Fun Show, Bare Breasts, Good Animation 12 Dec 2004
By Stephen Lerch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Popoton is about 4 women (3 sisters and a maid) with weird magical powers who travel around to different areas looking for Popotons (tonpopo's actually, which is the Japanese word for Dandelions). There is definitely something odd about the 4; they seem to have magical powers (for instance, Ai can talk to flowers), and what happens at the end of every episode is the house they live in takes flight, pretty much in the same manner as the dandelion spores, as they travel on their way to the next location.

Each episode is a self contained story which usually involves them helping someone who has problems. The first episode is a boy who is trying to help a girl in his class prove ghosts are real. The second is actually assisting one of the women in the house, Mai, as she hates the feeling she gets when she moves from area to area and loses the friends she's made along the way. The third involves a little girl sick in the hospital who can't go outside or leave the hospital due to her illness. The fourth episode is a little girl who is alone (I can't say anymore as to avoid spoilers).

Animation is high quality stuff (for a TV series anyway). Japanese voice acting is spot on and the show is just a lot of fun to watch.

Mii is played by Momoi Haruko, or... better known as Komugi from Nurse Witch Komugi and The Soul Taker. The character she plays resembles Komugi, actually. They even give her an episode where she Cosplays as a magical girl.

There are also plenty of bare breasts and other various fan service related bits to be found.

What surprises me is the 16 and up rating. I guess it's for the bare breasts, and the bare breasts aren't REALLY shown in a lewd/perverted manner, at least not in my opinion. Other than that, this show is definitely aimed at a broad range of folks, I mean, I think I'd be hard pressed to find a young kid who couldn't enjoy the themes in the show. It's a light hearted show with warm and caring characters... with some bare breasts thrown at you from time to time.

So Popoton gets a high recommendation from me. However, if you don't like cute shows, stay way.

Interesting Anime 8 Dec 2004
By Ryan Clark - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Its pretty good, the "Excessive Nudity" warning on the back cover has some truth behind it... hehe.

I even found Easter Eggs. Go to any episode selection and highlight the "Preview" text and hit right once or twice to highlight two different alternate previews. There's two for each episode.

So touching and lovely 29 Sep 2004
By Marble-Chan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I loved this. Popotan means Dandelions and it's about three sisters (Ai, Mai, and Mii) how live in a house that travel around (thorugh space, time, who knows) with a pet ferret Unagi and a Robot Maid Mare. It's about their adventures and hunt for someone in particular and who are these mysterious people around? A fun and cute anime with episodic overtones and truly addictive theme songs. Anybody who likes cute things buy buy buy

PoPoTan 9 Jun 2007
By Scott Martin Gavin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This is the first disk in a three-disk series, and the first four episodes mainly set up the series and introduce the characters. The first episode centers on Ai, the older sister, the second on Mai, the second sister, the third on Mii, the third sister, and the fourth on Mea, their robot maid. These four episodes are a little weak because of the "intro" being spread out over four episodes, but the whole series needs to be viewed to appreciate the emotional depth of the storyline. The story suffers from confusion over who the series is targeted to. It has major elements of a little girl "Magical Girl" series, but there is too much "fan service" for a young audience to appreciate. Then again, it has major elements of a hentai or lolicon series, but the "fan service" are too light hearted and innocent for the anime to fall into that category. In the end, it is the emotional depth of the series that rescues the work. Few other anime reach into such depths of feeling - only Grave of the Fireflies tugged at my heart strings harder. If you are expecting a kids anime, watch this first before showing it to your kids. If you are expecting a hentai series, you will be disappointed. And keep in mind that the whole series forms an entire story arc - if you only watch these first four episodes and give up on Popotan you will be missing a treat. The animation and voice acting are first rate and the stories are wonderful. I suspect that this will be a series that people will either love or hate, with no middle ground.

Pleasantly Surprised 14 May 2007
By P. Baltz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I bought this anime on a whim, and was pleasantly surprised to find Popotan to be much more than it appeared to be at first glance. Popotan has a great storyline! That is of course in addition to the fan-service and comedy. I have watched a lot of anime in my time, and honestly Popotan has by far the best story I have ever seen crammed into 12 short episodes. For that alone, I strongly reccomend Popotan for anyone who wants a fun and enjoyable Anime.

If that's not enough for you however, Popotan also has hilarious comedy in every episode and some steamy fan-service. Please note there is a lot of nudity in this show, but none of it is sexual. They managed to do a scene with the girls bathing in almost every episode!

Again, I strongly reccomend Popotan for everyone who can handle a little nudity, wonderful characters, brilliant storyline, good music and funny circumstances. Buy Popotan now!
