    You need some Japanese culture and language to fully enjoy
    These are short flash based animations. The jokes don't translate well into English making it an odd choice for a show to be subtitled. Based on the first two episodes the translation itself is fine.

    If you understand or have an interest in the cultural divide between the Tokyo and Osaka areas and the different dialects it is worth watching. However, it is well worn topic and the show isn't ...

    I'm usually not a fan of 4 min Comedy..
    So, there haven't been too many short panel comedy that I've actually laughed at. However, This had me laughing quite a bit.
    The basis is completely cultural, and the premise of the series is the differences between Kansai people and Tokyo. It's not original, but this pulls it off very well for me. I've known some people from Kansai and Tokyo. The stories go off a brother and sister duo ...

    How to make an anime on a shoe string budget...
    How to describe this show in a nutshell...
    -Episode Structure-
    Start: Pan of the younger sister, who makes an out of place joke about incest...
    Middle: Some inane conversation about how Osakans are different...
    Ending: Bathtub song about how much better Osaka is than Tokyo... Lyrics change

    Nope. It doesn't deviate from that formula... It's basically like a guy from New York discussing pop ...

    It's not that bad...
    Decent short animations, although I wish they were longer. The characters are ok as well as their personalities/characteristics. The animation is pretty rough, as I feel like I'm watching something made by Newgrounds members. But I will say that I really like the story, and I'll root for a second season.

    I've also noticed the heavy criticism on this series. Seriously, it's not that bad.

    Short, but hilarious
    This show really makes you feel for those crazy Osakans who always get poked fun of these days. Hitting on just about every stereotype there is, this series teaches us about the importance of cultural identity and acceptance... I think? Or maybe it just pokes more fun at Osaka.

    Watching it did give me the feeling, though, that rather than giving Osaka characters accents resembling ones from the ...

    Little shots of Kansai goodness
    These flashvids are little snapshots that can help you appreciate that Japan is a big country with lots of local culture and pride. Don't come here looking for deep characters or powerful conflicts, but you will likely chuckle at some of the subs, as well as the dialogue can be translated into English...my poor Japanese was completely crushed by a couple of the translations, so I'm unreliable in ...

  • Not sure about this one
    Since I don't know enough about Japanese culture (especially the Osakan subculture), I can't tell if this is a loving satire or a mean-spirited stereotype. Either way, it was funny, and I found it easy to look past the low-budget production. The voice acting makes the show, particularly Namika.

  • I think I'm turning into an Osaka-Okan
    It starts out with an awful animation style and a concept that is mildly comical. After the first few episodes however, you don't even notice that the animation resembles something off of Newgrounds and you're basically coming back to see what rules the Osaka Mama has in store for you today. Each episode is about 3 and a half minutes and it was worth every second of my time.

  • Definitely amusing if you know Japanese!
    I just randomly found this title on the front page carousel and decided to give it a try. My rule for shorts in general is to expect nothing. If it even amuses me a little, then it had done its job.

    After meeting a ton of people from both Osaka and Tokyo, I can definitely see a lot of parodies about them in this anime. If you like Osaka-ben, you'll probably get a couple laughs out of this anime ...

  • Not as bad as people might think.
    Once you get passed the god awful flash animation the story get's interesting and funny. Although some people might think it is horrible because of the animation and the incestuous jokes the main character tells in the beginning.

    Just watch it.
