9 Anime Like A Galaxy Next Door (Recommended)

A Galaxy Next Door is an anime series about manga. Kuga Ichirou is a shoujo manga artist who lives off his royalties from his work after the death of his parents.

His dad left him with apartment buildings so that pays the bills as well. Though he has to take care of his little brother and sister on top.

With all this pressure, he’s in need of an assistant, and that “dream” assistant called Goshiki is everything he could ever need. She was in fact inspired by his work, and that’s how the two ended up meeting.

There’s also a fantasy element to this anime, which is revealed at the end of episode 1.

Here’s a list of diabetes anime just like A Galaxy Next Door to start watching.


1. The Angel Next Door Spoils Me Rotten

Last season’s anime is full of diabetes, sweetness, wholesomeness, and enough sugar to put you in a coma.

It’s one of the best slice of life of 2023.

Shiina Mahiru is the main female MC who’s seen sitting on a swing outside in bad weather. Fujimiya gives her an umbrella, and this is their first major interaction.

They happen to live next door to each other. After seeing Fujimiya’s messy home, not before making him food as thanks for the day before, Shiina tidies up his property and hoovers.

This is where the romance and their relationship slowly blossoms and becomes a wife/husband sort of situation.

In school, Shiina is referred to as “angel” because of her outward personality and character.


2. Tonikaku KAWAII

This diabetes anime series now has a 2nd season airing during the spring season and will be the main highlight for sweet romantic vibes this time around.

In the beginning, you have an Isekai-like situation where Nasa is run over by a truck, but he doesn’t die. He’s miraculously healed, seemingly by Tsukasa, the redhead, and their interaction begins from there.

One day she returns, knocking on his door, and the two get married. Prior, Nasa asked for it, and that’s how it panned out.

The anime is a depiction of their lives living together, but in a more wholesome and realistic way (ignoring the setup) compared to similar shows.


3. The Helpful Fox Senko San

Senko San is a god Goddess who comes from the so-called heavens, finds a depressed man, and dedicates her time to healing him from his depression. Enhancing his life as a result.

Goddesses like Senko specifically help humans who are suffering severely.

Expect wholesome episodes, chilled vibes, fluffy characters, and a mood that will relax you so much you might fall asleep.

It has a lot of similarities to A Galaxy Next Door.


4. My Dress Up Darling

One of the biggest, best, and most wholesome romance/slice of life shows of 2022. It even was bigger than Attack On Titan during the time both series were airing.

Marin Kitagawa is an Otaku who doesn’t take disrespect for her hobby lightly. She’s a gentle soul, open-minded, doesn’t judge people without understanding, and is the type of chill person you’d want in your circle.

She has a passion for cosplay. The male MC, Gojo, runs a business selling dolls with his grandfather. The two meet and essentially help each other’s passions based on what they can help each other with, and their relationship forms from there.


5. My Bride Is A Mermaid

Nagasumi Michishio is a regular guy who almost rounds to death, is saved by a literal mermaid, and then is forced to abide by their customs. One custom is being killed if a human ever sees a mermaid.

The other option is to marry, and that’s what both Nagasumi and Sun Seto decide to do, even though her father is pissed off about it. And some of their family who happens to be Yakuza and gangsters.

This series is a parody so you’re not gonna get the exact same vibes as A Galaxy Next Door or similar anime. But the anime definitely is wholesome, relaxed, just with the strong doses of comedy, ridiculousness, and supernatural/fantasy elements.


6. Maou Yuusha

Maou Yuusha is an anime between a demon king woman (Maou) and Yuusha, the hero. They join together to make the world and their country a better place for everyone.

Economics, finance, business, planning, foresight, and agriculture – these are all elements of Maou Yuusha, with the romance of the main characters also being a highlight.

The anime is only 1 season.


7. Spice And Wolf

With a new season/project announced, a new anime for this will and may be out around 2023/2024.

Holo The Wise Wolf is the fox girl who can transform into a wolf or remain in a human form. Kraft Lawrence is a businessman and stock investor who travels and makes his money as a merchant.

The two meet and pair up together. The setting of this anime is historic, old school, traditional, and far back into the past with barns, hay, grass, old types of building structures, and more being a common sight.

The content of this anime between the two characters is what people love the most.


8. Clannad

There’s Clannad, the first season where the characters are mostly in school, and romance slowly falls into place between Tomoya and Nagisa (image above).

Then there’s Clannad After Story, season 2, where things progress, characters are older, and tragedy strikes like very few anime could ever compare to.

Either anime is a lot like A Galaxy Next Door and deserves to be watched.

There are odd moments of fantasy/supernatural events in a parallel universe which is connected to the main world (like A Galaxy Next Door), and it’s all explained the further you get into the series.


9. Shikimori’s Not Just A Cutie

Shikimoris Not Just A Cutie cute couple | https://animemotivation.com/anime-like-a-galaxy-next-door/

Shikimori’s Not Just A Cutie is a rare series where the main characters are already in a romantic relationship the moment it begins, so there’s nothing exaggerated, out of the blue, random, or sudden that brings it together.

In fact, the anime depicts Izumi and Shikimori’s relationship in a way that’s realistic aside from the trope of Izumi’s common misfortunes and “accidents” that Shikimori saves him from.

This is a double-edged sword. It’s partly why the anime lacks serious potential, but it’s still similar to A Galaxy Next Door and it odes have its merits.
