Nichijou (English: My Ordinary Life) is an absurdist manga series that was adapted into an anime during the summer and fall of 2011 by the trolls at Kyoto Animation. It has become famous for its combination of ordinary characters doing surreal things and extraordinary characters doing mundane things.
While the title suggests a story of simple, everyday school life, the contents are more the opposite. The setting is a strange school where you may see the principal wrestle a deer or a robot's arm hide a rollcake. However there are still normal stories, like making a card castle or taking a test you didn't study for.
