Truly a different kind of anime, very simple in each part (story, art, sound, characters, etc.) and every episode lasts only about 3 minutes.

The reason I liked it is also simple, it's easy and comfortable to watch, every episode fells fast-paced, so it's not boring, and the mystery part of the story is enjoyable.

That's it, there's not much to say, it's just good, great if you want something fast and uncompromised. In my opinion, it's definitely worth trying. And I must say, the ending is great.

This is my first review, so it might be a little weird, but thanks for reading it.

It's hard to describe what That is the Bottleneck is about, and maybe it’s one of those pieces of media that it’s better to just jump in without not much knowledge of it. I didn’t know anything before watching this show as I stumbled upon it by pure chance, I was just looking for a short-length anime and simply found it. In the past, I found Skull-face Bookseller Honda-san and it didn’t disappoint.

That is the Bottleneck is not as good or funny as Honda-San, however, it is nonetheless an interesting journey through the point of view of different characters through its short runtime, both ...

Watching Sore Dake ga Neck was fun, I admit. It is not a show that should be taken seriously, as the anime only tells a story of a man without a head, who reincarnates and wants to show feelings to a girl who resembles his former lover.
Although it is something different from the usual, this particular show is very creative and has a unique comedy. The anime definitely pleased me for its simplicity. THE ENDING IS ALSO VERY GOOD!!
The "short anime" style may not suit you, but it is a show that I would recommend to anyone who wants to see something fast.
