Ekoda-chan lives much like any other 24-year-old in the neighborhood of Ekoda. Preferring to lounge around naked whenever possible, Ekoda-chan spends her time between temporary jobs fooling around with lizards, men, and anything else that comes her way.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]


Every episode of Rinshi!! Ekoda-chan is directed by a different person and has a different actress playing Ekoda-chan.

Each episode consists of a three-minute short, a 20-minute interview with the director and lead actress for that episode, and a showcase of the director producing some of the animation. Since only the first and last parts of the episode are animated, the episode length is listed as five minutes.

Episode 10 was produced with puppetry and is not included in the episode count.

Rinshi!! Ekoda-chan is one of the strangest series I have ever covered, both in 2019 and in general. It's an interesting anthology anime where each episode can be divided up into 3 sections. The first is a 3-minute animated short. Each director is allowed to go in whatever stylistic direction they want and this results in most of the episodes taking a completely different visual approach from one another. The second and far longer section is a 20-minute interview with the episode director and the seiyuu of the main protagonist for said episode as they talk about the manga and the production of the episode. ...

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 ...

Preliminary (4/11 eps)
“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 ...
