It's a little surprising that one of the most meta and self aware shows in the anime industry could be one that isn't even conventionally animated. Tesagure! Bukatsumono is, at first glance, a horribly CG animated moe slice of life show, otaku-targeted, made simply for the sake of money. Never mind that it has surprisingly high sales for such a low budget production (its second season is currently outselling Kill la Kill); sales only indicate popularity, which never means much about quality anyway.

Or does it? If you look past the CG animation and watch through the first episode, you will discover right away that this read more

"Oh no, another CG monstrosity that shames the essence of anime.", is more or less what I thought when came upon Tesagure! Bukatsumono. Why? I don't know, maybe the crude novelty of it all and the delicate standards being broken put me in shock. But from death came life and that's what this anime is.

Tesagure! Bukatsumono is a very meta piece. It shows you the cliches and tropes prevalent in many anime and manga while playing with new(新しい yes, you will hear this a lot) and interesting and lewd and gay and sometimes violent ways things like cute girls falling from the sky, or read more

Once upon a time, if you had come up to me and said that a bunch of Japanese guys made an “anime” entirely using MikuMikuDance starring a bunch of popular female voice actresses pretending to be high school girls who are pretending to be in a non-existent after-school club but are really just doing comedy routines from Japanese variety shows and you told me that this was actually genuinely funny you would have elicited from me an incredulous guffaw followed, perhaps, by a slap on the shoulder and a hearty “come off it, mate.” But, no, Tesagure is that show and incredulous me would have read more

They had a unique premise of an animated radio show but by failing to maintain the fourth wall the execution fails to surpass an average conversation. The characters play the weird sports they come up with, but only thrice.

The animation and sound are as below par as you'd expect. The characters have personalities but not much.

The best I can say about this series is that it's watchable. The worst I can say about it is that it breaks the fourth wall (which is to say, breaking the fourth wall is a really bad thing to do in almost all cases). Don't watch this series.
