Naota Nanbada is a boring young boy who leads a boring life in a boring town. His older brother has left for America, and the closest he comes to any excitement is when his deadbeat dad has too much sake. But things change one day when a bizarre girl zooms up to him on a scooter and smacks him in the face with her guitar. What's more, once Naoto returns home he discovers that this strange woman has arrived ahead of him and moved in! Not only does she constantly engage in perverted activities with Naota's father and flirt with the young man himself, but she also claims to be an alien who is searching for the ‘Pirate King.' Now, Naota must learn to live with this new intruder, deal with an odd government agent who sports exceptionally large eyebrows and the mysterious Medical Mechanica, and come to terms with the fact that there are a variety of robots and weapons emerging out of his head - amongst other things. Perhaps boring wasn't so bad after all...

Satoshi and Arumi have been friends since early childhood, but now Arumi's family is moving to Hokkaido, deeply upsetting her long-time friend. However, when Arumi's grandfather accidentally breaks the pelican statue atop his restaurant, the duo find their world turned upside down and not quite as they left it. From a fairy tale kingdom, to kung fu China, to the prehistoric age and everything in between, Arumi and Satoshi can't quite seem to figure out where they are, or better yet, how they can manage to get home to their own Abenobashi Shoutengai!
Wild, crazy, can't tell what's gonna be shown next. Both Abenobashi and Ping Pong Club offer situational comedy that is sometimes over the top but not as overly offensive as some fanservice type shows. Abenobashi offers more of a solid storyline, but the comedic style of both shows can be considered similar.
Hanada Ichiro is an abrasive young man who lives with his hag of a mother, his father the drunk, his grandfather the absent-minded, and his older sister. One sunny afternoon, Ichiro's rebellious antics finally take a turn for the worse, causing him to get hit by a car. When he awakens, he discovers that he has the ability to see ghosts, and converse with them (much to his dismay, since they all seem to want helpful favors). Will Ichiro's newfound ability be a blessing, or just another annoyance in his life?
When you talk about just plain crude humor, I don't think any anime can beat the ping pong club but Hanada comes close. The family of Hanada reminds me a lot of the simpsons... with the drunk father at the helm... and Handa is kinda like the super naughty, mischievious Bart Simpson. Hilarity ensues as Hanada tries to fulfill the wishes of the ghosts who will not leave him alone until they get what they want out of him. I personally liked Hanada a lot better than ping pong club... I mean talk about weird taste.... at least Hanada is more comedic and light hearted. Hanada has "heart" (as I like to call it) as opposed to the ping pong club which is just straight crude and oftentimes disgusting humor....kinda like those shows on comedy central where the actors burp, fart and do all these other nasty things on the show to try to get the audience to laugh... but if you are just looking for a good laugh, I think both of these shows will accomplish the job.
