The red clayman is bored... and apparently, he has nothing better to do than bother the yellow clayman.

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 read more

Battle of Clay (BoC) is the first short film made by Nagao Takena, that silly mate that has a wierd affinity with the clay.

With a humor similar to that in the Looney Toons, BoC is about a red clayman and a yellow clayman who fight in a cartoonish way. A dog is there, too.

The animation is... poor (after all, Takena made this film when he was in high school), the characters are very simple (the red man is plump, the yellow one looks like one of those heads in the Easter Island, and the puppy is... cute n_n), and there's read more

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. read more

Rate of 4
art film has the choice with and without sound

Hardly a story. A joker that starts a fight.

Nicely animated for clay production. the transitions were smooth

The approach was comical not action based. Sound effects needs tweaking in terms of audio level.

No background. Yes, characters showed some emotion but that is all i can say. Is the clay color of the characters supposed to matter?

Only worth your time and patience if you appreciate clay animation. Be warned this not for deep thinkers for you will find your self riddled with unanswered questions.
