Sket Dance

Sket Dance

At the Kaimei Academy three classmates, “Bossun” Yusuke, “Onihime” Himeko and “Switch” Kazuyoshi have established their own club: the Academy Activity Support Club. Known as Sket-Dan for short, the trio accept any odd jobs that come their way in the name of maintaining a peaceful life for the students of the academy. Whether identifying a graffiti artist, fixing the school gym shed or helping a new student fend off his childhood bullies, no task is too big and no job too small for the Sket-Dan.

Both anime have similar humour and great characters. Both both follow and subvert character tropes during their run and both have rather fast paced humour. Albeit Sket dance does have slower moments

Both shows are about a couple of students doing random stuff. they are both very funny and if you enjoy one of them the other will also be enjoyable. The one difference is that Plastic nee-san is about 3 girls and Daily Lives of High School Boys is about a group of boys.

Both are plotless, Made up of short segments. They are about the hilarious happenings within their groups of friends. The both extreamly wacky but in a kind of relatable way. They both contain some pop culture references (although much more in Joshiraku).

Azumanga Daioh

Azumanga Daioh

Ten-year-old genius Chiyo, animal-loving Sakaki, loudmouth Tomo, athletic Kagura, weight-conscious Yomi and dim-witted Osaka are six friends who share laughs, good times, and a high school homeroom. With scary (and sometimes perverted) teachers, school festivals, penguin suits and general hilarity abounding, you can be sure that there's never a dull day in the life of one of these students!

Both animes are about the everyday lives of a group of high school students, one is focused mostly on a group of girls, whereas Daily Lives of High School Boys is focused mainly on a group of boys.  Both series are hilarious, realistic, and easy going.  If you liked this anime, you will love the other!

School life parody comedies that take fairly mundane situations and then take them to absurd extremes. These are both shows that draw the comedy out of ordinary situations. Neither show has a particular plot, but instead episodes are all made up of mostly standalone comedy sketches. 

Tonari is short the episodes only contain one sketch. Daily Lives of High School Boys are full length episodes and each episode contain multiple sketches. Daily Lives also has a larger cast and lots of recurring jokes. Tonari is much more humble with most of the comedy being generated in the minds of the characters. It also has a small cast of two characters.

However, both shows are good examples of random comedy. If you like one then check out the other.
