Short Anime Review: Inugami-san to Nekoyama-san

Year: 2014
Length: 12 Short Episodes
Genre: Comedy, Slice of Life, Yuri

Story: 6.5/10 & Characters: 8/10
It’s a short anime, so there is not that much going on. It’s just Inugami and her friends doing random (yuri) things and being cute and funny while doing so.

What’s supposed to make this show interesting is the fact that most characters resemble specific animals. So you’ll find characters that are supposed to resemble cats, dogs, mice, monkeys, and cows.

In my opinion, they should have left out all the side characters and focused on Inugami and Nekoyama, our two protagonists. Instead. Aki is, of course, a very important key character as well. Without her, most of the really hilarious moments would have been missing. However, who knows what Inugami would have done to Nekoyama if Aki hadn’t been around…. I’ll leave you to decide whether this is a good or a bad thing.

I for one, absolutely loved her sarcastic comments and her horrified facial expressions whenever Inugami decided to do something “stupid” again~

My favorite character, though, is definitely Inugami herself. She’s totally random and fun, and she also loves cute girls and cats. That’s a pretty good combination I think~

Animation: 6/10 & Music: 6/10
The animation of this show definitely can’t be compared to the animation of most shows this season, but this is just a short show, so that’s barely surprising.

Talking about the music, I can’t say much, because I pretty much didn’t notice the background music at all.

Yuri: 9/10
While I think the yuri level couldn’t be any higher in this short anime, I also feel like there wasn’t enough yuri at all. Weird, huh?

It’s obvious that Inugami and Nekoyama have a thing for each other, and the same goes for the 2 other pairs as well, but at the same time, there wasn’t much romance at all. And unfortunately, we also didn’t get a real kiss…. Ah well, I still can’t really let that affect this rating, since this anime definitely is yuri overload.

No kisses, but this…. It’s kinda nice as well. 😉

Total Enjoyment: 8/10
Even though this show was both too short and ended up being pretty random, I loved it! The yuri level was really high, the comedy was great, and I loved most of the characters. I would love to see this as an actual anime, instead of just short clips, but this is definitely fine as well. The more yuri, the better, right?

  1. Whooo! No more commas! 😀

    Anyway, you definitely liked the show more than I did. I probably would have given it a 7. Focusing more on the main three would have been good. I've already forgotten about most of the others, but I think I'm too forgetful, so it's probably just me.

    Would a Saburouta penned doujin based on this tickle your fancy? (assuming they're not animals down there :P)


  2. Hey, I didn't do that on purpose 😛

    Any doujin by Saburouta would be great~
    And why did you have to add that they're not animals down there, no one said that it should be a NSFW one
    (though I'd really like that :D)


  3. i felt the same way about the yuri aspects of the anime it was good but i also felt there wasnt enough. but now we must play the waiting game and wait for more yuri animes to be announced or released


  4. Other than the few shows with yuri potential that will start airing in a few days, we already know of one show that will probably be pretty yuriish.
    Well, we still don't have much information about this one, but if you haven't heard about it yet, it's called Yuri Kuma Arashi.
    Judging from the artist of the manga this will be based on, we could expect a lot of yuri from this one~


  5. I look forward to seeing how Inugami will fare in a certain annual competition I'll be hosting.
    The preached to the choir “should have been longer” comment applies here but most yuri shows we've seen over the years that had no definitive conclusions needed to be longer.


  6. That's true, but when talking about yuri shows, I think we can agree to the fact that we probably want all yuri shows to be at least a little longer 😛
