Hiroshi Odokawa is a middle-aged taxi driver living in Tokyo. He’s also a walrus.
There are many animated works that swap out humans for animal avatars, but few are as charmingly pedestrian as “Odd Taxi,” a 13-episode anime series that aired in 2021. Odokawa and his pals may look like walruses, cats and monkeys, but there’s no swinging from the trees going on here. These animals lead normal Tokyo lives, shuffling between work, the sauna and the local watering hole while searching for love, money or fame.
