*Before I'd begin I'd like to state that the following description + contents of the show may be objectionable to some individuals. Discretion is advised.
Oruchuban Ebichu follows the story of a house-cleaning hamster who lives with her owner, who struggles through he life as an office worker and dealing with her tumultuous love life with her dirtbag boyfriend, Kaishounashi. The show deals with adult humour, often sexual themes, detailing the sex-life of Ebichu's owner. Ebichu is adorable and a lovable character, and I one day wish to name a hamster after her... that and hamtaro... oh a boy can dream... I've rewatched this show a few times, and it's definitely one of my favourites.
Sexy Commando Gaiden: Sugoi yo!! Masaru-san, or simply Sexy Commando, as I will be referring to it, is a great crazy comedy series following the story of Masaru, and extremely weird guy with heavy discs on his shoulders that give him mysterious powers. He forms a club on the basis of his power, the Sexy Commando, and appropriately the club has adventures just as strange as Masaru himself. I'm a big fan of this show, and it's theme song. I'm not sure if I can even explain what it is I like about it, it's just ridiculous funny and has a certain charm I can't quite pin down, definitely my kinda show.
I remember when I first watched Chi's sweet home, I was enamoured by the cuteness of Chi. The story follows the story of a kitten named Chi and her family who found her and took her in. It folows her cute daily adventures, just a cat doing cat things. A library I used to visit had the manga, so I also read a fair amount of it. I have fond memories with the manga, which is watercoloured and cute. Definitely just a cute no-stress show to pop on and watch.
The theme song for this show is what I think of when I think of "Chi's Sweet Home". Infinitely catchy and cute. I love this song and it holds a place in my heart, as does this season in particular, as I think I probably watched it before the first.
I've included both the first and second seasons in this review, hope you don't mind^^. Morita-san wa mukuchi follows the story of Morita Mayu, a quiet highschooler who is often misunderstood and put in awkward situations as a result of her being quiet and listless. The show is cute and the jokes are often funny. It's been a really long time since I've seen this, if I'm being honest, so I don't remember much besides characters & premise, but really that's all I need to understand a slice of life. The show is fun and follows daily highschool life of Morita and her friends.
Marukaite poyo PYA! Poyopoyo is a cute show about a very round cat named Poyo, who is found by Moe Satou, while drunk, who uses Poyo as a pillow on her way home. The show tells the story of his life with his new family and his round cat adventures. With a cute style, funny jokes, and a cute catchy theme song, this show sure does hold a place in my heart. It is one of my younger sister's favourite anime. I love this show it is very cute yes :thumbs up:SPECIAL INTERVIEW WITH MY SISTER
As this show is one of her favourites, I thought I get her expert opinion on it for you all to get a better opinion :thumbs up:
ME: I'm doing a review for poyo poyo for my site and uhh-
MY SISTER: OH... *eyes light up like I've never seen before (wtf)*
ME: So I thought I'd get your expert opinion and your thoughts, is there anything you'd like to say?
MY SISTER: He's round.... and beautiful... and round... and loving and.......... and cute
ME: *walking back down the stairs* thank you for your thoughts
I hope you enjoyed that special interview I prepared
For those who are familiar with Aliexpress, and those who are not, it is an online shopping site that hosts chinese sellers and often sells wholesale goods. One of these listings is a knock-off keychain of our friend Poyo, who, in knock-off tradition, comes in many colours + his original. I found a very funny review for the product, please take a look.
I thought this view was incredibly helpful! and super funny. The exacto knife in the background feels menacing to the poyo's existence. Anyways, if you for some reason need the listing, feel free to contact me... somehow... I'll work on a site email soon, but for now, you can use my SNS profiles, if it isn't too much of a hassle.
