The anime centers on a Moai statue named Mowai-kun who is gloomy every day because it lives a dull life where it just watches the beach and the sun from atop a hill on an island. But one day Mowai-kun grows arms, and starts to dance. The anime will air within the Oha-Suta program's "Kyara-Suta" corner.

I was chilling with a friend at 1 a.m. when I saw this "gem"on the Japanese Youtube's recommendations page. We knew it was going to be a dumb kids show, but it turned up to be one of the weirdest and unironically funniest series I've watched in my entire life. This may be for kids, but it's way too weird, even for Japan's standards. Who would knew that a series about a Moai statue with hands would make a grown-up cry in tears?
