Part anime, part live action, and part puppet show. This MAL entry duration will reflect the anime segment only. Nantoka Narudesho is a series of seemingly unrelated sketches. Viewer-be-warned, some sketches have not aged well and would be found extremely offensive due to racism, sexual depravity, and homophobia.

Mixed Feelings
This running gag artsy partly anime, movie and puppet show is a social critic about social annoyance and its offensive counterparts. Where we are in the eyes of a judgmental moron whose purpose is to make fun of and abuse the people around by pushing the uncomfortable. So yes, like other people are saying there are homophobic, racist, misogynist, ageist, etc. scenes, but they are in fact a form of denunciation.

A great subject that, however, the execution suffers pretty much from being too much draft where scenes feel way longer than it should despite the fact this is a short OVA.

This is the worst piece of animation-acting-puppetshow I ever witnessed, it's so bad, ridiculous and non coherent and I'm pretty sure it has the intention to do so but it comes across in such a unfunny maner and misses it mark completely, it's creativety is something to admire on the other hand it switches from acting to animation to puppetshow to just some waves floating across the screen, some of these were used for comedic purpose but didn't seem really funny, the film was filled with borederline raceist and homophobic jokes which weren't even funny, overal i would give this anime a "i sniffed too ...

This isn't even an Anime.

Just a warning for those who want to watch this...DONT. I had the pleasure of wasting 40 minutes of my life on this film and it wasn't worth it.

Story 0/10

Couldn't rate zero so in the system so it got a 1. Your looking for a real consistent story huh? Well your at the wrong place... the whole 43 minutes is a confusing mush of gag shorts, weird live actions, and random creepy looking puppets.

Art 1/10
