It's funny actually, I don't even recall her doing it. Was it shown? I'm pretty sure I haven't missed any episodes, so either my memory really sucks (it does, I know it heh) or I missed an episode (doubt it) or it wasn't shown (possible I guess).

Actually I think it was around the time that Doremi weren't releasing much and there had been quite a lengthy break (between ep6 and 7 IIRC), so that's likely why I've forgotten.

It was the episodes with the "little sister contest" that turned into a duel between Chocho and Sahara ... pretty strong pair of episodes.

Just a news update ... according to the appropriate sources, the last episode should be available "soon" --- which I'm going to take as meaning they're in the latter half of preparation at least.

I've been listening to the OST tracks quite a bit .... I'm bracing for an ending that might be pretty bittersweet just based on some of the music I've not heard in the series yet.

It was part of a ritual Kuguru performed that was intended to formally disassociate herself from her kappa clan and family. Same idea as a real-world samurai or court official who would shave their head and become a Buddhist monk in order to remove themselves from a conflict or situation they could not resolve or wished to avoid. Essentially, once the ritual was complete the persona of Sahara Kuguru would cease to exist as far as the clan is concerned. IMO, it was quite a smart move on Kuguru's part. Chochomaru had been claiming that she wanted to kill her older sister in order to secure her own position as head of the Sahara family enterprises. But once Kuguru has "ceased to exist" in the eyes of the clan, Chochomaru can no longer use that as an excuse and will be forced to be honest with herself and confront the real reasons for her hostility toward her sister. And it appears that the plan worked as intended.

@Vexx - BTW, I noticed that you thought highly of this series and figured that I ought to take a look myself. Very nice indeed - Thanks!

aye, the animation is somewhat minimal and its a bit screwy in some parts (especially the theme park derail) but the heart of the show is in a very good place.

I'm both anticipating and dreading the final episode.

Well the final episode salvaged it somewhat, and brought it back to what this anime was originally about. Enjoy the ending to this short sweet series.

You're just torturing us you know, Maceart ---- edit: evil .. most evil (I'm going to be out most of the day and won't get to actually watch it til late tonight or tomorrow morning).

Hi, Furudanuki .... yeah, I should have explicitly pointed this one out to you since we have some similarities in taste. It'd be nice to see an R1 release of this one, course I'm still waiting for Lamune, REC, and others we'll probably never see in R1 land.

You're welcome. Yeah, something's wrong with our forums, but that's alright. Spread the love for Petopeto-san! It's really a good anime! Don't be scared away by YUG's rori designs...

The Little Sister Heaven (Imo-ten) kinda trainwrecked this series' plot however...

i like when petoko walks around, puki puki!


awww it was a nice ending. the lights were pretty. too bad for sahara ;-;
everyone should have shared their memories though, it would have made more of an impact i think, especially with sahara.

Hmmm, I thought the ending was a bit of a soft-landing. I'd have gone for the hug anyway instead of holding back.

Yeah... I would have liked to seen some of Sahara's memories - it would have added to the impact of her choice. I thought the little bugs were feasting on the unhappy feelings or memories all 3 of them were experiencing.

remark on the petoko-shingo-sahara triangle:
Spoiler:


Love the music from this show... I play it way too often. And yeah.. I figure we lost almost two episodes of character development or triangle fun to the Imoten park derail.... damn it, what *is* it with their inability to key in on their own strong points in writing?

Thanks to the people who shared the show with us ---- I'll buy it if it gets licensed here: hear that, Unnamed Distributing Company? ... I would *never* have considered buying this series if I hadn't gotten to preview it first. So... nyah.

aye.... "loveable" is a good description. The heart of this show was just in a good place.

The ending was nice, Shingo was so sweet and Petoko was so cute.
I think they didnt hug because petoko indicated that she would get stuck to him if they do so, because she is feeling love love toward him.

I just started on this series. Pretty good. I'm up to episode 6, I hope Sahara doesn't stay short hair for the rest of the series. She is so pretty with long hair.

Her species is going extinct (the ero class).... so she's a rarity. The doctors wanted to examine her but I don't get the "bad memory" scene with the surgical tools at all.... I'll have to rewatch key sequences and listen closer to the japanese and see what I can catch.

It may have been as simple as a small child's misrecollection of an event... but...

At a guess I would say that it's detailed in the novel the series was based on and the anime producers assumed that if we are watching the anime we would have read the novel/manga already and know about the event along with a lot more background.

But I was also puzzled by the "bad memories" since it seemed out of context.

Over that scene with the doctors, she seems to say that a specialist cconfirmed that her race will die out. I don't think it's so much a bad memory of the examination, as that the exam confirmed she is a petopeto-san and that they will die out. Elsewhere, it shows that they fade out and disappear. I think that's what's so upsetting.
