Ah well, it had to happen: an unfortunately crappy book from Keiichi Arawi, my favourite new creator. The fourth volume of Nichijou doesnt have nearly the amount of fun sketches that Ive gotten used to reading in this series.

I laughed at the teacher in love with the other teacher and the repeating gag. The poor hapless principal is still funny - this time not only did his toupee fall off but also his false teeth!

The best characters, the Professor, Nano and Mr Sakamoto, didnt really have any

Nichijou is one of those manga series that I just look forward to.

It is also a series which has humour that is hit and miss. Some jokes work fine for me, some jokes just get old. For instance in this one I was just annoyed with the professors childish things. Yes, I know she is a child, but it seems she never does grow up. Instead she does the most stupid things, blames it on others, hurts peoples feelings, and in overall she is the least favourite of all my characters.

Luckily the rest of the

The theme park chapter with Yukko's lost wallet is the best evereverever.

So, after reading four volumes I will not be continuing this series. I find the changes in the layout from chapter to chapter to be quite confusing, you have to spend the first page figuring out if you are reading right to left from top to bottom or top to bottom then left to right. Additionally I feel as if there are too many characters to follow. Finally it is really hard to figure out the ages of the various characters as everyone looks the same age. It could have had potential, it just ...more

When I first picked up this series, I had no idea what I was reading. It did not make sense at all to me. I gave it a second try, and now I am hooked! I think this book along with #1-3 are funny, punny, and ridiculous! I need the books to be translated faster!

A really funny book with not that many translation issues. Some jokes just don't work due to the language barrier though.

Another great volume. Good series, but this book was a bit boring compared to the rest of the series.

Not as big a fan of the teacher hijinks as the students. So far volume 2 is my favorite of these bizarre sketch series.

There were quite a few funny ones here. My faves were the coffee shop, the theme park, and the daruma.

While I thought the last volume was the best yet, this one was a step back, especially if you're a fan of the anime. The vast majority of this volume is stuff that was adapted for the small screen, and it's just personally not my favorite content. While Nichijou isn't a big feel good series, as characters are the butt of jokes most of the time, there's usually a cute moment or two throughout, but these particular stories all caught our characters at their worst with not a lot of levity to end ...more

I love you, Weirdly Japanese Peanuts. This volume went a bit more dry and mundane than the last one, and it's nice that Arawi switches it up once in a while.

Also: Sakamoto looks fuggin' shifty in the manga. In the Anime, he's a mildly-frightened-looking cat, but here, he just looks like he's got something to hide. There are a few vignettes that end with him just staring, almost like he's plotting his time. (It's hilarious, of course.)
Arawi really uncorks the weird in this one. It's more what I wish the rest of the series has been so far. There were still a number of gags that went right over my head, but I laughed out loud plenty.

Probably the funniest book in the series so far. Sooo many excellent moments from the anime. There were several times that I literally laughed out loud while reading this book, and I'm very glad I was alone at the time, haha.

If you've stuck with the series this long, you're getting more of the same absurd humour and adorable gags. Still some cultural references that are beyond me, but it's so charming I hardly mind.

It's a series that's not for everyone, by I find it pretty darn adorable.

I really should stop reading these on the bus ride to work. I end up laughing so loudly, everyone else on the bus gets really annoyed at me.
