Pet shop owner's daughter Chika Tokorozawa spends every waking hour with her dog, Rin Tin Tin, who repays her love by watching over her while she sleeps. Based on the manga in Young Sunday magazine by Maki Otsubo, who is better known in the manga world for Mr. Cinema.
This long buried hunk of garbage was recommended by a friend. I had never heard of this series until recently and apparently neither has anyone else...because MAL has no reviews available for this series. Until now!
There is a dog with human level intelligence named Rin Tin Tin who lives in a kennel in Japan. So is this going to be a parody of the old Rin Tin Tin TV show from the 1950s? Well...not exactly. This Rin Tin Tin is a degenerate pervert that lusts after the daughter of the Kennel owner. If that wasn't stupid enough, EVERY supporting character urges the daughter to "let
nature take its course" and have sex with the dog! This 1991 OVA is a combination between a D-tier Furry fanfiction and a horrendous comedy in which almost none of the jokes land! Rin Tin Tin is voiced by a stand up comedian who was apparently fairly popular in Japan during the early 1990s. I'm not positive if his entirely flat, deadpan delivery is because he is Japan's Bill Murray or if he just REALLY didn't want to be in this anime, but desperately needed the money. He had never been in an anime before and after this he never appeared in one again! The girl though is an industry veteran that also played Yahiko in Rurouni Kenshin. RIP childhood!
So basically we have an uncomfortable and unfunny comedy about an anthropomorphic dog played deadpan by a comedian who doesn't want to be there. This is the anime version of Oh Heavenly Dog with Chevy Chase!!!
The plot just kind of meanders for about 40 minutes and suddenly ends without any real resolution. A perverted teacher is introduced to compete with the perverted dog, but everyone ends up getting bitten by snakes for some reason. The dog assures us that the snakes weren't venomous after he gets bit in the dick and the anime just kind of stops! My head hurts just thinking about this piece of shit!
This anime never received an English dub fortunately. The Japanese version with English subs is available on Youtube. The only other existing dub I could find is oddly enough a Russian dub that was done by 1 person. The Japanese audio is weird not only because it was CLEARLY ripped from VHS, but because the Japanese comedian playing the dog sounds different than everyone else. I think he couldn't be bothered to show up at the studio and recorded his lines on a Sony Walkman from the 1980s. I'm serious...I'm pretty sure that's what happened.
This anime is painfully stupid, but for some reason I didn't feel it deserved a 1 because at least 1 or 2 of the jokes almost warranted a chuckle. I also enjoyed the comedian's deadpan delivery of his catchphrase: "hump hump hump" repeated ad nauseam throughout the series! I have no idea how an anime this terrible has escaped the public's attention, but if you enjoy the worst of the worst, you need to witness this atrocity for yourself!

I have several questions regarding this obscure, little OVA, most of them starting with the word "who".
Who was the intended audience, who came up with the premise, and who greenlit the idea in the first place? It blows my mind that this exists in the first place. The premise reads like a bad joke, like the bizarre ramblings of some sleep deprived writer.
Our story follows Rin Tin TIn a talking dog that desperately wants to fuck his human owner, Chika (No you didn't misread that). Along
the way, the dog battles for her heart against other potential male suitors, such as: The local school rapists, a misunderstanding beach resort employee, and an old, cradle-robbing math teacher. This OVA is trashy from the get go, and it never lets up.
My complaints so far could be overlooked if the show was at all funny and/or entertaining, but sadly, it doesn't even have that much going for it. It is painfully unfunny, and most of the jokes it throws at you fall flat on their face. This is mainly due to the fact that most jokes revolve around Rin Tin TIn's infatuation with Chika, which come off as really creepy.
It's all downhill from there, as the animation is abhorrent, and the voice acting and music are irredeemable.
Kennel Tokorozawa is quite something, the only reason for me to actually come across this anime was that this is an anime (and sadly the only one) where Jimmy Onishi voice acts a character.
For that reason I pretty much instantly had to watch it as it would just be too hilarious to see an anime with Jimmy as a voice actor in it.
The story is quite something however, promoting bestiality in such a way is well not really heard off these days.
But knowing Jimmy's backstory and with that he has an enhanced smell plus that he is overly perverted, I pretty much think they
cast the perfect role for Jimmy!
All in all it's an old and unknown anime, with a rather mediocre story and characters that pretty much only resolves around ecchiness, but it was still very enjoyable to see the anime and especially the live action part special that came with it!
