That show was...I'm not sure. It was certainly...colourful. As far as it goes it does seem to be a strange and poorly animated kids show. I've seen worse though. When my kids were small enough to watch stuff in the same vein as this I saw some pretty horrid shows (I tried to be the good dad, watching shows with them). It certainly is at the same level as some of those.

This may be a kids show that CR got some reason

"Kids show" doesn't imply it has to be shit. People who make shit shows because "it's for kids, kids watch anything" are a disgrace in my book .

Little kids shows tend to have little budgets, unless there's a merchandise campaign with it. This one makes me wonder if the producers had a team it wanted to train on CGI and this was the outcome. Tots are good test boards - they don't write in to complain and most parents don't care about the quality as long as the show doesn't cross moral borders.

Question: Do prefectures / districts / cities pay to have their areas “featured” in anime? I’ve been wondering about this.

clearly they are gonna throw all their budget at the last episode or two and create a self-subversive magnum opus, the likes of which will revolutionize the anime industry. my pick for anime of the season so far tbh. the lighting style they use is on par with the likes of studio shaft— can't wait for more anime-chans!

Sometimes. For instance, "No-Rin" (on FUNimation) was subsidized by Gifu Prefecture; as part of "propaganda campaign" to get young people togo Harvest Moon mode. About an idol girl going undercover in agricultural community in order to hide from world/something.


An NHK conspiracy, I tell u.......

Thanks for the info. I was trying to reason out the budget (lack thereof) for this anime. Keeps my eyes open for others that may do the same. Makes me wonder if the Kagawa Prefecture invested heavily in Poco's Udon World. That series is top-knotch. FFF is embarassing in comparison.

Episode 2

And the WTF nature of this show continues. It feels just like Naria Girls all over again, except that the animation isn't nearly as tough on the eyes. So those mushroom girls are all chatting about New Year's traditions in Japan and end up dancing. I wanted to see all five girls, but I don't feel that it is worth it to continue on just for that.

I was one of the few who actually enjoyed Naria Girls to some degree. It looked absolutely terrible, but some of the weird improv humour based around anime and magical girl tropes was funny. This show may look slightly better but it's completely lacking the humour that made Naria Girls at least watchable.

Why did Crunchyroll think this was okay to put out? It boggles the mind. Sure, some of the other shows are really bad, but the worst of the worst looks like gold in comparison to whatever this is.

Shame on the producers for subjecting the audience to this garbage.

Ok so being on vacation for a week n a half I'm trying to catch up and see _this_ has a second season? Out of morbid curiosity I watched episode 14, or S2E1 or whatever you want to call it. Same animation: disjointed limbs, visible clipping, and the like. But the story so far is apparently Japanese folktales, the first two episodes being the woodcutter and the crane thing.

It's still unwatchable. But it's odd, and I want to know more about it. How and/or why did CR get this? All I can think of is something like contractual obligations. But this is done by a group called 6Jigen (http://6da.jp/) who was apparently involved in production for both gdgd and SeHa Girls. Neither of those were as bad, but this seems to be wholly original. Still unlikely to watch it.
