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.

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. You'd be a monster, or simply put, someone really awful to be near of. It would be awful because from such a stark tongue there would get out anything else but the truth. The hard truth, the things you read more

Zashiki Warashi no Tatami-chan, which shall henceforth receive community-wide officiation to be shortened to Tatami-chan, is a series of short episodes that aim to satirize elements of Tokyo culture, from rowdy festivals to mixer hook-ups. The main character is a sharp-mouthed, country bumpkin ghost, the titular Tatami, who frequently reacts to the culture shocks she experiences in her day-to-day life as a city dweller.

Despite its roots in Japanese culture, none of the jokes or scenarios are particularly hard for a western audience to understand. The comedy is more humorous than it is hilarious. That is to say, you probably won't laugh, but you'll have read more

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.

The fact that this trash bag of a show can call itself a "comedy" is a disgrace to other comedies.

Secondly, the characters are all trash and easy to hate.

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 read more

This is quite possibly the worst comedy I've ever had the displeasure to watch and it's not just the comedy not being up my alley, I have a hard time believing anyone would find this funny.

The charaters are flat, the conversations are stiff and it looks like it was animated by a bored highschool student in their spare time. The sound is also quite bad but I guess it's acceptable for a low effort gag series like this one.

Every episode is a single dragged out skit and I think the punchline is that there is no punchline, well sometimes they have something resembling a punchline read more
