For those of you looking to relieve those slice-of-life blues afterAria finished, then look no further than Binchou-tan.

The series began life as began as a manga by Ekusa Takahito before being adapted for anime in 2006. The story is set in the town of Minabe in the Wakayama Prefecture (located in the Kansai region), and the series pays homage to the area in a number of aspects, the most prominent being the names of the characters. The titular character, and indeed many of the other characters, are named for different types of charcoal, with Binchou-tan being named after binchotan, a form of white charcoal that read more

::QUICK REVIEW::
Story: 8 (A true slice of life in every sense.)
Art: 7 (Beautiful Backgrounds but simple characters)
Sound: 6 (Fun ED song but overly silent SFX throughout)
Character: 9 (You will go "AWWWWW!! HOW CUTE!!")
Enjoyment: 7 (Binchous friends definitely made the show fun)
Overall: 37/50 = 7.4 (Very unique experience worth checking)

Binchou-tan may look like an energetic slice-of-life anime by glancing at the cover that is just a few chibis playing. Well, it's not. It's a very slow-paced slice-of-life anime with very little comedy. And it works.

Binchou-tan tells the tale of Binchou-tan, a young girl who lives out in the mountains by herself as this world apparently has no social workers. She goes to town every day to work for money, because this world apparently has no child labor laws. In this town, she creates and hangs out with several other young girls.

Binchou-tan is a really simple show. It's just Binchou-tan doing stuff every day. read more
