2. Synopsis

Roaming the halls of the all-boys Sanada North High School are three close comrades: the eccentric ringleader with a hyperactive imagination Hidenori, the passionate Yoshitake, and the rational and prudent Tadakuni. Their lives are filled with giant robots, true love, and intense drama… in their colorful imaginations, at least. In reality, they are just an everyday trio of ordinary guys trying to pass the time, but who said everyday life couldn’t be interesting? Whether it’s an intricate RPG reenactment or an unexpected romantic encounter on the riverbank at sunset, Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou is rife with bizarre yet hilariously relatable situations that are anything but mundane.

3. Intermediate can Learn Japanese with This Anime

The rate of occurrence of difficult words is 6.2, which is not a small number, but because it is a gag animation, various words appear, not only in one genre. Moreover, this work has a lot more words than other gag animations. Therefore, it can be said that the work is difficult to use as a teaching material unless the learner is advanced. And if you’re using it for learning, look at how fast male high school students are speaking and what they’re saying.
