Synopsis

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.

Story:
Every episode is a series of semi-random "moments" in each of the characters' lives. As far as an actual storyline goes, there is no distinct beginning or end to Nichijou. No goal, no real conflict - as to be expected of a slice of life, read more

Nichijou stayed in my Plan to Watch list for quite a long time. Somehow, every time I looked to the cover of it, I was convinced that it was just another ordinary anime praised by MAL community. Take all this prejudice and combine it with the name ''My Ordinary Life'', and you will have a big snowball of prejudgments. However, I came to you announce, happily, that I was absolutely wrong about this being just a regular anime.

Anyway, let's get to what really matters: Nichijou presents a story that appears to be quite simple and ordinary. Three friends enjoying their respective school lives, with a read more

Recommendations

Similar humour and episode layout/development. However, Azumanga has a stronger storyline than Nichijou, which is literally just clips from the character's obscure lives.
Both are slice-of-life anime dealing with the everyday high school lives of boys/girls. Both can be rather hit or miss in the comedy department, though Nichijou tends to takes its jokes to whole new extremes.
