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.

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.

Sometimes you watch something and you're like "what was that?". Well this anime is that. It was boring but quite intriguing at first. And I have to say the calm atmosphere of the setting made me continue to watch it. It's rare to see anime on simple everyday life interactions. But slowly several plotlines started to pop up and I got confused as hell. I thought we would see some kind of analysis on the different characters and their daily life struggles but it was just hinted at without any depth. It mainly focused on the story of one character which, towards the end got read more

My most favorite anime of the season. Not that I watch a lot of anime this season. But because this one is short, I can actually watch it.
The voice acting is a bit dull and boring, which is accurate representation of working in a convenience store, or anywhere really. So it feels like it hits close to home, and comfortable to watch.
OP or ED is catchy too. Flawless and refreshing anime. Deserves a 10/10 for originality.

I have to write a longer review so... Short, charming, warm, wholesome, dark, sticky, thrilling, simple, revolutionary, relatable, mysterious, humorous, flawless, masterpiece, genius, neck.
