A slice of life with comedy elements isn't the same as a pure comedy show. Theres plenty of those, there just aren't many shows that focus on the comedy as the main selling point.

Which sucks, because I LOVE comedies. Fuck why don't they do comedies more often?
We always get those slice of life comedies which just spend too much time trying to have a shitty story or romance and end up sucking at comedy....


Nichijou bombing should tell you why they don't make many pure comedies. It had everything you needed for a successful show: KyoAni, cute girls, great production values, tons of marketing. Yet it bombed since they forgot the most important thing: Otaku generally don't buy comedies.



No, they thought "random stuff not making sense and being weird = funny". And that's not true. Nichijou was often times just weird, but not funny. You could also say it was VERY hit and miss. That's why it failed. There are some great comedies out there, but it's not easy to get to a level where many people like it. Doesn't hinder the good ones to become successful enough though. (Something like Working, Baka Test, Lucky Star, Yuru Yuri, School Rumble, Gintama, Hayate, Squid Girl and so on) Even those aren't for everyone of course, but that's normal.

And what's this with there isn't much comedy? What's with the new Hayate season, Seitokai no Ichizon, Hidamari Sketch.. those should focus more than enough on Comedy and/or Parody. And that's just this season.
I really don't think there isn't enough comedy. Would be sad otherwise because that's one of the few things which Anime tend to do right. Drama tends to be way too exaggerated. (Although there are enough who like that melodrama which you can also find in any soap opera, just not in 2d of course) Good action needs a good budget and someone who can use it well. Comedy of course also depends, but it seems to be harder to screw up.

Art tells me it is indeed a nonsense comedy anime. Might try if it's not an anime-short.

Nov 17, 2012 10:30 AM by HauntingShock

Art is ugly.

Pencil stuck in nose tells me the humor will probably be about as infantile as Gintama's.

inb4 penis, poop, and nose-picking "jokes."

If it's anything like The Daily Lives of Highschool Boys, then it's going to be hilarious. Yeah, I'm always up for watching more shenanigans done by teenage boys.

Nov 17, 2012 9:05 AM by Sanguis

I hope it's funny. More Nichibros-ish stuff is always welcome.
Art looks good so far, potentially hilarious stuff.

This pretty much.
Has to be abnormally funny to justify such art in my eyes.

Given how short its run was and its only just NOW being announced and airing in Winter pretty much guarantees this as one of those 3 minute shorts.

Nov 17, 2012 6:36 AM by RyanSaotome

I can see how nonsense it is. XD

That cover looks hilarious.

Nov 17, 2012 5:32 AM by Sir_Lexa

This looks good.

Now only to hope they won't do 3-5 minute short episodes.

well, that's surprising. I might watch it...and I might not. the art doesn't look too appealing to me but maybe I'll look past that and watch it anyway. Unless...its a 5-minute short.
