As a big Keiichi Arawi fan, when I learned of the existence of CITY, I absolutely jumped at the opportunity to read his newest work. I'm very glad that this manga lives up well to the expectations Nichijou left me with.
The best way I can describe this manga is "Nichijou lite", thanks to Arawi's classic absurdist humor and ridiculous cast of characters. This time, instead of taking place in a school setting, CITY focuses on a community in the city the main character, Nagumo, has recently moved to. It’s got all the things I loved about Nichijou, such as wonderfully ridiculous events happening for no
reason, incredible overreactions to the simplest things, gut-bustingly funny faces when you least expect them, and the nagging feeling in the back of my head that Arawi Keichi actually has a plot in mind and every absurd event is somehow connected.
I highly recommend this manga if you enjoy weird comedy, and I doubly highly recommend this manga if you enjoyed Nichijou.
