Comedy anime recommendations?
Want some good, humorous anime.

Some that I've watched:

Minami-ke (all 3 seasons)
Lucky Star (Meh, didn't enjoy too terribly much)
Nichijou (This is airing now, and is a favorite thus far)
FMP: Fumoffu!
Kyou no Go no Ni
Excel Saga
Seitokai Yakuindomo
Seitokai no Ichizon
Soredemo Machi wa Mawatteiru (Another favorite)

A broad selection, but plenty of leg room. I don't really mind 'dark humor' dirty (or what you may call ecchi) humor, random humor or slapstick, it's all generally good in my book. Well as long as it's not the 'they tried so hard it's completely not funny at all' type of funny.

I appreciate it greatly!

You will enjoy Shinryaku Ika Musume, Muteki Kanban Musume, maybe if you are looking for dark humour or ecchi, Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei, Desert Punk, GTO and Maria Holic. All these are genuinely funny without any random humour like Lucky Star.

A Channel has been considered to be something of a rehash of Lucky Star (I think so, anyway); make of that what you will. I haven't watched the anime (nor have I watched Lucky Star for comparison) but I have read the manga, and while it's not great by any means it should suit what you're looking for just fine.

Azumanga daioh: the "classic" which started the whole wave of cute girls in school animes

Level E: Sci fi comedy with one of the best troll characters ever

Sora no Otoshimono: Echi comedy

Ika musume

Ore no Imouto : there's a bit of drama but it's really the comedy that I preffer,especialy in the latter episodes

Ghost stories (the english dub) : the english dub doesn't follow the original japanese script and does it's own completely politicaly incorect thing

Panty and Stocking: definatly not for everyone,full over toilet humour.

Perhaps Baka to Test and School Rumble would suit your tastes.

SeijiSensei 2011-05-12 19:52

These cover a broad spectrum of comedy:

School Rumble - definite contender for funniest high-school comedy ever

Higepiyo - Japanese family adopts a talking chick with samurai aspirations

Moyashimon - "campus hijinks" story about a college freshman who can see microbes

Welcome to the NHK! - dark psychological satire about "NEETs" ("not in employment, education or training")

Nodame Cantabile - romantic comedy set in a college-level conservatory; wanna-be conductor meets wacky pianist

Oh! Edo Rocket - anachronistic comedy set in 1843-44 Edo (Tokyo); a mysterious young woman asks a fireworks maker to build her a rocket to the moon

The World God Only Knows might be an interesting comedy for you.

GreatTeacherKen 2011-05-13 01:59

Cromartie High School- it has really bizarre humor and scenarios delivered in a deadpan manner. For example, it has a character who's obviously a robot but nobody, including himself, seems to realize this and the smartest character in the series is a gorilla.

Klashikari 2011-05-13 02:12

One of the most explosive comedy series: Seto no Hanayome.

Kotohono 2011-05-13 03:22

Maybe B Gata H Kei, or MM!?; Both on are a similar type of humor as Seitokai Yakuindomo, so chances are you could enjoy them, though B Gata H Kei has a bit more romance in it.

A more bizarre series, but Bakemonogatari is one of the most funny series I've seen :), it does have a story and romance, but the comedy is what really made the show great.

I'll second the The World God Only Knows, it's really great at times and not random based.

A Channel is honestly more like K-On than Lucky Star in terms of comedy[though it does have more comedy per episode than K-On so far], so I am not sure if you'd enjoy it, but you could give a it try.

Mami 2011-05-13 04:06

I found Level E to be pretty humorous myself. Since you're fine with dirty humor, I'll also agree with the B Gata H Kei recommendation. I think School Rumble would suit your tastes as well.

Akuma Kousaka 2011-05-13 09:24

I'm just going to second everything that's been said as well as recommend Hyakko! and Hidamari Sketch.

Pellissier 2011-05-13 09:47

Eleven replies to the original post, and no one even mentioned Mitsudomoe, that show is truly unappreciated. :(

Disclaimer: there's something that may put you off in the first two episodes, if you manage to go past those it becomes much better. It has a second season too.

Comedy + Art = GA: Geijutsuka Art Design Class

Comedy + Ecchi = Midori no Hibi , stunningly hilarious.

Comedy + Sport (Kendo) = Bamboo Blade

Comedy + Vampires = Karin

Classy Comedy = Ichigo Mashimaro

Long Running Comedy = Hayate no Gotoku , it has a second season as well. A movie and a third season are on their way.

Of the above mentioned, seconding A-Channel (though if you haven't liked Lucky Star and are liking Nichijou, that is very close to the former and quite distant from the latter), School Rumble (first season in particular) and Seto no Hanayome.

akazukin cha cha~~
and seconds ichigo mashimaro, welcome to the nhk, school rumble, sayonara zetsubou sensei season 1 only.

um... i perosnally hated setono hanayome. I think if you hated Love Hina you will definitely hate seto no hanayome. The resaon I hated love hina nad seto no hanayome was because they were really annoying/loud/unoriginal/had dumb energy that is directed in the worst annoying dragged out way possible.

azumanga daioh is really boring and slow so you can decide whether you find it hilarious or boring as hell in like 2 eps or so.

zabour 2011-05-13 14:59

I'll second Seto No Hanayome, one of the funniest things I've ever seen the first half of the first eppisode isn't funny though, get through that and you'll love the rest!

Honey and clover is also incredibly funny. It's emotional with GREAT characters and romance. Though comedy isn't the main theme I still find it pretty damn hilarious. Overall really awesome anime.

Kafriel 2011-05-13 15:48


I'll second Seto No Hanayome
Adding Gintama, Arakawa under the bridge, 2x2=Shinobuden, all three slapstick funny, although Gintama's got drama and epicness in it too.

Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai
Kaichou wa Maid-sama!
Kore wa Zombie Desu ka?
Love Hina

a good animie that makes me laugh so much is Oran High School Host club.
its really funny :)

MisaoFan 2012-12-30 12:11

Try Haiyore! Nyaruko-san : it was funny on its own and very enjoyable. If you liked it, you could watch the second season that's coming out soon !

mystogan 2012-12-30 13:08

how come no body posted this,Danshi koukousei no Nichijou, what is happening to the world:p
and a nice dark comedy would be Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei
