Is Nichijou entry level anime? I'm arguing with someone right now, and he's saying Jojos Bizarre Adventure is. What qualifies entry level anime?

Entry-level anime in my opinion is a show that has easy to digest content (stories that aren't heavily engraved in Japanese culture for example would be easier to digest for an outsider).

Shows with less Japanese pun jokes or "EEEEEEEEHHHHH?!" would be more entry level.

Charles Turner

so out of SoL anime, nichijou would be out (non-western humor style), as would lucky star (too many references to other media)

so from that genre, "entry-level" would probably be azumanga or yuru yuri or something

Logan Collins
Logan Collins

I'd say they're pretty close actually and wouldn't bother to differentiate between the two in that way. Nichijou is just for bitch ass faggots and Jojo is for gar bara men.

Nichijou is pretty high up there on the 'You must be this Japanese to get this joke' scale.

Nothing beats Joshiraku, though.

Nichijou was my re-entry point for anime, and was the entry for a lot of my friends. I know it doesn't seem it because of the obscure humor but I think the lack of lewd fanservice and the good animation makes people respect anime more when they watch Nichijou.

Samuel Ward
Samuel Ward

Nichijou is one of the most beloved anime.

Joshiraku is more on the non-western scale just for the fact that translating some of the jokes is almost impossible.

Caleb Allen

There's more than enough physical comedy that would get through.

Sebastian Collins

Nichijou has a truly japenese style of humor with their jokes.
Something more objective/easy to understand and western styled like Panty & Stocking are FAR more "entry level" (aka accessible to normies).

Entry level is such a shitty concept. Just let people watch what they find interesting.

Evan Young

It's irrelevant on the level of the individual show, but it becomes less shitty of a concept when someone's top ten are all popular shows with heavy Western influences.

Jason Morales

Neither Nichijou or Jojo are entry level.

Entry level moe SoL would be Azumanga or K-ON.

Entry level battleshonen would be Naruto.

Sebastian Rodriguez
Sebastian Rodriguez

Actually, now that I think of it, no moe SoL is entry-level. Moe is pretty much by definition not entry level, but rather tends to appeal much more to people with high power levels.

Robert Ramirez

Nichijou was one of the first anime I really enjoyed. As I started watching more anime, my opinion of Nichijou started to diminish a little but I still think it's pretty good. Other shows require more of a taste for anime and a more generous attitude towards the different things that tend to put other people off (like the fanservice, for instance, which is practically nonexistent in Nichijou).

I like Nichijou a lot, but I used to like it a lot more than I do now, and I think shows like Aria and Yuyushiki are far better in terms of pure slice-of-life, but also very far from being "entry level" just because of accessibility.

Remember not to confuse "entry level" with "low quality," not the same thing at all.

Jayden Barnes

Maybe it's more appropriate to call someone's taste or knowledge entry level, rather than a particular show?
You can have watched an obscure mecha OVA from 1978, but if you don't know what a tsukkomi or Ultraman is, you're entry-level as fuck.

Most people either watch Naruto, Bleach or Sword Art Online, and maybe they've watched Attack on Titan too.

What qualifies entry level anime?
Its popular with the Toonami/Adult Swim/dub crowd. So no, Nichijou isn't entry level as most people who only watch dubbed anime have never seen it. But it is one step above entry level. Since its loved by the type of people who just got into watching subbed anime.

Hey user
Nearly any show can be entry level
I've got friends into anime through Non Non Biyori, I've got friends into anime through Jojo's, I've got friends into anime through Lain.
Generally speaking, if it's a good show, it's entry level for people who enjoy that sort of genre.
This includes Nichijou for comedy.

Lucas Lee
Lucas Lee

not exactly entry-level but it's still close to the tip of the iceberg. I'd say it's whatever level comes after entry level.

Isaac Howard

It probably means that they haven't gotten into anime much and are just occasionally watching stuff recommended by their friends that seems similar to their Western series. I mean, they're free to watch what they like, but I'd rather they kept out of anime communities if they're only going to watch the OPMs and Parasytes.

Ethan White

Any show is good, so long as it doesn't conform to western stereotypes of anime. Best to stay away from kill la kill and anything ecchi. You want to make them see the medium as a medium, not as thinly concealed porn.

the whole point of KLK is how rapidly you're completely desensitized to fanservice, given the absurd spectacle of it. it's a comedy first and foremost

Aaron Collins
Aaron Collins

Entry level doesn't mean bad.
It means easy to find, easy to get in to, and generally can be enjoyed by most people. Many are considered a ''must watch'', even if they're not very good. Some are classics, some are trainwrecks (Code Geass is entry level, for example).

Oliver Carter

Christopher White

This.

Most of the 6-7/10s who claim to like anime have only watched the REAL entry level stuff like Bebop, Trigun, FMA, Space Dandy, and Sword Art. Every now and then there will be a show that reaches meme status and they'll watch it before it's dubbed like Attack on Titan, Kill La Kill, and One Punch Man.

Aiden Rodriguez

space dandy isn't anywhere near as well-known as the others you brought up

Brandon Hernandez

Entry level anime are easy to digest, and pretty much bereft of a Japanese feeling. I don't know how to explain *it* exactly, but if you took an entry level show and dubbed it, little would be lost from the shows original tone.

No, nigger, you can have terrible taste without being entry level. But someone who picks up a show every two months when they hear about it on Facebook is not into anime, this shouldn't be fucking controversial.

They're both entry level as fuck. Nichjiou basically replaced Cromartie as the entry level comedy.
And Jojo is pretty fucking popular to a point that people that "don't normally watch anime" and only watch shit like attack on titan still watch Jojo.

Technically, Nichijou isn't entry level due to its heavy use Japanese style comedy. Some may get through while other stuff may be lost with foreign audiences, but the animation quality, art style and character personalities is enough to classify it. I don't really care about Jojo, but seeing as /v/ creams themselves over it, I say it's entry level by default.

Grayson Gonzalez
Grayson Gonzalez

This. The only entry tier anime are anime that dumbasses on /v/ or other online communities find "acceptable", anime that you wouldn't get instantly called out for being weebs. Those are. SAO, DBZ, Naruto, Bleach and OP, even Deah Note. AoT may be one but it isn't as known

JJBA is entry level in Japan or Europe sure but it's still only just now getting really popular in English speaking countries, so I wouldn't call it quite entry level yet though it'll get there. Like others have said Nichijou is too Japanese to be entry level either. That said neither of them are particularly on the deep end of anime and manga.

Charles Miller

Pretty much every show that got a dub is entry level. A lot of shows that could be shown to anyone and they would like it (like Kaiji) could be considered entry level.

Jordan Taylor
Jordan Taylor

If the medium uses a light spectrum visible to those with less than 1000 hours of anime, it is possible that some poor fool could watch it as his/her first anime, and therefore it is entry level

People like you are why some phrases are losing meaning.

Grayson Morales
Grayson Morales

Nichijou is actually pretty popular with entry level watchers.
Sup Forums is about the only place that shits on it.

Nathaniel Roberts
Nathaniel Roberts

It depends, they're both borderline. Jojo's is definitely more entry-level.
Entry level is shows you could watch having never seen anything Japanese and enjoy, or feel heavily "culture shocked". As an insult, it means things that newcomers will enjoy despite being shit. So, the perfect example of an "entry level" show would be Cowboy Bebop. It wouldn't be wrong to call, say, Elfen Lied (or higurashi a few years ago) "entry level shit".

no, stuff like cowboy bebop, akira, dragonball, even naruto and bleach; these are all "entry level" because they require very little understanding of japanese culture and topes

JJBA isn't entry level, because most people take one look at it, call it gay, and then never actually watch it

That would mean is just a bad show in general but not that is far from being an entry level anime. JJBA is one of the most entry lvl anime because of popularity and easy to get to non existent references on it, so you dont need to see more shows from the same studio to understand it. Also theres a lot of normalfag memes with jojos references.

I bet you consider shounen trash top tier.
