Iroe Genma is a third-year high school student often referred to as "Elder Sister" despite her short height. This troublemaking teenager is the president of her school's Model Club, which is dedicated to building plastic models of various objects and structures, such as cars, boats, and even robots.
Joined by her two underclassmen, the violent Hazuki "Okappa" Okamoto and the rational Makina "Makimaki" Sakamaki, the small group aims to carry out their club duties but are often sidetracked by a myriad of distractions. From battles between club members to lessons on how to confess to your crush, these three schoolgirls get caught up in all sorts of wacky, and downright outrageous situations!
In under half an hour Plastic Nee-San manages to build a whole cast of characters with excellent chemistry that will have you grinning from start to finish, if at all. Even when minor characters are introduced, their context is clear and they play off the main characters without ever dominating scenes. While some might say the show is just a series of physical gags, you'll likely grow to enjoy the unique personalities of all the characters to a degree that's surprising for a series this short in duration.
Expect an above-average comedy along the lines of Nichijou, but with zero filler material and a
focus on getting to the punchline. Every moment is golden and that's one of the things that makes Plastic Nee-San excellent.
Tired of all those Anime that try and take themselves seriously, yet are so stupid that it hurts?
Tired of all those Anime that have hundreds to thousands of episodes, yet have little to no lovable and well developed characters?
Tired of all those Anime that have bad, unfunny comedy?
Tired of all those Anime that are just too long for their own good?
Watch this. Just watch it. This Anime is only twenty minutes in length, but it does much more in those twenty minutes than most Anime could do in twenty seasons. Nice, lovable characters. Funny humor. Does not take itself seriously. Keeps you entertained all
the way through. Only twenty minutes of length.
Hey you! Yes, YOU !!
Do you have a little 30 min. to spare ? Yes ? Nice.
Do you want to laugh ? Yes ? Excellent !
I have exactly what you need : Plastic Nee-san !
I'm pretty sure you're thinking ''wtf is that??'' ... No ? Eh ... ok.
Anyway, let's review this. I'm not gonna take too long for this one !
Story : 4
Story ? There's no story. The only thing you need to know is that our 3 main characters are members of a club about plastic models and ... stuff happens.
Thats pretty much it !
Art : 7
Nothing outstanding. For
a 2 min. / episodes serie i wasn't expecting much and it did the job really well ! I liked the plastic models on the girls head. c:
Sound : 7
The seiyuus has done a really good job in Plastic Nee-san. The opening and ending are nice and the music used is good enough !
Character : 9
Hooo god. In 12 episodes of 2 minutes, pretty much everyone are special and memorable ! It goes to the ''Beautiful person'' to the guy who enjoy to wear women's underwear. Of course, our main characters are also really special. Nee-san is vulgar and don't give a f-, Okappa is violent and Makimaki is pretty much that girl who has to endure these two girls.
Enjoyment : 9
It's a damn shame it's only for a total of 30 minutes. I would easily take a entire season of this, i really liked it ! Of course, it's a comedy so that type of comedy isn't for everyone but even so ... try it. The worst that could happen is that you wasted 30 minutes of your life.
Overall : 8
If i had to take the story for the final note it would have been a 7 but for this kind of show, let's just forget about the story, ok ?
Thanks for reading, and see you next time ... if i decide to review something else one day.
An elastic schizoid explosion of fun and rapid-fire humor, Plastic Nee-san is a comedic short that delivers on its promise of quick laughs and even quicker punchlines. Any given episode consists of a trio of misfits who find themselves colliding headfirst with those around them, their eccentric personalities guaranteeing comedic mishaps. These cute little girls are the embodiment of pure adrenaline and sucking down one too many sugar packets.
Due to the 2-minute runtime, Plastic Nee-san does not have time to waste on padding or slowly setting the stage. Usually, this would work against a title's favor, but for this comedic short, where the intent
was simply to get the audience to laugh, Plastic Nee-san turned this into an opportunity to strike without hesitation. This creates high-octane sight gags, slapstick moments as nutty as anything offered up by 20-minute showings, and the kind of obtuse humor that's only possible thanks to Japan's obsession with always pushing the "weird" factor to unforeseen levels.
I couldn't stop laughing, which should be the goal of any comedy. And in that regard, Plastic Nee-san was a success!
Plastic Nee-san is an anime that's fully aware of what it wants to do. A comedy that delivers humorous situations with laser-focused accuracy. Cute, to the point, and leaves you with a smile, and with a short time-window that wouldn't impede on anyone curious enough to check it out, it's an easy one to recommend as well.
Anger: a strong feeling of being upset or annoyed because of something wrong or bad; the feeling that makes someone want to hurt other people, to shout, etc. Everyone is subject to it, including anime characters. Although our favorite anime persons tend to have reactions that are amusingly extreme.
