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.

Ladies and gentlemen, brace yourselves for a review of Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou that will have you laughing, crying, and wondering why the heck you haven't watched this anime yet.

First off, the story. It's like a rollercoaster ride through the awkwardness of high school life, with unexpected twists and turns that will leave you gasping for air. It's funny, it's relatable, and it's everything you want in a slice-of-life anime.

My introduction to this was once seeing clips of this on YouTube a long time ago. It involved clips of Yassan by the river. It seemed so full of potential based on these clips. A lot of my favorite anime are comedic slice of life manga adaptations like this one. The title encapsulates exactly the kind of thing I want out of an anime. The comedic in the mundane.

Finally getting around to the show it had a promising start. This seems like a nitpick but the outro really vibed me out a lot. It got to a point where I would stop the episode at ...
