Onigiri thrusts its players into mystical Japan, a land filled with mythical creatures of Japanese legend. Starting as a lone Oni, players fight against the malevolent influence of the Kamikui as their miasma spreads over the land. 8 NPCs, each with their own distinct personality and skills, ally themselves with the player to help build a legend, and quell the evil that has arisen. As you grow stronger together, so do the bonds binding you to each other.” -Anime News Network

Onigiri isn’t has intense as the description say….I’m sure they just took the summary from the game website, because the anime is actually based off of a MMORPG, that’s free to play. The shorts are pretty funny although they don’t really follow a particular path. I stuck around because of the great character designs, although some are sort of extreme, most of them are really nice. It’s absolutely hilarious that the only male character doesn’t have a seiyuu (voice actor) so they just put his dialogue on the bottom of the screen like a visual novel XD. I honestly wold’ve loved a longer version of this that had a more serious attitude. I see lots of potential, but since it’s just shorts, it limits the story telling and character development. There are many fourth wall breaks which are also really great, especially when it deals with intensive animation XDDD. If you have a little bit of time to kill, I’d say try this one out!
