Genius inventor Null tragically loses her older sister Peta in an accident. To get over the grief, Null develops "Peta Robo," a robot with the same characteristics as her late sister. However, the robot is a little different as to what Null expected.
This is a wonderful tale about two sisters and their strong bond! Null and Peta. That lost everything they have when tragedy suddenly struck and tore them apart!! The story have everything from strong love, humour, to drama. And carrying out its segments extremely well! Its heartwarming and so wholesome
The style and animation is warm and almost a bit childish with strong colours! It may not have the biggest budget neither the best technique or fancy CGI effects!! But it doesn't need to! Its reminds me more of a home cooked
meal!! Made with love and great care! It have a soul and a big heart!! Which make it so damn appealing and lovable!! Its attractive and so fabulously delicious that I just want more!!!
Love the sound everything to the charming beeping noise to the opening!It doing a great job to enchant the scenes!!
The sisters are very strong characters!! Null goes on with her life after the accident!! Instead of breaking down she tries to fix things!!Building a new sister with the same characterising as the old one! She is a persistent girl who don't give up easily and a ready to do anything to get her sister back. And grows in to take a bigger responsibility and try to do things she doesn't like!!Such as going to school and eat nutritious food (even if it taste bad)!! She Is very charismatic and charming! A great character well written that one feels strongly for!!
Her sister the Peta bot! Can be a bit forceful! But she really cares and wants the best for her beloved little sister!! The robot are more a humorous relief segment then anything else!! Its role is important, but the big star is the younger sister Null!!
I got an enormous amount of enjoyment out of this! It have everything! Great story lovely animation good sound,But mostly it have the sisters! And with such strong characters It make you feel everything!! From sadness amusement to confusion!! It have everything and more! I got really invested in this little anime that I didn't have high hopes for in the beginning! Short anime's with only five minutes of running time are often very shallow!! But this was so much more than I ever could have dreamed of!! This media gave me a strong immersive experience!! And I ending up loving ever second of it!!
The only small negative aspect I can find in this phenomenal media! Would be the humour itself!! I just wish they had tone it down a tiny notch!! It's a very minuscule detail, and not going to be an obstacle for once enjoyment!! But if I have to nitpick that would be it!
But in the end its one of the better if not the best short anime I have seen! It is truly the little anime that could!!And shows it's not the matter on how many minutes you have! The most important factor is how you spend the time!! And this did everything right!!
I Strongly recommend this anime! It may be short but it have a big heart!!
You want to see an five minutes anime who gonna surprise you to the begin to the end? If you'd like, this is Null Peta.
A non sense anime who show us a simple plot, but with a lot of plot twist.
The storytelling, keeping in mind the script. is organic for your genre and becoming a positive surprise. The plot can be a little confusing throughout the episodes, especially in the middle of the anime, but this only highlights the no sense genre in the anime.
At times you might even think "ah this happened because the anime has low budget", may even be that, but the
development of history makes everything believable and natural.
About the characters, you want more development than this? It's totally organic, you understand who the characters are and they're there for a reason.
Peta's maturing is certainly one of the best and best structured I've ever seen in anime.
In an otherwise weak season, this short anime has somehow became one of my go-to shows every Friday and despite my initial disappointment at the show being revealed to be a short, I ended up liking the show a lot irregardless.
The pacing is undoubtedly masterclass in this. In spite of its short length, Null Peta feels just right. Even at about 4 minutes + 1 minute OP, each episode of the show isn't too long and isn't too short. It hits that mark just right and ends just at the point where you want it to end.
The plot and humour are done fairly
well, with a very gentle colour palette complementing the scenes really well, giving the whole show a very fairy-tale like presentation that is pleasing on the eyes.
And like other weird Fall shows I like (Flip Flappers for instance), the show does end up tackling some fairly morbid themes with a few plot twists here and there, but the upbeat optimism of the show never falters irregardless.
Would still preferred if they had the OP at the end of each episode though, having the episode just end without even a fade to black is pretty jarring.
Null & Peta is a short comedy anime about Null and her robot Peta, who happens to be a replacement for her late sister. The first half of these short episodes are really carefree and cheerful. We are then introduced to 2 sisters who deeply love and care for each other. We get a quick look at their relationship to show how deep their bond is. While later on, they make us conscious of the fact that something is off and the story changes ever so slightly. Overall I think Null and Peta is a good short anime. With it only being 5 minutes I
recommend giving it a watch.
