Synopsis of Nichijou
Nichijou focuses mainly on the daily clowns of a trio of childhood friends, Mio Naganohara High School Girls, Yuuko Aioi and Main Minakami, whose stories are intertwined with the young genius Hakase Shinonome, his nano caregiver robot and his cattle cat Sakamoto. With each day that passes, the lives of these six, as well as of the many people around them, experience so much calmness of normal life and the madness of the absurdity. Walking to school, being bitten by a talking raven, spending time with friends and seeing the director to make a suplex to a deer: everyone is in the work of a day at the extraordinary daily life of Nichijou.
