The media distribution site Crunchyroll announced on Tuesday that it will simulcast the animated adaptation of Keiichi Arawi's Nichijou comedy manga under the name My Ordinary Life. Premium members can see the anime 30 minutes after its Japanese broadcast every Saturday at 9:00 p.m. PST. The anime will be available in North America, South America, United Kingdom, Ireland, Finland, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Iceland, Netherlands, Portugal, Middle East, and Africa.
Kadokawa Shoten's Monthly Shōnen Ace magazine announced that Kyoto Animation would adapt Arawi's manga this past May, also revealing that an "episode 0" of the anime would be bundled with the manga's sixth volume. The series revolves around a group of female students living what would be a normal high school life, except that it also includes talking cats, robots, deer-wrestling, and other strange anomalies.
The series was one of several revealed earlier this month by Crunchyroll's application for the iPhone and iPad under its "Manage Notifications" feature.
