Boys Dealing With Daily Life

Ah, high school. Even though I finished it two years ago, I still feel old and nostalgic thinking about it. The simple pleasures of detention, running late for classes, and loitering around in the hallways are surely to be missed. Not to mention, my random tomfoolery as well, such as claiming that the chemistry teacher was a time traveler, skipping track practices, and doing homework 20 minutes before it was due. It was a mundane life that had it's own unique charm to it.

With my own high school experience in mind, and after watching a few other high-school set anime like Azumanga Daioh or Cromartie High School, I decided to give The Daily Lives of High School Boys (Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou aka Nichibros to some otaku) a shot. I needed something that was slapstick and simple, with no complicated plot in my anime diet. Nichibros managed to satisify that hunger.

It's exactly what the title depicts: daily life as a high school boy. It involves three high school friends who go to an all boy's high school and their wacky encounters in life. While some of their antics are typical to boys, such as stealing panties and playing RPGs, the way they handle situations is what makes it hilarious. Sometimes the gags itself aren't that funny, but the characters are the ones that make up for it. The animation is average, but in this type of comedy anime, animation seems irrelevant.

It is a typical school comedy anime that will be shelved with others of its kind. Yet, there is something about this show's parodies and sense of humor that makes it a bit different than the average anime comedy. Or maybe I acted too much like these high school boys in high school that I actually find them relatable (I hope not. I wasn't THAT ridiculous. At least I don't think so). So, if you need something to watch after a long stressful day, or want to take a waltz down memory lane give The Daily Life of High School Boys a shot, you won't regret it. I guarantee it.

Here's some funny tidbits from the show!
