I think Zoku Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei is the best anime comedy bar none.
I'd say it's up there, but I personally found Azumanga Daioh generally funnier.
Countering with better comedy (though SZS is damn good)
Not in a long shout, it's very uneven and some episodes are extremely bland.
Cromartie High is much better.
Even fucking Potemayo was funnier.
If only Short Cuts or Franken Fran would get an anime, then I can counter your statement.
it's always fun to play a game of spot the differences with SHAFT's shows
I love tie !
I love tie !
Bland in some episodes
I think School rumble takes the cake here
Cromartie's anime is pretty shitty compared to the manga.
Still better than SZS though.
While Ouran is funny, I think ZSZS is far more clever in its satire, and given that it's purely satire, I won't be as pissed off with its non-event ending as much as I was with Ouran's.
I think it's genius. I've never seen an anime so ruthless in tearing anime/Japanese culture/culture in general a new one.
I found Potemayo, Gintama and Seto no Hanayome funnier.
It's a satire but it's not "clever", actually everthing in the anime is very straightforward.
It's not thought provoking or anything like that, it's not bad as a comedy anime but don't try to pass it for something it isn't.
Also there's not "better" humor, SZS doesn't get point just because it's a satire, the only important thing is the delivery and the comedy in Ouran was better executed in my opinion.
This man has a great taste.
In terms of humour, it's not that funny. I do like the social satire and visual style thogh. Watching it is really enjoyable.
You know, the fact that I misread that sentence in a completely wrong way is a sign I need to sleep.
SARCASM CAN HURT Y'KNOW ;_;
you people should read katte ni kaizou. that's the real art of kouji kumeta, while SZS is just references to other animus. well. zetsubou manga is pretty good, but there are references too. but the fuck someone is slow scanlating kaizou.
He is right, Potemayo, Seto and Gintama are definitely funnier than SZS, also much more fun to watch.
Oh, you guys weren't being sarcastic? my bad.
Definitely wasn't being sarcastic. Need second season for all of them. Fuck, they haven't even fully sub SnH. WTF! I want my NaGarsumi and San Chan!
These never existed, EVER!
Remember The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, /a/?
Well it damn well better still be your favorite show, so get out there and show some support for your Brigade Chief!!
I'll never forget Azumanga Daioh. It was my first exposure to anime.
Sorry, you were replaced in our hearts!
Potemayo season 2 WHERE?
Not seen that yet. Sorry.
underage b& ?
I will do what I must for the future of the SOS Brigade! Do your worst, any way you want!
Remember Pokemon? Don't forget it, /a/.
It was our favorite show.
Remember Evangelion? Don't forget it, /a/.
It was our favorite show.
I'd rather watch ZSZ than Lucky Star.
Lucky Star is not even remotely funny.
Here comes the shitstorm.
why would there be a shitstorm over that when it's right?
I'd rather watch Gintama than SZS.
SZS is not even remotely funny.
Here comes the shitstorm.
He probably means the
Disagree, I like this one better
We fucking need a second season.
We sure fucking do
zetsubou sensei's comedy is DEEP
you guys just don't understand it
Not at all. The fact that it's quite shallow and doesn't pull any punches, though, is part of its charm.
>>while SZS is just references to other animus
It does a lot more than that. Hell, most of the time it's talks about some fucked up thing in society (Japanese or general).
But the Giant Chiri/Sexy Kiri episode was fucking funny.
>>some fucked up thing in society
It doesn't do anything interesting with it though, like >>11329766 said SZS is pretty shallow.
It does have some funny episodes though but it's not consistent enough to be called the best.
SZS is by far the best anime comedy I have seen.
Is there a date for the ova ?
The social commentary is the real meat and potatoes, while the references are like icing on the cake
You are now imagining some sort of meat cake with frosting on it.
You should watch more anime.
Begin with these:
Ping Pong Club
Seto no Hanayome
Bitches don't know about my funny comedy.
Best of 2008 so far, maybe?
PPD, Excel Saga & School Rumble would like word with you. And they aren't even the best.
Watched most of these. They're not even good.
Oh, you are just a retard with a really shitty taste then, my bad.
No u. Easily amused much?
PPD is not very funny. PPP is superior.
PPD was LOLSHAFT done right unlike SZS.
PPP was LOL RANDOM garbage, how can you like it so much?
Now, you're trolling.
>>11329846 is the right answer.
I'd rank this above Excel Saga, myself. In the midst of the other two, will get back to you
Excel Saga was better than PPP.
Also, pic related for the first few episodes.
Anime can't be funny.
ITT acronyms I don't understand
Still it was much better than SZS and especially ZSZS.
Highly overated. It's alright, sure, but it isn't the best.
PPD = Pani Poni Dash
They lost me at PPP though.
PPP= Puni Puni Poemy
Puni Puni Poemi.
You know, in my day, a post like that would get a "lurk moar"
What exactly did you dislike about Excel Saga then?
Fail. You, sir, have obviously stolen somebody's precious thing.
Comedy anime you say?
not the guy who posted, but NABESHIN DURR
should have split up the Excel shit from the Nabeshin shit and made two completely different shows, would have been better that way
wasn't that funny
NO U, tripfag.
when I say comedy, i mean HARE NOCHI GUU.
You best be trollin' nigga.
What're we talking about?
That's because you're too immature to appreciate the satire. In a couple of years you'll get it (hopefully).
Curse you villain
OMG MIKU WAS IN IT
Please, Gintama is NOT fun
SZS is just great to watch: animations and design are a pleasure for eyes.
I've found Host club humor more immediate to and Harè+Guu even superior.
Excel Saga is just old (still funny) and Gintama is full of shit (its animations are full of shit too)
Narutaru. Shit was fucking hilarious.
>Gintama is full of shit (its animations are full of shit too)
This is true, and the best thing about it is the animators even take the piss out of their laziness.
If the animators and the voice actors don't take their show seriously, then why do YOU do?
