So here's an odd anime that just kinda popped up. I didn't see any formal announcement about it, but then again, I wasn't looking for one because I just saw it on the new episodes RSS feeds.

http://www.crunchyroll.com/peeping-life-tv-season-1

It's a full-length episode. They're apparently using quite a few famous anime characters in various skit routines. Those of a certain vintage might remember a show called "Space Ghost Coast to Coast", which is kinda the closest thing I can compare with. It's not knee-slapping funny, more surreal. Seems to be all improv.

watched this was thinking maybe I needed party favors like more alcohol to make this funnier I can see the improv aspect not much difference in VA voices when saying the lines definitely a different style of anime maybe one more episode would be good filler like adult swim

It was fairly fun, but I think it would have been better if each piece were a bit shorter, and, tbh, if they were dealt out in separate short episodes rather than run together in a full 24 minute episode.

I did giggle at the bit about the difficulty of resting pointy Astro Boy hair on a girl's shoulder

This looks too weird for me. I'll pass for now.

I agree breaking it into shorts probably would have been better, but knowing the characters (and liking weird humor) I found it overall pretty enjoyable for a first episode.

Edit: I liked the "Black Jack Gets a Cold" the most. "You're not even a real doctor!"

I'm guessing Dumb Couple might be a recurring skit. They just love to butcher English. Apparently "flu" is written with characters that, individually, mean "evil wind":

Astroboy is pissed off that Jetto got a girlfriend and breaks Jetto's model train.



Dumb Couple wasn't quite as funny this week. I guess he just doesn't know that the door pushes IN, not OUT.

Episode 6

The funniest was Triton trying to use the treadmill. Joyner speed. So many obscure references, I had to look them up, and apparently Joyner was a real Olympic medalist known as the fastest woman ever.



Then we had Ambassador Magma, a 60s live-action series that pre-dates Ultraman, but only by a few days. It was dubbed as The Space Giants, with some embarrassing dubbing https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kcDRg9N8OwE



No more Dumb Couple. Now they've got the match-making service, but that's not as good.

Anyways, apparently this whole Peeping Life thing is a franchise. There's a 40 episode series called World History (5 minutes each) of the same typical humor. The best is the recurring ninjas (*poof*). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pkLpVk2QYrE.

That celebrity panel was great. It was almost the entire show, but even so. Some of Megwin's reactions were hilarious, like when he kept throwing stuff at Sapphire. I'd like to imagine them sitting in a studio, each actor showing their drawings and everyone reacting in real-time, rather than scripted. I guess it would be easier to animate that way, rather than the way they showed us on Seiyu's Life! (voicing to already animated material, versus animating based on the actor's behavior)
