Mystery Meat: Teekyu

Today's Mystery Meat is "Teekyu". It's a micro-anime: twelve episodes of only 2 minutes each. The OP is 30 seconds, so each episode is 90 seconds of concentrated merriment. (It says here...)

It feels cramped, for want of a better term. Once the OP is done, the dialogue begins, and it never stops until the end. Everyone talks fast and there are no pauses between characters. It's like the whole cast was overdosed on caffeine the whole time.

The animation isn't very good. There isn't actually all that much animation; it's mostly stills.

And the character designs are very basic, both in terms of how they look and how they act.

Was it funny? I didn't find it so. A lot happened but I don't remember even grinning once about any of it. Even with only two minute episodes I found myself bored and stopped after the fourth.

1 I'm considering the 2 to 5 minute series and the best were knock-offs like To Heart DVD pack-ins. Well, there's this newcomer AIURA, but it's just a studio showcase and thigh fetish. It's a tricky format in which to work.

2 Marie & Gali was good. Those were 5 minutes, counting OP and ED. In four minutes you can set up a decent joke. 90 seconds just isn't long enough.
