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.

Characters & Voice Actors
— 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 fan service—the show places jokes first and foremost, and that lends itself well to the short skit-like structure of the various comedy bits. Alternately dry and outrageous, DKN's jokes never fail to solicit a laugh. They are helped along commendably by the flamboyant facial expressions and varying vocal tones for which anime is so well-loved.
It's hard to universally recommend a comedy show as the genre draws on what is often rather personal taste. The best parallel I can make to its off-the-wall humor is the type found in many 4-koma and parody manga strips. If you enjoy the aforementioned, you will find yourself at home with DKN.
Of note is the parodic vein of common anime situations, characters, feelings, and stereotypes DKN contains. I don't want to give too much away, but the “meta” humor it features is a real high point.
Even with its nearly pure comedy focus, DKN manages to achieve the “refreshing” vibe that so many slice-of-life works go for. The author's keen understanding of high school boys' mentality—their zeitgeist, if you'll humor my ten-dollar vocabulary—really shines through in the show's less zany moments, and those of gut-busting hilarity alike. As a male viewer, abundantly flowing were my (figurative) single-cheek tears of laughter and nostalgia at the familiar antics and feeling of young friendship illustrated in this masterwork.
Special mention must be made of the insanely clever Literature Girl segments, easily the show's standout and my favorite comedy bits of any show in recent memory. Also to Sugita Tomokazu, the well-loved Kyon, for his excellent portrayal of Hidenori in said skit and across the show at large.
Through and through, an outstanding show. If you can connect with its brand of comedy, the humor and heart within will stick with you for some time to come. read more
Story (9/10) -
Daily Lives of High School Boys is a 12 episode series based off a manga by Yasanobu Yamauchi. The series follows the daily lives of high school students, specifically, the comings and goings of the all male student population at Sanda North Boys High. Yup. That’s it. Don’t look for anything more earth shattering than that, guys. That’s all you get with Daily Lives; odd boys doing odd things…just like Lucky Star is cute girls doing cute things. This show doesn’t try to rewrite the book on what a high school comedy can be; it just uses a tried and true formula and rolls with it, using the everyday conversations and situations high school boys face on a day-to-day basis to push things along. However, the thing that makes this show stand out more than other high school comedies, is the fact that the writing seems so unique.
Art (8/10) –
The animation style of Daily Lives is much like the show itself; nothing out of the ordinary. Everything is very well done, as is expected of a project tag-teamed by Square Enix and Studio Sunrise. I have to say, I really liked the character designs this time around. Unlike Free! who felt the need to give their male cast these bulging, rippling, “there’s no way in HELL those can exist on a regular human” mound of muscles, “Nichibros” give these characters an awkward gawky look that makes them more endearing to the viewer. One thing that I noticed about this particular show, animation wise, was the fact that the creators made a point not to show ANY male character wearing their uniform correctly–everyone has their shirts un-tucked, some characters leave their ties undone or don’t wear the ties at all. It adds a level of realism to the whole thing–after all, do you HONESTLY expect a group of high school boys to wear the uniform the RIGHT way? I do question why the animators decided to give some of their non-main characters the shadow eye treatment. While it doesn’t really take anything AWAY from the anime, it is a bit distracting.
Sound (8/10) -
The opening theme this time around is “Shiny Tale” by Mix Speakers, Inc. Seriously, I can’t get enough of this song. It’s so upbeat and it actually sounds like the opening theme for an anime that’s centered on high school boys. The Entire Cast of "Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou" in the End Credits...Note The Haruhi Cosplayer...The animation it’s played over is awesome and matches extremely well. The closing theme is “Ohisama” ["Sun"] by Amessaki Annainin. This song…well…it’s weird. Not “bad” weird, don’t get me wrong at all, but it’s weird on a “what the heck am I listening to, and why do I like it so much” weird. I can honestly say this is the first time I’ve ever heard a kazoo used as a musical instrument in an anime theme song…and it’s not bad! The animation that plays over the scene is, for all intents and purposes, the funniest ending credit sequence I’ve ever seen…EVER. You can keep the karaoke scenes at the end of Lucky Star, and the “Hare Hare Youkai” from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. This ending animation puts all of them to SHAME. The incidental music is just as funny and cool as the action it’s played over, yet it doesn’t dominate the scenes.
As with any story of this nature, it’s the characters that move things along—after all, it’s a slice of life, so the characters that we follow have to be interesting. Here’s the breakdown:
The long suffering straight man of our primary bro-trio. He’s pretty average as compared to his friends Hidenori and Yoshitake, and thus is always exasperated to the point of manic over their antics…though he does have a crazy streak of his own.
Our glasses-wearing character of the trio. Remember that old-school Nickelodeon TV show “Kenan and Kel”? Well, he’s an animated version of Kenan. He’s this grand over-the-top character who often kicks off the crazy conversations and situations our primary bro-trio gets into.
The blond-haired [Dyed…] member of our primary bro-trio. If Hidenori is Kenan, then Yoshitake is Kel. He’s more apt to follow Hidenori’s lead with regards to crazy ideas, leaving Tadakuni to spaz out. In his youth, Yoshitake was known as the masked avenger “Rubber Shooter”, helping out those who were being bullied. In fact, though Hidenori doesn’t know it, Yoshitake actually helped him out as “Rubber [Band] Shooter” when he was being bullied. Quite commendable…even though he sits in his chair oddly.
Our dark skinned student council member. While he looks like he could be a juvenile delinquent, and when we first meet him, he is referred to as such, Motoharu is actually a really nice guy who gets along well with his older sister, even though she tormented him when he was younger, and her friends tend to have their way with him [not in that way you pervs…] at any given time. Motoharu is the Nichibro I relate to more than any of the others because, bless him, he doesn’t know how to ride a bike. Thankfully in his case, as well as mine, he had his bros help him out.
Another student council member. You’ll know him by the ever-persistent cap on his head. He wears the cap to cover over a very distinct scar on his face that was given to him by a girl when he was little. Though he comes off as being very mysterious and aloof, he’s actually capable of being just as goofy as the others.
There are more characters in this compendium of kooks, like the Student Council President and his Second in Command who never really seem to be in the Council Room, Tadakuni’s Little Sister who is by far one of the cruelest little sister characters in anime […Oriemo not withstanding, because I'm still trying to figure out what the heck is going on there…], or the group of oddball girls from the “High School Girls are Funky” skit. Suffice it to say, they are the perfect compliment to our main cast as listed above.
Enjoyment (10/10) -
So where does that leave us? Daily Lives of High School Boys is about as realistic a look into the lives of teenage boys as you can get currently. It’s not willowy light like Kimi to Boku, nor is it fangirl fodder like…THAT show…it’s just an honest, hilariously funny look at the lives of some very…odd high school boys. With its funny and realistic story, entertaining characters, odd yet functional animation, jamming music, and all-star voice cast, Daily Lives of High School Boys will leave you feeling nostalgic for your high school years…and wondering if you and your friends were really as big of dorks as Tadakuni, HIdenori and Yoshitake. Nine times out of ten…you were.
What is the first thing pop up in your head when you hear a high-school-slice-of life-comedy anime? Boring, if you ask me. I used to think that a pure comedy show revolving around high school students life is so common and dull, my perception changed after I watched Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou or Daily Lives of High School Boys in English. The title may give you a doubt, I wouldn't be surprised if you're skeptical, what's so great about watching a normal everyday life anime? This series stands out because it succeed in delivering what it offers, that is comedy.
Let's move on to the story. This show is quite literally what the title says; it's about the daily lives of irrational high school boys from Sanada North to be precise. No it's not about cute boys do cute things, it's about a group of school boys do what they do best, such as slacking off in a friend's house, pranking on people, talking about girls, telling random stories and any other things in exaggeration manners that will crack you up. You won't find a twisted plot, complicated story or a bunch of giant robots destroying the city, the latter is exceptional thou. Well, it's Sunrise to begin with. Every episode of this series is composed of several short skits/sketches which usually are not connected to the other. For me, the punchlines most of them hit the mark while other are predictable. Each episode, each sketch is like riding a roller coaster, but it has more ups than downs. I had fun and good laughs. Some people may find one or two sketches boring and unfunny. But again, I believe comedy is subjective -- what's funny to one person will not always to another.
As for the art, it's quite decent but it's not amazing either. Although the background is simple but it's pretty detailed especially the buildings which is fine for this kind of show. The characters are well drawn and they look natural, like how the male characters aren't wearing their uniform properly. That's how the high school boys dressed. They leave their ties undone, some characters even don't bother to wear ties at all, their shirt are un-tucked, even Karasawa is wearing a hat all the time. The funny expressions or the faces they make is enough to make me burst out in laughter. The characters are also well animated, I notice some characters look alive and vibrant. There is one thing I'm complaining about its design, they (the studio) probably decided to cut corners by drawing some characters with no eyes or it was simply lazy, I have no idea. Still, one can say it's on purpose to show which ones are the main characters. Overall it doesn't ruin the show thou.
Another strong point of this show is the characters. First of all, the series doesn't have much character development. I believe character development isn't always necessary especially in a pure comedy show like this one, as long as they are there to make you laugh, that will do. Now let's check out our main characters, the first is Tadakuni, he is the straight man in the group and probably the most ordinary among the trio, but surprisingly, he's someone you can easy relate to. He's usually needed to pull off the jokes. Hidenori, he's the one who usually comes up with crazy schemes. The last is my favourite, Yoshitake, the blond guy. He usually plays along when Hidenori comes up with anything stupid. Their exaggerated attitudes, expressions and randomness are really amusing to watch. In the midst of the series, in fact, they don't "eat" all the screen time. In other words, if one is too "normal" being a student, he won't have much screen time. This when the supporting characters rise. I find the supporting roles are very interesting as well, complete with their own unique personalities. One thing I mind is how violence the girls are to the boys. In my opinion, it's a bit overusing for a slapstick joke anime like this.
I can't say much about the sound. The opening song is rather typical but I find the ending sequence is really something. They put a skit on the ending which is very interesting. The upbeat and catchy music while the casts are performing a play in cultural festival is hilarious. The randomness on it is epic. I have no complaints for the voice acting. The voice actors fits the characters, especially Hidenori who's voiced by Sugita (he also has done voice for Gintoki). The way when he talks to himself or when he's overthinking something really makes me laugh.
My personal note; Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou is a solid comedy show. If you're looking for good laughs, I'd like to suggest you to give it a shot. In my experience, in every episode I've watched I always find at least one or two skits that are funny and memorable. Moreover, I'm sure you can somehow relate them to your highschool life, although it won't be as extreme and funny as in this series. This is the first time I've watched an anime that is divided into several skits each episode and I like it. I would gladly recommend this to everyone. Overall, This show is thoroughly entertaining and worthy my time. read more
I quite enjoyed this anime for various reasons. It was quite funny and definitely had something that most males could relate to. The jokes were funny and the scenarios were very believable. Each character has his/her own unique characteristics and personalities and they all compliment each other very well.
Overall I really enjoyed it and was a good change of pace from the other anime I have watched.
9/10 would recommend for a good laugh and a good time.
Exactly the same kind of humour, but different setting.
Kimi to boku meets Gintama.boys doing random funny stuff in high school setting.it is from Sunrise like Gintama and shares many staff with it like Takamatsu, Shinji as director,Audio Highs for music and Sugita, Tomokazu and Suzumura, Kenichi as Voice Actors
Other than the fact that one of the main character is voiced by same voice actor as Gintoki, this anime really does remind me of Gintama, but in an entirely different and refreshing set up. It was also very unique for me in terms of its take on high school girls, most anime I see show high school girls as timid and powerless or outright evil. The comedy is outstanding, there's never a dull moment. Don't give it much thought, just go for it. This series won't disappoint.
Daily life, crazy characters, a lot of comedy, randomness.
They're both comedies animated by Sunrise. They also happen to have the same director and composer and a few similar voice actors.
They both have a very similar style of comedy and you'll definitely get Gintama vibes while watching Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou.
Uncontrollable laughter...oh and Tomokazu Sugita
DanKou and Gintama share some of the aspects as the comedy anime. Although Gintama (and it's sequel) are superbly funny, DanKou's Situational Comedy was similar to Gintama. You got the same director, same music composer, same producer for this anime and the same seiyuus from the epic anime series.
They nearly have the same comedy sense, it doesn't have any arcs but its hilarious to the core. If you liked Gintama's way of comedy and the way that girl's are stronger than guys, go ahead and watch Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou!
Jokes' topics, episodic style and pure randomness make Daily Lives of High School Boys and Gintama quite alike in terms of comedy. As for die-hard Gintama fans, these animes not only share Sugita Tomokazu and Suzumura Kenichi, but also voice actors of Sa-chan, Zura, Kijima Matako and even the frigging Shogun! You'll definitely have some fun figuring them out.
When i think of 'What similar to Gintama..?' I instantly think of Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou! Both animes have the same kinda comedy feel to them. They drop jokes in the same way too and they also kinda break the 'fourth wall' during episodes. The only difference between the shows would be Gintama is about Yakuza's and fighting while Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou is about high school boys in their daily lives.
Overall both animes and great and similar in many ways.
The same sense of humor. Some scenes are totally random, characters have epic inner thoughts about ordinary things and sometimes have the same way of speaking. Both series are very funny and make you laugh out loud.
Also you can hear a few seiyuus from both of these series. Hidenori is voiced by Sugita Tomokazu - the same goes for Gintama's main character - Gintoki. There's Suzumura Kenichi (DKNN - Yoshitake, Gintama - Okita), Ishida Akira (DKNN - President, Gintama - Katsura) and Kobayashi Yuu (DKNN - Yanagi, Gintama - Sacchan).
And both are made by Sunrise. It explains everything.
Studio Sunrise animated both of them.
Shinji Tkamatsu directed both of them.
Tomokazu Sugito voiced Gintoki from Gintama and Hidenori from DKnN.
Audio Highs composed music for both shows.
Also, same comedy style: mocking everything around them!
Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou is Gintama in High school setting.
The style of parody is really similar to Gintama, not to mention same seiyuu on one of the characters.
Both involve a trio and there is no real story to it, but both are really enjoyable comedies all the way through.
Danshi Koukousei and Gintama are two rare shows in anime industry that make use of situational irony as its main source of entertainment, though Gintama also heavily lean on parody of practically everything. Both shows are mainly episodic, showcasing the main characters' daily lives.
Made my the same studio and has similar comedy. Both are hilarious! Both have the same delivery of jokes and comedic behavior. If you enjoyed or loved either of these you'll enjoy the other as well.
Guaranteed to make you laugh each episode. Have a bunch idiot, crazy people that sometime make the "tsukkomi" (straight man) stressed. Both main "boke" (funny person) voiced by an awesome seiyuu Sugita-san, make it even cooler. The difference is that Gintama sets in ancient Japan, danshi koukousei now. Also Gintama has more development of plot. If you love comedy, you should watch both of them.
These two series have the same kind of comedy and absurd situations, maybe because they have the same director and Sugita Tomokazu in the lead role (Gintoki/Hidenori).
Both are mainly plotless but have some long-lasting stories.
Their music (same composer) has also the same perfect way to accompagny the comedy.
Gag humour that picks up after a while, if you enjoyed Danshi in that manner you will probably enjoy Gintama and get more.
Both are very funny and relaxing.
Gintama - Is longer and therefore has more deep story
Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou - doesn't have a real plot
Overall, they are both great anime and worth your time unless you dislike comedy.
JUST DO IT.
Everything in Gintama except well its fans and 200+ episodes is in Danshikou. They both have Sugita-san in it, above all else, sexual jokes and some touching or laughable or touching/laughing moments.
Both anime focuses heavily on comedy and gags, both are produced by Sunrise, you can find same seiyuus in both anime such as Sugita Tomokazu, Suzumura Kenichi, Kobayashi Yuu.
My favourite comedy series, altough different in settings (Gintama is set in the Edo period with a twist and Danshi is set in highschool) the story follow tree main chars and their daily lives but here is where the fun begins, every little thing becomes the biggest thing in the universe, every normal scene turns into something comical and everyone is anything but "normal".
Both share a couple of voice actors (Tomozaku Sugita as Gintoki and Hidenori, Suzumura Kenichi as Sougo and Yoshitake etc), both made by Sunrise.
Having a bad day? Start watching this, the bad day will turn into the best day eva.
Both are freaking awesome :P
Plus have the same sense of humour.
Both shows have similar humor. If you liked one you'll like the other. The director if I am not mistaken is the same as in some episodes of gintama and the voice actor of Hidenori is the same of Sakata Gintoki.
- Exactly same style of humor (both are adapted Japanese humor method called Manzai).
- Same Studio
- Same type of character with the same roleplay .
Gintoki --> Hidenori (Troller 1)
Kagura --> Yoshitake (Troller 2)
Shinpachi --> Tadakuni (Straightman).
Same style of comedy, has references to different animes. Both will have you laughing a lot.
Gintama is set in a world of samurai and aliens
Danshi Koukousei is a school type setting
Both animes have the same type of humor. They are both extremely hilarious with never-ending jokes.
Gintama : Gintama is about a former Samurai trying to make a living while being a Jack of All Trades. He befriends two people, Kagura and Shinpachi, and they decide to stay and work with him in the odd jobs they are given.
Danshi Koukousei no nichijou (Daily lives of high school boys) : Is simply as the title says. Three friends, high school boys, go through their normal, joke filled days in high school. Wondering what normal boys wonder such as things about girls, food, etc.
In these two animes, you will never be bored. Every episode is packed with hilariousness. The main character in Gintama has the same voice actor as the main character in Danshi as well.
These two animes are not ones to be missed, they are extremely hilarious.
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.
Slife-of-life series that set themselves apart from the rest with their ridiculous humour and random high-tension moments. They call themselves 'everyday' series, and sure enough, even their absolute weirdest moments can be strangely relatable.
Despite the fact that Nichijou focuses on the daily lives of high school girls, and Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou focuses on the daily lives of high school boys, there are three elements that shine very brightly and show a certain correlation in both series. The first is the underlying concept: these shows tackle some of the common aspects of being a high school girl or boy, respective to the title, as well as some of the stranger aspects of it. Second is the execution of this idea. Both are comedies, and, therefore, exaggerate certain scenarios, but both do so in a similar manner, and typically through the eyes of a growing set of cast members, while still remaining primarily focused on three main characters (well, I suppose you could say five or six, in Nichijou’s case). The responses to these absurd scenarios are typically outrageous, but always unique to the individual character who experiences or responds to it. Thirdly, the art style of both are different from each other, but, at the same time, very distinct and set apart from the art from other titles, and the music is very unique and catchy.
Both of these anime are set apart from other comedy-based anime due to their unique execution and strangely engaging, yet distant cast. If one of the two manages to capture your attention, the other is likely to do the same.
Daily life of high school students with a lot of comedy, and both is so RANDOM!
Both series' episodes contain a few sketches which rarely correspond to other and they have similar humor style.
Both are school comedies with the same type of random humor. One is just mainly about girls, and the other one is mainly about boys.
Even the title is similar. DKNN presents the daily life of high school boys. Nichijou does the same, but with girls. Both series are very funny, have the same sense of humor and hilarious/wierd characters. Yukko is a little bit similar to Tadakuni IMO. And Mio reminds me of Hidenori and Yoshitake.
I think that every Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou fan should try Nichijou. It's worth it.
Very similar comedy styles. Both set in a "normal" slice-of-life school setting, with random cutscenes of hilariousness. The only difference is Nichijou treats truly impossible events (robots, cats talking, etc.) as completely average. Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou focuses more on regular high school boys.
A story about their everyday life, the random things they do. They are really similar to each other only except that Nichijou has female main characters.
Both series adapt a slice of life approach with exaggerated scenes of humor, comedy, and absurd dialogues. In fact, some of the moments in both series are so random that it almost makes little to no sense.
Both series take place at a high school life setting where there is drama involving the main characters.
Both series also feature main cute scenes and just in general, nonsense revolving around the characters' lives.
A group of three school friends with varied personalities involve others in their weird, but entertaining lives.
If you liked Nichijou, then you'll love Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou. The two share a style of doing skits and random humor. The characters are quite enjoyable and the skits are unique. Although Nichijou is a bit more clean when it comes to the humor. Both still have got me laughing until I cried.
You will smile with this anime a lot. The jokes are very good and it's very original. I love this anime too, I smiled and enjoyed a lot with this anime. For me, is the best anime of comedy. I really recommend it.
Danshi and nichijou are both slice of life/comedy/randomness anime. They are really funny and interesting, but i think danshi is a bit funnier than nichijou. These shows don't have a story, so don't watch them if you expect story, these are just a bunch of random and hilarious jokes. While in danshi mc are male, in nichijou mc are female.
Both shows take place in high school and the episodes are made in the same way with different skits. They both mainly follow three friends but have a lot of side characters as well. If you liked the comedy of one then you'll surely like the other.
Nichijou was about similar to Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou.. In Nichijou, the story goes with female casts and some male supporting.. But in Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou, it was backward.. The story was casted by male actors and some female actors supporting the story.. Funny and laugh was the similarity of these anime series..
At first glance, both anime seems like regular old school life anime based on their titles, with Nichijou being the version center around female students while Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou can be the male counterpart. But, it can't be more misleading. Both anime can't be any farther from ordinary, and are hilarious and very fun to watch.
If you watched Nichijou I highly recommend to watch this too. Well if you already watched and loved Nichijou watching another "Everyday life" anime wouldn't hurt. The Comedy is on equal or IMO slightly better than Nichijou's. Also you don't need to remember the character's names to have fun (as stated in the anime) :D
Same kind of humor, about teenaged boys trying to figure out life.
Both are slice of life dealing with high school students. However, unlike the norm it doesn't focus around female students but male students.
Hilariously high-tension slice-of-life series about high school boys. Neither has much of a plot to speak of, but they both have the same bizarre sense of humour -- if you've seen one, you know what I mean!
Group of high school guys having their daily life with comedy.
Group of the boys do a crazy things. Both titles are slice of life.
The school life of a group of male friends, DKnN is on the sillier side of things but still has a nice warm feel to it.
The "plot" is kinda similar. Both series are about daily life of high school students. Also - both series are funny. The diffrence is that DKNN is more crazy while KTB stays more quiet and normal.
One of the main characters from Kimi to Boku, Chizuru, is voiced by Irino Miyu - the same guy who voiced Tadakuni. Another main character from KTB, Kaname, is voiced by Karasawa's seiyuu - Ono Yuuki. The guy with glasses from DKNN has the same voice actor as Akira from KTB (Kaji Yuki). Mitsuo has the same voice as Fuyuki (Okamoto Nobuhiko). As you can see - lots of seiyuus worked in both series.
From the perspective of a teenage male attending the equivalent of high school, these two animes are adventures which are extremely realistic and relatable. These two series both deal with the eccentricities and idiosyncrasies of teenage boys (especially in romance and in their perception of the other gender.) If you like either series about dudes discovering about life and enjoying their friendships, you'd probably like the other.
Both follow a group of male high school friends that depict them in their daily lives doing crazy and hilarious activities plus the random pranks make both anime really enjoyable (watch if you like comedy) Don't watch if you don't have a sense of humor you will dislike it im pretty sure of it.
Both are comedies about little strange high school boy's daily life. Though Kimi to boku is more cute and moe-like, when danshiko is more realistic and grazy.
The animation style, characters(both have a funny group of boys), comedy and the plot of a high school for boys
If you like Kimi to Boku you will like this
its about boys everyday school life and it is funny but danshi koukousei no nichijou is more hillarious due to their stupidty activities
Both have to do with a group of highschool boys and it shows them living there lives. Danshi Koukousei is less serous and more random/funny then Kimi to Boku
Both these series are school comedies, and in my opinion the best two there is. These are the best of the genre for me since i am not big on school comedies. They both revolve around a group of friends and their misdeeds and adventures on a daily scale. Both are pretty short, simple to watch and incredibly entertaining!
Surreally hilarious (and hilariously surreal) slice-of-life series about allegedy normal life at all-boys high schools.
Same sort of random comedic happenstance of boys in high school environments, both ridiculous in many ways. Cromartie is more over-the-top, but not so much to be a completely different idea.
Similar style of humor, only with really different art style and less surreal characters (but equally surreal jokes).
A bunch of high school guys goofing off and getting up to hilarious antics.
both funny and about the daily lives of high school boys at an all boys high school. Cromartie involves delinquents though and unlike this show does not rely on girls to make it funny.
Similar absurd, sometimes surreal, type of humor focused on a group of unusual high-school students. The main difference is that the deliquent motive is the core of Cromartie comedy, while in Nichijou it's only a part of a very wide array of skits.
I didn't want to believe it at first. I thought Cromartie High School was in a league of its own but I've found it's long lost bastard child. The pace of the humor, the total deadpan simplicity, everything, it's brilliant.
Short comedic skits by high school boys. Both anime follow lives of high school boys, which deal with all sorts of gags and comedy.
Similar style of comedy with the viewer expecting something crazy, yet still being surprised enough to make it funny. Likewise parodies the high school anime genre.
Very similar type of humor.
Same atmosphere and comedy but DKnN is with boys and Minami-ke is with girls. If you like one, you will like the other.
Comedy, comedy, and comedy with a bit of slice-of-life of course. Both series will try to get the viewers to laugh through parody.
They are both slice of life comedy themed animes. The characters are funny and each of them has different qualities which makes the show perfect in both series. The atmosphere is almost the same. In Danshi Koukousei, it's about three high schooler boys and their friends while it's three sisters and the people around them in Minami-ke. Both are likeable are both male and female watchers.
slice of life and comedy..
both have 3 protagonists..
Minami-ke and Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou are just animes you want to watch for a pointless laugh at wide range of characters and the way they can turn simple every day activities into something hilarious
Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou is only twelve episodes with one special whilst Minami-Ke has four seasons and one OVA. Both anime feel like a breath of fresh air after watching many serious anime or ones riddled with clichés. If you prefer a coherent story with lots of character development then neither of these are for you. If you're just getting into anime or you want to have a break from anime that take themselves too seriously then give both of these a go.
Both of them are animes that actually have no plot but very funny and the characters are likeable.
~Both anime talks about their daily lives in school and other places
~Very similar to each other (Jokes, Characters & events)
~Makes you laugh until you cry
~Makes you want to watch more
