Zett is a high school student who loves reading light novels, web novels, and manga. He also loves watching various movies and series.

Japan has been very famous for its animated video entertainment known as Anime. Animes could widely vary in genre from the sweetest romance to the frightful horror. Every anime lover certainly has a difference in the choice of their favorite genre. However, comedy has been clearly one of the well-loved genres and surely has been widely popular nowadays. Mostly due mostly to its light-hearted plot and funny lines, watching comedy anime will surely make you laugh hard enough for your stomach to pain.

Thus, here are some of the best and popular comedy anime you might want to watch.

1 - Ansatsu Kyoushitsu (Assassination Classroom)

Assassination Classroom
Assassination Classroom

Genre: [Action [Comedy] [Sci-Fi] [Fantasy] [Drama] [School]

Why Watch It:

Everyone would be thinking that the anime would only focus on the action scenes, specifically on how the students would kill Koro-sensei and how Koro-sensei defends himself. Well, it does compromise most parts of the episodes.

However, as you watch further, you’ll realize that there are much comic scenes and life-oriented lessons that not only will make you laugh, but also teaches you great lessons. Not to mention, these funny moments come up in unexpected parts where the atmosphere is very serious and tense. Though not much funny to several known comedy animes, Assassination Classroom is the best to recommend for light-hearted comedies.

2 - Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukinai (I Don't Have Many Friends)

I Don't Have Many Friends a.k.a. Haganai
I Don't Have Many Friends a.k.a. Haganai

Genre: [Harem] {Slice of Life] [Comedy] [Romance] [Ecchi] [School]

Why Watch It:

If you’re truly looking for a romantic comedy that is super hilarious, then Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukinai would be the best for you. Combined with comic actions and jokes including mature-themed ones, the childishness of the characters will surely make you laugh. Not to mention, the witty attempts of the characters in their love affairs will give you the countless chance to laugh hard. And as you watch each of the episodes, I’m sure you’ll find yourself laughing on the floor.

3 - Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou (Daily Lives of High School Boys)

Daily Lives of High School Boys
Daily Lives of High School Boys

Genre: [Slice of Life] [Comedy] [School] [Shounen]

Why Watch It:

The Daily Lives of High School Boys is one of the funniest anime I’ve ever watched. Most people would think that the art of the anime is old-school and is quite a turn off, which even I thought so too. But as you watch further into the first episode, you’ll find yourself laughing very hard on the comical actions of the characters. Even the opening and ending songs have been made for laughter. Certainly, compared to the different amusing performances of the characters and the hilarious songs, you’ll likely to disregard and adapt the art for a time of laughter.

Extra: Also, the title might say High School Boys, but unlikely, there are also girl characters in the anime that brought much humorous scenes. And unlike feminine girls in most animes, these characters clearly break your stereotypes. So I’m also sure that girls likewise could relate to many situations and would also end up giggling much to their hearts’ content.

4 - D-Frag!


Genre: [Comedy] [Game] [School] [Seinen]

Why Watch It:

D-Frag is not just your ordinary comedy featuring a high school club. It’s pack with a lot of humorous line and scenes that will bring the best laughter out of everyone! Moments such as the main character being caught up in a complicated love triangle of a loli and a masochist, the club members super varied delusions, and other characters making jokes on their president’s chest will give you a hard time recovering from an intense laughter. Not to mention, the main character’s retort and personality really did add fire to most scenes.

5 - Fudanshi Koukou Seikatsu (The Highschool Life of a Fudanshi)

The Highschool Life of a Fudanshi
The Highschool Life of a Fudanshi

Genre: [Slice of Life] [Comedy] [School] [Shoujo]

Why Watch It:

Boys’ Love, or commonly known as BL, depicts the relationships of males, either romantically or not. In other terms, it may not be necessarily involves gay relationships, but it does include those in the aspect. Fundashis, a.k.a. BL Fans and Lovers, had been utmost shown in the anime Fudanshi Koukou Seikatsu.

The anime mostly shows the daily life (and struggles) of a fundanshi. Though there aren’t any mature and scenes, if you’re the type who feels uncomfortable watching these types of animes, then I’ll suggest you skip on this part.

However, Fudanshi Koukou Seikatsu does bring a lot of funny moments, which of course every fundanshi and all others related to them could related: difficulty in buying BL books, shipping every male they could see, etc. Of course, jokes are thrown most of the times to bring a much higher form of comedy in the anime.

6 - Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun (Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun)

Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun
Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun

Genre: [Comedy] [Romance] [School]

Why Watch It:

Aside from the romance that I’m really hype about, the comedy that revolves on the main characters and other supporting characters deserves a high recognition. Each of the characters has been emphasized well with their unique personalities, turning each of tense and fluffy situations to a madness of laughter. Moreover, not only that you’d have a glimpse on the life of a mangaka or a manga artist, you’ll end up laughing on their own struggles on making a successful manga. It may sound very evil, but in much sense the anime overall is very hilarious. Definitely a must watch!

7 - Kono Bijutsubu ni wa Mondai ga Aru! (This Art Club Has a Problem!)

This Art Club Has a Problem! a.k.a. Konobi
This Art Club Has a Problem! a.k.a. Konobi

Genre: [Comedy] [Romance] [School]

Why Watch It:

‘A girl who is in love with her school mate’ might sound very cliché for romance animes. But adding the facts that the boy is a total otaku (i.e. someone who loves fictional characters, especially anime and manga characters, very much) and the girl’s “unique” circle of friends, it turns out to be the perfect romantic comedy. I’m sure you’ll end up laughing in the first few episodes, as much as I did, and certainly would be quite addicted in watching this anime. Additionally, the light atmosphere within the setting and laughter-inducing scenes really did prove to be a plus point on why you should watch this anime.

8 - Love Lab

Love Lab
Love Lab

Genre: [Comedy] [Romance] [School]

Plot Summary:

Why Watch It:

Foremost, if you are worrying that Love Lab is yuri (i.e. form of genre that depicts the relationships of females), it’s not. Most people who watched this for the first time would directly judge that since all main characters are females.

Anyways, prepare for a half an hour of ultimate fun and laughter. Love Lab brings you countless of jokes and performances of different characters who have not experienced any love or romantic relationships. The character’s mixed imaginative and realistic love stimulations would surely make your day. And apart from laughing very hard, you’ll be surprised to learn (not on the love stimulations, of course) but the value of friendship in our daily life.

9 - Mikakunin de Shinkoukei (Engaged to the Unidentified)

Engaged to the Unidentified
Engaged to the Unidentified

Genre: [Slice of Life] [Comedy] [Romance] [School]

Why Watch It:

Honestly, Mikakunin de Shinkoukei would only be considered comedy due to the existence of one hilarious character: Benio(-sama!). In other words, all the fun revolves mostly on Benio. You’d be laughing very hard on her retorts, jokes, realizations, and her very actions. Of course, the other characters have also been part of the show and some even helping Benio in her laugh affairs. Still, Benio did quite steal of the witty show.

10 - Seitokai Yakuindomo

Seitokai Yakuindomo
Seitokai Yakuindomo

Genre: [Comedy] [School] [Shounen] [Slice of Life]

Why Watch It:

First thing’s first, if you are under of appropriate age or is uncomfortable of sexual jokes, then leave Setokai Yakuindomo out of your list.

As much as I’ve seen, the anime is filled with countless sexual jokes. You’ll probably be hearing things about vibrators, sex, masturbation, etc. And though those things are shown on the anime, they are censored for obvious reasons. Everything is quite mature, and which some of the comical adult performance and terms left me unable to understand. Nonetheless, it does gives us laughs and fun, and is quite enjoyable in my opinion.

11 - Tanaka-kun wa Itsumo Kedaruge (Tanaka-kun is Always Listless)

Tanaka-kun is Always Listless
Tanaka-kun is Always Listless

Genre: [Slice of Life] [Comedy] [School]

Why Watch It:

Though not quite funny compared to other comedy animes, Tanaka-kun wa Itsumo Kedaruge does provide comedy, but in a much lighter sense. Much of the anime’s comical scenes did revolve on the main character’s lax attitude and how his friends try to cope up with it.


That ends my list of recommendations for now. I hope you had fun reading all my suggestions, and hopefully you might want to try some of them. Anyways, have fun watching!
