Need some Daily Lives of High School Boys anime recommendations? When you go to an all-boys high school like Sanada North High School, you're bound to get a little bored. This is the case for three young boys, Hidenori, Yoshitake and Tadakuni who have to fill their lives with excitement by imagining it to be more than it is. A life filled with romance and giant robots just isn't going to fit in their very mundane schedule, but at least it's real enough in their head to make the days go by faster. Everyone has been in these characters' shoes at one point or another, and that's exactly how you'll feel once you've finished the series; totally bored. What you need is more anime like Daily Lives of High School Boys to keep you going! 

Baka and Test and Haven't You Heard? I'm Sakamoto are excellent recommendations because the humor is very similar with some-what relatable characters and hysterical high school antics. While both of them are certainly a little more fictional than Daily Lives of High School Boys, you'll definitely be able to see the similarities between the two as the characters go through issues any high schooler would face; it's just a little different when you're a charming anime character. 

Ready to relive your high school days in a more fantastical setting? Here are the best anime recommendations like Daily Lives of High School Boys that you should be watching! Vote up to let us know which of these series are your personal favorites.
