Lina and Gourry have traveled to a seaside town where the local specialty is octopus – but there’s a catch! Consuming the octopus has an unfortunate side effect: after eating the delicacy, you lose all language skills and are only able to speak the octopus tongue! Gourry soon comes down with the affliction, and none other than Lina herself is forced to save the day. Joining their ranks are Xellos, Zelgaldis and Amelia – who happen to wander into town at the same time – and a concerned local townsperson. Together, the gang will try to put a stop to the local malevolent octopus clan and restore the power of speech to the masses!
When the young Kotaro (errr...Rotaro) washes up on Papuwa island with a case of amnesia, he has no idea that his life is about to take a turn for the bizarre. With housemates such as the man-maid Liquid, an asexual snail and a transsexual fish with legs, Rotaro will have his hands full! But beneath the tranquility of the island lies a dangerous secret that could destroy the island, and the answer lies only with Rotaro. With enemies from his past afoot, his friends trying to eat him and a giant poisonous mushroom trying to get him high, what’s a young boy to do?!
If you liked the slapstick antics of either Papuwa or Slayers Premium, I know you'd like the other. Admittedly, Slayers has much more of a history than Papuwa, but Premium's standalone qualities pair it nicely with the other. If hilarious and off-the-wall comedy is your thing, look no further than these two anime.
