In the writing of this review, I noticed one big problem, spoilers. As you can probably guess from my rating of this show there is a whole lot going on here and there is so much more of it than what one would expect at first glance. The issue is, it’s hard to convey all of that without going into what happens later on. And so what I can do is tell you what I think this show does well, while sometimes the why will be somewhat obscured, I will do my best to convey what I can. The main thing that you should know read more

Note: This review contains minor spoilers.

Urahara is a highly entertaining joyride rich in craze and color. However, its inexperienced staff fails to blend its creative concepts in a cohesive fashion.

Set in Harajuku, the show does a great job at adopting the district’s zany culture. It celebrates art and creativity, both of which are sought after by the Scoopers - the alien invaders threatening to steal all of Earth’s culture and creativity. What initially seems like trivial tale of weekly mahou shoujo-esque monster-of-the-week turns out to be a commentary on what constitutes creativity and the relation of artist and popularity. The transition between the two may read more

But one thing many artists have in common is their emotional connection to their work; the anxiety and self-doubt that comes when that thing you made didn't come as good as you hoped or when you spend a long time on something only for nobody to notice it, but also the sense of accomplishment read more

Expressing yourself can be difficult. There is the chance that nobody will notice your expressions or the chance that somebody might be irritated by them. Everybody has a different experience, but these moments of self-expression allow one's creativity to come through. Even if you are inspired by others, the end product is something that is unique to you. In Urahara, the idea of creativity is explored through three girls in Harajuku.

The anime starts off with an episodic format where the PARK girls encounter Scoopers and then proceed to take them out by using the amatsumara – items that are the physical embodiment of imagination. In read more
