Produced by a collaboration of Square Enix and Sunrise; Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou (Daily Lives of High School Boys) is definitely a comedic anime I think most people would enjoy.

This anime is simply and ultimately focused on bringing you the experience of what it is like to be a high-school boy. Each episode has about 6 shorts (short clips) that highlight some relevant and ‘mature’ topic that has absolutely nothing to do with the short before or after it. It’s comical and very random; anyone who enjoyed or watched Gintama would definitely enjoy this.

The three main characters; Tadakuni, Hidenori, and Yoshitake are all students of an all-boys school and the writer really does a great job of establishing what each character’s role is from the beginning. It’s everything you’d expect from a high school anime in the genre of Comedy and it does very little to be ‘socially’ subtle even in Episode 1 (I say the word subtle but that is relative to your perspective).

With only 12 episodes, it is definitely a must watch despite what age you are. They do most things right providing great visual cues, ridiculous titles, obvious settings for ‘young love’, great conversational topics, self-referencing and much more. If you simply like comedy then this is definitely a must-watch.



If I were to take this seriously, I would say the only thing they didn’t touch on is the heavy use and influence of technology today. If we were to argue this point purely on comedic influence, I think that you could drive 1,000 jokes involving cell phones without fail. However, it is very plain to see that their focus was purely psychological and really had nothing to do with much else… which is fine of course.
