Anime Of The Week – Poyopoyo Kansatsu Nikki

More More More Poyo =)

You Remember This Guy Right?

Poyopoyo Kansatsu Nikki (known as Poyopoyo Observation Diary) Has been suprising anime watchers everywhere with how entertaining and good this show is.

The show is about a “totally round cat” called Poyo (fluffy) and his 3 minute Adventures about him and his owner Sato. The Art style is cute fluffy and the show is consistently funny and amusing.

You can see, from the screen shot of Moe waking up, that the artwork is very nice. The animation seems “real” (not Flash-based). The character designs are mostly chibified that are familiar to all anime watchers. The backgrounds however are fairly distinctive; they show a lot of flair (I love the color scheme in the “Moe wakes up” scene, for example), and are handled in a loose, painterly way.

The humor isn’t bad. It has mostly been situational, that is, instead of jokes about how whacky these characters are, they have really been jokes about the situations someone encounters when living with a cat, think Simons Cat But massive, fat and cuddly cute =).

These very short anime don’t have a strong track record. I have never seen one with production values as good as this. Maybe Poyopoyo Kansatsu Nikki can hit the sweet spot.

Poyo Poyo is the first anime to get a standing ovation from the Anicom groups and begs for more =) Everyone has 3 minutes a week spare so I fully recommend this anime to you =)
