Tenchi Souzou Design-bu (Heaven's Design Team)



The manga series Tenchi Souzou Design-bu (Heaven's Design Team) is getting a TV anime adaptation.

Plot Summary

Quote:
In Heaven's Animal Design Department, designers create a variety of new animals daily while contending with the unreasonable requests of their client: God. Funny, interesting, and full of useful information, this series answers questions such as, "Why can't unicorns exist?", "What makes an animal taste delicious?", "What's the most powerful creature in the ocean?", and, "Bird versus snake: who would win?" You won't believe it's a manga series when you read up on the featured animals in the included encyclopedia entries. Heaven's Design Team will make your next trip to the zoo or aquarium 100 times more fun!

Looks like a very educational look on animals. I'm glad that we get more shows like this and Cells at Work.

I tried the manga when it debuted in the US, but it didn't thrill me enough to want to buy volume 2. Since Crunchyroll is streaming the anime, I thought I'd give the anime a try just in case. The animation, the voices, the sound effects, and a free-wheeling overall approach were enough of an improvement over the manga that I think I'll continue with the anime, but I doubt I'll ever go back to the manga.

I rather enjoyed the first episode. It was really cute.

What a fun show this is! It could become a stale, one-joke kind of show; if not, it could be one of my favorites this season.

My daughter is a Sagittarius. A couple years back I tried my hand at sculpting and made a fresco of a Sagittarius (or Secretary) bird as a present. So I had a pretty good idea where they were going during the snake segment.

Appropriately enough, Washimi, the executive secretary in Aggretsuko is also a secretary bird.



Here a look at one in action. They kill snakes by stomping on them, then devouring the entire snake in one gulp.

Almost impossibly this show seems even more ignored than Ramune, but it's really quite excellent. Way more interesting (and funny) than the Cells at Work franchise IMO.

This could have been the best episode yet. First we learn about the reproductive patterns of bears, then we get the hilarious quiz show. Learned a lot about penguins, too, like how long their legs are.

So, naked mole rat society is made up of lolis? Some would call it a perfect society to that point at least, except that they all have to eat their mother's poop.

Was a bit stumped by what the creatures were in the first part of this episode, first thinking "bees?" then once that was ruled out i had no idea. Just not thought of naked mole rats. They always remind me of Shin Sekai Yori though.

Did like the homage to the old Osamu Dezaki 'Postcard Memories' though.

I could have sworn last week's episode was the last. It felt like the last. But no, here's episode 13.
I totally wasn't expecting that.

I did guess where they were going with the "bird" though, as soon as I saw the beak.

Are we sure this wasn't two cour?
Wishful thinking, apparently a bonus episode which was supposedly exclusive to Amazon Japan. Still, nice bonus!

An April Fool's joke?

Great ep nonetheless, as they pretty much all have been.

Aha, that's why I couldn't find it on Amazon Prime in the US. I thought I read it was going to be streamed there, but I guess I got it confused with Amazon Japan. Anyway, great to hear there's a little gift for me over on the Crunchyroll site!

Educational, fun, and good art.

8/10.

Higuchi-san would love this article.

Quote:
So, what would a realistic King Kong look like? Well, he wouldn't be just like a normal gorilla except bigger. Since he's so massive, his arms and legs would have to be way thicker compared to his body than you would expect. He would probably look super weird with such huge arms. And this is exactly why he doesn't look like that. It would ruin the fun of the whole movie.
