If you're writing a gag special, then this is the one to beat.

Gag specials usually suffer from overplayed jokes and poor art but not Index-tan. These two specials take scenes directly from the original anime and add comical twists to each one as their own independent skit. Along with taking scenes from the original series, the animation, sound, and voice acting are all just as solid too, if not better and more over the top at times.

Index-tan is the first gag special that's truly made me laugh out loud, not just a few times, but over and over. The sound effects were one of the ...

That moment when the specials are far more enjoyable than the original series, lol.

These specials have a crap ton of references to not only the special portions of the series and parodies them but also drags other anime into the mix as well.
And it doesn't stop there, they even drag the voice actors into it.

In terms of comedy and a job well done, these specials are far superior than the originals and I think I enjoyed the MC in this rather than the Holier-than-thou face-puncher-kun in the original series.

rated the original series 6/10 I think, but the specials are a 9/10.

This is a parody anime as you can see. This special produces a humorously exaggerated imitation of this anime. Without any reviews of this special on MyAnimeList. I'll just desperately try my best to write one for this...

It reuses scenes from the anime, but it changes the navigation(I seriously couldn't think of any more words...)and made it like short comedy scenes. I like the VA jokes and it talks about the current status of this anime during the its airing.

I'll keep it short and clear as always. It's funny, no actual plot, just comedy. Art style is the same but with a chibi Index. Character ...
