Due to an unfortunate accident, his life came to an early end but the story has just begun as he is revived in the body of a dachshund thus begins the “tale with a tail”. Harumi is now not only a mongrel with no place to go but the only one who can hear his thoughts is a sadistic woman known as Natsuno Kirihime, but little his knowledge not only is she a writer but is also his favorite author.

Review

This anime was entertaining as it had really good humor with a colorful cast of characters. Unfortunately since the characters follow the typical anime tropes, they are far from memorable. but there are a few gems and details that makes it enough for them to stand out from the rest. The anime is a roller coaster of bizarre plots with a great color palette and well done backgrounds. Unfortunately the anime it self lacks much character development due to the overwhelming introduction of characters as if this were a harem but is actually far from it. The story really revolves around the two main characters and their chemistry with one another that at times it gets a bit stale.

This anime chases its’ tail and gets 3 and a half Dashes of Battle out of 5.

3/5
