The "Otherworld" is a vast and dangerous realm hidden from the knowledge of the common folk. It is also home to many creatures that threaten any human who dare visit it. To witness its desolate yet oddly absorbing environment, one must search for portals that could reside anywhere, from secret elevators to shrine entrances.

After a fateful encounter with a horrendous Otherworld denizen, Sorawo Kamikoshi ponders whether to keep going or give up in life. Meanwhile, Toriko Nishina scours the Otherworld in hopes of finding her friend Satsuki, who she believes is lost somewhere within the realm.

When the two cross paths, friendship blossoms. In order to acquire as much information about this obscure dimension, the two travel back and forth from the real world to the other. Sorawo and Toriko's bodies are soon influenced by the Otherworld, preparing them for the many horrors to come as both of them try to fulfill their goals.

This was probably the best fantastical show I have ever seen. It's worth noting that I have not watched a ton, but of all the ones I have seen, this is the best.

The portrayal of all of the weird things there are is done so well. The visuals are great but a big round of applause for who scored the music to go along with it. It set the perfect mood for each ...

The whole time I was watching this series, one thought kept rattling through my head, "I really miss Manglobe." The rich atmosphere and meticulous design that Manglobe brought to Ergo Proxy and Witch Hunter Robin would have been a perfect match for Otherside Picnic, but sadly that studio doesn't exist any more.

While I haven't read the source material, the Otherside Picnic anime feels like a competent adaptation. The problem is that some stories demand something other than off-the-peg anime aesthetics. I'm aware that the novels and manga used the same character designs, but they just don't fit the story. The animators do manage to pull ...

Every now and then, I'm okay trying something a little different and weirder than what I'm used to watching. Otherside Picnic... should not have been the one to try.

Story: Our story in Otherside Picnic starts out with us seeing Sorawo in the middle of nowhere when another character, Toriko, finds her. They escape seemingly dangerous situations and return home with some supernatural items over the course of the first few episodes that they want to sell off for cash. Soon after, we learn that Sorawo stumbled upon this place by chance where as Toriko is looking for a friend of hers, Satsuki. ...
