Kyoani’s Next Project is Nichijou

Kyoto Animation, the masters of all things moe, have announced their next project: an animated adaptation of Keiichi Arawi's gag manga Nichijou.

Yeah, I've never heard of it either. Apparently it's something of a mix between Azumanga Diaoh and Cromartie High School, featuring moeblob characters, slapstick comedy and random bouts of deer wrestling. Sounds like this series is right up Kyoani's alley.

Could this be the next Lucky Star?

    No.

  • i can’t believe they put this instead of haruhi or is this just a side project while Haruhi season 3 is getting done in background behind this anime

    unlikely but possibly

    regardless they should strike while the irons hot as The Disappearance Of Haruhi Suzumiya or suzumiya haruhi no shioshitsu as well as novel 10 comes out it will be a golden opportune to make a season 3 while the haruhi fans are still flocking to the merchandise.

    well that’s just my opinion what’s yours Kyoto Animation?

  • Oh goodness. I’m glad they’re doing something new. I love K-on, and I love Lucky Star, and I love Haruhi, but those series are done. I don’t think a second season of Lucky Star would be quite the same, a third season of Haruhi would just be terrible. ( I have a whole rant on milking Haruhi, but i won’t get into that.) a third season of K-on might be good depending on how season two rounds out. but I’m getting off subject.
    I think its a good time to introduce something fresh and new nobodies heard about.
    I think no matter what, I’ll give it a shot, it won’t be lucky star, it’ll be something new!

    Since its from Kyoto, I will at least give it a shot. On another note, there’s something unexplainably fantastic about the cover to the manga.

    As to whether this will be the next Lucky Star: I can’t see that happening. Lucky Star is god, and I would rather see another season of that than a new K-on!, Haruhi, or even a new series like Nichijou. In fact, I only watched the first season of Haruhi and K-on!, and don’t plan on watching the second season of either. So if I third season of either rolls around…yah, not even a consideration.

    “Could this be the next Lucky Star?” — Not really…I still expect a second Lucky Star or third K-ON! though…

    Why did Haruhi fail? Y_Y and when I loved it. I really would like a season 3, but it seems impossible now.

    After reading the first chapter one thing became obvious, it is A LOT like Azumanga Diaoh, but with robots and deer. Either way it was pretty funny, and I’m sure that this anime will be good too.

  • Adrian_aniceta

    please make a season 3 of haruhi suzumiya

  • Adrian_aniceta

    please make a season 3 of haruhi suzumiya

  • Ranma

    I love this anime…its just beyond awesome! I believe its actually on par with Lucky Star having watched them both 🙂 

  • Yeah

    I actually like nichijou a bit better than Lucky Star, it’s a bit more original, and funnier too. Just my opinion 😀

    I really hope they make a season 3
