    Slice of life, maxed out to 10.
    Once again on a recommendation from one of my friends, I was prompted to watch Nichijou, an anime that neither had me interested nor had me completely repelled. It's that first impression that made me think that this was just Lucky Star, mixed up and dressed to resemble something I've never seen before. Not that it was a bad thing, but I've seen a fair share of clones of other shows, and I can say ...

    Your 300BPM slice of life
    Take Azumanga Daioh as base, then add in Pani Poni Dash and compress it into 26 eps and you have Nichijou. This show controls its "beat" very well, switching between high and low gear without any signs of awkwardness. The base of it all is the regular slice of life show, so the pace would be a bit slower than say Pani Poni Dash. Also the episodes are only mildly related to each other, so you can ...

    Best feel good show.
    I can watch every episode of this series multiple times and always be satisfied and happy while watching. It is such a silly and happy show. This is one of the greatest shows of all time. Everyone should watch nichijou.

    My Extraordinary Anime
    This anime is nothing short of amazing to me. I have no knowledge of the base manga, had no expectations for it besides the animation to be KyoAni-thoughtful / -beautiful... but like other past KyoAni hits, it changes your perception of why you watch anime in the first place.

    Nichijou's first trump card I feel, is its pacing -- all the skits (what I call those sub-mini story arcs) *feel* like ...

    One of the best shows I've seen this year
    I was turned on to the manga by Nokoka and even the manga was funny enough, but I find that the most impact on me is from the anime. The colors are not the most vivid but the show's humor and ongoing theme is more than enough to make up for the use of pastels. The characters are well developed and their personalities play off of each other perfectly. Mai seems to be very serious as she doesn't ...

    My Stomach aches from laughter.
    I watched this anime all within just a few days. Best and worst idea i've ever had. The amount of laughter that was sustained throughout the anime was at a constant high. There are many animes i like better than watching this, but if i were to rate it amongst only animes with comedy and slap stick humor, i would rate it number one. Among friends i shared it to, it was a mixed feeling. Some ...

    Remember when comedy didn't have to be vulgar?
    Writing is a difficult task, writing comedy even more so. When it comes to what is considered funny, just like what is considered scary, is extremely subjective. Problem is, when writing comedy people can't see outside their own perspectives, and just make what they consider funny. This series is able to get past that problem by delving into many different types of comedy without pandering. That ...

    The Anime Equivalent of Mario Kart
    This show is the best, and gets better when you watch it with friends. My Ordinary Life has so many ways it guns for laughs, its impossible to catch them all on your own - usually because you're too busy laughing to catch the next joke! On the plus side, that makes it great for re-watches, as the sheer amount of content guarantees that it'll still feel fresh the second or third time. Don't let the ...
