    You will either like this, or you won't.
    Because it's amazingly surreal. It is many other things as well; Cute, fun, and sweet - But what it is primarily is surreal. It's as if someone watched "Yellow Submarine" while high, and then decided to make a tellytubbies/Devil survivor mashup that was kid-friendly.

    This is not mahou-shoujo
    I think that this series is very polarizing. For me, it harkens back to surrealist series like FLCL, though admittedly lighter in tone. It's a very bizarre trip through a visually stunning world. I like that the characters are riffs on arch-types and that the series isn't moe or fanservice-y. Honestly, if you're ready to suspend disbelief and enjoy the oddness, this show is fun to watch from ...

    Fresh art style, annoying characters
    The art style is nice and fresh, but the plot is really dry and boring. Characters don't feel real and indulge in an excess of pretentious, ego-inflating dialog. If the dialog was written more realistically, and not like a jumbled mess, I may have liked this more.

    I love everything about this
    Super cute artstyle, super cute characters, super cute setting, super cute storyline, super cute everything! You'll know almost as soon as you start watching if this show is for you, and if it is, you'll love it. However, if you're looking for some dark, psychological, deep anime this probably isn't for you. If you're looking for cute girls doing cute things in a cute world, click play already!

    Wonderfully Weird, Weirdly Wonderful!
    So, some alien critters show up and start stealing Earth's cultural treasures, prompting three high school girls to fight back and defend their own cultural oasis, Harajuku. Oh, and they get a bit of extra help from a young (alleged) escaped alien abductee and her talking pet fried shrimp. Yes, her talking pet fried shrimp. Keeping up? Because I love this, all of it! You see, I get tired of ...

    Simplistic sweetness
    I feel like this series is a statement about the recent changes in Harajuku. There has even been talk of Harajuku dying, as small, eccentric shops are being closed and replaced by international chains. Various artists have already made appeals for people to continue living in the colorful and creative Harajuku spirit - even if Harajuku, as we know it, ceases to exist - and now we have an anime ...

  • I've Got Nothing For This Title... That's How Bored I Was
    **Dropped at Episode 3**
    Very few anime can leave me both bored and confused at the same time, and this is one of those. I honestly don't have much to say because that's about all I've got for this one. The animation is decent enough, but nothing that impressive and mainly pastel color palette isn't really my cup of tea . The characters aren't that interesting enough for me to care about and the ...

  • Give it a chance with this in mind...
    Tho i gave a 4 star review, let me get certain things out the way that will portray its weaknesses:
    -Art style is questionable. Its cute and bubbly but lacks any depth beyond the main characters.
    - the voice acting is just OK. lacks subsistence and when they talk about difficult topics they seem to go un-phased at times with the art not exactly helping what their expression should be like in a ...

  • A fun watch, full of wonder
    I enjoyed it, the characters, the action and style, and I found it to be positive but a little repetitive in its message. I like shows that tap my imagination and get me wondering and thinking about creativity, so this succeeded in that. If anything, I would like to see more shows like this, but without the aliens and more focus on how they operate their business and grow as individuals and as ...

    Why did Crunchyroll post this?
    Very colorful, kinda magic-girls-fight-space-monsters in freaky future Tokyo. I know that I'm not the target viewer. I'm also, not sure what crowd this series was aimed at, but I hope they got away. One important thing to mention: the mascot thingy is a sentient tempura fried shrimp. I guess the remaining fuzzy-cat-dog-rabbit-aardvark-jackalopes were copyrighted.
