^the reason why Pupa is shit is because
1. the animation sucks
2. the music sucks
3. the characters suck (like, they aren't even characters ...)
4. the story is totally unfinished
5. do I need more reasons? -> It literally sucks in all aspects if you were to review this anime.

And don't give me that bullshit of "it didn't have enough time!". There are other anime (or OVA's) who are much shorter but managed to create a masterpiece in like... 10 minutes.

Before watching this, I thought; "You know, maybe it's not as bad as people are saying."

But nope, it actually is. I tend to be quite tolerant and patient when it comes to anime, but this was too much for me. Just... no.

Didn't make me care about the characters, didn't make me feel invested in the story AT ALL. It was one random scene to the next. Yea, sure, there is some kind of underlying plot there. But this anime doesn't accomplish anything with it. I'm sure the manga does though, to some extent at least.

Animation quality was "acceptable". Wasn't that terrible. Everything else was though pretty much.

Well, curiosity got the better of me. Didn't enjoy that in any aspect. Well, the OP was a tiny bit interesting? A tiny bit. That's about the only positive thing I can lean towards. Just on a whole I found it really weird and unpleasant. I didn't expect anything considering the ranking, reviews and anything else I'd heard but...

Oh well. Onto something new.

Well. what was that ending about? very filler like.

Well ... I take it that it probably won't come back.

It wasn't very good because not much was really explained in the end and what happened to the pregnant lady? that would've made the show more interesting.

Mmh, i think MAL made a mistake with the genres.
Or at least they should've added the 'Comedy' tag, 'cause i laughed more in the anime than in some comedies.

Anyways, damn this anime was bad, not even the "gore"-parts can be classified as gore, it just looked like she chewed on some big bubble gums ...

...Well. That was... interesting? No, it sucked. I've not been so disgusted by the shit level of an anime since I watched boku no pico, and even that was gold compared to this shit.

Ah, writing a review on this is gonna be really fun.

If it was possible to go back in time, I would spend the time that I've wasted on this anime on different things. Like waiting for the fish that I've painted on to wall to swim away, or try to learn a pig to speak Japanese.

So the series ends on a happy note, leaving behind more questions than answers. Seriously, this episode should have been an OVA. In fact, this series should have been an OVA with longer episodes, instead of a TV series with 4-minute episodes. That way, elements wouldn't have been implemented so haphazardly. But as it stands, Pupa is the one of the worst anime of 2014.

Wow. I take back my words about it not being as bad as I'd expect from the second lowest rated anime. It's terrible.
But at least I'll never see anything as bad as this again. In a way, it was hilarious. And I loved Yamamoto.

The final episode is strangely appropriate; this colossal mess of a series ends with a whimper. The entire series is so disjointed that it felt like they could have thrown anything in at this point. Competent storytellers might have tried to close some of the gaping plot holes, but the people who threw this together are either incompetent or simply don't care. The four-minute episode format was a terrible idea; it works for gag comedies, but not for something like this. It doesn't allow for much of a continuous narrative or character development, and this series even manages to waste a fair amount of the limited time that it does have - the entirety of the final episode is a waste of time, except that it helps to drive home the sensation of utter failure that this series exudes.

To be fair, the entire premise behind the series is so problematic that it would have been difficult to make it work. Perhaps the simplest approach to an idea like this would have been to play it for laughs and to make it intentionally bad. To make a good story out of this concept would be a delicate balancing act, but I believe it could be done. The creators of this anime were clearly trying for this, but they failed spectacularly. The disjointed plot, the short episode length, and the poorly developed characters all conspire to make a muddled mess that ends up being unintentionally funny.

How could a viewer laugh at all the terrible things that happened to these characters? If they qualified as real characters, and if the situations in which they found themselves were developed in such a way as to feel real (despite the absurdity of the situation), it would be possible to empathize with them, and therefore impossible for any decent person to laugh at them. However, these "characters" are little more than clumsy constructs stumbling through ridiculous situations; any illusion of reality is ruined by the botched storytelling, so empathy is destroyed. It is easy to laugh at a clumsy construct, especially one so poorly executed.

The one bright spot I can find in this series is the art, which is at least interesting at times and, if combined with good storytelling, could have contributed a lot to the creepy and disturbing atmosphere that the series failed to create. As it is, the reasonably good quality of the art simply serves to make the overall failure of the series seem even more glaring, so since it doesn't mar the overall sense of failure, it doesn't prevent the series from earning a score of 1 from me.

This series is truly a masterpiece of failure, and I predict that it will be remembered for a long time. Pupa is destined to become a cult classic.

First time posting because I JUST HAD TO OMFG I am so damn glad I'm done with this trainwreck of a show (can you even call it that?). Went into it not knowing squat and within the first 5mins I felt like someone ran a truck over me so I had to come here for the reviews. Just to check if it's just me. THANK GOD NO.

Seriously worst episode of the worst series ever made. No one should touch this stinking pile of shit with a ten foot pole. I'm glad School Days is now officially not the most appalling + anime with the worst ending in my books now.

I'd give it a negative score but alas 1 is the lowest.

So they ended it with filler? Laaame.

Okay, so my thoughts on this show: Honestly, I didn't think this was that bad. Don't get me wrong, it's still a piece of shit and bottom-of-the-barrel for sure, but it was more boring and unmemorable than anything else.

I guess the reason that I didn't hate this that much despite it being of objectively terrible quality is either because I wasted barely more than an hour watching it, or because I expected worse. If the episodes had been full-length while still having the same problems (poor pacing, incest, nonsensical story), I probably would have hated this a lot more. As it is right now, this is really shitty, but forgettably shitty.

Rating for this episode: 1/5

Rating for the overall show: 1/10

Could have been better.

The last episode is tolerable.

I would have rate it 4/10 if the rest of the show doesn't sucks so bad.

Lol that was just adorable! I really don't know where all the hate is coming from to be honest as I've seen far worse anime to be honest. While the last episode is quite unfitting it just is a cute ending...

All in all a short but quite interesting anime if you ask me. Too underrated if you'd ask me?

This anime was agony to the point that I did not care at all. Most of my thoughts was "When will this end?" The anime is full of plot holes. For example; why was Yume born with teeth? When was Yume infected with Pupa? Was she born with the Pupa virus? These things are not explained at all! Also who exactly was the kid at the end of the series? Was he a old childhood friend? If so why didn't he so up earlier?

This anime is nothing and the sole purpose of its existence is to boost up your anime list with its short episode duration. There's nothing memorable about this series. Other than Yume I don't even know any of the other characters name. Even the mysterious woman in the beginning had no real purpose being in the series. What exactly her purpose is unknown other than she is supposed to take care of people infected with the Pupa virus.

Which raise another series of questions such as; where did the Pupa virus come from? Was it man made or nature? Who else is infected? Is anyone immune to the Pupa Virus? What does the Pupa virus exactly do to the human body? Why doesn't Yume's brother become a monster?

It's explained that the Pupa Virus gives the host massive regeneration abilities but that doesn't explain why only Yuma becomes a monster. Also what is the sole purpose of the red butterflies? That's another plot hole that is said but never explained. I could go on for hours about how bad this series was. Plus the last episode did nothing to the plot at all as it was totally used for the sole purpose of having a 12 episode series instead of 11. Overall Pupa sucks. Screw Pupa.

Episode thoughts - 4/5

Literally the only good episode of this show.

Show thoughts - 2/10

Once there was a horrible show. It was so horrible that everyone died. The end.
Lets agree that the only good thing about this show was the intro.

This is nothing more than a "trailer" for the manga, kind of sad for a manga who was almost fully published at that time.
I recently started to read the original, so I'll answer a few points:

If you plan to read the manga, avoid this. If you only want to make a little more sense out of the snapshots you got to see in this aberration of a series, go on.


17. Correction: the anime sucks. (not that the manga is a marvelous piece of work, but it's interesting enough)

Lol, this finale almost felt fillerish.

Seriously, what am I even watching now? Bunny and carnivals. Weird as hell. Oh wait, it's when the siblings were younger. Got it.


ONLY the finale felt fillerish?!? LOL Bruh the whole series was - it was a crockpot of reused, weak pop-culture ritual abuse symbolism minus the actual substance. This series is utter garbage. I kept hoping it would fill in the cracks OH ONNICHHANNN FILL THE CRACKS....nada. Any answers to why Maria is prego and getting filled with sperm....nada. This.....is garbage. *flips desk*
