My Ordinary Life (2011) IMDb


Comedy, based on the Azumanga Daioh (2002) variety of high-school comedy: female-centric and tied to gilded everyday life concerns and pacing, what Japanese fans call nichij┼Źkei. This one branches out in all directions. There is SF, action and romantic comedy, and moments that could in fact happen in everyday life. Despite this great variety, metafiction is kept well below Pani Poni Dash! (2005) levels.


Modern Japan. In a group of three friends, one is a blank-faced carver of Buddhist miniatures, one secretly authors BL manga, and the third is basically Yomi.


Less consistently funny than Azumanga Daioh, and less endearing as a result of its wild leaps, but many of the jokes are excellent and the dull parts are not very dull.
