Midori Asakusa sees the world a bit differently. Always having her nose in a sketchbook, Asakusa draws detailed landscapes and backgrounds of both the world around her and the one within her boundless imagination. Even the simple act of doodling on a wall evolves into an emergency repair on the outer hull of her spaceship. She is only brought back to reality by her best friend Sayaka Kanamori. The pair are stark opposites, with Asakusa's childlike wonder contrasted by Kanamori's calculated approach to life.

After a chance encounter where the two "save" the young model Tsubame Misuzaki from her overprotective bodyguard, a connection instantly sparks between Asakusa and Misuzaki, as both share an intense passion for art and animation. Whereas Asakusa is interested in backgrounds and settings, Misuzaki loves drawing the human form. Sensing a money-making opportunity, Kanamori suggests that they start an animation club, which they disguise as a motion picture club since the school already has an anime club. Thus begins the trio's journey of producing animation that will awe the world.

From the brilliant mind of Masaaki Yuasa, Eizouken ni wa Te wo Dasu na! is a love letter to animation, wildly creative in its approach, and a testament to the potential of the medium.

“Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken!” is pure passion for animation. Every aspect of the show from its eclectic score to its quick, quippy dialogue is charged with a wacky, frenetic, creative energy that flows straight from the screen to the viewer through each lovingly crafted frame. It’s impossible not to have fun watching the off-beat, silly, and inspiring adventures of these three girls who just wanna make amazing anime.

Admittedly, the plot isn’t complex or deep -- there’s not much more to know than “three misfits starting an animation club.” Its lead characters Asakusa, Kanamori and Mizusaki aren’t amazingly nuanced or compelling either, but they’re expressive, read more

This anime is a love letter to anime in general, focusing on the production of it through the imagination one concept artist, one passionate animator and one friend that is just there for the ride (and maybe some money), but also not forgetting the technical side of it, despite not focusing so much on it like on Shirobako. It doesn’t matter if you only like shounen, moe or psychological anime, if you ever obsessed over any anime you ought to give at least the first episode a watch. Not only will Asakusa and Mizusaki spell out the little details that allow the immersion to a read more

One of the best shows I've ever seen, but not for being very complex or mutli-layered.

Judging the show's parts individually is extremely hard, and that's because if you looked at the story indivudually it isn't outstanding, but it allows for some of the best animation sequences and incredibly charming and fun ideas and characters.

The main strength of Eizouken is definitely the imagination scenes. The characters are so caught into these that you can't help but go along with it and smile during the entire thing. The sounds in these scenes are being made by the VA of Asakusa, and it's very fitting.

Though that isn't to read more

How to make anime 101

I never thought I would watch something like this but damn it was worth to start. This is very interesting show to say at least. The show has very unique art style but what can you expect from Masaaki Yuasa and Studio Science SARU. Since all their works look interesting.

Story: It is quite simple. Our main character Midori Asakusa moved to a new city and started getting interested in Drawing. She soon started liking anime and wanted to know what happens behind the scenes of anime production and wants to make her own anime. Years go by and she starts read more
