6 Manga Like Aho Girl [Recommendations]

The best comedies are full of laughable idiots. By extension, perhaps having the most idiotic character makes a story even funnier. Mangaka Hiroyuki has penned works with many of these characters, beginning with the perverted Aito Yuuki from Mangaka-san to Assistant-san to. His next serialized work, Aho Girl, would transcend the very limits of stupidity itself. Hanabatake Yoshiko is, well, an idiot, to put it exceedingly mildly. Her only passion in life is eating bananas, giving her even more in common with modern apes than modern man. The only time she’s not stuffing her face with them is when she’s miserably failing to woo her childhood friend Akutsu Akuru. He is entirely fed up with her obscene antics, and his actions demonstrate this fact to the audience and almost everyone else but Yoshiko herself.

They say only fools fall in love, but there’s one side of this pair that’s more foolish than the other. The shenanigans that the pair gets into are amazing in and of themselves. It shows a lot of creativity as the “tsukkomi” Akuru tries his hardest to keep the “boke” Yoshiko in check. Today, we’re going to look at 6 other manga that are similar to Aho Girl. It might be hard to live up to such idiotic expectations, but these stories are sure to bring laughs all the same.

Similar Manga to Aho Girl

1. Fujimura-kun Mates

  • Mangaka: Shiki, Seiichi
  • Genre: Comedy, Harem, School
  • Volumes: 8
  • Published: Mar. 2009 – Jul. 2013

Having a bad reputation at school is no fun, but being a quiet loner who stays away from most interactions is always an option for most. Unfortunately, for Fujimaru Haru, his school has some of the oddest individuals of all time who are going to change his school life for the better, or so they say. One after another, strange girls keep approaching him to get him more involved at school. Usami Eriko, the class president of ANOTHER class, has set her sights on him, and she constantly gets a nosebleed at the thought of them becoming closer. Urabe Shizuru, the student council president, has decided to hold a schoolwide girlfriend hunt for Haru without even his own consent. And finally, there’s Yumizuka Subaru, a former delinquent, who was shown the error of her ways years ago by a younger Haru. These strange girls and a host of comedic relief characters aren’t about to let the straight-laced Fujimura Haru have a normal school life anytime soon.

While none of the girls are anywhere near the ludicrous levels of stupidity that Yoshiko reaches in Aho Girl, their combined efforts are far too much for a single main character to handle. Haru and Akuru both provide a no-nonsense protagonist perspective as they try to have a semblance of normality in their daily school lives. Both male leads have multiple romantic prospects thrown before them, but are either oblivious or have no intentions of pursuing the one showcasing their affections. If you want to read a manga where it feels like just about anything can happen on the next page, Fujimura-kun Mates is a hilarious read.


2. Mousou Telepathy

  • Mangaka: NOBEL
  • Genre: Comedy, Romance, School
  • Volumes: 4
  • Published: Feb. 2016 – Ongoing

Having supernatural abilities isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Nakano Ayako has had telepathy all her life, and it’s made for some awkward interactions. She reads everyone’s minds 24/7, meaning that she hears things most people want to keep secret or don’t want to say aloud. Some of these thoughts she reads are quite outrageous, especially those of her classmate Toda Hayato. He has recently developed a crush on her, and despite not having the guts to approach her, envisions some very strange scenarios playing out with her in his head. Uncertain of what to do with the attention of the school’s popular soccer ace, she quietly goes about her school life trying to keep her ability a secret.

Mousou Telepathy has a more reserved tone with the world being quite normal, but the comedy comes from Ayako and her ability to see what’s in someone’s head. Hayato imagines her wearing all sorts of racy clothing and seducing him, making her highly uncomfortable. She acts as a quiet straightman to these outlandish fantasies that play out in his mind and his friends’. While nothing ever quite gets to the level of outrageousness of Aho Girl, you can feel for Ayako as she tries to deal with the thoughts of everyone around her.


3. Boku no Kanojo ga Majimesugiru Shojo Bitch na Ken (My girlfriend is faithful virgin bitch)

  • Mangaka: Matsumoto, Namiru
  • Genre: Comedy, Romance, School
  • Volumes: 4
  • Published: Jul. 2015 – Ongoing

It’s possible to have the wrong ideas about someone before you get to know them. That can definitely be said of Shinozaki Haruka with his new girlfriend Kousaka Akiho. He thought she was just a pure, upstanding, intelligent beauty who acted as the class president. He comes to learn that she is one of the lewdest, most sexually aware girls on the planet, despite being a virgin. Now Akiho is dead-set on discovering Haruka’s fetishes and sexual fantasies, making him feel like he is the pure maiden in this new relationship instead.

Both Aho Girl and Boku no Kanojo ga Majimesugiru Shojo Bitch na Ken feature female main characters who fall way outside of the norm. Yoshiko being a massive idiot, and Akiho being incredibly lewd. The comedy stems from both male main characters desiring peaceful, normal school lives, but instead being swarmed by a multitude of odd people invading their space. While it’s definitely true that Haruka and Akiho both love each other, Haruka wishes that things would just settle down and be normal for a change. As a romantic comedy with tons of raunchy humor thrown in, it can be highly entertaining for those with a more perverted sense of humor.


Any Manga Like Aho Girl ?

4. Seitokai Yakuindomo

  • Mangaka: Ujiie, Tozen
  • Genre: Comedy, Romance, School
  • Volumes: 14
  • Published: May 2007 – Ongoing

Attending a new school can be awkward, but probably not as awkward as in Seitokai Yakuindomo. Ousai Academy has recently become co-ed, bringing a number of new male students to the once all-girls school. On his first day, Tsuda Takatoshi gets a stern lecture from student council president Shino Amakusa upon arriving. Afterwards, he finds himself recruited by her to join said student council and he meets the other members as well. Turns out that normalcy is not a prerequisite for being on the council, as Amakusa herself is obsessed with lewd activities and innuendos. There’s also the pretty but perverted Shichijou Aria, and the smart, small-statured Hagimura Suzu. As a new member, Takatoshi tries to get his bearings and keep from losing his sanity amongst these strange girls and their odd habits.

Like Aho Girl, both Akuru and Takatoshi are students trying to live properly. While Yoshiko bears little in common with the female main characters, they still manage to behave awkwardly all the same. The girls are interacting with boys for the first time, and having him on the council makes him the focus of their curiosity. He does have a good deal of respect for them as senior students, but that’s slowly being whittled away as their demands become increasingly off-putting. If you want to see a series where only one person has their head screwed on straight, this is a hilarious read.


5. Criminale!

  • Mangaka: Mizuiro, Suimin
  • Genre: Comedy, Romance, School
  • Volumes: 4
  • Published: Jul. 2015 – Apr. 2017

The world is a dangerous place as it is, but probably not as much as it is for Ichimura Tamito. He is something of a magnet for criminals, as they have plagued him his entire life, either trying to kill him, kidnap him, or steal from him. His life has never known peace, but he has become adept at dealing with them. The day he is transferred to a new class, he happens to rescue his classmate Komori Hinako from a knife-wielding assailant. Afterwards, he soon realizes that she and his other classmates are much different than himself, as everyone besides him has a high tendency to commit crimes.

Criminale! is a highly entertaining series that pits the plucky and good natured Tamito against those who are simply doing what comes natural to them. They’re all well meaning, but because of their personalities, breaking the law is as basic to them as breathing. Despite having run-ins with criminals his entire life, Tamito finds a growing bond between himself and these criminal masterminds of various talents. In the same way Akutsu Akuru desires a simple life free of Yoshiko, Tamito just wants to be a normal student in a world without crime. Although Criminale! was a rather short lived series, the entirety of it was an amazing run that you should not miss.


6. Henjo: Hen na Joshikousei Amaguri Chiko

  • Mangaka: Konogi, Yoshiru
  • Genre: Comedy, Ecchi, Romance
  • Volumes: 6
  • Published: Sep. 2012 – Ongoing

After a lengthy job search, Takamura and his friend Sugita enter the male bathroom only to find an odd girl inside. In a moment of confusion, she sees Takamura’s exposed privates and makes a curt comment, upsetting him. Writing her off as a perverted girl, Takamura forgets her. A month later, he has settled on being a handyman, with a live-in position at Handyman Amaguri. The daughter of the owner, Amaguri Senko, turns out to have been the odd girl he met previously. Thus begins the awkward romantic comedy of the easily manipulated Takamura and perverted high school girl Senko.

Takamura isn’t quite the solid straight man that Akutsu Akuru is, but he’s more normal than Senko. She will often say or do something that will put him off balance, causing him to respond in a way one normally might not. Senko herself enjoys being with someone who, although they might not approve of her behavior, can at least keep up with her in a discussion. It’s somewhat reminiscent to how Yoshiko interacts with Akuru, if only for the fact that both male leads are being dragged against their will, for better or worse. Almost every interaction is a laugh out loud moment, and if you’re looking for another funny series you should give this one a look.
