I would like to say first and foremost - fuck this show. Don't watch it. Its mean spirited, morally empty and without a message.

You know anthology shows like The Twilight Zone or Alfred Hitchcock Presents usually give a scenario where you are waiting for a character to "get theirs" or to see where a single mistake can lead you. The setups and endings are different - you could be following a character you want to see succeed or one you want to see fail, and the supernatural aspects they sometimes encounter vary wildly and the shows make good use of plot twists to throw you read more

TL;DR – An oddity even among the growing number of anime reboots, The Laughing Salesman offers a darkly comic, pessimistic &, unfortunately, a little bit dated journey through the underside of Japanese society & human nature.

The last few years have seen a growing trend for older series getting new adaptations. From action classics like JoJo's Bizarre Adventures to children's shorts like Bono Bono, an ever growing number of titles are being given new prequels, sequels, remakes, reboots or simply getting an adaptation years after the source material finished publication. This goes double for The Laughing Salesman, adapting a manga by Fujiko Fuko A that read more

I would like to start out by saying that this show is not as bad as people make it out to be. Each episode there are two people visited by the Laughing Salesman and they end up receiving some sort of punishment for their greediness.

The episodes are not meant to be watched back to back. If you binge-watch the show, it will get real repetitive real quick. On a weekly basis, this anime works. I looked forward to each episode. While all the cases provided may not be relatable, they do show the greedy side of humans. (I especially loved episode 11).

Warau Salesman New began way back in 1968. It was written by Fujiko Fujio A. It's actually had multiple anime, visual novel games & a short-lived drama. The first anime ran for over a hundred episodes, but we're talking about the newer one today. Because that's the one I was asked to review. Both anime have the same studio, Shin-Ei Animation. Which is best known for the long running Doraemon franchise. So, how does this series hold up? Let's take a look at it and see.

Story:

There is no over-arcing narrative to this series. Rather, it's an episodic work where each episode contains two read more
