I wasn’t convinced when I saw the title 4 months ago because lets face it that title isn’t the selling point. I was plesently suprised after watching the PV with litriture girl and lets just say I’ve grown to love the anime.
This is one of the rare examples in anime where the jokes are always funny. Well I thought so anyway. There was no swing and miss like with Kill me Baby and none of the jokes take 20 minutes to set up like Nichijou did.
Recapping the jokes seems pointless at this time but I will say that I liked the idea of reoccurring jokes like the ones from the first episode which were edited and reused in the last episode. It reminds me of Cromartie High School’s first and last episodes a bit.
I’m also glad that the literature girl/Hidenori’s story got wrapped up nicely. He finally managed to spout nonsense like a pro and impress her.
If I had to pick a favorite character I’d have to say Hidenori or the student council but since they don’t really work as individuals I’m going to say Hidenori. All his interactions with women end with me laughing at him.
This is just an observation but I think all the female characters in this anime were stronger then the males. It gives them a scary aspect which removes the moe element of a cute high school girl. I also love this anime for mocking K-on at the end of the episode. I’m so proud of anime right now.
Daily Lives of High School Boys ends up at 67/154 on my top anime list which is one of the highest school comedies on my list. Similar anime I can think of are Cromartie High School, Nichijou and Azumanga Daioh.
