The "Otherworld" is a vast and dangerous realm hidden from the knowledge of the common folk. It is also home to many creatures that threaten any human who dare visit it. To witness its desolate yet oddly absorbing environment, one must search for portals that could reside anywhere, from secret elevators to shrine entrances.

After a fateful encounter with a horrendous Otherworld denizen, Sorao Kamikoshi ponders whether to keep going or give up in life. Meanwhile, Toriko Nishina scours the Otherworld in hopes of finding her friend Satsuki, who she believes is lost somewhere within the realm.

When the two cross paths, friendship blossoms. In order to acquire as much information about this obscure dimension, the two travel back and forth from the real world to the other. Sorao and Toriko's bodies are soon influenced by the Otherworld, preparing them for the many horrors to come as both of them try to fulfill their goals.

Urasekai Picnic is proof that attaching a competent director to good source material doesn't necessarily result in a good adaptation. For whatever reason, the anime adaptation of Urasekai Picnic is plagued with issues through and through. From the moment the first PV dropped I should have been alarmed, the audio mixing was completely messed up, and the animation quality was subpar at best. Still, I tried to convince myself that it's just a bad PV, surely the actual show would be at least decent right?

I gotta start with the first thing that came to mind when I started watching the adaptation: Audio. The audio mixing read more

Fantasy animes in my opinion are crazy. Both in a good way and a bad way. There is so much the creator can do around with fantasies and can make it as "crazy" as possible.

Urasekai Picnic is an anime about traveling to an alternate world called "Otherside" where they fight off weird creatures while searching for their friend. I watched this anime since it has the "Shoujo Ai" listed in its genres because I love Shoujo Ai and it is one of my favorite genres and I expected somewhat romance but I didn't get it, even though I felt it. The CGI used here is read more

Without many premonitions what “Urasekai Picnic” is about, I watched the anime mainly because of the genre-tag "Shoujo Ai”, one or the other of you may have been magically attracted by this one too. I expected some action combined with sci-fi and of course a lot of Yuri. But I was completely wrong!

The series focuses on Sorawo and Toriko, two young women who discover the “Otherside” of their own world. It is a dangerous world where many monsters from ghost stories come to life. There is always a secret door or item that leads to the other world. Sometimes it could be in an old read more

Where do I start? I’m quite confused as to why this anime exists I guess? I don’t quite get this series. It’s basically combining urban legends and putting it into a title with characters to explore these said urban legends. Oh there’s also a side “B” story where a friend is missing but it doesn’t really talk about that.

Story (3):
It’s quite episodic. Every episode we get a different urban legend and our two MCs explore said legend. The formula is the same; somehow the MCs get themselves into these situations naturally and they try to find their way back to their own world.

And that’s literally read more
