Potemayo 01

I just final­ly got around to watch­ing Potemayo and I’m left won­der­ing… What in the world is that thing?

Okay, this series is based of a yonka­ma about a mys­te­ri­ous crea­ture, who a boy named Sunao Moriya­ma finds and names “Potemayo” (after a snack that he ate). Potemayo soon fol­lows him every­where and she starts to get pop­u­lar with his class­mates. Anoth­er strange crea­ture with a scythe, which one of Moriya­ma’s class­mate names “Guchuko”, appears and more weird­ness ensues.

Appar­ent­ly Potemayo is very pro­tec­tive of Moriya­ma and pro­claims that he is hers in her strange, strange lan­guage — even going as far as attack­ing a girl named Mikan Nat­su, who has a crush on Moriya­ma. She has like some sort of bat-like sonar that detects when­ev­er Mikan talks about Moriya­ma with a “doki doki”-ish tone.

Strange­ly, I thought of Kazu­mi from Shaku­gan no Shana when I saw and looked at Mikan. Maybe because she has the same voice actress? Or is it because of the hair?

A what­ev­er-ever-it-is vio­lent­ly cut­ting stuff up and tap­ing them back togeth­er with mask­ing tape? Imag­ine real vil­lains mak­ing a dra­mat­ic entrance and then doing that. Strange, yet amus­ing.

And it can shoot laser beams?! Seri­ous­ly, WHAT ARE THESE THINGS?! ^^;;

We also get a very nice scene of a chick­en tak­ing a lit­tle poop. With sound-effects too. Is that not amaz­ing?

This show seems to be sur­pris­ing­ly cute and fun­ny! And at the same time: equal­ly strange. It’s total­ly ran­dom at times like that dead pig appear­ing in the class­room. (; All in all, good show. Not laugh-induc­ing, but it did give me a smirk or two (I mean, Potemayo wet the bed while Moriya­ma was sleep­ing. Pret­ty fun­ny stuff.).

  1. Nice overview; I haven’t watched any of Potemayo yet, but based on what you said, I might just have to check it out. Seems like it could be good for a few laughs.
