I haven't been keeping up with anime as much as I would like and that's mainly because I haven't found anything that has kept my interest since the days of Outlaw Star and Tenchi. Right now, I'm looking for anime that is funny and random. So please tell me, what's the funniest anime you've seen?

The funniest I've seen recently would be Sket Dance and Nichijou. They both funny but Nichijou is the randomest (completely)

I'll second Sket Dance as it's the funniest I've seen recently. But Kodocha is probably my favorite funny/random anime as it throws in just enough character development/drama to keep things moving along.

Yondemasuyo, Azazel-san is really funny if you don't mind dirty jokes.

Guess Bobobobobo?

Oh man, Random/funny anime is one of my farite genres lol, I'll concure with most, I am currently in love with Nichijou and SKET Dance, but the classics for me is Lucky Star, Azumanga Daioh, and Pani Poni Dash.

I found this old anime tape from the late 90s at my library called Dragon Half. ADV really hyped up the comedy of this show on the box saying it was like the funniest anime ever. It was so bad I couldn't even watch the second episode, though it probably has to do with the absolutely terrible voice acting then the story or actual script. It's on YouTube if anyone dares to watch it, or can convince me to watch the second half.

Dai Mahou Touge. Can't remember its American name, but its by far the funniest anime I've ever seen. Something anime and non anime fans alike can appreciate. Doubly funny if you enjoy the magical girl genre as it frequently references that.

If you want random and funny, Arakawa Under the Bridge is pretty good.

Ah, someone else remembers Dragon Half. Back when there were independent rental stores in Schaumburg, I rented the subbed VHS. I thought it was quite crazy, but it didn't leave much of an impression. It's based on a longer comic series.

Kodocha is another old favorite which I first experienced through the old "Barney purple" fansub tapes. I recall that I watched the first 26 episodes (tons of hyper comedy, but also quite a bit of plot and very sympathetic characters). After that, there was a bunch of filler, which is mostly comedy. Despite having 102 total episodes, the TV series somehow lacks the conclusive ending that's in the ten volume comic series (translated version long out of print).

The licensed version of Dai Mahou Touge is called Magical Witch Punie-chan. It's been released as sub-only and dual language.

Dr Slump is a rather funny comic series. Might take some effort to find the translated volumes. Neither of its TV anime adaptations have been licensed or fansubbed.

And as for Angel Beats... having watched just a few episodes, it only has a modest amount of comedy. I believe the series can be accurately described as a drama with downright tragic characters.

One that didn't get mentioned yet -- Seitokai Yakuindomo. This show is wall to wall dirty comedy. Very few of its jokes are safe for work.

Sayonara Zetsubou-sensei is about as funny/random as you can get. First season, anyway...

School Rumble is pretty damn hilarious as well (dub highly recommended). Oh, and Ghost Stories as well! The English dub completely picks apart the terrible story line and makes it into a great show.

One of the funniest I can think of is probably Soul Eater. Pretty much any scene involving BlackStar getting his butt handed to him and Kid Death having a freak out had me in stitches lol. And if you want random, you can't go wrong with FLCL :)

Decided not to bring a signature book due to lack of interest.
