I don't watch many down-to-earth anime, but Love Hina might float your boat.

I'm sure this topic has been brought up before, but I couldn't find a recent thread so I thought I'd ask around.
Anyone know of any series which were laugh-out-loud funny? I'm not looking for something like Excel Saga, but more situational comedy (sitcom). Any suggestions?
there is one anime that has all three things that makes a good anime: action, romance and of course, comedy. and the one i'm speaking of is of course the legendary "Rurouni Kenshin"!!! that show is the greatest! so if you are interested they are showing it on saturdays on cartoon network at 11:00 and also at 12:00 is .hack//sign! also there is the knights of the zodiac at 12:30. well i hope you find a hilarious anime out there! :anime:
Dragon-Half is a classic, but I didn't think it was that funny.
Ebichu had me rolling on the floor laughing my frickin' butt off though, it's one of Gainax's greatest works, EVER!
For fanservice, skip Love Hina and go for "Golden Boy" (although I also Love Hina, just not as laugh-out hilarious as Golden Boy).
For sheer craziness, try "Goldfish Warning!" and "Blazing Transfer Student" (another Gainax gem).
And three anime with the greatest-sounding names ever: "Bite me! Chameleon" and the rolls-right-off-your-tongue "Butt Attack Punisher Girl Gotaman" and "Amazing Mister Masaru: Sexy Commando Side Story!"
Seriously, they make South Park and Beavis and Butthead look like Sesame Street by comparison...
Edit: Oops, I didn't read that part where you wanted "sitcom-funny". I never thought sitcoms were that funny in the first place, but if you're looking for that type of humour in anime, there's Kare Kano (another Gainax work) and Kodomo no Omacha, and what the guy said below me, GTO.
If you are not offended easily, GTO is really laugh out loud hilarious.
If you're the easily-offended type, forget what I said earlier, cauze if you find GTO offensive, you'll definitely squirm in your seats when you see Ebichu or other anime like Butt Attack Punisher Girl Gotaman and Sexy Commando Side Story...
Thanks for the suggestions.
I've already seen some of the more popular series (Love Hina and Kenshin) and have been thinking about GTO for some time. I'll have to look into the other series...
Azumanga Daioh is just freaking hilarious, if you can deal with the fact that the episodes are mostly collections of shorts. "I bet Sakaki is sucking the height outta Chiyo-chan!"

Nice to see another Bonta-Kun :anime:

Yeah, I definitely agree with Azumanga. Other titles that haven't been mentioned yet:
Jungle Wa Itsumo Hare Nochi Guu (if you can handle the idea that the title character is a girl who has a freaky world in her stomach)

Pokemon, particulary in its native Japanese, is very funny! Not only is it good clean fun for all ages, but Team Rocket's Musashi, Kojiro, and Nyarth have incredible chemistry. Since the animation is done around the voices, it's so much better than the English version, since you have do basically act like the Japanese voice actor as best you can, which can be difficult.
So, once again, if you can, Japanese Pokemon. English episodes are fine, too, but you won't know what you're missing.
Another reason why shows in their original language are better than their dubbed counterparts. *Shudders at the Japanese Simpsons*
Speaking of Pokemon, I strongly advise to the person who created this thread to avoid Seasons 3-6 of the show like the freaking plauge, unless you want hours of your life wasted on unorginal, unfunny drivel.
Secondly, Excel Saga owns, and Love Hina is only good with the Manga sadly.
Tenchi is also pretty damn funny, (except "Tenchi in Tokyo")
Everyone makes Johto sound like SARS. It's not that boring! In fact, I think it's pretty damn good! Wait, that doesn't sound very convincing, coming from a Pokemon fanboy. Well, if I was a casual Pokemon viewer, I would still like Johto. Every show has its stinkers, and Johto does happen to have quite a few, but that's because it went on for three years. Trust me, things get even better than Kanto when Hoenn starts.Originally Posted by Dr.Zar

Ranma 1/2 and Oh My Goddess are some very funny animes!
