Himeji Wakaba is a 5th year elementary school student, and she has the ability to see things that others can't. They are mostly frightening evil spirits, and they tend to do bad things to people who are close to her. As a result, Wakaba has no friends and rarely smiles. On a couple of occasions, she brings home stray animals, but her parents won't let her keep them. However, they're worried about their sad, creepy daughter, so one day they decide that whatever Wakaba brings home next, they'll let her keep.

The next thing she brings home is a pink monster called "Pupipo", but her parents stand by their decision and let her keep it. No one is quite sure what Pupipo is, but it protects Wakaba from the other things she sees. Pupipo also helps Wakaba make friends with an occult-obsessed transfer student and solve problems with bullying. Wakaba's life is a much better place with her pet pink monster!

Alright you. You, who hath stumbled upon this anime and feel like getting a grip on what you may or may not be watching in the future. Sit down and read this review.

So, normally I don't review anything. I've watched a good amount of anime and maybe reviewed two. One was because it was being hated on for it's genre, and now this, because... I've never seen such a twist in my life.

Anyway on to the review.

1: Story - It's interesting. Creepy girl who is detested for just being creepy, but why is she creepy? Because she's being tormented all the time, until Po comes read more

Well, first off.. If you want to watch this anime, do it. Despite it having only 4 minute duration per episode, essentially it has a very good story just like any other anime..
ALERT: (I rated this a 6 because that's an awesome score in my book, don't let it discourage you.) Also, don't let the rating "PG" Discourage you either. I have no idea why it's rated that. It uses bad words sometimes, it's story is pretty complex also, just like any other anime. I think this anime honestly doesn't get the hype it deserves, [ meaning it deserves more ].

For a short anime that altogether is a good hour, it's really good.
Most anime in the past couple of years have so many filler episodes, but this has none since each episode is 4 and a half minutes long on average.

The story of a young girl with supernatural abilities and struggling to find friends is a great one, which leaves you tearing up near the end.

This is truly an anime to watch.

This was the first AIC Plus+ production that I have watched. I daresay it won't be the last.

What impressed me the most about Pupipo! was how balanced each four-minute episode was. Every episode was complete. The action and dialogue always pushed the story forward. The creative team excelled at "showing" not "telling".

The pacing was well done, leaving me craving the next episode, while wondering: What exactly is Po-chan? What's Yuuki's problem? Will Himeji-chan and Yuuki-kun ever get a break?

Conflict and angst didn't last too long (unlike a certain regalia's whiny phase. Yukine, I'm looking at you). Questions and conflicts were resolved without dragging out.
