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.
Slife-of-life series that set themselves apart from the rest with their ridiculous humour and random high-tension moments. They call themselves 'everyday' series, and sure enough, even their absolute weirdest moments can be strangely relatable.
Despite the fact that Nichijou focuses on the daily lives of high school girls, and Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou focuses on the daily lives of high school boys, there are three elements that shine very brightly and show a certain correlation in both series. The first is the underlying concept: these shows tackle some of the common aspects of being a high school girl or boy, respective to the title, as well as some of the stranger aspects of it. Second is the execution of this idea. Both are comedies, and, therefore, exaggerate certain scenarios, but both do so in a similar manner, and typically through the eyes of a growing set of cast members, while still remaining primarily focused on three main characters (well, I suppose you could say five or six, in Nichijou’s case). The responses to these absurd scenarios are typically outrageous, but always unique to the individual character who experiences or responds to it. Thirdly, the art style of both are different from each other, but, at the same time, very distinct and set apart from the art from other titles, and the music is very unique and catchy.
Both of these anime are set apart from other comedy-based anime due to their unique execution and strangely engaging, yet distant cast. If one of the two manages to capture your attention, the other is likely to do the same. read more
The female version of Danshi No Nichijou is "Nichijou" itself.
While the comedy of the male version is a bit funky and teen-oriented, Nichijou offers a comedy that fits all the ages. Yet, the comedy seen in both of anime is actually enjoyable to anyone who wants to break free from boredom.
Even the title is similar. DKNN presents the daily life of high school boys. Nichijou does the same, but with girls. Both series are very funny, have the same sense of humor and hilarious/wierd characters. Yukko is a little bit similar to Tadakuni IMO. And Mio reminds me of Hidenori and Yoshitake.
I think that every Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou fan should try Nichijou. It's worth it.
Very similar comedy styles. Both set in a "normal" slice-of-life school setting, with random cutscenes of hilariousness. The only difference is Nichijou treats truly impossible events (robots, cats talking, etc.) as completely average. Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou focuses more on regular high school boys.
Both series adapt a slice of life approach with exaggerated scenes of humor, comedy, and absurd dialogues. In fact, some of the moments in both series are so random that it almost makes little to no sense.
Both series take place at a high school life setting where there is drama involving the main characters.
Both series also feature main cute scenes and just in general, nonsense revolving around the characters' lives.
Those two animes are so similar, it's about school-comedy life, where all the characters face funny situations that leaves them in a weird position, and many supernatural accidents happen in both of these anime series.
If you liked Nichijou, then you'll love Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou. The two share a style of doing skits and random humor. The characters are quite enjoyable and the skits are unique. Although Nichijou is a bit more clean when it comes to the humor. Both still have got me laughing until I cried.
You will smile with this anime a lot. The jokes are very good and it's very original. I love this anime too, I smiled and enjoyed a lot with this anime. For me, is the best anime of comedy. I really recommend it.
Danshi and nichijou are both slice of life/comedy/randomness anime. They are really funny and interesting, but i think danshi is a bit funnier than nichijou. These shows don't have a story, so don't watch them if you expect story, these are just a bunch of random and hilarious jokes. While in danshi mc are male, in nichijou mc are female.
Both of them are Slice of Life series about highschool girls and boys. They've got similar humour and jokes as well as funny characters. I guarantee you that you won't stop laughing when watching both of them.
Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou = "Daily Lives of High School Boys". Nichijou = "My Ordinary Life"; See the resemblances already? Both anime take place primarily in a high school setting with a colorful, dank cast of characters with dank humor. Skits are taken to a whole new level of extremes and even the most ordinary of situations become something extraordinary.
Both shows take place in high school and the episodes are made in the same way with different skits. They both mainly follow three friends but have a lot of side characters as well. If you liked the comedy of one then you'll surely like the other.
Nichijou was about similar to Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou.. In Nichijou, the story goes with female casts and some male supporting.. But in Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou, it was backward.. The story was casted by male actors and some female actors supporting the story.. Funny and laugh was the similarity of these anime series..
If you watched Nichijou I highly recommend to watch this too. Well if you already watched and loved Nichijou watching another "Everyday life" anime wouldn't hurt. The Comedy is on equal or IMO slightly better than Nichijou's. Also you don't need to remember the character's names to have fun (as stated in the anime) :D
Both have exactly the same format of endless comedic skits. As such there is no overall story but some skits do link together over time.
Each has a wide cast of characters that appear during scenes.
Both are much funnier than the average comedy.
Nichijou focuses on the lives of 3 highschool girls while Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou focuses on the lives of 3 highschool boys.
Nichijou depicts the daily lives of three high school girls. But in Danishi Koukousei no Nichijou it's rather the opposite. 3 highschool boys will be living their daily lives. Both shows doesn't have a main story rather tells seperate story.
Pretty much both of them are Comedy/Slice of life anime with lots of random jokes implemented in them. They also dont have a specific plot in which the story follows. However, Nichijou may have extreme events such as a talking cat, your school director fighting with a deer and even "destroying planets with laser beams " while DKNN shows the life of Highschool boys and their "boring" lives.
Nichijou shows all the characters and their traits while DKNN mostly shows "boys" acting like "boys".
If you are a fan of Slice of life/Comedy anime, you should definitely try them out!
If you liked the high school comedy aspect of Nichijou then you might like this, though one thing to note is that is anime is more of a crude type of comedy in contrast to the pure-hearted comedy and slice of life aspect of Nichijou.
They both are slice-of-life high school gag anime with a tremendous amount of humor. They are more or less the same thing except the MCs are guys in Danshi and girls in Nichijou. Both devotes a fair amout of screen time to side characters and subgroups.
Same concept of mundane daily highschool life made funny by witty humor. Very similar to Nichijou in setting/characters (both have 3 highschool friends, except Nichijou is of course girls and Danshi Koukoussi no Nichijou is the exact opposite.)
Although, DKnN isn’t as over the top at Nichijou by any means.
The situational humor in both of these are incredibly similar. They are both so quirky. I watch Azumanga first and it's one of the few anime I'll rewatch. I'm so glad to find Nichijou. It was like finding out Parks and Rec was an option after rewatching The Office.
Flagship comedy of Japanese animation. These names are pretty-much Mr.Bean of anime world at its time. High-profile, funny, not plotless but whogivesashit, feature stereotypical moe girl of its era, and appeal to majority male anime audiences (a.k.a. freaky otaku.)
Both looks at the daily lives of high school girls that often display very mundane conversations/activities into hilarious outcomes. I do have to mention, however, that Norio Wakamoto had a larger role in Azumanga Daioh than Nichijou. Just sayin'.
Nichijou is based on a similar idea as Azumanga - it shows everyday life of a selected group of schoolgirls. But where Azumanga drops the laughing parts and gets on a more mellow and heartcatching atmosphere Nichijou keeps its pace. Personally I consider Nichijou to be a much more wonderful, memorable, emotional experience. It made me laugh so many times and also cry so many times. And it is the first anime I truly and sincerely wanted to continue forever.
At the first look Nichijou looks like an imitation of Azumanga, the humor and characters are very similar but Nichijou have his own value too, both are really funny and may convert your worst day into a happy one.
Both of them revolve around the everyday life of several school girls and the weird happenings that they get into. They have similar humor, so I think you'd definitely like one if you liked the other. Nichijou is a little more weird and it has more characters, while Azumanga Daioh spends more time focusing on one group of characters.
Simillar art, except that Nichijou uses a more colorful art than Azumanga Daioh.
A lot of randomness here. Slice of Life randomness as well.
If you enjoyed Azumanga Daioh, you won't be disappointed with Nichijou.
Nichijou and Azumanga Daioh are both high school comedies that follow a segmented format (where each episode is divided into a number of "mini-episodes"). Both rely more on physical comedy and non-sequitur or absurdness than wit as the base of their humor. Neither of the two pay very dedicated attention to realism, with Nichijou in particular being quite surreal for certain segments.
A cast of female characters in a school setting. Both contain very little, if any, storyline, but rather focus on pure comedy. Nichijou is much more random in comparison, but both pull off jokes extremely well.
Both have very silly, nearly nonsensical humor that doesn't rely on pop-references to deliver. While Nichijou is more over-the-top and dramatic in its reality-defying antics and Azumanga Daioh has a more dream-like quality to it, the pacing across each is very similar.
I feel that Nichijou is the spiritual successor to Azumanga Daioh in that Nichijou is like Azumanga Daioh on crack. Some of the character designs are reminiscent of Azumanga Daioh, and it has a similar short-skit kind of feel to it, but Nichijou's art, cast of characters, and jokes are more fast-paced and crazy, showing how the genre has progressed over the 9 years difference between the two.
The anime also centers around the daily life of school girls and has many humor elements, some characters are also similar (thick headed type, burning-spirit type, gullible type). Nichijou has more twists and fantasy related content
Both are about everyday life of a very likeable group of high school girls dealing with their everyday life.
Azumanga Daioh is the more grounded one, focusing more on character growth as the friendship between the girls develops.
Nichijou mostly focuses on making the ordinary extraordinary, both literally and figuratively.
While extremely similiar at first glance, they have their very distinct identities, but they're absolute must see.
Both Azumanga Daioh and Nichijou are about a group of high school girls experiencing the exaggerated events of everyday life. Both are stylized as a "sitcom" with no overarching plot however this doesn't take away from the quality of writing since each series' episodes are gems on their own.
The comedy may be a bit more abstract in Nichijou but it uses this to its advantage making it even better at some points. Both shows have the same presentation—short stories clips—(Azumanga's is definitely more relevant to itself as time progresses).
Azumanga Daioh has a more story driven plot with humour thrown into it (great humour at that), whereas Nichijou is entirely just there for the laughs, where there is no real main story line but, rather scenes from character's day to day life that are very... peculiar. If you've just come off Azumanga Daioh and are looking for more comedy of the same style, Nichijou is a good recommendation.
The "normal" high school life of a group of high school girls. A lot more wtf things happen in Nichijou and its rythm is faster, but the 2 are still very cute and will make you smile, laugh ( and maybe cry at the end if you love the series too much ). If you loved one, you'll surely love the other
Both anime series are school life comedy with the humor based on randomness and exaggeration. In that sense they are maybe too similar. So, if you really want to watch something light and enjoyed either of the series, give the other one a try!
Both anime focus on a group of slightly insane high school girls and their (mis)adventures. The group dynamics are similar and both shows go into absurd comedy every now and then. Both anime show that despite how wacky and mean the girls seem to be, they like and care for each other.
It's basically the second coming of Azumanga Daioh via Kyoto Animation. While it's paced very differently from AzuDai and follows a sketch show format without a three act structure, it has all kinds of wacky and relatable humor but still has a lot of heart and great characters.
Both amines focus on everyday lives of a group of high school girls with eccentric and sometimes over the top humor. In many cases, both also have skits involving separate characters outside of our main cast, although its more prevalent in Nichijou . It's no secret that Azumanga Daioh started the trend of slice of life comedies for Kyoto Animation in which Nichijou is largely inspired by.
Both these shows are comedies set in a high school. More then that. They're the same style of comedy, and they have a similar feel. They both have a colorful cast of characters, and they both have a teacher obsessing over a student. (One of which just wants to study said student, for she knows she's a robot. The other is a pervert.)
Two major qualities are fitted into both shows. First, they are the exemplary Japanese "high-tension" comedy, meaning characters in it got ADHD and turn the comedy into something fast-paced, fast-forward Mr.Bean video if you fail to understand. Second, both feature mild sex sale, the real identity of what they call moe.
The comedy part, both are considered fast-paced-high-tension comedy because you know why. They play jokes fast, get it fast, and move on to the next joke fast. Difficult to follow but considered funny if you have some mental rewind ability, or get yourself a remote and a easy-to-read fansub. If you feel a serious need to understand unserious joke, study Japanese.
Oh and the moe part, both are considered mild sex sale because Lucky Stars give character traits that are likable in its era, specifically this era. Boke(airhead), megane(glasses), tsundere(googleit), and otaku-girl stereotype are becoming more prominent as moe anime lead. Nichijou has got some different stereotype but should be considered equally likable. I interchangeably use the word moe and sex-sale in case you have not yet notice. read more
Both made by the same people. Both are moe high school girl slice-of-life comedies, where the main characters deal with everyday things: school, boys, food, family, friends... whatever. They are extremely similar in almost every way, except a few:
1. The main character archetypes are radically different.
2. The humor in Nichijou is more random, silly, and dumb. The humor in Lucky Star is more intelligent, and is almost entirely embedded in conversations.
3. The main characters in Lucky Star receive 99.9% of the focus, whereas the side characters in Nichijou get a good chunk of attention by themselves.
I don't know, I know I was supposed to recommend Azumanga Daioh first to Nichijou watchers because how similar their plot styles and characters. But actually I wrote this recommendation at the time I feel abstractly the similar feeling of Nichijou and Lucky Star. Maybe because the same level of tempo and craziness ( I know Lucky Star looks far more realistic from the outside ).
First, both share the same 3 genres, comedy, slice of life and school life. They both revolve around a group of girls that go through their regular everyday lives with moments that may just put a smile on your face or give you a chuckle. Both have simple light-hearted humor and random scenes.
Both cartoons are part of the 'slice of life' genre, with the same kind of humour and kind of parody for the most part. However, Lucky Star seems to be a more relaxed show, while Nichijou is little more crazy. Main characters have that distinctive and characteristic cuteness from this kind of shows. Whatever the case, these are two classic 'slice of life' animes and if you liked Lucky Star, then you can't miss Nichijou. Most importantly, THEY BOTH SUCK ASS lol seriously wtf
-both anime are about random stuff in their everyday life
-both anime have got many comedy parts
-the characters of these two anime look childish
-they have got the genre comedy,school and slice of life
-the humor are similar
if you like lucky star you'll Sour like Nichijou ^^
~Both have colorful art.
~Both have a very comedy theme.
~Both have great main characters that still in a school.
~Both have many episodes.. (24+ova for lucky star) And (26 for Nichijou)
~Both are about school life with no superpowers or any Romance (i like this part)
Actuary i like Nichijou more that lucky star. so please gave it a chance ^^
Soft, personable to some, the series leaves the audience with a warmhearted feeling, but the plots are simple to follow. The one difference between the two is Nichijou leans more towards the crackfic genre than Acchi Kocchi does, as the latter takes a more realistic take.
Acchi Kocchi is like a laid back version of Nichijou.They both have a similar type of comedy,but Nichijou is a little more extreme.Even with the outrageous comedy Nichijou has both shows also share adorable heartwarming moments as well.
Acchi Kocchi (Place to Place) and Nichijou have a similar trait of humor and pace. They don't have as quick humor as Osomatsu-san or One Punch Man, but still keep it entertaining. Personally both art styles are incredibly appealing to look at.
These 2 anime are somewhat similar to each other, both about easygoing and crazy school kids, doing stupid things, exaggerating simple events and a notch of cuteness in both of them.
If you liked either of these, watch the other one.
Un buen monólogo. Ver a alguien caerse. El mejor chiste de la historia. Y ninguno me ha hecho reír tanto como este anime. Hace de las situaciones cotidianas lo más hilarante y absurdo que he visto en mucho tiempo. Si ver al director luchando a muerte contra una cabra no te hace reír, nada lo hará.
A good monologue. See someone fall. The best joke in history. And none made me laugh as much as this anime. Makes everyday situations the most hilarious and absurd thing I've seen in a long time. If wtching the principal fighting to the death against a goat does not make you laugh, nothing will. read more
Both series centre around 3 girls doing absolutely hilarious things. The humour is very fast paced in both series and are also very slapstick. Both are also incredibly funny and are DEFINITELY worth your time! Difference is that Plastic Nee-san is a lot shorter than Nichijou in terms of episode length.
Nichijou is like a cuter, slightly calmer version of Plastic Neesan; Plastic Neesan is like Nichijou on crack.
Both anime use a school setting for a lot of their scenes, and both anime are hilarious. Also, both have girls as their main characters.
If you liked the pure-hearted comedy aspect of Nichijou, then you might like Yuru Yuri, they're similar in many aspects, though one thing to note is this anime is less slice of life and more comedy than Nichijou, I would argue that it is still equally as entertaining with its own sort of charm.
Expect random comedy, humorous dialogues, and in general, stories made out of arbitrary daily life events. Nichijou and Tonari no Seki-kun are anime series that follows an episodic format with no direct or linear storyline. The stories are simple with gags and fun. They both take place in a school life setting. The main characters from both series creates a comical environment with slice of life attributes.
Random short stories of few minutes that (for Nichijou: mostly) take place in school.
Tonari no Seki-kun features one story per episode, Nichijou features multiple stories in one episode, sometimes even split up into multiple parts featured on different episodes. However, Nichijou episodes are ~three times longer.
The overall setting, feeling and humor is very similar, so If you like either of these, you'll love the other.
Dada-ist humour in a high school environment.
Over-the-top and episodic, both shows takes the boke in traditional manzai to new and absurd heights. Seki-kun is only a series of shorts, and as such you can almost see it fitting perfectly into the Nichijou school environment as just another skit.
Both of these comedies work at the same pace, moving fast, but giving the audience enough time to get invested in the shenanigans and appreciate the execution. Both also work on the same magnitude, creating absurd, random scenes while maintaining a sense of cohesion, as if all of their events are happening within the set parameters of their own quirky little world.
Last, but not least, both have lovable, extremely expressive characters with great voice actors. What more could you ask for?
Asobi Asobase is Nichijou's crude cousin. Very similar in how unexpected the gags and jokes are. They come at you at breakneck speed, but never fail to be so hilarious it leaves you in hysterics. The punches land and they're nonstop, whenever you think you are safe for another moment, another comes.
If you compare Nichijou with Asobi Asobase, they both have many similarities such as:
-Both take place in high school
-3 female main characters
-Over exaggerating face reactions
-Great OP and ED songs
Most importantly, both are great anime for comedy fans or those who want to laugh a lot.
Nichijou and Kobayashi are both shows that give you a similar vibe in comedy. Nichijou is comedy focused where Kobayashi has some fantasy and more serious moments as well. Both shows are lighthearted and give you the same feeling and are animated by Kyoto Animation. If you have seen one or the other I would highly recommend the other to you. You'll be in for a very comedic and character driven story.
Nichijou is an anime about people who may or may not be extraordinary, and their lives which may or may not contain extraordinary things. Maidragon is a bit more extreme, where it's about an ordinary person who crosses with extraordinary beings that ultimately change her life in extraordinary ways. Still, the laid-back and comedic tone of Maidragon makes it feel like a spin-off of Nichijou more than anything. Both series highlight the everyday lives of their characters, and often have extreme and intense moments despite being about ordinary things. These moments are perhaps most notable for their incredible level of animation from the studio Kyoto Animation.
In other words, Nichijou is like a more spastic and random version of Maidragon with more characters and themes, while Maidragon is like a more dramatic and fleshed-out version of Nichijou, but with fewer characters and themes. read more
If your main reason for watching one of these was that certain characters are adorable, you probably won't be disappointed by the other. Comparable comedy as well, although Nichijou is far more random.
Referring the hilarious and stupidity of this anime.. could literally fall you to the ground...
and react how you act not so normal after seeing this stuff..
And even has the same choreography & downgrade low budget animation of KyoAni
Living in a daily lives everyday twice means... More trouble it gets :D!!
Nichijou and Sakamoto are both equally similar in how they execute the humor. In both shows, the main characters are all put into extremely ridiculous situations. Consequently, they are all forced to think on their feet, which causes them to respond with overexaggerated emotions and humorous actions that often do not make any sense. In Nichijou, however, the humor revolves around 6 main characters; In Sakamoto, it's just, well, Sakamoto.
Both are really crazy and parodic silce of life shows with its studios going all-out to portray its comedic scenes. Though after four episodes Joshiraku slows a bit and kinda gets boring, but if you are into this kinda shows you will like them both, I guess.
Joshiraku and Nichijou are comic series with opposite themes, but with similar plots. A group of girls discuss Japanese culture, trivial things in life and even anime issues. Both usually perform satires of the aforementioned, showing the various conclusions of these, taken from a different point of view, with a humor that can be childish and sometimes very intelligent. Even one can not fully understand.
Both are over the top skit based comedies featuring a group of cute and relateable girls.
One of the bigger differences between the two is the type of humor they use. Neither anime is a stranger to exaggerated and over the top comedy, but Joshiraku definitely uses more dialogue driven comedy than Nichijou does. There are way more pop culture references as well as political comedy and japanese word play in Joshiraku as well. All the same, I do believe that if you enjoyed Nichijou, you'll enjoy this series as well.
They have a very similar sense of humour and the feel of the anime is the same, both are a mix of cuteness, randomness and hilariousness. Next to this the animes star almost only girls and don't follow any big story lines or set subjects. I would say the intended audience for Joshiraku is a bit older and there is more knowledge of Japanese culture, Japanese language and general pop culture needed to fully enjoy the anime. As for the humour Nichijou has more of a focus on visual aspects and Joshiraku more on puns.
The show has a similar type of humor that completely ignores Western viewer's taste, but rather relies on Japanese viewer's fondness of unpredictable humors. They both have a talking animal (Sakamoto-san and Mesousa), a chibikko sensei in a lab coat (Hakase and Becky), and a dumb energetic girl (Yuuko and Himeko). Both shows also have a very stylish OP theme with plenty of movement.
Comedy. These anime are comedy-based, with the most random jokes that the creators could think of. They both have that school, slice of life element. There's lots of energy, and no drama, so if you just want to relax after a hard day of work, then these are for you.
Along with the parallels other users have mentioned, both Pani Poni Dash and Nichijou have broad casts and each character is given a chance to shine over the course of the show. By the time you've completed each series, you'll feel like the cast is your family.
Although GSNK has a stronger shoujo/romance feel than Nichijou, it is definitely more focused on comedy than actual romance. I wouldn't put it on the same level as Nichijou in regards to "randomness" but it has the same sort of "wtf?!" sense of humor without being crude or crass. It is a fun, somewhat simple anime. If Nichjou made you laugh, I would highly recommend GSNK.
Both are adaptations of gag 4koma manga. Nichijou had a lot of wild, unpredictable humor, and I feel Nozaki-kun does the same thing but with a focus on shoujo manga tropes. If you're an artist and liked the Nichijou episode about working on manga, this series has a lot of art-related jokes that will have you bursting with laughter. Both shows have really enjoyable, funny characters with interesting quirks!
There is nothing quite like Nichijou. It is on a whole other tier of humor, quality, and uniqueness. That being said, so is Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun! Both of these anime are truly sublime slice-of-life that fill you with an unprecedented joy and levity, truly some of the best slice of life anime. Both contain that wonderful unique humor that is guaranteed to lift you up and comfort you, while also containing a great amount of heart and beauty. I turn to both of these series when I'm feeling especially lost in life or feeling really down, and they always make me find myself again. Ahh, both of these are truly masterpieces!! I hope you enjoy :) read more
Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun happily pokes fun at the tropes and quirks of manga in a similar way to how Nichijou pokes fun at anime. Both are drop-dead hilarious, with interesting casts, and a good balance of continuous plot and random one-time jokes.
Both are about high school students who end up in wacky situations and both serve a "random" sense of humor with a wide variety of characters (and even a robot student). Both tend to be quite over the top when it comes to making a joke. The difference between these two is that Cromartie High is better than Nichijou.
Very much the same simplistic, minimalist animation style. Girls sitting at the back of the classroom, living their own ordinary or not so ordinary life. Packed with quirky humour and adorable characters. If you liked one of them you should like the other.
The art of Nichijou is very different than your typical anime. Lots of its art is somewhat cube or blockish which is very different from your typical anime... Actually almost everything about Nichijou is different than your typical anime. There are tiny plots in the series for each character, but the show is mainly focused on its jokes and randomness. It's very random at times, but those random things can sometimes be things you can connect to and can sometimes be very true. There are no other words I could use to describe this show other than random and funny. There's nothing really regular about this show even though it's called Nichijou (My Ordinary Life). read more
Before I start, This is my first time recommending an anime :)
They both are comedy anime and kinda doesn't make any sense. They both are simple and mini animes. Will recommend if you don't have anything else to watch ^^
Both shows feature random, quirky humour and situations involving high school students. Yasuna and Yuuko are also similar, both being clumsy and outgoing brown-haired characters. The presentation is also similar, with episodes being collections of gags and skits.
Both series use absurd and random jokes and humor.
There is very few things that are shown seriously (well In Nichijou there are none I suppose).
Difference: more parodies based on TV or mass-media in Seto, but in both case it simply works.
Slice of life that focuses on a small group of characters (mainly female) at their school. Humorous and dialogue-driven, both of these series contain many random moments. Yuyushiki has a bit more fluidity to its pacing and conversations. Nichijou is a bit more 'out there' in terms of everything.
In both series, there's the fun and lighthearted mood involving a group of characters/friends. They take on a slice of life theme with no direct story. However, what they both have is a lot of humor and catchy dialogues.
Both series are quite random and some of it does not make much sense. However, they are both entertaining in the sense of the characters' interactions.
Both series also take place at a school life setting.
Although both seems moe infused, it's not at all cliche. Both have humor that may seems kiddy, but it appeals just as well to all other ages. Not to mention the amazing music and animation that is apparent in both anime.
Osomatsu-san and Nichijou are both sketch-based comedy shows. Banking on their unique art style, often-absurdist humor and slapstick, but also being capable of subverting your expectations on occasion.
Osomatsu-san is more of a "true" sketch comedy in that the characters bring their personalities to a variety of roles within the sketches, rather than just playing the same role in every sketch like Nichijou.
Osomatsu is also more vulgar and "adult" with its humor, rather than relying solely on slapstick and absurdist situations like Nichijou.
Both shows focus primarily around a cast of six ridiculous characters enacting bizarre skits warping the mundane happenings of reality. They each have a different flavor to them (if Nichijou is Monty Python's Flying Circus, Osomatsu-san is Kids in the Hall), but if you're a junkie for classic comedy scenes and characters, both should do you well. Also probably the two most meme/shitpost worthy anime out there.
- they are both funny comedy, really random scenes that makes you think: ''WTF am I watching.''
- Osomatsu-sans OP reminded me of Nichijou too xD
- In Osomatsu-san the main characters are all boys and in Nichijou they are girls so only one sex with the main characters
Undeniably similar humor with a school setting. Both series mainly consists of a string humorous situations. While Nichijou hasn't really got much of a story to speak of, School Rumble has more development both in terms of story and characters, although still not very noticeable. If you liked one of them, you will surely enjoy the other.
Just like Nichijou, all the characters have different (and weird) personalities, but still lovable. The hilarious jokes that will make your stomach hurts and will make you pee from laughing so hard, and of course will make you humiliate yourself from laughing in public (if you're watching the anime in public while you're on your way to school).
Wordy, yes. Daily life, yes. Trying to do stuff in a Mr. Bean way, yes times ten. Both show share the ways of being funny, if you can really overlook the art style people normally can't.
Uh, sure, when you watch SZS it's feel like New Zealand All Blacks somehow dominate the monitor, but the real promise of SZS is just the wacky daily life of a very stereotypical cast of characters. Art style simply do the trick of differentiating the show from other school life.
If I like Nichijou I will like SZS, you kidding? No. Darker atmosphere in SZS is not real, it is at most halfway to being black comedy, the real show is pretty much daily life comedy that also discuss politics and social issue in an epic funny way. Nichijou jokes didn't relate much to current social issue though. read more
They both have laugh-out-loud moments that are strange or over the top. All the characters have their own quirks. The episodes have a similar format, with each episode consisting of a couple short segments that begin with their own 'title screen'
The characters are exactly the same; one bookworm/otaku girl, one energetic dopey girl and one headstrong, glutonous girl; all very different young schoolgirls. Considering both are comedy seriese's, character type is the most importiant element, as it is sutiable the character who is thrown into comical scenario; both are series's were the comic element can take you anywhere, depending on the writers taste.
Nichijou is by far superior in animation quality and humour although Mitsudomoe has the same feel and pacing, Mitsudomoe is a bit more on the odd sexual side of humour compared to Nichijou but both have really great comedic moments. If you are after something to sit bac, zone out and laugh too they are two peas in a pod and if you like one you should like the other.
How can Nichijou not be on the recommendations for this.
It posses a similar tone with short "stories" around random topics related to the main cast.
Even the top notch quality on animation and originality that Poputepipikku has is similar to that of Nichijou. (Even tough I've noticed that Poputepipikku uses mostly CG on their action shots, or to add more detail to the action made. In Nichijou's case it is mostly traditional animation with use of CG for emphasis on backgrounds and keep a consistent scale of said background while blending it with 2D painted backgrounds in close shots).
Also on both shows the characters have defined characteristics that makes then easy to differentiate from each other.
*NOTE: The humor in Poputepipikku is really different than that of Nichijou by being more targeted at mature audiences, but that still does not take away the fact that both are hilarious on their own field.* read more
Both are similar in that they are comedic series with outrageous skits and characters. Nichijou feels more refined as it has some semblance of story/recurring characters where Poputepipikku is just 100% short hilarious gags.
Similar short story/skit format, though Saiki K has more stories than skits. Both are slice of life, but only one has a psychic main character. Saiki himself takes up a lot more screen time than any one character in Nichijou. Both hilarious.
Chio chan no tsuugakuro is basically Nichijou meet Gaming. Both basically are about high school girl daily life with over the top comedy scenes. Chio and Manana relations in Chio chan no tsuugakuro is similar to Mio and Yuuko in nichijou
Both are great comedies that rely on rather random stories to provide humor. Characters drive both shows with magnificent displays of stupidity at the most unfortunate times. If you feel like getting away from all the overly perverted jokes that are now saturating the air waves, check these out.
There is some similar humor and some similar use of abrupt changes in animation style to show changes in characters' emotions. Both are not particularly plot-based, although Nisemonogatari has some plot, while Nichijou has no plot whatsoever. Both are pretty strange in general.
That a wonder of Japanese daily life to you. Full of stereotypical characters doing anything that would not bore you to the turn-off button. Daily life that is all fun and extraordinarily epic is what the anime trying to offer you.
If you like Aria because it offers you tranquility in an out of ordinary setting, then these two shows are doing the complete different by giving you epic joy in a relatively normal human environments. Unique selling points of Aria is about where they do stuffs, this two shows cares more about what they do.
4 high-school girls. on GA they go to an art school and and are a bit crazy and on Nichijou... well their world is all crazy. Both are adapted from 4-komas so you get a lot of laugh per episode! In addition, the animation and story style of Nichijou is certain to appeal to the artistically inclined.
Bizarre humor and a lot of completely ridiculous situations and characters with a school setting. Nichijou is a bit more PG-rated in its content, while Katte ni Kaizou is like a hard PG-13 in contrast, but it's quite likely that a fan of one will enjoy the other.
Both Nichijou and Katte ni Kaizou have a fast-paced, random and crazy humor which is filled with parodies and references to the Japanese culture. Even though Nichijou's funny scenes are almost completely non-sexual and Katte ni Kaizou's jokes are mostly sexual, whoever liked one of them will probably enjoy the other one too.
Also, the drawings are minimalistic in both of these series (maybe because they wanted to give the viewers the feeling that they're reading the manga instead of watching the anime), and their OP's and ED's are (almost) equally magnificent.
Just like Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai, Nichijou features a blue-haired heroine who is very sick and delusional. For example, Rikka Takanashi is convinced that she has magical powers, whereas high schooler Mio Naganohara believes she has a chance at winning the love of her life, Sasahara. Mio also draws sickening fanfiction of Sasahara in her school notebooks, much like how Rikka's friend Dekomori put together the fan-made magical compendium, Mabinogion.
Yamada-kun actually has much more of the 'nichjou' feel than Nichijou. Tonari no Yamada-kun tells the story of the very normal Yamada family and the humorous going-ons as the traditional Japanese family unit encounters various very ordinary events. Nichijou is Tonari no Yamada-kun seen through Dadaist goggles; absurd reactions and outrageous events that are definitely not every-day in the real world.
Both uses a similar sense of core humour; deadpan and full of irony. There are also quite a few famous Haiku poems featured/referenced in both.
Both have storyline about daily life. The Difference of The Yamada's and Nichijou is the yamada's comedy is not really epic or excessive . And the yamada's tells more about their family event with some jokes that usually your parent or your sibling might do.
Slice of life comedies that usevignettes to tell witty stories which are often very random in nature.Lashings of moe and general endearment abound in each. If you liked one you'll probably like the other, although the characters are very different in comparison.
Barakamon and Nichijou are similar shows in terms of what genre each show are a part of, both being slice of life and comedy. Both have amazing art, Nichijou being a completely unique art style and Barakamon just having "Those scenes"; the ones that make you sit in awe. However aside from both having the effect of putting a smile on your face from how cozy and humorous their story can be at times, that is where the similarities end. Barakamon was produced during the summer season of 2014 with 12 episodes, animated by Kinema Citrus (A fairly new studio). Where as Nichijou was produced during spring of 2011 with 26 episodes, animated by Kyoto Animations. The two both follow a different way of being told, Nichijou follows the format of telling multiple stories within the duration of the episode with little correlation from one story to the next. Barakamon follows a more standard format, each episode being a single story with the episodes actually correlating to one another; Barakamon has a much more linear theme compared to Nichijou. The two also differ in the type of comedy slightly, Barakamon takes on a more realistic view and manages to find humor in everyday situations. Nichijou's humor relies more on the scenes that have you wondering "Why is this escalating so quickly?". Regardless of how the story is told or art or whatever else; the two are both very enjoyable watches. Even if slice of life isn't exactly your kind of genre, I urge you to give either a chance. read more
They both have a very similar feel to them. Fast pace and you don't always know what the heck is going on? The comedy is similar by making jokes by having the most random thing happen or something as different as you would have expected.
Both are very well made slice of life anime focusing on every day life of the main character and friends. There are a combination of awkward and hilarious situations. Each can be used as a pick me up during stressful times.
Seitokai Yakuindomo (SYD) is basically the Nichijou of sex jokes.
Each contain short-ish clips that add together to make a bigger story.
SYD has more of a plot, but still doesn't have that much conflict.
Nichijou and Amagi Brilliant Park are both in my top 5 favourites list, and for the same reason - the similar, crazy humour, hilarious characters and the light, positive mood and atmopshere.
While Amagi is definetily a bit more vulgar than Nichijou, I'm sure that if one of the animes made you laugh, the other one will too.
If you liked the pure-hearted comedy and slice of life aspect of Nichijou, you might like this as well. Some might think the art style is a bit peculiar, but if you can get past it, this is a highly enjoyable anime.
It's obvious in my eyes, both are parodies, one parodies the fantasy genre, and one our daily life.They are the best examples of their categories, and they do a fantastic job at that.So if you want to fill the void left by KonoSuba and didn't watch Nichijou, go and watch it now
If you were to combine Nichijou and Seitokai Yakuindomo, you would get this show.
How it is similar to Nichijou:
- Everyday life, with exaggerated reactions to pretty normal things happening.
- Most budget goes in to those reactions
- It isn't a flowing story, but consists of multiple chapters
How it is similar to Seitokai Yakuindomo:
- Perverted jokes
- Mc's are 1 guy and multiple girls (for now atleast)
- Same kind of humour
How they are similar in both:
- The story takes place mostly in school
although shirokuma cafe is at a much slower, toned-down pace compared to nichijou's extreme high-tempo comedy, they're both very slice-of-life and both have similar absurd humor with a lot of puns and fun unique characters to boot
Top class high school humor with everlastingly recurrent moments (which are always, paradoxically, the elements of surprise). Some surrealist elements. Similar moe characters (dumb one, kind one, shy one, cheeky one, etc.). Endless mines for reaction images and memes.
Both shows start with two girls finding a talking animal that ends up becoming their companion (Both shows have five main girls overall). In both shows, there is a blue haired girl who's in love with a guy in her class, but he ends up with another girl instead. Also, both shows have this girl who can pull guns out of thin air. BOTH SHOWS ARE GREAT!
While both of these animes have very different plots from each other, there are some similarities:
Both shows use their over exaggerated movements and animations, to add contrast to the story, which is a source of comedy.
Both shows also have rather unique art style and character designs, which are rather simple looking, and not that similar to the normal anime style we all know.
Of course Nichijou and Space Dandy aren't much alike, however. The way these anime handle their comedy struck me as awfully similar, There's a lot of randomness involved. Having two totally different settings it's hard to compare the two but I still find myself trying. Have you ever laughed at something but didn't know exactly what was going on, not grasping the situation? Do you like the element of surprise in comedy? Then you might want to give Space Dandy a shot! (Please do not be turned off by the fanservice, it's hilarious)
Both series are cute little series with short and sweet scenes of an adorable cast. Both have little quirks and catches to the scenes, that surely will make you at least crack a smile. The only difference would be that Tales of Gekijou revolves around Protagonists from different Tales of games, and Nichijou revolves around an original cast for the series.
Top ridiculous comedy.
Over the top exaggerated and lovable characters.
Both are great anime to see if you just want to laugh.
The main difference is that Nichijou's comedy is more heavily animated to create even more chaos out of the situations and D-Frag! has a harem-type approach but it is not main point of the series.
Both very light-hearted, slice-of-life shows sure to be a pleasant way to pass the time. While on the surface, Nichijou might not be as outlandish as NV to feature an alien, both shows explore the lives and feelings of many different characters, from the ordinary human being to the robot fitting into society.
You can basically watch from any episode but there is still progression. They are both light-hearted and barely anything serious happens. Both have quite a big cast and are shows that are extremely enjoyable to watch and a good way to pass the time. Motto is a 100x focused more on ecchi—meaning lots of oppai. Nichijou focuses a lot more on over-the-top comedy and situations. In Motto, the cast all know each other, whilst in Nichijou it's just the "daily life" of random high schoolers. The art is much "fluffier" in Nichijou than anything else. Motto contains aliens, strange medicines, Rito's life, while Nichijou is just the daily life of crazy high schoolers. read more
Comedy is best enjoyed in little spurts of punchlines so as to not bore the audience. Each episode should contain mini-episodes that bring home the point in a joke and quickly move on to the next one so as to not linger. I believe Kitakubu Katsudou Kiroku and Nichijou nailed this on the head and provided us with great comedies. This element garners both a laugh and a fondness for the characters. And even if some jokes are dry, the characters from both shows win our "aw that's cute" moment we sometimes think of while watching. I recommend this pair just for those reasons. Enjoy watching! read more
Both stories depict the not-so-boring everyday of a small community with a good bunch of random elements and comedy. Yet Hare+Guu is set in a strange Jungle and Nichijou in a quite abnormal modern Japan, both share silly characters beyond stereotypes and a strong sense of humor and expression, that eventually drives the series on surprisingly serious situations. At last but not at least, the art direction in both is simple and refreshing with chubby charadesign and minimalistic sceneries, yet Kyoto Animation goes on a far higher level of animation with Nichijou.
Both shows carry that permanent comical and upbeat tone of absurd situations and fanciful, imaginative circumstances that let jokes flowing out of each episode. They almost never take themselves seriously while carrying a blatant, frontal, and absolutely NOT subtle sense of humor. If heavy comedy priding itself in being silly is what you're looking for, you probably should be watching it.
These shows will probably be enjoyable for fans of either, because they both have a group of cute girls with varying personalities and temperaments, comedy (more-so with Nichjou) and daily life. Both do not have ecchi fanservice, so they can be enjoyed by anyone, including those who don't like perverted girly anime series.
Althought Kill la Kill and Nichijou don't have anything in common in terms of the plot or genre, the fast paced and over the top humor is present in both of them. Kill la Kill focuses more on the action while Nichijou is a full-blown comedy, but if you appreciate exaggerated things for the sake of hilarity, you'll enjoy both of the series.
A bunch of girls just being silly in both shows. Nichijou is far superior though. Actually, if you've enjoyed either season of YY you must watch Nichijou. It is a masterpiece, quite possibly the Azumanga Daioh of this decade.
Both anime are slow-paced and are very amusing.
Nichijou is a little on the more random and funnier side, whereas A Channel has a more definite theme to each episode. Both are very good, if you enjoyed A-Channel, you will most likely enjoy Nichijou as well.
Both anime have cute characters and mix otherwise normal slice-of-life comedy with strange and fantastic events and beings to spice things up a bit.
Potemayo has somewhat more subtle humor, but that's more down to how over the top Nichijou is with its humor than Potemayo being "normal".
Anyone can run a production system for bullets since they are made to be exactly the same. However, only gifted script writers can produce infinite amount of conversation that always do a clean shot at your laughing nervous system.
Nichijou and Minami-Ke make jokes with words. This two shows are wordy I can't deny that, but they are still pretty funny even after translation. That make a potential comedy that can air anywhere in the world. While Japanese comedy anime have a lot of overacting used to deliver jokes (even the prestigious Gintama go overacting very often,) Nichijou doesn't rely much on them (there are still some, for sure.) Minami-Ke somehow didn't use it at all. You won't see any anime that is as funny without the use of overaction any time soon.
I will still recommend you to watch Minami-Ke if you find Nichijou funny anyway. Funny conversation, wordy but not boring, and living ordinary life in a distinctively strange way are the shared values of both shows. read more
While the settings are quite different, I can't help noticing the similarity in the deadpan humor and comedic timing between Nichijou and Hinamatsuri. The animation also feels similar in the way extreme facial expressions are used to highlight the jokes. Both shows deliver a lot of laugh out loud moments that are not too common these days.
What do you get when you put together, "slice-of-life", well written "crack-fic comedy" and school. Well, you might get Nichijou, or you might get SKET Dance. Both take simular subject matter and take different spins on it.
There's something about the deadpan humour and slice of life situations that makes me think about Nichijou when I watched Kimi To Boku. It might also be the art-style, it has soft colours and nice and simple character design.
Even if Nichijou is kind of more exaggerated, Tanaka-kun has a similiar atmosphere thanks to its color palette, simple character designs and the fact that it consists on comedic sketches, which tend to revolve around a particular theme or thing happening.
Both shows are heavily based in surreal comedy
Both are super over-the-top
Both throw jokes and gags at a very quick pace (Teekyuu is much faster paced)
Both center around a group of girls who are friends
Both slice of life/school centered
Both have a very well done comedy style which focuses on over-exaggeration. Both have a largely female cast both of which are super cute and enjoyable to watch. Nisekoi has a romantic plot where Nichijou has none.
Nichijou and Kyouran Kazoku Nikki are quite similar; they are both quite crazy, and include lots of slapstick comedy. Kyouran Kazoku Nikki includes a slightly more in-depth story line, but I enjoyed both series for the same reasons.
Both have absurd moments and exaggerations at times. Although Nichijou does not follow a coherent storyline, many elements remain the same. The main character is very similar to Tenma: both are childish and naive.
I'm surprised no one recommended Nichijou. Very similar slice of life and comedy style. Regarded as one of the best comedy anime. Both explores ecchi humors without being an ecchi anime (only people who watched on of them would understand what I mean). If you like Denki-gai no Honya-san you would definitely like Nichijou too.
