Sakamoto and Nano weren't the focus.
Production costs that where too high for something with no installed fanbase
Actually almost all "otaku" anime air at a very late timeslot. Timeslots do not necessarily predict which flop and which don't. K-On was too but that sold a lot.
>mfw the japanese have absolute garbage taste
tried too fucking hard to be funny, literally all the jokes are screaming in your face saying "PLEASE LAFFFF OH MY FUCKING GOD PLEASEEEEEEEEEE" so it kinda makes it incredibly unfunny.
>Is there a show that's more fun that Nichijou?
That's his point. K-On had sexy ass girls with sexy ass bodies and cute fuckable faces which is exactly what the late night audience wants.
What the late night audience does NOT want is a nearly family-tier anime with character designs that give all the characters, even teachers, very similar and non-sexual bodies. Otakus want to masturbate, not laugh. ANIME
>Isn't it the same for all slice of life?
somewhat, all slice of life don't revolve completely around forced comedy like nichijou if that's what you're saying. there's this thing called comedic timing that most comedy anime use, nichijou fucks up by being nonstop jokes and i'd say 80% of those jokes are just characters overreacting to things.
>K-On had sexy ass girls with sexy ass bodies and cute fuckable faces
Nothing honestly except for the Professor taking more screentime than she was worth. I was pretty sick of her 3/4 of the way through the show.
Otherwise it's failure is due to Japan having pretty awful taste in almost any medium. Nichijou doesn't pander to otaku swine by having the obligatory swimsuit or beach episode and sexualizing its cast. Almost every anime or manga has to sell out and sexualize its cast, whether the show takes itself seriously or not.
I just love when a show presents itself as "This is a show about CHARACTERS and STORY" and they can't have enough faith in their audience to pay attention without some titties on screen every 30 minutes or so.
Japanese people seem to have short attention spans, just look at how much shit they have to plaster on the screen in normal TV programs and all the ugly fonts. If there isn't a bunch of shit on the screen Japanese people might lose interest.
>K-On had sexy ass girls with sexy ass bodies
They were all pretty plain honestly. Also their bodies were typically covered up by their very plain school uniforms.
>cute and fuckable faces
They all looked quite similar to one another. Not so that you couldn't possibly tell them apart, but at a glance I can't ever really remember who's who besides maybe the short girl with the pigtails.
It's probably because your average Jap is dead inside.
See pic related.
>They were all pretty plain
Are you kidding? I would pound them all until they prolapse and look like exploded hot pockets. I would hammer that shit so hard Thor would stop by and tell me to knock that shit off. I would hit it so hard the aftershocks would cause California to break off and sink into the ocean. Anyone who could pull me out of those fine asses would be proclaimed the next king of England. I would breed them so furiously and frequently that Mugi would be carrying my offspring in some kind of faux uterus gifted by the spirits themselves. I would plow those fields with such vigor that every Amish on the planet would build me a barn out of respect. Attila the Hun, Genghis Khan, Tamerlane, and Alexander the Great would all rise from the dead and tell me to chill the fuck out because I'd be fucking my wives way too hard.
>mfw Nishitjou fags are eternally butthurt that Japan didn't give a fuck about their garbage unfunny show
Always funny to see them throw a tantrum here. Keep crying, bitch nigga.
It was alright, a feel-good show.
I'm kinda glad they put a whole lot of money in the animation, it's animated really well but sadly it made the show super expensive.
Nichijou is literally the best anime of the decade so far, and one of the best Kyoani's ever made. It was a nearly-perfect SOL in what matters: atmosphere, art style and quality, and engaging characters and interactions. Inb4 "hurr it didn't make me laugh out loud le randum meme xDD"
