Hacka Doll #1 Knows What People Like ★

The Hacka Doll app delivers a customized feed of news for each user depending on what they look at and choices they make on questions. The Anime personifies the app’s customization engine as three “Hacka Dolls” — the personal entertainment AI and main navigator Hacka Doll #1, the anime expert Hacka Doll #2, and the knowledgeable otaku Hacka Doll #3. They wish to help people “advance”.




★ We Must Run ★
  • Fun, lovable, and spunky characters.
  • It’s mostly enjoyable and fun.
  • Characters seem cliche at first but actually have some personality behind them.
  • The girls do some cute and eccentric things.
  • We move a tiny bit forward in each episode. 
  • Humor is a bit odd ball. (For Example: Hacka Dolls heads turn into a sword, Vulgar at times, Number #3 lost it’s “thing”).
  • Miss Monochrome cameo! 

Directing, Animation & Character Designs

★ Hacka Doll Sword (Plus 6 Strength) ★
  • Really gets the crazy and wild moments. 
  • Colorful and bright characters. 
  • Colorful and bright environment. 
  • Animation is never a bother or problem. 

★ Hacka Doll Scream ★



★ Hacka Drill ★
  • The writing is just so-so. Nothing special happens. 
  • Joke’s don’t always hit you. 
  • Event outcomes are usually pretty predictable or kinda weird on purpose.
  • Not much to take in from each episode. 
  • Some episodes felt empty. 
  • Lacked a satisfying ending.
  • Just a typical “Yay, man” ending. 


★ 7.7/10 ★ I honestly truly do like.

Final Comments: This Anime is fun, quirky, crazy, and predictable. It offer’s some originality when it comes to some things they do. But that doesn’t mean everything or every joke will hit you. What will are these fun and colorful Hacka Dolls. This show is nothing so special. But it is entertaining. You can dodge or watch this show. I’m glad I watched it, that’s another Anime experience checked off! We didn’t advance during this show but we did have fun! -Richard K. Moe
