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.

Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun

Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun

Chiyo Sakura, a high school girl who fell in love with the unrefined boy schoolmate Umetaro Nozaki, decides to be courageous one day and asks him out. Her feelings weren't conveyed properly, and before she knew it she ends up helping a particular job of his as an assistant... The series is a shojo manga boy comedy which centers around Nozaki, a high school boy that is a popular shojo manga artist, and has a story woven by very individualistic characters.

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)

Ailly Ailly says...

Shamelessly lampshading and subverting the tropes of their genre, both Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun and Nichibros are pureblood comedies that will definitely make you laugh. They rely on short, somewhat interconnected gags, taking typical storylines and situations and giving it juuust a little twist. If one of these two made you snort milk (or any other liquid of your choice) out of your nose, you should check out the other!

Both animes are mainly meant to make the viewer laugh. Instead of focusing on having an intresting adventure, both of these animes focus more on making comedic scences that don't really contribute to the story.

Cute High Earth Defense Club LOVE!

Cute High Earth Defense Club LOVE!

Teenage boys are notoriously lazy, and the members of Binan High School's Earth Defense Club are no exception. Their definition of “earth defense” is bumming around all day at the local bathhouse. But when a pink wombat appears out of thin air and begs the boys to help him save the planet, even the idlest high schoolers jump to action. Watch the magical boys transform and save the earth with the power of LOVE!

We have hundreds upon hundreds of high school comedy shows featuring a cast of cute girls, but rarely do we get one with a cast of cute boys. Daily Lives and Binan Koukou share extremely similar comedy; it's no surprise either, as they both have the same director behind the wheel. Daily Lives features "normal" high school boys while Binan Koukou centers around magical high school boys, but the jokes, characters, and overall atmosphere of not taking anything seriously are all the same. And amusing enough, there's an episode of Daily Lives that jokes about the lack of magical boys in the world. Fans of one will most certainly appreciate the other.

Noriko Noriko says...

Both shows are based on high school life, and both shows focus on a group of teenage male protagonists.

Both shows have a similar random kind of humor, so if you liked one of these 2 shows, you will most likely like the other.

GabiiTachibana GabiiTachibana says...

Both show the hysterical and ridiculous antics and thought processes of Japanese high school boys.

Shirokuma Shirokuma says...

They both have a similar humor and parody different aspects of life, anime-clichés and just plain randomness. They are both abouth weird guys with strange personalities doing strange stuff for pretty much no reason.

A sort of random humor dominates in both the shows.

Haven't You Heard? I'm Sakamoto

Haven't You Heard? I'm Sakamoto

Just who is Sakamoto? He's enigmatic. He's clever. He's dashing. No challenge is too great and no cause is too small for Sakamoto. Girls love him, guys hate him for it, and despite efforts to humiliate him, Sakamoto is flawlessly able to emerge from the fray, even cooler than ever. Who knows what Sakamoto is going to do next? Whatever it is, it will be fabulous!

Despite only having one episode out, the similarities between Sakamoto desu ga and Daily lives of high school boys are clear: they're meant to make you laugh. One episode is presented in three or so bits, all making a joke. More or less.

Beebo Beebo says...

Both are segmented in similar formats. I think if you enjoy the comedic style of one you'll like the other. Both are high school themed. 

AngelBeatsYui AngelBeatsYui says...

These shows are both random comedies following the stories of a boy/group of boys in small comedic skits in which I personally laughed at, a lot. If you liked the fun characters in one of these shows and want to take something slightly less seriously then either of these shows would be perfect, if you liked these aspects of one of these shows then you might want to check the other...I don't think you'll be disappointed xx

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!

CommanderKarasu CommanderKarasu says...

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. 

ZetsubouKaiji ZetsubouKaiji says...

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.
