Afro Ken is a Japanese character created by the San-X company, which creates other anime-style characters such as Kogepan. He is a dog with a rainbow-coloured afro. He is innocent and blameless and always in a good mood. Afro Ken is always willing to try new things. Afro Ken is attracted to objects that look like he does. His hair changes to look like these things as he gets close to them.

There is an Afro Ken Family Tree with other dog characters who have outrageous names, such as Techno Ken, Funky Ken, Lord Ken, Super Afro Ken, and Normal Ken. Unlike the others, Normal Ken does not have wild hair.

I don't usually write reviews, but Afro-ken was such a life changing anime I felt the need to. It opens to a dog wandering in the forest, what a silly little fellow! But suddenly, that dog has an afro. I won't write much more about the plot, I don't want to spoil it, but this was easily a top 10 best anime for me.

This anime was very good, and the theme song was quite the ...

Afro-Ken is a 30 minute OVA and it utilises that 30 minutes to it's fullest potential.

Afro-Ken includes short "stories" that are from 10 seconds to a couple of minutes long. Each "story" has a different vibe to it and almost none of them are related to each other.

The animation is done with CG (computer graphics) and because of that doesn't look that appealing. The OVA was made in 2001 so the technology wasn't that advanced so no big suprise there. For the time it was decent.

The soundtrack has one banger song and the others are forgetable. The voice actor they hired for the narrator ...

Afro-Ken is the story about a dog with an Afro. I don't need to go much further for you can see the plot would definitely not be good with those two elements. It is about him trying new things. And having an Afro. This is one majestic Afro, which brings us to the review.

Story- There really is no story to this that matters, if there even was, it would make it worse, considering you can't have that good of a story in a one episode ova. That is why it gets a four. As I said, a story in a one episode show is pointless, ...
