The Best Anime Like Hinamatsuri

Updated August 20, 2021 1.1k votes 224 voters 6.5k views28 items

If you've just finished with the unusual series Hinamatsuri, don't worry, anime has a wide variety of odd series that are sure to delight you with their crazy storylines. As a show about a yakuza member who finds himself looking out for an alien girl, you would think that there'd be very few anime series that could seriously compare. However, we have plenty of Hinamatsuri recommendations that would prove otherwise. 

So what are the best anime like Hinamatsuri? Series like Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai and The Devil is a Part-Timer show how the supernatural in our world can be a fickle thing, riddled with unseemly humor that might be a little too real if you've ever been a high schooler or had a job in the fast food industry. However, if the alien aspect of this show is something you could do without, there's always Asobi Asobase and Chio's School Road which can be so absurd, your sides will ache with laughter. When it comes to recommendations for Hinamatsuri, the list is almost limitless, but thankfully we've trimmed it down for you a little. 

Vote up for your favorite series and let us know which anime was most like Hinamatsuri to you!
