Parappa is just your ordinary talking dog; he enjoys spending time with his friends, listening to music, and going on adventures. Together with his friends, Parappa gets into many strange situations, all the while learning to navigate through life, get along with his friends, and pine for the girl of his dreams, Sunny Funny.

Based on an equally quirky rhythm game, Parappa the Rapper boasts a unique flat style, blasts of color, and a string of strange but charming characters. Among Parappa’s friends are an anthropomorphized blue cat, lamb, and even a flower.

Parappa's adventures range from the ordinary to the bizarre. He crosses paths with mischievous baddies, helps resolve questions of friendship and love, and even goes on trips through time itself. Nothing can change Parappa's positive outlook on life.

Preliminary (10/30 eps)
The show is adorable, as a fan of the games it was really fun to watch what the cast would do in other situations!!! Honestly my only complaint is that they don't have Lammy, I felt like she could've brought some nice moments, and that Parappa didn't even rap like he does in the games :/ Other than that, it's a very cute anime with very cute characters and it is very fun to watch!!!!! The animation is good, the voices match, and there's lots of silly enjoyable moments. I definitely recommend it :3 A lot of the episodes are very nice to watch and ...

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (11/30 eps)
Parappa the Rapper is a kids show at heart. A show made for small children on top of that. It runs like a cartoon, with a different plot each episode and no continuity. The whole series focuses on Parappa and his friends on everyday adventures. No plot, no action, no music. Just strange, everyday happenings.

The first problem with this series is the lack of trademark rap music. When I first saw the opening for this series (Very catchy, by the way), I though music would be this Anime's strong point. But no, once it started, cheesy background music were played, mixed with badly drawn crayon ...
