Cromartie High School

Cromartie High School

At Cromartie High, it’s tough being a delinquent -- a fact that do-gooder Takashi Kamiyama intimately understands. When he’s not engaging in contests of strength and rival gang wars, Kamiyama can also be found submitting punny jokes and planning his own rise to fame within the delinquents’ ranks, and that’s just the beginning! With friends like robotic Mechazawa, a giant gorilla, a hairy man from the 80s named Freddie and a clan of delinquents with mohawks that flow in the wind, how can anyone not enjoy high school?

The episodes are made up of seperate jokes and subjects in both these animes, although I think cromartie high school has a joke/subject per episode. Both series are about students. Both series have some philosophical topics such as taking pride in being manly or what it means to be a real friend and joke about such topics by taking actions at extreme lengths to demonstrate their dedication. Both make use of humor in surreal situations but the situations are common in everyday life.

Both shows are pure comedy, and revolve around events in a high school. Only that Cromartie's school is packed full of deliquents and Daily Lives' school is a normal one.

Both animes center around an ever growing number of male high school boys and the antics that they seem to always get into. Both animes are episodal in nature. Cromartie High School is more over the top with the antics that go on while Daily Lives of High School Boys is more subdued. If you liked Daily Lives of High School Boys you might also like Cromartie High School, but I cannot say the reverse would be true.

Meganebu!

Meganebu!

There’s more to glasses than meets the eye! Akira, Hayata, Mitsuki, Takuma and Yukiya are eager to prove that spectacles are useful as more than just a fashion accessory or vision-correction tool. And while their Glasses Club doesn’t have a club room or any budget, they’ll do whatever it takes to spread the glory of glasses! Their first goal? To make x-ray glasses that can easily see through any clothing!

Meganebu! and Daily Lives of High School Boys are two comedies centered around a not-so-bright group of immature boys. You'll find a plethora of jokes, ideas gone wrong, and an overall "anything goes" silly atmosphere in both series. The only difference is that the boys in Meganebu! are obsessed with glasses, but if comedy is want you want, I think fans of either series won't mind too much.

These are both fast paced comedies centered around a group of high school guys. There is no real plot to either anime, instead the episodes are separated into a series of comedic scenes or sketches ususally connected by some lose theme. Both shows can be pretty random with their comedy. The comedy in both can be kind of hit or miss but they're both more hit than miss, and the jokes that do land are quite funny.

The art styles are very differerent. Daily Lives has a more traditional look whereas Meganebu is very stylized and even though done by studio Deen, it's style is ripped straight from the SHAFT animation style. However, despite the different looks these are both soild random comedies.

Bradalee Bradalee says...

Both are ultra fast paced comedy shows that revolve around a group of high school boys. The focus in each is squarely on quick-fire comedy with little connection between episodes, instead choosing to run with a single theme each episode before moving on to a new one in the next. 

So if you're looking for some quick-fire, random comedy then you could do worse than either of these. Daily Lives of Highschool Boys is especially good.

Seitokai Yakuindomo

Seitokai Yakuindomo

Once a popular all girls' school, Ousai Private Academy is now co-ed due to declining birth rates. Takatoshi Tsuda, a boy newly attending Ousai solely because of the proximity to his house, is quickly forced to become the student council vice president and male representative of the school by president Shino Amakusa. Now looked upon as nothing more than a filthy pig by his female peers, Takatoshi must cope with learning about a whole new side of the opposite gender, hearing plenty of dirty sex and period jokes along the way!

Both are funny and can be perverted at times. Seitokai Yakuindomo is more sexual in the comedy but both are awesome hilarious anime that I would recommend.

Doomoo Doomoo says...

These two anime are very very similar in their style of comedy. However Seitokai focuses in on mainly sexual jokes while DLHSB is a bit more broad but still focuses on highschool students in and out of class.

I can't believe nobody recommended Daily Lives Of Higschool Boys. This one isn't really about romance, it's pure about comedy. When i watched Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun i immediately recognized the short and funny situatuions from Danshi Koukousei No Nichijou.

So if you really enjoyed the comedy in one of these animes, you will definitely like the other one!

Though i laughed harder in Daily Lives of Highschool boys.

kanamekakashi kanamekakashi says...

the main story line is different but both are just so funny! The humor gives a same feeling of «non-expactation-of-what-will-happen». Also, even if Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun is more oriented on a specific pair of caracters, we explore all the other caracters (like in Daily lives of high school boys)

Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei

Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei

Life is simply not worth living for down and out school teacher Itoshiki Nozomu. He has no hope of progress, no prospect of promotion, no chance at happiness… he is in despair! Even his name spells 'zetsubou' – 'despair', when compressed. But when the time comes to end it all, Itoshiki's attempted suicide on the first day of the new school year is foiled by relentlessly positive Fuura Kafuka. This saves Itoshiki long enough to meet his new class, and the quirky range of students under his care. Will Itoshiki Nozomu depress his students with his anguish? Or will Fuura show Zetsubou-sensei the joys of life and hope?

Both Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei and Daily Lives of High School Boys are slice of life comedies set in a high school enviroment with simmilar humor and randomness
