Trinity Seven

First on our best action comedy anime list is Trinity Seven, undoubtedly one of the best in its genre!

The story starts with Arata Kasuga’s town facing a disaster called the “Breakdown Phenomenon,” making it invisible and nowhere to be found!

Fortunately, Arata can use a magical book from his friend Hijiri Kasuga to reconstruct his own world. Yes, you read that right!

After joining the academy, his mission is to investigate the phenomenon that happened in his town. To do that, he forms a group with Lilith, and six others become the Trinity Seven.

Now, their only goal is to save Arata’s friend, prevent the destruction of his hometown, and face all the problems occurring together at their magic school.

The show is, of course, a bit of humor and a lot of action, along with some ecchi elements on the side.

24. High School DxD:

High School DxD

High School DxD is one of the most popular shows in the ecchi genre but stopped because it’s not all about adult stuff. It has one of the best action and fight scenes and, of course, humor that should be much appreciated too.

The story basically revolves around our main protagonist Issei Hyoudou, also renowned as the Red Dragon Emperor, and his infamous friends from the Occult Research Club.

They all basically fight many kinds of enemies like fallen angels, devil, and other dragon users as well.

The series is full of a blast with the sexiest female characters and humorous and most perverted protagonists. With the best fighting scenes between groups of fallen angels and other enemies. Truly the best recommendations all in one show!

23. Dirty Pair:

Dirty Pair

Dirty Pair is one of the veteran shows from the 1980s, and the story is about two teenage girls named Kei and Yuri who travel around the universe solving tough criminal cases.

They are also renowned as “The Lovely Angels” and as “The Dirty Pair” because they are often scolded for causing damage, which they don’t like for sure.

In the show, they both go on investigating a person making fake money, trying to stop someone from taking hostages, and trying to get to know a character named Shasti.

The show goes from being a fun and entertaining adventure to a real action-packed series and a must-watch for sure!

22. Katekyo Hitman Reborn:

Katekyo Hitman Reborn

The story of yet another super cool action comedy anime, Katekyo Hitman Reborn, begins with the character Tsunayoshi Sawada, who is, in fact, not very good at doing any work because he’s clumsy, not very talented, and has a huge crush on the popular girl named Kyouko Sasagawa. His classmates mostly call him “Loser Tsuna” because he often loses his fights in middle school.

But his life soon changes when he encounters Reborn, a very mysterious hitman who is also a baby. Yes, you read that right!

As for his past, Reborn is sent from the very strongest Mafia family in Italy with the only goal to train Tsuna to become the next boss of the Vongola family.

Now the question is, will the sore loser like Tsunayoshi get trained well to fight and be at the top, or will his life remain the same? For that, you have to watch this best combo show for real!

Ranma ½

My personal favourite on this list with super cool action consists of martial art and hilarious characters. This show is just like a diamond in a coal mine.

The story revolves around our main protagonist, Ranma Saotome, who is a skilled martial artist, but he has real bad luck because during his training with her dad, he falls into a cursed spring that turns him into a girl. Yes, you read that right!

And now, only hot water can fix him and reverse him into a boy. The story takes a drastic change when he is arranged with a girl named Akane to marry, who is quite stubborn. And, of course, they both didn’t want to marry each other.

Now the real question is, how will he get free of this curse? Well, his life is full of adventure, and finding a way out of it makes it hilarious. Obviously, a must-watch!

20. Akiba Maid Wars:

Nagomi soon realizes that maid cafes are not as she has dreamed about. But still, she tries to find joy in the conflicting situation and tries to fit in the harsh reality of Akihabara’s maid culture.

The journey of being an ideal maid and living her dream maid life will be really adventurous, and yes, it will be humorous to watch a cute maid have a war between them. If you know, you know!

Buddy Daddies

The show was much hyped up on its release because of its being very similar to the Spy x Family theme. But this action comedy anime has its own uniqueness and storylines which are definitely a must-watch!

Well, the story starts on a Christmas Eve, where a four-year-old Miri travels to Tokyo all alone just to find her lost dad. Yes, you read that right!

Even though they have taken huge risks to their careers, they decided to give Miri a normal childhood by being her father and providing her with all the love she deserves.

But their journey to raise a child won’t be easy, and it’s an action-packed journey with fun adventure to it. Definitely a must-watch show!

18. Konosuba (more comedy less action):


Here comes one of the top-rated comedy anime not just for its insanely humorous plot but for insanely humorous characters. And it’s the best comedy show in a century (and no one can change my mind on this).

Well, for the action part, it may disappoint you with little to no action, but don’t worry; thereare a few fight scenes that are worth a watch for sure!

The story of Konosuba begins with the funniest and most embarrassing death scene of a high school student named Kazuma Satou, also our main protagonist, who meets the cutest yet annoying goddess named Aqua. And yes, if I’m saying it’s the most embarrassing death scene shown in an anime series, then trust me it is, and of course, it is funniest as well!

Well, she provides him with two choices: whether he chooses to go to heaven or be reborn in an amazing fantasy world full of good things.

Our main protagonist Kazuma picks the second option, but he will drag his enemy who made a joke of his death, and yes, I’m talking about Aqua; she drags her with him as his companion.

Now, they have to face together the challenges of real-life survival, like working to pay for their living expenses, rather than having a wonderful adventurous journey.

17. Kenichi: History’s Mightiest Disciple:

Kenichi: History’s Mightiest Disciple

The story of Kenichi: History’s Mightiest Disciple starts with a normal high schooler named Kenichi Shirahama who faces bullying in the karate club. Instead of training himself to fight back, he spends his time reading self-help books. Not such a cool move for sure.

But things change when he accidentally scares a new classmate named Miu Furinji, who apologizes to him, and they soon become good friends. Soon he gets challenged by bullies of the karate club. Kenichi asks Miu’s help in improving his fighting skills as she is one of the skilled fighters as well.

She tells him to visit her grandfather’s dojo, Ryouzanpaku, where skilled but eccentric martial arts masters train themselves to be the best in their skills of martial arts. He started training in the dojo, but his adventure won’t be easy.

16. City Hunter:

City Hunter

Next up is a veteran show and pretty much underrated in the action comedy genre. But if you ignore these facts, the series will definitely influence you much more than you expected.

They all started to work together to solve some of the toughest cases and with that, they are ready to face any problems head-on.

Spy x Family

Here comes one of the most popular anime of the era, Spy x Family. And how can we forget this masterpiece! Well, the story starts with introducing corrupt politicians and also warlike groups that are threatening the country’s peace between Ostania and Westalis.

And here comes our skilled spy named “Twilight,” who is ready to take any risk to prevent the country’s children from suffering the horrors of war that he faced in his childhood.

He keeps his real identity hidden and stays in the Ostanian city of Berlint, as a common name Loid Forger, acting like a renowned psychiatrist to gather information on one of the corrupt politicians named Donovan Desmond. He starts a fake family with You as his wife and Anya as his daughter.

And they are on a mission to disclose evil plans of corrupted people in the city.

Well, the show is full of action plus one of the best comedy scenes. As in the family, everyone is unknown about others’ true identity, and that is what makes the show more fun.

The best part is that our little Anya knows all of the secrets of her new parents because she can read minds, which makes it even more hilarious.

14. Noragami:


Next in our action comedy list is our funky god Yato, renowned to be the “Delivery God,” and his only goal is to gather millions of worshippers for his temple. But he is devoted to a dedicated shrine he is unable to fulfill his dreams.

To get a shrine of his own, he started to take odd jobs for a mere five yen each.

So, when his only weapon partner leaves him, things look to have fallen down. Despite this, the journey of our Yato god takes a drastic change that occurs when a middle school girl, Hiyori Iki, our sweet heroine, saves Yato’s life from a car accident but ends up with her giving up her soul from her body. And she is now just like a ghost.

So, to restore her in her real body, Yato needs a new partner, and Hiyori agrees to help him find a new partner for him. And the story gradually changes as you get to see little wholesome moments between Hiyori and Yato.

The show may sound light-hearted and romantic, but trust me, it’s not. There are many dark sides to the characters and is quite action packed at times.

They have no magical powers with them now, and Satan, the ultimate Demon lord, is working as a waiter in a fast-food restaurant, MgRonalds, for survival in the modern world. And it’s freaking funny, trust me.

Well, as we move forward, their lives as normal humans and Sadao soon realize that conquering Ente Isla is now not enough. And now his goal is set on climbing the corporate ladder and becoming the ultimate ruler of Earth.

It is regarded to be one of the best comedy shows with some of the best action scenes between our Demon lord and Hero but it is limited. The change of heart and comic timings between different characters make this series a must-watch action comedy show!

12. Angel Dentetsu:

Angel Dentetsu


The story of Angel Densetsu starts with Seikichi Kuroda, who is also a self-said tough guy of Hekikuu High School. And this sets rumors around students of the first-year transfer student, Seiichirou Kitano, causing chaos in his class.

To confirm the rumor, Seikichi tries to scare Seiichirou, but in return, he himself got terrified of his wild looks.

But as truly said, never judge books by their cover. Our main character, Seiichirou, is not as bad as he looks. He always tries to help people, but every time he gets mistaken for a bully and a bad guy.

At the start of the series, it may seem fun, like his own classmates who are trying to intimidate Seiichirou, get scared and act horrified. But as the story progresses, it feels like Seiichirou just wanted to be friends but he left alone because of his looks.

The show is full of humor and a bit of action here and there but absolutely a must-watch for anyone who is into good action comedy anime.
