I came across this while being bored and having not many nice anime's too watch. So I hit YouTube to look for some and came across a "Top 10 Comedy Anime" video. While this show wasn't on the list, I saw a comment that mentioned it. The replies and were nothing but high praise for the show and that was enough for me to give it a try.
If you're looking for high drama, love triangles, and a serious plot then you're at the wrong place. Seinfeld is called, "The show about nothing." That's basically what this is. It's a sketch comedy and pretty much diary entries. There is no plot, just whacky times. At first I got kind of annoyed but I accepted this format and loved it. With no story, it makes me feel like I can actually rewatch it and not be spoiled. Huge bonus.
Nothing special but nothing bad. Everything is really smooth. Colors look great as well. If anything, that's what you kind of expect with something so ordinary with a title of "Daily Lives of High School Boys". One major annoyance is that not every character has a face. It's really annoying having someone talk and not see their face. Although I love this show, this is one sin that cannot be forgiven. I mean even many recurring characters don't have faces. Sure it's okay for just simple one off characters. However, it's mostly characters that show up a handful of times. I mean at least have some basic models. Really lazy, IMO.
Voice actors were great. The range they have is amazing. They can go from deep and serious tones to something light and humerous. The opening and ending songs are great to listen to. Both songs are a fun contrast. The opening is fast-paced and dramatic while the ending is silly. The opening's dramatic feel sets you in the mood for something just as dramatic only for you to find out the show is just Daily Life stuff. The ending is light-hearted, silly, and funny which is what the show does feel like.
They're all amazing and by far the best thing about the show. Everyone brings in their own sense of humor to the show. Not much to talk about in terms of development because there is none. There's no need or reason for them to improve. It's totally fine by me given that it's a sketch comedy. However, they really grew on me.
One of the best animes I've ever watch. Despite no plot and decent animations, there's something that makes me loves this show. Great characters can really make or break a show. It makes me wish that I could redo high school and go with guys like them. The best way to describe the comedy is awkward comedy, which I think is the funniest, and slapstick. Slapstick tends to be cheap humor but is done in appropriate levels here. If you want something really hilarious then this should be at the top of your list. Although it's called "Daily Lives" it's nothing close to ordinary.
I watched a lot of comedy anime, but I have never laughed at one as much as I did when watching this. My stomach hurt from laughing so much, literally. I think people around me thought I was on something! Seriously, if you want to laugh, this is a must watch.
Daily Lives of High School Boys is one of the most hilarious anime that I have watched in my anime watching life time. This anime is about the daily live of high school boys that do the most random of things that will kill you with laughter so make sure you are not eating or drinking anything while you watching this. The jokes in this anime never get old, boring and repetitive.
The animation of this anime brings out the humour of the funny moments especially the facial expressions but there is one major problem thats disturbing it is the fact that the main characters siblings do not have any eyes and it takes time to get used to that.
The sound is something that also helps with the humour and some of these even got stuck in my head. The opening song isn't anything special but the ending is something that I loved and something I just had to download.
The characters have their own unique personalities, for example you have the over thinker, the idiot etc.
This anime has no story to it .So If you looking for plot you are going to have to look further as it only focuses on humour.
Overall this anime is something addictive that you cry when you realise you have no more episodes to watch that you end up rewatching the series
Possibly the funniest anime I've ever seen. Maybe it was how natural it seemed or just how similar some of the rediculous scenarios that were on the show were to the real experiences I've had in high school, maybe a mixture of both. Either way its unique comedic style made it a very enjoyable anime to watch and its ending was beautifully done.
Story: Just comedic fun
It's pretty obvious that there is no actual plot in this show, it is just teenagers doing random stuff and making jokes out of them. It nicely portrays the childish creativy we had in our teenage lives(i'm a teen lol) and are mostly just "side stories", nothing much to talk about here.
To the meat of the show, the jokes.
Honestly, it's a mixed bag. Some jokes are hilarous but some are just yawn-out-loud boring, because the jokes are mostly very slow and draggy(sometimes they even tell you when to laugh). So you basically get a random mix of good and bad in every episode, it kinda relies on your "luck" whether or not you'll LOL or fall asleep.
Good jokes consists of alot of shenanigans and the characters fooling around in various hilariously clichèd ways, slapstick comedy.
The bad ones are usually just them talking...and talking...and talking,,,and ZZZZZZZZZZZZZ
*snort* .......oh...oh yeah the review...i'm sorry....
Well...the animations looks pretty fluid, nothing spectacular here
The art style is pretty simplistic for the time that it is made.
They are simply a cast of stereotypes, funny but just bland and shallow(and somewhat generic) stereotypes.
There is a pretty colourful cast of characters, you can pick your favourite one from them, but most(at least IMO) are forgettable.
The soundtracks sounds decent, most of them are good, but there's only a handful of it.
Overall: Don't get me wrong, i did enjoy watching this as light entertainment, it's not a bad comedy at all. It's the kind of series where if you skipped 10 episodes, it won't confuse you nor effect anything, and it works nicely as a time waster. And nothing more than that, just watch this to waste time.
What's good:+Half of the jokes are extremely enjoyable, +Decent characters
What's bad:-Draggy jokes, -The other half of the jokes are really boring
