Welcome to Anime of the week number 39. Do you like comedy? Do you like unique artstyles? Then I got the anime for you! The anime is The Tatami Galaxy.
Season 1 ~ Apr 23, 2010 to Jul 2010 (Spring 2010)
One autumn evening at a mysterious ramen stand behind the Shimogamo Shrine, a lonely third-year college student bumps into a man with an eggplant-shaped head who calls himself a god of matrimony. Meeting this man causes the student to reflect upon his past two years at college—two years bitterly spent trying to break up couples on campus with his only friend Ozu, a ghoulish-looking man seemingly set on making his life as miserable as possible. Resolving to make the most out of the rest of his college life, the student attempts to ask out the unsociable but kind-hearted underclassman Akashi, yet fails to follow through, prompting him to regret not living out his college life differently. As soon as this thought passes through his head, however, he is hurtled through time and space to the beginning of his years at college and given another chance to live his life.
Tatami Galaxy is a very enjoyable anime, introducing unique things every episode which makes it very innovative and original, the core of the anime is it’s art which introduces something new in every episode, and there is always a new character to introduce, and always keeping that authenticity of the characters and using them again in another episode, there is always this underlying thing between each character which makes them interesting and weird, it really shows each episode. The art is really weird but pretty cool, sometimes the art direction is totally different in an episode and it gets weird but at the same time keeping that interest in while watching it. I really liked it and would recommend it to anyone who wants to enjoy an anime that doesn’t fall short.
1 season – 12 episodes
