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. It made me audibly laugh more than once and that's great for a show that has 30 second episodes. The art is kiddish and brings out the cuteness of beans with dog read more

The plot is the same in each episode so you won't miss a thing, but each has a different mood to match up with the punchline.

The art reminds me of a kid's show, which lets viewers know that it's just a short film and isn't too intense.

The sound is effective and helps elaborate the mood. The mameshibas are voiced by kids in a serious and matter-of-fact tone which amuses me every time.

Peoples' reactions to the talking mameshibas are pretty realistic. However, in the beginning everyone had the same reaction in the end, but later on it was different. If they wanted to read more

Mameshiba, literally translating to "bean dog" in English, is a very fitting title for this bizarre and wacky anime. It's humorous, entertaining, and even educational to a certain degree with each episode consisting of an odd, gross, or disturbing fact which as a result, disgusts or annoys the person about to eat the mameshiba.

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.
