Why ain't I laughing
>>
Cause its unfunny shit with forced animation.
>>
>>133948965
For the opposites of the reasons that I am
>>
I honestly thought half of it was fucking retarded but the other half was relatively funny.
>>
>>133949028
Mein coloured brother.
I also hate the flaunting of animation skills. Is like they are saying "Look at our skills, look how fluid and amazing we can animate". Fucking arrogance. I prefer the subtle touches in cartoons more, they use some great stills and yet achieve an more artistic edge, example Adventure Times and Gravity Fall. Anime is dead.
>>
>>133949028
It also has forced drama, forced characterizations, and a meme color scheme.

Unfunny shit with animation being forced.

I don't get it either.

Neither this nor Daily lives got more than a small chuckle out of me. Maybe I just don't get Japanese humor but I thought Cromartie was pretty funny. Even SoL anime with some comedic elements elicit more laughs than these "full" comedy anime.

It's probably the most hit-and-miss show I've seen other than Space Dandy. Half the jokes are great, half the jokes are terrible. Anything involving Nano and Hakase had me wishing the episodes were chaptered by skit so I could just skip them.
>>
>>133948965
Go watch Disney Channel instead, more fun comedy than you can get out of anime.
>>
>>133948965
It's not supposed to be outrageously funny, it's supposed to be one of the comfiest and most immersive SOLs ever made which is made all the better by its unique and artfully done art style. People who think everything has to be laugh-out-loud funny to be good have the mental age of a twelve year old. The humor is merely an excuse and framework for the surrealist, fantastical aesthetics to occur within. If you can't understand this, SOL obviously isn't the genre for you, and you would probably have more fun bashing it on /v/ than on a board that actually can appreciate it.

Let's see if I can help:

Unfortunate advanced case of shit taste, most likely.

Railgun ep 2 has way more lols than this in-joke of a show.

2/10, you had me at the beginning, but got way too obvious by the end.

>>133948965
Because honestly, Nichijou is like 5% really funny, 15% moderately funny, and 80% dull non-jokes or worse, filler "footage" of city spaces or serving counters or whatever.
>>
The way that Nichijou's hatebase holds it to a completely unique and inconsistent set of expectations and values when compared with other SOLs, almost all of which have some sort of structure ostensibly based around gags and comedy, makes me think they are inexplicably bitter people targeting a series arbitrarily, or that they are genuinely mentally impaired. Almost every modern SOL blends into the genre of comedy and has some sort of gag basis for the segmentation of its episodes, and yet the people who watch these other shows understand hat the comedy is not why they are watching it and do not judge its worth based on it. They judge it based on comfiness/cuteness/etc., with the jokes (which almost never make anyone laugh, probably even less often than the jokes in Nichijou do) being fully understood to be merely a vehicle through which the appealing qualities of the SOL genre can be portrayed. Which, again, makes me feel that those who repeatedly hate on Nichijou for the same memetic reasons must either be trolls or completely genre-retarded.
>>

>>133949855
>i-its good, really! you were just watching it the wrong way!
>>
Nichijou would have been a lot more entertaining if they cut the runtime by half, simply removing all the filler bits.
>>
>>133949967
>Implying the concept of "filler" is relevant to SOL in which no central plot exists
>>
>>133950223
It's relevant when every 3 minutes you get a 30-second to a minute long random scene of nothing happening.
>>
I started appreciated Nichijou when I stopped looking for a side-splitting comedy and enjoyed it as a light-hearted animation showcase.
>>
Cuz it sucked

>>133950302
Those scenes are exactly what made Nichijou great. Whimsy and charm are obviously foreign concepts to you.
>>
>>133950698
osomatsu san is better and the japanese agree aswell.
>>
>>133950698
>Scenes of an empty counter for a full fucking minute is what made Nichijou great

Right because watching paint dry is the height of comedic slice of life.

That's some grade A rationalization.

>this thread

>>133949453 said it all, Nichijou is not only about laughing non stop, there are a lot of comfy (some of the love-like skits are adorable) and surrealistic moments.
People who think it's only about comedy are just faggots who saw 3 videos on youtube.

This sums it up pretty well.
I'm pretty sure saying you hate it is just a meme by now and you know how /a/ is with memes these days.

I don't hate it at all. I just think the pacing's fucked which makes watching the whole thing very dull, despite the series having a lot of good moments.
>>
The only funny animes I've watched are d-frag, school rumble, and parts of nozaki-kun. That was actually jap comedy done right
>>
>>133952810

What the fuck, I didn't even add a picture to my post.

HIROSHIMAAAAAAAA

The show is called "Everyday". What exactly were you expecting?

They show everyday life in a charming and amusing way and then juxtapose that with over the top and ridiculous gags and scenarios.
>>
>>133948965
Only aspies find it funny.
>>
>>133953156
Nothing amusing about watching an empty counter for thirty seconds.
>>
>>133950364
The attempts at humour are offensively bad. I just want to punch my screen when they do their stupid fucking overreactions.
>>
The comedy is bottom of the barrel but everything else is good.

Recommend watching for production values alone. It deserved the shitty sales it got.
>>
>>133952810
>>133952879
That's an interesting glitch
Never seen this one before.

That's just another way of saying "lol so random xD"

>The comedy is bottom of the barrel but everything else is good.
But it's entire premise hinges on the comedy. I mean, this sentence just blows my mind.
>>
>>133949529
You make it sound like you're joking but I swear 60% of Nichijou's skits were exactly this.

what does this even mean?
>>
>>133956148
I don't know either. I mean if we were talking about SHAFT instead of KyoAni I'd get it.
>>
>>133952800
comedy is tragedy plus time, ergo they should be tragic, not funny
>>
I liked it better when it was called Pani Poni Dash
>>
>>133956148
It means in this case an overdose of animation to make up for weak jokes, or simply in scenes that didn't really need that level.

I like it in Nichijou a lot and it's high quality, but for a more relevant example, think the final episode of Monster Musume. It feels like they just went and said "let's blow the rest of our budget in unnecessary animated sequences and explosions and shit for no reason instead of simply making the characters look and move better".
>>
>>133949453
Okay, GochiUsa/Kiniro Mosaic/Hidamari Sketch/Gj-Bu!/K-On!/NNB are among my favorite animes/cartoons and I am generally sucker for SoL, but I just can't stand both Nichijou/Nichibros. It failed both as a SoL and as a comedy, though first 1-2 episodes of Nichibros were quite entertaining I have to admit.
