Average Rating

Roaming the halls of the all-boys Sanada North High School are three close comrades: the eccentric ringleader with a hyperactive imagination Hidenori, the passionate Yoshitake, and the rational and prudent Tadakuni. Their lives are filled with giant robots, true love, and intense drama... in their colorful imaginations, at least. In reality, they are just an everyday trio of ordinary guys trying to pass the time, but who said everyday life couldn't be interesting? Whether it's an intricate RPG reenactment or an unexpected romantic encounter on the riverbank at sunset, Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou is rife with bizarre yet hilariously relatable situations that are anything but mundane.

I, too, enjoy laughing hysterically.


Just a bunch of bros doing bro things. Definitely give it a shot.


Elder God Tier SOL anime. I wish my high school life was this fun. Rip.


Absolutely hilarious. Got my alltime favourite anime sketch in “Literature Girl”.


Relatable and hilarious. Well-timed jokes and recurring gags that are just 👌👌


Just want to say this frickin’ hilarious as hell. Almost next to Gintama


Y’all ever think about how we’ll never get s2 and feel like shit? I still haven’t gone through all stages of grief and it’s been 5 years.



    I make bad encodes and whine about subs and if I'm feeling particularly memey, I make bad subs too!
