KyoAni’s Next Moeblob Anime Unveiled


The newly unveiled preview of Kyoto Animation’s next moeblob anime “Nichijou” (“Everyday”) seems to suggest it may finally be the end of their moe-induced winning streak.

As one less than impressed viewer has it “If this sells KyoAni will need to be recognised as a new religion.”

Fortunately for Kyoto Animation’s prestigious reputation, the anime itself is merely an OVA bundled with volume 6 of the manga, due in March 2011.

    My motto's similar. I watch anything, so long as it's entertaining for me to watch.

    I don't tend to judge anime/manga till I get a better understanding of things, so I will say this anime may be good.

    it will be, but it wont be for everyone, of that i know for a fact. even if it wasnt moe style the humor is either you get it, or you wtf hate it, there is little middle ground with this one.

    I have nothing against moe... or random comedy... or slice of life but this looks way too uninteresting for me. And I don't like the art style much, unique and kind of cute but again, seems too uninteresting.
    Well, my want to watch list is too long anyway. ^^"
    I'm curious about reviews when this'll come out though.

    The premise of K-ON is uninteresting too, but that didn't stop them selling 1million dvds + blu-rays and spawning two seasons.

    Well, that's the reason I didn't watch K-ON in the first place. Because I was not interested in the story at all. But then I started to play an musical instrument and my point of view on this series changed a bit. However, the new show seems like nothing I could relate to.
    But it's hard to tell after one minute of trailer, I admit.

    yeah, I think K-ON!! is actually relevant to people who play instruments or know people in bands. which gives it this weird crossover appeal with Beck (and for some reason I liked Beck a lot more before I realized it's like DBZ but instead of punching each other it's like can koyuki outsing so-and-so or draw a bigger crowd. It's still got its strong points though.)

    While I like K-ON for what it is, you think all that expensive super-quality Blu-Ray versions and other expensive merchandise would sell if it wasn't for the creepier segment of otakus who care mostly about the girls and not really the trivial jokes and the lighthearted laughs they can give you?

    5 girls in a band having fun every day, sounds like a fairly good premise to me, and it was pulled off nicely, manga and anime.

    anyone who uses the word "moeblob" is just incapable of seeing young girls as people instead of sexual objects. K-on and lucky star were very funny and I don't know any female who watched but didn't like either of them.

    Since when "moeblob" became the new word for "slice-of-life" ?

    And the character design and coloring are way too simple for being considered as 'moe'

    Give people a break with the trolling already. If they had changed the chara-design into some Haruhi/K-on ripoff (like what happened to SoRaNoWoTo) I would agree, but that's definitely not the case here.

    because it's the studios' fault, they made it like they have to infuse everything with moe these days

    K-On! was your usual "slice-of-life" 4koma manga with your usual joshikousei characters and simple design
    then KyoAni came, and made Yui retarded

    anime studios should really stop these moefications

    another case : Mayoi Neko was a touching light novel. it was the first time I cried by reading blocks of kana and kanji
    but, the anime.... let's just say I stopped watching halfway through the first episode. thank God I found it before it got animated. otherwise I'd diss it as just another moeblob trash

    and the worst part is, they're starting to infect their original works. I still haven't got the will to buy K-On volume 4, and Mayoi Neko became unbearable past volume 6

    I sold almost all of my manga before leaving Japan, but I loved Nichijou. I still remember some scenes. if it stays simple, fine. if not, i'm not gonna buy it. i hope they also offer non-bundled standard edition

    It can be difficult to get over with since they've been successively producing the same kind of shit during these few years(since Kanon in 2007. 3 years to be exact). If they just pick up and continue from existing series, I don't think anyone would have any reason to get annoyed.

    If we are to take Nichijou too, this will be the 5th moe-themed series they produced CONSECUTIVELY.

    Personally, I'd rather see them get on with Lucky Star season 2 already(Aya Hirano forgiveness imminent, lol) and Full Metal Panic, but what I feel matters jack.

    I really don't understand why there's so much negative reaction for this. I don't see the problem in having another moe anime. Yes, I do like this genre, and I do believe that most of the stuff out there is crap, but people are already assuming this'll be a bad anime. But I can't really say anything, to be honest. After all, I always have a similar reaction towards pretty much every shonen anime out there.

    That's right, I prefer cuteness and nice characters over plot. That is, I do enjoy a nice plot every now and then, but I'd rather watch something with nice characters that I can have fun with.

    I think your statement is a bit strong. It doesn't seem to me like "everybody hated it." Here on SC, it looks like people are more than willing to at least try it from the comments I've read.
    However, what's wrong with not liking something anyway? It doesn't necessarilly have to mean that the "hate" is connected with KyoAni as such. As for me, I liked some things made by this studio and some not. But this show looks boring to me - from the trailer that is. However, I didn't read manga so what can I really know. But I don't say it couldn't be actually good, because one minute of trailer really proves nothing.

    In order for Kyo-Ani to milk more money, they should animate the Full Metal Panic:Fumoffu second season. I miss the antics of Sousuke and Chidori (Yes ignore the Full Metal Panic 3)

    Stop wishing for things you want Kyoani to do. They fully know what they're doing and that's why they're successful.

    Well.. tastes differ. Canaan was THE SHIT.. in a bad way. Too emotional,...

    ...also, I like super strong characters. Preferably strong enough to never actually care for whom they are up against. Like.. a superhero without the supervillains. Who needs power balance and emotional confused characters in action anime? Reminds me of all the gundam anime I've seen. Stupid world peace endings are stupid. Seed could have gone all the way in obliterating humankind, but noooo.

    That was me. I'm strongly against mecha and gun based anime. It's very hard to do entertainingly (like canon, for example. guns, not mecha) so I hate most of it.
    FMP had those two stories, the relationship which never went pass the typical clumsy guy and tsukomi girl, and the other story was a war which no one cared about. lead character had no weakness except social ineptness, again, not particularly hard to find in anime.
    What should I like about it?

    Sagara and Chidori of course. The rest wasn't exactly funny, but two are enough if they get lots of screentime. The first season also wasn't really all that entertaining, but the the second raid and fumoffu made up for that.

    You guys just confuse FMP with FMA: Brotherhood.
    Full Metal Panic is that awesome anime with a teen soldier switching between school an war in some desert, while full metal alchemist: brotherhood is a crappy anime based on some shitty manga, that once had an awesome adaption, which told it's own story and didn't adapt all the shitty comical reliefs and stupid shounen moments.

    no, fmp was that shit mecha anime with no real story, dull humour and one likeable character.
