Sket Dance is an
It’s also one of the only
In this series there’s:
- Hime Onizuka.
- Yusuke Fujisaki
- Switch Kun.
And all 3 of them form a group called Sket Dance. The goal is to help others any way they can and to encourage and problem solve.
Let’s get started.
Hyouka is in a similar setting to Sket Dance. The main characters Houtarou and Eru Chitanda have their own room in school where “business” gets done.
To pass the time each character comes up with mysteries, or thinks about things that seem mysterious, and then tries to solve those mysteries.
Hyouka is of course by Kyoto Animation, so it’s a solid recommendation from a studio that knows how to make good
2. Daily Lives Of High School Boys
The Daily Lives Of High School Boys is a bit different, but still has relevant similarities to Sket Dance,
It’s as the title says. Focusing purely on the lives of 3 teenage boys in particular, and the nonsense they get up to day to day.
It’s a window into high school life as a teenager and even though ridiculous with its comedy, still accurate and relatable for many.
3. The Disastrous Life Of Saiki K
The Disastrous Life Of Saiki K is a comical way of putting the actual story. This
It’s about Kusuo Saiki, a psychic teenager who was born with his powers. He can even change the fabric of reality if he wants.
He’s overpowered to a fault.
He wants nothing more than to be left alone, for no one to know about his powers, and to live life without any drama. But it doesn’t always work that way.
4. Wasteful Days Of High School Girls
Wasteful Days Of High School Girls is also exactly as it sounds. You can think of it as the female version of daily lives of high school boys.
Similar to Sket Dance, this
The main characters are obviously female characters exclusively, each with their own ingredient to add to the main dish of the
Oregairu is one of the more meaningful anime series on this list. A slice of life with a deeper side and still some rom com to balance it out.
Hachiman Hikigaya is an
He’s not superficial, is a deep thinker, and has no interest in surface level bullshit.
Yukino is also an
Yuigahama completes the trio of this
Each character grows in different ways, forms relationships with each other, overcomes their insecurities together in indirect ways.
D-Frag plays on the “club” aspect that so many school
It’s more accurate to say he’s pressured and tricked into doing it.

7. School Rumble
School Rumble is a rom com series that’s considered old school by today’s standards. It first released in the early 2000’s.
Tenma is an airheaded character who has a secret lover called Kenji Harima. He’s an ex-thug and delinquent who’s trying to change his life around.
This is all thanks to Tenma’s involvement, and the influence she’s had on him.
Kenji is a
It’s a well rounded series overall.
8. Seitokai Yakuindomo
Seitokai Yakuindomo is an
- Shino Amakusa.
- Shichijou Aria.
- Suzu Hagiumura.
After joining a school that now mixes with boys Tsuda finds himself in the student council where 2 of its members are a little on the eccentric side.
He confides in Hagimura, the “normal” member of the bunch. And they all ultimately work together to make the school better for everyone.
It’s like a different shade of Sket Dance.
9. Ookami San And Her Seven Companions
Ookami San And Her Seven Companions is all in the name. These “seven” companions work together towards certain goals, but they’re not in a school setting.
It’s still similar to a student council in a sense.
Ryouko Ookami is a Tsundere, and one who knows how to fight and box. You get a glimpse of this in the first moments of the first episode.
One guy falls for her, and they have an awkward relationship seeing as she’s a bit masculine and he’s a bit on the soft side.
Gintama had to be on the list. It’s the only
With as many episodes as an average old school Shounen or more, you’ll be entertained for longer than any normal comedy can dish out.
With parody being its strength, you can expect
- Medaka Box.
- Kokoro Connect.
- The Melancholy Of Haruhi Suzumiya.
- Good Luck Girl.
