Tadakuni, Hidenori, and Yoshitake are students at the all-boys academy, Sanada North High School. This is a tale about just that—their daily lives as students. Winning the basketball tournament? Finding true love? You won't find any of that here. Whether it's sparking random arguments while hanging out with friends, meeting that one weird co-worker at a part-time job, or even letting imaginations run wild on a windy afternoon, we've all experienced the show's ordinary but true-to-life themes at one point or another.

“I suppose if we couldn't laugh at the things that don't make sense, we couldn't react to a lot of life.” – Hobbes, from Calvin and Hobbes.

As a stressed out college student, I constantly find myself looking back at my high school years and remembering the fun old times. My all boys school meant that we could rein in free chaos without the worry of having to act proper around girls, so my class and I did all sorts of pranks and whatnot. From playing football in the hallway, to accidentally taking down a security camera, to taking down the school flag and wearing it read more

— Hilarious jokes and situations, in both setup and execution
— Insightful and outrageous satire of common anime tropes
— Stellar voicing and relatable, varied cast of characters
— Segment-based structure keeps things moving before jokes grow old


— A few jokes you can see coming, a rarer few that miss the mark

Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou (from here on DKN) went far above and beyond my expectations. Playing off the all-too-common “schoolgirls and everyday life” genre, DKN is far more than the mere gender reversal it may first appear to be.

Having an all-male cast, ignoring the “moe” factor really works in the show's favor. There is likewise no unnecessary read more

Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou is an anime about exactly what it's named after. Daily lifes of high school boys, a quirky and fun shounen slice of life anime. This anime was a rather enjoyable watch, despite my dislike of anime which I consider having "no plot". It's story is presented to you in a sort of comic-like form, giving you short stories within the span of several minutes, each with their own fun little story or happening either being new or a continuation of another story. For example, "Daily Lives of High School Boys 2", being a continuation of the past short story, "Daily Lives read more

Highschool Boys + Ridiculous actions = Hilarious slice of life anime = Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou

Story: 9 - ( There isn't really any story or plot here ) This story is about Tadakuni,Hidenori,Yoshitake and their daily lives as they attend an all-boys academy. This series is basically focused on how really normal and petty things can turn into hilarious jokes as their lives don't really go on. A reason why I like this series is because despite having no story it was so funny which is why you don't need to add any logic or brains here as you can watch it when you're in read more

Exactly the same kind of humour, but different setting. 
Both are slice-of-life anime dealing with the everyday high school lives of boys/girls. Both can be rather hit or miss in the comedy department, though Nichijou tends to takes its jokes to whole new extremes. 
Same kind of humor, about teenaged boys trying to figure out life. 
Surreally hilarious (and hilariously surreal) slice-of-life series about allegedy normal life at all-boys high schools. 
-Both contains School Life/ Slice of Life/Romance and is centered around comedy.
-Both animes are compiled of short stories, and are full 30 minute episodes. 
Same atmosphere and comedy but DKnN is with boys and Minami-ke is with girls. If you like one, you will like the other.
