Classroom Clowning Seki creates a new twist on a board game, crafts his own version of a jack-in-the-box, and invents a machine that recycles eraser scraps that ends up being a little too perfectly entertaining. But Yokoi discovers that the most distracting game of all involves toys that are completely invisible!
Holiday Hijinks Seki Claus doesn’t care if you are naughty or nice, cause he’ll be making a stop in his classroom to quietly make reindeer games. But if Rumi Yokoi gets her holiday wish he might get caught in the process.
From Keiichi Arawi, the creator of hit series nichijou! The big day is finally here: The 4th Local City Race is upon us! Eight pairs will enter, each more absurd and unexpected than the last, but only one will emerge victorious to claim the 1-million-yen prize. All of CITY's heavy hitters are here: Nagumo, Granny, Dr. Adatara, the Self-Proclaimed Quiz King... Wait, what?! Who even is that??! And why weren't the rest of us allowed to enter???! The scattershot charm of Keiichi Arawi's masterpiece comes together with laser focus to bring you the biggest, craziest, funniest volume of CITY yet!
Yokoi can’t seem to stop Seki’s increasingly creative contraptions from grabbing her attention and making her own imagination wander away in the middle of class. And at one point, Yokoi find herself in a very unexpected place indeed...
While the title (which translates as 'ordinary' or 'everyday' suggests a story of simple, everyday school life, the contents are more the opposite. Set in a strange school where you may see the principal wrestle a deer, or a robot hide the school lunches, the days that unfold in Nichijou are curious and hilarious, if not downright bizarre. However amidst all the chaos and comedy Arawi still takes time to share everyday slice of life stories giving readers an insight into modern Japanese youth culture.
