Was it the time it came out? Was it the lack of fanservice? Why did this not become as well known as KyoAni's other hits?

Poor writing. The characterization was severely lacking and the plot was non existent.

Moreover, all the jokes fell flat because of their lolsorandum nature and poor timing. The writers should be ashamed, the budget was so high and they fucked it up. The typical response is that "hurr durr context makes it funny" but even the nips hated the "jokes".

Most egregious of all is the forced animation- that is to say scenes where the animation makes up for the goddawful writing. Consider these clips where each "joke" could have been make in 20-30s, but is instead dragged out to be 2m+.

There is literally nothing funny about these but the forced animation fools viewers into thinking that it's good.

tl;dr: only weebs like it nips hate it and with good reason

Hard work and effort never pays off, and people generally never appreciate it.

Why did Nichijou flop while Osomatsu is going to sell great?

Aren't they similar?

Because kadokawa was dumb, too many BD volumes at high price, nobody is going to buy that.

Please, if there's one thing that's consistent is that the Japs have the worst taste in anime on the planet.

I love this meme.
>>
>>133666276
Not at all, no.
In the most superficial way that they're both comedies, maybe.
>>
Because it's a subpar show as with all Kyoto Animation Co., Ltd. shows.
>>
>>133666241
This is... actually a good explanation of forced animation.
>>
>>133666241
Japanese humor in general is terrible though, and yet some comedies sell more than Nichijou and that without the crazy animation.
>>
>>133666276
The humor in the two are different. And Osomatsu's BD is going to have a first episode different from the one that aired, so that gave the series a noticeable boost to sales
>>
>>133666374

They went all out for this series and it never drops in quality at all, one of the few shows where I can really say that, of course it's a fuckin' slice of life so it doesn't need good animation but they went the extra mile, I can really appreciate it for that. Not only is the animation great but the timing on all the scenes is perfect, plus it's really wacky.

It's a shame it flopped.

It would've encouraged KyoAni to make a show that actually looks different from the previous one.

Now they just need to find some interesting writers.

Then if they decided to dump the plot and characterization entirely couldn't they at least write good jokes?

Way to write off legitimate criticisms as memes, is this how low /a/ has fallen? I remember back in 2006/2007 /a/ would actually bother arguing points, now you redditors just spam buzzwords over and over again.

There was no plot to begin with. This is an adaption, not an original series.

Because it went from a comedy to Nano's slice of life and that sucks.
Her shit is bereable in the manga because the professor is not a whiny high pitched rat that embodies the reason the chink birth rate is so low.

>>133669587
Amazon.co.jp lists ¥8,208 as original price for the original BDs, for two episodes with no real extras (someone ripped pretty pathetic one-minute "specials", but those might have been episode trailers).

The BD box is listed at just 35k and costs 25k right now.

>>133666241
Nichijou is a spectacle. If you want to enjoy it, it must be from that perspective. I can tell you fail to see.it this way since you use the 'forced animation' meme. It's forced by nature.

And don't lie. It's funny. The situations are amusing. It simply isnt designed to make you crack up like Kill Me Baby or Cromatrie High
>>
Pacing and making non-confusing scenes would help, everything doesnt need to be wacky all the time.
>>
>>133670835
>kill me baby
Kill Me Baby was boring as fuck, and very tryhard in its jokes of which 10% tops landed. And it wasn't visually very impressive either.

It baffles me how much this shit still gets posted compared to, let's say Nichibros from the same season. Though maybe it's just some reaction images that make it seems so much.
>>
>>133666241
Nice bait, here's your answer.
>>
>>133670835
>Kill Me Baby or Cromatrie High
I tried both shows and they were both low budget unfunny crap.
I have no clue why they are so overrated by some people.

>>133665950
Because it wasn't funny. Half the jokes were just over-the-top reactions, and that got old very fast.
>>
>>133673978
"It's a show that has GUYS instead of cute girls doing comedy skits, so fucking epic. And it has Wakamoto voicing a motorcycle, BEST ANIME EVER. Hey, noone notices how Mechazawa is actually a robot, and the joke fills an entire episode, so fucking great."

Is this how the brains of Cromartie fans work?
>>
>>133666241
shitposters like you need to be permanently banned
>>
>>133674062
The jokes themselves aren't bad. The manga tells the exact same ones, and they're funny there. The problem is that KyoAni botched the delivery on most of them. They took 4komas that you can read in 10 seconds and turned them into 5 minute scenes where you'll inevitably figure out the punchline well before it happens
>>
>>133665950
The only reason it flopped for me was that I found the side characters boring. I really only cared about Mio and Yuko antics and I found them funny.

Didn't give a shit about the professor, Nano, that tsundere, and whoever else. I remember feeling really bored when it focused too much on those side characters which must have happened a lot.

Fujos will spend money on unconventionally cute characters, otaku won't.

I think you more or less got it

But I think it's mostly fault of being pretty obvious and repetive despite that hurr random theme.
You know exactly that
Second thing I couldn't stand was that overreaction, just as annoying as shinpachi explaining jokes in Gintama, I feel as creators think that viewers are retarded

I'm not saying It's bad tho, as my non animey friend really loved that show. I guess It all comes to sense of humor
