A young girl named Null has the desire to revive her deceased older sister into a robot. However, things look different than she realizes besides how her older sister behaves.
I have to admit that while the episodes are short, the story is funny. Sure, Peta cares about Null a bit too much that Null becomes annoyed at her. This is apparent with Peta’s cooking that is significantly worse than Miyako’s for comedic reasons. In the finale, she cooks normal food before going back to that horrible fried rice and usual antics we know and love.
Still, I find it funny how she forces it down her throat. It doesn’t end there with the various antics of forcing Null to attend school or bringing her gym uniform. Sure, Null might find this as annoying, but deep inside, she cares a lot about her old sister.
What I find interesting is the subtle realization that the world Null and Peta is in is not real. Sure, it resembles real life, but it’s amazing how they convey this with people disappearing out of nowhere. This becomes more apparent when everyone vanishes except for those bugs devouring everything.
Even after defeating them, Null eventually finds out for herself the world isn’t real, besides remembering the truck crash. The flowers she saw near a traffic signal pole made her realize that she was the victim, not Peta. It’s kind of interesting that Null faced a very similar fate as Kurihara Misato. While Null is in a virtual world instead a full-blown imaginary world and still alive, but in a coma, besides age, they share some similarities, including the same voice actress.
Overall, Null and Peta is surprisingly enjoyable comedy short. The animation and presentation are good along with the characters that you can finish in about an hour. While this is based on a video game that is releasing soon, it’s highly advisable to watch the show first since the game has spoilers. ¶
