"Jiisan no Love Love♥Scat (じいさんのラブラブ♥スキャット)" by Jii-san (Satoshi Hino)

Komatta Jiisan is not an anime that you'll walk away from with some new perspective, absolutely raving about why you love it, revelling in its genius...but one that will leave you with the dumbest smile on your face.

The show takes literally 13 minutes to watch, but it was 13 minutes well spent. This show is exactly what the synopsis says, and it revels in it. You know the punchline, and yet when the punchline comes, its still just as charming.

One thing is for sure about this anime, Grandpa was a smooooth talker back in his day!

This show consists of him and his wife (Grandma) living their daily life in which he finds ways to swoo her off her feet despite how long they've been together. Its a really cute, very short anime that makes you appreciate Grandpa's talent in the art of about giving Grandma a heart attack with his sudden onset of extreme charm.

Also they're an incredibly cute elderly couple, and we don't see a lot of romantic endeavors between said demographic in anime. Its fun to watch!

This is one of those gems.

This anime is about a grandpa pretending to be old and fragile just to charm his wife. That's it. It is short, easy to understand and has lots of potential.

This anime is pretty darn cute. ...
