Honoka is an ATHEIST and gets bullied around by TWO MEAN GIRLS. She’s also a very lonely girl, who lost her parents(?). One night, she suddenly gains faith and prays to God… who sends down a baby devil… okay then.
Honoka finds the baby the next morning and reacts like any normal 14-year old kid; which is to say she has no clue wtf to do with the baby. Of course, there are BABY SHENANIGANS, such as Honoka playing peek-a-boo to calm down the crying baby; and also a poop joke (2:30 minutes in, that must be a world record).
Honoka finds out the baby’s name is “Mao,” (from a bib) after which he starts crying… AGAIN. Honoka deduces that the baby must be hungry, and so goes off to buy milk (dressing the baby up in some kind of dragon stuffed animal suit). On the way, she comes across the school grounds and realizes that… shit, she still has school! Unfortunately, she meets up with the two bullies again, who spy her “ditching school.” They promise not to tell and dumps a month’s worth of cleaning duties on her.
Honoka starts crying (she cries as much as Mao does…) causing the baby to get mad. And then MAO USED FLAMETHROWER on the two bullies. It is SUPER EFFECTIVE!
Oh my god this series is so stupid, I CAN’T…
It is only five minutes long, so not much PLOT (or character personality…) really gets through. The whole series is packed full of cliches and predictable gags. The animation isn’t terrible but it’s obviously drawn in a way that’s aimed at little girls. Everything about this series is just… really stupid. But at the same time, I found it strangely entertaining… I suppose it’s what you’d call “so bad it’s good.”
The five minute time limit actually works in favor with a series like this, because if it was a full 30 minutes I’m afraid the world might implode from so much concentrated idiocy. I suppose this series is “cute” but it’s cute in an almost annoying, diabetes-inducing way.
In the end, I was still somewhat entertained. I also laughed a bit; but probably for all the wrong reasons… Since each episode is so short, I might blog this series. Who knows?
Out of five:
I’m sorry this review is so QUALITY but the show itself is pretty much made of QUALITY.
