There are anime that get aired on Saturday morning...and then there are anime that NEED to be aired on a Saturday morning!

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 ...
