Some be funny in away but most probably 80-90% don't be funny but stupid and retarded. One reason why watch less now and more comic books stuff like dc and marvel.

I agree on the comic bit. It gets old seeing a giant tear drop appear over someone - or a somewhat serious anime being interrupted by the protagonist going all chibi with swirly eyes.

Don't know is way better then anime's that make the hero try to get the bad guy to become good while people are getting killed.

Plus this user pretty much cries about every anime.

I think that a big problem with a lot of comedic animes is a lack of...............

I kinda understand this. An anime that always gets me to laugh is Desert Punk tho.

I found that japanese humour is very different to what most are used to. it's all a matter of adjusting I think - same can be said of American and British humour.

All have their trademarks, and specific beats which make them different from the others, and is mostly tied in the culture and history of the country from which they originate.

long story short, it's all a matter of preference, and each brand of humour is an acquired taste, if it can be acquired at all.

Classic Japanese humour is mostly straightman/idiot combinations. If you don't understand why, then you don't understand the culture.

And yes it's as you say, humour varies from region to region. For the same reason I find American humour crass and often not funny.
