I personally feel that the Minami-ke (which is the first one... ) is much better than Okawari.... find the second one not as funny...

Season one is random and has more funny puns.
Okawari has better artwork.
For now, I say first one is better! ^^

They both make me laugh, but I prefer the first one because I feel the characters' personalities are shown better through the artwork. I dislike how Chiaki and Kana are drawn in Okawari; and the the gradience of Chiaki's hair which looks a lot like Nobue's from Ichigo Mashimaro isn't too appealing to me either.

I prefer Minami-ke! Okawari's drawing is not as good as the 1st season and the storyboarding sucks! Somehow, it has lost its charm... and I don't understand why is there a change of style for this! I like chiaki's brown hair more!! her blonde fade outs is weird too... BLAH! is all i can say to Okawari.

A change in directors and a change in style of animation.. The first season had perfect and impeccable timing.. They had decent random character designs and fluent animation..

The second season lacks the timing of the first season.. The character designs are less detailed and less fitting for this kind of anime.. And the animation lacks the fluency of the first season..

I think the first season is better..

I don't know about you guys but I've been noticing that people have been mentioning that the second season has better artwork.. Although the second season's animation is closer to the manga's illustrations, the first season is drawn out more complexly and has more realistic color contrast.. The first season also has a more impressive frame rate to animation, making it almost OVA quality..

Just because the hair looks prettier doesn't mean it has better artwork.. The second season also lacked character background, facial expression, and the scenery wasn't as clean and crisp either..

The fact that people think the first season is random is due to the studio's planning.. It is actually calculated in a way that their timing would come out as random.. The majority of everything that happened in the manga happens in the anime as well.. Except for the "Sensei to Ninomiya-kun" sketches...

Japan agrees as well.. Otherwise they wouldn't have considered making a third season from the original company..
