There are anime that get aired on Saturday morning...and then there are anime that NEED to be aired on a Saturday morning! Seriously, why hasn't Popolocrois been released to the US yet or broadcasted on some children's channel like NickToons or Cartoon Network yet?! If there's any children's anime that SERIOUSLY needs to be exported to the US and introduced to American children, Popolocrois is it! It's super cute while not going to the point of saccharine, it has engaging, funny, relatable characters, deep character study, a fun and simple yet deep and interesting story, heartwarming scenes, great musical numbers, and just an overall fun read more

PoPoLoCrois Monogatari is a video game series I rarely see mentioned. It was initially released in Japan in 1995 (based on an earlier manga series, which I hear isn't very good), but was passed up for localisation in favour of Beyond the Beyond due to the latter's psuedo-3D battle engine, preferable over PoPoLoCrois' (albeit absolutely beautiful) 2D isometric sprite based play. It spawned numerous sequels, and the first two titles (as well as a specially made scenario) were eventually ported to the PSP and brought to the Western world. The two titles were heavily edited (over half the content was removed from the first game) read more

Popolocrois is a childish anime.
So, if it would be watched with this "eyes" the experience will be more enjoyable.

A simple story and development about friendship and "duties".
The background is way more interesting than the main story, and the 25 episodes show us more about the characters than the development of the story.
Dragons, Sky and humans are a good idea, but unfortunattely forgotten in the most of the show.

The design is very different from the other anime, but after some episodes it turns enjoyable too. The voice casting is one of the highest points, Gamigami and Shiroshiki are just perfect.

But, the "gold" in Popolocrois is just read more

Poplocrois monogatari starts with a prince Pietoro who was born to a Dragon mother and a Human. So he acquires power due to his dragon blood. He had a friend who is a fairy (born as a sprite and brought up as a witch with alternate personality Kai) name Narcia. Most of the time this young prince roams in the forest with Narcia. Accident created by Gami Gami Maou who considers himself as villain brings a wind clan girl named Hyuu, who steals indirectly dragon powers of Pietoro. Remaining story is getting it back.

Characters: Most irritating characters are Hyuu and Pietoro because he forgives Hyuu's read more
