Pikotaro's Lullabies are quintessential Takashi Taniguchi - wry, a little clumsy and rather silly (maybe even downright stupid).

Not to be taken seriously, these 3-minute shorts offer an alternative perspective to classic fables/folktales from around the world. Aside from the opening and closing, there is minimal/no music and - true to Taniguchi's style - all sound effects are depicted by voice. The characters are often awkward and have tenuous interactions with Pikotaro (Kosaka Kazuhito), and the art is what one might find in a picture story book or web comic.

Overall, these may be great for anyone who has a penchant for pineapple apple pens, thinks read more

Pikotarou no Lullaby Lullaby is a series of shorts similar to that of Mr. Ando of the Woods or Salaryman Man.

The premise of which is different bedtime stories being told to Pikotarou of PenPinappleApplePen fame.

Each episode has the same opening and closing which takes up around half of the 3 minute runtime.

The art is simple and humorous and the animation is limited but what these Takashi Taniguchi animations lack in art they make up for in humor.

It has some hilarious comedic timing and while the episodes vary somewhat in quality they are great to binge with a few friends.

Each episode is about 3 minutes, including the very short opening and ending. First, let's start with the art : there's no animation whatsoever. It's just a still image, with the characters barely "shaking" when they have a line to say.
Sometimes, the camera zooms in on the character's face, but that's about it. Nothing really changes.

The narrator does all the voices. So Pikotarou does himself and either one or two other characters on screen. His range is limited. Even though we can leave this to humour.

Is it funny or enjoyable? To be honest I would not recommend it to anyone. It looks like each read more

Pikotarou no Lullaby Lullaby is, at its core, a VERY Japanese show. I don't think it should even be considered an anime. This would be one of those shows that'd be in the intermission of a TV series.
Basically, the anime is about bedtime stories, with their very own 'Pikotarou twist' to them. Some of these short stories are globally known, so they're more entertaining to watch. However, due to the cultural boundaries of Japan, many stories have Japanese folk tale based in them, so most people wouldn't get the references implemented into them. Personally, I knew all of the stories (so far at least) so read more
