spokaneatitsbest spokaneatitsbest says...

Like One Punch Man, Saiki K is a very overpowered character who doesn't care too much about anything, and wants to just have a normal life  

Llamamoe Llamamoe says...

Both shows are an interesting spin on the "overpowered protagonist" premise, perhaps with Saiki Kusuo no Psi-nan taking the better approach, since Saiki treats his powers way more casually, while striving to live a normal life, where OPM has a sizeable "big bad of the week" syndrome.

wassimfh11 wassimfh11 says...

Both of these pieces of art were both satirical in their own ways. One-Punch Man is a well made satire about fighter animes while The disasrous life of Saiki K. is also a satirical piece about slice of life highschool animes. If you liked one you will definetly like the other

GrandfatherClock GrandfatherClock says...

theyre both parody shows with ridiculously op main characters who get kinda bored of their powers. One punch man is more actiony and saiki is more of a school life show, but in general if you liked one you will like the other

dcarbo dcarbo says...

there is alot of side charaters and they both have OP powers but at the end of they day they just want to eat the thing they love most 

KaiiKusumaki KaiiKusumaki says...

I'm a bit tired so I'll keep it short-

Saiki and Saitama are both super powerful and only a few people know how powerful they are. Even though they are described as OP, both the animes focus more on comedy. Ofcourse, they're also both funny.

JarbonCarbon JarbonCarbon says...

Both feature an overpowered main character. The difference in the shows is the way they differ in using their abilities and that difference can be entertaining. They are also both extremely funny and if you liked Saiki's comedy your sure to enjoy One Punch Man's

ShiranaiSan ShiranaiSan says...

Punch Man and Saiki are similar as to they feature a very strong main character. But just like in the both of them, the lead is just trying to live a very ordinary life. Saiki doesn't have the action of Punch Man, but contains a lot of very funny jokes in the same nature of the series. While Punch Man is outstanding in both jokes and it's action sequences.

FriendlyDemon FriendlyDemon says...

Does great power come with great responsibility? Watch both anime to see how the main characters deal with their OP powers and how they're just trying to live an ordinary life.

SuwaDeservedBetter SuwaDeservedBetter says...

They both include hilariously op-ed protagonists. The comedy of both shows is extremely dry. 

d1abolical d1abolical says...

One Punch Man and The Disastrous Life of Saiki K are very similar. They both feature an overpowered main character and are both parody/satire anime. The humor in both shows is very similar, especially in their take on overpowered characters and anime in general. They're both incredibly fun and hilarious to watch. If you like one, you'll likely enjoy the other. 

DarwinsGame DarwinsGame says...

Both main characters are generally disinterested but extremely powerful, leading to all sorts of drama and ridiculous predicaments. 

WackyBats WackyBats says...

I Think that if you like One Punch Man you would be entertained by Disastrous Life of Saiki too. They are both focused on a way too over powered main charater who find themselves in difficult situations. Though Saiki might be found at a highschool setting and One punch man fighting crime on the street, I still found them simular because they were both goofy and entertaining. If you watch one of these you'll be in for a laugh!

Katfee Katfee says...

Both include overpowered characters who don’t see it as same great thing and just go through their daily lives 

Gray0 Gray0 says...

The characters are very similar in way that you will be used to so it very enjoy able. The powers of the characters is also a factor that make it a good recommendation

biglittleorme biglittleorme says...

Both Anime's feature an evidently overpowered protagonist that is going through life with little to no passion. They have no hope of finding someone close to their level. Whilst One Punch tends to focus more on the amazing cinematography and well-drawn fight scenes S.K leans to the more comedic side of things that One Punch skims along with.

With both anime's the secondary characters are the bread and butter with both shows having wacky and interesting characters to put our main character into action.

feathertail38 feathertail38 says...

These are both comedy series poking fun at the usual tropes of the their respective genres, and I personally think they are both funny

CrowsHeather CrowsHeather says...

Similar to One Punch Man, Saiki is OP mc but doesn't focus on story. More of a comedy and different situations that he'd use his powers. If your not looking for something more involved like My Hero Academia, or makes you feel things like Hunter x Hunter, Saiki's your deal.

sweetSword sweetSword says...

Both animes portray a super strong character who is bored of this bland world and nothing seems exciting to them. Both shows are of comedy genre but you'll find the comedy element more in The Disastrous life of Saiki K, and the action element more in One Punch Man. However One punch man follows a storyline, TDLSK is a kind of gag anime i.e, you can watch it anytime to refresh your mind.

MyHomeworkCanWait MyHomeworkCanWait says...

Both series have similar comedy and character vibes. Both MC's of the series just don't give a shit about how OP they are. 😂 

Kaiten456 Kaiten456 says...

Both follow the lives of over powered protagonists while one punch man mostly an action shounen, The disastrous life of Saiki K is more of a slice of life. Both are very light hearted in some scenes while one punch man does have some heavier scenes, which of course, is because it is an action shounen. I'd recommend both of these bidirectionally if you want to give them a watch

tyr tyr says...

Both share the same dry flippant sense of humour with an overpowered protagonist just trying to get by in life.

mikhamar005 mikhamar005 says...

Hosestly both are wholesome and amazing. Very instresting but also always wants people to watch even more from them.

Twukaj Twukaj says...

Deadpan, over the top, op protagonist who just wants to get through the day, but surrounded by whack friends.

azarathmz1 azarathmz1 says...

Really powerful guys who want to get through the day and sleep. A lot of comedy in between and saving the world. Both really worth watching. They may become your comfort anime. 

MoonDassy MoonDassy says...

Both animes have strong MCs and comedy that focuses around these MCs wanting to live their life normally.

complicatedfish complicatedfish says...

Both of the protaganists are over-powered. Both shows are also comedic. The protaganists also have a similar goal: world peace.

Rexrick Rexrick says...

Both anime have a lot of dry, but good humor. If you enjoyed watching one of these pieces I would defenitely recommend u enjoy the other.

Jaxybobaxy Jaxybobaxy says...

Both offer witty commentary on classic anime tropes by following a protagonist who is too powerful and doesn't want to be.

UnMinded UnMinded says...

I won't make this too long, even though because of the fucking 100 words limit, but if you like both or one, then watch the other, respectively. Now, if you have watched both, I would highly suggest the ogs; Overlord, Reincarnated as a Slime, I'm Quitting Heroing, and lastly arifureta. 

NolansWitch NolansWitch says...

Both funny af man. I love the animation to.

Saiki is just a trip man. I be laughing at the sacrcastic stuff he be saying man.

Seawooo Seawooo says...

Both are about overpowered people who have lost interest in practically everything due to how powerful they are, and both are comedies!

Sim0na Sim0na says...

Both of their main characters are completely over-powered and sorounded by people who either recognize their talent or are entirely oblivious to it

Misoony Misoony says...

-Both are about overpowered main characters trying to go about their daily lives

-Both are comedies

-Both have a friendly athmosphere to them

BlueBirdie BlueBirdie says...

Two overly powerful individuals that are quite simple-minded and attract all types of crazy people and weirdos. The stories have very different scenarios and characters, but have similar humor and vibes. Saitama is bored with life and Saiki wants the boring life. The Saiki Kusuo's series makes fun of anime and manga stereotypes, being ironic, absurd and metalinguistic. One Punch man also plays with the absurd, but is more full of action and more logical.

The Daily Life of the Immortal King

The Daily Life of the Immortal King

As a cultivation genius who has achieved a new realm every two years since he was a year old, Wang Ling is a near-invincible existence with prowess far beyond his control. But now that he’s sixteen, he faces his greatest battle yet - Senior High School.

1AndOnlyUnacountable 1AndOnlyUnacountable says...

both center on a stoic, largly speachless overpowered protagonist who desires to live a normal school life.

Clarinet8008 Clarinet8008 says...

Both main characters are super over-powered, both anime's share similar comedy and want to keep their power a secret from their peers

AshleyB AshleyB says...

The protagonist in both anime, Kusuo Saiki and Wang Ling, both have near limitless powers and the ability to end the world in an instant. To try and prevent the distruction of the world as they know it, they both use a limiter of sorts to limit their power and help control their abilities.

While Kusuo Saiki lives in a mundane world where very few have the gift (or in his opinion, curse) of psychic powers, Wang Ling lives in a world where having powers is normal, just not nearly as strong as his. Neither want their overwhelming power to become know to those around them and try to appear more normal in the worlds eyes.

Both characters have a similar, emotionless personality trait, although for slightly different reasons, and they act in similar ways for the majority of the anime and appear indifferent about events which would usaly bother others.

Satoru101 Satoru101 says...

The guy doesn't care about anything as long as his friends don't get hurt, Although the cause is different in both it is still pretty good. It is quite the comedy as well.

SpyxHunter SpyxHunter says...

Both of them are about an overwhelming powerful Mc who want a simple life. Also, both of them can't fall in love, since Saiki just sees the inside of everyone and Wang Ling can't show his feelings, otherwise the world will perish. They both are also obsessed with a certain type of food (Saiki loves coffee jelly and Wang Ling loves dry noodles). They both also have classmates who want to be friends with them, when they don't really want to be friends back. Wang Ling seems to be a more serious version of Saiki. Wang Ling is Chinese, while Saiki is Japanese and both of them are on Netflix.

AgentAndrew0 AgentAndrew0 says...

They have the same feel. Overpowered character with incompetent parents trying to hide his abilities from the world and needs to use a device/talisman to keep said powers from causing mass destruction.

ShadowNinja365 ShadowNinja365 says...

Both have op mc

bothmc have a girl chasing them 

both are in high school 

both mc families know about their power

both mc try to hide their power

atkuymas atkuymas says...

Both about 2 boys with super powers, overall both humourous animes, I suppose one is a Chinese anime and ther other a Japanese anime, not that this matters though.

Ohmylegitdays Ohmylegitdays says...

both about apathetic op mc's with an obsession over a specific food that go to school and learn about making friends.

wowimsatan wowimsatan says...

Both of these shows have a vastly OP main character in a comedy setting at school trying to keep their OPness on the down low.

BravenN BravenN says...

Both have OP main characters who are hiding their true powers. Both go to schools where they accidentally attracted the cutest girl in school.

Max4444 Max4444 says...

Both have OP main characters trying to live a normal school life and kinda failing at it. They are both comedy anime, but at the end The Daily Life of the Immortal King does get more serious while Saiki K stays pretty light hearted throughout the entire series.

AnimeDemon4962 AnimeDemon4962 says...

They both have an op mc just trying to live a normal life, tackling the struggles of being unordinary and 'too powerful' beings.

Caveicu Caveicu says...

Personally I think Saiki K is just a better version of The Daily Life of the Immortal King, and it doesn't have romance.

Litoleo Litoleo says...

If you want a stupidly over powered MC that just wants a normal life then yes these two are a match. Both saiki and Wang Ling just want not to stand out but both their friends just make it so difficult

komishouko komishouko says...

The protagonists of both are very similar, VERY SIMILAR. They want nothing to do with their god level powers and just want to live a normal life. Due to them being born with these extreme powers they are being kept with a handicap as you can't fully get rid of those extreme powers. But as soon as these handicaps are taken away the world loses its balance. We also have the stereotypical popular girl who's perfect and pretty in every way, the 2 other friends who play an important role but aren't really cared for in their world as their either outcasts or average.

SaberOfShadows SaberOfShadows says...

Both anime have an overpowered protagonist who technically doesn't flaunt his powers and is usually pretty chill!

Anonymous0t0 Anonymous0t0 says...

its similour in many ways like the main character is overpower and the other character is simiolur to eachother

fengqiuhua fengqiuhua says...

both have op mc, have talking animals, lack of emotions from mc, and an uninterest in making friends or romantic relationships.

shakti19 shakti19 says...

YUP MAKES SENSE, BOTH THE SHOWS HAVE AN ABSOLUTE POWERHOWER OF A MAIN CHARACTER. BOTH ARE STRONG AND INTROVERTED . HOWEVER ONLY THE MAIN CHARACTER IS THAT ONE SIMILARITY B/W THESE 2 SHOWS. BUT BOTH ARE GOOD SHOWS AND FUN TO WATCH.... 

HOPE IT HELPS

MitTheNoob MitTheNoob says...

I don't think these two could be any more similar. Both are awesome in every way. I personally life The Daily Life better but they're both amazing. Same concepts except Saiki is like the only one with god abilities. 

Insidious4 Insidious4 says...

So, Daily Life and Saiki K are practically multiverse versions of the same anime. They both have a pretty, little miss perfect who is vying for the love of everyone in school and tries to awe the MC but ends up falling in love. They both have friends who sorta just assumed they were the MC's friends despite the MC not wanting friends. There is a super driven class rep, a poor girl who has to work all the time, Wang Ling's parents hate each other like Saiki's did in ep 1, the MC is leagues above everyone else in power, to the extent that if they wanted to alter the universe or rewrite history they could do it effortlessly, they both love a food(coffee jelly vs crispy noodles), they both have funny 4th wall breaks and tons of real world humor(like when the demon simulation ooverloads and the demon says it was all because he was running 3060 magic lamps rather than 3090 lamps or when Saiki explains that anime hair exists because he wanted to normalize his own hair, and inadvertently changed the course of human evolution so that wacky, colorful hair is normal), both anime have a protagonist who can read minds, both protagonists rarely ever talk to people, both MC's are only limited by their desire not to destroy the world and have to limit their power, and the list goes on. If you want to watch the same story told in another universe, then this anime is perfect. 

BlueBirdie BlueBirdie says...

Two teenagers that are god-like powerful and quite emotionless. They also attract the school goddess and have very weird friends. Both series also make fun of their respective genre stereotypes, even if Saiki K. is more obvious about it and explores the absurd in a more open way.

kumoyume kumoyume says...

even though they are from different countries these two anime focus on the main characters being extremely overly powerful where they just want to have a normal life such as making friends, attending school, keeping their friends safe and trying to keep the world from ending.

Both Saiki and Mob experience the struggles of having powerful psychic powers.  Saiki tries to hide the fact he is a psychic from his friends, while Mob tries to keep his powers under control.  The comedy from both anime stems from their respective problems

AMhuman AMhuman says...

Both Mob Psycho 100 and The Disastrous Life of Saiki K. are about characters with psychic powers and both are humorous/comedies, but not to a point where they become annoying.

NicetyL NicetyL says...

They're both hilaious and slice-of-life

They also both have chraracters with psychic powers

JarbonCarbon JarbonCarbon says...

Both animes feature a psychic as the main character and both shows provide hilarious comedy. Saiki K. is on netflix so it's easy to watch, if you've seen Mob Psycho then definitely give Saiki K. a watch.

savav savav says...

Do you love overpowered apathetic physic boys? Then, you will love these animes. 

The main plots of both are different as Mob's story focuses on his attempts at making friends, while Saiki's story mainly focuses on him doing his best to avoid his friends. I like Saiki K. more only because I am a big fan of dry humor and tsundere main characters. Mob is a sweetheart and I love him, but Saiki's inability to stop making friends is SO good. 

SetsGoUp SetsGoUp says...

The style of humour is dry, but consistent and there is a lot of action intertwinned with strong, progressive story arcs

LuckyBerserker LuckyBerserker says...

Both Mob Psycho 100 and The Disastrous Life of Saiki K. are comedies about characters who struggle with their powerful psychic powers

EverythingFreezing EverythingFreezing says...

Both are about high schoolers who have psychic powers and are apathetic because of having such powers.

Justiciar99 Justiciar99 says...

Both are filled with hilarious gags, and the MCs are similarly unemotional and deadpan. Both are extremely powerful psychics. 

TooTiredToSleep TooTiredToSleep says...

Both of these animes gave me a feeling of stupid joy. These are the type of shows that make you stupidly giggle to yourself. The fandoms of both of these shows are also really laid back and funny. Both of these shows will give you a feeling of joy. These shows have a lovable plot and even more lovable characters. Both of these animes are amazing and while they are silly they are really well done. 

notlucinda notlucinda says...

similar type of comedy and portrayal of characters. The characters in MP100 just have a feel about them that i can't explain.

Seawooo Seawooo says...

Both animes are about overpowered teen boys with incredible psychic powers, Both are comedies, and both are as emontionless as eachother (Mob Psycho goes into this further though)

BlueBirdie BlueBirdie says...

The two protagonists are overpowered teenagers trying to live a simple and calm life. Their powers are also kinda similar, but their personalities are very different and the feels of each series is quite different.

Sim0na Sim0na says...

Both main characters have very powerful psychic powers which they need to keep under control and/or hide from the people around them. A lot of the comedy in both shows stems from the protagonist trying to keep their powers in check in front of their friends. I think if you like one of them, you'll also like the other.

sea4 sea4 says...

Both main characters are pyshics that are super overpowered and have the ability do destroy worlds, both animes are extremely comedic and funny

They're both sci-fi genre and they're both physics. Mob is way better though because they have some insanse fights. Saiki is more of comedy.

Sonoy Sonoy says...

One punch man because this anime is almost similar to Saiki K, except one's about a school struggling to cope with the people around him, and the other is about a guy who is being a hero for "fun"

Ammabee12 Ammabee12 says...

Both have quirky overpowered characters and the humor is similar. The main characters of both are awkward teenagers with a misfit crew. In both shows, the MC's solve high school problems while trying to save their friends. 

Haven't You Heard? I'm Sakamoto

Haven't You Heard? I'm Sakamoto

In Gakuban Prefectural High School, there's a boy who just might be the coolest human being alive - a first-year student with style and finesse that solves every problem with ease, and looks absolutely fabulous in the process. Women adore him, children idolize him, and delinquents are frustrated by their inability to defeat him. The teachers can't outwit him, and when there's an animal in trouble, even the raging winds can't hold him back! Whether he's thwarting bullies, sword fighting with an angry bee, or eluding the unwanted attentions of a smitten middle-aged lady, he will always succeed and he will always look unimaginably cool while doing it. Haven't you heard? He's Sakamoto!

Both the protagonists are so OP that the animes sometime cross right over to ridiculous territory. Another similarity would be the delinquents with hearts of gold and of course, the beautiful but annoying girls fawning over the MCs.

Superstars111 Superstars111 says...

Both anime follow an over-the-top comedy style that's absolutely hilarious. Sakamoto is so popular, cool, and stylish that he can find a way out of almost any problem. However, he is limited by the fact that he is still a mere human (technically).

Sakamoto is so popular, cool, and stylish that he can find a way out of almost any problem. However, he is limited by the fact that he is still a mere human (technically). Everybody loves him, and he doesn't seem to mind being the center of attention.

Saiki Kusou is almost the opposite. He has psychic powers that can help him out of any situation, but he desires to be alone and out of the spotlight, which ends up being the very thing that sets his limitations.

Despite having very different main characters, both anime have a similar approach to their style of comedy. Their situations and solutions are ridiculous, but they stick to the rules they've set for their own show (usually), which keeps it from becoming a random collection of nonsense.

Yahikoo Yahikoo says...

It is both in a highschool.

The main characters are both op and good in everything.

Cupidsbow22 Cupidsbow22 says...

The story's are really similar and the characters personalities are really similar saiki just has super powers they both quite honestly just want to live a normal life but the world just seems to always have different plans

They are very different and also very similar animes, with characters that are very talented and powerful, living an everyday, chaotic but simple life.

Tanaka-kun is Always Listless

Tanaka-kun is Always Listless

Adapted from the popular web manga series published by Square Enix, this unconventional, surrealist comedy follows an exhausted high school boy who, despite multiple attempts from his friends, still manages to spectacularly… sleep. Much to the chagrin of the energetic (at times bossy) Ohta, Tanaka is often found in a blissful state of lethargy, possessing the ability to doze off in any situation, especially in mid-sentence!

Reasons you might like Tanaka-kun is Always Listless...

flannelbi flannelbi says...

They're very similar in terms of the protag's motivations, Tanaka wanting to be listless and Saiki wanting to be as average as possible, but with an interesting cast of friends to disrupt that.

Wyvern107 Wyvern107 says...

Both give off a similar vibe, being comedies in which the protagonist has special inhuman trait (psychic powers for Saiki, inhuman laziness for Tanaka), and attempts to survive their daily school life while being plagued with "friends", when really, the protagonist just wants to be left alone. The two anime are very different, but both give me similar vibes, and will leave you going from episode to episode like there's no tomorrow. So, if you liked one, I highly reccommend checking out the other.

DarwinsGame DarwinsGame says...

Both main characters are (or at least want to be) passive viewers in the weirdness going on around them, but they're dragged into it anyway. Both are based around school-aged characters and a school setting with mundane issues getting wildly out of hand. Highly recommend!

RainbowPuffBall RainbowPuffBall says...

Both are wholesome casual shows that are easy to watch. Eventhough Saiki K. is heavier on the gags and comedy, and Tanaka-kun is more of a softer feel-good show, they both have charachers that you get attatched to and root for annd want to get to know.

KeanuBriefs KeanuBriefs says...

It is the second most funniet anime I have ever seen, It's MC was one of the best ones I've seen. Saiki is totally different from those cliche mcs. Lastly, he is the reason behind the whole anime logic, from people having colorful hair to character's injuries heling fast, its all because of Saiki.

GandalfVirus GandalfVirus says...

Both charcters are chill. The same can't be said for the rest of the show though. Tanaka-kun is a chill show where Saiki K is not as chill.

ToeBeans405 ToeBeans405 says...

The main characters are a bit similar, in the way that both Tanaka and Saiki will both go to a lot of effort to just have some peace and quiet. The tone of each show is quite different, but if you like one protaganist you may enjoy the other.

BlueBirdie BlueBirdie says...

Even though Tanaka-kun doesn't have any powers (except, maybe, falling asleep easily), he is also a shy and introverted high-schooler that attract crazy people.

Maxinevernight Maxinevernight says...

Its got the chill slice of life type vibes but its less hectic and the comedy is a little different. Still highly reccomend!

They are both light comedies and have both are short to watch

you can also become hooked easily

both if the mcs are both overpowered, serious and find joy in one thing but though they are p they are scared of some things

looking at their faces and demeanour people may be intimidated by them 

both can be found on Netflix 

LamiaNymph LamiaNymph says...

Both are comedy's with short segments that get straight to point. They both also have likable characters. If you like one, you might as well give the other a try.

NeoSun NeoSun says...

both entertaining and refreshing misunderstood and powerful leads, one of my favs as well. also short and set for another season. definitely worth the watch!

Drpx1 Drpx1 says...

If your looking at having a laugh then these both work. While the Disastrous life of Saiki K is more fleshed out and has many episodes, the way of the house husband also has a similar line of comedy.

Aalthough if you get picky over animation, the way of the househusband, may lessen the enjoyability if youv'e watched Saiki K. However its still interesting as a follow up minus a world with psychic powerss of course.

attractivegirl attractivegirl says...

I agree with this becaue these 2 are very similar. Plus the fact that the comdey are twins and its funny and cool to watch so pick this show up c:

They're both pretty light-hearted and have a variety of characters. Similar genres and funny shenanigans that happen in the protagonist's everyday life.

If you like the chaos of Saiki K then I recommend the way of the house husband as they are both really chaotic. Although this anime might not have the best animation the bad quality adds to the silliness and charm of the show.

He is admired by both students and teachers alike for his calligraphy and he even has his own fan club known as the Handa Force. Unfortunately for Sei, who has a unique talent for misreading situations, his extreme anxiety has convinced him that everyone in school hates him! The more people fawn over him, the more he is convinced that he is being bullied. The members of the Handa Force are equally clueless, misreading every word and action from Sei as something grand or heroic and completely unaware that their daily attempts to guard him from the school's various weirdos make Sei think that they are dangerous stalkers. Will anyone ever figure out what's really going on here, or will this cycle of craziness continue until graduation?

It's  funny  and   entertaining  like Saiki  in  its  own  way.  Especially  because  the  humour   is  unexpected  and  not  cliche  like  other  anime.

Oddly these 2 have similar vibes , mc doesn't want to interact with others for different reasons and everyone misunderstands what the mc is doing which accidentally makes them more loved,scary or popular and both are funny.

good characters and a good time .

hanako37 hanako37 says...

Both light hearted, slice of life anime, with plenty of gags and comedy. Refeshing new ideas that are anything but cliche. Following antisocial MC's and characters that always cause them toubles, these two anime are both well executed and easy to follow. If you want to watch a show that doesn't require you bingeing to understand more: these two are the way to go. Leaving you comfortably at the end of each episode without forsaking the entertainment.

Both revolve around high schoolers and are hilarious

I started watching these both at the same time, suprisingly enough. both the MC's give that "Leave me alone" vibe. While they trounce through life trying not to attract any attention. They are also quite funny. (I just wanted to +1)

It is very cool and i like both highly recomend why does this need to be 100 characters well anyway both are good and cool and very yes and absolutely good and good how is this not 100 characters yet i think the character counter must be broken anyway as I was saying both are about people doing thing and yes good so pls watch

Handa-kun and the Disastrous Life of Saiki K both have the same type of humor and plot. Some of the characters are very similar.

KADIDULOVE KADIDULOVE says...

Both animes revolve around main characters that have a misrepresentation of their situations in the world. Saiki K. believes his powers are burdensome and wishes he could be "normal" even though his powers are what make him Saiki K. Handa believes that everyone is out to get him so he refuses to face his fears by pushing his classmates away. He wishes to change but his awkward stoic nature makes him the Handa everyone knows and loves. 

Daily Lives of High School Boys

Daily Lives of High School Boys

Join Tadakuni, Hidenori and Yoshitake as they undergo the trials and tribulations of life in high school. Each episode presents the boys and their classmates in unique situations that you may or may not have faced in high school yourself! You'll laugh! You'll cry! (But hopefully laugh more.) You'll be astounded by the zany antics of the Sanada High School community!

Both are comedy centric series that mainly focuses on a group of 3 high school students.

They have simalar characters archetypes and will most likely give you a few chuckles. 

snuffywicket17 snuffywicket17 says...

They both are light-hearted school comedies. They feature high school students with high school humor. With both having characters that over-exaggerate emotions for comedic effect, they are quite similar. 

lucilutia lucilutia says...

Both comedic anime with some absurd humor. Disastrous Life has a more fast-paced flow, but manageable if you enjoyed Daily Life of Highschool Boys.

Peta7382 Peta7382 says...

Daily Lives of Hogh School Boys and The Disastrous Life of Saiki K both have absurd humour with each episode being like a small skit

TheCautionBandi TheCautionBandi says...

Both Daily Lives and Saiki K have short skits in each episode that are hilarious. Funniest shows out there.

moonstruckhistoria moonstruckhistoria says...

Both have incredibly aware senses of humor and see into high school lives xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

blissinapricot blissinapricot says...

Both these comedic animes are gags based on the school life of a male protagonist. The characters in both the animes speak to the audience in a way of being aware that they're in an anime. Although the pacing of The Disastrous Life of Saiki K. is faster, they both do not have a specific plot yet present the personalities of the characters in each episode.

Assassination Classroom

Assassination Classroom

A humorous and action-packed story about a class of misfits who are trying to kill their new teacher – an alien octopus with bizarre powers and super strength! The teacher has just destroyed the moon and is threatening to destroy the earth – unless his students can destroy him first. What makes things more complicated is that he's the best teacher they've ever had!

kearma kearma says...

This anime has the same feel for me as Saiki Kusuo no Psi Nan TV it revolves around an everyday class turned into assassins with the task of killing their teacher to save the world and earn the large bounty on his head. While each of the characters play two roles student and assassin, teacher and target they continue their everyday lives as class 3-E the lowest class as well as the misfits and outcasts of the school. He is there target and the best teacher they have ever had, add in his amazing abilities into the mix that make him practically in killable and it makes for an exciting action packed story. this anime has a more set plot than that of Saiki Kusuo no Psi Nan TV and becomes more serious as the season progresses.

Emilia412 Emilia412 says...

They are both very hilarious and so unique. It’s hard to find many good, well developed, non-cliché characters like the main characters in both of these. In every episode, you are sure to be laughing and I highly recommend watching them. 

Salldream Salldream says...

Ridiculous comedy anime. Assassination classroom is more action-packed, but Saiki is funnier.

Rascal Rascal says...

The humor in Saiki and AssClass is quite similar, as are the way all its characters interact. They're both based on a premise having to do with an irregular character with powers and take place largely at a school. AssClass is far more plot-based and ends up being more serious and Saiki leaves more room for pure comedy, however.

Overpowered main character: check 

A large cast of great characters: check

Largely school setting: check 

One of my personal favorite animes: check

Humorous and fun: check

While the main aspects of the show are different (class trying to kill their octopus teacher vs. apathetic psychic who can't stop making friends) they are both great and colorful shows with excellent characters. I am a sucker for character development and both shows surprised me by how much the characters grow. Both are in my top 10 favorites. I HIGHLY recommend!

Gintama

Gintama

In Gintoki's Japan, the arrival of the various space races known collectively as the Amanto ended the era of the samurai. The Amanto's highly advanced technology resulted in total conquest and a severe economic shift. Now, former samurai such as Gintoki scrape together whatever livelihood they can. Gintoki's profession of choice is that of a yorozuya: he'll complete any job for money. However, he’s unmotivated; and spending most of the day on the couch with the latest issue of Jump and a carton of Strawberry Milk is his preferred pastime. It turns out that his new unpaid employees, Shinpachi and Kagura, are going to interfere with his pastime even more than with his "work"! Of course, none of this means he has really given up on his samurai ideologies!

Gintama has a similar sense of humour. Or at least, one of the types of humour frequently featured in Gintama is the same. If you find Saiki k. funny, you should really enjoy Gintama (because it is funnier). The settings are quite different though, fair warning.

Rascal Rascal says...

The types of humor in Saiki show up often in Gintama and they're both primarily comedy anime that devote much of their runtime to their gags. All character interactions are similar as well.

reeema reeema says...

gintama and saiki k have similar comedy, both worlds are.. unusual, the episodes in both animes are unrelated (except for the serious/ semi serious arcs and the multiple part episodes) i just think in general if you liked one of them you will for sure love the other one n enjoy it:3 also saiki kinda reminds me of gin chan because they both seem like they just dont care n are done with everything but they're actually always there for their friends n are always willing to help them out, p wholesome if u ask me<3

Teoca317 Teoca317 says...

Both Gintama and Saiki K have a lot of comedy. They also have a lot of gags and randomness in each episode. Both have memorable characters. There's even a Gintama reference in the second season of Saiki K!
