THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Well that was weird. The animation felt really cartoonish but I think it still counts as an anime. What an odd 10minute show though. What's with that guy with the brain with the machine? Hmm.

I decided to put this on-hold for now. Really unsure how to make of this if I decided to follow it.

I'll bite, I'm a bit interested. It's for kids, but the style is rather unique despite the weirdness, and the episode flowed rather nicely. Has a decent sense of humor thus far, and it doesn't talk down to children. I'm hoping it turns out to be a good show. Also, the voice actress of Velonica, Kintarou, is not too shabby for a newbie. Better than Yuka Fujiwara's performance as Wonder Momo, for sure.

I'm sticking around. Not too fond of the ED, though, in all honesty. The 3D is jarring compared to the rest of the show, but the song has no lyrics, so that's a plus. Not often you get an instrumental ending song.

The intro was nice but I'm in LOVE with the art direction. It's so weird and unique and cute. The color palette is the best.

The ED...I don't know. I'm torn between thinking it's kind of creepy and liking it for that reason.

The moment when she eats the croquette is so awesome. Like, her teeth gain a life of their own and fly out of her mouth. It'll be interesting to see how the aliens' obsession with efficiency goes down. Very cute show.

Holy shit, that ending creeped the fuck out of me. Other than that, the animation style is intriguing, it's like a mix of old style from before the turn of the millennium and the CGI of today with some cartoonish inspirations.

Actually pretty fun to watch and it helps that the episodes are short. The animation style is nice.

The ending will haunt my nightmares though, god that was creepy.

How come people think the ending is creepy? I thought it was hilarious xD
Reminds me of Space Channel 5 haha

Anyways, this series pretty funny. I'll keep watching.
