Plot

The story revolves around a little girl named Kohina. Kohina ends up summoning a Kokkuri-san, a low-ranking ghost in Japanese folklore. The Kokkuri-san she calls turns out to be a white-haired handsome, young man. At first he had intended to merely haunt her, but soon he becomes worried about her terrible eating habit of cup ramen for every meal. He later decides to haunt her in order to protect her.


Review

This anime was amazingly done the artwork was great and the story line was excellent , the anime was really funny especially Kohina (heroine) despite having ''I do not care'' kinda personalty and a weird family.If you don't like the characters well you will not enjoy the show. Kokkuri himself is portrayed as an attractive spirit struggling with a mid-life crisis due to him fearing for his relevance in the the modern world. Although he's a man he has many intricacies that one would normally associate with women. This takes form (literally) later on in the show. Now Kohina can be a really hit or miss character with some people. Her design is extremely deformed in comparison to all of the other characters (which turns a lot of people off), but anyone who is familiar with "Oyasumi Punpun" should have at least some idea of whats really going on there. She is the center of all insanity that happens in each episode. Shigaraki was probably my favorite character although he started out as my least favorite. Another spirit who often brings misfortune to others, but despite this he is a true romantic. Inugami is yandere dog who died from neglect but was reincarnated into the world as a spirit. He/she gender swaps often due forgetting his/her gender in the previous life. Characters interactions were entertaining throughout. honestly the ending was unexpected to all viewers they use the gags and the jokes to cover up, what is truly going on.In the middle of an episode they mention something about a promise and its not til we reach last episode when we found out its was stocking we saw a like older version of Kohina and we realize that Kokkuri was protecting and taking care of her for centuries before and after death.


[b]Conclusion- If you want some laughs look no further! This is your show! If you want anything else... Its a questionable endeavor. I gave it a great 8 because not many shows can make me laugh as much as this one did.

Sound/art- My roommate walked in on me dancing to the opening and said "wtf are you doing bro." 10/10

The opening is cleverly done, full of personality, and of course catchy as hell. The ending is good as well, and the shows OST is funny sounding... in the best way possible. As for the art I'd say its completely average. I mean sure it has a certain style to it, but in comparison to many other shows released this year there really is nothing notable about it.


Should Watch:
-If Satire/parody is your thing, because this show has every western/Japanese pop culture gag you can think of.
-Had a rough day? Just sit back and laugh it off!
-Fun Characters that will grow on you.

Should avoid:
-If you want some sort of meaningful romance/drama.
-Some gags get repetitive

This was a fun show that I enjoyed a lot.

BTW, starting these threads in the Anime forum where your review can serve as a jumping off point for folks who want to discuss a show for which there is no other active discussion thread is fine.

However, if your primary purpose is to promote your reviews and get feedback about them (rather than discussion about the show) then starting a thread in the Enthusiasts' Corner forum is more appropriate. There you could start a single thread and add new posts for each review -- and put a kind of directory to the separate posts in the opening thread--which you can update when you add new reviews.
