This is an anime about a gyaru who wakes up one morning to discover that she got drunk the night before and came home with a dinosaur that looks like a muppet. I ain’t gonna lie, I was kinda just expecting this to be a cute but unimpressive little gag series that I’d watch once and then immediately forget.
Then the op swung a bat at my head.
Gal and Dino is a mixed media anime about a gyaru living with a dinosaur that looks like a muppet, with the first episode presented in short skits mixed between 2D flash animation, stop motion, and an extended live action segment where the dinosaur is a bad mascot costume and Kaede (the gyaru) is replaced with a middle aged man using the same dialogue as the original scene almost completely verbatim. This series probably won’t grab you if you aren’t into weird little widget series, but if you’re looking for something with the same general presentation (if not tone or sense of humor) as Pop Team Epic, you might get more out of this one. Personally, I think it’s fun. Is it kind of stupid? Absolutely! But I have joy in my heart.
