Crayon Shin-chan

Dubbed in over 20 languages, Crayon Shin-chan was quick to become the funniest anime for kids and adults alike.

Shin-chan is a 5-year-old boy who can’t seem to stop joking around with people.

What’s even funnier is that even though Shin-chan is just a little kid, he has an adorable habit of blushing and acting strangely around beautiful women.

Surprisingly, those punches don’t even have any power added to them.

Wait till you see Saitama using his hilarious special move called ‘serious punch’.

Although the name sounds funny, the impact created by the move is enough to crush the Earth a 100 times over.

And, would you believe me if I told you that Saitama is actually a C-class ranked hero?



Seika High School was an all-boys school for the longest time ever.

So naturally, you would expect the student council president to be a boy right?


In a strange turn of events, a girl named Misaki Ayuzawa won the elections right after the all-boys school became co-ed.

Misaki faced hell itself trying to manage such a large number of boys.

Her disciplinary actions were so authoritarian that the boys were quick to give her the nickname ‘Demon President’

One day, however, the most popular boy in the school gained the upper hand on Misaki after discovering that she was secretly working as a maid.
