At a Glance: Jungle wa Itsumo Hale Nochi Guu

Updated on December 5, 2016

Jungle wa Itsumo Hale nochi Guu is a wacky, surreal comedy centering around little boy Hale, his mother, and the cute but weird little girl they take in, Guu. Guu is a Big Eater, and her monstrous appetite freaks Hale out. It's implied that his mother had a rough life in a nearby city before moving to this small village in the jungle, which is viewed as a kind of idyllic paradise.

What throws a wrench into the works for this "ideal rural life" dream is Guu. She doesn't have parents, seems totally alien to the villagers in many ways, and doesn't even entirely seem human. She freaks Hale out and he just wants his old life back, but hopefully he will grow to accept Guu through the course of the show.

Review

I laughed a lot in this. I'm a fan of the surreal, and acid-trip fantasy animation. One bad thing is that the main character seems sort of like a cosmic plaything, sort of like in Hayate the Combat Butler. But like Hayate, he's a good kid, and you wish the best for him.

It's whimsical, goofy, creative, and fun; essentially, it's everything you want in a comedic anime. I base these "At a Glance" reviews from the first five episodes and sometimes my judgment suffers from not seeing the complete picture. But I don't think an anime that starts of this wild and creative gets stale at any point. It definitely made me want to come back for more.

Rating for Jungle wa Itsumo Hale Nochi Guu: 8/10
