Puni Puni Poemi is a spin-off of Excel Saga, the classic lampoon of all that is anime. It takes the daughter of two Excel Saga characters and puts her through parodies of shoujo, shounen, ecchi, hentai, and everything in-between. This eccentric show is the "Scary Movie" of anime: younger viewers need not apply.
F City, F Prefecture: the battleground where good and evil have finally chosen to decide once and for all who will rule the world…or at least that's the general idea! Neither side seems up for the task, as surviving the brutality of everyday life is enough of a chore. On the side of evil is the organization of Across, its only member the loudmouthed and abrasive Excel who struggles just to put food in her stomach; on the side of good, three disenfranchised, unemployed bachelors whose only pursuit in life is romance. Add in alien invasions, jungle warfare, and Mexican immigrant laborers to Japan, and this war doesn't seem likely to be ending soon!
Puni Puni Poemy started its life as an inside joke of Exel Saga, an anime within an anime so to speak.
The two are very alike, so you can think of Puni Puni Poemy as an extra episode of Excel Saga that spoofs magical girl anime.
Because the same people are behind both Excel Saga and Puni Puni Poemy, they share the same spirit of random over the top comedy. Anime conventions are targeted in both series, with ES parodying a gamut of genres while PPP focuses mainly on mocking fanservice. Anyone who enjoyed one of these series is bound to enjoy the other.
Both Excel Saga and PPP are full of crazy randomness. They were also created by the same studio and producer. Also, some of the characters are played by the same people.
Puni Puni Poemy goes right along with Excel Saga. They have the same zany style (including parodies), similar music at times and occasional cameo appearances!
Both series are products of Shinichi Watanabe (aka "Nabeshin"--wata-NABE+SHIN-chi), they also both include characters that closely resemble their differently named counterparts, and they share voice actresses. Both are wacky and cross reference each other from time to time. Each one is a must see, and if you've seen one, see them both!
If you enjoy fast-paced comedy anime involving panties, explosions, death, and afros, then Excel Saga and PPP will be your right up your alley.
Excel Saga and PPP are actually sisters, and you can see it clearly: they're both really wacko! They have equally as much of ecchi, hentai, epic tales and craziness, all spiced up with a storyline which is sometimes a bit hard to understand. Well, they are good entertainment, anyway.
Same zany style with even an overlapping character or two. If you like the inane, twisted humor of one you'll find more in the other. The 2 episode Puni Puni Poemi is even more hyper and bizarre than the 26 episode Excel Saga, but you'll get a bit more continuity and a lot more viewing time out of the latter. Enjoy.
Naota Nanbada is a boring young boy who leads a boring life in a boring town. His older brother has left for America, and the closest he comes to any excitement is when his deadbeat dad has too much sake. But things change one day when a bizarre girl zooms up to him on a scooter and smacks him in the face with her guitar. What's more, once Naoto returns home he discovers that this strange woman has arrived ahead of him and moved in! Not only does she constantly engage in perverted activities with Naota's father and flirt with the young man himself, but she also claims to be an alien who is searching for the ‘Pirate King.' Now, Naota must learn to live with this new intruder, deal with an odd government agent who sports exceptionally large eyebrows and the mysterious Medical Mechanica, and come to terms with the fact that there are a variety of robots and weapons emerging out of his head - amongst other things. Perhaps boring wasn't so bad after all...
Puni Puni Poemy and FLCL share a use of absurdity and randomness as a plot device. While the former is a comedy and the latter is a coming of age story, if you like the style of one the other is worth a try.
Extremely random and immensely bizarre; that would probably be the best way to describe FLCL and Puni Puni Poemy. Both parody several anime genres with very hyper jokes, and are definitely top recommendations for each other!
Puni Puni Poemy and FLCL are anime that essentially mock anime. Most gags are aimed at anime fans in particular, including plenty of references to other series. Both are extremely random and hyper; the pace often overtakes the plot and insanity prevails. Aimed at older audiences, these anime drip with sexual content that is overt and highly parodied in PPP, and turned into innuendo in FLCL. While FLCL is visually more spectacular and has a great soundtrack to boot, PPP covers the same ground in terms of randomness and anime culture subversions.
Both are extreamly weird, very hyperactive, and have lots of randomness at every turn. Leave your brain turned off. Neither should be watched by a young audiance. If you liked one you should like the other.
When Kaede, a girl frustrated with her grades like any other teenager, finds a female Ninja attempting to steal her underwear, she didn't expect a friendship to be the result. And as the modern day world of ordinary high schooler Kaede collides with Ninja-in-training Shinobu, she soon comes to discover that the world of modern day Ninjas are filled with parties, picnics, and the training of the elder master Ninja yellow form changing glob: Onsokumaru!
Puni Puni Poemy and Ninja Nonsense are both spastic, sometimes non-sensical and often perverted parodies of anime series. The pacing and humor style are very similar to both. If you enjoyed one and are looking for more of the same, you can't go wrong by taking a look at the other.
Angels are genteel and graceful messengers from Heaven, right? Wrong! Sakura Kusakabe will create an invention that inadvertently ruins the future for womankind and thus, angels from the future have arrived to do the only reasonable thing: assassinate him! Fortunately for Sakura, one of them, Dokuro-chan, takes a liking to him but her intentions to protect him prove downright lethal. When Sakura’s not dodging her spiked bat Excalibolg, he’s fighting for his life on river escapades. And when he’s not quick enough, Dokuro-chan’s catchy incantation brings him back to life! Bludgeoning and blood splatters aside, can Dokuro-chan save the one she loves without damaging the future?
I can't really make up my mind as to what 'Bokusatsu' is supposed to be about, but in any case it's a parody of magical girl anime like 'Puni'. It's definitely something you'd like if you liked 'Puni'.
Dokuro-chan and Puni Puni Poemy both succeed in creating a strange and hyper comedy anime. Both make fun of several anime styles by taking them to the extremes. These are definitely very similar anime.
Puni Puni Poemy and Bokusatsu Tenshi are a perfect match. Both are oddball comedies with hyperactive heroines running amok with plenty of ecchi moments thrown in for good measure. They have a rather tenuous plot that is compensated by a constant gag-fest that mocks anime clichés, mainly the magical girl genre in PPP and harem series in BT.
Both Dokuro-chan and Puni Puni Poemy have a very crude and random sense of humour. They both have plenty of sexual and violence jokes, are completely bizarre and are both short in duration. If you loved one, you'll enjoy the other just as much.
For young Tsubomi-chan, working as a lingerie-clad hostess and surviving high school is a way of life. Little does she know that she is about to become an unwitting pawn in a battle of orgasmic proportions, once she beds the charming Hikaru and seals her fate as a Papillon Soldier! Using her patented Rose Orgasm Power Erection special move, Tsubomi-chan must fight the minions of Regina Apis, a ruthless woman who seeks to possess all the sexual energy of the world!
Both Papillon Rose and PPP are sexually explicit parody shows, the first being a parody on mahou shoujo anime, more specifically Sailor Moon and the latter being a spin-off from Excel Saga. They're both very crude and in-your-face with their borderline hentai jokes (Papillon Rose being a bit more borderline, PPP being funnier). If you enjoyed the flat out badness from one of these shows, you'll be "happy" to find the same in the other.
Utterly crude and perverted, both Puni Puni and Ligerie Senshi completely disregard good taste and just run with some unbelievably ecchi storylines. Although completely random, both shows will appeal to the same audience who will probably find them quite amusing.
