Entry #9: Teekyuu (Seasons 1-8) (SoA 2017)

teekyuu

(Recommended, once again, by not-so-plain pasta.)

As many different ways as one can tackle this series, there’s one thing everyone can agree on: Teekyuu is pretty eccentric.

It’s short.

It’s fast.

It’s random.

It’s absurd.

It’s energetic.

It’s explosive.

With only two-minute episodes, this rambunctious short anime series is dedicated to cramming events that would normally take half an episode into bite-size portions.

Charming through sheer force of will.

Anime on crack; there’s little else to say about it.

Scenes fly by at the speed of sound.

Characters are little different from one another, but have little quirks that differentiate them aside from hair color.

Almost as though the series was inspired by WarioWare or Elite Beat Agents.

The series is like candy: small, sweet, and not very filling.

It could also make your head hurt.

(I’m still recovering.)

Typically basic entertainment, though sometimes very witty.

Each season is basically the same.

Marathoning this is a bad idea, but with short spurts, this short series is almost recommendable.

If only for its absurdity.

Seriously, the shit that’s shown in this series.

Holy hell.

Personal Score: D+

Critical Score: C-

    • 8 seasons of Teekyu is actually only about the same as 6 episodes of a standard length anime. It’s just that fast. I’m still not sure of the wisdom of watching them all in one go, and I really liked the series!

  1. My husband described Teekyuu as ‘they took out the excess frames so they could put in more gags’. I’m impressed with you making it to the end! It’s not long as such, but it does feel like 20 minutes of gags were condensed into 2 minutes. Life feels a little slow after Teekyuu.
