Onigiri thrusts its players into mystical Japan, a land filled with mythical creatures of Japanese legend. Starting as a lone Oni, players fight against the malevolent influence of the Kamikui as their miasma spreads over the land. 8 NPCs, each with their own distinct personality and skills, ally themselves with the player to help build a legend, and quell the evil that has arisen. As you grow stronger together, so do the bonds binding you to each other.

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

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

Not big stuff, each episode is about 4 minutes long with about 1 minute being the opening, but I did laugh at some points.

-The story is almost non-existent, there's the universe (based on the game, which I enjoy a lot may I say), and not much more than that. One thing that I didn't like about it was the lack of direction, because it seems like the story could go somewhere, but they shoot it to random places, so you feel lost and just "what is happening and why?". Other bad thing is that is TOO rushed, but I won't judge that since it's an read more
