Ocha Ken

Alright, admit it.

You downloaded the first couple of eps because they were really small... and now you're addicted to the tiny cute stories, tea dogs and cats, and great music.

Let's hear from fans of ocha ken!

Anyone have any more information about this show?
Was it actually an anime before the products or vice-versa?

If this show is only meant to sell the plushies, then it has worked on me...

Ocha cha cha. Ocha. Ocha cha cha cha, Ocha ken.

Gee I was thinking of starting this topic up today. The narrator's voice really makes the show for me. I like the visual style too. I hardly ever run across a 5 minute feature I dislike so I pounced on this the minute Mognet started releasing it.

I have looked at the Sega website but it's really about the toys.

Did anyone notice the parody of Ocha-ken that was at the beginning of Galaxy Angel III episode 34?

I couldn't believe it at first... I wonder how many people got the reference.

I haven't seen Galaxy Angel, and that ep doesn't seem to be available for download. : (

What did they do that was a reference to Ocha Ken?

There was this sketchy thing about bathing in hot springs. It had this patchy visual style which could be construed as a nod to the look of Ocha-Ken.

I dunno.... Hate to be a prude, but I think ocha-ken would be a lot better without all the gore and fanservice.

It was more then simply the animation style... Millfiells voice over was a parody of the Ocha-Ken narrator. Mainly due to the cadence and tone used. Or maybe I'm insane.

I dunno... Hana's a pretty hot bit... I'm not going to use that tired joke.


I'm guessing since Galaxy Angel is making references to it, Ocha Ken is doing well in Japan.

Or is the children's story narrator with simple graphics something prevalent over there?

Well, Koge-pan was a bit like that too. There's probably other similar shows that don't make it to fansubs. It may be a common style for children's shows, or perhaps these short features may be segments out of some larger kids show.

Ocha-Ken

i wanna compliment the fansub grouo Mognet for giving us something unusual
I Luv Ocha-Ken
however it seems their 1st batch was a wee bit glitchy
where as your other batch isn't

and BitTorrent for the bundles don't work anymore (hmm,odd isn't it?)

i ask Mognet if they fix the gitchyness of the 1st batch and make the bundles have more seeds than it used to


NO negitivity on the Ocha-Neko or the Ocha-Ken i think their cuter than Hamtaro (next to Dogtato-kun... lol!)

I don't know what's more shameful: watching and thoroughly enjoying a show made for very young children, or reviving a three year-old topic.

I downloaded it recently and have watched it all, and I just want to say that this is how children's shows should be, IMO. I really like the artsiness, the simplicity, and the little not so obvious but nice life lessons at the end (unlike what was shown on dubbed Cardcaptors, Kero's corner... those were just unnecessary ). There are so many over-the-top shows here for kids; Ocha-ken is a real gem in that both adults and children can appreciate it.

I should add, I'm also a fan of Koge-pan. XD

Wow, it's been a while since I watched that. Ocha cha cha, ocha. Ocha cha cha cha ocha ken.
Why did you download it?

I watched Koge-pan a few years ago and a friend recently recommended that I try Ocha-ken because it's similar (layout-wise). Besides... the Ocha-ken are cute!

It took weeks to download though. No seeds! And I wasn't about to request any for such an old show. o_O

Like me, your friend has good tastes!

I'm trying to think of something to recommend too... um.... nothing else is a complete equivalent. These light-hearted anime shorts are also great, though none of them are targeted toward children like ocha ken:

Funny Pets - wordless CG anime, cute slapstick. Muggles like it too
Ichigeki Sacchuu!! Hoihoi-san - cute and fun little robots, but only one ep is available
Bottle Fairy - kinda long (12 min each), but a cute parody anime
Di Gi Charat - the originals were really short and awesome, cute insult humor
Sexy Commando - not so cute, but very funny if you're into weirdness humor

Thank you for your recomendations. I've already seen most of them, though.

This is a really nice accompanyment for things like Kappa no Kakaita or Post Pet Momobin, or other shorts like Hyaru Nyaru or Hetalia.
