Don’t even attempt to watch this unless you have at least 180 IQ or unless four generations of your ancestors have lived in Nagoya. Mere commoners can not hope to understand such concepts as “a regional dialect sounds funny” or “a regional culture is exotic”, and might even hurt themselves if they try.
Well, alright, I’m a 1/8 Nagoyan, and we’re known for our benevolence, so I’ll teach you the wisdom of my people. In Nagoya dialect, the syllables “ai” and “ae” turn into “yaa” (umai -> umyaa, omae -> omyaa) which to other Japanese sounds like cat noises. This is why the female lead here looks like a cat girl. Now go take a 20 minute break and measure your blood pressure to see if you can withstand so much new information at once. Consult a medical professional if necessary. You can now try to watch this anime if you dare, but I wouldn’t recommend it. Actually, if you think about it, ALL of the anime is filled with dangerous foreign cultural elements, so I wouldn’t recommend watching any of them. Don’t take any risks.
Alright, now the actual review part for people who breathe through their noses. This is a boke & tsukkomi comedy, with weird Nagoya regional quirks providing the boke part. There is a cat girl adorably self-conscious about her thick accent. Her hair clips deserve an Oscar for best supporting actor. Other three main characters are endearing enough for a cast of a 3-minute format comedy. The disclaimer gag at the beginning keeps evolving (at one point they got the mayor of Nagoya to do it). The ending tune is catchy. Production values are decent. There is gonna be a second season. This show delivers pretty much everything you want from a short-form series.
