Frankly, this was just bad. To add insult to the injury, the anime itself is well made, including script and direction, but the 6-minute format simply strangles it dead.

You may be able to guess that you might be watching a piece of something good, but what you’re actually watching would be artificial and hollow.

The only good thing was that I learned how to say “please be my girlfriend”: オレと付き合って(つきあって)くれ. Utterly useless, since I’m married, but I cannot leave an anime without salvaging something, even if a little bit.

Liked: Umm… no.
Rewatch: No.

FRIDGE UPDATE: Coincidently, Moero Amazon reported on Keitai Shoujo today. The entry is largely non-judgemental, as far as I can tell. She was a little concerned that the anime would become “muddy” (どろどろ)… I cannot understand Japanese to puzzle that message out. Also, she hasn’t seen the final episode… I don’t know why.
