Puparia

Puparia

A Modern Classic

Puparia (PUPARIA) is an original anime film by Shingo Tamagawa that released on November 20, 2020. It’s 3 minutes long, and the video embedded above is from his official YouTube channel if you’re interested in checking it out before continuing on with this review.

Before watching this short film, I had no idea who Shingo Tamagawa was. But after looking through his previous anime positions, I saw that he was actually a key animator for episode 4 of March comes in like a lion 2nd Season. That’s the only other anime I’ve seen that he’s worked on, but I think it’s a 10/10 so that’s not bad.

Puparia is very different from March comes in like a lion though, or any other anime I’ve seen for that matter. There’s no dialogue, and as far as I can tell there’s no story either. Maybe Shingo had some sort of story he was trying to tell when he was making this. But I have no idea what it is.

However, despite the fact that it’s only 3 minutes long, has no dialogue, and has no discernible plot, it feels good to watch. I watched through it a few times and sat thinking about it for about 40 minutes before I began writing this review. There’s a lot to digest despite how it may appear.

It actually reminded me of some classic anime, which is why I chose the title “A Modern Classic” for this section. My first impression was that it has a similar vibe to Serial Experiments Lain and Texhnolyze despite the subject matter being vastly different.

The music reminds me of Akira for some reason. Maybe there was a similar track in that, but I don’t remember. What I do remember though is that it’s similar to the song “Those Everyday Feels” from Made in Abyss.

Renaissance Art Animated

My favorite part of this short anime film is the art. I’m pretty sure that the vast majority of people who watch it will agree with me on that. At first, I was thinking that it looks like a colored manga, but animated. Not an anime adaptation of a colored manga, but as if the manga itself was animated.

But on my second watch through, I decided that comparison wasn’t quite right. There are plenty of manga that look amazing, but the art in this series is on another level. It was during the scene of the man looking down the hall that I realized what the art reminded me of — Renaissance art.

The character art is definitely good in Puparia. But the background art is where I think it really shines. There’s just so much detail that it really is like you’re looking at a Renaissance painting that happens to have characters moving through it.

I’m a huge fan of stylized and detailed art in anime. It can be on the tamer side, like Monogatari, or even on the more extreme side, like Mononoke. But as long as an anime looks different from the usual batch of seasonal shows, I’ll tend to like it a bit more.

The problem is that making a stylized anime is a risk. There are a lot of people who see an anime that doesn’t fit the standard, generic art style they’re accustomed to and write it off without giving it a chance. Ping Pong the Animation is one such series that I think probably suffers from this.

So, unfortunately, there aren’t all that many full-length anime out there that have art styles as unique and detailed as Puparia does. In This Corner of the World is one that stands out to me. But even that doesn’t have the same art style. That one looks like watercolors while this one looks like colored pencils.

Uncanny Eyes

One thing I didn’t really like about this short film is the lack of facial expressions on the various characters. The only time we saw a character without a blank expression was when the moth girl smiles at the very end. Though, I will say that I still felt like I understood the feelings of the man in the house even without any expression.

Anyway, the part of the faces that were focused on the most were the eyes, which is something I enjoy. Whenever there’s a cool shot of a character’s eyes, I’m a fan. And despite what I’m about to say about a particular pair of eyes in this film, I’m still a fan of them.

For the most part, I enjoyed the eyes in Puparia simply because they were highly detailed. But the movement of the moth girl’s eyes at the end was extremely unsettling. I’m not sure why exactly it was, but there are a few possible explanations I can think of.

I’m not sure if this is actually the case or not, because I’m no animation expert, but the moth girl’s eyes being averted looked like the smoothest animation of the film to me. So perhaps the uncanny movement had to do with it appearing smoother than everything else.

Another possible explanation is that it’s connected to the widening of her eyes when her pupils move. It looks like a primal response to her hearing something off in the distance. Not like she heard something and turned towards it out of interest. More like she instinctively reacted in that way.

And I think the fact that we don’t know what she was reacting to adds to it. What elicited that kind of response out of her? Is something bad coming? Maybe, but at the same time, her smile was reassuring.

Conclusion

If you’ve made it this far, I’m going to assume you’ve watched Puparia since it’s embedded at the top of this review. So what do you think of it? Let me know in the comments. To me, I think it’s a 7/10. It’s very artistic, and I like that, but I’d also like a bit more identifiable substance.

Robot on the Road

Robot on the Road

Short Film Background

Robot on the Road (Tabi no Robo Kara / 旅のロボから) is a short film presented as part of the Japan Anima(tor)’s Exhibition in 2015. It has a run time of about 9 minutes, meaning that it only requires a small time commitment, even when compared to standard anime episodes.

Additionally, this short film is easily found on YouTube, so the barrier to entry on this is even lower than most other anime. There’s no need to have a subscription to a legal anime streaming site, and there’s no need to visit an illegal anime streaming site if that’s something you’re against.

As for the creator of Robot on the Road, that would be Hiroyuki Okiura. He designed the characters, wrote the script, directed the film, and even did the key animation. But, why should you care about any of that? Well, you may be familiar with some of the other anime Hiroyuki has worked on.

Most notably, he was a key animator on both Neon Genesis Evangelion and Akira, among many other famous anime. He also has had multiple roles as a director, including directing the opening scene of the Cowboy Bebop movie. He’s been working in the industry for a long time and has been part of a lot of great productions.

“But what about the voice actors?” I hear you ask. Good question, dear reader. There are only two characters in this short film, and they’re both voiced by some pretty well-known voice actors: Megumi Hayashibara and Kôichi Yamadera.

If you don’t recognize their names, I don’t really blame you because I certainly didn’t. But either way, you’ve probably seen something they’ve been in, including both the aforementioned Neon Genesis Evangelion and Cowboy Bebop.

Characters and Plot

The first of the two characters we see, but second to be named, in the short film is Robowo, the titular robot on the road. Robowo is allegedly hitchhiking to Central City to get maintenance done by Cyberdydy Corp. However, as the film progresses, it becomes apparent that he has an ulterior motive.

It doesn’t take long to realize that Robowo isn’t the most stand-up robot around. He’s very interested in girls, specifically those in their late teens and early twenties as we learn later on. And, he uses the many features built into his body to catalog the girls he meets on his travels.

His eyes are able to calculate the approximate age of women along with their three sizes. He also has a camera built into his chest which he uses to take voyeuristic photos of these unsuspecting girls in various levels of undress. Finally, he uploads these photos to his multiple blogs and writes about his encounters.

Mina is the woman who picks up Robowo from the side of the road out in the country at the start of the film. She drives an old, red pickup truck and tows a chrome trailer in which she lives. We don’t know where Mari is going, but we do know that she can take Robowo at least part of the way to Central City.

We don’t know all that much about Mina. But, the three things we do know about her are her sizes. Her bust size is 88cm (E cup), her waist is 58cm, and her hips are 86cm. Robowo acquires this information about her within minutes of meeting her.

Not all heroes wear capes; some wear a cowboy hat and handkerchief.

Should You Watch It?

Considering the people who worked on Robot on the Road, I would recommend it to anyone who’s interested in the anime industry. It has great art, animation, writing, and acting all wrapped up in a 9-minute package. From that perspective, I don’t see a reason not to watch it.

However, I do need to mention that this short film does contain nudity. I don’t mean your run of the mill censored anime nudity, either. I mean full, uncensored nudity. Nothing about Mina’s body is left up to the imagination.

The reason I wanted to mention that because I know that some people may be inclined to watch this film with others or in a public setting, especially since it’s so readily available on YouTube.

However, despite this nudity, it’s not like your traditional ecchi anime. The nudity is much more candid than in ecchi anime because Robowo’s role is that of a voyeur. And with that in mind, I would say that the nudity is more artistic and tasteful in how it’s used despite the obvious sexual aspect of it for Robowo.

To me, this short film is just a great example of a writer, director, and animator having fun with their craft. Robot on the Road isn’t going to make you think. It’s a comedy about a robot that hitchhikes around the country as a pretense to take risqué pictures of the women who give him a lift.

It’s a short film about nothing made for a festival, and yet it looks as good and has as much character as any A-list anime movie out there. And that’s how you can tell it was a passion project that Hiroyuki made because he enjoys what he does as a creative.

Conclusion

To me, Robot on the Road is a solid 8/10, and that’s not just because Mina is the ideal female form. Sure, she’s cute and perfect in every way, but this is a review of the anime, not of her. If I had to point out one downside of this film, it would probably be that it’s so short.

I could probably watch an entire, full-length series of Robowo’s travels. There are probably a lot of stories that could be told. But at the same time, perhaps it’s better that there’s so little content. It makes the viewer long for more, which is generally a sign of a good anime.

WATATEN!: an Angel Flew Down to Me Special

WATATEN!: an Angel Flew Down to Me Special

You Never Let Us Down

The WATATEN!: an Angel Flew Down to Me (Watashi ni Tenshi ga Maiorita! / 私に天使が舞い降りた!) Special is exactly what you would expect. It’s a single episode that just includes more content from the series. But unlike the main series episodes, it’s broken into four parts that each tell a different story.

The first story, “You Never Let Us Down” is what I would call the primary story of the special. It’s one of the two longer stories, but it’s also the one that has the most plot. Or, at least as close as WATATEN will ever get to a plot.

In this story, the three main girls, Hinata, Hana, and Noa, go camping at a lake with Miyako and her mother. They talk swim in the lake, Mikayo takes some photographs, they have a barbecue, they make s’mores, they sleep in tents, the whole camping experience.

I don’t remember if there was an obligatory beach episode in the main series. But if there wasn’t, this is as close as you’re going to get to a beach episode of WATATEN. However, that doesn’t mean you should expect any ecchi fan service. These characters are like 8 years old and Miyako would never wear something revealing.

I’m not really sure who would go into a special for this series expecting it to include ecchi. But I’ve come across some Miyako fan art in the year since this series released, so I know there are people out there who want that.

Always Growing Closer

The second story, “Always Growing Closer” is definitely the worst of the four. It tells the tale of how Miyako and Matsumoto “met.” There’s not much to say about this story. It’s maybe two minutes long and was already shown in the full series, so I’m not sure why it was included here as well.

My best guess is that they needed to fill up two more minutes of the special’s run time so they just added it into the middle. There’s really no other reason I can think of for it to be included.

I was going to say that there’s a possibility that it was included as a refresher of who Matsumoto is considering she’s featured somewhat prominently in the third story of the special. But even that doesn’t make sense because Matsumoto is already introduced in the first story of the special when she shows up at the campsite.

Yeah, I can’t think of any good reason as to why this is included in the special.

Let’s Change You Into This!

Story number three is the second of the two longer stories. This is a Halloween story, which doesn’t exactly make sense considering that this special was released in May. But, I guess the timing doesn’t really matter considering there are many series that have holiday episodes or specials in the middle of the summer.

While the first story was the main plot portion of the special, the third, “Let’s Change You Into This!” is the main fan service portion. The Halloween theme of this story is effectively just in place so that we can see the various characters all wearing costumes. However, considering that Miyako likes to dress the girls up in cosplay anyway, that Halloween excuse wasn’t really necessary.

Ignoring Miyako’s fantasies about what costume Hana will be wearing (one of which is pictured above), the first two characters we see in costume are Kouko and Yuuna Matsumoto. Kouko is dressed as Waldo from “Where’s Waldo?” and Yuuna is a jack-o-lantern.

In case you were wondering, Yuuna has the best costume of the episode.

Next, the Matsumoto sisters convince Miyako to wear a fairy costume that the elder Matsumoto made. And finally, the rest of the girls arrive. Hinata is a werewolf, Noa is a devil, Kanon is a witch, and Koyori is a bat.

What I like about all of these costumes, I believe with the exception of Koyori’s, is that they’re all costumes Miyako fantasized Hana wearing. The fairy, werewolf, devil, and witch were all possible costumes for Hana. But if they’re already being worn, what’s Hana’s costume going to be?

If you guessed that Hana would show up as a Higero zombie, you’re the winner.

I’m Your Big Sister

The fourth and final story of the episode, “I’m Your Big Sister” is another shorter part. This time, it focuses on Miyako when Hinata was born. It’s overall pretty boring and the only reason I’m not saying that it’s the worst of the four stories is that we had literally already seen the second one.

So instead of talking about this story anymore, let’s take a detour and discuss how Koyori is the true best girl of the series and how every time I see her I think she’s cross-eyed. As for the first part of that statement, I think it’s pretty self-evident as to why Koyori is the best girl.

She’s a tsundere with twin-tails. Is there really anything more I have to say?

The second part of my statement is probably throwing some of you off, so allow me to explain. Koyori’s eyes are a different shape compared to the other characters in this series. They flair out on the outer sides towards the top, which in turn reveals more of the whites of her eyes on those sides.

All of the other characters generally have their pupils in the center of their eyes, but because of Koyori’s eye shape, her pupils are more towards the inside edge of her eyes than the outside edge. So, while I know that her eyes are just supposed to be more slanted than the other characters’, I can’t help but see her as being cross-eyed with her pupils turned inwards and downwards.

But, I also think that adds to Koyori’s charm. It’s cute.

Conclusion

Just like the main series, I have to give the WATATEN!: an Angel Flew Down to Me Special a 6/10. It was enjoyable enough, but not to the point that I would use the word “good” to describe it. If you liked the main series, there’s no reason you wouldn’t like this special as well.

To LOVE-Ru OVA

To LOVE-Ru OVA

To LOVE-Ru anime series OVA cover art
To LOVE-Ru OVA

OVA Overview

The To LOVE-Ru OVA (To LOVEる -とらぶる-) is a six-episode OVA series that comes between the full seasons of To LOVE-Ru and Motto To LOVE-Ru. Normally with an ecchi series like this, you would expect the OVA to be much better than the TV series because it can be less censored (as was the case with Kiss x Sis).

However, as you’ll see, the To LOVE-Ru OVA didn’t capitalize on this very well. I’d say it was either on-par with the first season of the series, if not actually worse than it overall.

1. Rito becomes a Woman

The best episode of the OVA was probably the very first one in which Rito is turned into a girl after he accidentally activates one of Lala’s inventions. Originally, the device was supposed to be used on a girl to alter her breast size so that it would perfectly match Rito’s preference. But when Rito crashes into it, it does more than just that to him.

So, why is this the best episode? It can be summed up in two words: Uncensored yuri. This episode probably had the most uncensored content in it out of all of them, which if I’m being honest, is the main draw of the series. Additionally, because Rito was turned into “Riko,” we got more yuri scenes than average.

2. Rito and Mikan

The second episode was my least favorite of the six. I really like Mikan, but the episode that focused on her wasn’t a particularly ecchi one. It did have a really good ad break card of Mikan though, so it gets some bonus points for that.

This episode focused more on Rito and Mikan’s relationship as they grew up. When they were children, Rito used to do everything possible to make his little sister happy. But now, he spends most of his time with Lala, which makes Mikan feel tossed aside. As I said, it’s not a very good episode.

3. Welcome to the Southern Resort!!

Episode 3 had the potential to be the best episode of the series, but then it dropped the ball. This was the obligatory beach episode in which twelve of the girls in the series all go to a private island resort together. Also, adding to its potential is the fact that Rito was turned into a dog, so he wasn’t really there.

Unfortunately, there were (I think) three times in the episode that were just literal slideshows. Before the ad break, after the ad break, and I’m pretty sure again later in the episode, a song played and we got a slideshow of the girls doing beach activities. And in case you were wondering, the slideshows were censored.

The one good part of the episode, though, came when the girls all went into the sauna together. That was uncensored.

4. Trouble Quest

Trouble Quest was an odd episode. In it, a few characters were transported into an RPG world and had to defeat the demon lord (Kyouko) in order to rescue princess Lala. I say it was odd because a fantasy world is clearly a setting you can do a lot with in an ecchi series, but they opted to reuse the same gag something like three or four times instead.

It really felt like they were throwing in a fantasy world episode so they could check a box rather than because they wanted to tell a unique story or do unique gags with it. But, it was the only episode to include Kyouko, so it gets a bonus point for that.

5. Nana and Momo

I don’t remember Nana and Momo being introduced in the first season of To LOVE-Ru, but I guess they were since they appear in the OVA without an explanation of who they are. Of course, I did know who they were even without remembering their introduction in season one.

And for anyone wondering, Nana > Momo > Lala.

This episode was pretty basic. It involves Nana and Momo trying to determine if Rito is right for their sister. Nana doesn’t believe Rito is a good match, while Momo does (and sort of wants him for herself). They start off by simply spying on Rito, but eventually transition into manipulating events around him to see how he reacts.

Overall, I would say this was the episode most similar to the main series. It didn’t really have any special gimmick or setting. It’s just a simple story about Rito being messed with by some of the female cast.

6. Draft, Metamorphose, Hand & Tail

The final episode was actually pretty good now that I’ve had time to think more about it and write about the preceding episodes. This one was split into three parts that each told a different story following different characters.

First, we start off with what could have been the best episode of the OVA if it was an entire episode long. The first story follows Yui Kotegawa around school after the loses her panties. It’s a thrilling tale of one girl’s adventure to find her lost panties without anyone realizing she isn’t wearing any.

Part two was probably the weakest of the three. This one follows Mikan and Peke as they track down a thief who stole Mikan’s bag while she was out shopping. And the third part is about Rito’s hand getting stuck to Lala’s tail, which, in case you didn’t know, is a very sensitive part of a Devilukian’s body.

Conclusion

Overall, I think the To LOVE-Ru OVA is a 6/10 just like the first season of the anime series. However, I would place it as a slightly lower 6/10 than the series. As I mentioned at the start, I just don’t feel like it took enough advantage of the fact that it’s an OVA.

While I don’t have much to say about the ED, I will say that I might like the OP of the OVA more than the first season. I do really like the first season OP song, but I think the entire package of the OVA OP may have been better.

Laid-Back Camp Specials

Laid-Back Camp Specials

Specials Overview

The Laid-Back Camp Specials (Yuru Camp△ Specials / ゆるキャン△) are three shorts with an average length of about 8 minutes, making the trio roughly as long as a standard episode when combined. I’m not really sure why I never watched these specials until now considering I’ve seen both the original Laid-Back Camp and the Room Camp short series, but here we are.

I went into these specials expecting them to be mini versions of the main series episodes. However, that’s not what they are. Instead, they’re a combination of Room Camp and completely random content. The first episode is literally titled “Room Camp Episode 0,” the second episode is effectively a Room Camp episode, and the third episode is… something else.

But despite the fact that I didn’t get what I was hoping for out of these shorts, they were quite good. They weren’t as good as the main series, but they were definitely better than Room Camp, which was an overall disappointment for me.

Room Camp Episode 0

The first episode was the weakest of the three, which makes a lot of sense considering it’s just the prequel episode to the Room Camp short series. This episode “follows” Chiaki Oogaki and Aoi Inuyama as they play make-believe camping within the club room.

I’m pretty sure there was an episode from the actual Room Camp that was just like this one, but I can’t be certain because I’m not going to check.

It starts off with Chiaki and Aoi looking through a camping magazine and talking about their winter camping dreams. However, their chat quickly spirals downward once they see the prices for the equipment in the magazine. And this prompts Chiaki to question why everyday items can’t just be used for camping.

As expected, it turns out that there are actually reasons behind the use of specialized camping gear. For example, switchblades are safer to carry because the blades are covered in transit and sleeping bags are better than futons because they’re more compact and lightweight.

The episode culminates with the pair imagining a campsite created with everyday items which they ultimately refer to as hobo-chic. I think they’ll be sticking to the classic camping gear in the future.

Ruse Camp

Episode 2 still took place within the club room but was much better overall than the first. This time around, additional characters such as Nadeshiko, Rin, Ena, Sakura, and Akari make appearances. The episode focuses on Nadeshiko getting tricked by the other characters, specifically Aoi, Ena, and Akari.

I think this was Akari’s first appearance in the series. Or rather, I know this was her first chronological appearance in the series because Nadeshiko and Chiaki don’t know who she is at first. But what I mean is, I don’t think she was featured in Room Camp either since I watched that first.

Akari Inuyama from the Laid-Back Camp anime series specials
Akari Inuyama

Akari is Aoi’s younger sister and looks almost exactly like her except smaller and with different colored eyes. She even acts just like Aoi and uses the same facial expression when she’s attempting to trick Nadeshiko.

At the end of the episode, Ena rounds up all the other girls, except Rin, and has them impersonate Rin in an attempt to confuse Nadeshiko. Unfortunately for Ena, I don’t think her prank was quite as good as Akari pretending to be a shrunken down version of Aoi. There’s just no replacement for the one, true Shimarin.

Survival Camp

The third episode was by far the best, as well as the longest, of the three. Incidentally, it was also the only one that didn’t take place within the club room — there’s definitely some correlation there. Instead, this episode took place on a deserted island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean (about a mile off the coast of Japan).

What was supposed to be a relaxing camping holiday in Australia for Nadeshiko, Rin, Ena, Chiaki, and Aoi turned into a nightmare. Or, it almost did. After their airplane suffered a minor malfunction, the girls decided to jump out over the open ocean, because why not? Luckily, they landed on a tropical island and had a nice time camping there instead.

As for the highlights of this episode, the best one came during the plane malfunction. If you’re unsure about whether to watch these specials, please at least watch this third episode specifically for the plane malfunction scene. It’s quite possibly the best piece of Laid-Back Camp content I’ve seen, rivaled only by Rin getting attacked by a bear that one time.

The second and third highlights of the episode are so close that they could go either way. First, Chiaki becomes the lord of the bananas. We don’t know where she found so many bananas, but she claims that they spoke to her. Second, Rin catches a large fish. That’s it. That’s the highlight.

Despite the fact that Rin is my favorite character, I think I’m going to put Chiaki, lord of the bananas, in second place after the airplane malfunction scene. And since Chiaki played a fairly large role in that scene as well, I guess she also wins the prize for the most entertaining character of the specials.

Conclusion

I think I’m going to give the Laid-Back Camp Specials a 7/10. The first episode was pretty weak, but the next two really made up for it, especially since the first episode was also the shortest. It’s just too bad that the Room Camp short series was based on the first special episode and not the third.
