Koni (whose character is based on the famous Sumo-wrestler) and his gang have lots of crazy and incoherent adventures in their town. From fighting with their "Lovely-Teacher" and dealing with Samurai fish, to confirming if "The Armored-Guy's" wife has an affair and saving the world, Koni, High, Moro, Nari and Afro, the Afro-dog, do the craziest and funniest things to have fun.
Firstly, i must state that i watched this anime with spanish dubs (latin) and this is important as it was obvious that most of the jokes were changed, and made reference to latin culture and mexican primarly i think.
well, there was not a continued story, it was more like a sitcom of 6 minutes episodes, but each mini-storie was great and really funny and intelligent.
Most of the characters were draw very simply, "extras" being just a grey body with eyes. And well the artwork was similar to that of crayon shin-chan but less ugly, often joking about that by drawing the characters in the more
common anime style when they are acting cool.
All i can say about the japanese sound is that the opening was really funny and fit perfectly the anime. More than that i can't say but for the ones who know spanish i recommend the dubs, it was the best spanish dubbing i've seen.
there are lots of characters in this show and none of them is boring. you have the four main characters high (a energetic guy who's always on fire, and has the personality of a leader but is not listened buy his mates ), nari (a millionaire that loves circular things and solves everything with money), moro ( the girl of the group who is always trying to be sexy and... nothing more really) and koni (the mysterious main character with the mysterious house).
some of the side characters are a samurai fish, a talking tv, a teacher that has a thing for koni, an old woman's hand, and a talking dog.
i laughed out loud all the time with this series and you can see each chapter a thousand times and still laugh the same way.
First of all, I reccomend to watch this anime if you know Spanish and if you know a little of latin and mexicain culture. I did not watch this anime with subs, so I can't tell you how it was in Japan, but in latin america, when this anime was airied, it was amazing. The dubbing is outstanding and the jokes are extremely funny, sort of like what happened to The Simpsons (Latin dubbing is better than original).
This is one of those comedy animes divided into three segments of 7 minutes, each one with a different story. I can tell you: The first segment is
about ordinary life (sitcom), the second is sort of like romantic comedy, and the third is all about parody. There is no main plot, and the main characters don't have a goal per se.
The characters are memorable. Koni, the main protagonist, is a obese twelve-year-old kid, and still, he is the most famous person in the world, the strongest person in the world, and the incarnation of all virtues in history.
High, his buddy, is eccentric, hyperactive, and he starts a fire wherever he is.
Nari, another buddy, is the richest boy in the world, he can buy anything that was, is or will be in this universe.
And there is the moe-sexy-girl, Moro, who is in love of Koni. She is a exhibitionist, causing nosebleed to almost every human but Koni.
There is no Evil Castrating Dark Horrible Powerful antagonist, but what could be the bad guy, is the boss of an organization called The Bad Guys, and he has two sidekicks. He is known for dating the wife of the armed-man, called "Tal Iván", whose name is a pun of the Talibans.
The art is not so amazing but simple: The extras are drawn with cyan and magenta colors, and there is one character that is a purple man with golden sort-of-like glasses.
The BGM of this anime is PERFECT for this anime, I'm still criying I can't found it on the internetz.
Anyways, I don't think you'll enjoy this anime if you are not latin or if you don't know spanish and don't know about mexicain culture. But if you do, like me, you'll find this anime extremely funny, and you can rewatch it forever.
NOTE: This review is based only on the latin-dubbed version. I did not watch it in japanese, but I don't think it was bad in Japan.
I guess most of us watched this with Spanish (Latin American) dub, then! Most jokes and dialogues changed, but it was for good. No idea how it is in Japanese, but I guess it's full of Japanese jokes and popular culture.
Either way, this anime is one of the most hilarious I've ever watched, it's so full of energy, and all characters are very very likable. I wish it lasted longer though, since they promised us a 2nd season that got canceled. It's funny to think this is way more popular overseas than in its own original country.
One of the very very very few times I'll
recommend any dub. If you know Spanish well and think you can understand all the Mexican jokes (I'm not even Mexican and I got most of them!), please watch it. Every episode has 3 short sub episodes, so watching it doesn't get heavy at all.
Oh, and the rewatch value is very very very very high. I've watched some episodes like 5 times, and I still find them hilarious.
Story: This lacks any form of coherent story, so I can't really give this a high score... but believe me, the craziness is what matters here.
Art: Personally as a kid I loved it! And I still do. It fits perfectly with this anime, but I guess sometimes the drawing style gets a little lazy. Oh, but the character design is amazing!
Sound: I can't really remember well the BGM, but the opening and endings are great. Energetic opening and calm ending, I really liked that.
Character: The characters are the best, they're all so likable. They're all so weird and have their extremely sick obsessions. You'll definitely feel more normal watching this.
Enjoyment: If I could give this a 20, I would.
Overall: Great piece overall for everyone who loves the randomness of this world!
