My Senpai Is Annoying is an anime series by Doga Kobo. A studio known for their
Comedy as well.
This anime is about Igarashi, a girl who’s relatively new at a sales company. She’s 23 years old and is smaller than most people her age.
Her senpai at work is tall as F and in her own words, treats her like a child when praising or patting her on the head.
If you want:
And a chilled anime in a similar environment or style, this is the one to watch matey.
Here’s a list.
Working!!! has a similar format but it’s slightly different. The main character: Taneshima works at a family restaraunt. Like Igarashi, she’s on the “smaller” side.
This is an insecurity for Taneshima, but not to an extreme.
The anime focuses on her and other colleagues while at work in a
There’s hints of
2. Uzaki Chan Wants To Hang Out
Uzaki Chan is an
You can expect fan service here though, which is a major highlight.
Hana Uzaki wants to hangout with Senpai, but he’s an introvert and would rather be doing his own thing instead of being pestered 24/7.
Uzaki is annoying because of her persistence, but she secretly likes him. Though that barrier starts to break a bit as the anime flies by.
It’s the gender opposite to My Senpai Is Annoying, but not as clean.
3. Love Is Hard For Otaku
Love Is Hard For Otaku, or Wotakoi is about Narumi. She’s a girl in her early 20’s who complains about her past relationships.
She wants a type of man that according to her, is “her type”. Hirotaka, the other MC happens to be working at the same new company as Narumi.
They’re childhood friends and they surprisingly end up in a relationship despite Narumi’s reluctance… Because of her fantasy boyfriend she’s dead set on having.
If you wanna see soft
It’s rom com for Otaku’s in a nutshell. Sometimes in a professional setting (at work).
Girls Nozaki Kun
Chiyo Sakura, the orange haired girl has a thing for Nozaki Kun. He’s so dense he hasn’t noticed, but Chiyo isn’t the most direct about it either.
Chiyo doesn’t get into an actual relationship with Nozaki Kun by the end of it, but the anime’s funny enough that it doesn’t matter.
That’s part of the point.
Nozaki in particular is a
Underrated comedy series which is also made by Doga Kobo!
5. Blend S
Maika-Chan is a new employee at a cafe that does things a little differently. The manager of the cafe is called DINO.
He’s a guy that means well and is one of the reasons Blend S is one of the funniest anime I’ve seen.
Each female employee plays a role:
Similar to a maid cafe, they’re role playing for their customers. Maika plays a sadistic role because she awkwardly gives people the wrong impression, which works to the managers advantage.
Misunderstandings, foolishness, dumb sh*t and wholesomeness. Blend S has it all, and it’s a short series.
6. Maid Sama
Maid Sama is not as similar than most comparable anime on this list. It’s Shoujo after all, but it is
Misaki Ayuzawa is a masculine girl with a feminine look. She’s a man-hating feminist in the early stages of the series.
As student council president she favors
Her hatred comes from family issues.
Usui Takumi, the love interest, is the guy who starts out being annoying to Misaki, and then ends up the guy she falls for.
He opens her eyes to what’s happening around her, her behavior, attitude, and more. This is the source of the changes she goes through later.
7. Squid Girl
Squid Girl is about a girl from the sea who looks human, but her hair works like a Squid’s tentacles.
She’s supernaturally powerful. But her goals to conquer humanity end when she damages the building of The Lemon Beach House.
As insurance, she’s forced to work there to make back the money for property damage.
This is one of the few anime to be based by the BEACH and not be a
Clever dialogue as well, especially in the dubbed version which I think is better.
8. Engaged To The Unidentified
Kobeni Yonomori is 16 years old. She’s being forced to marry into the Mitsumine family without warning.
The man she’s to marry is called Hakuya, around the same age as Kobeni. So the anime sets the stage for the
There’s no supernatural tag but there IS supernatural elements to this anime, even if slight.
Being made by Doga Kobo as well, the art style,
9. Denki Gai
Denki Gai is another Doga Kobo anime series.
It’s about people who work at a manga, distributing it, and more.
Manga is their lives, and it shows in what they get up to, talk about, or even try to “hide” (closet otaku).
It does have its moments, but the earlier episodes of Denki Gai can get a bit weird and even extreme. Ethically.
Either way it’s relevant for this list so it has to be mentioned.
