12 Days of Anime #3: Nichijou


Why me, why make another post about me? It's because you are special~

Yosh, this will be a quick post. I am not going to write much whatsoever. Why? Becuase I have no need to. IF YOU WANT TO SEE WHAT I THINK OF NICHIJOU, YOU SHOULD READ THIS SUPER, SUPER LONG POST THAT I WORKED REALLY, REALLY HARD ON.

Nichijou was incredible. I still somewhat regret not watching it along with everyone else, but it does not really matter. I really enjoyed this anime. It grew on me. I liked it when it started, I didn’t like it so much during the late beginning-middle, but then I started liking it again, more than ever. After finishing it, I only liked it more with time. It is one of those awesome anime that grow on you. Anyway, let’s quickly talk moments.

Okay, this is hard to decide, because Nichijou has so many memorable moments. So much fun was had watching this. But, in the end, I managed to chose one.

The Chan-Mio Chase Scene


This scene will forever be ingrained into my head. It is perfect. This scene takes everything that is good about Nichijou, and compresses it into one scene. The random humour, the strange happenings, the reversals, pretty much everything can be found in this scene. It is a perfect scene, and one of the best scenes in anime. It doesn’t matter if you like Nichijou or not, I think everyone can appreciate this scene.

Other memorable moments

The Pole-Vault Scene

The Human Torpedo

Hilarious scene this was. The music was also top-notch.

The Final Go-Soccer showdown

This match was a very memorable match.

There is probably a decent amount of fiction out there that deals with made up sports. I mean, Quidditch is made up. (What, you thought it was real?) But, Go-Soccer is special. See, at first, it was something made up in the show to! So it was twice the fiction! But then, it was no longer made up, but rather it was this classy sport that required years of experience to master( I think). I don’t know much about Go and very little about Soccer, but I know enough to know that Go-Soccer was awesome. And, what was especially awesome was that one scene, the only scene with a full game between the Sensei and the student. The exagerated movements, the referees actions, all of it combined made for quite a few giggles. Oh, and the music was brilliant to.

The Blimp Scenes

I don’t need to justify these. I really don’t.

Like Love


It’s always great when you throw in something touching, and it’s even more great when it’s in the middle of a show that is meant to be a comedy.

Nichijou was brilliant. I have many fond memories of this show, and hopefully, someday I will revisit it and if my hypothesis is correct, I will only like it more when I do.

This post is really short because I have already talked quite exhaustively about Nichijou, and hey, it’s no where near as short as this or this.

    Nichijou was very hit-or-miss for, well, everybody. Which was a good thing, because it proved that not all comedy shows must always try to be funny, all the time (see: Working, Ika Musume), but that comedy shows /can/ be hit-or-miss and they /can/ still be funny.

    Of course, Japan obviously doesn’t seem to agree, so Kyoto Animation’s back to the same old, same old. I’m typing this like I know what I’m talking about but my head is a bowl and it looks very old and I’m making this rhyme but I’m all out of time and your other post’s long and I’d make it into a song but because tonight’s WINTER VACATION so I guess I don’t have any CATIONS

      Haha, don’t push yourself! Go uhh, rest or something, you seem tired. As for Nichijou, yeah, it’s hit or miss, and it sort of wins because it has so many different types of jokes stuffed in there.
      I do hope they make a sequel, but it seems unlikely, oh well!

      Has your winter vacation started already? If yes, lucky, my brother who is a high school doesn’t get his break until next Friday…
