* FanonDiscontinuity: Downplayed, but some fans have stated that they prefer to ignore the [[spoiler:AllJustADream ending]] for the Episode 12 skit ''High School Boys and ...'' due to them feeling that it served as such a satisfactory ending to the series as-is.

Particularly given [[NoEnding the lack of any actual ending]].


* FriendlyFandoms: The relationship between this show's fandom and [[{{Manga/Nichijou}} Nichijou]]'s fandom, both due to them being similar in name and due to them [[SliceOfLife sharing a genre]]. Both will argue about which show they think is better, but the arguments never get heated, and both fandoms seem to respect each other and their respective shows. If someone has only seen one show and not the other, fans will often urge them to watch the other as well.

Later fans of girl-focused series like ''Manga/AsobiAsobase'' (which shares crass humor and slapstick) and ''Manga/WastefulDaysOfHighSchoolGirls'' would also become fans of ''Danshi Koukousei''.

** "Oh, so it was a joke." ''Saying this, she casually threw aside a large rock.'' [[note]]From one of the "High School Girls are Funky" segments. Used on Website/{{Tumblr}} whenever someone gives them a scare as the meme would suggest.[[/note]]

** During " High School Boys and Dropkicks", Hidenori encounters a girl, Emi who kicks him because mistook him for a friend she knew, and the aforementioned friend (Kiyohiro) who befriends Hidenori ''instantly'' after Hidenori tells him to give her payback for all the times she's kicked him. They then proceed to spend nearly ''the entire summer'' together. There's even a LampshadeHanging from Emi herself and the ''opening credits of the anime episode the skit was featured in'', questioning if this was "boy meets boy".[[note]]The show said yes, but it wasn't ''[[BoysLove that]]'' kind of show.[[/note]]

* SignatureScene: More like "Signature Skit", but when most people think back to this series, they think of "Highschool Boys and Skirts".
* UnpopularPopularCharacter: The trio from ''High School Girls Are Funky'' desperately try to become appealing characters to branch off into their own show, only to inevitably fail in the process. Outside of the series, they are extremely popular characters.
* VanillaProtagonist: Tadakuni is a GenericGuy with no backstory and has fewer relationships with other characters than his two friends Hidenori and Yoshitake. Tadakuni's suffers from being OutOfFocus, with no presence in some episodes and many chapters. His status is often lampshaded. He's OutOfFocus after the ''first volume'' and episode 5, making him somewhat like an EnsembleDarkHorse.

** Given Tadakuni has been seriously OutOfFocus after the first volume of manga and the fifth episode of anime, his position in the polls--far beyond Hidenori and Yoshitake--also makes him one.
