Both Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou and Asobi Asobase are filled with school-based comedy, deliviered in short sub-episodic chunks.

Both have a very similar kind of comedy... I don't really know how to describe it... but, if you've watched one, you will hopefully be prepared for the characters' mixture of dark thoughts, sexual innuendos, and childish whims. They are also both set in schools with a wide and diverse range of characters.

Though one is all-male and the other all-female, they are surprisingly similar. You don't have to be female to enjoy Asobi Asobase, and you certainly don't have to be male to enjoy Daily Lives of High School Boys.

They're literally the same anime but genders reversed, both are super funny and i highly recommend both to anyone looking for something to at least get a giggle out of.

Both have the same concept, tone and setting. For both shows, episodes are divided into segments with distinct stories. They are non-linear but you'll find that there are several throw-backs to previous episodes. 

Both have a very tongue-in-cheek kind of humor and "episodes" (segments) can be mildly enjoying to right out histerical.

10/10 both shows are must watch.

Nichijou Episode 0

Nichijou Episode 0

Everyday life may be full of mundane occurrences, but hidden amongst the banality, you can always find something fun to brighten your day. While schoolgirl Mio attempts to cheer up Yuuko after her horrific test score, Nano desperately tries in vain to get the stubborn Hakase to take her medicine. No matter the situation, these innocent girls can make the most of every situation, even by doing cartwheels at a deserted railway station.

Has the same type of jokes and involves high school girls. Very funny, great timing, and dumb sense of humor.

Joshikousei

Joshikousei

A Japanese high school can be a strange place – or so it’s been told. However, as critical thinking is not the strong point of our freshman heroine Eriko, even the most outrageous stories are likely to come true. Going through the motions of high school life with a flair and panache that can only be gawked at, Eriko and her old and new friends set a new (low) standard for the typical coming of age drama. Cry with them as they fight adversity and learn the importance of trust and friendship in this cruel, cruel world; laugh with them during the incomparable happiness of the seemingly never-ending springtime of youth; and finally, laugh AT them, when they constantly manage to show their panties in public!

Both animes are comedies about high school girls in all girl schools doing silly things. They are both very funny.

Pop Team Epic

Pop Team Epic

Pipimi and Popuko are two typical 14-year-old girls with endless energy. Together, the two become the stuff of memes by having shootouts in space, traversing video game worlds, stealing an umbrella from [redacted], or other spastic misadventures.

Both of these have similar taste in humour though i prefer Asobi Asobase' of the two as it's a bit softer and easier to digest.

Ping Pong Club

Ping Pong Club

At Ina Middle School, the boys’ Ping Pong Club is seen as more of a joking matter than something worth the school's budget. It doesn't help that they are constantly being outdone by the girls' team and their fiery-tempered coach, as well the fact that most of the boys on the team care more about their ding dongs than their ping pongs! In a desperate attempt to motivate the team, the boys' coach introduces a hot-bodied female manager, who might just bring a sexual tension to the team that could work to their advantage. But can these hopeless boys improve their game enough to emerge victorious at the upcoming tournament and win the prize she's willing to give?

Asobi Asobase is basically the modern female version of the Ping Pong Club. The style of both art and comedy are nearly the same. If you are a fan of one, you should invest some time into the other.

at first glance these two anime have little in common but for the young female protagonists. and of course the close proximity of their airings.  anyways, even the animation is significantly different.

as to why I decided to compare the two, well let me elaborate. I will list them as they come to mind.

1. the male characters are completely ridiculous (not that the females aren't). it's just that they are absolutely insane. I think mamoru miyano's character is the least predictable, definitely. however, the others give him a run for his money. hiro shimono as the cop is great. 

2. the gap moe. ok the first episode of saga was a surprise. I mean, I had certain expectations based on the title and cover ovbiously.  so I expected something bad to happen. and I also kept thinking of the american film they are making a sequel of.  what I did not expect was the SPOILERidolSPOILER angle. and it's actually hard to choose SPOILER BEGIN between the rap battle, the electrified stage scene, and the metal gig, SPOILER END which of their shows is the best. good music in an anime is sublime.  as for asobi asobase, I just didn't expect those girls to be so hardcore. no one did I suppose. 

3. the op/ed.  the opening of saga is ridiculous and amazing. the ending of asobi asobase even more so.

4. was there a fourth reason? hmm perhaps that they are both just ridiculous in the sense that whenever you're about to take the shows seriously they completely undermine that feeling with something nonsensical.

I think that's it...after all the animation style and the sound are totally different, and the characters, despite my descriptions above, aren't very similar.  saga has a vague storyline but it's nonsensical like everything else. peace!

Nicknames Nicknames says...

Both are wacky comedies featuring high-schoolers doing crazy stuff, be it by trying some inventions or just to kill time. Also both shows seem to appeal to the same audience, even though Ueno-san wa Bukiyou is a bit more romance-oriented. So if you liked one give the other a try!

Ishida to Asakura

Ishida to Asakura

All Asakura wants is to graduate and become a high school teacher, but not for the reasons you’d expect: he wants to be surrounded by boobs - ample, bountiful boobs. But Asakura’s goal of mammary immersion won’t come easy, as his best friend Ishida is determined to open a flower shop with him once they graduate - that is, if they manage to graduate. Together, the duo navigates day-to-day school life with crass, whether they’re ogling their busty teacher, taking on part time jobs or dodging assassination attempts by robots.
