Meant to ask - is Nichijou even worth watching?
Could you repeat the question?
Nichijou or Yuru Yuri
Personally I think it's the second best thing KyoAni was able to produce in recent years (Hyouka is first, if you are wondering).
It depends on what are your priorities. The animation is flawless, not so much the jokes.
It's mostly hit or miss comedy. Actually I really hated the part of the show (episodes 3-15 if I remember correctly), that was composed mostly of "moe" Nano/Hakase interactions. After that the comedy showed up again I loved it again.
Again, it depends on your tastes. I know there are many people that loved the parts I hated and vice versa. I would give it a solid 8/10.
Nichijou because the humor isn't nearly as repetitive and the animation is both higher quality and more exciting.
All I want is sometihng laid back to chill out to when I can't sleep
I dropped it after episode 4.
It's not really laid-back comedy.
What's a good laid back slice of life that isn't keon then
It's worth trying. I found some of it painfully unfunny but overall I'm glad that I watched it. I'm still in love with Mai, she was a great character.

I'll check them out, thanks. Trying Nichijou anyways. Night guys.
Imagine an uncle you just met is telling you lots of jokes. You are trying so hard to laugh or smile out of politeness but he rarely makes you truly smile. Now imagine stretching that experience over 26 episodes. That is Nichijou.
Things we think are cool.
Imagine if your uncle was actually a girl and a also robot. That is Nichijou.
THINGS WE THINK ARE COOL!
Oh! Cutting a camel's throat open!
