Description

From the creator of nichijou, this surreal-slapstick series revolves around a penniless college student, Midori Nagumo, who lives in an ordinary city filled with not-quite-ordinary people. And as this reckless girl runs about, she sets the city in motion.

Midori is in a bit of a bind. She is in debt, and her landlady is trying to shake her down for unpaid rent. Her best friend refuses to loan her cash since she’s wised up to her tricks.

Maybe some bullying would help. Or a bit of petty theft? Neither is sustainable. Maybe getting a job would settle things... But working means less time for fun adventures in the big city...


About the Author

Keiichi Arawi (1977-) is a professional comic artist and illustrator. Originally from Gunma, Japan, he was raised in the city of Maebashi. By the time he was 19 he entered the world of comics drawing short stories for Media Factory's Comic Flapper (My Neighbor Seki, 7 Billion Needles). While his first series KazeMachi was short-lived it caught the attention of one of the bigger publishers in Japan, Kadokawa Publishing.

His short "Nichijou" won Kadokawa's 22nd ACE Award for New Artists and by November 2006 Nichijou was regularly serialized in Kadokawa's flagship magazine Shonen Ace. Nichijou has since then sold more than a million copies and has seen cartoon and video game adaptations.
