After 75 seconds of credits, I learned this short format anime is about idols who would secretly save the world from an asteroid using a crane game. Also, their manager is a gorilla…or is s/he?

This show is essentially…not animated. In fact, the movements are so rare, deformed and mechanical that the only possible explanation I can think of is this intentionally mocks arcade claw games!

The voices tread close to fingernails-on-chalkboard cute. I lost the will to live long before the 4 minutes were over and it stopped playing.

This is how the machines win. #JohnConnor #skynet2016
