Douki-chan is a respectable office worker with one goal: to seduce her coworker Douki-kun. Unfortunately, this proves to be easier said than done, as her plans are constantly thwarted by Kouhai-chan and Senpai-san—her two love rivals who will stop at nothing to gain the affection of their beloved colleague first. Douki-chan will need all the luck she can get to surpass her competition and win Douki-kun's heart.

*Contains some spoilers*

I like my short anime. Many of them manage to get things done in a slither of time compared to some lengthier shows and can successfully create a good atmosphere with only 5-10 minutes per episode. Ganbare Douki-chan, whilst still pretty wholesome and sweet, personally did not quite live up to expectations. Twelve weeks of absolutely nothing.

Douki-chan is an honest lady. She fell in love with hentai protagonist Douki-kun one day, now struggling to keep her feelings in check.

Each and every one of her days follows her relationship with Douki-kun and the mad forces of evil who dare separate her from her beloved, namely Senpai-san and Kouhai-chan.

Sometimes these days are a little raunchy. Sometimes these days are fluffy. Sometimes the odd event can happen.

Yes, you heard it right. Everyone's favourite artist, the madman, Yom himself, is making a comeback with a new short animation series based on his unique drawings. Fallen from the sky, the guardian angel that ...
