Every gal needs a hearty laugh now and then, and we can always count on comedies to shake things loose. Whether it is physical, self-deprecating, absurd, witty, or poking fun at everyday life, many anime series present to female audiences a range of humor. We hope that one of these series can make a girl’s day brighter.

With that said, we present a list of the top ten comedy anime for girls. We know there are many more comedies out there that get us ROFL and here’s what we’ve gathered so far!

10. Shounen Maid (Shonen Maid)

  • Episodes: 12
  • Aired: April 2016 – July 2016

Shounen Maid is a story about Chihiro Komiya, an elementary school student who lost his parents at a very young age.

After agreeing to take Chihiro in, upon arriving at his uncle’s digs, with vast amounts of dust, garbage, and a filthy mess. Chihiro’s duties kick in, and his life as his uncle’s maid is bound to be amusing.

The story of a boy who loses it all sounds like a very depressing plot, but this anime turns things around with a frilly maid’s outfit and outbursts of hilarity. With its simplistic story and lack of dull moments, Shounen Maid is a comedy that girls would find funny because of Chihiro’s circumstances and uniform.

9. Mahou Shoujo Ore

Mahou Shoujo Ore follows the story of 15-year-old Saki Uno. Part of the pop-idol duo “Magical Twin,” her idol success remains at a low.

When Saki discovers that her mother used to be a magical girl, she learns that this ability was passed onto her. With the help of a Yakuza-like mascot character named Kokoro, Saki can transform into "Magical Girl Ore" to fight cute monsters who threaten to kidnap Mohiro. Sounds pretty awesome right?! Unfortunately, her magical girl form is that of a burly, muscular man in a small, cute, girlish uniform. How embarrassing!

Kick back, relax, anime and chill. Tanaka-kun wa Itsumo Kedaruge holds a pretty self-explanatory premise, a story about a high school student who is listless. Tanaka unsteadily slithers by, doing the most without doing much. He’s super lucky to have a friend like Oota, a guy who picks up his slack. Tanaka doesn’t expect much out of life, but this anime is surprisingly comical because the characters bring each episode to life.

Many have attempted to topple his effortless charisma, but fail to achieve his standing. As they observe and mimic his every move or even try to knock him down, everyone wonders how Sakamoto’s got it goin’ on. Playing his arm as a wind instrument, sashaying into the schoolyard to avoid being tardy, or looking like a hot soap opera male lead, everything Sakamoto does is ridiculously outlandish, and that is why this zany comedy is great for gals.

2. Barakamon

  • Aired: July 2014 – September 2014

Seishuu Handa is a talented calligrapher with great potential and doesn’t look too bad either. As his popularity is rising, his ego is growing as well, and no one likes a show-off.

In contrast, this environment forces Seishuu to find new inspiration but is having a hard time doing so because of the natives butting into his creative space. Don’t you hate being distracted?

When I’m taking a break from work/studies, I enjoy a variety of anime, passing a lot of time binging episodes alongside my husband.

I’m pretty shy, so writing here has been a great outlet for me to come out of my box.
