Tesagure! Bukatsu-mono. An anime associated with MikuMikuDance.


How many animes have been made with MikuMikuDance? MMD and making anime? Are thereA Feature Article by contributor ARIZONA on LearnMMD.com any animes made using MikuMikuDance. Is Tesagure! Bukatsu-mono really made using MMD?

Tesagure! Bukatsu-mono is an anime with MMD associations.

I’m a long time anime fan and have been MMD-ing for just over two years. So I’m really pleased to find out that this fall anime season there is an MMD related anime called Tesagure! Bukatsu-mono. The only reason I found out was one of the members of the anime group I belong to had mentioned it to me.

The girls of Tesagure! Bukatsu-mono ... visit their website for MMD models!Tesagure! Bukatsu-mono is a slice-of-life comedy that parodies anime and manga in general. There are four main characters: Aoi, Koharu, Yui and Hina,. They are the four members of an unofficial school club called the Groping Club-NOT what you are thinking. They are groping for a reason to exist as a club (Actually the group is called the Temporary Everyday Activities Club. I watched a rather bad translation when I had written this article).

So, if you are looking for mechas, vampires, zombies, magical girls, rom/coms or any other jejune anime classification; then you wouldn’t want to watch this one. If your taste runs more toward Joshinraku and Sayonara, Zetsubou-Sensei then you might want to give Tesagure! Bukatsu-mono a chance. Bitmapchao’s YouTube channel has a translation of the opening: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P2NHwqqaGpU . I can’t comment with any authority on the accuracy of the translation it’s still funny though.

A Model show.

MikuMikuDance has been used for other animes. Most notable are Gdgd Fairies (pronounced Goody Goody Fairies) and a lesser known work Straight Title Robot Anime. It seems that Japanese television sees the value of MikuMikuDance as a viable (and cheap) means of animation. Tesagure! Bukatsu-mono is MMD’s first foray into somewhat realistic character design.

As part of Tesagure! Bukatsu-mono’s marketing strategy, Nippon Television Network Corporation has made available MMD models of  the four main characters. The site is here: http://www.ntv.co.jp/tesabu/mmd/. Please click and read the terms of agreement. I have uploaded a video featuring these four young ladies http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z17IiyudK8o&feature=youtu.be
