Japanoschlampen (ger. for Japano-Sluts) is an Web Series created by German You-Tuber coldmirror. It serves as a Affectionate Parody of Animes, though later episodes have parodied other media or focused on the life of the characters instead.

Japanoschlampen follows Wake, an eccentric manic grade A student, and her not-boyfriend Chao, as they go on adventures, into school, or on what they are doing in their spare time.


The series ran over 3 seasons, with 33 episodes in total, and 3 movies, which parody H.P. Lovecraft's works. Also there are additional mini-episodes, which focus on established things in the world, like a show about animals or advertisements for fictional games. It was put on hiatus in March 2016, as coldmirror chose to focus on her new series Star Star Space instead.

Japanoschlampen provides examples of the following tropes:

  • Academic Alpha Bitch: Wake is very condescending, selfish, a jerk and the Grade A Student at her school. She also uses the nerdy Midori and Robasaan as her project mates, but doesn't want to hang out with them once the project is finished.
  • Adaptational Heroism: The Witch from Hansel and Gretel is rightfully pissed off at Wake and Chao for destroying her property, by eating all the candy. Doubles as Adaptational Badass as she is a muscle-bound bodybuilder in this.

  • Adaptational Villainy: Here David Hasselhoff is an Eldritch Abomination seeking to control mankind and rule over the Earth.
  • Affectionate Parody: Of Animes, Disney-Movies, Video Games etc.
  • Art Evolution: In the pre-Star Star Space era, many of the characters had stick-like arms. They have actual arms starting with the "Crossover".
  • Ascended Extra: Ass was just another classmate of Wake and Chao, but he has proven himself to be popular enough to become the series Tritagonist.
  • Ambiguous Disorder: The titular characters have this:
    • Wake has a general lack of remorse, occasionally killing people for the pettiest reasons, a constant need to be THE BEST!!! and maybe some OCD tendencies.
    • Chao seems to suffer from permanent depression over his parents' death.
  • Animesque
  • The Bad Guy Wins: Wake just hands the puppies over to Belle ze Boob in Episode 25, not realising her not-so-subtle sinister motives.

  • The Bus Came Back: Xiao in Episode 5 and 18 as a major character,in Episode 7 as a Cameo and in Episode 33 as his more saner Alternative Counterpart.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Wake becomes this in Episode 13, when Kai joins the class and becomes Chao's girlfriend. This does not end well for her.
  • Continuity Nod: Although the series is not continuity-driven, there are few times where continuity is acknowledged:
    • In Episodde 4, Wake wins a volleyball match against the Futsi Sisters. In the first movie she still has the trophy.
    • In Episode 10, Wake finds an injured cat and takes him to the hospital; later episodes still show Wake having Pushi.
    • Similarly, Chao adopts Miss Killerknutsch in Episode 25, and still has her in later episodes.
  • Crossover: Sort-of with Star Star Space in Episode 34 (23 in Star Star Space's order), where it's established that the aformentioned series is a Show Within a Show in the universe of Japanoschlampen.
  • Cute But Psycho: Wake.
  • Disappeared Dad: Wake's father was never mentioned, until the second movie establishes that he died shortly after Wake's birth due to diabetes.
  • Early Installment Weirdness: The first episodes each parodied one anime series, Chao and Wake spend most of thier time in some empty field, since the urban setting where they lived wasn't established also Ass wasn't a main character yet.
  • Easily Forgiven: Wake finds out that Mototsu is a member of a cult and breaks up with him because he didn't tell her. Yet in Episode 28 she becomes flustered at the sight of him as always.
  • Expy: Master Futsi looks very similar to Muten Roshi from Dragon Ball.
    • Ass deliberately invokes this trope, being a fanboy of Pokemon.
    • The Card Player from Episode 21 looks like the protagonist from YuGiOh.
    • Belle ze Boob from Episode 25 is a parody of Cruella de Vil.
  • I Was Quite a Looker: The volleyball card of Master Futsi in Episode 4 shows that he used to look better; that must be where his daughters got it from.
  • Gamer Chick: Wake: she has a preference for shooters.
  • Genre Shift: Started as a straightup episodic parody of Animes, then turned into a Slice of Life comedy series focusing more on the lives of the characters.
  • German Humor
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: Averted, the second movie establishes said musician as an Eldritch Abomination.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: Wake is revealed in the second movie to be 1/8 part Fishhead People from her father's side. Must be where she gets her powers from.
  • Hidden Depths:
    • Midori, the class's stereotypical nerd, apparently plays the guitar and wants to be a rock star.
    • Frau Lehrerin, as revealed in the first movie, might be a follower of David Hasselhoff (who is an Eldritch Abomination in this webseries). Also in the crossover episode, she is the actress who portrays Captian Captenne Capitanöse.
  • Killed Off for Real: Kai is killed by Wake in Episode 14.
  • Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: Wake to Chao.
  • Missing Episode: In-Universe there is one of Star Star Space. But we don't find out what it entails.
  • Missing Mom: The Futsi sisters live with their father Master Futsi, but no mention has been made of their mother.
  • Narrator All Along: Played for Laughs in the outro of Episode 10 with Pushi, the cat that Wake adopts. Due to coldmirror using the same voice for both of them.
  • No Respect Guy: Chao, it's a Running Gag.
  • Nice, Mean, and In-Between: Ass (the nice one), Wake (the mean one) and Chao (in-between).
  • Only Sane Man: Chao, but no one will listen to him.
  • Pink Girl, Blue Boy: Wake is pink-haired and Chao blue-haired.
  • Put on a Bus: While this tends to happen to Xiao, he hasn't been seen since Episode 18, where he hooks up with Kai's sister. His counterpart in the Alternate Universe from Episode 33 does show up.
  • Those Two Guys: Midori and Robasaan are mostly seen together.
  • Two Guys and a Girl: Not at first, but Wake with Chao and Ass.
  • Two Girls to a Team: Inverted, with the school class, Chao and Ass are the only boys in the class.
  • Unexplained Recovery: Frau Lehrerin is killed in the first movie, but every episode and the following movie after that she is shown to be very much alive.
  • Unholy Matrimony: Xiao and Kai's sister Rei form a relationship in Episode 18.
  • Yandere: Wake becomes this following Kai's introduction.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Given that this is an parody of animes, this was expected. Specific examples include:
    • Wake has pink hair: she got it from her dad.
    • Chao has blue hair, with violet stripes.
    • Wake's Okaasan has purple hair.
    • Kai and her sister Rei Ichikawa have turquoise hair.
