    Maika Sakuranomiya is struggling to find a part-time job because of the way her eyes look; she always seems to have a nasty look whenever she smiles that frightens off any potential employers. However, there may be a solution when an Italian man, the owner of the cafe Stile, offers her a job. Rather than continuously trying to change the way she looks, she can use this glare to help out the cafe. Here at Stile, every waitress has a special trait, such a tsundere or little sister, to appeal to the customers. Despite her personality, Maika's look is perfect for the "sadistic" role. While this series isn't about dragons or anything too out of the ordinary, the humor in this and the style of characters is very much the same to what we see in Miss Kobayashi's

While there are plenty of humorous moments that would certainly rival Miss Kobayashi's, what will really get you is the heartwarming moments you weren't expecting.

        Yoshifumi Nitta already seemed like an out-of-the-ordinary guy, considering his status as a yakuza member, but things become even more strange when Hina enters his life. After being hit in the head by a random capsule, he opens it to find a young girl inside who tells him nothing about her. Hina only tells him that she is incredibly powerful and, if she loses control or her powers remain unused, she could cause an explosion. Now her caregiver, Yoshifumi is about to find out how difficult it is to have a supernatural child in the house. While the premise is certainly different from Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid, the premise about a human being thrown into insane circumstances is very much the same.

          Enjoying the idea of a supernatural being staying in the real world, trying to live a regular life? Gabriel DropOut is definitely the next thing that needs to be on your list. As part of their training to become full-fledged angels, Gabriel White Tenma has been sent to Earth to live among humans. While she once believed that she would be a source of great happiness for them, her time on Earth has left her with a horrible video game addiction and the self-proclaimed title, "Fallen Angel." The leading character is very much like Tooru, especially in the way she'd rather live in the human world versus her own.
