After accidentally falling into the oven as he was being removed, Kogepan, a piece of red bean bread, became burned. Unlike the other breads such as Kireipan and Ichigopan, Kogepan is somber and has a dark sheen. However, he’s joined by others that are burned just like he is, and together all of the baked goods have fun together talking about life and even taking a trip to the beach.
Ryoku, Aru, Muha, Ron, Hana, Cafe and Chai are colorful tea-dogs who want nothing more than to enjoy each other's company and be friends. Along with the finicky tea-cats, this group of companions will learn valuable lessons about life and friendships, in this quiet 5-minutes-per-episode series filled with positivity and morals.
Both Kogepan and Ocha-ken teach small life lessons through very short episodes, encouraging the viewers to be themselves and find their place in life. Both are made for small children and are cute.
Both of these series have a similar sort of 'cute factor'. If you liked the gentle nature of one, and found yourself smiling at it then you may well enjoy the other. Both have a reasonable dose of humour about them, and since both are quite short episode durations, it's easy to just watch one when you have a spare five minutes.
Dogtato-kun is one of the many half-animal/half-vegetable inhabitants of Veggietown! Along with Croconion, Cucumbird, Hedgetato and the rest of the gang, Dogtato-kun and Veggietown's edible dwellers will have fun, fall in love, and make new friends, all without losing a leaf!
Both series are cut into very small (5-10 minutes) episodes with rather simple Japanese language. Because of the cute and simplistic presentation, they are ideally suited for small children to learn Japanese, but might also help adults to do so. The episodes can all be watched independently from each , in any order, and follow small and not at all complicated storylines that feature the main ideas of friendship, respect and conflicts or problems going along with those.
Both Kogepan and Dogtato-kun are made for small children and feature cute characters. The series are organized as little stories cut into very short sequences.
It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s Afro-ken! He can blend into a flock of sheep, be a makeshift tree in an orchard, act as a stunt double for beer foam, and even replace the clouds in the sky; all without ever saying a word! Watch Afro-ken as he skips through the streets of Japan, bounds through fields of cotton candy, and fends off caveman attackers in ancient times; all without breaking a sweat! But can he manage to avoid being struck by lightning yet again?
Afro-ken and Kogepan are both a little bit odd. In my opinion, Kogepan may be watched a little bit more by younger audiences. Afro-ken is a little cute dog thing and Kogepan is a little cute bread thing. So if you like little cute things and anime that lean a little bit towards the younger audiences, watch both of these.
One day, Dejiko, Puchiko and the strange ball-shaped Gema-Gema crash land their UFO in the middle of Akihabara.

Alongside Dejiko’s self-confessed rival Rabi-en-Rose, as well as a mysterious bear that has mastered the ability to appear happy, sad, depressed and angry all at once, the insanity is only just beginning! From shooting window shoppers with Dejiko’s Laser Eye Beam and the appearance of a bizarre farting impostor, to a sudden attack on the city by Godzilla, life at Gamers is certainly livening up.
