From the creator of Popee the Performer was all I needed to know about Mr. Stain on Junk Alley to give it a shot. The more time passes, the more I realise how truly original, inspired and deeply traumatising Popee was. Mr. Stain has a lot of the same stylistic choices. It’s entirely CG animated with rather creepy shiny faced character models. There’s no spoken dialogue, with only the odd musical cue and recycled sound bites used. Each episode is only 5 minutes long and features some truly bizarre imagery. The big difference between the two is while Popee is about the darker side of read more

Mr. Stain on Junk Alley consists of 14 stand-alone episodes that each tell a short story entirely through action. Each story generally revolves something that Stain finds in the said junk alley and how it affects everyone within the junk alley. The stories are all told clearly and are quite inventive and fun to watch play out.

Art will most likely be a love it or hate it relationship as it is entirely in CGI. The CGI is clear and the series knows exactly what it wants to do with it's graphics, but sometimes they also come off as a tad creepy (particularly in the final read more

Wow is all i have to say, never would i have thought fourteen episodes of 7 minutes in length could be so enjoyable. It tells the story of Stain a man who lives like a homeless man and each episode he finds a different unique item in the pile of junk in the alley. Anything can happen from magic crayons that bring drawings into reality to robots that want to fly. The creator really did do a good job in making each unique object into something that can tell a story because you never know what will happen.

The show itself can be rather violent, pretty read more

Garakuta-doori no Stain is about an unlikable and boring homeless man who somehow has a home despite being the most obvious homeless man on the planet who lives in an alley populated by whatever random crap you can think of. As expected of a Funimation production.

The plot is fairly simple, Mr. Stain finds the thing the episode is named after and shenanigans ensue. Actually I lied, shenanigans don’t even bother ensuing. It’s more along the lines of extreme boredom ensues. How you manage to make a world as quirky as this so gut-wrenchingly unfun is a job for a team of read more
