Potelated

Oh man.  No question, Potemayo is the pick of the current season.

I worried after the first episode that the joke would get tired.  But Potemayo turns out to be so not the one-joke series.

Highly recommended.

1 How many half-hour eps of it have you seen so far? (It's one of those two-15-minute-eps-released-in-half-an-hour shows, like Ninja Nonsense, which is why I qualify it that way.)

Ah, Guchuko's great chestnut chase. I saw frame grabs from that episode and the chase scene looked like it was wonderful.

But the picture of two kids face down in the snow surrounded by blood bothered me a bit. Please, tell me that Guchuko didn't kill them.

Itty bitty legs notwithstanding, it looks as if Guchuko is extremely strong. How else could she move so fast, let alone bouncing up to the tops of houses? How else could she haul the carcass of a cow into Kyo's yard to leave it as a gift?

One time I compared Guchuko to a feral cat. I'm beginning to get the impression that's a lot more accurate than I had realized. She really does seem to like Kyo, but she's not ready to become domesticated.

4 And the doughnut-and-weighted-basket trap Kyo's mother set had me giggling for a long time. Even if Guchuko had gotten trapped inside it, she'd have shredded that basket with her axe. (And then taped it all back together again.)

5 Guchuko "killed" about half of Kyo's classmates, but they don't stay dead.

6 I found a video clip of the snowball fight, including Guchuko's involvement. Looks like she was doing flying kicks, not axe chops. It's amazing something that small can be that dangerous.
