Two little claymen get into a tussle after the red Akairo-kun plays a trick on the yellow Kiiro-kun while he is sharing a peaceful moment with a pig.

I think this is the most underrated meme anime of all time. Even though this is a clay stop-motion animation and it has no sound, the events in the story and the clay figures itself are preety well done. In my opinion this is the best part of the series (there is also Battle of Clay 2, and the 2019 remake, but they are both not great, and I'll probably write a review of them as well). I can definitely see why it has a very low score, but in my opinion it doesn't deserve to be one of the lowest rated anime on MAL. ...

this is by far the greatest piece of fiction ever published to the online web-space. I am so honored to be a part of this historic treasure, and I think the plot to this anime rivals competitors like Attack on Titan and Keeping up With the Kardashians. I loved every second of this and the combat was unmatched. I re-watched this masterpiece again today as it was the dying wish of my pet hermit crab. The animation is flawless, the soundtrack made me cry, and the characters are very loveable. Love how the dog comes back at the end. 10/10

Want to waste 1 minute and 28 seconds of your life? Then this is for you

Battle of Clay is apparently a homemade video some guy did about some pieces of clay which are then formed into a couple of claymen. We then get to see them rolling around and fighting each other... in stop motion. So this isn't really 2D at all, it's actually live action (if you can count stop motion as "live" that is)

There is no semblance of a story whatsoever, they just attack each other with their fists, hammers and a ball of tape. There was also a pig involved somewhere along ...
