not understanding how anyone could see this show, decide to watch it, and rate it lower than a 10/10

is it somehow not delivering exactly what is advertised?

what a great a show.

I know right? People this season are so hyped about AOT S4 but they're sleeping on the real gems. This is by far the best anime of this season and possibly of all time. It sets out to do something and perfectly realises it, no bullshit, no disappointment, no discussion, just pure quality. Definitely the sleeper anime of the season, expect this to be picked up a few years later by some anime reviewer as the "forgotten gem of 2021" and then once more people watch it it skyrockets to N°1.

I have just finished watching episode 5 and agree with your sentiment. The complex and deep themes it has shown already trump most of what I have watched. It really is at the top with the greats.

In my view, not at all. This is probably the most healing thing I have ever watched. Molcar goes hard.

This show is very popular in Japan and my country (Taiwan), but why so underappreciated in western?

it's not an isekai

if the show were called "i got reincarnated as a guinea pig" it would be more popular with MAL's userbase

The person that came up with this might just be a genius honestly.

And then making it work like this with the stop motion, the Molcars are cute as fuck.

This show is perfectly executed on every level. I can't believe it's receiving so little attention in the west.

The most underrated show of all times in the western world. This show is blowing up in Hong Kong, Taiwan and Japan which is where I’m at, yet all my western friends refused to watch it after judging it by its cover. Apparently, they don’t like wholesome healing shows since it doesn’t comprise of isekai or anime harem elements.

I don't know much about the western community, but this show is extremely popular in East Asia. There's even some jokes like "only kids will watch Demon Slayers, real adults will watch Pui Pui Molcar", or "Pui Pui Molcar is the dark horse in January". When they stream this show on YouTube every Tuesday morning there're over 1000 users watching.

If it's real that the majority of the western community refuse to watch this show because it's a kid show, then it's a real shame. Just because it's a kid show doesn't mean it's meaningless to adults and is poorly produced. It's like saying western cartoons are bad because the design of characters looks childish.

Everything in this show is well designed and it actually targets audience from kids to adults. For kids it's obvious that the show teaches them some morals in a cute way, like not throwing trash on street or sharing with others. But for adults, watching this show is the perfect way to relieve stress from real life. For instance, traffic jam is something that troubles adults a lot, so the director had the idea, "if the cars were like guinea pigs, then we might not complain that much", and the first episode turns traffic jam into something interesting and amusing.

The more you rewatch it, the more you notice the details at the background and wonder about the universe in this show. Making stop motion animation is a tough work, but the director doesn't just let the background characters stay still, but give them appropriate reactions. Indeed, the director had spent one and a half year to produce 10 episodes (from the comments on YouTube). If you watch it and you don't like it, that's fine; but if you just judge a book by its cover, it's unfair to the director and the team, as well as their hard work.

This is truly a masterpiece and I can't wait to see the next episode.

You should've just watched it instead. Each episode is only 3 minutes and you get the experience yourself

This is certainly a very good anime. It seems a few just won't watch this tho. Fair enough, but I would recommend this to all. Best Kids anime I have seen.

This is just the type of anime we need during the pandemic.
It's a healing, two-minute stop-motion anime with cute felt hamsters/guinea pigs.

Hammies delivering a daily dose of serotonin!! <3

"Best anime in years"

LOL yes cause i typically think of CG hamster mobiles with real living koreans in the backseat dancing as being good too.

Totally normal reaction.

Unironically this is one of the worst anime i've seen in a while.

10/10? You may wanna consider fixing you're eyesight if you'd consider this monstrosity of an "anime" a 10/10.

Literal psychopath who can't even identify CG
Unsurprising from someone who has garbage like SAO and AGK on their favorites. Lmao sorry that your brain is so small and so smooth that you need a show to look like deviantart to enjoy it. Sit down.

You may want to consider fixing your brain if you unironically like Guilty Crown. Are you a joke account, a joke person, or both

I am unironically giving this show a 10 because this is how a perfect short episodic animation should look like. It is original, funny, cute and diverse. I enjoyed each episode and a big smile was on my face all the time.
This show doesn't need troll upvotes or anything, it's self-sufficient already.

Honestly though. It's just fresh, cute and well-made. I can't have any complaints.

Oh, it's that "grown child" with SAO and Clannad in favorites who still can't calm down lol. He already created a hate post about this show in general discussion. Got mad because this show is rated higher than some of his favorites. 30 years old man smh.

Seems like someone always want to watch edgy shows and trying to be cool here but got Sao as his favourite. Yeah I don't care about him who doesn't even know things like genre type shows.
Anyway I love this show to my heart and I keep grinning the entire time watching this.
