Travis Bruno of Capsule Computers writes:
"While some series are created originally, most anime series are adaptations of either a manga, light novel or visual novel. Of these adaptations 4koma style manga, manga that focus on short four panel gags with usually little focus on storyline, only receive anime adaptations every few years or are given simple five minute episodes. Even rarer is a release of one of these 4koma adaptations in the West, but that is the case with Daily Lives of High School Boys. Does NIS America’s risk of bringing such a uniquely styled series to North America pay off?"
