The Peeping Life CG anime franchise has more than 200 episodes, and it has sold more than 600,000 DVDs. CoMix Wave Films and BROSTA TV premiered the comedy series on the BS Asahi Premium television network in December 2008, and started streaming the series online in the same month.
The "slow-life anime" is part of the datsuryoku-kei (ennui-style) genre of comedy that depicts the listless minutiae of everyday life. The original anime combined motion-captured improvised acting with computer animation into a series of comedy shorts.
