager, Kobeni Yonomori receives quite the surprise on her 16th birthday—a fiancé and a sister-in-law she never even knew she had. As a result of an arrangement that her late grandfather made, Hakuya Mitsumine and his younger sister Mashiro have moved from their countryside home to the Yonomori household in order to deepen their relationship with their new family members.

Similarity – Both main characters are living with supernatural creatures
– Both anime are a slice of life comedy
– Both supernatural creatures are in love with the main character

7. Centaur no Nayami (A Centaur’s Life)

Centaur no Nayami (A Centaur's Life)Synopsis – Himeno is a sweet, shy little centaur girl. In her world, everyone seems to be a supernatural creature, and all her classmates have some kind of horns, wings, tails, halos, or another visible supernatural body part. Despite their supernatural elements, Himeno and her best friends, Nozomi and Kyouko, have a fun and mostly normal daily school life!

Similarity – Both are moe SOL with monster girls as a common trope. Highly recommend Centaur no Nayami if you’re into politics while still wanting some cute loli girls

6. Haiyore! Nyaruko-san (Nyaruko: Crawling With Love!)

Haiyore Nyaruko san (Nyaruko Crawling With Love)Synopsis – Mahiro Yasaka is just an ordinary high school student, until one day he is suddenly attacked by a dangerous monster. Just when everything seems to be lost, he is saved by a silver-haired girl named Nyaruko, who claims to be the shape-shifting deity Nyarlathotep from horror author H. P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos, sent by the Space Defense Agency to Earth. She explains to Mahiro that the creature chasing him was an alien called Nightgaunt, who had planned on abducting and selling him as a slave.

After rescuing him from the alien, the Lovecraftian deity falls madly in love with Mahiro and forces herself into his household, much to his chagrin. Moreover, they are soon joined by two others from the fictional universe: Cthuko, a girl obsessed with Nyaruko, and Hasuta, a young boy easily mistaken for a beautiful female. Together, the three eccentric aliens protect Mahiro from the various extraterrestrial dangers that threaten both his and Earth’s well-being, all the while making his life a living hell.

Similarity – Both shows have a main girl who decides to crash at a random stranger’s house and forces them to take her in so she can grow romantically close to a said stranger. A majority of the main cast are otherworldly beings( dragons and aliens ). They also feature many openly LGBT characters (but don’t cross over into full yuri/yaoi territory).

5. New Game!

New GameSynopsis – New Game! follows Aoba and the others on their adventure through the ups and downs of game making, from making the perfect character design to fixing all the errors that will inevitably accumulate in the process. Aoba Suzukaze graduates from high school and joins the Eaglejump game company. The person who made the game that Aoba loved as a grade-schooler just happens to be Aoba’s senior at the company.

Similarity – Sure, while in the case of ‘New Game!’ it was a new employee, and in ‘Kobayashi-san’ a giant, enamored dragon; either will entertain a slice-of-life fan as they enjoy a comedy soup with just a dash of drama. If you like mostly female casts, get ready to gradually explore them, their histories and their motivations one by one as you watch lesbian romances disguised as friendships blossom.

4. Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou (Monster Musume: Everyday Life with Monster Girls)

Monster Musume no Iru NichijouSynopsis – With his parents abroad, Kimihito Kurusu lived a quiet, unremarkable life alone until monster girls came crowding in! This alternate reality presents cutting-edge Japan, the first country to promote the integration of non-human species into society. After the incompetence of interspecies exchange coordinator Agent Smith leaves Kimihito as the homestay caretaker of a Lamia named Miia, the newly-minted “Darling” quickly attracts girls of various breeds, resulting in an ever-growing harem flush with eroticism and attraction.

Unfortunately for him and the ladies, sexual interactions between species are forbidden by the Interspecies Exchange Act! The only loophole is through an experimental marriage provision. Kimihito’s life becomes fraught with an abundance of creature-specific caveats and sensitive interspecies law as the passionate, affectionate, and lusty women hound his every move, seeking his romantic and sexual affections. With new species often appearing and events materializing out of thin air, where Kimihito and his harem go is anyone’s guess!

Similarity – Both are about supernatural/non-human characters living with a normal human protagonist. They also have a similar cutesy art style and tone, though Monster Musume is definitely more over-the-top in the Ecchi department.

3. Shinryaku! Ika Musume (The Squid Girl)

Shinryaku Ika Musume (The Squid Girl)Synopsis – Ika Musume has come out of her home in the ocean on a quest to punish humanity for polluting her waters. With squid tentacles for hair and some pretty useful ink-spitting skills, Ika Musume is sure she’ll have no trouble invading Earth. What she didn’t account for were the Aizawa sisters, rough and tumble Eiko and deceptively mellow Chizuru, who immediately bully her into working as a waitress in their seafood restaurant by the shore.

Ika Musume decides to take this chance to learn more about the human world, having silly adventures, meeting lots of strange characters, and never once letting world domination out of her sights. Will Ika Musume be able to exact her revenge on the human race that had wronged her? Or will she learn to enjoy the company of these foolish air-breathers and let bygones be bygones?

Similarity – Cute girls with superpowers find themselves doing cute things around town with puny humans. Ika certainly acts like she’s a civilization-destroying dragon but doesn’t show off as much power and everyone just accepts she has a weird head thing while Dragon Maid each new character has superpowers and is hiding. Both are great comedies and have a touching moment here or there.

2. Gabriel DropOut

Gabriel DropOutSynopsis – Gabriel DropOut follows these four friends’ comedic lives as they utterly fail to understand what it truly means to be a demon or an angel. Gabriel White graduated at the top of the class at angel school and attends a human school on earth in pursuit of knowledge, but then gets engrossed in a web game and decides its too much trouble to go anywhere

Similarity – Episodic narrative following cute characters doing cute things, with a slight fantasy twist to dynamics. One features cynical angels and demons with limited understanding of human social structure, the other cynical dragons with limited understanding of human social structure.

1. Nichijou – My Ordinary Life

Nichijou My Ordinary LifeSynopsis – Nichijou primarily focuses on the daily antics of a trio of childhood friends—high school girls Mio Naganohara, Yuuko Aioi and Mai Minakami—whose stories soon intertwine with the young genius Hakase Shinonome, her robot caretaker Nano, and their talking cat Sakamoto. With every passing day, the lives of these six, as well as of the many people around them, experience both the calms of normal life and the insanity of the absurd. Walking to school, being bitten by a talking crow, spending time with friends, and watching the principal suplex a deer: they are all in a day’s work in the extraordinary everyday lives of those in Nichijou.

Similarity – Nichijou and Kobayashi are both shows that give you a similar vibe in comedy. Nichijou is comedy focused where Kobayashi has some fantasy and more serious moments as well. Both shows are lighthearted and give you the same feeling and are animated by Kyoto Animation. If you have seen one or the other I would highly recommend the other to you. You’ll be in for a very comedic and character-driven story.
