Why has it been so long since you have rewatched Nichijou?
Watching it for the first time now, something always comes up when I start. It's pretty solid.
It's clear to me some jokes just don't translate well, and it definitely relies on the ol' japanese tsukkomi reaction face schtick a lot. But it's still pretty solid.
Also I'm not really loving professor but I already had a conversation about that on /a/ and after about 6 people told me to kill myself one dude explains it gets better.
I love the art and the characters and the world. It's a very cozy show. The ED especially makes me feel all warm inside.
But it hasn't been; I just started it over again last week.
I rewatched it like a week ago.
all this filthy casuals who don't get the comedy make me sick
>not liking Hakase
what the ever-loving fuck?
Hakase is my favorite character
that's what makes her so funny, you dolt
are you too autistic for comedy?
>someone said an opinion contrary to my own
>this is impossible! he must be trolling!
Just finish it a couple of days ago, second season soon right?
How bad is it bad that like half of the helvetica standard's punch lines went over my head? A few jokes during normal episodes as well, or so I assume. Like the girl who finds a gun inside a book. I'm not sure I should be reading into that like I would with Shakespeare or just find it ironic that her long journey was for nothing.
I guess I'm not familiar enough with Japanese culture or whatever.
I'm thinking about it. Looks like there will be four volumes at 200 pages, will that cover all the chapters?
I've seen it at least 20 times. Not kidding, can quote most of the lines.
It's still fresh enough in my mind that I don't feel as if I need to re-watch it.
Even after all these years.
However I do listen to the soundtrack regularly as it's a big part part (relatively; approximately 5%) of this big playlist (1161 entries and growing) of assorted songs that i listen to when sleeping and/or just chilling out.
It's legitimately my favourite anime of all time.
>Stellar animation quality and directing
I look forward to the day where I forget about it enough to justify re-watching.
>tfw manga is over
I wish there had been more interaction between the groups of characters on this, it's literally like they're all in their own show. I think the only time gundere is in a scene with the 3 main girls is when Yuuko bumped into her by a vending machine and where Mio gets ntr'd and goes on her epic dash.
You could literally edit out all the separate scenes and have different shows with each group.
It hasn't been that long
Though I do look forward to rewatching it and not needing to take screen shots of it every five seconds
Would also like to watch it with muh [email protected]
I've rewatched it like 5 times.
Instead, when was the last time you watched Azumanga Daioh anons? I sure don't remember.
>when was the last time you watched Azumanga Daioh anons?
It's been a while, too long. Should definitely rewatch it this year. The ending always gets to me so I always put off watching it because I don't want to feel feels
What are their favorite foods?
Yukko mentions burgers in her character song, right?
I heard Mio likes Grilled Mackerel
Yuyushiki is good
i actually just watched it for the first time a couple weeks ago
How can she eat her boogers if she has no nose?
Check and mate, robotfags.
because its "comedy" is only a thing that japs would get.
80% of it is slapstick
20% of it is deeply cultural
it's japanese Chavo del Ocho
and even an alien would laugh at chavo
Just re-watched it
I remember being directed to it by a friend who said it was like Cromartie Highschool (Wow, no, not at all). It was cute, but the comedy wasn't that amazing, it was Nano that really kept me watching.
I didn't laugh at this skit. Can someone explain the Japanese cultural reference so I might get it?
I just couldn't get into the humor of it. The animation and the art style is nice and I'm no stranger to Japanese comedy but this show just didn't click with me.
Til this day I am still trying to work out what so funny about "Selamat Pagi" or why the statue being put in some teaches locker had /a/nons splitting their sides I lose sleep trying to work it out.
That's not what's funny.
>or why the statue being put in some teaches locker
That's not what's funny.
>inb4 "then what was supposed to be funny?"
Explaining a joke won't make you laugh at it.
I hope you're not implying Nichijou's humor is deeper than it actually is. I'm pretty sure they were trying to be funny by having Yuuko repeat something over and over again with the pay off being Mai responding to it, same deal with the statue they mentioned a very specific statue could have been anything was the pay off the lolsorandom guy on the goat?
Don't even get me started on the scene where Yuuko tried to catch food dramatically.
Not him but I found plenty of Nichijou's humor are follow ups. For example the last scene of the last episode iirc was a direct follow up of the very first scene in episode 1. Selamat pagi and many other jokes and skits follow the same dynamic.
I see the constant presence of Japanese cultural trinkets just as something to give the series a consistent personality. Unless I really am oblivious, they're not required for the joke and the lost-in-translation excuse is just an excuse.
Like in the first episode when Yuuko gets hit by a kokeshi, akabeko, and a salmon steak, would the joke have been funnier to Americans if those objects were replaced with a Glock, a Bible, and a raw ground beef patty? Possibly, but it's still randumb.
It's not that it's deeper. It that you're thinking the humor is in all of the wrong places. It's like being told a knock-knock joke, and thinking you're supposed to laugh at the fact that the person didn't just ring the doorbell.
