Nichijou is pretty silly, doesn’t really make any sense and the art and animation is kinda meh. But it does bring in the laughs, which started to kick in for me until the “Selamat Pagi” gag, which means good morning in Malay (and for those of you wondering, Selamat Malam is good night).

It kinda reminds me of Kyou no Go no Ni, although I can’t really find myself to really like Nichijou just yet. While there are some parts that just makes you laugh, there are just many stupid jokes that ruins the mood.

I’ll probably need to give Nichijou another episode before deciding whether or not to continue watching it.

    Wait, was that a trolling on the translators side or the anime it self using the selamat pagi?

    Not trolling, she really did say selamat pagi a few times, and was eventually greeted with a selamat malam. XD

    Art and animation is meh? I keep noticing how detailed and fluidly the characters move, talk and make facial expression. Just because they choose a more simplistic style for the art doesn’t mean it’s bad.

    Perhaps I was a bit too hasty in judging the art/animation. Watching the 2nd episode, it looks better. Probably just wasn’t used to it lol

    I smiled big time when they said “Selamat Pagi” and “Selamat Malam”. (I’m Indonesian :D) I suppose animes like this need time before you like them. I remember Lucky Star started off rather slow and Gintama’s first two episodes were kind of boring, but after a few more eps, they grow on you.

    Also, they mentioned “Sepak Takraw” in the second ep, another Indonesian/Malay thing…Is Keiichi-san part Indonesian or something? 😛

    Hmm… well the show does look interesting and funny enough. Looks a lot like Lucky Star… I definitively want to check it out and see if the humor is good enough.

    Let us know what you think of the next episodes, please! 😀
