    Worst Informational Program Ever
    An informational show on accents with incestuous jokes thrown in and a horrible bathroom song added at the end basically sums up the entire first episode. I doubt the rest of the series is going to get any better than this cheesy mess. The girl's singing was probably the best part of the whole show and even that was lame. If you can learn anything from this, it'd be about Japanese culture and ...

  • Osaka-okan - Curious and Funny
    When I first watched this show I thought I wouldn't care for it. By the third episode I was really enjoying it. The basic premise of the differences between Osaka and well, everywhere else, makes for a very curious show. I always crack up at the ending songs because they're just so random and offbeat. If you're looking for anything close to the average anime story then this show is NOT for you. ...

    Why is this on Crunchyroll?
    This short, low budget anime is about an average highschool boy’s little sister from Osaka coming back to live with him after 10 years apart. Sounds like an interesting plot but don’t get your hopes up.

    From appearance this looks as if its a slapstick comedy about a little sister trying to make passes at her brother, putting them in many wacky and awkward situations. I was disappointed to find ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    Not really a comedy..
    I`m writing this review on episode 1 only. The serie might get better later so its up to you if you want to continue.
    First of all the anime has episodes that are like 5 minutes long. Usually it doesnt work for me, and for this anime it didn`t. Now for the important part, the jokes. I had a chuckle or two, but it was nothing that made me really want to keep watching. If the anime continues like ...
