The "pleasant horror gag comedy" centers around the life of Tatami-chan, a sardonic ghost from Iwate Prefecture who is now living in Tokyo among other spirits, supernatural entities, and humans. In addition to dealing with otherworldly matters, the unemployed Tatami-chan also has to deal with job-hunting as well as paying for gas, water, and electricity. (Source: ANN)
So looking I was looking through all the anime that was airing this season, and this anime caught my eyes. As the time of writing this is rated as an 4.90. It is the worst rated anime this season and I wanted to check out how bad this was.
But after binging the first five episodes, I have come to the conclusion that this anime is actually quite decent.
This short anime is about a little girl named Tatami moving to tokyo and getting used to the city. Also she is ghost and all her friends are other horror creatures. Every episode has a runtime of 4 minutes, inlcuding the 30 seconds ED. Its runtime is certainly a big downside, but not the biggest because the biggest downside goes to the animation. Because there is almost no animation. Everyone is drawn in static poses only changing faces or positions once in a blue moon. The artstyle is nice, but that does not make up for the power point presentation that is this anime.
But despite the extremely lacking animation and runtime, I am still enjoying this anime quite a bit. The anime has a cynical style of humor which resonates with. I especially love when Tatami gets into a stupid situation and she doesn’t want to participate in any of it, she just wants to leave. The dialogue is really sharp and has some good quotes. The voice acting is also suprisingly solid, which makes up for the lacking presentation.
In conclusion, this anime is a pleasant surprise. I expected the worst and I got something half-decent. It is short, but that doesn’t make the gags go stale. There is no animation, but the voice acting makes up for it. Characters shout all the time but they are atleast shouting funny things.
Also, the ED song is nice.
Check this anime out if you have a cynical style of humor.
