Kotaro was pretty much supposed to be your average boy, worried about the pressures of education while enjoying a simple life with his friends. Much to his despair, he one day finds the overly cheerful Misha at his door, asking to be friends out of nowhere. Even more shocking is that Misha is an apprentice angel, yet she does more bad then good. Along with Kotaro's school friends Takashi and Koboshi and the so called devil Shia (once again being able to do more good then bad), the group of friends spend their days getting into all sorts of adventures and troubles. Based on the manga by Koge-Donbo.

I didn't very much care for this show but from an analytical standpoint this show has a lot going for it. Also, please read this before passing judgment on my score thank you.

First off, the story is obviously geared toward a younger viewing audience. It's a simple premise of an angel in training coming down from heaven. Her main goal is to train to become a full grown angel, but of course, things don't go the straight and narrow. They'll get caught in all sorts of crazy high jinks and silly antics only a magical angel can make up. Obviously this isn't going to have read more

Pita Ten is a slice of life comedy kind of show. I found the characters to be the most enjoyable part of the show. It comes off as being silly a lot of the time. However it also has some more serious elements as well. If you have read the manga (I highly hope that you will read it.) you will notice the show is much more light hearted and quite a bit different.

I also enjoyed the Designs very much. if you like Digi Charat the artist who created those characters also made Pita Ten.

What at first appears to be ''another of those comedy animes'' has actually a pretty deep plot. Yeah, ofcourse its funny and playfull, but it has a very nice feel behind it.

Story: The story starts of with a suprise, kotarou is getting a new neigbour, what he doesnt know is that his neighbor is actually an angel. I liked the story, it was very amusing, but gets very sad near the end. But it has a nice feel of friendship and love in it.
Mark: 8

Art: The art is very cute, i cant say much about it. I think its adorable
Mark: 9

Sound: I loved read more

Well how do I start here? Not good at introduction but I'll try anyway.

First off, take not that I'm not a kid whose watching kid shows. I know for one was that Pita Ten was aim for a younger audience but I'll put it from that perspective that was what the company was aiming at.

The story was actually quite amazing for such a show, better than what I'm expecting. It involves supernatural worlds like angel and demons coming to the human world. And better yet, there was a bit of romance and a lot of comedy in there. It was pretty much random after several read more

Anime: Kamichama Karin
First of all, it's from the same creator and artist, Koge Donbo and Kamichama Karin has some voiceactors who also voices characters from Pita Ten. Kamichama Karin has the same happy cuteness as Pita Ten and both shows have a lot of similairities. Everyone who likes cute and magical girl stuff should watch it ^_^

Anime: Kobato.
In some ways the endings are quite similar.

Both animes have main characters trying to follow their wish; In Pita Ten its Misha trying to become and angel, in Kobato its Kobato trying to get to a place she wants to go to.

Both main character have very long hair and are very cute.

Both have a male character who dislike the main character but softens up to her, In Kobato its Fujimoto, in Pita Ten its Kotarou.

Both about a group of people trying to do one thing or another, and kind of more of an anime made for girls

Anime: Air
Many of the characters in Air seem to be similar to those in Pita Ten. There's the mysterious girl, like Shia, and there's the hyperactive one with a strange past, like Misha. The storyline is also slightly similar, although Air has a darker side to it than Pita Ten. I love the mixture of romance and fantasy in both series.

Okay for some of the aspects at the end of this anime is the bond between friends and in this series its excatly the same and its also very comforting and fun to watch
