Here’s Day 17 and well I’m struggling with this one. Favourite comedy anime. While there’s a couple of comedy anime I’ve liked I don’t really have a favourite given comedy is not exactly a favourite genre of mine. There’s probably a handful comedy anime that really come to mind that I’ve really enjoyed the comedy of rather than enjoying them despite the comedy.
The Devil is a Par Timer is probably the first one that springs to mind. I found the basic concept of the show hilarious. And while the joke did wear a little thin toward the end of the season, I actually wouldn’t mind seeing a continuation of this anime as I kind of want to know what the characters get up to next. Plus, there are some seriously dramatic moments in amongst the comedy.
Noragami is another anime I really liked the humour but again, the focus shifts from the comedic to the dramatic so it wouldn’t really be right to call it a comedy anime.
In terms of just comedy I’d have to go with Acchi Kocchi. It’s a weird school comedy that is told in half episode snippets with a basic set up and punch line. Some of the stories are total misses but some are laugh out loud funny and the characters are suitably zany. Okay, maybe I was just in a weird mood the first time I watched it but for whatever reason this show appealed so whenever I want to watch something just for the sake of a laugh this one comes around more often than not.
Okay, what is your favourite comedy anime.
