Synopsis

Once upon a time, a little doggy poo lived on the side of a road. He felt all alone in this world. He believed that nobody needed him for anything, and that he had no purpose in life. If only Doggy Poo had a reason for being, then he wouldn't give up on his dream to be useful to this world. One day, Doggy Poo meets a lovely dandelion sprout. Will she explain his purpose in life? Will she help him make his dream come true?

Doggy poo is a very heartwarming story, and from the low rating I feel like I have to defend this anime. I would compare this to Clannad After Story because of the way the child was abandoned and the touching story.

First of all this anime is very different and although silly this is a very original story. It follows the life of an abandoned pile of poop. You basically experience its life and prejudice.

I feel like there is a lot of metaphor in this about today's society and racism. Everyone treats poo differently which is very depressing. There is a lot of imagery in read more

I must say, I think the bad ratings really don't show the true anime.

Story: 7

I would give it an 8 or 9 if there was more action to it, but what action could you give to a pile of dog poop.

Art: 7

It's not bad, It's just not regular anime art. It's clay models. Still though, the scenery isn't half baked or incomplete. It looks as if they actually put time and effort into it.

Sound: 8

You can hear the wind rustling the leaves and the laughter and footsteps of the children. They could put more, but it was enough to understand.

Character: 9

Alright, go ahead and read the title.
It's not exactly the most alluring name, but it definitely was an attention-catching one, even if it's not for traditionally pleasing reasons. I went into this Korean clay animation short not knowing what to expect. It seemed it was either going to be unintentional hilarity or a heartwarming tale (as others have stated). Ultimately, I found it to be strange and underwhelming mixture of the two. It is however, not exactly a piece of canine excrement, at least in terms of quality, despite the assuring name.

Doggy Poo is the main character, and it is also a clump of read more

Anime: Naruto: Takigakure no Shitou - Ore ga Eiyuu Dattebayo!
The "Naruto: The Lost Story - Mission: Protect the Waterfall Village" special has parts where it focused on accidentally stepping on doggie poo whilst the movie "Doggy Poo" has a piece of doggie poo as the main character.

It is interesting to see doggie poo portrayed in various ways in different media. It is a good idea to get the whole spectrum of what doggie can be, not just for individuals, but also for society.

I know this may sound insane, but they are similar.
Both anime attempt to make a change in the watcher, or to teach you something. They have different animation types. They are both also great stories!

They are both very heartwarming, emotional, and extremely serious stories about life and what it means to truly live.

Both are about abandoned children and they both have a touching story. You will shed manly tears by the end of both of them.
