Mori no Yousei: Kinoko no Musume – 01 (First Impressions)


for a short period of time, this character was on fire for some reason…

The Gist: A nationalist tourism piece for Japan that asserts that Anime (or Anime-chans) are real there. It’s set in a magical realm past the mushroom circles and gates found all over Japan.

It looks vaguely like an MMO running on a Sega Dreamcast and features looping character animations and empty conversations with random Anime-chans that can be found there, narrated and guided by a male fairy. There is forgettable JPop in the background.

The Verdict: thankfully, Mori no Yousei: Kinoko no Musume is only ten minutes long. That’s ten minutes longer than it could be and I have no understanding who this program is for, as it the low-poly models, hyper saturation, wash out, and light bloom make it look worse than most modern tablet games?

I don’t get this at all…

  1. Ahh Franklin. Always willing to taste everything, no matter the risk. Truly the Anthony Bourdain of our little blog. :)

    1. If it’s a first episode of a new show aired at the opening of the season, I just click and watch. I don’t read the summary. So I rarely know what it is until I click it!

  2. This thing is really perplexing. I suppose it’s so shit it doesn’t take much effort to produce, but why even bother airing it or streaming it on Crunchyroll then? I don’t get it.

      1. “Another one”? I commend you for finishing this episode. It took me all of ten seconds to start slowly backing away from my laptop and nope the hell out of there.
