Tarepanda lives a happy and carefree life, but sometimes he needs to get out and go on a grand adventure. Rolling his way around the streets and down stairwells, Tarepanda finds himself in a variety of fun and interesting situations. Whether it's breaking bread with construction workers, lounging on a park bench, riding the train or becoming the subject of a painting, Tarepanda always manages to have a good time!
A very good full coloured mini-manga. The lazy panda is so cute that'll make you feel sorry for the people that leave him alone. The story feels likes a runaway adventure of a kid into the "jungle" that we are calling community. Some treat you with the back, some will be friendly with you but leave you after that and some will care about you and return you home. I loved the simplist art and the full couloured paged delighted my eyes.
I think a big part of why I didn't enjoy this all that much is that I don't find Tarepanda cute. I also didn't care for the partially colored, partially grayscale art style. I think it's supposed to be adorably funny seeing Tarepanda roll and flop around, since fe's too much of a blob to walk. In fact, it feels like the majority of feir movements don't even involve fem moving, but rather fem being moved by outside influences. Fe feels more like a stuffed animal than an actual animal (and feir non-expressiveness only adds to that). It's got some of that Forrest Gump type action going on. You know, always being where the action is by happenstance and ending up having a very eventful adventure. The problem is that the events Tarepanda's involved in by happenstance aren't very noteworthy--just citylife.
