Average Rating

Takashi Kamiyama is your typical mild-mannered high school student—polite, aloof, and pacifistic, with a slightly above-average IQ. But would your average high school student really enroll himself at the infamous Cromartie High School, known as a breeding ground for the toughest delinquents out there? Apparently so, as that is exactly what Takashi does, though for reasons he'd rather leave unmentioned. However, one thing is for sure: the "hard-boiled rabbit in a den full of hungry lions" is never going to have another dull day. And how could he, now that he's surrounded by mohawked punks, obnoxious robots, and... gorillas? And was that Freddie Mercury riding a horse down the corridor? Follow Takashi as he earnestly dedicates his new high school life to better his school's reputation while his classmates are hellbent on wreaking havoc.

By far the greatest comedy anime ever created


This anime is based on a true story.


One of the best comedies out there. A fantastic cast of characters. Also features Freddie Mercury cross-dressing and shirtless on a horse.


Best school anime. Dry humor is best humor.


A show, where everyone takes the absurdity of the show serious. It’s pretty stupid and good fun.


Comedy anime’s greatest achievement

About as random as a highschool/comedy can get, but in the best way possible.
