In the anime community, it is good to have high-quality shonen anime where there is a lot of action. We have witnessed some legendary anime like Attack on Titan, One Piece, and Bleach. But funny anime is also a great category of anime as we see some great comical anime that has some great sense of humor.
Kaguya-sama : Love is War
Kaguya-Sama: Love Is War is the most relatable anime out there. The things we do for love, this anime covers our behavior with our love interest. It brilliantly shows how we expect others to admit their feelings but never admit them first. It’s an anime where the theme of love is mixed with mind games and it shows a great combination of thrill and comedy with romantic elements which still make up most of the anime.
The story features the student council of Shuuichin Academy, with president Miyuki Shirogane and Kaguya Shinomiya as vice-president. They are in love with each other, but they try to force a confession out of each other instead of admitting their feeling themselves.
This school-themed anime is different from the rest as it contains a bit more mature humor with endless unpredictability which adds to the randomness. Their little battles to force out a confession are what bring out an organic feel to the anime.
The Way of The Househusband
A complete package of slice-of-life comedy that brings a unique and funny perspective of former Yakuza boss, Tatsu. He has long abandoned his previous lifestyle and has become a househusband whereas his wife Miku is an esteemed designer.
The comedic and funny aspect of the series is brought out when Tatsu experiences a struggle doing daily chores with the personality of a Yakuza boss. Just imagine a thug doing housework, but it certainly brings an abrupt image to mind.
If you are looking for a pure fan service anime, Prison School is just for you. There is no accurate way to refer to this anime and it belongs in its own league. You can categorize it as an NSFW anime with plenty of fanservice.
The story features five young perverted boys, who are put in jail for a month because they got caught while looking at a girl taking shower. The prison they are sent to is filled with girl jailors, which clearly adds fuel to fire. They are now destined to become even more perverted.
It shows the desperate attempts of perverted boys who will do anything to get a glance or an opportunity to achieve a close moment with their warden. This anime reminds me of Boy’s Locker Room.
The Disastrous Life of Saiki K.
Saiki K. is a psychic who just wants to live his life normally and keep the secret of his powers to himself as he doesn’t want to stand out too much. The people around him make it difficult for him by constantly pulling him into their mess.
This situation makes Saiki use his powers to avoid getting hurled up in such situations. The comedy is not raw to a great extent. You will be able to enjoy it even if you are a non-anime stan. Anyone can watch it as it is. The anime series is fun to watch and ideal if you want to watch something light and funny. The show is available on Netflix, so go and watch it now.
Gintama is certainly one of the funniest anime I’ve ever seen. It reminds me of Family Guy, but with more humor and fights. The show has a ton of funny references from fellow anime series like One Piece, Bleach, and much other anime.
The interesting aspect is when characters complain about their screen time, which makes it even more fun than most anime. Gintama is thoroughly enjoyable throughout the anime and the length of the series does not affect its quality whatsoever. It is adapted into hundreds of episodes, and many movies speak highly of this anime.
The center plot is based in Edo-era Japan where the alien race Amanto has invaded Japan and outnumbered Samurais to prevent them from fighting back at all. Once a proud samurai, Gintoki is a normal guy who does odd jobs with Shinpachi and Kagura, the alien. A must-watch for pure gold comedy.
One Punch Man
One Punch Man is a refreshing funny anime with a fresh plot and outlook of the superhero anime. Unlike most superhero anime or anime in general, the protagonist is weak initially and gains powers through rigorous training and guidance. But One Punch Man breaks all the stereotypes regarding superheroes.
The story features Saitama who has an incredible power to knock out anyone in just a single punch. He is very lazy and seen as a harmless and brainless fellow by everyone around him. The reason for his superpowers is rather peculiar as he reveals how he got powerful.
He has gone bald due to his rigorous physical training routine. So, he joins the Superhero job and starts from the lowest class of heroes. He is bored with his life as he doesn’t get excited with any of his opponents due to his incredible one punch which has ended every fight so far.
The anime covers the daily struggles of a professional hero who is lazy and bored all the time. It certainly provides some unexpected turns to an unusual story. he adventures of an ordinary yet extraordinary hero.
Daily Life of High School Boys
A most normal depiction of boys and what they usually do at school, which is a boys-only school. Tadakuni and his teenage friends are always up to some mischief. The three of them, Takaduni, Hidenori, and Yoshitake stay together in school to do what boys do, hang out, do pranks, and discuss girls.
The anime is filled with funny and humorous instances where the three of them constantly put themselves in laughable situations. The clueless boys do things in order to satisfy their curiosity of boys have the time.
The Devil is a part-timer
How often does Satan is forced to live on earth disguised as a human? Satan is fleeing a battle that he lost and ends up on earth with no magic left to return and finds himself trapped in Tokyo. In order to survive and make it his home, he must earn a living to hang in.
He starts working in a fast-food chain restaurant MgRonals, where he encounters many new people and the adventures of his life begin. It is a funny anime where even Satan has to open a bank account and work, which humorously depicts his helplessness.
GTO(Great Teacher Onizuka)
Great Teacher Onizuka, the title of the series explains pretty much about the series. A 20-something ex-delinquent Eikichi Onizuka is appointed as a teacher after getting the necessary certifications. To his surprise, he is handed a class full of hoodlums who will do anything to get their teacher fired.
But what they don’t know is that Onizuka himself has been a delinquent all his life and doesn’t back down so easily. So, now it’s his mission to improve the class. Though the students have already resorted to devious plots and schemes to get Onizuka fired from their school. Onizuka goes well out of his way to save his students and always sticks to their sides which eventually helps him win over this stubborn class.
The anime is a perfectly funny anime with a mix of fun, drama, emotion, and action. The anime tries to paint a picture of an ideal teacher because a teacher shapes the life and mind of a student. Everyone deserves a teacher like Onizuka.
Ouran High School Host Club
Haruhi Fujioka is a student with a scholarship at the prestigious Ouran Academy. She breaks an expensive vase by mistake belonging to the well-known Host Club, which consists of six handsome and rich boys. These boys take her for a boy due to her appearance. Since Haruhi has a debt to pay off, the boys make her work for the club, whose sole purpose is to entertain wealthy and bored female students.
The anime parodies Shoujo tropes and it is a funny anime with an energetic first season. The anime contains hilarious moments of laughter and silliness and so much heart. It makes fun of various elements from Shoujo to French names and many more things.
