When you’re having a bad day the last thing you need is “more” bad news. Or worse, something that turns your bad day into a depressing day.
They say laughing is the greatest medicine and I agree.
It’s best to do what we can to cheer ourselves up, laugh and smile to uplift our spirits.
Especially when we’re down.
After all, what good is it if you’re being a negative nancy all day long? That only makes your day worse.
It doesn’t solve the problem or change it by being negative. And the more time you waste on those types of emotions, the less time you have for happiness and joy.
Having one of those days today?
Here’s a list worth checking out.
1. Monthly Girls Nozaki Kun
It’s a Shoujo type
You get over the top comedy, and cliches that are made out to be a joke (on purpose). And some subtle romance where it counts in a true rom com style.
If you’ve yet to watch it, give it a go. It’s a decent comedy series that deserves a shout out.
2. School Rumble
School Rumble is an
One of the main characters of the show is Kenji Harima. A passionate
He’s stepped away from the life of a delinquent and wants to better himself.
And even though School Rumble is full of comedy scenes, it does get deep when it needs to.
Either way, you’ll love this show if you’re into High School
It was released in 2004-2005.

3. Lucky Star
If you’re into video
it’s hilarious from episode to episode. In a slice of life style of
One thing to appreciate about this Kyoto Animation series is the DUB is one of the best. With stellar voice acting and humor.
And Konata Izumi (the main character) is one of the funniest there is.
Lucky Star was released back in 2007.
4. My Bride Is A Mermaid
My Bride Is A Mermaid is still one of the absolute funniest
Even in 2020.
It’s about Nagasumi Michishio, a guy who almost drowns out at sea because he got too cocky and swam out too far.
Sun Seto (a MC) saves him. She’s a mermaid of sorts.
Tradition in Sun’s family dictates they have to get engaged and that’s where the
Sun Seto’s family are basically Yakuza, which ends up being one of the highlights of its comedy.
K-On is an
Their band is named – after school tea time. A ridiculous name in itself but that’s just a hint as to how stupid and funny this
- Yui Hirasawa is the airheaded, easy going character of the group.
- Ritsu Tainaka is the clown who’s usually fooling around with Yui.
- Mio Akiyama is the
introvertwho’s hard working, strict and motivated.
- And Asuza is the rounded character who balances everything out.
6. Dagashi Kashi
Dagashi are cheap sweets sold in Japan. Priced from 1 yen, 10 yen, 100 yen and up.
I’ll say the comedy isn’t for everyone and it’s not my favorite from this list, but it’s worthy.
Dagashi Kashi’s style is unique, but it should keep you entertained all the way through.
7. Maid Sama
The two main characters in this show are Misaki Ayuzawa & Usui Takumi.
Misaki is a strong female character who’s a student council president by day, and works hard to make
She’s embarassed y her maid job so she doesn’t tell anyone about it. Though Usui Takumi finds out about it.
Usui himself is the sarcastic, troll type of character who does the most unpredictable sh*t.
Besides the eventual romance, Maid Sama is hilarious and one of the funniest, most quality rom coms I’ve watched.
8. Squid Girl
Of course it doesn’t go that way. And as it takes an interesting turn, humorous episodes follow-suit. And the creative play on words make this unlike any other comparable
This is even more true in the dubbed version of Squid Girl, which is miles ahead of the sub.
It’s one of those
9. The Disastrous Life Of Saiki K
The Disastrous Life Of Saiki K is like a dilluted version of Gintama. You won’t find fan service here or “naked” body shots.
That’s part of Saiki K’s charm.
And with the main character being a psychic since birth, and his reluctance to socialize (he’s an
I’ve seen nothing like it.
Gamers is the #1
It’s all in the name. Geeks, nerds, Otaku’s and anyone who loves video
Even the comedy uses video game references and jokes to in so many different episodes.
You’ll enjoy this
Hitoribocchi is that one relatable school
The main character – Hitori, has social anxiety and can’t socialize to save her life. Ironically this is related to her “new” goal, which is to befriend everyone in her new school.
You can see where this is going.
The comedy is connected to Hitori’s attempts at making friends, and it puts you in her shoes since it’s so realistic and true to life in some ways.
12. Sket Dance
Sket Dance is a treasure I’ve never heard anyone talk about in the
The set up is 3
- Switch (Usui)
All 3 characters run a group called sket dance in school. A group dedicated to helping anyone with their problems.
Even if those problems are stupid and ridiculous, it’s all fair game.
For such a simple set up the comedy is the rare kind you only find in a couple of
13. Good Luck Girl
Good Luck Girl’s like the female version of Gintama.
The main character is obviously a woman. Ichiko Sakura. A spoilt little sh*t who expects everything from the world, but cries when she has to do anything for herself.
She’s raised this way, so it’s not entirely her fault.
This is where the comedy comes in, especially when the poverty god shows up to “take” happiness away from Ichiko’s perfect, rich lifestyle.
I like the character development here. It’s surprisingly good for a comedy, but relevant as well.
14. Aho Girl
Aho Girl is another “female” Gintama in its own ways. But it’s a lot more extreme than examples like Good Luck Girl.
In fact the comedy is so extreme you’re either gonna grow to love it or hate it to death.
Yoshiko (the MC) loves Banana’s, and is stupid. Not just when it comes to school, but life in general.
15. The Devil Is A Part Timer
The Devil Is A Part Timer, it’s all in the name of the title.
Satan ends up on earth after being chased by Hero Emilia, an angel from Ente Isla.
On earth neither character can use their powers, so they’re forced to live like humans, get passports, jobs, and rent out their own properties for the time being.
For a demon related
16. Hyperdimension Neptunia
Hyperdimension Neptunia is based off the PlayStation video
Each character is basically a CPU.
The story doesn’t have much to it so it’s comparable to something like K-On or Lucky Star. Except Hyperdimension is in a sci-fi, technology driven world.
Neptune is the funniest character, but the support characters make this
- Nodame Cantabile.
- New Game!
- Haganai: I Don’t Have Many Friends.
- Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid.
