Unless you have read the manga this is based on, it is senseless and incomprehensible. They've taken a very dark, ambitious story and turned it into three minute skits that remind me of Hetalia. When I heard this was coming out, I was excited. The original story is on the same line as MPD-Psycho, and if it had been done well, it would have been a dark and brooding work rated R for violence and sexual situations. This anime adaptation is so far off the mark from the original that I can't even recommend it to fans of the manga. Very disappointing.

I'm a huge fan of the Litchi Hikari Club manga, so when I heard they were doing an anime, I was thrilled. Unforutnately, I was disappointed to learn that it was going to be a series of short comedy sketches. Still, I gave it a try and found that it wasn't as terrible as I originally anticipated. It was cute and silly, at best. I would recommend that fans of the manga watch this, if they think they'd enjoy a spoof, but wouldn't recommend this to anyone who hasn't read the manga, as it would be too difficult to follow.

I agree with each of the other reviews, but I feel I must mention an element not brought up in any of 'em. That is to say, the humor that is thrown at you in the anime actually makes the manga feel less intense. The fact that we can now make fun of the story makes me happy and if anything, more comfortable with the contents between the front and back pages we've already read. (For the majority of us who started with the manga first.) All of the characters remain in clear cut stereotypes, but what a gift it is to be able read more

I basically stumbled upon this by scanning what crunchyroll had to offer on my day off. I had no idea what it was but the art style and the plot synopsis (which was really of the manga) sounded interesting so I figured I'd check it out.

What I found was something I enjoyed, it was funny and dark and while I felt like I didn't fully know what was going on, I was interested in trying to follow it. It sort of felt like I had stumbled upon an inside joke, that while it was fun to watch as an outsider, I knew I was read more

What could've been. If you want to see how you fail an anime adaption then watch these two anime. Granted I've never read Pupa but I have heard that the anime mixes up events in the manga making it incomprehensible. In Litchi DE Club's case, they turned one of the best manga ever, which was filled with psychological and horror, into your typical mediocrity comedic shorts anime. It would've been better for the world if these two anime never existed.

Dark comedy with simple but outrageous animation and pictures, mentoined similar topics like sexuality, aberrations. + using metal/rock music

They are not identical, however, the jokes and the artstyle are similar at times.
