"The Daily Lives of High School Boys" is pure comedy in the most ridiculous and random sense you can imagine, every day is a new adventure for Tadakuni, Hidenori and Yoshitake filled with stupid conversations, strange happenings and childish antics.

Each character has their own little quirks but the main point of this show is the situations the characters are put in, the choices they make and the conversations they have. For example: In one scene, a hornet lands on Hidenori's lips, causing him to slowly go over to Yoshitake and squash the hornet by smashing his lips against Yoshitake's. Another example would be the time they saw a stick on the path and played RPG on the way to school, and Tadakuni getting annoyed and confused as they take it further and further.

If this sort of thing doesn't interest you, then this anime probably isn't for you. It is neither deep, dark or serious in the slightest, taking pride in being the embodiment of random, ridiculous and immature comedy. This series is, in my opinion, very funny, and will probably make you laugh a lot if you like this kind of humour.

Despite being funny, light and easy to watch this anime would not be appropriate for young children as it contains swearing and some sexual jokes, but it doesn't seem to revolve around those things.

The anime consists of episodes with several sections, each being a separate funny little story, making this anime easy to watch if you don't have much time on your hands. Despite this, it does not feel rushed or weird to have the sections of episodes like that, it fits reasonably well.

The animation is good, but I cannot evaluate it as I have not paid much attention to the quality, rather being consumed by the comedy and story of the show, although this show has a very nice unique style.

As for story, it sort of has one, but sort of doesn't. It is more of a slice of life and is primarily centred on school life and the student characters in high school, as well as each section being a seperate little story. So, if you go into this expecting a real story, you won't be that happy, but if you are already a fan of slice of life comedies then you should enjoy this.

Overall I give this series a 10/10 because of it's great characters, overly funny stories and situations, being addictive to watch, and being a lovely example of its genre, albeit a little more extreme than others of its genre.

Watch it, you never know, you could love it, you could hate it, but it's a brilliant comedy anime nonetheless.
