Kyoukai Senki (13 episodes, 24 minutes) Futuristic post-war Japan is divided into four military regions, each led by conflicting nations trying to gain complete control over the country.

There is a doctor and apprentice who fights the disease, which modern medicine cannot cure.

One-line summary: girls at theatre school
I've since finished it and... I loved it! We also bought the manga.
The Kouka School of Musical and Theatrical Arts is this show's fictional equivalent of the all-female Takarazuka Revue. It's enormously popular and every year gets far more applicants than it accepts. Our heroine is Ai Narata, who either has a mild phobia or an extreme dislike of men. She got booted from her previous job as an idol for telling a male fan to his face that he was creepy and she thinks the Kouka School is paradise because boys can't get in.
That said, though, she's also chilly towards girls. And her mother. And the whole world, really. I didn't like her.
Narata's new "friend" Sarasa Watanabe, though, made me laugh. (Sarasa thinks they're friends, anyway. Narata has absolutely no such intention and is a bit of a bitch towards her.) I'm not particularly interested in anime about theatre school, but I'm definitely interested in the adorable and enormously tall Watanabe.

Episodes: 12 x 4 minutes
Keep watching: no
One-line summary: crossover chibi gag anime
It's a lot like Isekai Quartet... theoretically. Except nowhere near as good. They're both crossover chibi gag anime, one taking the mickey out of Key's romantic visual novels and the other Kadokawa's isekai franchises. Personally, though, I think Isekai Quartet's cast is inherently funnier, being full of "heroes" who are canonically evil, lazy and/or scumbags.
Yumemi Hoshino shows Ushio Okazaki a planetarium.
A girl complains that three boys aren't disappearing fast enough and that they're stopping her from getting intimate with Riki. They say they love Riki much more than she does and there's a fight.
There are dramatic scenes with appropriate music... briefly, until this gets undercut for comedy. "Please forget about me! Act like I never existed in the first place!" says a girl. In fact, she's been caught nicking taiyaki. Her boy points out a few home truths and soon she's asking the police to hurry up and take her away.
The parodies are sort of okay. I don't mind them. They might even be funny if I did a big Key rewatch, but I'll put this series on hold until that day.
Paper Rabbit Rope
Kamiusagi Rope
Paper Rabbit Rope
2 minutes, but the show started in 2009
Keep watching: no
One-line summary: negligible animation and apparently no script
A rabbit, a squirrel and a leopard sit around and eat corn-on-the-cob. That's it. (The animals chat like people, albeit unscripted and fairly boring ones, and certainly aren't trying to eat each other. They're all the same size. Maybe the leopard's a cat?)
That said, though, the episode's lack of animation might be built into the premise. Like Yamishibai, I think it's imitating traditional Japanese paper theatre. These are 2D animals that move like paper cut-outs and have fasteners at their bodies' joints.
Kaoru no Taisetsuna Mono
Kaoru no Taisetsu na Mono
Season 1
Episodes: 50 x 1 minute
Keep watching: no
One-line summary: spin-off of Kichikujima with super deformed characters
It's better than I'd expected, because the cast are kind of scary. Some pig-thing eats lots of kakegoori and this ends with Sinister Jesus Bloke getting out a chainsaw. (He only attacks an ice block, but even so.)
What's Kichikujima? No idea. Google, google... ah, it's a horror manga about university students shipwrecked on a deserted island with a serial killer. (Also known as Freak Island.) On reflection, that fits. Presumably it's deliberate that Pig Head Boy reminds me of Lord of the Flies, then?
Karada de Kaiketsu Hyakkiya  Tantei Jimusho
Karada de Kaiketsu Hyakkiya Tantei Jimusho
Episodes: 4 x 16 minutes
One-line summary: detective story hentai
"My name is Hyakkiya Hikari. I am a detective who runs an agency in this town! I love comics about detectives. I hate evil hearts! I started this job from my hobby of snooping around and fighting evil every day!"
She has a talking cat who can change gender and tells her when the phone's ringing. Interestingly, this really is a (supernatural) detective series. Hikari's cases all have hentai content, since that's what this is, but there will be a mystery every episode and she'll solve it with genuine logical inferences. You'd never call it a great show, but it's watchable.

One-line summary: hentai
Our anti-hero pushes his penis into his step-sister's mouth and threatens to do the same with the other members of his not-blood-related family. (One mother, two sisters.) She caught him groping her sleeping mother. The episode continues along predictable and horrible lines. Eurgh.

One-line summary: warm-but-unsettling take on traditional folkore in a modern setting
I've since finished it and... it's pretty good.
A hairy bloke called Inugami visits a village. (No beard or moustache, but he's got quite a mane.) He's interested in a small boy called Doratabou who works in the fields all day and doesn't seem to have any friends. "No one else eats with me. They say I smell."
Shitty things happen. Scary things are said. It's a gentle episode, yet also capable of bloody violence. It's actually quite hard to say much about this episode without getting into spoilers, since the show's direction and even genre are unclear almost throughout. I'm quite looking forward to this series, although I'd have preferred the core cast not to be all-male. (One of the four is of unclear gender, but a bit of googling tells me that he doesn't like being mistaken for a girl.)
"When I was five, I killed Doratabou."
Kemonokko Tsuushin
Kemonokko Tsuushin: The Animation - Ushi Musume Bell
Kemonokko Tsuushin: The Animation - Nekomusume Nia
2 episodes
17 + 18 minutes
One-line summary: hentai
It's a good-natured semi-series. (The second episode is merely a similar story set in the same universe, with a different couple and no plot connections.) In both, a boy summons a magical beast girl without knowing what he's letting himself in for. Ep.1 is a girl-cow with breasts comparable in size to the boy's entire body, then ep.2 is a cat-girl.
Both episodes are nice and could almost be called romantic. The girls are the ones who initiate everything and are happy to have fun, while the boys are thoughtful and treat them well.
Kimi ga Suki
Kimi ga Suki. The Animation
Episodes: 2
25 + 27 minutes
One-line summary: romantic hentai
Two episodes, each split into two stories with one inexperienced couple each. They're all told from the girl's point of view. She's the one who has to chase the boy (e.g. she'll be the one with condoms at the ready), but it's not that she's not a man-eater or anything. She specifically likes him. One of the stories even has a postscript in which he proposes and they get married.
Ep.1's couples are Natsu-Jun and Kana-Kei.
1. Natsu is riding on the back of Jun's bicycle when she invites him to watch the fireworks display at her place tonight. The two of them are actually quite funny together.
2. Kana's just passed her exam! "Did you forget your promise from a year ago?"
Kei-chan looks awkward and says he forgot, which I don't believe for a moment. Kana clobbers him for it. "You promised we'd have sex when I passed my exam! I've been waiting for a very very long time!"
This one's thoroughly nice. It's got sex scenes, yes, but even those are charming.
Kimi Fit Boxing
Kimi to Fit Boxing
Episodes: 12 x 3 minutes
Keep watching: no
One-line summary: a short anime television series adaptation of the Nintendo Switch game called Fitness Boxing
I'm not convinced I even managed to find this.
The first related-looking thing I found on YouTube was talking about Fitness Boxing, but was actually two super-deformed anime girls reviewing How Heavy Are the Dumbbells You Lift?, an anime that also happens to feature fitness boxing. (They seemed to disapprove of it.) This also had a CGI skeleton doing boxing moves in the background.
The next thing I found looked more like what I'd expected and was certainly publicising the Nintendo Switch game, but didn't actually have any content at all. Pretty girl, presented first as an anime-style character and then as a CGI boxer. Enthusiastic voice-over. It's just a commercial.
Neither of these feels like the thing I was supposedly looking for, but it's not as if I'd been expecting that to be super-remarkable either.
king dom

Episode 82: "Rise of a Young General"
Keep watching: no
One-line summary: historical about China's Warring States period
More war. Five nations have attacked the country of Qin! Battle fighting battle battle battle. Oh, look, a pale blue guy with vein patterned lines on his face. A female general with big boobs is briefly glimpsed, which will be wildly ahistorical and a vain attempt to stop this show being overwhelmingly, one-dimensionally male. Fight fight fight war battle battle battle end credits.
I don't see the point. It's 24 furiously non-stop minutes of nothing that looks likely to develop even occasional points of interest, as far as I'm concerned.
Kings Raid Ishi o Tsugu Monotachi

King's Raid: Ishi o Tsugu Mono-tachi
Season 1
Episode 15 of 26
Keep watching: no
One-line summary: mildly epic-ish fantasy
I'd already decided not to watch this in 2020, but this episode wasn't trying very hard to change my mind. It starts with ten predictable minutes of battlefield confrontation between the forces of darkness (Dark Elves) and darkness (Demons and a necromancer).
After that, for the first time, the episode gives us people having a conversation. Unfortunately, one of those is the show's one-dimensional hero, Kaasel. He's determined to get up and retrieve the Holy Sword!
After that, I fast-forwarded. This show's orcs look more like trolls to me, incidentally.
Kintamani  Dog
Kintamani Dog
Episodes: 50 x 1 minute
Keep watching: couldn't find it in the first place
I couldn't find the show itself, but I did at least find proof of its existence. Three girls try to persuade us to buy merchandise from the show. T-shirts, bags, etc. I presume they're from the voice cast. Unsurprisingly, the prettiest one stands in the middle and does most of the talking.
I think we can safely assume that the show's not worth hunting down. Generally speaking, good stuff tends to get out there in the wild. Anything you can't find for the life of you, even on the internet, is likely to be something nobody cared about in the first place.
Kiratto Prichan
Kiratto Pri Chan
Sixth show in the "Pretty Series" franchise
Episodes: 153 x 24 minutes
Keep watching: no
One-line summary: nonsense for small girls
There's a plot, which is something I don't remember encountering before in Kiratto. One of our schoolgirl heroines, Eve, gets snatched by a monster... but is it real? (I'm not actually sure.)
"The Tower of the Moon is actually a virtual tower that exists in a game world created by Kagayaki Corporation. Would you like to become characters in the game 'PriChan fantasy'? In that case, I'll send over the game app, so please open it on your PritamaGO."
In practice, this is an excuse to genre-hop into sword-and-sorcery fantasy. Everyone becomes a knight, magic-user, ranger or whatever. There are also sodding fairies that say their names at the end of every sodding sentence. Twice, the plot stops for a song-and-dance idol number in costumes so elaborate that they're slightly creepy. Astonishingly intricate CGI dresses are being worn by motion-captured real human dancers, but more simply drawn anime faces have been cut-and-pasted on top. Brrrr.
Kirin Noop
Kirin the Noop
Episodes: 5 minutes
Keep watching: no
One-line summary: "A shadow painting anime about a timid giraffe named Noop and his hedgehog companion named Harry as they travel their distant star world helping each other."
What's a shadow painting anime? It's wacky, that's what it is. It looks as if Mick McMahon decided to invert the hues and brightness on everything he drew, turning white into black and other colours into goodness knows what. Kirin is blue with black splodges. Harry looks like a stylised detonation. There's no dialogue, but people talk a lot in incoherent noise-voices. (Like Pingu.)
This looks so cool that you might forget to pay attention to the storyline. Kirin wants to eat an apple. He dozily tries to eat spiky Harry and fails. They do stuff and reach the apple, hurrah! Don't ask me for more details, but it's pretty cool.

Episodes: 12 x 25 minutes
Keep watching: no
One-line summary: cooking show with apprentice geisha in Kyoto
It's nice. The cast are likeable. The animation's extremely simple, but never mind that. I was quite enjoying the episode, with Kiyo supporting her friend Sumire at geisha school... but then I started wondering if the show was going to have a plot.
Kiyo cooks some food. (It's pudding a la mode with a whipped cream garnish.) She then cooks some more. And cooks. And cooks. This is a cooking anime, isn't it? The show's wholesome, soothing, etc. but I'll be running away at top speed.
Koi to Yobu ni wa Kimochi Warui
Koi to Yobu ni wa Kimochi Warui
Season 1
Episodes: 12 x 23 minutes
Keep watching: no
One-line summary: love stalker comedy
Ryou Amakasu is a scumbag. Even his sister says so. We first see him in a bedroom with a girl. "What was her name again?" he wonders, then gets dressed and leaves without even replying when she speaks to him. (His female colleagues at work think he's awesome, cool and hot, though.)
Later, a schoolgirl unfortunately saves his life and tells him that he's a creep when he offers sex by way of thanks. Her name's Ichika Arima. Amakasu falls in exaggerated love with her and becomes her financially generous stalker.
Some American reviewers of this have had conniptions at the age gap, since Arima's 17 and Amakasu's a decade or so older. Another reason to avoid this series, though, is "Bloody hell, he's annoying."
komi cannot communicate
Komi Can't Communicate: Season 1
Komi-san wa Comyushou desu. Season 1
Episodes: 12 x 24 minutes
Keep watching: yes
One-line summary: socially incompetent relationship comedy
I've since finished it and... it's wonderful. Season 2 is too.
Tadano Hitohito is an ordinary boy with a forehead-slapping billboard name and the objective of avoiding trouble. Komi-san is incredibly beautiful, sitting next to him in class (so the rest of the class all hate him) and a total goofball.
Komi-san has a problem that you can probably guess from the show's title. Komi-san has huge comedy eyes and is adorable. The episode can be very funny when it wants to be, but it's not making light of Komi-san's issues and their slowly unfolding relationship ended up being lovely. I see the original manga also has a live-action TV adaptation. I might check that out too.
Konbini Shoujo
Konbini Shoujo Z
Four 16-minute episodes
One-line summary: hentai
The manager of a 7/11 convenience store has security footage of shoplifters. He confronts them in private (one girl per episode). They tend to have an attitude, but soon agree to perform personal services to hush up the evidence.
There's nothing interesting about any of this, but it's inoffensive. There's no rape or anything. The girls are presented as being reasonably consenting about the arrangement.
Kono Kaisha Nanika Okashii
Kono Kaisha... Nanika Okashii!
Episodes: 2 x 16 minutes
One-line summary: hentai
"I got hired this spring after graduation. To become a fully functional member of this company, I'm doing my best to learn from my higher-ups and seniors. And today as usual..."
"Ayaka-chan! Can you come here for a sec?"
"Y-yes." (She has a slightly disgusted expression on her face.)
She's ordered to pick up an eraser without bending her knees and while sticking her arse out as far as possible. It's actually a sticker on the floor, not a real eraser, but... "What's the matter? Hurry up and pick it up. You can't stand up until you get it."
Ayaka tells us that this kind of sexual harrassment happens daily, but that was negligible compared with what's coming later. It keeps getting worse. The girls are assigned new "uniforms" (i.e. gym kit with inadequate skirts). The men flip skirts and grope naked boobs. One masturbates on his desk in the middle of work and forces Ayaka to perform fellatio because he didn't have a tissue. "My desk didn't get dirty thanks to you."
The next thing she sees is a queue of men lining up to have sex with a woman who's saying, "I'm begging you, let me go already. Please, let me go now."
No. No, no. The episode eventually reveals that this latest victim used to be a sex addict, etc. but why should that justify even the tiniest bit of what this company's male employees are doing? There are companies out there where things like this really happened and the correct punishment for it would be jail sentences. It's horrendous.
Kumo no Ue Itsumo Hare
Kumo no Ue wa Itsumo Hare
Episodes: 1 x 18 minutes
One-line summary: powerful character study
It's on YouTube, albeit in Japanese without subtitles. The animation's so bad that it's hard to imagine this being the work of professionals, although the background paintings are lovely and the soundtrack's almost solid enough to make up for it. The story, though, is surprisingly strong.
A schoolgirl gets up and eats breakfast. Dad apologises for being unable to come and see her football match, but promises to come when she makes it to the nationals. It's all looking very relaxing and slice-of-life until something happens that makes everything very heavy, very quickly.
It's tackling pretty heavy material. Our heroine can't handle it... but then she meets one of dad's colleagues and has an important conversation. Ultimately, this is a positive story that I'm glad to have seen.
kuroinu 2
Kuroinu II The Animation
Episodes: 1 x 27 minutes
One-line summary: dark fantasy hentai
The original Kuroinu was a notorious six-episode hentai series from 2012-18. Very few hentai get remembered, but this one did. It had a fantasy setting with dark elves, humans and a third side of mercenaries who declare war on both sides and commit the worst atrocities of all. It showed lots of what happens to the victims in the aftermath of battle. Especially the female ones. Even queens and princesses weren't exempted from violation.
This 2021 follow-up starts with a decapitation. Soldiers are looting and pillaging a city. "We are now in full control of the area, captain," says a dark elf. She's not bothered by the rape of enemy civilians. "The acquisition of slaves is more or less completed."
We then see a female demon cut off a man's penis with her blade-tail. After all, he's useless because he can't get an erection right now. Fortunately, our heroine still has five men to pleasure her (simultaneously) and a bishop on standby for use in a minute or two. (They appear to be in a cathedral.)
She then tries to bully a female priest into joining in.
Later, there will be a meeting of the heroic countries, with beautiful, buxom representatives. (I could really have lived without one of them being child-sized.) They want to defeat evil and put the world to rights. Unfortunately, a dark elf can see the future (while sucking off an emperor) and what she sees is bad.
"Those young ladies who are as pretty as flowers are captured. These people up here are the ones who envied the Cuntry's prosperity and were foolish enough even to wage war. Why don't we make them realise the fact that the Cuntry shall never fall for eternity!"
"We'll use you as our sexual outlet until you end up loose and baggy!"
Terrible things happen next.
Kyoto Animation Meiji hen
Kyoto Animation: Meiji-hen
30 seconds
One-line summary: commercial themed around the light novel Nijuuseiki Denki Mokuroku.
Its visuals are mildly Ghibli-esque. It's not attempting a plot, but is instead just trying to be a charming little throwaway. It starts in what looks like historical Kyoto (could be 100 years ago) and ends up transforming into a futuristic (but still attractive) city with rocket ships.
The production history, though, is tragic.
The original light novel was published by Kyoto Animation themselves, under their KA Esuma Bunko imprint, and they announced in 2018 that they'd be adapting it into an anime. Unfortunately, many of the studio's projects went on hiatus in 2019 after an arsonist burned down their main production office and killed 36 of their employees.
As far as I know, these thirty seconds are the only Nijuuseiki Denki Mokuroku animation to be released to date.
Kyoto Animation Souzou hen
Kyoto Animation: Souzou-hen
30 seconds
One-line summary: advert
Like the other Kyoto Animation advert, it's a thirty-second exercise in playing with attractive visual ideas. I get the impression that these were adverts for Kyoto Animation itself, i.e. the production company. Spreading the brand to try to attract more fans? Announcing that they're back in business? Encouraging people to apply to work for them?
Well, that's not too important. This one's about a boy and a girl who've always loved living in a world of imagination... but it's also showing us a glimpse of their everyday lives. (The boy picks up a glove that the girl's dropped and gives it back to her.) The piece is lovely to look at and I enjoyed it.
