Binchou-tan: First episode review.

This contains "plot" spoilers, so beware.

Binchou-tan is a tiny girl living in an old house in the mountains. One day, she wakes up, starts meal preparations, goes out to get more ingredients, goes home, fixes her meal, eats it, and goes to sleep. The end.

I should point out that this is a 12-minute episode, but the pace was so slow, that it felt like a full 25-minute episode.

I should also point out that "Binchou-tan" is cute and does everything with gratuitous cuteness, and rides on a duck's back on the way to go get her ingredients.

The pace makes "Kokoro Library" look like... "Hellsing"? Naw, the difference is not that extreme. How about "To Heart"? :) I found the pace and the soft music very relaxing, and it might do the work of a dose of melatonin to help you get to sleep.

I will be watching more of this series. *yaaaawn*
