366 Days of Anime School Uniforms: Day 175/366 Puni Puni Poemy

Day 175/366

Puni Puni Poemy is just pure awesomeness.

Simple green and yellow sailor suit here. Those colours aren't do normal of course which is just another small way this anime stands out. Boys seem to wear green shorts and a green jacket with huge yellow buttons going down the middle which make them match the girls very well. We get to see Poemi wearing the gym uniform randomly which is just white with blue lining around the collars.

Maybe one of the best ways to take your seat in class.

Poemi wearing no skirt is pretty funny to me for some reason.










Overall: Sure why not LOL

Make chii Laugh

I'm a pretty picky person when it comes to what makes me laugh but the following I can't sit through without cracking a smile or having to pause because I'm laughing way too hard. Here are my top 15 comedy anime!

Hare and his strange classmates!

Weda is awesome! That's so not just coffee in her cup! Since she's a pretty heavy drinker.

Guu and Dr. Clive were by far my favourite characters in Hare+Guu.

  1. Hare+Guu
  2. Gintama
  3. Strawberry Marshmallow
  4. Astro Fighter Sunred
  5. Yakitate!! Japan
  6. Detroit Metal City
  7. Cromartie High School
  8. Excel Saga + Puni Puni Poemy
  9. Arakawa Under the Bridge
  10. Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu
  11. Minami-ke
  12. Hetalia
  13. Kyoran Kazoku Nikki
  14. Legend of Koizumi
  15. Ryofuko-chan

Cats + vacumes = hilarious

Bonus anime is Kuruneko! It's 2 minute shorts, it's about cats, it's HILARIOUS! Especially if you REALLY like cats.

Probably my favourite episode

Totally my favourite episode

Clearly I like a lot of slapstick humour and really out there stuff. Hare+Guu was so strange half the time I didn't even understand why it was funny but that it just was! A brilliant weird comedy that totally deserves to be at the top of my list. Gintama makes fun of everything, has a super cast, and is really well written. Strawberry Marshmallow to this day I will always re-watch episode 6. IT NEVER GETS OLD! Yes, even I can like school slice of life comedies. Astro Fighter Sunred combines superheros that suck with wonderful monsters and has cooking lessons in some episodes! The lessons might be simple sure, but it's the hilarious thought that counts. Who would have thought an anime about BREAD would be so hilarious. Yup Yakitate!! Japan yet again combines comedy and food, 2 things that go together very well.

Freddie & flowing purple hair oh so funny


Detroit Metal City won me over with its way out there crudeness, yet it has a wonderful soft side to it that the main protagonist does perfectly. Who would have thought you could tame your inner beast and let it out through music! Cromartie High School is about many strange boy delinquents gathered in one school. They sometimes don't quite know what being a delinquent is all about. Simply hilarious! Excel Saga + Puni Puni Poemy are both wacky and rely on being super random. You'll be laughing or holding your head because of how hyper it is. Arakawa Under the Bridge combines a lot of strange people and tosses a seemingly ordinary man right in the middle of the weirdos. Like Gintama it is very well written and has an amazing cast to back it up. Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu is a random comedy right in the middle of the FMP series, that is quite series for the majority of the time. I personally think people should watch Fumoffu after the first series to really get a good laugh out of it. You'll want your very own Bonta-kun after viewing.

Delicious seafood rainbow!

And people think Akagi is intense!

Minami-ke follows 3 sisters as they go through school and the strange situations they get into. Yet another slice of school life comedy I like! It had a lovely charm to it because they aren't all the same age so we get a lot of different kind of jokes. Hetalia is personified countries of the world. That's just too good for me not to find hilarious. (BL Pairings aside XD) Kyoran Kazoku Nikki takes 8 very VERY different "people" and turns them into one great big random messed up family. Darkness lurks around every corner for each character but aside from that very hilarious. Legend of Koizumi was just wow. They took Hetalia in a totally different direction that turned out to be intense but it a very good and funny way. Ryofuko-chan is a knock off of Romance of the Three Kingdoms which I'm very much a fan of. They took my favourite character, Lu Bu, and turned him into a young girl that REALLY likes breasts! It was just way too funny for me to handle at times.

Lu Bu goes from this...

... to THIS!

So there you have it! My favourite comedies! If you know of something that I should love and haven't watched please do suggest it. I love to laugh!

chii Finally Made One!

Favourites are a great thing. What makes these shows mine is that I think about them very often when I'm thinking about anime and wish to watch them more than once. Some of them I've already watched 5+ times. To be a favourite they also must be entertaining as a whole series. So if they have season 2's or more, I should have loved them just as much as their season one. Everything on the list below applies! I've been meaning to make this kind of list for many years now and I've finally sat down and mulled through all my anime titles and picked these 100 to be my absolute favourites.

Like digitalboy I'll be updating this list regularly from now on but not once a month. I will only update when I feel an anime has stood up to my standards to break into this 100 anime list. I will keep a list at the bottom of this page which of which anime has moved in and which it has kicked out. I doubt that it'll happen very often but time will tell.

365 Days of Anime Characters: Day 120/365 Futaba Aasu

Day 120/365

Futaba Aasu

From the anime Puni Puni Poemy, Futaba is Poemy's classmate and best friend. She just happens to be madly in love with Poemy too. She part of the Aasu sisters which has 7 of them in it. All of the girls have interesting magical powers that they can use for defense only.

Why I like her: I always enjoyed the girl that has a superpower to make everything happy around her. We first meet her sleeping at school before everyone arrives which was hilarious to me. Her cuteness is the best part of her for sure. So adorable.

Why I hate her: While Futaba's lesbian needs were quite hilarious, I was sad that her feelings weren't acknowledged by Poemy very well, if at all. She was so blatantly obvious about it too.

Overall: Parody anime are simply awesome if you like what they are parodying anyway 😛 Futaba is a parody of Tomoyo Daidouji from Cardcaptor Sakura. While I found Tomoyo kinda creepy and not as cute as Futaba, the similarities between the 2 are quite obvious with looks and actions.

Futaba loves everything about Poemi Watanabe

My Top 20 OVAs of the Decade 2000-2009

The first installment of my decades list are the ovas of 2000-2009. I went through my watched list and basically wrote down everything that I thought was good and took into consideration the rating I gave them as well. When I first listed everything it came up to 17. So I decided to search through again to make it an even 20 as I think that sounds better to say "Look at my top 20 list!" than to say "Look at my top 17 list!" XD

Lots of other bloggers have already put up their lists and you can find them all listed over on Kitsune's page. Check them out! There's a lot of great lists to be had for all those list crazy people!

Putting this list together was pretty easy but putting them in an order took a lot of thought. It's always difficult to pick a favourite out of favourites. I also noticed I have some pretty quirky tastes going on with some of these ovas.  So without further delay here is the list!

Bath time can be so much fun with family!

A tender father son moment.

A tender father son moment.

20. ) Papa to Kiss in the Dark (2005) - Yes I hear you all screaming already... "oh great another yaoi crazed fan girl" but I can't help that part of me. Maybe it comes with being female maybe it just comes from enjoying a completely silly story about boy boy love! I'm going with the latter on this one as I know plenty of women that don't give a crap about yaoi titles. This ova takes a thrilling  leap into 2 different taboo's that a lot of people would consider very risky!

19.) Early Reins (2003) - Now this one is nothing special at all but it holds a special place in my heart as I love westerns. This took that and gave it an amazing spin that only anime could do. Strong and mighty female hero's battling it out against foes.

The girls of the wild west.

The girls of the wild west.

18.) Bleach: The Sealed Sword Frenzy (2005) - This ova is by far the best spin off from Bleach that there is. It was exciting and engaging all the way through and I got a lot of enjoyment out of it. I can't imagine any Bleach fan not liking this amazing ova.

17.) Iriya no Sora, UFO no Natsu (2005) - Military, war, and love generally do not mix very well. Let alone with children. But I found myself gripped by the tragic story of these two young lovers and the animation was very lovely to look at.

Stunning animation

16.) URDA (2003) - I've always enjoyed weird tales of WW2 involving time travel. Especially ones that take women as the lead rolls. This short ova does not disappoint with the drama and thrilling action!

15.) TANK S.W.A.T. 01 (2006) - Tanks, action, twins, and general kick ass! This quick ova was a great addition to a old beloved series Dominion Tank Police that I grew up with.

Walking along with her chicken sidekick.

14. Ghost Talker's Daydream (2004) - Following the story of a S&M dominatrix that can see and talk to ghosts. This alone was a seller for me! Hilarious situations and characters. My only regret from this show was it should have had more episodes. Endless stories could have been created with this amazing idea.

13.) Ryofuko-chan (2007, 2008) - Me being a huge fan of almost anything that has to do with the stories of Romance of the Three Kingdoms I found myself laughing so much my sides hurt. Seeing beloved characters put into perverted loli bodies was more than enough to make me love this short but entertaining show.

Brave warriors turned into lolis.

Looking for his friend in this modern world.

12.) Spirit of Wonder: Scientific Boys Club (2001) - Now science and anime never seem to sound like a good combination but this ova pulled it off. Being able to take its self seriously and having a strong suit for drama and character development I found myself enjoying every moment and urge people not to overlook it because of its scientific feel as you'll be missing out on a terrific story.

11.) Read or Die (2001) - It's been a really long time since I watched this show and it's one of my first anime DVD's I bought. I always find myself saying that when I see the title and it always makes me wonder why I haven't watched the Read Or Die TV series but then I always ask myself "What if it doesn't live up to my expectations?" I have such fond memories of the characters, action, and drama that went on in this ova that I'm too chicken to potentially ruin that memory.

10.) Animatrix (2003) - A compilation of 9 amazing shorts to go along with the blockbuster movie The Matrix. The Wachowski brothers were greatly inspired by anime and thought it would be fun to collaborate with famous anime creators to make this amazing collection of work. I for one enjoyed the outcome of this partnership.

9.) First Squad: The Moment Of Truth (2009) - Studio 4C does it again. This ova took me by surprise at how much I enjoyed it. It takes place during WW2 but gets twisted in such a strange way to tell an amazing fictional story in such a way it makes you think it really happened. Real life Soviet and German war veterans are shown telling stories about the real war throughout the ova but made to look like they are talking about the events occurring in the show. It's a great confusing watch!

Bright colours.

Crazy horsemen.

8.) Hotori: Tada Saiwai o Koinegau (2005) - This touching story is about a girl who suffers from a disease where her memory rapidly deteriorates. One day she meets an android that is being trained to take on the memories of a boy who has died. It's really hard to say what is so amazing about this series without giving anything away so if you haven't watched this wonderful ova I suggest you do so.

7.) Karas (2005 - 2007) - This ova is mixed with thrilling characters, great action, and an amazing story to go along with it. It has a very unique animation style that I found to be very eye pleasing. It took a very dark tone but added amazingly bright colours to contrast that feel.

6.) Voices of a Distant Star (2002) - This short space + romance + time travel ova took me away. I'm generally not one for romance in general but this was well done and gorgeous to look at. If it would have been any longer than 30 minutes I think it would have been ruined.

5.) Alien Nine (2001) - Elementary school children generally don't do it for me when it comes to anime but wait... They have to wear alien's as hats to fight off the bad alien's that crashed on Earth. Wow ok you got me there. This show starts off simple and pleasant enough then dives into a messed up world of confusion.

The alien "hats"

The alien "hats"

Such a bonding experience!

Such a bonding experience!

4.) Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari (2009) - A new interesting take from the Tenchi franchise. This one has got to be my favourite yet. Stunning animation, beautiful music, and a huge cast of characters. It holds true to keeping things on the funny side while maintaining that serious feel. I'm aware that this ova is still airing but it is just too good not to put into my list.

3.) Detroit Metal City (2008) - For a show about music that I generally do not listen to (Metal) I found myself falling in love with this short series. Laughter was created throughout all 12 of these 10 minute episodes. I even went as far as making friends of mine that do not normally watch anime to watch this. Music is a big part of my circle of friends and I knew it would be appreciated greatly. All characters were very well developed, especially the oh so confused main character Negishi Souichi. It was a delight to watch this show and I look forward to another series to appear someday.


2.) Hunter X Hunter OVA (2002) - This ova took what I loved about the later half of the HxH series and completed it. The story was stunning and always kept me pushing the next button on my player to see how the story would wrap up.

1.) Puni Puni Poemy (2001) - A hilarious parody anime that doesn't shy away from making fun of everything and anything! Taking Excel Saga much much further with its energetic, eccentric, and exotic feel. It takes you on a ride that you don't know if you want to stay on over and over again or get off.

Look forward to the next in line for the decades list! My Top 20 Movies of 2000-2009.
