Kogepan is the tale of a burnt piece of bread going through an existential crisis because nobody wants to buy him. It's all of half an hour long, with each episode being 4 minutes long, much like Fireball. It came recommended from 2 different people, and when two completely different people with no connection to each other and totally different tastes recommend an animation short aimed at children from over 10 years ago, you should probably pay attention. That's assuming Kogepan is aimed at children, which I find hard to believe since the DEEP THEMES of Kogepan will fly straight over the head. You read more

Kogepan is the badass of the bakery. His life began as any other bread, filled with hope of being nestled in a paper bag in the hands of a customer, but that dream ended when he fell to the bottom of the oven and burned. Cast aside by the baker, he spends his days drinking with his friend Kuriimupan and resenting the other breads that live his lost dream. Some of the cute little Kireipan are drawn to his brooding personality, but Kogepan knows that their time together is brief. He is a stern and sometimes frightening teacher.

Story: This anime is clearly meant for a young audience. The story is laced with life lessons. I rated the story a 7 because of the life lessons for the children.

Sound: The music doesn't stand out too much. I did find myself laughing at the music a couple of times, but it is still effective because of the intended audience.

Character: The main character is a burnt piece of bread. His story is read more

Kogepan, Kogepan.. very good anime illustrating some of life's lesson's.

Enjoyment

very adorable, short and funny which kept me interested throughout the episode. Seem to be directed to kid's but still has appeal to teenagers

Story

The story is basically based on life lesson learned my the main character, a burnt Kogeopan, which is a type of bread.

Overall

7/10..It's enjoyable and might just teach you a lesson here and there. I say that its worth the 40 minutes it takes to watch this series .
