From the creator of Nichijou comes a new slapstick comedy series about a penniless college student who moves to a town filled with bizarre people. This reckless girl will be the one who eventually sets the city in motion.
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.
