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!

Alright you. You, who hath stumbled upon this anime and feel like getting a grip on what you may or may not be watching in the future. Sit down and read this review.

So, normally I don't review anything. I've watched a good amount of anime and maybe reviewed two. One was because it was being hated on for it's genre, and now this, because... I've never seen such a twist in my life.

Anyway on to the review.

1: Story - It's interesting. Creepy girl who is detested for just being creepy, but why is she creepy? Because she's being tormented all the time, until Po comes read more

This was the first AIC Plus+ production that I have watched. I daresay it won't be the last.

What impressed me the most about Pupipo! was how balanced each four-minute episode was. Every episode was complete. The action and dialogue always pushed the story forward. The creative team excelled at "showing" not "telling".

The pacing was well done, leaving me craving the next episode, while wondering: What exactly is Po-chan? What's Yuuki's problem? Will Himeji-chan and Yuuki-kun ever get a break?

Conflict and angst didn't last too long (unlike a certain regalia's whiny phase. Yukine, I'm looking at you). Questions and conflicts were resolved without dragging out.

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 read more

Anime short, but surprisingly well balanced, the story and the basic characters but they work,The art is good, not too surprising, although I love the design of the protagonist.
even so I feel that a longer format or even be adapted in movie format would have favored much more the dramatic moments of the last arc; certainly one of the few short animes that I enjoy and recommend

Anime corto, pero sorprendentemente bien equilibrado, la historia y los personajes básicos, el arte es bueno tampoco muy sorprendente aunque el diseño de la protagonista me encanta, el anime funciona, aun así creo que un formato más largo read more
