Tachumaru Gekijou Episode 1
What this is about: Watching all of the anime shows so you don’t have to! For more information about me and my reviews, click here for details on what I am reviewing.
Series Premise: Tachumaru Gekijou is a series of minute-long short animated shows, starting in October 2010. Taking characters from the decades-old history of Tatsunoko Productions and reduced into ultra-super-deformed format, the characters get involved in various humorous situations.

ep. tl;dr review: Short stupid joke followed by short stupid joke followed by credits, the end.
Episode summary: Gatchapen (Gatchaman + Penguin) is playing golf, is bothered by a bee, swings at it so hard that he takes off like a helicopter. Then Piyotan (Golden Warrior Lightan + Chicken) uses a box to reach higher up on a vending machine, and is checked out by two passing women.
My Impressions: How much time should I spend reviewing an anime “show” that is a combination of two 30 second jokes followed by 30 seconds of credits? Hm, well, if you’re read this far, then the answer is already “Too much”.
Maybe if you had a raging hard-on for really old shows and knew the characters, you might have some slight interest. But the jokes are ultra-lame, and the quality so low that it looks like something a first-year animation class student would slap together in a weekend. A short weekend.
The verdict: – Only one minute long, but not even worth wasting that much time on it.
