Synopsis: A 5 minute anime takes the time to summarize various mental afflictions in bite size and easy to understand explanation.
Pros: Like most 5 minute anime, the show’s biggest strength is that you can view the entire thing in less than an hour. I think this one took about 45 minutes. The show’s gimmick is that is teaches about metal illnesses and conditions in a comical manner. It’s all mostly Psych 101 stuff, like basic anxiety, stalking, sleep disorders, and erectile dysfunction. Oh, that’s the other thing. The show main punch line is innuendo. So a lot of the topics have a sexual bent, like fetishism and exhibitionism. The show also manages to give seemingly mild disorders a sexual bent. Freud would be proud.
Cons: The shows are only about 5 minutes and the gimmick is largely one note. Someone comes in with a disorder, the doctor tries to explain, the nurse or nurses make a sex joke, and scene. The show does give a straightforward explanation for most of the condition it discusses, but don’t expect this be a substitute for good ol’ fashion flashcards.
