It is flash animation that lasts 8 minutes or so, so don't expect too much.

It is heartwarming at certain points but it certainly feels odd: the moe roach thinks like a human girl but has to suffer terrible fate many times that would have killed a real roach. The voice of Noto is really soothing though -- always reminds me of Inia in Total Eclipse...

Producer 1: “We need a new moe anime.”
Producer 2: “How about Cockroaches?”
Producer 1: ”What?!”
Producer 2: “They are voiced by Noto and Kugimiya.”
Producer 1: “...that might work...”

No new news??

To understand "moe"fication of cockroach...

There is a Japanese nursery rhyme, Tenohira wo Taiyou ni (The sun through my palms)
Lyrics Tenohira Wo Taiyou Ni

This song says...
Even the worms, even the crickets
Even the water striders
We’re all, all alive
We’re all friends

Even the dragonflies, even the frogs
Even the honeybees
We’re all, all alive
We’re all friends

Now, new one, cockroach have been added.

the manga is pretty likable . the anime could be a good kid's show, what with animal mc thing happening and kids being able to relate to small animals for some reason.
though..god knows they're probably gonna chuck in some fan service and all that crap for the sake of sex sells and horny manchildren . argh.

No matter how bad this is.... I'm still going to watch it.

Loli cockroaches, I'm not sure I want that (I'm not that desperate for loli) but Rie is voicing one of them so it could be at least ok and worth a chance.

The title is an absolute turn off though.
