Rinshi!! Ekoda-chan is a fun and dark a 4-koma manga about the real (?) life of the author, a single woman in Tokyo who drifts through relationships and works at various hostess clubs and the like. Lots of commentary on "birds of prey" (moukin), girls who use their cuteness and affect stupidity in order to try to score men (against whom the author is constantly fighting).

Rinshi!! Ekoda-chan is a nice short-form anime that is in an anthology format where each episode has a different director and voice actress for the main character. This type of format in my opinion, is a good fit for anime with a shorter duration and in Rinshi!! Ekoda-chan's case it certainly helps push it above a lot of other shorts that I've watched previously.
In terms of story, there is little to none given the nature of the show but by the end of the series I think the viewer can get a sense of how a narrative involving Ekoda-chan would play out, seeing that there read more

Okay. Firstly, I completely understand people who write off this anime as trash because it is basically just a 3 minute episodic short series with a bonus 20+ mins. of interviews with the director and seiyuu regarding the process of making their episode.

That being said, I actually enjoyed watching this show (currently still on episode 4) for 2 main reasons:

1. On it's own, I think the shorts are pretty hilarious and I immediately related with and empathized with Ekoda-chan as a character. (I think that may be in part because of the strength of the source material) Even though I am nothing like her, read more

“It’s a 12-episode series and there’s a different director every episode. I’ve done a few shows like this before. But none of the did very well.” — Akitarou Daichi, episode one director of Rinshi!! Edoka-chan.

Moments later…

“That’s the thing about Rinshi!! Edoka-chan. It transcends genres.” — Akitarou Daichi

This is why modern day anime is in the toilet, people. Directors seem thoroughly unaware of their own cognitive dissonance in producing low quality anime ad infinitum. But, while the initial remark is a terrible marketing blunder, it’s still superior to Subway using a known pedophile to advertise foot-longs to the public. Speaking read more

Rinshi!! Ekoda-chan is a particularly notable show in its arrangement. Three to five minutes of animation is followed by a fifteen to twenty-minute segment of an interview with the voice actor and the director of each episode, and two to six minutes of a third segment where artists are drawing a key-frame. Twelve directors join in this project and offer various interpretations of Ekoda-chan.

This arrangement gives a unique insight into the thought process behind the scenes and highlights the different approaches of directors and voice actors. The sheer range of differences in style, substance, storytelling, and techniques used is enormous. Each take on Ekoda-chan read more
