  • Awesome watch for a dinner party
    This is one of the best "Just for fun" anime's I've seen in awhile. No real story line to be had and some jokes are kinda inside jokes as if you're not from Japan you really won't get it although they don't ruin the flow of the show. But the show is so FUCKING ADORABLE it doesn't matter as the situations, character interactions and yells of anguish are as entertaining as a monkey boxing match. ...

  • Watch this show now.
    I just finished watching this, and it is AMAZING. I want to re-watch the whole thing again. It is, at some points(okay, a lot of points), obscenely cute, and once or twice simply obscene. Whether or not that is a good thing doesn't matter, because IT IS TOO AMAZING.

  • Above and Beyond the Ordinary
    My Ordinary Life (or "nichijou") is a fantastic show; it is brilliant in its execution of comedy, animation, and ordinary life. It is primarily a comedy, yet it shines in its solid, varied execution of top-notch animation and artistry. I don't think I've ever seen such a diverse array of artistic techniques used in an anime before, and I have never seen a slice of life or comedy with as high an ...

  • Astounding enough to become anything but ordinary
    This anime is a terrific blend of happiness and quirk. There are a lot of unusual situations that can most often be described as whimsical or heartwarming, but overall amusing. The array of characters provides roles fit for the series' environment and even get their spotlight more than once in a while. For a comedy, it surprisingly uses little to no reference material, let alone typical attributes ...

  • Definitely going to Rewatch This Series Again!! :D
    This is an excellent example of pure innocent comedy at its finest. Usually many of the mainstream comedy shows revolve around "ecchi" situations. Watching this felt extremely refreshing, and YES how can we forget about the occasional or if not always apparent "moe" scenes. But you can't really help it when its Kyoto Animation, I have yet to ever see them fail at creating freakishly adorable ...

    My first fully watched anime
    As the first anime I've watched in full this was a great show that had a good balance of relatable and ridiculous comedy. The fact that it's a slice of life show it might seem like there is no full story to it, but yet some events that occur in the past affect the future and it makes for a charming and funny show.

  • Everyday Life, minus the boring bits.
    When you start watching My Ordinary Life, you may mistake it for just another slice-of-life comedy anime that over exaggerates things for comedic effect, but I've come to realize there's more to this show than that. Underneath its colorful cast of characters, endless streams of gags, and despite how intense it gets (often times without warning), My Ordinary Life is the most beautiful and subtle ...

  • This is how you make a slice-of-life work.
    You read correctly- this is how you make a slice of life. Go in the character's mind, make the jokes work well, put in real life things that even people outside of Japan will relate with and laugh, over dramatic reactions to ordinary things- you know, like typical humans, some of the best animation I've ever seen in general, let alone from Kyoto Animations, some memorable characters, and ...

  • I want this show to never end!!
    It was a really amazing and wonderful anime. Sure it didn't have much to it but it was really entertaining and really funny! Everything is so kawaii, and everyone has an amazing personality, I've never seen an anime like this before. This show was truly amazing, every single thing in it was, from music to charters and even settings!
