It’s been six long years since we got any new Nichijou manga chapters, but that’s about to change. Series creator Keiichi Arawi announced plans for a return, lining the series up for a comeback in the pages of Monthly Shonen Ace magazine on October 26.
It seems Arawi simply felt like drawing the manga again, hence the return. The series originally kicked off in Ace in 2006, and was collected in 10 volumes, all of which have been put put in English through Vertical Comics. Kyoto Animation and director Tatsuya Ishihara (Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid S) handled the acclaimed anime, which is described like so:
Follow the adventures of three ordinary girls as they learn their most important lessons the hard way. Meanwhile, a pocket-sized professor makes life difficult for a robot who just wants to be normal. But normal is the last thing you can expect in a town where salmon falls from the sky. In fact, the only thing you can count on is your friends, but even they are totally weird.
Arawi whipped up a special illustration to celebrate the news of the return:
