My favorite 1995 anime of the year.
I work in VNs. Sometimes, they have h-scenes and I go "waai~". I also like to not write at Oppai is Justice, a blog with great urls.

Oh my, I don't think my body was ready for this. If it was any longer than 5 mins I would have probably fallen asleep.

2/5

The audio was a mess, I couldn't even recognize Minori's voice D:. Heard her sing the OP at least.

Too much going on in one episode. Not sure what's gonna happen next.
I'm sticking with Ketsuekigata-kun! for a good ol' 2-3 minute anime.

Looks like it's from the '90s. :)

Uhm, besides from that I guess it was okay. Felt kinda rushed.

Pretty cheap and stupid, but it still has some guilty pleasure potential.

At least it didn't disappoint me - it's exactly what I expected after reading the synopsis.

Either the person who recorded this does not have digital cable/TV or they made it this bad.

It did have a pretty old feel to it. It reached the point of almost being funny I think, but yeah, even within 3 minutes it didn't quite manage it.

While watching, I thought it was just an opening and I was ready to watch a main part. But alas it was just a 3 min anime.

Since the title reminded me of Dolphin Hotel from A Wild Sheep Chase, I expected something dark and mysterious. But it seems it's a comedy.

meh.... not great... good? it's kinda funny and all over the place. Had it been longer than 3 minutes I'd say bad or horrible, but 3 minutes of this stuff is actually great when smoking a buzz... but hey that's my opinion.

In 9/10 cases, the worst thing about an anime is its fandom.

The character design is very old school. It is at least early 90s, perhaps even earlier.

Also the character art seems to be a bit off sometimes, making it look quite amateurish or doujin level.
So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.

I don't know what you have against the 90's (NGE was made in the 90's btw), but please don't blame it for the terrible char design. There are and continue to be awful char designs in every decade and this is definitely a product of the 2010's. I agree the animation looks pretty oldschool looking though, but hey its a 3 min anime, I imagine they don't have some huge budget.

Well, I think you need to separate the two points I made. What I said in my earlier post are 1) the style has 90s feel and 2) the art is amateurish. 1) does not imply 2) or vice versa. They are separate observations. I never said that because it looks 90s I thus considered the art is bad.

Everybody is commenting on how it looks like a 90s work. Honestly, to me it looks more like a early 2000s work.

And then that's when you realize that the 2000s were 10 years ago. Or is that just me?

In any case this gave me a few laughs, and the low quality of the animation can be off putting to some. Meh. I'll keep watching for that weekly laugh to brighten up my week every now and then. And I guess for the nostalgia effect the animation gives off as well.

This show reminds me of Spelunker Sensei - equall terrible animation (heck, it's even worse here!) and totally unfunny jokes.
Spelunker Sensei at least had Tomokazu Sugita, while here... No comment.
1/10 from me, and I don't think it's ever gonna change.
