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!

Story Potemayo has an ubber basic story every episode with a few exceptions stands alone Suano goes through his regular life which mostly involves going to school with potemayo who do to her infantile curiosity usually causes some sort of commotion and Suano usually is there waiting for her to learn and comfort her when she needs it most of the things that happen resolve themselves by the end of the episode. Even though the storyline is pretty basic it is still enjoyable a quite funny. Overall if you’re looking for anything serious this is not your series I watched this show mostly between other more serious anime as sort of a pallet cleanser. Characters Sunao Moriyama - He is the male protagonist a junior high school boy who really doesn’t say much he is potemayos care taker and is often just there to support her. He is a logical sort of person but is not very good at expressing emotions this combination gives him a cool sort of aura and makes him seem kind of spacey. Potemayo - She is the focus of the series and is what I assume to be the baby form of some sort of alien. Potemayo looks like a small girl with cat ears and a puffy tail. She has a crush on sunao and becomes very jealous whenever any other girl shows too much interest in him she mostly gets around by riding on sunao's head but she can walk thus adding to the baby like qualities. Mikan Natsu - Mikan is one of Sunao's classmates; she has a huge crush on him, but due to her soft-spoken personality, she does not find it easy to convey her feelings of love. Mikan will often have outrageous fantasies involving her and Sunao in a relationship together, which causes her to space out almost every time she sees him. Kyō Takamimori - Kyō is another one of Sunao's classmates, and is Mikan's close friend. She has a tomboyish personality, and is athletic. She is also an excellent cook, especially of sweets, and has become involved with Guchuko as a result. Kyō has been the only person who has ever been able to hold Guchuko; this was once when she helped Guchuko get out of a bush and another when she believed Guchuko had died. Guchuko -Guchuko is another mysterious creature that appeared in Sunao's refrigerator, and is somewhat similar to Potemayo in appearance. Guchuko is named by Kyō Takamimori shortly after she ran into Guchuko at school. Guchuko carries a unique scythe (which looks somewhat like an axe) with a skull on it, and can fire strong energy beams from two living horns (or possibly worms) on either side of her head. She has a very self-sufficient personality, and has only partially warmed up to Kyō, who often gives Guchuko food when at school or at home Guchuko often repays Kyō by putting pig or cow carcasses on her desk in school or in front of her house at home. It is strongly hinted Guchuko has a crush on Kyō (similar to Putumayo’s on Sunao) as she continually blushes around Kyō and once attacked Potemayo who was about to be fed one of Kyō's snacks out of jealously. Guchuko sleeps in a tree right outside Kyō's house, and she has the habit of breaking doors with her scythe to go through (and patch them up afterward) instead of using them normally. The rest of the characters include: Nene Kasugano (classmate), Mudō Kirihara (classmate), Nene Kasugano (classmate), Kōdai Moriyama (Suanos father), Yasumi Natsu (Mikan’s younger brother/classmate), Tomari Sek (kid in the neighborhood, Miku Moriyama (Suanos late mother). These characters are used mostly as plot devices but are still quite memorable and unique. Animation The animation is pretty good quality though the background detail is a bit fuzzy most of your attention is drawn to the characters who are almost always doing something so you don’t really notice what’s behind them other than to establish where they generally are. Sound The sound quality is great and the music fits the mood the opening is very suited to the anime almost to the point that it seems to have been created for the anime. The voices were spot on and really seemed to fit each characters perfectly. Overall This anime was very cute and funny I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a good laugh. If you’re looking for a serious anime than this title is not for you.
