Web Animation / Tsuki Desu

Go To
Yukari, Tsuki, and Cheetos

Long ago in ancient times, there were cool forces that raged explosive ninja battles for the throne. But there was one group that decided to rise up, and enter victory for which the other groups could not partake! It was a beautiful display of power and beauty and strength. However, another group decided to stand up to this apocalyptic world with elegant samurai! And thus, today's world was born. But that isn't what this story is about. This story is about a girl in modern-day Tokyo night.
Opening Narration from the first episode

Tsuki Desu is a YouTube and Nico Nico hosted Fanime series by Anthony W.H., started in the Spring of 2012. Najika Tsuki attends the night school Sugoi Gakuen Academy School in modern-day Tokyo, living a seemingly normal life (albeit with no friends). She pines after Student Council President, Yukari Bueno, spends her free time with cats, and laments that she definitely has no friends. But that all changes when New Transfer Student Chitose Miyamoto shows up one day, and he seems to want to be Najika's friend....!

This is the second series released by master fanime creator Anthony, who already released a fanime of similar QUALITY, known as Quest Of Laizen.

Current episodes you can watch on the creator's channel, or on English Nico Nico for commenting enjoyment.


Tropes that ''Tsuki Desu" provides an example of:

  • Bilingual Bonus: Najika works for one episode at Hazukashi Diner. Hazukashi means I'm embarassed.
  • Bi the Way: Sakura definitely crushes on Kurokana Kobo at first, and later feels something far stronger for Najika.
  • Bittersweet Ending
  • Canon Welding: The last few episodes heavily imply Quest Of Laizen took place in this verse's past.
  • Captain Ersatz:
    • Anyone who is familiar with the *ahem* popular fanime Yin Yang will see quite a few similarities between the two.
    • Episode 5 gives us Bunny and Kitten, who are unmistakable copies of Jessie and James from Pokémon
  • Cerebus Syndrome: The plot becomes far more intense after Najika goes back in time. Made all the more obvious because the Eye Catches that referenced previous fanime vanish right around then.
  • Corpsing: Listen to the way Najika says SUH-KER-UHH's name in the Christmas special. You can tell she's trying not to laugh.
  • A Death In The Lime Light: Sakura performs a Heroic Sacrifice near the end of the episode. Subverted when she shows up in The Stinger of the final episode.
  • Department of Redundancy Department: Count how many times "Tsuki Desu" is mentioned in the first episode, or how many times Najika muses on her lack of friends.
  • Deuteragonist: Yukari, with Chitose as the Tritagonist. The same applies to their ancestors in Feudal Japan after they replace them in story role, with King Yukari playing Supporting Leader with Cheetos as his Knight in Shining Armor Number Two.
