I watched Sweat Punch after hearing good things about one of the stories called Kigeki. Basically it's a series of short stories from the same studio. Hoping to find very good artwork and storytelling, the only thing i found after watching all of these stories was a big, big disappointment, in all aspects.

The first story in the package is called Professor Dan Petory's Blues, it's a story about some doll scientist talking about various things like color of the planet or why ufo's fly in zigzags. It was suppose to be a comedy, but the jokes i found used in it only made me feel read more

Kigeki is in fact a brilliant old dark comedy before comedy of this day actually meant funny. Its a Dark Comedy in itself where it precieves one thing but is in fact another thing. In this series they are short so it would take you maybe an hour or 2 maybe not even that long to watch the full series but it is a defiantly must see series.
It draws you into its illusion the first second you start to watch it and it keeps your attention until it finally ends. This was a very amazing series to me I have never seen anything like it read more

This review is for Kigeki (Comedy).

Wow. I don't really know what to say. It's good, that much is certain. It's basically a dark fairy tale about a swordsman and his hobby, and the little girl who finds out about it. I really can't say much more than that without spoiling anything, since it's so short. Just go watch it, there really isn't any excuse since it's just 10 minutes. The animation is very breath taking, in fact it is hauntingly beautiful, and appears as though it was shot through an old film camera, you can see all the artifacts read more

(This is a review for Kigeki/Comedy)


After encountering several one-shots created by Studio 4°C, I told myself that I will not be going anywhere near their works again. I am not a fan of theirs, to say the least. But when I stumbled upon the cover image for Kigeki, I couldn't help but get drawn to it. Unable to fight my own curiosity, I decided to give it a try. How much could ten minutes possibly hurt even if I ended up hating it?

-STORY- 10/10

During such a short time period, the story, or rather an excerpt from it, was very well thought out and beautifully presented. read more
