Preliminary (20/24 eps)
Mameshiba is an anime with very short episodes that are meant to be fun and cute and as long as you watch this anime with the expectation that it's just a simple, silly show then you're chances of liking it are high.

It's not a groundbreaking short. Many of the episodes feel similar and some of the jokes do not make much sense in English. That being said, I enjoyed this short anime.

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (20/24 eps)
Mameshiba, literally translating to "bean dog" in English, is a very fitting title for this bizarre and wacky anime.

The story of Mameshiba is pretty simple, considering it's episodic with each episode only lasting about a minute. Nevertheless, each episode is different in it's own way and doesn't get boring because of the change of characters, including the people about to eat the mameshiba, and the mameshiba themselves. Each person ...
