Funniest Animes Ever

The Top Ten

1 Gintama Gintama Gin Tama, also styled as Gintama, is a Japanese manga written and illustrated by Hideaki Sorachi and serialized, beginning on December 8, 2003, in Shueisha's Weekly Shōnen Jump.

Overrated anime

Takes some time to get going and getting used to, but once it hits it's funny as all hell.
A lot of the jokes will be lost in translation though since many of them are very Japan-centric, but for everyone of those there's a million other ones that will still leave you laughing out loud

Simply awesome

Gintama will hit you hard when you least expect. When you are laughing your ass off, it will throw some emotional stuff, when you're crying, it will throw comedy at perfect timing, and when you feel like it's just some light hearted filler episode, it will change into intense fight scene and awesome plot to throw you off balance, that's gintama for ya.

2 Hetalia

Hetalia has made me laugh until my sides hurt. ESPECIALLY the dub (It's one of the few anime where I can say that the dub is better than the sub). If you didn't know, the show is about anthropomorphic countries. Most of the countries are turned into hot men. The show focuses on what historical events would be like if they were people, with most of the show centering around WWII.
America in particular has made me laugh so hard that I've started crying. All of the other characters are also very funny. You should really give Hetalia a try if you're looking for a super funny anime!

Oh man, Hetalia is the only anime to have me laughing so hard that I'm crying. Almost all of the characters are hysterically funny and since the show is about the countries of the world as people, they have some of the countries stereotyped perfectly! America is a VERY good example...
This anime is a show to definitely watch if you want a really funny comedy!

Its alright. And its only funny if you are well familiar with World History, which, in my case, I wasn't. Plus the episode are really short, 2-3 minutes maybe.

I would vote a million times if I could. Hetalia had me laughing at every episode!

3 Ouran High School Host Club Ouran High School Host Club Ouran High School Host Club is a manga series by Bisco Hatori, serialized in Hakusensha's LaLa magazine between the September 2002 and November 2010 issues. The manga has been adapted into a series of audio dramas, an animated television series directed by Takuya Igarashi and produced by Bones, a Japanese more.

This is so funny and I almost died laughing... Not really

Makes me laugh my ass off. tamaki is the best - YOUnique253

You just have to look at all their, how should I put this, 'bright' personalities. Kyoya senpai is just so mean, Honey senpai is adorable, Mori Senpai is the tough cool guy but Honey breaks that, the twins are so preverted and Creepy, Tamaki is just something of his own design, and Haruhi is the most Oblivious you could ever meet. I swear to blah bflahf sa anime gahd, that this could possibly the first anime that has literally made me laugh so hard until it hurt.

Its not the best anime, but its definitely one of the funniest! I don't know how many times I rewatched it 😂

4 Nichijou Nichijou


I swear I thought Yuuko was a boy and this anime looks like an American parody. It has the best intro ever though.

I think Yukko and Mio's relationship are really cute and I love Mio's wooden cubes. I wish there were a top ten best Nichijou characters it would be fun to say what I think of all of them!

This is a perfect example of making the most of an abusive animation budget. They make jokes like most slice of life comedies, but when the joke normally would stop, they just keep going until it reaches the point of absolute, physics-breaking insanity. This series is what made me think to myself, "that's it. I need to watch more slice of life anime." I still have yet to find one that tops Nichijou, though, & I know for sure that I will never get bored with this anime no matter how many times I re-watch it. Why couldn't MY ordinary life be like this?

5 Soul Eater Soul Eater Soul Eater is an anime series directed by Takuya Igarashi and produced by Bones, Aniplex, Dentsu, Media Factory, and TV Tokyo, which adapts the Soul Eater manga written and illustrated by Atsushi Ohkubo.

I love it when Death the Kid loses his mind when there's asymmetry. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Soul x Blair was my favourite ship before I noticed how cool maka actually is but I don't know if maka and soul will end up dating beside I've only watched the first 6 episodes so I wouldn't know

This so is so funny especially with death the kid

6 Fairy Tail Fairy Tail Fairy Tail is a manga franchise created by Hiro Mashima. The manga has been adapted into an anime series produced by A-1 Pictures and Satelight, which began broadcasting in Japan on October 12, 2009. Additionally, A-1 Pictures and Satelight have developed seven original video animations and an animated more.

It's really funny as well as action packed,every character has a special and widely distinguishable sense of humor.

I love fairy tail like crazy and I think it's super funny, it's my second favorite anime and I'm glad I watched it because the characters are so different and put together, the anime is amazing.

It's so funny especially Happy

It's a really funny anime.. u should give it a try.. it's my favourite anime

7 KonoSuba: God's Blessing on This Wonderful World! KonoSuba: God's Blessing on This Wonderful World!

Probably one of the funnies animes I have watched, as literally every episode made me laugh.

I saw some people watching the first episode of this anime when I was in my English class for tutoring. It's kind of like Sword Art Online (don't get me wrong, I still love it, but I just thought about how it's similar to KonoSuba.), but with tons of comedy. The characters are really hilarious and I really like Kazuma and Aqua. I SO have to watch this anime! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

The incompetence in the main characters makes up for some solid comedic moments.

Like HOW IS THIS WAY BACK ON THE LIST? It's hilarious! This anime is targeted to practically anyone and will fit whether you generally like this genre or not. It's amazing and feels far more fresh than most "comedy" anime.

8 Baka and Test

Hands down one of the funniest animes ever made. Every character is hilarious and the episodes get funnier and funnier every second. It never gets old, and it definitely deserves to be placed among the ranks of School Rumble and The Melancholy or Haruhi Suzumiya

Why is this not in the top 3? SERIOUSLY! This is one of the funniest animes of all time!

One of the best and funniest animes ever made. Should be in top 3.

This anime revived my obsession for anime...THIS SHOULD BE ON TOP!

The Contenders

11 Angel Beats! Angel Beats! Angel Beats! is a 13-episode Japanese anime television series produced by P.A.Works and Aniplex and directed by Seiji Kishi.

I can not stop laughing!

It is very funny, but really sad at the same time. My favourite anime!

I chose Angel beats (I also love Ouran high school host club but this was so down on the list) because the Rocket chairs made me laugh uncontrollably! Although this is a sad anime (like You’re Lie In April), it makes people feel joy when they help each other and they try to accomplish their dreams (which most of them do). =^~^=

12 One Punch Man One Punch Man One-Punch Man is an ongoing, online, web comic, which was later adapted into a Manga and Anime series .

Funniest ever

13 School Rumble

Around episode 5 it picks up and you can't stop watching after that, it's flat out HILARIOUS. I don't think there is a character you can dislike. Perverted moments but funny after moments. Nothing is dull about this anime.

The best misunderstanding anime romance comedy ever

Funniest anime I've ever seen. And I've seen plenty.

The Best anime ever!

23 Nisekoi Nisekoi

Everything - the storyline, characters, voice actors, art, ships - is just great

Bro, this so hilarious! I enjoy the great voice acting, the bight colors, and the characters! The charters are the best part about the anime! Warning! shippers ahead! - yese30

I love anime, especially if there is a tsundere 10/10

24 Azumanga Daioh

I am absolutely disgusted that this isn't in the top 3. It's not onlu the funniest anime ever, it's one of the funniest pieces of animation ever.

25 Shugo Chara Shugo Chara
26 Sket Dance

Lot lot lot of jabs


For me, Sket Dance shows us realllyy funny moments. I mean in each episode, who wouldn't laugh. I like that this anime doesn't only focus on comedy, but has a serious side. *cough*(The episodes of Bossun, Himeko, and Switch) I would really recommend this to you if your looking for comedy.

27 Golden Boy
28 Kaichou wa-maid sama

Godamn comedy

30 Hataraku Maou-sama!

This is the second funniest anime I ve ever watched next to one punch
They are both awesome, funny and filled with action - ForceWizz

One of the funniest anime I’ve seen. You would never think that Satan disguised as a McDonald’s worker would bring a tear to your eye. I especially love Lucifer’s personality and character!

33 Slam Dunk Slam Dunk


34 Ouran Koukou Host Club

I personally don't think it's that funny but it was a nice anime and I liked the plot and characters, definitely worth checking out

One of the best animes I have ever seen.

This is already #5 on the list.

Ouran high school host club no 4? Haas to b number 1 man!

35 Ghost Stories

English dub is beautiful - Haumea

If you plan on watching this series comedically, watch the dub. It's so much funnier than what the original intended to be. - MasonOcker

Ghost Stories ain't your typical anime. It was originally a really bland and boring kids horror anime in japan, but it was rceieved so poorly in Japan that they said the english dubbers could do whatever they want, and because of this a masterpiece was born. (ONLY if you watch it in dub version) - Lollipopz

Beautiful. I'd put this right after Hetalia on my Top Ten comedy list- Lemme tell you, the top tens on this list aren't even really funny. OHSHC? Great anime, but not funny enough to top Ghost Stories. Soul Eater? I love DTK, But seriously? Not that funny, or good for that matter!
