In Gintoki's Japan, the arrival of the various space races known collectively as the Amanto ended the era of the samurai. The Amanto's highly advanced technology resulted in total conquest and a severe economic shift. Now, former samurai such as Gintoki scrape together whatever livelihood they can. Gintoki's profession of choice is that of a yorozuya: he'll complete any job for money. However, he’s unmotivated; and spending most of the day on the couch with the latest issue of Jump and a carton of Strawberry Milk is his preferred pastime. It turns out that his new unpaid employees, Shinpachi and Kagura, are going to interfere with his pastime even more than with his "work"! Of course, none of this means he has really given up on his samurai ideologies!
If you enjoy a good laugh you will enjoy these two series! The Comedy style is nearly the same in both Gintama and in Daily lives of Highschool Boys, it will have you tearing from laughter for the whole episode! Daily Lives of highschool Boys cut's its episode into sketch like snip-bits that are arougn 5 minutes long. Gintama though devotes a whole episode or more to a whole subject, with many jokes inbetween. The voices of some of the main characters are also shared between the two series.
These two animes have a very similar sense of humor. If you enjoy a good comedy anime, you'll like either one!
And if this matters to you at all they share a number of the same voice actors. Gintoki's voice actor is Hidenori, and Sougo's is Yoshitake.
Same voice actors and the same manner of blowing small things way out of proportion for comedical impact. Not that it's a bad thing, it's what makes these two shows very fun and a very worthwhile watch you will not regret.
Basically, Danshi Koukousei is a school life sketch show from the creators of Gintama (the same studio, the same director and even the same voice actors involved); therefore, while the series have different settings and different format of episodes, the comedy in both is rather similar and will likely appeal to the same audience.
Shun, Kaname, and the twins Yuuki and Yuuta have known each other since they were young children and are now entering their second year at Homare High School. However, despite having been friends for many years, their life together isn’t always smooth sailing. And with the sarcastic and indifferent twins constantly teasing or irritating the serious Kaname, it's left up to the optimistic and kind Shun to keep the peace. But no matter their differences, the four boys stick together through everything, whether they’re simply reminiscing about their days in kindergarten, attempting to get Yuuki interested in a school club, or trying to stop the source of Shun's recent run of bad luck.
If you took Daily Lives of High School Boys and drained out all the comedy, you'd get the much blander Kimi to Boku.. If you're looking for a slice of life about school boys, I suggest you watch either one of these, but if you're looking for comedy, I suggest Daily Lives of High School Boys.
They're both similar in that they're comedy/slice-of-life shows focusing on high school boys, unlike the near-ubiquitous shows that focus on high school girls. However, both shows differ wildiy in execution. Daily Lives... has a frantic style of comedy, hysterical characters and rather odd situations. Kimi to Boku., the other hand, has a more down to earth approach to both comedy and situations, its characters rather mellow (or milquetoast) in comparison.
If you saw Kimi to Boku. but want some more pace and fun characters, go watch Daily Lives..., but if Daily Lives... was a bit to... loud for you, check out Kimi to Boku. And if you watched either one but just want to watch some school boys, why not watch the other series?
Two slice of lifes about a group of high school boys, each of whom has a distinct personality. Drama and humor ensue.
While D.L.H.S.B. is more comedic, Kimi to Boku has it's humourous moments as well - and both of which have their heart-warming moments and revolve around every day high school life.
In present day Japan, the life of a school girl is never dull. The easily-bored Konata never finds time to study because of her otaku habits, which frustrates hard-working Kagami to no end. On the other hand, laid-back Tsukasa always manages to go with the flow, while Miyuki is concerned with keeping her status as resident know-it-all. Join these four girls as they muse and meander their way through everyday events such as eating chocolate cones, doing homework, gaming, and trips to the beach galore.
These are both really great anime series! They have a very similar feel in terms of intelligence and structure, although I prefer Code Geass over Death note, they certainly come close to each other in my books.
These shows are a perfect match for each other. They are similar in every way with the exception of the moe art style of Lucky Star.
They are almost exactly alike, but in Lucky Star, Konata is the only Otaku. Daily Lives of High School Boys is loaded with male Konata clones XD
Take Lucky Star, divide the number of episodes by half, replace female main characters with male characters, add boy-specific humor... This is 'Daily Lives of High School Boys'!
Yuuko, Mio and Mai are regular high school girls who lead a normal everyday life. However, with bizarre explosions causing random objects to rain down on their heads, lunch turning into an epic battle between girl and wiener, and students riding to school on goats, their lives are anything but ordinary. Meanwhile android Nano spends her days wishing she were a normal human, but keeping house for her creator, the playful and immature child genius Hakase, dealing with talking cat Sakamoto, and trying to keep a hold of her multitude of easily-detachable body parts, her dream is far from a reality...
both have very similar way of portraying slapstick comedy styles.however Nichijou outshines DKNN in every aspect.
Both shows are prime examples of frantic, slapstick-ridden schoolyard comedies. Nichijou is a little more frantic, but they are pretty similar in theory. If you liked either of these I can readily recommend the other one.
There is a reason High School Boys is nicknamed "Nichibros". If you like comedies with extreme reactions particularly over mundane life you'd love both shows.
These two are definitely almost identical in presentation and style of humor. Slapstick comedy at it's finest.
There’s never a dull day in lives of the Hekiyou Academy student council! President Kurimu has a sweet tooth and neglects her duties with ease, while secretary Chizuru skillfully manipulates those around her. Otaku Mafuyu obsesses over writing online walkthroughs, and is constantly hounded by Ken, the only male of their crew and an eroge addict who has the ultimate goal to turn the entire council into his harem. Luckily for Mafuyu she’s protected from his advances by Minatsu, her sporty and tomboyish sister! Together, the five repeatedly struggle in their fight against boredom, making constant otaku references and fighting against the journalism club along the way!
I would recomend this anime because it both involves a group of high school students making bizzare situation with their ordinary lives.
If you like the kind of humor found in one show then you'll enjoy the humor in the other. They are very similar in many ways in the comedic aspect and both appeal to the same demograph.
The really odd out of place humor taken to the extreme is what makes these two shows similar. They do it with such great execution that it never feels wrong. The shows are very epic, definitely worth watching.
Both are one of the few Japanese anime that I find pretty funny. (I love anime but the writers usually can't do much more than gag comedy)
