Tasuke Shichiri is the envy of his friends because since his parents are always traveling he can do as he pleases. It's a surprise present from his father that keeps him from being lonely: an odd ring known as the shitenrin. From it comes a moon goddess named Shaorin, dedicated to protecting her "master" -- no matter how much of a mess she makes doing it!

However, it disappointed me completely to the point that at times it was really painful to watch; so painful that a couple of times I fell asleep.

Mamotte starts as your average anime, it introduces its characters, gives you an idea of what is to follow and leaves you with an impression that you will watch a mediocre at least school-life comedy. Well, in the beginning, at least. After that what follows is a bunch of ...

I can't believe I finished this anime. Why? Well first of all, it's not the kind of anime I would watch.

I just finished it because that's the way I am - I finish what I start.

I have to say though that watching it was a bit too painful at times. Some episodes were just so bad, like the episode were Shaorin first went ...
