Nichijou – 26 (END)

「日常26」 (Nichijou 26)
“My Ordinary Life 26″

It takes something special to give a series a good ending episode — especially for series longer than one-cour and this last episode of Nichijou didn’t just push the envelope. It stared at that envelope, ripped it in half, ate the pieces, and then lit itself on fire in order to make sure that there was no trace of an envelope.

Really Kyoani, really? Spending the first half of the episode on two (technically one extended) skits? I’ll have to say that if you were planning on closing this series with some sort of bang, you’ve set the bar pretty high.

Sometimes I like to think that KyoAni might actually read RandomC. Since every time I gripe about something, the exact opposite occurs the week after. Which would mean that this week’s Nichijou was awesome.

Hey, it’s another episode with a lot of focus on side characters!

It’s been a while since we had an episode that focused on mostly side characters, but this one was a lot more entertaining than the past ones. I’m not sure who the current director of the show is, but I’m glad that Nichijou has stopped throwing side characters into ridiculously random situations; instead, going for the more slice of life situations with the right kinds of random thrown in.

I think this is the first time Nichijou has spent so much time on one skit.

Weboshi and Fecchan finally make a second appearance! Even though they’re secondary or rather third tier characters, Fecchan was just too cute in that small amount of time allotted to her skit. Running and tripping in the rain, pouting when she got her clothes all dirty, it was just too damn cute.

As much as I feel for Yukko and her horrible experience at Starbucks Daiku coffee, I was completely floored when her plans backfired on her. The moment I realized that she was trying to setup Mio; I had this feeling in the pit of my stomach that it was going to go completely awry.

Even when he’s voicing something as simple as a crow, Ono Daisuke’s charm never fails to spill out of his character. By charm, I’m referring to this condescending feeling you get when someone tries way too hard to be polite and ends up getting on your nerves.

You want to know why Nichijou is such an amazing show? It’s not because the jokes are funny or the characters are memorable. It’s the fact that even though it’s labeled as a comedy/slice of life, it manages to pull off serious, emotional, and near tear jerking moments in the span of seconds. But because you’re watching a comedy, these moments hit you so hard and so fast that you don’t even have the chance to scratch your itchy eyes.

There’s just absolutely no reason that anyone could possibly think that Nano might even remotely be a robot. Besides the fact that she has a screw sticking out of her back, popcorn gun in one hand, chikuwa in the other, and a bird coming out of her head, it’s ridiculous that anyone might even consider the thought that she might be a robot.

I never thought that Hyadain’s Kataomoi could be topped but I never considered that Hyadain might be able to top HIMSELF.

It seems that the best time for the worst things to happen only occur on those days that seem just a little too perfect. So on a really nice sunny day, it’s not too surprising that Yuuko manages to somehow forget the precious worksheet that she actually finished.
