Lastly, there is Ojou who is the more level headed out of the three, and does her best to keep the bond between them strong. While she can be an airhead at times, she acts with a kind heart toward everyone. Here are 6 anime that share a similar slice on life like Oshiete! Galko-Chan.

Similar Anime to Oshiete! Galko-Chan

1. Comical Psychosomatic Medicine

  • Episodes: 20
  • Aired: February 13, 2015– June 26, 2015

While the premise of both shows are very much the same, that is to provide humor while shedding light on the truth of our society, both shows shed light in different areas. Comical Psychosomatic Medicine focuses on the more medical side of things, going over issues relating to amnesia, and various other prevalent mental disorders that plague our society. Despite the seriousness behind it all, the anime takes a twist on it and uses humor and wit to further emphasize the point. Everything is served on a plate full of cheerful and comical tastes that will surely satisfy your palette. There are three characters much like the ones you'll find in Galko-Chan, where one is very straight to the point, the other airheaded, and one trying to bring everything together. It's a nice way to educate everyone on the more serious matters, while still maintaining an atmosphere that is catered to the anime world.

The two anime take place in two separate locations, but deliver the same message: Be more open minded about issues and be willing to lower your guard to discuss your feelings whenever necessary. It is like breaking the windows of insecurity and embracing the truth of humanity. We all go through the same thing, so why not just laugh a little and see where life takes us.

2. Lucky Star

  • Episodes: 24
  • Aired: April 8, 2007 – September 17, 2007

Lucky star shares a very similar style when it comes to crude humor while still educating us with something that resonates in our minds. Lucky star follows the lives of three girls in a high school setting, who rely on each other for guidance using crude and quirky humor to emphasize their points of view. The main character shares a common role much like Galko, where they both have this outer worldly state of mind, while being very open about their feelings in life. These conversations turn awkwardly hilarious as they mix in references from otaku and pop culture. While Galko tunes in more to the sexual realm of topics, lucky star tends to throw itself around in many directions while still maintaining its original meaning.

Galko and her friends spend a large chunk of time together, discussing topics on crude things such as pubic hair, and how smell can psychologically alter your feelings for someone. These oddly amusing topics are what really help sell the series, because it really helps to embrace our own inner child, but more importantly, to be open about various topics that would otherwise be considered uncomfortable. It teaches us that at the most basic level, we are after all just human, and that these topics should be discussed more frequently amongst our peers. There are topics where the two fall into place more frequently, and that is the topic of culinary. Galko really takes pride in her cooking, since her dream is to become the best mother in the future. In Lucky Star, Konata also fancys cooking and displays her passion by explaining how to eat various types of foods. The two are young but very mature at heart when it comes to pursuing their goals for their future.


3. Gokujo: Gokurakuin Joshikou Ryou Monotagari [Gokujo]

  • Episodes: 12
  • Aired: January 24, 2012 – March 27, 2012

So just when you thought Galko-Chan was full of sexual undertones, Gokujo seems to take it a next level further with almost every scene being more indecent over time. The story looks at three girls who are on a mission to discover themselves, while sharing stories of their sex appeal lifestyles. Aya tries to out perform her friends, but ends up looking like a complete weirdo as she tries to prove to them that her appeal is more alluring. It's extremely funny because of the fact that it becomes more of a competition between them, than a discussion of self improvement. Each character pulls the trigger and lets off a barrage of snide yet comical remarks that just make you want to burst out and laugh.

In Oshiete! Galko-Chan the premise is familiar. Both take place in a school environment with three girls trying to discover themselves throughout their high school experience. The sexual innuendo is very much there, but this time with a more lighthearted approach that teaches us to be more in tune with our bodies, and learn about how it works. What makes it so funny is how direct it is in the facts it elaborates on, while showing visual interpretations of what had been said from the perspective of each character. While not trying to spoil much from the series, there is a scene where the topic of smell floats in and each character is defined solely on their body fumes which is funny in every sense (no puns), because of how true it relates to actual reality and how we tend to judge others in that regard. Definitely check out both shows, as they truly will keep you smiling.

4. Shimoneta to Iu Gainen ga Sonzai Shinai Taikutsu na Sekai (Shimoneta: A Boring World Where the Concept of Dirty Jokes Doesn't Exist)

  • Episodes: 12
  • Aired: July 4, 2015– September 19, 2015

Comedy will never grow boring, just because there are just so many variances of comedy that stick out to so many people. From crude humor, to truth humor, comedy will always resonate inside our souls for all eternity. That now brings us to another very comical and crude anime called Shimoneta. The name is very long which is very funny in itself, since the meaning is a boring world where the concept of dirty jokes don't exist. You will find very much the opposite in this wonderful laughter filled anime, since the dirt is casted all over. Coarse language has been banned in the country along with indecent acts, and so Okuma enrolls into a school which focuses on public morals. He is then invited to an organization known as SOX, which then turns into a crazy and random journey full of obscene acts.

Both shows poke fun at censorship, and how it has effected the social mainframe of self expression. Galko and Ayame try to express that by using sexual references to futher elaborate on the basis of freedom, and humanity. Both main characters are determined to show the world around them that it is right to fight for what you believe in, despite what the majority might say. Fast forward to today, where social norms of this magnitude are still overlooked and ignored. Both anime do do their best to provide actual facts, and keep us entertained and educated. Galko approaches the matters more lightheartedly, while Ayame jumps right at you with direct shots. In the end, both demonstrate to the audience that it's important to discuss these issues together, and use humor to ease some of the tension that surround the topics.

5. Seitokai Yakuindomo (Student Council Staff Matters)

  • Episodes: 13
  • Aired: January 4, 2014 – March 30, 2014

You may see an ongoing trend here with our choices here on Honey's anime, in that most of these shows take place in high school. The core cast focuses around the perspectives of females, who love nothing more than spewing dirty jokes at one another while sharing some insight on the sexual positives of life. Seitokai Yakuindomo shows us the story of Tsuda, who finds herself in a gender integrated high school. While on her journey, she comes across various friends who then become a major influence in her life. The anime takes a lot of references from “Manzai” comedy in Japan, which is a traditional style of stand up comedy. The style incorporates the straight individual (Tsukkomi) and a funny airheaded character (boke) who trade jokes at each other. This takes the female approach, and adds in indecency to the mix, which is what brings out the intense humor.

In Galko-Chan, the tone remains, but in a more realistic and justified fashion. A lot of the jokes and crudeness found in Galko-Chan happen in situations where we wouldn't expect them to, which is what really sells the humor even more. The randomness and clever delivery is what gives Galko-Chan and Seitokai such a wonderful shine.


6. Minami-Ke

  • Episodes: 13
  • Aired: October 8, 2007 – December 31, 2007

The final series on our list is none other than Minami-Ke. This anime went under the radar for many people, since during its release, there were a handful of other anime that superseded it. That should not take away from the fantastic story and humor that this series has, since it will leave you laughing even after watching. Much like Galko-Chan where most episodes are cut into short segments to emphasize points of views, Minami-Ke takes it one step further by throwing in a lot of quirky behavior between the three sisters. They discuss topics on cooking and love confessions, but with such a weird approach that you end up laughing at how everything is explained.

What really sells this show is the fact that we can all relate to these characters, despite our genders. You can see that Haruka, Kana, and Chiaki are trying to explore themselves while telling us a humorous story about their crude and intimate adventures. It's something that we all have done in our youths, trying to figure out what certain parts of our bodies do, while laughing at it all because of how odd it is. Both shows imply that it is totally ok to be strange, because no matter what your true friends will always be there to share their obscure stories with you too. We highly recommend checking Minami-Ke for sure!


So that about wraps it up for our top 6 anime like Oshiete! Galko-Chan. Life and humor can share the same bed, because we cannot truly embrace the finer aspects of life without laughter. Oshiete! Galko-Chan expresses that, along with the 6 anime we recommended. If you have any other anime that you feel should make the list, be sure to let us know in the comments section down below!
