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. The art style is cute but mixes with extreme expressions and action sequences for surprising comedy bits.


Nichijou will be published in English by Vertical Inc. under the Vertical Comics imprint. The first volume is set to be released on March 1, 2016.

Manga: Kyou no Go no Ni
Both titles are slice-of-life comedies that involve the normal yet random lives of students.

Manga: Sora ga Haiiro dakara
Both of these titles boast similar narrative and art styles. Expect to get a chuckle or two.

Manga: Hirameki Hatsume-chan
Apart from the fact that both Hakase and Hatsume are inventors, both are gag manga with comedic elements of a similar and random nature.

Manga: Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou
Both of these titles are standalone slice-of-life narratives that depict, in an extraordinary and exaggerated manner, the daily lives of highschoolers. Moreover, both titles share very similar narrative styles; particularly in regard to how comedy is achieved. 
reportRecommended by radiantfire
Manga: Azumanga Daioh
Both are school comedies in a 4-koma format.

Very similar humor and the inspiration from Azumanga Daioh is very clear in Nichijou.

Nichijou is far more episodic and has some sci-fi elements, but the overall feel is the same. 
reportRecommended by Jerkhov
Manga: Tentai Senshi Sunred
Slice-of-life comedies that follow the daily lives of a variety of characters (a hero and a villian in Sunred, and students in Nichijou).
