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.

This was a decent episode to show what this anime will offer you when it start's airing in April. It showed a world where everything isn't the way it seems. Where you have a cat that can talk, a student who's a robot and a little child who seems to be a scientist or a doktor.

The characters in this episode are both adrorable and fun watching.
So if you like slice of life slash comedy anime's or if you liked Lucky Star then you should check this episode out.

Okay, I do not understand what this 'episode 0' is about. Skip this episode and go directly to watch episodes 1-26, because this one has nothing to do with the actual anime; it's just some try-to-be for the REAL anime. Believe me, this episode is not worth watching. PLUS it makes you think the following episodes will be all like that, when it isn't like that at all.

This first episode is boring, the music, the expressions, it's all boring. Unlike the following episodes, which are all amazing and perfectly well-done and I couldn't stop laughing with all of them. It's as if this had read more

I give this scrawny little OVA a 70/100

We all know Kyoto Animation, don't we? The famous anime production company quite well known for making Key's visual novels (namely Air, Kanon, and Clannad) and ridiculous slice of life moe manga (Lucky Star, K-On, etc.) into anime, all of which become their cash cows. Quite honestly, I prefer them when they're doing visual novel adaptations, not adaptations of moe/slice of life manga. To me, Lucky Star was great, K-On the first season was okay, K-On the 2nd season was just tedious to get through, and now there's this anime, Nichijou (My Ordinary Life as dubbed by Crunchyroll).

Welcome to Nichijou Beta!

"Episode 0" is a fairly accurate title for this OVA, as it's a part of the Nichijou series yet oddly unfamiliar in many ways. You're certainly not wasting your time by watching it, but don't expect the same experience going into the main series.

Quite a few things stood out as dissimilar to me. For starters, the episode was way slower than your standard Nichijou experience, with less events, skits, and transitions involved. Rather than the episodic division into several "parts", only three events were shown (one with Yuuko & Mio, one with the Shinonome family, and one with the entire Trio Sucharaka). read more
