In brief, if you like lactating cow girls and nice ahegaos, "Ushichichi Tabehoudai!" is for you, granted that you're alright with older, less photogenic men. However, there are far uglier ones both mentally and physically in the grand scheme of things.
More in depth...
Story: 6. We have a couple of guys struggling to get sales up for their business until they come across a girl, Nana, that fits the bill for their marketing campaign. When the two guys get her all dressed up, she recommends to go for a sexier theme for a marketing campaign since her dress is more risqué than usual. You can guess
Art: 7. The animation quality is above average and the animation style is quite unique compared to others. "Ushichichi Tabeoudai!" is a sort of middle ground between manga and anime as it occasionally takes on an animated panel format, which was a nice surprise. And for all of you ahegao lovers, there are a handful of ahegaos present here. While they aren't the most distorted and mind broken ones you'll see, they remain relatively unobtrusive and natural. A minor gripe about the animation, though, would have to be time intervals between each cut. As each cut fades out, there's nothing; no sound, no image, just you. These gaps are more apparent due to the lack of background music and can be quite distracting given how frequent they are.
Sound: 4. The sound design was subpar to say the least. You could hear when the voice clips ended. The synergy between the voices and animation was a little off occasionally. An example would be Nana panting during a 5 second still frame of insertion. Now, while this isn't necessarily a bad thing per se, there was no background music at all. This allows for you to be completely immersed in the raw sound and let the little bit of ASMR (for those of you into it) be heard. However, because of the noticeable endings of each voice clip, it would have been better with background music to make it less detectable.
Character: 5. There was nothing too special about the characters. We have two business men trying to raise sales using previous marketing methods but have failed to find a girl that will work out well. That is until they encounter Nana, an airhead with the God-given ability to lactate without being pregnant. Aside from her modest ahegaos and her nice eyebrows, nothing really stands out.
Enjoyment: 6. When I saw the ugly bastard tag, I was going to close the tab as quickly as I opened it, but looking at the snapshots, they didn't seem so bad. So I pressed forward. If it turned out to be unwatchable so be it. This wasn't a bad watch and was actually one of the more enjoyable ones I've seen. While the men are no Adonis's by any means, I don't think making them more model-like or just average would change my enjoyment. Then there's Nana. Although cow girls aren't really my thing, I found her to be quite pleasant. Maybe it was her personality or maybe her eyes? Yeah, it was probably her eyes. Eyes can either make or break a character for me, and Nana nailed it, especially with her expressions.
Overall: 6. "Ushichichi Tabehoudai!" is quite different in terms of animation, in a good way, and while the sound design is lacking, the art is really above par and makes up for it. I would rate this a 6/10 and I see myself coming back in the future.
