I'm surprised so many people are willing to believe that article at SeventhStyle. They provide zero evidence as to why it's going to be a 5 minute anime, except for some rumours that were floating around the internet. I am not ruling out the possibility, but this hasn't even been confirmed yet; or else ANN or Crunchyroll or some other, proper news site would jumped on it. Not only that, the official sources would have probably announced it first.
That's old news... you need to read all the posts before commenting, not just the first one. It has been officially confirmed as 12x5=60 minutes total by the site:

Ah, I did read all the posts but I guess I must have missed a few. Well, that's a shame. Hopefully it can be good despite it being 5 minutes.

I am a big fan of shorts, they can be really well done. But in this case with 5 volumes of manga done, I hope they can do a good job of it in just that time.

I think the recent SSB managed to pull it off very well, I quite liked that show. While Pupa's a completely different genre, I hope that it can pull it off. To be honest, I kind of expected this because of the limited source material?

Why does everyone think there is only limited source material???? There are 32 chapters, 5 manga volumes! Many one-cour full-length shows only adapt 4 volumes of manga.

Because these people only ever read their manga on Mangafox, and I doubt even a single one ever legit bought any of the stuff they've read or watched.

Just because something is 5 minutes long, doesn't mean it will be bad.

Sure, "Chi's Sweet Home" or the sequel are really good examples for that.
Pupa isn't a Slice of Life-story (which are easy to adapt in shorts) though. And from the synopsis it doesn't sound like it can be executed well in parts that are 5 minutes long each.
I'll give it a try but my excitement for the anime has become somewhat low.

The 5 min announcement made me think the anime will suck

After reading the manga, I know the anime will suck

Comedies do well as shorts too, for instance Senyuu.

But drama types don't do very well

Exactly! Masterpieces like Inferno Cop have episodes that are only 3 minutes long.

It being 5 minutes is why I'm watching it. My attention span is pretty low and I'm already watching a bunch of other things at the moment.

FWIW this show is only 5 minutes because the manga sucks.

If you want to see gore fanservice this bad read the manga or play a video game or something.

I instruct everyone currently raging because what appears to be a Horror/Psychological show got its time cut to actually read the manga.

There is no horror. Its just panels of the sister doing erotically drawn things while eating flesh.

If you are meant to fap to it, I don't think it counts as psychological horror anymore.

4 minute show. Not 5 minute.

And the Manga sucks. It's nothing but forced situations to show the sister half naked eating flesh.

Now, don't get me wrong. It's fap worthy and sexy. But don't dilude yourself into calling this shit "horror".

I dont get what u fap to i see absolutely no ero in this piece of shit.

Facepalm.

I guess a 24 minute per episode anime of a quality series was too much to ask for from Studio DEEN. If they aren't even bothered to spend a little time on worthwhile stuff, then I can't be bothered to waste my time watching their seasonal ripoffs of overused anime plot genres. This season - generic anime about two girls doing things related with school. No thank you, Sakura Trick.

I'm quite sure they are very upset that you are not going to illegally watch their stuff.

I bet they are throwing tables right now due to frustration and sadness over your decision. If only you can change your mind, how tragic.


Good sir, you're missing a brain. My anime club has a premium Crunchyroll account. I guess asking a Narutard to think before you post is too much to ask.

Also,

Can't understand?

How tragic.

What the hell.

Maybe I missed something. The chapters are around 35 pages each, which means in total Pupa is about 525 pages. Each of the 15 chapters can be an episode by its own right. They develop the characters, they introduce plot elements, they put emphasis on various motifs, and so much more.

These 5 minute episodes skip everything that make this series worthwhile. Absolutely no development, zero emotional value, no explanation of plot in a very non sequitur fashion, and just retarded decisions from Studio Deen to actually go through with this.

I would gladly read the first three pages of Pupa over watching this hashed bullshit. It gives so much more.

I just read the entire manga and the pacing was pretty bad. Very, very rushed at times. The PV looked really interesting so I was looking forward to watching it, but then it did...that. So I went and read the manga, and now I'm only reading it because I've already put an hour into it and will just see it through to the end.

It's really hard to read the manga, tbh.

There's not enough content on any front to warrant any actual interest in what's going on. Things happen in the story that make the reader go, "Oh, that's nice...I guess...this is pretty uneventful, actually." It happens so often that I find myself completely uninterested. Every character introduced is completely flat, the buildup to anything and everything is pretty poor, and to top it all of...the story isn't actually there? Well, the story is terribly lacking at the very least.

Most manga/anime have at least one thing that can pull you in and catch your interest for a good while regardless of your tastes. I found none of that when I actually started reading the manga :/
Just chill out and concentrate...

Don't worry everyone!

Look at the Bright Side:
1) This series exists
2) The manga is still there to read
3) Episodes are free
4) Anime & Manga exist
5) There are many awesome series coming in the future


SOME people love to bitching around even though they are pirating.
