'All those rectangular faces? Oh, they'll turn round as well.' - Maru Maru, OP to PKN

Laydees. Dudes. Everything in between. Non-organic lifeforms. This - and I repeat, this - is the stuff. The anime of the season? There's some stiff competition, but quite possibly - there's a lot of potential in this lovechild of Chi's Sweet Home, Welcome to the NHK and Mawaru Penguindrum.

So, Poyopoyo Kansatsu Nikki (that's Fluffy Observation Diary to you peeps who like Anglais) is a story of a totally rad cat. The deal here is, and I'm not kidding, he's circular. Try to wrap your head around that for a bit. read more

Recently, there seems to be an increase of anime short series with episodes spanning from 2 to 3 minutes per episode. Pretty much all of these are comedies that rely on quick gags to entertain for their short running times. Needless to say it is not a very diverse field, and its pretty easy to tell whether the show will be a success or a dud almost instantly. Poyopoyo Kansatsu Nikki most certainly is a success. While I could simply say this is because the show's gags work and leave it at that, I will elaborate further because I'm silly and like to do this read more

When I finished this little 3 minute sound-bite, I blinked, put down my soda, and rubbed my eyes. What in the HECK did I just watch? Was this about a cat, named oh-so-adorably, or what? Worry not, my dear friends, this ride got just a little more bumpy.

Don't let that little intro deter you; this was by far one of the funniest clips of anime I've seen in awhile. It delivered to me more laughs than whole freaking episodes. The story was a little odd, let me tell you; the intro was an LSD trip, and I was sort of confused. I mean, hold on, read more

Story is really cute and funny, it made my day easily babysitting kids, Poyo made them laugh a lot. And is a family but I was worry went, Moe is clearly drunk, and passes out in the street. She uses the fluffy round thing as a pillow. Since this is supposed to be a children’s show, I wasn’t expecting a scene like this. I really wasn't. Art was so cute and playful.( I love the colors. )
Sound where so cute, I love Poyo meow. The character designs are mostly chibified that are familiar. It's a basketball! It's a melon! It's… Poyo the cat?! Really. Enjoy read more
