That Time Square Enix and Sunrise Came Together to Make...A Comedy?

As far as the anime studio Sunrise goes, they're pretty much well established and are one of the few anime studios that have been working and functioning well since the 1970s. They're best known as the studio that makes the incredibly successful 'Gundam' franchise starting with Mobile Suit Gundam in 1979. This has made their brand synonymous with Mecha anime.

On the other hand, Square Enix is a company best known for their game franchises like Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts. It would make sense if you said that both these big names collaborated and made an action/adventure series, but in reality, they came together and made a comedy.

In 2009, Square Enix first published this series online in their online magazine called 'Gangan Online' and in 2011 Sunrise picked it up to be turned into a anime. You would expect that a studio focusing on Mecha and other action titles wouldn't be very good at lighthearted comedy, but it turned out to be the complete opposite.

Daily lives of High School Boys has managed to be one of the better comedy anime series out there, with a lot of funny moments that are deeply witty and intelligent. Many of their jokes are parodies of popular anime cliches.

The series revolves around three friends, Tadakuni, Yoshitake and Hidenori who get up to all sorts of crazy stunts during high school.One memorable scene involves the time the trio were curious how it felt to be a girl and Tadakuni is convinced by the other two to try out his sister's uniform, only for his sister to walk in on them.

Most of the series pivotal moments aren't based on any big plotline, just everyday occurrences which are deeply relatable, especially since it reminds many of us about the crazy things we did (or still do) with our friends that really make life fun.
