I actually lol’d. I started out thinking this would be a slice-of-life about a robot girl trying to be an idol, then suddenly there is a girl running away with 19 billion yen. They got Kikuko Inoue to sing the song “Endless Seventeen” as well. It’s terrible. In a good way. There are a lot of shorter gag anime around lately, but this does well when lined up with them. I was thinking that this would just be filled with cliches, but I underestimated this… It’s not clear if they will be able to continue this for more episodes, but definitely check it out if you have time. This might be off topic, but the ED animations made me feel the progress of technology – it would probably look great in 4K.

I thought I had heard of Miss Monochrome before, but it was a character that had appeared before in a Yui Horie live before.

This anime had plenty of gag comedy material for about 3 minutes. The tempo was good, and I enjoyed that it went destroyed the idea of the 1st episode!

It started somewhat seriously, but ended up being a complete gag comedy anime!
The beautiful android main character decides to become an idol, then gets her money stolen and her house repossessed, then meets a manager and starts working at a convenience store…It just keeps coming one after another! You probably didn’t understand what just happened, but I don’t either so don’t worry!

This anime might be more of a surreal gag comedy, inviting viewers to poke fun at it. From the ED animation, maybe she ends up becoming a Vocaloid-style idol? Wh…whaaaa!?

An anime based on ideas and characters designed by Yui Horie. The content was a super plot-twist-filled gag comedy anime! Each episode is less than 5 minutes, so you could probably just power through the episodes in a sitting. The pretty CG animation for the ED is a must see as well, since she moves just like an idol would.

Character designs by Yui Horie, main character voiced by Yui Horie, it’s a Yui Horie anime! I could feel a lot of power behind the short episode. The tempo was good and I really enjoyed the way the jokes moved along, so this is probably an anime that I will watch to the end. The episode itself was good, but the ED was great! The quality was high enough that I was mesmerized, and I really want to go to the house of someone with a huge TV and demand they let me watch the anime there. I’m looking forward to what happens in the next episodes!

From old to new, I’m watching all kinds of anime. Robot, special powers, love, slice-of-life, I will eat anything! My favorites are “Saint Seiya,” “Penguindrum,” and “Pani Poni dash!”

Asuka Shibuichi
I check the voice actors before the director or script. If any voice actor I like is part of it, I will watch the anime to the end no matter what…
