Synopsis:

Twenty year-old Mikiko Oguro (known as Kuromi to her co-workers) has just entered the dream job of a lifetime -- animation! However, upon her arrival to the famed Studio Petit, Kuromi is in for a surprise: her predecessor just quit, leaving her with the project, and the seemingly unattainable deadline! Now, with only a week left until the key animation is due, Kuromi must wrangle up the group of slackers who must finish Time's Journey 2 before it's too late!

Jubei-chan: The Ninja Girl

Jubei-chan: The Ninja Girl

When a strange samurai tells her she is the successor of the swordsman Yagyu Jubei, Jiyu Nanohana refuses to believe him. But the descendants of Jubei's rivals have already sensed this, and one assassin after another is sent to attack Jiyu! Fortunately, Jubei left a little something for our heroine - a lovely heart-shaped eyepatch. As soon as Jiyu dons the eyepatch, she is overcome with Jubei's power and transforms into a ninja girl! Jiyu must put an end to the 300-year old feud between the samurai clans... before the feud puts an end to her.

The animation style in Jubei-chan and Animation Runner Kuromi are quite similar: characters become very two diminsional caricatures of themselves when put into stressful situations. The off-the-wall humor and endearing protagonist make each one a worthwhile watch.

Kamisama Hajimemashita

Kamisama Hajimemashita

Nanami used to live in a ramshackle apartment with her father - a man who spent half his time gambling and the other half hiding from debt collectors - until one day the scoundrel ran away, leaving his daughter hungry and homeless. That is, until she meets a mysterious stranger in the park who deems her the new goddess of a local shrine! Unfortunately, Nanami’s new home is occupied by Tomoe, a fox familiar who objects to the presence of a mere mortal and immediately begins to bicker with the girl. If she can manage to form a contract with the troublesome man, he’ll be obligated to accept and help her perform her duties. But there’s a catch: Nanami has to kiss him first, and who’d want to lock lips with that awful guy?!

Although the plots are pretty diferent, both have the same director, and you can see that gives them both the same sense of comedy & heartwarming scenes. Kamisama is more of a fantasy, while Kuromi is about making anime, but they both left me with a happy, heartwarming feeling.

Otaku no Video

Otaku no Video
  • OVA (2 eps x 48 min)
  • 1991

Ken Kubo is a normal man with a normal job who is besotted in a normal way with a female friend. But life turns distinctly abnormal when he meets an otaku, Tanaka, and is indoctrinated into the obscure world of anime, model guns, and garage kits. As Kubo finds himself shunned by those he cares about, he becomes only more determined to evolve into the ultimate being - the Otakuking! But Kubo is not the only one coming to terms with society. While he strives to mould the world into a perfect haven for people like him, otaku all across Japan are laying bare their strange, lonely lives for the first time… and it’s not a pretty sight.

Otaku no Video and Animation Runner Kuromi are each a comical look into sections of Japanese culture that people in other countries can only view from the outside. While there are obviously liberties taken with the plots, you'll find that there's just enough truth in each to make them painfully funny. Certainly worth a watch for a good laugh.

Animation Runner Kuromi and Sorcerer Hunters OVA have similar humor. If you liked the sometimes random and hyper pranks in one, I think you'd like the other.
