If Ore Twintail ni Narimasu was a wild ride, then Plastic Nee-san is… also a wild ride.
A wilder ride, even.
Despite only being a single episode, or 12 two-minute episodes, it’s quite the anime!
I actually recognized a few scenes thanks to some anime gifs floating around the internet.
That’s how you know that this anime has something special going for it!
It’s hard to give any overview of Plastic Nee-san, because it’s so short and packed full of funny moments. Why read a long winded synopsis here when you can just watch it for yourself? It’s only 30 minutes!
So what I will say is that Plastic Nee-san is a very funny anime.
Very well done – the exact style of gag anime that I love.
If there is one aspect of gag / comedic anime that I love, it’s short scenes / skits. I’ve mentioned this many times before, such as my Dagashi Kashi post and even more recently in my This Art Club Has A Problem! Ep2 post.
When it comes to gag anime like Plastic Nee-san, there is very little in terms of depth. The anime is specifically trying to deliver a punchline to make the viewer laugh – that’s the goal. Character development, story, and any other overtones take a backseat to this goal. They can still happen (like in Saiki K.), but it’s not the primary intent. So it just makes sense that with this format, quantity is key. Short and frequent gags – deliver the punchline and move on. No getting caught up on anything too long-winded. If a joke doesn’t work out, the anime can quickly move onto the next one. Just a great format.
I’m glad I came across another anime to add to my list of quality gag anime, joining the ranks of The Disastrous Life of Saiki K., Daily Lives of Highschool Boys, and Dagashi Kashi S2. Plastic Nee-san is a great gag anime, the only real shame is that it’s only a single episode worth of content – it does feel longer though because of the sheer quantity of gags.
A nice comedic gem to have come across!
Plastic Nee-san also managed to produce a best girl in Okappa.
Always nice to come across a new best girl.
If you like comedy / gag anime, I absolutely recommend Plastic Nee-san.
I’m even going as far as to say this is a hidden gem, although I don’t know how hidden this anime really is. I hadn’t heard of it but I had seen gifs from it beforehand, so maybe it’s more popular than I had realized!
I will also grant Plastic Nee-san the Good Things Come In Small Packages award, for being the best 1 episode anime I’ve ever watched! A very fun anime.
It’s only 30 minutes!
Go and watch it for yourself! 🙂
Until next time!
Thanks for reading.
