Unlike others who wrote their Urahara reviews after seeing only two episodes, I decided to wait until the halfway point of the series to write my review (isn't it interesting how all the low-score reviews have seen only 2-4 episodes?)

Urahara isn't for everyone, clearly. Many are offput by its unique and colorful art style, saying it "doesn't look like anime". Some are frustrated with its repetitive monster-of-the-week nature, a common structure in magical girl shows, or frustrated with its slow-moving plot.

Personally, I think Urahara is a masterpiece. The art is absolutely wonderful and mesmerising to look at (the only part I don't like are the read more

I honestly have no idea why I stuck on watching this, knowing that the 3 episode guideline has already broke down since Episode 1, and am feeling like now's a good time to drop this travesty of an abomination.

Have you watched Akiba's Trip The Animation? (Spring 2017 season)

Take that, add the CGDCT moe factor with the sugar, spice and everything nice, you'll get Urahara. One obvious thing to get out of the way, there is ABSOLUTELY no originality towards the storytelling (well, aside from what the creators intend to do anyways).

Moe girls? Check.
Insane amounts of food just to get their attention? Check.

Art attack: the anime.

If you try to judge this show from a purely technical standpoint, you'd probably conclude it's not that good; The art style is rough and the animation is anything but fluid. It looks low-budget, and it may very well be low-budget, but I feel like from a design standpoint, it absolutely works. It's an aesthetic that works wonderfully with with the premise, themes and messages within Urahara, specifically the positive view it has on the process of creating art as means of expression rather than as a laborious process to achieve a high technical standard for other people to consume.

Imagine Kemono Friends but replace animals with Line stickers as inspiration.

This is an anime designed by an engineer to answer questions such as
What's the lowest frame rate you can cover with cute static things?
How low can the stakes be before people give up? How little violence gives the idea of "victory" and "defeat"?
How much consistency does "cuteness" need to be read as such? Is it enough to keep a saturation level and just use any color instead of a designed color pallet?
How little character development can you pass per episode while still giving the idea of an overarching plot?
How much of the character is read more
