Porfy, his younger sister Mina, and their parents live a humble but happy life in the Grecian countryside. They've just started running a gas station, much to Porphy's joy, and it seems like only good things are in store for their future. However, a huge earthquake changes all that, leaving Porfy without a home or a family -- sans Mina, who seems to have disappeared in the commotion. Now, Porfy is determined to find his sister and be able to live together happily again.

"The world is vast. When you are lost, you shouldn't just hold on to one viewpoint, but instead, you should accept many viewpoints. Many things have happened and I was afraid in the beginning. There were good people. There were also people who seemed kind, yet they deceived me."

Too bad that many people didn't find this anime. Or if they find it, they think that it is boring and not interested at all. One thing I loved from this anime is familial love. Current anime shows always show about ecchi and other stuff which seems to be overused. The first 10 episodes were ...

I feel bad for the people who watched Porfy no Nagai Tabi while it was airing. Because so few people were watching it to begin with, there was no one interested in subbing it; in fact, the entire show (52 episodes) had already aired before a fansub group finally began to work on it.

Porphy no Nagai Tabi is really not an anime to watch if your looking for something intense, fast paced or addicting (it's a slice of life ^^").

The anime is light and soft despite it being about two wandering orphans without a home because it's being shown through a child's eyes. The anime continuously hints at darker things going on behind the scenes yet these are only subtle hints that have no importance in the story whatsoever and as we watch Porphy and Mina start to shift and change as they grow, we see a little more of these come to light. More complex emotions ...
