Welcome to Anime of the week number 18. Today, I’m going to review the popular comedy anime, Nichijou.
Season 1 ~ Apr, 2 2017 to Jun 25, 2017 (Spring 2017)
Nichijou primarily focuses on the daily antics of a trio of childhood friends—high school girls Mio Naganohara, Yuuko Aioi and Mai Minakami—whose stories soon intertwine with the young genius Hakase Shinonome, her robot caretaker Nano, and their talking cat Sakamoto. With every passing day, the lives of these six, as well as of the many people around them, experience both the calms of normal life and the insanity of the absurd. Walking to school, being bitten by a talking crow, spending time with friends, and watching the principal suplex a deer: they are all in a day’s work in the extraordinary everyday lives of those in Nichijou.
Nichijou is regarded as one of the best comedy show for a reason. It is just that good. For an anime that came out 8 years ago, it has aged exceptionally well. The comedic timing is just spot-on and the animation style really compliments the comedy. Soundtrack is fitting and memorable. Overall, one of the best comedy animes out there, and will probably stay that way for the years to come.
Seasons & Episodes:
1 Season – 26 Episodes
