Last month, it was teased that a big announcement for Keiichi Arawi’s Nichijou (My Ordinary Life) manga will be revealed in the August issue of Kadokawa Shoten’s Monthly Shonen Ace magazine. Now that the issue is out, the big announcement was for a special limited edition release of the manga’s next volume.
The upcoming volume of the Nichijou manga will be the 10th volume, which will be celebrating the 10th anniversary of the manga. Releasing on December 10 this year, the limited edition version of the manga will contain the volume and a special sleeve containing a 120 page booklet. It will contain various strips that did not make it into the volumes and various scenes chosen by Arawi.
Here is the promotional video of the 2011 anime adaptation:
Nichijou (My Ordinary Life) is a comedy manga written and illustrated by Keiichi Arawi. The series began its publication in Kadokawa Shoten’s Monthly Shonen Ace in 2006 where to date a total of 9 compiled volumes have been published. The series received an anime adaptation in 2011 directed by Tatsuya Ishihara (The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, Clannad) and animated by Kyoto Animation (The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, K-ON!). Animation Director Shunji Suzuki spoke out saying that the Blu-ray and DVD sales of the anime have not met expectations.
Here is the synopsis of the series from MAL:
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.
The 10th anniversary volume of Nichijou will release on December 10th, with a limited edition containing a special 120 page booklet. No additional information about further anime adaptations have been revealed.
