Plastic Nee-san

While it's not a perfect anime, It's kind of unfair to rate and review an anime for something that it explicitly does not have. In this case, it's a plot. This a short episode anime for crying out loud! You expect a well-written story out of it? Yes. I am calling out the reviews for this anime and as well as other Skit comedy animes.

This is a comedy anime. SNL doesn't have a plot, does it? Skit comedy. That's what this anime is. So? How do we review and rate a comedy anime? By weighing out the comedy! Rate and review its skit, its punchlines! Not the Plot! Why? because it doesn't have one.

"But, It doesn't make sense." Of course it doesn't! This is Japanese humor. But unfortunately, one cannot say about the objectivity of reviewing comedy animes. Everyone has their own pet peeves when it comes to humor. 

Let's be quick about reviewing it. It's hella funny. It's worth 27 minutes of my time more so than other popular animes out there. This anime is age-appropriated. It's target audiences lie more upon 20 year olds and above. One of the reasons why the skits are hits and miss is also related to the targeted audiences. Remember, this was written and made for a Japanese Male Audience aged 20 and above. It wasn't specifically made to please Naruto, Bleach or One Piece fans or those looking for related animes of such. Raunchy, naughty, innuendos and random jokes abound. Read: SEINEN 

Music, again, since this anime is age-appropriated to Seinen audiences there are music clips that are bound to go unnoticed by a younger crowd. "All day and All of the Night" by the Kinks can be heard as background music which is a nod to my liking. The short anime's music is well, short and unsold aside from that nod I have mentioned earlier there's nothing else to it since the opening and ending songs are opposite the anime, it's bland.

Characters: Funny, inappropriate and random. Those are the three major characteristics of the characters here. I need not delve further, since all you need to know are the three major ones, Makimaki is a "normal" girl? Idk. Don't fit the crazy mold and doesn't fit the normal either...

Nee-san is illogical, childish and for the most part, inappropriate. She brings the silly in this show and Okappa is the straight, utterly raging angry opposite to her. Okappa can go from Nice to Tokyo Ghoul in a blink of an eye. 0-100 real quick.

Overall, this COMEDY anime is hella funny. There is nothing to sell short here, its funny, inappropriate and complete random (i.e. Walking around Akihabara) It goes straight to point, it never diverges anywhere: "Oh you want funny?" "Well here's funny and shove it in yo mouth."
