Otakus Discuss the Funniest Anime

The diversity of opinions reflects the subjective nature of what makes each person laugh. While some users praise anime with slapstick humor and absurd situations, others prefer clever humor and cultural references. This shows that anime encompasses a wide range of comedy styles, from physical humor to subtle sarcasm.

In addition, cultural context and personal experiences influence what each individual finds funny. What may be hilarious for someone in one part of the world may fall flat for another in a different region. This highlights the richness and complexity of comedy in anime, which can be appreciated in different ways depending on each viewer's background and preferences.

Some anime mentioned in the debate include classics of the genre such as "Gintama," known for its absurd humor and meta references; "Nichijou," which offers a surreal and exaggerated comedy; and "KonoSuba!," which combines slapstick humor with eccentric characters and hilarious situations. However, the list is extensive and varies depending on the individual preferences of participating users.

  • "There's only one anime that's made me laugh out loud, and it did it twice. It's Azumanga Daioh."
  • "Nichijou, some of his jokes are very Japanese, but there are some universally comic moments."
  • "I don't know if Nichijou is the funniest anime ever, but it's a contender. The art style and characters are adorable."
  • "I would say Excel Saga, Space Dandy, and the English dub of Ghost Stories."
  • "Grand Blue and KonoSuba! they're my options."
  • "Great Teacher Onizuka and Sakamoto desu ga?"
  • "For me, the funniest ones have been Daily Lives of Highschool Boys and Aho Girl. I would also mention KonoSuba!"
  • "Seitokai Yakuindomo, without a doubt."
  • "You should check out Cromartie High School, to me that and Saiki K are the most fun."
  • "Pop Team Epic is the ultimate shitpost made anime. It's not for everyone, but it probably has the most fun moments."
  • "Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun".
  • "Detroit Metal City, if adult humor is on the table, then that's an unknown gem."
  • "It's sad that people have forgotten about Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu. It was the first anime that made me laugh so hard that I had to pause the episode."
  • "Unpopular opinion, but I think 'Way of the House Husband' is the pinnacle of comedy."
  • "Full Metal Panic, without a doubt."
  • "Hinamatsuru, someone had to say it."
  • "Plastic Neesan, I assure you."
  • "In order, Nichijou, Golden Boy, and Excel Saga."
  • "Asobi Asobase, Nichijou and Lucky Star are the three big anime in comedy for me."
  • "They already said Saiki K, and there's nothing more popular. But I'd also put One-Punch Man and Mob Psycho 100."
  • "Golden Kamuy, it's unbelievable that no one mentioned it."
  • "My Bride is a Mermaid is the funniest shit I've ever seen."
  • "Definitely Grand Blue, I consider it very similar to Prison School in terms of the absurdity of the humor. KonoSuba! it's also awesome, although the S2 is a lot more fun than the S1. You could try Kanojo mo Kanojo and even The 100 Girlfriends (which starts out hilarious, in my opinion). There's nothing that beats Prison School in terms of good humor for me, the first three episodes are the funniest I've ever seen."
  • "Detroit Metal City, I practically cried at one point in the series of laughter."
  • "Amagi Brilliant Park is hilarious and a good anime of yesteryear."
