A good comedy recommendation

I'm looking for a new series to watch, I'm watching enough of other genres aside from Romance wich I don't like. I like a good blend of action and comedy.

I watched the first episode of Midori no hibi and I thought it was what I was looking for, despite the fact that I already read about a volume of the manga I thought the action might sitll pick up like it was in the first episode with the fight scenes. But I hreard it just get''s more into a romance so that's a no go. A series like Fummofu would be perfect all the way to Cromartie.

So does anyone know of any good comedy series(anime or manga), with maybe a little action?

EDIT: Something Unliscensed would be great.

How can you not like Midori no Hibi! That is way funnier than Fumoffu! Try watching a few more episodes and you might learn to like it...

By the way...anyone know of a series similar to Midori no Hibi? I love the comedy and story and am looking for something similar...not too much of the touchy feely stuff though

Magical shopping arcade abenobashi and Excel saga are both more like some crazy parody than simple comedy. They are a lot more fun to watch if you are familiar with animes and movies and tv-drama and stuff...

Jubei-chan 2 is some good comedy/parody too, and of course there's Full Metal Panic Fumoffu

mb try Tenshi na Konamaiki.


As for a new action/comedy I've no idea. Just rewatch Trigun.

I agree with these recommendations, but also want to add that Puni Puni Poemy is a good addition to the Excel wackyness....

As for Jubei-Chan 2, I'd highly suggest watching the first one before getting into the 2nd, things would be a lot less confusing

As for Fumoffu, it's easilly possible to watch either the original first or Fumoffu without it doing much. Character development more in the original FMP, but Fumoffu does a good job at that on it's own two feet.

You are crazy! Fumoffu is waaayy more funny than Midori no Hibi. Fumoffu is full of satire and creative dialogue. A lot of the jokes in Midori are visual and after the novelty of the girl on the hand is over, it imo just becomes an above average romance anime.

I already watched Fummofu, back before it was liscensed. I'm probably just going to Watch Sexy Commando Gaiden, any one watch this?


I agree that Fummofu is funnier than Midori No Hibi. Though I didn't give the anime a chance really cause it focus too much on other things, but the manga was funny but not nearly as funny as fummofu.

I also took at a look at that Jungle show, I definitely recommend it if someone wants a bit senseless comedy.
