Ancient Japan is under attack by powerful beings called "Kamikui," and it is up to the "Oni" and his band of eight beautiful female warriors to stop them. Each of these girls have unique skills, abilities, and personalities. They partner themselves with the Oni, Jin, to stop the miasma of darkness sweeping across Japan. Onigiri follows the escapades of Jin and his merry companions as they strengthen their bonds and fend off the demonic invasion.

I went into this anime expecting a lot less than I walked away with. Don't let it's current low MAL score fool you as it initially fooled me, this anime may well be worth your time (the 50 minutes it would take to watch the entire series).
Now I admit I am probably this show's exact target demographic, while I no longer play Onigiri, there was a time when I was quite active and really into the game. I really like the characters, art style & general tone of the show. The style of comedy they went for fits the game and it's characters so read more

Onigiri. The short mmorpg battle anime that surrounds several girls that continue to fight against the supposedly evil Kamikui. In all honesty, before watching this anime, don't expect tons of intense battles, though there are a few. It's more like a random rpg style slice of life anime.

Story 7/10: Not much really. There are several mini stories/arcs in the anime that usually last one episode. It's a slice of life anime with no plot (sort of like One Punch Man).

Art 9/10: Average art. It wasn't amazing, but it wasn't bad. I liked it, and the art style suits the anime for what it is.

Sound 8/10: read more

I'm pretty hardcore about anime, especially ones based on video games. Because of this, I try to give just about every anime I find a chance, including this. I've never played the game, so perhaps I'm not being entirely fair with this review, but these are just my honest opinions with the anime which may or may not change over time.

First thing you need to know is that these episodes are only about 3-4 minutes long, so you can knock all of the episodes out in about an hour. May or may not be for the best in this case.

An anime short being meta about it being an anime adaptation from an Online MMO?

Onigiri really follows a meta comedy with the main cast of Onigiri and changes genre alot at the same time.

The comedy being meta is taken as either repetitive or funny for the most part, the repetitiveness comes from the character gags but where it is funny is when the comedy takes focus on the typical MMO gameplay and then brings in a punchline and those episodes were the best part of the comedy.

Onigiri has a habit of changing genres from time to time, from typical romance, idols, tragic romance turned read more
