Japanese Title: ラストピリオド
The anime is based on Last Period -Story of The Never Ending Spiral-, an RPG strategy game developed and published by Happy Element K.K. It features cute chibi characters in SD form with flashy moving and exhilarating battle Fantasy RPG.
Last Period feels more like a mobile game’s tutorial mode than an anime. And it could have been since the series is based on a free mobile game that offers in-app purchases, made clear by the scene where the NPC is asking for real-world money instead of the in-game currency. I’m not entirely sure if the characters are just the avatars of people playing a game or the fantasy world exists. The countless cultural references, from the Team Rocket-style villains and the idol lover Gajeru to tokusatsu roll call and real-world business and landlord jokes, suggest that this is either an attempt to relatable comedy or the characters really know what they are talking about.
In other words, this feels more like an advertisement for the game (or an anime for the fans) than a stand-alone production.
