Nichijou NHK-E Episode Composition

Last last year, the television station NHK announced that they were planning to air a revised version of the anime show Nichijou on their educational stations throughout Japan. They aired this revised version of the show from 2012/01/07 to 2012/03/24 and it was in such high demand that they re-aired it in June. Now, this version of the show has been listed to be released as a “Director’s Cut” version DVD-BOX. I’ve not seen anyone detail about how the series was re-organized, so I thought a post detailing the segments would be a good reference. I’m citing the information from Shinkai’s blog and have taken screencaps from Random Curiosity (I watched via Crunchyroll, so I have no way to take screencaps).

I’m debating importing the DVD-Box, so you might look for me to review it in December once I have some free time after a busy semester. I admit, it was fun reflecting on Nichijou as I gathered the information for this post. Hope it’s interesting and provides a source for anyone curious about the re-making of the series into only 12 episodes.

  1. Wow, this is very interesting! I had heard that Nichijou was aired more than once, but I didn’t realize they did some kind of crazy random order jumble mish-mash dilapidated version for the reruns. (Which, of course, is probably fitting for Nichijou.)

    But wait–there’s some UNAIRED SKITS?! I must see these. o_o

    • It’s not only fitting, but it more resembles the original source with the randomness. They took almost all the strong segments and made (in my opinion) a better show. This could’ve sold very well on 6 BD/DVD volumes. The un-aired skits were typically added for the BD/DVD releases, so check for subs of those if you’d like to see them (or import the box since no one posted NHK raws).
