Yuki vs. Panda is an original animated series intended for adult audience, that explodes onto the screen as an outrageous East-meets-West action comedy.
Ostensibly, the season one arc is about a college student training to win her school Olympics -and the heart of a new boy in town- while a giant panda bear seeks revenge against her for biting off his ear over spilled ice cream.
But the true story unravels a mysterious secret force that binds the universe together, and the malevolent evil that threatens to tear it all apart.
Yuki vs. Panda reinvents the school anime form, using a film noir revenge plot that turns all standard tropes upside down. The ridiculous premise of a girl biting off a panda’s ear over ice cream sets up an outrageous story universe where anything is possible. While satirizing modern existence through a variety of characters and their personal storylines, the main arc of the series is structured around a cerebral, introspective and vengeful panda bear.
This Saved by the Bell version of Road to Perdition grows from seemingly random events into an epic multi-layered tale of good vs evil.
We hope you love it!
