Bouida Haruto, a hardcore otaku with no interest in 3D (real) women, once appreciated figures from afar, accepting that "if you get into them, there's no turning back." However, when Nona, a character he loved from an anime called "Girls→Planetary Investigation" had a figure of her released, he ended up purchasing it. And then that night, the figure of Nona somehow came to life, and a couple-like lifestyle between man and toy began. (Source: MU)
The most underrated anime this season, a really enjoyable lighthearted comedy.
I have no idea why this show is actually so low-rated. It’s honestly one of the best shows airing right now. I actually feel sad if you miss out on this masterpiece. Which doesn’t make sense because this show is all about otaku life and something I thought most anime fans would be able to relate to: figures and merchandise! A real diamond in the rough, this show is better than any of the other trash comedies airing right now. In these times where the anime industry is dominated with isekai plots and shounen giants, really good lighthearted shows are hard to find, they’re all mostly highschool slice of life. This is a breath of fresh air and the best comedy airing this season.
Its biggest flaw is also its greatest strength. The show heavily relies on 3D CGI in its animation, and god forbid anything 3D should be rated anything decent. I really liked the 3D CGI because the characters are figures, they’re supposed to look mechanical. And honestly who even cares if they used 3D CGI if it looks good. But I guess some people aren’t willing to take a chance on anything that’s different.
This is the show I look forward to watching the most which isn’t a continuing season. I only wish it was longer. Probably another reason it isn’t as popular is that it’s only 12 minutes per episode. Although there have been some 12 minute-length anime which have done well in the past like tsurezure children, or even now, isekai quartet, people will tend to watch these shows less because of its length and it’s unfortunate since it’s a really good show.

A complete ripoff of toy story, just kidding haha. But it’s a comedy so don’t take it too seriously. I think people who watch comedies for the story are like people who fish in the desert. Whatever floats your boat.
Art – 7
Heavily uses 3D CGI but if you can get past that, animation is pretty fluid. Character designs are really nice as well for the figures, I can imagine myself buying them if they actually release figures for this show haha.
Sound – 7
Not amazing but also not bad. They make use of 8-bit music in some scenes where characters from RPG’s appear which is nostalgic for some people who’ve played those games. I think it’s nice they add those little fine touches here and there.
Character – 9
NONA A BEST! FIGHT ME!
Enjoyment – 10
I’m really enjoying this show so far. It’s really moe. Maybe I like it more because I’m also a hobbyist. I find it fun to build and collect figures so I can relate more to this show. But the show is more of a comedy so really anyone should be able to enjoy it.
Overall – 8
A really underrated show and I hope it gets more popularity. Especially because I really really really want to buy a Nona figure haha. You can also free Choukadou Girl ⅙ anime watch online and free anime download.
