Bouida Haruto, a hardcore otaku with no interest in 3D (real) women, once appreciated figures from afar, accepting that "if you get into them, there's no turning back." However, when Nona, a character he loved from an anime called "Girls→Planetary Investigation" had a figure of her released, he ended up purchasing it. And then that night, the figure of Nona somehow came to life, and a couple-like lifestyle between man and toy began.
Choukadou Girl 1/6, was just the most adorable show, spring 2019. The story is around protagonist Bouida Haruto, and the would be harem of Ainime and Game figurines that mystically come to life. A pseudo Thumbellina/Toystory hybrid with a dash of harem. Amazing Stranger is a very slow starter and the episodes are short, but if you stick with it, a little baby plot will emerge to carry you down a river of adorableness, and you will dock in
a port of satisfied viewership.
Not the best art for an anime in 2019, but the girls(figurines) are drawn in a very adorable art style, and I think it will have influence on the anime community. The scenery is pretty repetitive and borrowed and its borderline a one room anime. Art [7/10]
The audio was just the best, and the OP and ED are quite catchy. The voice actress for leading lady Nona was on point, from moments of sarcasm to masking reality shattering discoveries with a giggle. Her performance paired with the adorable art style creates a must watch anime in my opinion. The final product might not make it into your top 20 favorites, but definitely give it a go. Sound [8/10]
The characters make this short little show such a treasure. A lot of trope action, but in 1/6 scale. It really takes the old barn and throws a new coat of paint on it. The fact this anime took such cliche scenarios and made them feel so fresh is a wondrous thing to me. Characters gets a [9/10]
I enjoyed this show, and wish they would have cranked out 22 minute episodes. We often get lost in the hustle and bustle of thought provoking action packed shows, and a nice little fairy tale like this is great to reset the pallet. Enjoyed [10/10]
Quoting a statement I read concerning Amazing Stranger, and I feel it truly summarizes this show, Ahem,
Ok, so another harem genre has ended, and it was more like them girls were in small packages that makes big trouble for a herbivore like that of Haruto Bōida who was the very epitome of a typical Japanese loser in Japan. So, whats the fuzz about this????? Well . in the story setting , the plot was just too cliche to begin with girl come to guy and next girl come in and another and another and so on so forth, but what makes the story sooooo PATHETIC was that it basically was a stereotype for an otaku/Herbivore/ loser/ retard that make it
a dream come true for such guy and we can say for sure that this OYSTER guy the original creator who made such works was basically like that in real life ....... No wonder all his works weren't doing well, in fact only this was his only success, too bad it only lasted for 45 chapters. As for the art, well, they didn't titled this as Choukadou Girl ⅙, as it them girls were 1/6 their size, the only ecchi here was with Nona, whom looks like she almost naked. On the character side, what make them soooo PATHETIC was that the guy was just as retard as his arch enemy Seijirō Kanmuri but then again unlike the main retard character Haruto Bōida, Seijirō Kanmuri has a girl that he has feeling for whom as retard as he is by the name of Rū Hitoma but nevertheless there is no need for me to mention about them girls cu'z Nona was the head of the helm, and quite frankly what makes me give the category such rating was that I kinda find those retard characters as annoying to the point that I wanna meet this OYSTER guy and give smack him in his face. Enjoyment , not much in fact this was one anime that you can afford to skip some episode, beside the ending would be the usual harem ending and to be honest, this was nothing more that watching a lame version of "Toy Story" . So overall , this anime was jaz more of a bad influence. that basically epitomizes that no matter how much of a well develop country is Japan , it's citizen were pretty much a bunch of retards.
So, my ratings:
Story: Pathetic 1- Cliche harem that epitomizes, a typical Jap retard.
Art: Good 7- for the girls haute couture.
Sound: Fair 6- that's for the opening.
Character: pathetic 1- Cu'z I feel like wanting to smack the main character in the face.
Enjoyment: Poor 3- Cu'z this was one anime that you can afford to skip at least 2 episodes.
Overall: Poor 3- Cu'z it epitomizes Japan's Herbivore society and its other retard groups of losers. also I feel like wanting to smack this OYSTER in his face for such lame creation and the studio bosses of A-CAT for choosing it to have an anime adaptation,
The most underrated anime this season, a really enjoyable lighthearted comedy.
I have no idea why this show is actually so low-rated. It's honestly one of the best shows airing right now. I actually feel sad if you miss out on this masterpiece. Which doesn't make sense because this show is all about otaku life and something I thought most anime fans would be able to relate to: figures and merchandise! A real diamond in the rough, this show is better than any of the other trash comedies airing right now. In these times where the anime industry is dominated with isekai plots and shounen giants,
really good lighthearted shows are hard to find, they're all mostly highschool slice of life. This is a breath of fresh air and the best comedy airing this season.
Its biggest flaw is also its greatest strength. The show heavily relies on 3D CGI in its animation, and god forbid anything 3D should be rated anything decent. I really liked the 3D CGI because the characters are figures, they're supposed to look mechanical. And honestly who even cares if they used 3D CGI if it looks good. But I guess some people aren't willing to take a chance on anything that's different.
This is the show I look forward to watching the most which isn't a continuing season. I only wish it was longer. Probably another reason it isn't as popular is that it's only 12 minutes per episode. Although there have been some 12 minute-length anime which have done well in the past like tsurezure children, or even now, isekai quartet, people will tend to watch these shows less because of its length and it's unfortunate since it's a really good show.

A complete ripoff of toy story, just kidding haha. But it's a comedy so don't take it too seriously. I think people who watch comedies for the story are like people who fish in the desert. Whatever floats your boat.

Heavily uses 3D CGI but if you can get past that, animation is pretty fluid. Character designs are really nice as well for the figures, I can imagine myself buying them if they actually release figures for this show haha.
Sound - 7
Not amazing but also not bad. They make use of 8-bit music in some scenes where characters from RPG's appear which is nostalgic for some people who've played those games. I think it's nice they add those little fine touches here and there.
Character - 9
NONA A BEST! FIGHT ME!
Enjoyment - 10
I'm really enjoying this show so far. It's really moe. Maybe I like it more because I'm also a hobbyist. I find it fun to build and collect figures so I can relate more to this show. But the show is more of a comedy so really anyone should be able to enjoy it.
Overall - 8
A really underrated show and I hope it gets more popularity. Especially because I really really really want to buy a Nona figure haha
Choukadou Girl 1/6 (Amazing Stranger) Is about an Otaku named Bouida Haruto who discovers that his anime figures can move and talk. The show isn't really story heavy and it doesn't take itself too seriously. Its somewhat enjoyable, but it could of focused on the story a bit more. It has a decent sense of humor and in some instances, pretty relatable moments throughout the show. Overall, its not bad, but it fails to make itself standout amongst the crowd during its aired season.
The main character Bouida Haruto is a hardcore otaku, he is especially a big fan of Nona, a
space explorer character from an anime he watches. His character is relatable to a degree but i feel as though he's too hardcore of an Otaku.
The plot is hardly there but it hangs on by a thread. There's always a character that comes out of nowhere and ends up wanting to fight existing characters but then become friends later on and basically form a harem, which doesn't make any sense at all.
