An accident in the bakery's oven caused a piece of bread to stay in the oven for way too long. Thus Kogepan was born - a piece of burnt bread, having no chance to be sold.

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.

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

"...Are you really gonna watch an anime about a BREAD??" - a friend who's pretty much done with me

Yes, I've watched an anime about a bread, but it actually felt like watching a life lesson. If this is some child's childhood then I'm so, so happy for them.
Kogepan may be an anime about a burnt bread, but it's full of deep themes like friendship, old age and being different. Which is... something I didn't really expect. And it hit me right in the kokoro.

Anyway, the art is well sitting for this type of show and the same goes for the sound. I will probably read more
