Astarotte No Omocha

Surprisingly, it doesn't suck.

Oh, I'm going to hell now...

1 Yes you are. Any show about bodily secretions automatically sucks for that reason alone.

2 They pretty much discard that premise.  They actually turned it into a show about family values.

They didn't do as effective a reversal as Popotan, but it's nothing like what you'd expect given the original concept.

3 I only looked at it because the review on ANN was far more positive than I'd expected:
In 2010 I gave Surprise of the Year honors to Asobi ni Iku yo! for its unusually and unexpectedly high level of cleverness and general quality. Astarotte's Toy is not on that same level – especially not on visuals – but still more thoroughly defies initial expectations on the positive side than any other new title so far this year (except possibly Puella Magi Madoka Magica).
Turns out they're right.  On the other hand, initial expectations for this show were way negative.

4 I knew about it because of WAH's comic, funnily enough.

5 I hadn't seen that.  Yeah, that's one take on it. wink
