Similar Anime to Prison School

1. Gintama

  • Episodes: 201
  • Aired: April 4, 2006 - March 25, 2010

Gintama really lures you in immediately with its quirkiness, extreme humor, and many hilarious references to other anime. This journey takes us back to feudal Japan as we join Gintama on his crazy random adventures. This isn't your ordinary feudal Japan however, as every encounter Gintoki meets is unusually crazy, which is what adds the spice and flavoring to this tasty treat of a series. Gintoki isn't very keen on finding a job like most other citizens and so we see Gintoki on this endless adventure desperately seeking whatever job comes his way, while battling strange looking monsters, a weird Yakuza clan and much more.

As stated earlier, Gintama is just all over the place when it comes to its use of humor. The variety in which humor is used is incredible, ranging from crude all the way to just over the top and it's all packaged together brilliantly. Each time Gintama runs into enemies, they don't even feel like enemies since they all end up doing something so dumb, that you end up tearing up at their randomness. You'll have scenes where characters casually walk around naked, or someone getting beaten to a bloody pulp while getting shot at the same time. The nonstop craziness is what provides the flavor to the show, and lines up well with the humor Prison School portrays.

2. Yondemasu yo, Azazel-san

  • Episodes: 13
  • Aired: April 8, 2011 – July 1, 2011

This show is so full of crude humor that you'd swear you're watching a HBO series. Every scene that you watch is incredible, as both Akutabe and Azazel go at it, with Azazel getting killed every second. His friends however are where the humor goes to the extreme, as Beelzebub is a bird who gets turned on by the sight of fecal matter and, without any shame, devours it on screen. This unconventional humor is what makes this show such a blast to watch, because you're disgusted by it or laughing so hard at just how random it all is.

Akutabe's job is to summon demons in order to help his clients who are in trouble, but even his clients are something beyond this planet. For every problem that Akutabe solves, another one shows up more hysterical than the last, as he pummels Azazel to a bloody pulp for disobeying orders and watching ecchi. You'll see cakes made out of poo, eyeballs popping out of their sockets, and more in this extremely funny anime. If you aren't sold by this at all, even the trailer itself is funny enough to sell you, and you're lured into it you're stuck in a world of crazy over the top fun.

3. Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu Ni!

  • Aired: July 8, 2011 - September 30, 2011

Comedy anime never usually have a premise or some sort of direction that it takes you, it usually just throws in a wide variety of antics that keep you glued to the screen. Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu Ni! is
the sequel to the first part of the series as much of what happens revolves around Yoshii as he strolls through the halls of his school searching for answers he'll never find. His dense personality will have you scratching your head at first, until you dive more into it all to realize how much of a pervert this guy is. The show serves its true purpose as being a pure comedic blast from the moment you watch the first episode, up until the very end.

So you're probably wondering, but what about the story? There must be a story behi- No story to be found here as much of this show is all about unexpected events which just leave you cracking up at all times. Every ecchi scene results in a nosebleed, the romance aspect of the show is overpowered by the constant craziness that Yoshii goes through, and each character works together to create a comedic adventure that truly becomes a story within itself. If you're looking for moe, tsundere, yandere, lolicon, and perverts all under one roof with laughter as the icing on top, then Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu is right for you!

4. Detroit Metal City

  • Episodes: 12
  • Aired: August 8, 2008 - October 28, 2008

So now we embark on another journey in search of laughter, and we have arrived at Detroit Metal City. Of course none of what transpires throughout the show even takes place in Detroit which already makes you laugh just a little inside, and wonder why they used that name in the first place. The story looks at Negishi, who finds his current life to be a bore and decides to move into the big city of Tokyo. He comes up with an idea to be the front man of a death metal band known as Krauser II, but deep down would rather just sit at home and drink tea. Random right? You definitely don't need to remind us on that one.

This show is just tear inducingly funny using quick and unrelenting humor to hit you straight in the gut and keep you coming back for more. You'll see pelvic thrusting, extreme cursing, and just nonsensical things that are bound to have you falling back in your chair chuckling like a child. Each episode is short but undeniably sweet, as you're always in for a treat once the dialogue between characters rolls in. Each time one person tries to speak, another cuts them off with stark remarks that remind you of British slapstick comedy, with Negishi humiliating himself whenever an opportunity presented itself. These jokes are vulgar and poignant, slapping you in the face until you're tomato red, but so incredibly entertaining that you'll crave more each and every time.

5. Shimoneta to Iu Gainen ga Sonzai Shinai Taikutsu na Sekai

  • Episodes: 12
  • Aired: July 4, 2015 - September 19, 2015

So imagine living in a society where anything sexual and lewd has been banned, with any utterance of a word pertaining to the subject leading you into deep trouble. Well that's exactly what goes down in the series as the government has placed very strict rules upon the use of explicit actions, and so Okuma must somehow find a way to break this wall of injustice down before it's too late. He meets with Anna, a girl that he has a huge crush on but then must confront a much bigger problem with a terrorist group known as Blue Snow gets involved to fight against censorship laws.

Alright so where does the comedy kick in you ask? Right from the very beginning as this show tries so hard to abolish sex but then uses it in every scene possible to remind you just how much you can't avoid it. Blue Snow, who is also known as Ayame, wears a stylish pair of lewd panties over her head, while strutting her stuff in the latest white cloak with very little to show underneath. Every time Okuma tries to resist temptation and avoid getting arrested, lewd acts take place along with dirty and crude humor to bring it all together. The amount of dirty jokes you'll encounter are enough to make you wonder if this show actually invented dirty humor, since there's so much of it that you can't stop laughing. If you aren't crying by the end of this series, then rewatch it again, and then one more time until you realize the startling truth behind it all.

6. Seitokai no Yakuindomo

  • Episodes: 13
  • Aired: July 4, 2010 - September 26, 2010

Seitokai no Yakuindomo is a fantastic school comedy that really doesn't follow much of a plot, but provides a whopping dose of adult humor. Tsuda is a freshman in Ousai Academy and doesn't really know what to expect from it all, until one day he's surrounded by a group of attractive girls. Things get even more interesting as he somehow becomes vice president of the school council, and yet again finds himself in the company of girls. This hilarious story follows Tsuda as he must come to terms with this new life he's been bestowed with, while trying not to get on the wrong side of these girls who seem to already despise him already.

So where do we start, sexual humor? Check. Girls who are crass and have no remorse for the main character? Check. Excellent wordplay, paired with sharp witted remarks? Check. Seitokai no Yakuindomo isn't going to appeal to everyone's tastes, but we can assure you that you'll learn a lot of sex while watching this. The incredible amount of dirty jokes and references to ejaculation will have your head spinning, but just enough of a dosage to not scare you away. When you look at the incredibly down right dirty jokes that took place in Prison School, you immediately feel somewhat humbled by this show simply because you become so absorbed by all the laughter that you forget what's even happening. The show isn't about capturing your heart with a romantic tale of fantasy and pleasure, but a show that has absolutely no shame whatsoever, and over the top humor that'll leave you holding your ribs in extreme laughter.

Luckily for you, I bring you some recommendations to make the waiting a little sweeter. A small gift to stop you from biting your fingernails after watching the latest Prison School episode. Some of these are similar to Prison school in their storylines or in how funny and perverted they can be at the same time. Here you have it, 6 Anime like Prison School!

1. Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko (The Hentai Prince and the Stony Cat)

  • Episodes: 12
  • Aired: Apr 2013 – Jun 2013

Youto Yokodera is a young pervert; a high school student that only cares about girls, swimsuits, short skirts and the female anatomy. Somehow though, his lewd acts pass off as having the best intentions. Trying to stay true to his perversion, Youto prays to a cat statue that grants him his wish to openly express his desires.

He soon realizes that expressing his naughtiness wasn’t a good idea after all, since everyone can see the pervert in him. This puts him through some awkward and hilarious situations as he desperately tries to undo his wish and clean his reputation.

Do you laugh your butt off too every time Big Andre from Prison School gets aroused for getting beaten to death or spit on? Then you’ll have a blast watching the painfully honest pervert Youto being punished and humiliated by a cast of beautiful teens! Follow him on this ecchi romantic comedy, as popular as it is original.

2. Seitokai Yakuindomo

  • Episodes: 13
  • Aired: Jul 2010 – Sep 2010

The story in Seitokai Yakuindomo begins very much like Prison School. The Ousai Academy is accepting male students for the first time in its history. Takatoshi Tsuda didn’t pay attention to this fact and now has to adapt to school life surrounded by girls – girls who are used to being around only girls and speak way too openly about girl issues and sex.

This results in completely bizarre, awkward and funny conversations, most of which are about sex. For a show that is so much about sex, it’s weird there’s little to no ecchi in it. The perversion is still there though and you’ll have a couple laughs watching it.

3. Ladies versus Butlers!

  • Episodes: 12
  • Aired: Jan 2010 – Mar 2010

If one episode per week of Prison School does not fully satisfy you and you’re looking for some more ecchi (isn’t it what we’re all looking for?), then your search is over. Ladies versus Butlers has got the fan service we all like and that hint of romance to spice it up.

Akihano Hiru enters a boarding school as a butler. Very much like in Prison School, he is one of few male students in a high school full of beautiful girls. There’s a catch though, some of these girls are as beautiful as they are fearsome, and their sexiness is only rivaled by their loathing for men.

Ladies vs Butlers, just like Prison School and many other harem Anime, features a wide display of female archetypes. You’ll find the tsundere, the clumsy girl, the childhood crush, lolis and many more.

Most of them, of course, can’t help to see poor Akihano as a pervert. It doesn’t really help him much having a natural ability to slip, stumble and fall on girls’ breasts either. This makes the girls pretty mad, especially the tsundere girl, Sernia Flameheart who just doesn’t get tired of chasing Akihano to beat the heck out of him.

4. Iketeru Futari

  • Episodes: 16
  • Aired: Feb 1999 – Feb 1999

The relationship between the two main characters in Iketeru Futari reminds us of the relationship between the five boys and Meiko Shiraki (the vice president) in Prison School. That is to say, a perverted high school student that is constantly beaten down by his crush as a result of his improper behavior.

Keisuke Saji spends his days daydreaming about hot women and he can’t help but fall in love with Akira Koizumi. She is a small, cute girl from his school who hates men in general and perverts above all.

Iketeru Futari is a seinen comedy with a bit of romance and strong ecchi elements. It’s probably the funniest one on this list. You’ll have a great time watching naughty Keisuke’s desperate and pathetic attempts to win Koizumi over.

5. Tonagura!

  • Episodes: 13
  • Aired: Jul 2006 – Oct 2006

Another hilarious ecchi comedy is Tonagura. This is the story of Kazuki Arisaka, who’s always been in love with her neighbor and childhood friend, Yuuji, but hasn’t seen him for ten years. Now he has come back into her life, only that he hasn’t grown a bit. To Kazuki’s surprise, Yuuji is a dirty boy who tries at all costs to touch, grab and kiss Kazuki and her lady parts.

Naturally, Yuuji’s filthy behavior leaves Kazuki no choice but to put him in his place by kicking his behind on a regular basis. I personally laugh my face off when these perverts get punched in the face and smashed against the wall. That is one of the things I love about Prison School. That, and the fan service obviously. Well, this show has both those things!

6. Shimoneta to Iu Gainen ga Sonzai Shinai Taikutsu na Sekai (Shimoneta: A Boring World Where the Concept of Dirty Jokes Doesn't Exist)

  • Episodes: 12
  • Aired: Jul 2015 – Ongoing

The title of this anime pretty much summarizes what it’s about. In a near future, it is forbidden to talk about sex, to watch pornography and even to say profanities. Pretty much anything that can be considered indecent behavior is illegal. Tanukichi Okuma enters an elite high school of the highest moral standards but is soon blackmailed by Ayame Kajou to perform a series of obscene acts of ‘terrorism’ within the school.

Even though the girls in this show are not sadistic towards men, Shimoneta resembles Prison School in other ways; mainly in the toilet humor. Shimoneta is all about dirty jokes. We’ll experience the kind of hilarious obscenities Prison School got us used to, just like Gakuto’s epic fart in class and Kiyoshi’s hemorrhoid problems.

Also, the main character in Shimoneta, Ayame, is just as obsessed with sex as Kiyoshi, Joe, Andre, Gakuto and Shingo together. She takes perversion to a whole new level, exposing the innocent high school students to a display of sexual profanities never seen before.

You are guaranteed to have a blast with this outstanding school comedy with lots of ecchi in it. Ayame and Tanukichi’s pranks are as obscene and hilarious as they are didactic. After all, their purpose is to teach everyone how natural and benign sex and profanities are. Right?

I hope this list of recommendations may be useful to you. I’m a big fan of Prison School myself and I love how original it is in so many aspects. It is unique in many ways and there aren’t that many shows like it out there.

Hopefully, these selections will help you get some more of what you like so much about Prison School, whether it is the fan service, the jokes, the story or all of those things combined.
