"What is a Puchidol? An adorable little pile of cuteness" - Me, in this review.
The way I view spin-offs is that they have 2 purposes: to provide more material for the fans of the show to enjoy or to draw in new fans to the main show. If a spin-off manages to do the former without doing the latter, I still consider it a success. So, in my mind, the best type of spin-off is one that not only provides existing fans with more content, but also manages to draw new fans in. And PUCHIM@S has managed to convince me to try
out the iDOLM@STER in the near future.
Story - 10/10
What story? This doesn't need a story. It's just a set of daily events that are really entertaining. Each Puchidol has their own special trait, that is apparently supposed to reflect something about the Idol they are a counterpart to (I say apparently because, as previously mentioned, I haven't seen the main show).
Art - 7/10
The art is good. It's colorful. That's about all I can say.
Sound - 10/10
This is a music anime...it'd be shocking if the sound wasn't good.
Character - 10/10
The Puchidols are easily one of the most amusing things I've ever seen - for a few examples: there's Haruka, who multiplies when water is poured on her; Yukipo, who literally digs holes and jumps into them; Miurasan, who can teleport to the location of the person she is thinking of; Chihaya, who bites people (especially girls with bouncy chests); Takanya, who writes down what she's thinking; and Afu, who loves rice balls. Did I mention that they're also really cute? Because they are.
Enjoyment - 10/10
I found this series to be adorable. It's a great time killer, and it's also really short.
Overall - 10/10
The snob in me tells me that I shouldn't even think about giving such a high score to a show like this, but I don't care. I absolutely loved this series.
Normally, I would end this review with a section where I say that if you liked X series, you should watch this, but honestly...I can't think of anything like this. So...yeah.
