Roaming the halls of the all-boys Sanada North High School are three close comrades: the eccentric ringleader with a hyperactive imagination Hidenori, the passionate Yoshitake, and the rational and prudent Tadakuni. Their lives are filled with giant robots, true love, and intense drama... in their colorful imaginations, at least. In reality, they are just an everyday trio of ordinary guys trying to pass the time, but who said everyday life couldn't be interesting? Whether it's an intricate RPG reenactment or an unexpected romantic encounter on the riverbank at sunset, Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou is rife with bizarre yet hilariously relatable situations that are anything but mundane.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]


Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou includes eight pre-airings of about five minutes in length, which were distributed through Nico Nico Douga. These pre-airings were all eventually shown during the TV series' run.

The anime was released on Blu-ray in a premium and standard edition by NIS America. The former was released on August 6, 2013 and the latter on August 4, 2015. The series was dubbed in Tagalog by Creative Programs, Inc.

"Everybody's youth is a dream, a form of chemical madness." F. Scott Fitzgerald.

Oh youth and the epic journey called growing up. Most people tend to, in a way or another, be deeply defined by their teenage years. High school is a fond memory to some and a painful one to others, but I think everyone can agree that it is a unique and special period of our lives, one that has no equal. Most people quickly relate the words High School with friendship, as the friends you make in that period of time seem to leave a permanent mark in your memories and so ...

Mixed Feelings
M'kay, this kinda bored the crap outta me, now I know that there are those of you out there who totally love this type of genre but I wasnt feeling this at all.
Imagine some camera crew following you around all day filming everything you do, now maybe that would be awesome; but if your life isnt any more exciting than mine, it would be a pretty shitty show. So this is supposed to be daily lives, but as a highschool boy (or near enough) I know that my experience was waaay different from this and I wasnt able to relate to anything going on.

We are all aware about how first impressions are a very important factor if you’re going to enjoy a show.
My first impression of Danshi was it was a more annoying version of Kimi to Boku.
The comedy style seems to be the same as Drifters comedy at times. That immediately turned me off from that show.

What also doesn’t help is this is indeed another episodic show that I continue to have issues with.
