The "pleasant horror gag comedy" centers around the life of Tatami-chan, a sardonic ghost from Iwate Prefecture who is now living in Tokyo among other spirits, supernatural entities, and humans. In addition to dealing with otherworldly matters, the unemployed Tatami-chan also has to deal with job-hunting as well as paying for gas, water, and electricity.

Jul 15, 2020
What would happen if you'd be forced by a mysterious force -be it good or evil- to be extremely honest ALL the time? What would happen is, at first, that you could not have any kind of typical healthy relationship with friends, family or society. The full weave of social interactions would be destroyed by the total disrespect to societal norms, appearances, empathy or egotistic desire.

The hard truth, the things you ...

Most of the time it's passingly funny, even getting the occasional laugh, but some of the jokes are easily lost on a western audience. The art is colorful and lends itself well to a lighthearted, comedic atmosphere. Though, despite a couple of detailed loops, the overall animation is nothing more than what ...

Words cannot describe my hatred for this pathetic trash that doesn't deserve to be called an anime.

Starting off with the comedy aspect of this show, this show doesn't have any funny moments. All the "funny moments" that are supposed to make you laugh are disgusting and make me wanna throw up.

There isn't a single good character and like the comedy every time a character is on screen I feel like throwing up from how trash it ...
