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 a deep story line like Gunslinger Girl. But for an afternoon kids show this does serve up a decent amount of laughs.
The art doesn't look anywhere near as beautiful as the manga art. But none the less it has a hint of Di Gi Carat inspired work. Complete with black beady eyes on chibi looking characters. And like in Di Gi Carat, the art is pretty forgettable it look slike everyone in the Pita Ten universe are either ten years old or thirty years old.
Sound is very generic and below average. You'll manage to get all the typical comedy sound effects and songs, but thats all that you get. By episode 5 you've pretty much heard everything you are going to hear from this show.
Also reminiscant of di gi carat, how insanely high the cute factor is in this show. Sure giving a description of short beady eyed characters might remind people of Golum from LotR. But this happens to be the direct opposite. Each character has their own unique cuteness on one way or another. But what takes the cake though is the characters seiyu cast. If you take the time to look at the japanese seiyu's anime history you'd be surprised. Who know that C.C., Shinku, Emma, and Mai Kawasumi would appear together in a show like this. If anything good came out of this show, it would have to be how the seiyu's managed to star in a lot of todays hits.
As for myself, I didn't really care much about this show. All though I did watch this in it's entirety, I really wish i could get my 9 hours of my life back. Then why did I watch this show? For the most part I wanted to experience one of the early works of my favorite seiyus (the ones I mentioned before). Although I did like the voice acting, the characters themselves were really a disappointment. Overall, this was a show strictly for kids, if you want to watch a fun anime with a childish sense of humor watch this. Anyone else, avoid it with the only exception of observing your favorite seiyus early work.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.
Art: The art is very cute, i cant say much about it. I think its adorable
Sound: I loved the sound, the music gives a cute and warm feeling
Characters: I did like the characters, Misha is very happy and can be annoying sometimes but she is actually quite awesome. I think the characters are very amusing
Enjoyment: if you seek fun, pita ten is totally the anime for you. The episodes and great characters make you giggle quite alot
Overall: I really liked pita ten, and i give it the final mark of a 9. I recommend it for anyone who likes..romantic drama comedies..yeah..that!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 episode in the anime but things were just getting interesting in every episode. The best I would say was the last 6 episodes where the story will focused on each of the main characters of the show: Kotarao Higuichi, Uematsu, Ayanokonji, Misha and Shia(not in order)
These episode would be the best as you can feel all the emotions of sadness and such when you are watching it so it was the one that actually makes the overall points to be 10. But I admit that sometimes I do fast forward during the earlier episodes that are fillers to me.
Next is the art. It was made in 2002 and 2003 so I think in my opinion at that time when technology was not so advance as in now, the art would be considered the norm on that time. But still the comedy part of drawing the characters never fails to entertained me so it's quite good I would say.
Next one is the sound which was basically was cool. I never fail to watch the opening every episode because it was quite catchy and beautiful. Only the ending I did listen sometimes cause I cannot wait to watch the next one.
I would say all the characters are good, developed really well and show their characteristics for a show aimed for younger audience. I only have to complain about one which was Kaoru and Mitarai. They are so damn irritating that I feel like they are simply put there for the comedy only. These two siblings always quarrel and interferes the relationship of 2 couples in the anime which why I hate them a lot. So I am forced to downgraded the score on character for these reasons.
Thus the enjoyment was 9 but I think overall was quite good. True the anime have some defects here and there but it was very well made. Even the mange was quite popular but I haven't read it yet.
If you are searching for a show which makes you to have a laugh and also don't mind childish anime with (sometimes)random episodes , it would be a great anime to watch and sure to entertained you. If you are here to spread bad things and being sadistic about it, then I advised to keep quiet about it and dropped the whole series so you won't waste time watching it. There's only 26 episodes anyway.
