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!

Pupipo! is a surprising find, as I don’t think I’ve found a show this short that has such a robust and fully-realized narrative structure as this one. It only takes about an hour to finish, and yet it has all the qualities which shows three or four times its length can boast of. There’s solid worldbuilding, compelling characterization, and a story which gracefully arcs through every necessary moment and point, culminating in a shocking yet satisfying ending. Having said this, I must explicitly reiterate how great the story is here. A good story is the foundation of any anime, and I believe it had the ...

This anime is one of those "Slice of Life" series, which you may suspect to be episodic, but actually delivers a compelling plot that ties all major plot lines together and sucks you in, however short.
The art has a noticeable uniqueness to it. If you have seen "High Score Girl" you will recognize it. This short anime is not CG mind you.
All episodes put together are 1 hour of watching, so with such a modest length, even if you do not like it, you will not have lost much. On the other hand, you might enjoy it and will discover something you may consider a ...

Mixed Feelings
I'm not gonna lie, part of me wanted to hate this based on on obviously short the show is, but up until the very last episode, I kind of liked it. But let's break it down a bit further.

1: Story- Now i'll be frank, the story was short with a bit of inconsistencies, but it grows on you as the story goes on. The story follows a young girl named Wakaba who happens to see spirits and as a result, anyone who has any contact with her ends up "cursed." As a result Wakaba is the center of ridicule and has no friends, ultimately keeping ...
