I personally think Nichijou is the funniest comedy anime around, how about you guys?

I haven't seen a lot of comedy animes, but definitely check out trigun and black lagoon was pretty funny. The devil is a part timer is pretty funny as well

The Ghost Stories ADV dub. Seriously, someone watch it so I'm not all alone in my hype.

You are not alone; indeed I've mentioned it a couple of times at least in passing.

FLCL is great, but it's a different kind of humour from Nichijou or Ghost Stories. I find Nichijou palls after a few episodes, and loses my attention - it gets too samey. Azumanga Daioh is wonderfully funny, though a rather gentler humour than Nichijou. And although it's not really quite a comedy, there's a lot of laughs in Martian Successor Nadesico. And don't forget Petit Eva: [email protected].

Golden Boy was the first anime I ever saw. I've been quite rude about it on a number of occasions - but yeah, it's pretty funny, too.

Mars of Destruction
Among the people who use the Internet, many are obtuse. Because they are locked in their rooms, they hang on to that vision which is spreading across the world. But this does not go beyond mere ‘data’. Data without analysis [thinking], which makes you think that you know everything. This complacency is nothing but a trap. Moreover, the sense of values that counters this notion is paralyzed by it.

And so we arrive at demagogy. - Hideaki Anno, 1996

I was a fan of Haganai, personally. My opinion is that the second season is far better than the first-- but the first season isn't bad. It should be watched before the second season, but it's not an ordeal; it's a fun show.

The Ultimate Teacher

the already Zany and cracked out setting is made even funnier by the hilarious miscasting of Piccolos VA in the English dub.

It defys explanation, you need to see it just to believe it exists.

:lol: How NOT to make an anime. I think I might actually like it just because of how bad it is.

I need to see this dubbed. Watching it subbed was okay, but a bad dub can make anything ten times more hilarious. Some anime are worth watching just because of it.

Looking at this thread, I'm surprised that so far everyone seems to have forgotten the time when Gainax ruined Christmas, even if I felt that particular show started off as a steaming pile and quickly turned into a trainwreck.

For straight gag shows, I'm going to second Dr. Nick's recommendation of Astro Fighter Sunred. I'm also liking Hoozuki no Reitetsu, for its similarly deadpan style.

Beyond that, we get into comedy-thriller territory, like Dirty Pair and the like (but not the above-mentioned second generation knock-off).

And let's not forget Cromartie High, GTO, and probably the best of all Gintama.

The frontier Dub of Lupin III just from how hard it tries to localize.

Ouran High School Host Club

Great anime, one of the best i have ever seen and it gave me some big laughs almost in every episode. One of the most underrated anime ever.

Hope that one day Bones will adapt the full manga.

Hm, I wouldn't FLCL to consider as funny per se, it's just batshit insane.
Funniest stuff I've seen so far would be Detroit Metal City. Go watch it. It's hilarious.

FLCL is funny cause it's great at mixing drama and slapstick comedy. Samurai Champloo did much the same thing, albeit with more emphasis on the Drama.

My favorite episode of Ouran is the one where the guys dress in drag in an attempt to keep Haruhi from joining the campus feminists.

FMP fumoffu, has a lot of great comedy. But it's also got waaaaaaay too much fan service for a guy like me.

I'm noticing interesting lack of SoL titles here. Perhaps people don't mentally classify classics like Azumanga Daioh as comedy? If they do it definetly belongs in any list of "best anime of genre" it is particular to.

Nice, Xard. That's nice.
