As far as spastic, random comedies go Pani Poni Dash! would be pretty high on anyone’s list. Frankly, I am a little bit surprised that it is only scored on the lists of a mere 3,000 MAL users. At its best, PPD is a hilarious parody with references from Gundam to Star Trek and Indiana Jones. Unfortunately, a good many of its jokes and humor will be lost of all but the most informed otaku's.

Pani Poni Dash follows the exploits of Rebecca Miyamoto, an 11 year old child prodigy who becomes a high school teacher and her freshman class and the mysterious read more

Pani Poni Dash is a very light hearted and hilarious slice of life comedy thats fun for the whole family to enjoy. Don't worry about that middle finger on the first episode since thats the only vulgar thing in the whole show. This style has beend done a million times over and I believe Pani Poni Dash is one of the reasons why this style of genre keeps being made over and over.

Story: (Fair)
The story is pretty simplistic but follows the basic of a classic comedic sitcom (issues that can be solved in under 30 minutes). The story evolves a classroom whose teacher just read more

Pani Poni Dash is easily one of the best comedy anime I've ever watched. The background story is interesting but the "genius girl" thing has been done before. However, Pani Poni Dash takes an approach much different from other schoolkids anime like School Rumble and even Azumanga Daioh.

Pani Poni Dash is chock full of fun parodies, cameos, and tidbits. You'd better have your finger over the pause button to read all the footnotes and references in Pani Poni Dash. The plot is very loose but present enough to give the anime a framework to works its humor off.

Before I begin, let me get something off of my chest. This show is very similar to another, somewhat famous, anime by the name of Azumanga Daioh. It's about a series of seemingly unrelated events in a school environment that happen to a small group of girls in a class. Heck, the show even has a strange, talking, anthropomorphic cat. Now that I have that connection out of the way, I hope to never mention it again in the remainder of this review.

Pani Poni Dash is a fully functional comedy anime that will make you laugh at times, but it is far from perfect. read more

Recommendations

Anime: Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei
Both shows are from the same studio, SHAFT, so they share quite a bit in terms of humour and style. Zetsubou Sensei has much more dark humor though, and a more distinct artistic style (in some ways similar to xxxHOLIC). Pani Poni Dash is a little more off-the-wall and random, and focuses quite a bit more on references to other anime and games and such.

Anime: Lucky☆Star
COMEDY. Lots and lots of Japanese pop culture references in both. And there's also that one bit in Lucky Star that parodies Pani Poni Dash, and I'm sure that if Pani Poni was created after Lucky star it'd be the other way around.

Anime: Negima!?
Both of these come from the same studio, so they have a lot in common... most noticeably the weird frog and the quirky sense of humor. It borders on being ridiculous, so I don't suppose it's for everybody, but if this sort of humor suits you then you're in for a treat.

Anime: Nichijou
The show has a similar type of humor that completely ignores Western viewer's taste, but rather relies on Japanese viewer's fondness of unpredictable humors. They both have a talking animal (Sakamoto-san and Mesousa), a chibikko sensei in a lab coat (Hakase and Becky), and a dumb energetic girl (Yuuko and Himeko). Both shows also have a very stylish OP theme with plenty of movement.

If you've seen Pani Poni Dash, and loved it's unique style, then make sure you check out Akiyuki Shinbo's latest show Maria†Holic.
