Gokicha is a small cockroach girl who has moved from Kanto to Hokkaido. She hopes the people in Hokkaido, who are less used to her kind, will become her friends. Despite her best intentions, however, she always seems to find herself on the bottom of someone's shoe or covered in insecticide. As Gokicha and her friend Chaba try to make it on the streets, it becomes apparent that the lives of cockroaches are full of peril.

This was one of the most simple anime I've ever seen, but it's nevertheless heart warming. The story's about an anthropomorphic cockroach girl who wants to befriend humans, but gets treated as all cockroaches get treated by humans. The episodes are very short, each about 8 minutes long, there are only 2 episodes released so far, and the animation is basic.

This is a show which could have been really good, given the kind of care and funding other shows get. The premise is simple but easily enough to fill a twelve-episode series, as opposed to the short two episodes we got. The animation is janky and underproduced, but at its core all the problems being faced by this series are the result of factors outside of its control, which is oddly fitting given the theme.

The factors within its control are all well-done. The show manages to be emotionally heavy despite its brevity, and the main character is interesting and amicable. There's ...

So, here we have Gokicha!! Cockroach girls. I expected a lot more from this, even after seeing that it was 'ongoing' apparently. This is a very short anime (16 minutes) but it is really heart-warming, hence why I set the story so high up. However, everything else about this anime though is a general disappointment. To begin with, the animation is awful, the characters don't even move their mouths when they talk, the actions scenes are basically looped over and over. What annoyed me most though is the potential this anime had all went to waste, for example, the characters don't get developed further ...
