Null & Peta
Review by: John Fragglepuss Evans
Genre: Sci-Fi, Comedy, Robotic Frankenstein
First Aired: Fall 2019, 12 short-form episodes
Summary: Null is an inventor that has a sister named Peta. Peta dies in an accident and Null can’t stand losing her sister, so she makes “Peta Robo”, a robot with all the characteristics of her sister. Even though Null plans out everything, the new robot displays several personality differences than whaat her calculations intended.
Null & Peta is a simple anime with a complicated premise. It sounds confusing, but it is basically a show about a girl and her sister, which happens to be a robot. See, simple right? Each episode follows the sisters through their daily adventures. One day Peta is attempting to make breakfast, while another day has the two blasting off into space! This series is not anything groundbreaking and won’t be winning awards, but it is a cute anime with two loving characters that you can finish in less than an hour. To top it off, the opening is a lot of fun and has a lot of game parodies.
You might enjoy this if: You want a quick series to bust through between two other anime.
You might not like it if: You are not captivated after the first episode. If you have five minutes to spare, watch episode one. If you are not interested after that, you can start watching something else.
