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.

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.

Very similar to Nichijou. A School comedy with absurd gags that will definitely make you laugh.

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  read more

Very similar moods. Lots of very in-depth discussion about very pointless things. The comedy is both very well written.

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.

Both shows entertain with frivolous and random comedy. Nichijou has full episodes and more characters while Seki is shorter and, so far, focuses on only two people.

A look into an ordinary day of some extraordinary people's lives. As soon as they get up in the morning, absolutely anything goes.

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.

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.

Do you like the skit based, character centered comedy of Nichijou, especially its strong main core of Tsukomi-Boke-Weirdo characters, but just wished that instead of being cute and wholesome, it was cynical and mean spirited? In that case, this is the show for you!

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.

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.

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).

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. 
report Recommended by Karudima
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.

Both are hilarious comedies with lots of random moments, sometimes not even making sense but still laughtable. While Gintama is more shounen, Nichijou is more slice of life.

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.

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.

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'

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.

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

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.

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 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.

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.  
report Recommended by ataraxial
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

Both are a collection of loosely connected and short gag skits. There are many one-off jokes, but also some recurring settings develop a small semblance of plot. They explore mundane life through an absurd lens. Both explore the endearing relationship between a very human-like robot and their creator. It's all very endearing. Most of it is lighthearted, though Xiao Lu he Xiao Lan can get pretty heavy-hearted during long episodes.

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 absurd, over the top comedies. Where Nichijou focuses mainly on exaggerating everyday experiences to comedic nonsense and putting its characters in a wide variety of uncomfortable circumstances caused by their own ineptitude, 4-nin focuses on a cast of surreal, otherworldly characters desperately trying to keep their secret lives from being uncovered and the comedy that arises as their masks begin to slip.

There are a lot of short funny sketches placed in a big unified plot. There are also two story lines in each anime connected to each other (loli doctor and robotthree school friends and their class for Nichijou and KakushiHime for Kakushigoto). In Kakushigoto they are more connected and closer, but I consider them two separate (in meaning independent and whole) story lines. Except in Kakushigoto different points of view help to understand characters, while Nichijou's story lines rarely unite.

Both shows are focused on comedy of the nonsensical, reality breaking, crazy situations type.

The art style is also very similar and both have great voice work.

Both are over the top school anime focusing on a small group of friends. Both share small impressive bouts of animation when most comedic, (more so in Nichijou) both shows place the characters in almost any circumstance and all characters are very distinct in personality and appearance within there respective shows. Nichijou longer episodes are good for continuous laughs and binging on a day off, while Ani ni is great for when you have less time and want a great laugh or something Nijijou-esque.

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.  read more

Both shows carry that permanent comical and upbeat tone of absurd situations and fanciful, imaginative circumstances that let jokes flowing out of each episode.

Watching Onimai was like watching Shinonome Lab residents and their guests for 12 episodes, except there was no talking cat in it. Some soundtracks in both shows are composed in orchestra style, and the one song that plays in some episodes in Onimai is basically an arrangement of "Green Green" song, which was the ending theme in EP 18 of Nichijou.

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  read more

Both shows have a large cast of 'mob characters' that all have their individual designs, quirks, and personalities.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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".

Both are slice of life comedies following daily lifes of group of people involving random moments and hilarious gags. Strage+ has shorter episodes.

Slice of life comedies featuring three girls that have similar personalities. The difference there is that Nichijou is much weirder and slapstick.

- both are about odd occurrences in daily life - similar humor and pacing - quirky and lighthearted

Both are episodic comedies who focus mainly on character interactions, rather than having an actual plot. All Saints Street is less random than Nichijou, but it is just as humorous and endearing! Both also have really good consistent animation and banger openings!

Wonderfully chaotic comedies with fast-paced gags that are sometimes out of this world with weirdness, but still greatly hilarious.

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.

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

If you enjoy a gag anime that consists of cute girls duing weird/random things, chances are high you might enjoy those two series.

Sketchbook is basically a slower-paced Nichijou. Both are set mostly at a school, are full of jokes, and are sure to make you smile. They both also have talking cats.
