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

For me who didn't play psp games

with art like that, at first i think it's child story (like doraemon or ninja hattori).
with thought like that make popolocrois is memorable for me.

Story: plot is rather flat, but the conversation, situation, and emotion is not the level for child story

Art: Surprisingly, with art like that it can show many mimics and emotion. and i become like this ^^

Sound: Amazing, opening is very great and ending is more popular than popolocrois itself (and have 2 versions, i love miyajima eri version)

Character: I like it. All character have plus minus personality

Enjoyment: not to good for me because flat plot. 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
