Sweet Ann in My Ordinary Life

Sweet Ann sings "Helvetica Standard" in the anime Nichijou.

The anime Nichijou, translated “My Ordinary Life”, recently featured the Engloid Sweet Ann prominently in its “bumps”, short video segments separating a show from its commercial break, and backing track.

Outside of LOLA being used in the Paprika Soundtrack by Susumu Hirasawa (which I have issues pinpointing through all the effects) this is probably the most prominent usage of an Engloid in a Japanese Anime yet.

Beyond just featuring Sweet Ann this series has some awesome music. It’s second OP titled “Hyadain no Joujou Yuujou” is by Hyadain (Kenichi Maeyamada) of NicoNicoDouga fame. If you haven’t already definately check out his NicoNico Tribute Video titled “Me, Myself, and NicoNicoDouga”.

Did I mention the series is quite funny as well?

Watch the anime via Crunchyroll
