Having watched the first two episodes, I think that you'll find a much stronger AD vibe from this than from Lucky Star. Whether that's good or bad is up to you.

Personally, I enjoy LS, but I've really loved what I've seen of this so far...

...I thought Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei was weird, but this wins the award in oddity, enough that it may be just a tad too strange for my taste. I'll probably watch another episode or two, but I don't know if the cuteness alone can be enough for me to add it to my already too large viewing schedule. Although if I do continue watching it, I demand lots of Guchuko. She is adorably deadly.

What the heck did I just watch...


I think there was some blobs vaguely designed like little girls and uhhh...laser beams...


Well other then the fact that its utterly incoherent I was actually amused most of the 1st episode I watched. The title character...ummm...thing didnt do a huge lot for me, but guchuko is too adorable for words. I mean who couldnt love a scythe wielding, laser shooting, tape dispensing lil' chibi.


*edit*

One last thing of note...What in the world is up with the male uniform designs? I'd have to transfer if I was subjected to that during my younger years...Schools rough enough as-is without being made to look like a sissy.

Right.

Well I've just timed and watched this and my thoughts:

Wtf?

Weird.

Really weird.

That orange haired girl is strange, I did laugh though.

You know, it's hard to watch this and not come away with the notion that the Japanese are a very, very interesting people...

So - just WTF are those cat-baby-potato-girl thingies anyway?

Title: Potemayo
Japanese Title: ぽてまよ
Genre: Comedy
Premiere: 2007
Animation Studio: J.C. Staff
Original Creator: Haruka Ogataya
Director: Shinichiro Kimura
Official Website: http://www.potemayo.com/

This anime is based on a manga of the same name.

Hmm, I haven’t managed to find a summary for this one, but it seems to involve normal schoolgirls who meet up with two strange chibi-witches/mahou shoujo. Some of the people who worked on Venus Versus Virus are also involved in this one, and I’m suspecting that this will be another one of those cute slice-of-life series.

Cast:

Kana Hanazawa as Potemayo
Ayako Kawasumi as Mikan Natsu
Ayumi Tsuji as Guchuko
Eri Kitamura as Sunao Moriyama
Hikaru Tokita as Mudo Kirihara
Nobuhiko Okamoto as Yasumi Natsu
Rie Kugimiya as Nene Kasugano
Takayuki Kondou as Kaoru Hatsushiba
Yuko Kaida as Kyo Takamimori
Why did nobody tell me Rie Kugimiya was in this show, though judging by the fact it's Loli Staff I should have guessed....well I was waffling before and was probably going to give this a try, but now it's a definite.

Edit: Well I saw it, I don't know what it is, I don't know what happened, I don't know what the deal is with Potemayo other than that she is chasing everything around in a murderous rage, I can't understand a single word Nene is saying (typical of Rie Kugimiya) and I don't know what is up with Wing Deathscythe Gundam there and the pig, but I loved this episode. Nothing happened and yet I had a grin on my face the whole time and even laughed out loud, which is extremely rare. It reminds me a bit of the early Lucky Star episodes and I hope it stays that way.

Possibly because she somehow managed to make her voice painfully PAINFULLY irritating. I also have no damn clue what she's saying half the time. Was she sucking helium for the role or something?

Actually there's a fairly good chance that she was.

Yea after 2 episodes ive basically tunned her voice out...I think it because of a self defense mechanism against having my eardrums pierced.

Second episode was ok, but it really needed more Guchuko lol.

It is kindof comical to see the girl lust after the guy for once though, although I think shes gone beyond obsessive at this point heh.

The third episode was the best yet in my opinion. I laughed at a lot more moments than I did in the other two. This is turning out to be an excellent show.

And yeah, I would swear that girl is on helium or something. Nobody's voice is naturally that high. I hope.

True, but for the record: I like this show. After it already had been on my "most likely crap" list. I don't know why this is compared to Pugyuru, I found the humor in Pugyuru completely impenetrable. This one is easy to understand I think, even if it's not everybody's kind of thing.

Nice animated Potemayo avatars Aroduc! If it's not too much trouble, can someone make a cute animated Guchuko avatar? 80x80 and no more than 19.5k please.

I am a sucker for Christmas episodes in anime, so, I really enjoyed episode 3.

Spoiler for episode 3:


As far as Nene, I am dying to find out more about her! Call me weird but I don't find her voice that irritating like most of you (ok, it's not attractive, either ). I can understand her pretty good and the words she uses are little on the rude side (ex. dialog from episode 3: "Sonna koto kiitenaiyo bakaero - I never heard that before dumbass"). It makes me wonder why she is so aggressive! There has to be a reason. It's a trap!!

Nene often calls Kyo bakainu so yes, she's on the darker side, I guess .
