While the title suggests a story of simple, everyday school life, the contents are more the opposite. The setting is a strange school where you may see the principal wrestle a deer or a robot’s arm hide a rollcake. However there are still normal stories, like making a card castle or taking a test you didn’t study for.
If I had to sum up all of Nichijou in one word, it would be “beautiful.” As a slice of life, this anime can’t be for everyone, as most people like to have a story that is actually driven by the plot. But even if you aren’t into slice of life anime, there is something in Nichijou for everyone to enjoy. So the story is this… nothing. Just absolutely nothing except that it’s about the life of Yukko, Mai and Mio at school and everyone around them. At first you see also Nano-chan and the mini professor, but later on they are also part of the story of the three main characters. Other than that… everything is just shorts of complete and udder randomness and chaos, full of hilarity that you’ll roll on the floor laughing.Sometimes even laughing your ass off.Ever since I seen the first episode… I have loved this series. I love the randomness, I can try to compare to azumanga diaoh but really they both seem the same but Nichijou seems more random to me. It’s very funny, sometimes the jokes seem like it won’t make you laugh but when you see the looks at the characters for their reactions,you can’t help but laugh. I say it’s a good show to have if you want a good laugh and randomness.
