Daily lives of highschoolers may seem a commonplace concept, but that certainly does not apply to the trio at Tokisadame High. For Yuuko Aioi and her two eccentric friends, every day is a unique experience. From stumbling across a wrestling match between the principal and a deer to indulging in a chopstick battle over a sausage—the excitement never ends.

One day, their lives take a turn for the bizarre when they encounter an insecure robot maid, her young excitable creator, and their down-to-earth talking cat. To the people in the world of Nichijou, daily life continues to be an endless roller coaster!

[Written by MAL Rewrite]

Volume 2: Nichijou no Prototype (2 chapters)


Nichijou has been published in English by Vertical Inc. under the Vertical Comics imprint since March 29, 2016.

I chose this manga at Barnes and Noble by looks alone and I'm glad I did! This manga never fails to make me smile and the characters are very likable! Also, this is my very first review.

Art: 10
I have always loved this chibi-style art for manga ...
