Funimation has the subtitled-only series Nichijou – My Ordinary Life out now as a DVD/BD combo set priced at $69.98 (26 episodes, baby!) and we’re glad to see more promotion for it. The latest is a fun clip that focuses on one of the many strange events that our main cast of characters see unfold, never mind gets involved with. The series is one that’s definitely fun, though I think it’s a slow build until it fully connected, that we’re definitely excited to see finally get a release here.
Check out our review of the series.
The manga property spawned an anime adaptation that was simulcast by Crunchyroll and briefly licensed by Bandai Entertainment before they closed up shop, effectively placing a hold on the property.
Plot concept: From the creators of K-On! and Lucky Star comes a slice-of-life series packed with absurd antics and hilarious high school predicaments. Follow the adventures of three ordinary girls as they make life’s awkward moments a thousand times worse. Along with a colorful bunch of classmates, they learn their most important lessons the hard way. Like whether goats are an appropriate form of transportation, who would win in a wrestling match between the principal and a deer, and most notably, if the three-second rule applies to weenies that fly through mohawks. Meanwhile down the street, a pocket-sized professor makes life difficult for a robot who just wants to be normal. But normal is the last thing you can expect in a town where salmon fall from the sky. In fact, the only thing you can count on is your friends, but even they are totally weird.
