Anime-Gataris (アニメガタリズ, lit. Anime-chat) is a Japanese short animation that served as intermission for Toho Cinemas’ animated films at Shinjuku from 2015 to 2016. The anime follows the rapid-fire chit-chat of “charming characters” at an anime club in a Tokyo University. An anime television series based on the short and titled Anime-Gataris premiered on October 8, 2017.
The anime centers on Minoa Asagaya, a new high school student in Sakaneko Private High School. Despite being a novice to anime, Minoa’s classmate Arisu Kamiigusa invites her to make an “anime research club” at school. Through conversations with her classmate Miko Kouenji, as well as various anime-loving upperclassmen, Minoa gradually gets hooked on anime. While they stand against the student council’s continuous efforts to disband their club, and they ignore the impending end of the world, they talk about anime, whether in Akiba, or in real-life “sacred place” anime settings, or the hot springs.
