Synopsis:

One day, the typical Sunao Moriyama found something not-so-typical in his refrigerator: a small creature between the potatoes and mayonnaise that he dubs Potemayo! Sunao decides to take care of Potemayo and takes her with him everywhere he goes, and as a result Potemayo quickly becomes popular with Sunao's classmates. However, the tranquility of the new friendship is broken with the arrival of another creature from Sunao's fridge – this time a scythe-wielding laser-shooting horned creature he dubs Guchuko. Now, every day brings new adventures and surprises with Potemayo and Guchuko around!

Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu

Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu

Sousuke Sagara is far from the average high school student - not only is he highly trained in military tactics, he puts his knowledge to use in every single applicable situation (and even those nonapplicable ones.) So, when confronted with high school, he tends to turn average high school experiences into off-the-wall adventures. Love letters become terrorist threats and field trips become commando operations; his survival depends on the watchful eye of his best friend and classmate, Kaname. Together, they may just make it out of high school alive...

Fumoffu and Potemayo are shows that put a unique spin on high school slapstick comedy. Through rediculous happenings and consistently sirprising gags, both are show which keep you on your toes and can be non-stop comedy all the way through. Both shows have a semblance of something deeper within the characters and their relationships, but never go beyond implications, instead focusing as much as possible on the comedy. Potemayo and Fumoffu are both experiences that you will not have in any other anime.

Just like Potemayo, Hidamari Sketch is an anime about nothing with no plot, no character development, no flashy animation, just cute stuff.

Lucky Star

Lucky Star

In present day Japan, the life of a school girl is never dull. The easily-bored Konata never finds time to study because of her otaku habits, which frustrates hard-working Kagami to no end. On the other hand, laid-back Tsukasa always manages to go with the flow, while Miyuki is concerned with keeping her status as resident know-it-all. Join these four girls as they muse and meander their way through everyday events such as eating chocolate cones, doing homework, gaming, and trips to the beach galore.

A certain lack of content is not necessarily a problem for an anime -- plenty of stories that have no real depth or significance are capable of providing great entertainment. This is the case with both Potemayo and Lucky Star. They are clearly both bagatelles, filled with passages of aimless chit-chat and simplistic humour. But they nevertheless manage to draw forth one involuntary smile after another.

If you like the ultimately pointless but nevertheless very funny passages in either of these anime, you will surely like the other as well.

Mitsudomoe

Mitsudomoe

Satoshi Yabe is the newest employee at Kamohashi Elementary School. Wide-eyed and enthusiastic, he’s thrilled to finally be fulfilling his dream of being a teacher – but little did Satoshi know that he’d be assigned to class 6-3, a group that houses none other than the violent and perverted Marui triplets! Between the girls trying to hook him up with the busty school nurse, dealing with the unfortunate consequences of a hamster named 'Titties' and other misadventures, Satoshi’s dream of an uneventful school life has come to an end!

Deceptivly cute are these show's game.

Think this show is for kids just because the animation style is adorable? Guess again! These shows are filled with blood, violence and sex jokes. So if you like violence or sex jokes in a "cute setting" check out this title.

Pugyuru

Pugyuru
  • TV (13 eps x 4 min)
  • 2004

In a normal neighborhood in a normal city, a young maid arrives from the maid village to help out a young unnamed girl. But this battery-operated being is no ordinary maid! Not only can she remove her head and turn her body into glue (amongst other things), Cheko-chan also has the wackiest of friends. From Mizore, the edible snow spirit from the north, to Nachiko, a large squid who likes to change faces, to Kanato the Yankee, the bully who is the strongest of them all, it seems the craziness has just begun in the life of a once typical high school student.

Both Pugyuru and Potemayo focus on an ordinary school student with a strange and cute little companion. Both have a certain amount of odd comedy about them and while Potemayo is more fleshed out as a series than Pugyuru, if you liked one you may enjoy the other.
