If you’ve never heard the term “slapstick,” it refers to a comedy in which the main character keeps getting hurt. That is, they either get too many hits or have a lot of bad luck on their side.
For example, Raidou from Aharen-san wa Hakarenai is constantly struggling to get Aharen-san to speak. So, we’re going to show you 15+ of the BEST Slapstick Comedy Anime! So, without further ado, let us begin!
16. Aharen-san wa Hakarenai
Aharen-san wa Hakarenai tells the story of Matsuboshi Raidou, who recently graduated from middle school. He’s an unapproachable figure who makes everyone nervous. Since he is starting high school for the first time, he wishes to make new friends. Unfortunately, his next bencher is the soft-spoken Reina.
She made his first day of high school difficult by not speaking loudly. As a result, Raidou believed he was being ignored. But as they grew closer, they discovered more about each other. Because our main character suffers a lot, this anime is ideal for fans of slapstick comedy. (in a positive way)
15. Graffiti Girl Graffiti
Holo No Graffiti tells us about the absurd yet hilarious daily lives of V-Tubers (Virtual YouTubers). When your own life isn’t interesting enough, it’s always fun to look at other people’s. No, that wasn’t an attack. Anyway, this anime is full of mishaps and cute moments. As a result, it is deserving of inclusion on the list of BEST Slapstick Comedy.
14. Fruits Basket
Fruits Basket, in my opinion, is the best anime to explain Slapstick Comedy. When the characters in this anime transform into their zodiac animals, they become wild, causing our innocent MC, Tooru, to suffer.
What’s the story of the anime? It tells us about Tooru, a 16-year-old girl who lost her mother in an accident.
She moved in with her grandfather, but she can’t live with him anymore because his house is being renovated. She tried sleeping in a tent one night, but after it was destroyed by a landslide, Yuki and Shigure Soma invited her to live with them!
When hugged by their opposite sex, the Soma family can transform into their zodiac animals. So, if you want to see how their interactions went, watch Fruits Basket!
13. Mr. Osomatsu/Osomatsu-San
Mr. Osomatsu is a hilariously funny parody anime! It tells the story of six identical siblings who are completely different in personality. They are identical but have different objectives. Some of them, for example, are looking for girlfriends, while others are looking for the perfect job. They are desperately looking for ways to improve their social standing.
When you start watching it, it’s a really fun story. Being identical and making mistakes at the same time is next-level slapstick comedy. So keep an eye on Mr. Osomatsu!
12. Nichijou: My Ordinary Life
Nichijou follows the high school lives of childhood friends Mio Naganohara, Yuuko Aioi, and Mai Minakami. Their stories are intertwined with the genius Hakase Shinonome.
