Nichijou - "Regular Life"

[Source: Wikipedia] Nichijou (lit. Regular Life) is a Japanese comedy manga by Keiichi Arawi. The manga began serialization in the December 2006 issue of Kadokawa Shoten's manga magazine Sh┼Źnen Ace, and was also serialized in Comptiq between the March 2007 and July 2008 issues. A 26-episode anime adaptation by Kyoto Animation aired in Japan between April and September 2011. A PlayStation Portable game by Vridge and Kadokawa Games was released in July 2011. The manga and anime series were initially licensed in North America by Bandai Entertainment but both releases have been cancelled. The anime series has been licensed by Madman Entertainment for Australian distribution.

The series follows the lives of a group of high school students and their school. Various oddities and absurdities abound, such as a robotic girl made by a scientist who is an eight-year-old girl, a boy who rides a goat to school with his butler, a girl who can procure various guns out of thin air, a cat that can speak and a principal who has wrestled a deer. Despite its bizarre settings and characters, the students still lead normal lives.

    Nichijou is just one of those animes that I want to finish one of these days but just can never get myself to do it. Same goes with Lucky Star.
