Just finished watching Popotan.


It's a study of friendship, and family, of memory, and loss. With gratuitous boobies, ferrets, and dancing dandelions. It may not be the most significant anime series ever, but it is nonetheless recommended.

I particularly liked the closing credits of the final episode, where the fansubbers thanked everyone involved in producing the series, a reminder that people work hard to subtitle these shows because they love them.

1 Funny how the show ends up exploring such serious themes, isn't it? I believe it was the episode near the end involving Konami's daughter that finally proved the story had far more depth than that of most other shows with similar pedigrees. Those who write off Popotan from the very beginning miss out, I'm afraid.

2 Yes, and even earlier, when Mai was lost and tried to build a new life for herself. Serious themes and gratuitous boobies.
