The spring 2018 anime season is only half way through, but we are already realizing a rather grave reality. Some of our favorite comedy anime like Mahou Shoujo Ore, Hinamatsuri and Wotaku ni Koi wa Muzukashii are wrapping up. That means in only a few months, we here at Honey’s Anime will be without our desperately needed comedy anime!
Well, in reality, the summer 2018 anime season isn’t too far off. This means we just need to examine what shows we need to be on the lookout for this coming 2018 summer season.Join us as we look at our 3 Anticipated Comedy Anime for Summer 2018! We will make sure our laughter doesn’t die and nor does yours!
High Score Girl
- Episodes: N/A
- Aired: Jul,2018 - N/A
There’s a big misconception that girl gamers can’t stand toe to toe with guy gamers. However, we here at Honey’s Anime have played against our fair share of skilled gamer girls and are reminded that gender has very little to do with gaming prowess.
That’s why High Score Girl from Studio J.C. Staff has our attention as it deals with our main man Yaguchi Haruo, who just so happens to be an avid gamer, losing to a girl named Oono Akira. We can’t wait to see what this Oono Akira can pull off in High Score Girl as it sounds both hilarious that she whips a guy who thinks he’s the best player ever, and equally looks to be a good series filled with gaming references. Keep your eyes glued to July 2018 as that’s when episode one of High Score Girl drops!
Jashin-chan Dropkick (Dropkick On My Devil!!)
- Episodes: N/A
- Aired: Summer 2018- N/A
Jashin-chan Dropkick totes itself as a slapstick comedy, and that has us quite intrigued here at Honey’s Anime HQ. Very little is known about Jashin-chan Dropkick, but it seems to focus on a lolita girl named Yurine who summons a demon girl and now must try to survive constant attempts on her life. With a focus on humor rather than serious death/horror, Jashin-chan Dropkick seems to be a solid comedy anime releasing sometime in the summer season. Will Jashin-chan Dropkick be on par with other demon focused anime like Monster Musume or Demi-chan wa Kataritai? Honestly, we don’t know but the synopsis alone has us laughing a bit and we’re going to hope the final product will do the same.
Yuragi-sou no Yuuna-san (Yuuna and the Haunted Hot Springs)
- Episodes: N/A
- Aired: Jul, 2018- N/A
You know what two genres go well together to make truly laugh out loud moments? If you said ecchi and harem then you win a prize because that is exactly the pairing. In Yuragi-sou no Yuuna-san, we already can see a lot of potential fan service with a guy who sees ghosts and a girl who happens to haunt a hot springs inn he now lives at.
We have seen enough shows like Yuragi-sou no Yuuna-san and yet we don’t ever grow tired of the possible nosebleed inducing moments. Equally, we’re sure many anime viewers out there don’t hate those particular moments either...for reasons we won’t discuss. Regardless though, Yuragi-sou no Yuuna-san looks to be a pretty humours ecchi themed anime with supernatural themes and some harem bits and that is why it should be on your radar for potential comedy anime this summer 2018 season.
From the looks of it, this summer 2018 anime season won’t be having a ton of comedy anime like the spring season did before it. Yet, we’re confident the three shows we mentioned above will rise to the challenge of making our stomachs burst from non-stop laughter. Are there any other shows you think will be good comedy anime this coming summer season?
