Nichijou
 
Kyoto Animation will supposedly animate Arawi Keiichi Nichijou manga about an insane group of high school students.

Just what we need, more idiotic slice-of-life.

& now all we need is another moe dance!! :p

I wish KyoAni would pick up other things that isn't moe for once, something with sophisticated plot, action and romance...

Ok, yup I know I'm definitely tuning in the wrong channel.

cyth 2010-05-22 05:54

After dropping 801-chan things just seem to be going downhill for them content-wise.

Genres: Action, Comedy, Dementia, Slice of Live
Demographic: Shounen

But yeah. I know what you mean.

Falkor 2010-05-22 09:48

funny how everyone assumes that it's going to be "another 'moe' series" just because kyoani is involved...

anyway, the manga reminds me a bit of azumanga/yotsubato. the humor is definitely along these lines---sometimes crazy and absurd, sometimes slice-of-life-ish. might be interesting to see how they handle this kind of humor.

Horse 2010-05-22 09:58

My impression from the manga covers: KyoAni getting into SHAFTs yard?

Starry Dust 2010-05-22 11:43

Well, I love slice-of-life so I'm not complaining.
But by the looks of it, it doesn't look that interesting to me. I never read Yotsubato but I've seen some of Azumanga Daioh & it was alright.

But who knows how this new series will turn out.

Can't blame us for stereotyping this though.

I smiled a bit reading this.

Midonin 2010-05-22 23:45

It is said that the best way to portray weirdness is to do it with a completely straight face. That looks to be the case here. While its financial success is almost assured, I'm just in it for a laugh.

Kakkou 2010-05-22 23:53

Honestly KyoAni should leave these types of shows to other studios and just get working on something that reflects their potential of making gorgeous and awesome animation. Oh, and by that I meant adaptations. They should never be allowed to make their own original productions after how Munto turned out.

Having said that, I am interested in the premise, just not so glad KyoAni picked it up.

Tatiana Razajev 2010-05-23 10:20

Let's see if I got this straight. A studio that I'm fond of is going to animate a manga that I've read nine chapters of and am liking so far? Clearly, there is only one conclusion I can come to. This is good news for me.

Ithekro 2010-05-23 11:36

....

After reading some of it...it seems like an extreme version of Azumanga Daioh (situation wise...because Azumanga's situation were generally normal). The art work is close to Azumanga in style. Of the four main characters (I guess) one looks a little like Chiyo, one looks and acts a little like Tomo if she was gold haired, and one looks and acts a little like "Osaka". The fouth is the odd one. Doesn't fit any Azumanga roll (unless you think of her as a mix between Yomi, Sakaki, and the biting cat...long hair, quiet, glasses, weird sense of humor that is often directed at one character).

An we all thought Lucky Star was KyoAni's Azumanga....this...this will be more so...but still different. (This is JC Staff terrritory by the way...since Azumanga was animated by JC Staff).

And by extreme situation...I mean extreme and bizarre. It isn't Shaft's Pani Poni Dash weird/random though....at least...not yet.

I agree that the art style is very very much like AD, but I don't see any similarity in the characters.

They do share a weirdness factor. AD had Oosaka's weird dreams and Chiyo-chichi; Nichijou has:
Spoiler for weird stuff in Nichijou:
It's funny and I like it.

Just what we need, more idiotic slice-of-life.

KyoAni loves it's cash cows but really are they ever going to animate anything else or do they want to continue to animate more moe slice of life until they die off?

Well I don't know what this is about but I can guess what will happen. May watch it.

So now based on the title and using special goggles I shall come up with a new plot.

Ni chi jou- After eating a bun with the special 'Jou' plant, a girl named Akiko finds herself swapping bodies with a famous leader like say Zimbawe's Robert Mugabe. So now, follow the shenanigans of Akiko as every day we gain a satirical look at world politics as a 16 year old girl is suddenly thrust into a leadership position as she attempts to manage the country as best she could for one day.

As Akiko constantly eats this bun non-stop everday, she trades body with another politician everyday. At the end of each episode is a 5 minute short showing how said politician deals with life as a 16 year old Japanese schoolgirl. Yes Mugabe as a schoolgirl will have her skirt flipped.

Ni-Chijou: Follows the story of a soldier in the IJA and an sailor in the IJN as they participate in the Russo-Japanese War.

Nichijou: A day by day diary account of civilians living in Soviet-occupied Hokkaido.

But...if we were to lean towards Japan's tastes, let us now comproise
Nichijou: Based on The Reagan Diaries, a day to day account of a genderbent version of the President; Ronalda Reagan. Ronalda is a genki girl who hate the Communist Student Council who has taken over half the school. And so she manages to win a Capitalist Student Council Election over shrinking violet Jamie Carter. Ronalda then begins an aggressive campaign of bully...I mean rolling back communist takeover of classes such as G-1 and supporting like-minded partisans in classes like N-3 And A-5 as well as attempting to build a Missile Defense System. Helping Ronalda out is Maggie Thatcher, The Iron Titties Woman. The Scool War then cools down with the rise of tsundere Yekaterina Gorbychev who begins reforming the Communist Student Council's part of the school after a string of Presidents like Yuriko Andropov, Konstantina Chernenskaya and Anya Gromyskaya. One of these new policies is to say My Way to class presidents in C-3 and E-5.5. E-5 as a result reunites with E-5 and soon Class Presidents in C-3 and R-8 are quickly overthrown.

Thankfully though, Yekaterina who after much negotiation (it's not like I'm reducing my missiles because I like you or anything. Got it, Ronalda?) signs the ART treaty. The end of the series shows Ronalda leaving her job and over in East School the collapse of the Student Council after B-1, B-2 and B-3 declare independence and a failed coup against Yekaterina which was defeated thanks to Viktoriya Yeltsin (hard-drinking moe)

Well Bakemonogatari did beat them in the sale department.

Circlebutton 2010-05-25 17:46

Huh, who would've thought Nichijou would be adapted. I enjoyed it thoroughly but its humor is a bit off the left field. It'd be interesting to see the audience reaction.

The AzuMa/Nichijou comparison and KyoAni hate posts will run rampant.

wingman32x 2010-05-27 00:07

Well, it's a KyoAni slice of life, so I'll at least try it. It looks pretty weird though...
