KochinPa! is an anime series with 15-second episodes starring 3 idol characters, which has been made to advertise Pachinko machines. Each episode features a simple gag or joke.
The series has been animated using 3DCG, and has lively, colourful visuals. There's not a lot of motion and the same setting is reused throughout the series, but owing to the short run time it doesn't grow too stale.
It's very difficult to compare this to other anime owing to the exceedingly short run time. The script was written by Suguhara Souta - the writer behind gdgd Fairies and I definitely could see some similar off-the-wall humour using limited
resources. A few of the episodes gave me a good giggle.
I mainly enjoyed KochinPa! for its uniqueness, and while I don't think that it was ground-breaking as regards visuals or story, the fact it managed to do anything at all in 15 second blocks is rather impressive. I'd really only recommend this to others if you like watching series for their novelty value. If nothing else, the fact that all 12 episodes can be watched in 3 minutes (plus the time taken between videos) may be all the incentive you need.
