Japanese Title: Near Death!! Ekoda-chan
The story focuses on Ekoda-chan. Nude model, hostess, telephone operator and whatever else, she takes on various jobs, living through the days. Even though she has a boyfriend he doesn’t really treat her like ‘the one’ but more like a ‘for now’. The good looking girls (she calls them moukin (=bird of prey)) she sees while wandering through the city were declared her natural enemy. There are women with poisonous fangs at every street corner, every bar, every office. The creators recommend this story to all the ladies and gentleman out there, if they want to survive in this world.
This is one of those weird anime that break tradition and remind us that it’s nice to have something different once in a while. If you care about how anime are created, then you need to watch this series (it’s on Crunchyroll). The actual anime is just 3 minutes long and features very relatable (or not, depending on your genre and where you live) short life stories of Ekoda-chan, a 24-years-old Japanese woman who is just living her life. The rest of the episode is an interview with the creators, mainly the director and the voice actor who will be different for each episode. Intriqued? See the first episode and see how you feel about it. Even if you don’t follow the series, it will be worth your time.
