I'm a pretty picky person when it comes to what makes me laugh but the following I can't sit through without cracking a smile or having to pause because I'm laughing way too hard. Here are my top 15 comedy anime!
- Strawberry Marshmallow
- Astro Fighter Sunred
- Yakitate!! Japan
- Detroit Metal City
- Cromartie High School
- Excel Saga + Puni Puni Poemy
- Arakawa Under the Bridge
- Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu
- Kyoran Kazoku Nikki
- Legend of Koizumi
Bonus anime is Kuruneko! It's 2 minute shorts, it's about cats, it's HILARIOUS! Especially if you REALLY like cats.
Clearly I like a lot of slapstick humour and really out there stuff. Hare+Guu was so strange half the time I didn't even understand why it was funny but that it just was! A brilliant weird comedy that totally deserves to be at the top of my list. Gintama makes fun of everything, has a super cast, and is really well written. Strawberry Marshmallow to this day I will always re-watch episode 6. IT NEVER GETS OLD! Yes, even I can like school slice of life comedies. Astro Fighter Sunred combines superheros that suck with wonderful monsters and has cooking lessons in some episodes! The lessons might be simple sure, but it's the hilarious thought that counts. Who would have thought an anime about BREAD would be so hilarious. Yup Yakitate!! Japan yet again combines comedy and food, 2 things that go together very well.
Detroit Metal City won me over with its way out there crudeness, yet it has a wonderful soft side to it that the main protagonist does perfectly. Who would have thought you could tame your inner beast and let it out through music! Cromartie High School is about many strange boy delinquents gathered in one school. They sometimes don't quite know what being a delinquent is all about. Simply hilarious! Excel Saga + Puni Puni Poemy are both wacky and rely on being super random. You'll be laughing or holding your head because of how hyper it is. Arakawa Under the Bridge combines a lot of strange people and tosses a seemingly ordinary man right in the middle of the weirdos. Like Gintama it is very well written and has an amazing cast to back it up. Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu is a random comedy right in the middle of the FMP series, that is quite series for the majority of the time. I personally think people should watch Fumoffu after the first series to really get a good laugh out of it. You'll want your very own Bonta-kun after viewing.
Minami-ke follows 3 sisters as they go through school and the strange situations they get into. Yet another slice of school life comedy I like! It had a lovely charm to it because they aren't all the same age so we get a lot of different kind of jokes. Hetalia is personified countries of the world. That's just too good for me not to find hilarious. (BL Pairings aside XD) Kyoran Kazoku Nikki takes 8 very VERY different "people" and turns them into one great big random messed up family. Darkness lurks around every corner for each character but aside from that very hilarious. Legend of Koizumi was just wow. They took Hetalia in a totally different direction that turned out to be intense but it a very good and funny way. Ryofuko-chan is a knock off of Romance of the Three Kingdoms which I'm very much a fan of. They took my favourite character, Lu Bu, and turned him into a young girl that REALLY likes breasts! It was just way too funny for me to handle at times.
So there you have it! My favourite comedies! If you know of something that I should love and haven't watched please do suggest it. I love to laugh!
These are shows that I just can't seem to write one big post about that I've seen so far so I thought I'd just write a little something about each and lump them all together.
Sora no Woto
Everyone keeps screaming K-On about this one... Sure the characters look the same but honestly that's about where the similarities end. Maybe everyone is just looking for more K-On right now since they can't wait for the season 2 to come out. But I think this anime has potential to be way more interesting and possibly a little dark even. The story about the beast was pretty interesting and the water festival was great fun to watch. The animation is pretty good and I'm still on the fence about the music. I did like that French song they had in there though. 🙂
Dance In The Vampire Bund
The first episode was really dry and boring. There was some interesting enough action at the end but it doesn't make me want to watch more of this show. But since I haven't gotten a good idea of what this show is really about yet I'm going to give it a few more episodes to figure out if I like it or not. I'm thinking that a lot of people that were looking forward to this show will be disappointed.
What can I say... I suppose it's cool to have allergies to cats lately or something. With the past awesome Nyan Koi now comes this, with an extra serving of fanservice included. We follow the story about a boy who attracts weird creatures that "want to eat his liver" because the charm that his grandmother gave him is suddenly loosing strength and can't make him go undetected from them anymore. Luckily this black haired cat girl comes out of no where and vows to protect him. lol ok I'll bite and give this a whirl. (damn cat...girl anime) XD
The Legend of Koizumi
It's like Hetalia but with mahjong! Important figures are in this in a hilarious way. It isn't super good yet but it has a lot of potential. If you liked this and haven't seen Hetalia: Axis Powers go watch it now.
