Large Bagel is a webcomic and fanime by Nyan-chan.

Both stories follow Pinisu-chan, a human sized anthropomorphic bagel, and her human friends as they protect the world from a vaguely defined threat using their vaguely defined magical girl abilities. Along the way, they tackle with everyday issues that teenagers face in their home country of Glorious Nippon.

Similar to Nyan~ Neko Sugar Girls, only a bit more coherent, better drawn, and more self aware.

The webcomic can be found here while episodes of the fanime can be found here.


Tropes which Large Bagel provides an example of:

  • Animation Bump: The art goes from being MS Paint doodles in the webcomic to cleanly animated flash doodles. Also happens in the show with the opening being traditionally animated and the rest being in Flash.
  • Animesque: The comic is also read from right-to-left.
  • Anime Theme Song: Sakura Saori's "Kiss My Lips" for the opening and Miku Hatsune's "Puzzle" for the ending.
  • Art Evolution: The comic's art starts getting more coherent and cleaner as it progresses.
  • Art Shift: Scenes will occasionally shift from Flash animation to slideshow version of panels from the webcomic in the show.
  • Beach Episode: The beginning of chapter 2.
  • Berserk Button: Don't call Pinisu-chan a doughnut.
  • Bilingual Bonus: A lot of the characters' names are things no sane person in any country would want to name their kids. "Manko" = "Cunt", "Pai Pai" = "Boobs", "Onani" = "Masturbate", "Oshikko" = "to pee". Pinisu is an Engrishization of "penis".
  • Can't Have Sex, Ever: Pinisu-chan because the Crystal of Pure Kawaiiness can be reached by her "ecchi secret spot" and having sex would destroy the crystal.
  • CPR (Clean, Pretty, Reliable): Fumi-sensei restores Pinisu-chan by a kiss. Even though she's bleeding because she was hit in the head by a brick.
  • Godwin's Law: In chapter 1, page 2, Pinisu-chan calls her teacher a Nazi.
  • Gonk:
    • Used both in the comic and fanime to exaggerate emotion. Example here and here. The opening theme also has some pretty good images.
    • Neko Tomodachi could be considered either this, or Ugly Cute.
    • And of course, the anthropomorphic bagel with breasts.
  • High-Pressure Blood: The first monster of the comic is split in half and a fountain of what looks like blood comes out. It may be another dark liquid.
  • Info Dump: Near the end of Chapter 1 and Episode 1 that explains where Pinisu-chan comes from and her powers.
  • Jizzed in My Pants: Happens to Pinisu-chan in chapter 1, page 18 while looking at Fumi-sensei.
  • Kaleidoscope Eyes: Manko-chan's eyes supposedly turn red when she's angry. They also change colors (including a rainbow gradient at one point) from scene to scene in the show.
  • Stylistic Suck: The writing. The art of the comic as it is scratchy.
  • Third-Person Person:
    • Manko-chan speaks like this.
    • They all seem to, although not consistently.
  • Too Dumb to Live: One of the girls at the beach find a brick underwater. Someone suggests to play catch with it. She throws the brick. Pinisu-chan tries to catch it.
