Sunao Moriyama finds a strange but cute creature that he names Potemayo. Potemayo starts following him everywhere, usually riding on top of his head. His discovery becomes the center of attention in his class at school. Soon after, a similar creature appears, and is named Guchuko by one of Sunao's classmates. However, Guchuko doesn't seem to be as good-natured as Potemayo.

Honi Honi Honi!

In all honesty I was tempted to leave this review as just those words, but for those of us who don't speak the language, here's a more normal version (that is, if the word normal can be ascribed to this series).

What is Potemayo? When you watch the show this will be the question that you'll find yourself asking over and over.

You could say it's an anime series based on the manga of the same name by Ogataya Haruka. You could also say that it's the result of drug induced euphoria like Hunter S Thompson's "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" (only funnier). read more

both are about school life, both are very funny, and both animes have cute character designs.
Both are the humorous misadventures of a strange creature and its interactions with a small community. Both have cute, simplistic character designs, and each has the same satisfyingly slow pace.
