  • Short, funny, and a little interesting.
    If you enjoy cultural differences, good music, and animated shorts, then check it out. This show isn't meant to be some amazing, serious anime, so I'm not going to review it like one. I usually take shows for what it's worth and this is no exception. So, if you like stupid jokes, good music, cultural differences, and animated shorts, give it a shot. However, if you are trying to find something in ...

  • Wow, Crunchyroll is showing this extremely-esoteric-for-non-Japanese comedy!!
    As I know Osaka, I LOLed, but most people won't understand it. It's very esoteric. Every Japanese says what's funniest about this is the ENDING, which is different for each episode. Especially the difficulty lies in "Tsukkomi", a reply to a joke, which doesn't even have a English Wikipedia entry despite the fact that it's critical for any Japanese comedy and manzai.

    Una entretenida introducción a la cultura de Osaka
    Este es de los primeros animés cortos que veo. Me ha gustado mucho, pero no es para cualquiera. Osaka-okan no tiene una trama definida y la animación está hecha con flash; pero lo interesante y atractivo de la serie está en las ocurrencias de Namika, la chica que vino de Osaka a vivir con su hermano mayor Kyosuke en Tokyo. Lo que resulta es el intercambio cultural de Osaka y todas sus costumbres y ...

    A More Clean, Japanese version of South Park?
    I'm not one who cares for colloquial differences that knock one another as a joke. Nor do I care much for animators that decide to take huge short-cuts in actively making something that they hope is watch-worthy. This series did nothing but turn me off to it within the first few episodes. If you're into that sort of thing, enjoy.

    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 ...

  • 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.

  • 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 ...

    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.
