I wonder if KyoAni will decide to keep the style of humor from Nichijou in their future anime... it would be quite fortunate if they did.


Sounds unlikely, considering that Nichijou's sense of humor isn't theirs to keep or lose to begin with, they just borrowed it from a mangaka and made it move on the screen, the same way as they borrowed Fumoffu's, or Haruhi's, sense of humor from novelists, and Clannad's sense of humor from VNovelist.

That's what studios do.

KyoAni is a good studio as far as high quality animation and professional directing goes, but don't see too much into it, as if they would be telling their own brand of stories.

I loved Nichijou, but that surreal, absurdist brand of humor doesn't strike me as something you'd be able to use in very many other shows and have it fit as well. Certainly neither of their two upcoming series seem appropriate, nor any of their past series we're likely to see sequels for (Haruhi and K-ON!, basically).

Let's hope this is better than that crapfest, Nichijou. Much, MUCH better...

If you thought Nichijou was a crapfest, you have no real reason to like anything that comes out of Kyoto Animation.

So don't expect anything.


Huh, KyoAni are my favourite anime studio and I thought Nichijou was charmless bullshit. And I've seen a lot of people who like Nichijou specifically because it's NOT like other KyoAni shows. :|

OH WOW it sounds like every kyo ani show ever

Yes this setup is completely identical to FMP TSR, FMP Fumoffu, Munto, Clannad, K-ON!, Lucky Star, Nichijou, Air, Hyouka, and Kanon.

Oh wait it's completely different from every single one of them, and is only remotely comparable to one (Haruhi), and even that's a serious stretch.

Oops.
Oops is fucking right.

So you are saying that Nichijou is like Clannad, Kanon, Air and so on...? Of course you can dislike Nichijou and still like Kyoto Animations.

The reason why there's no little busters! anime...I found this website on google.

Nooooo~
But art of Chuunibyo looks fun + 'school love comedy' from KyoAni sounds good.


really sad indeed...I really want Little Busters! anime TT_TT
if KyoAni not fully occupied by Kadokawa...Little Busters! will be possible! TT_TT

I'll watch it since it's KyoAni, and I don't see how Nichijou was a shitfest (It was pretty freaking amazing, honestly)


The price killed Nichijou in sales, $90+ for 2 cour anime doesn't fly unless it's IM@S and the ep structure of the DVD/BD release was terrible, it had more than the standard 9 volumes in that category and at the median $90, it's overpriced by Japanese standards.

Again a new anime by KyoAni, even though the whole world is waiting for more Haruhi (or other fantastic series by them). But we'll never know what this will bring us.

Also, is it me, or does the other girl without the eyepatch look like a personified version of Charlotte from Madoka Magica?

I stopped whining about "why there is no anime about *any great VN*". I'm whining more "why *some great VN* get such a crappy adaptation" (see how large plot cuts Ore-tachi ni Tsubasa wa Nai and Maji de Watashi ni Koishinasai got and how bad Fortune Arterial was adapted but on the same side totally average Yosuga no Sora and mashiro-iro saymphony got nearly perfect adaptations).

This summarizes my thoughts about 4/9 of my most favourite eroge!
Especially on the Oretsubasa and Majikoi half. My god, why the hell did they ruin them..

The preview doesn't have audio? Didn't seem to work here.
Anyways, the art is pretty nice, I like eye-patches so I may watch.

Dec 28, 2011 9:18 AM by Liinah

Like the female characters

The comedy could be decent, and since it's an LN adaptation, I'm all in.
