Potemayo – Horny Horny…I mean Honey Honey and Oh my God! They killed Mudo! You bastards!

Nice death, Mudo. I can’t wait to see how many time he’s going to die.

What? Oh don’t react so strongly at the above sentence, or the phrase, “nice death”. He comes back up and horny about Potemayo-chan again doesn’t he? It’s an anime, and this is a post about anime, don’t take it so seriously.

I like the humor in this anime precisely because it never takes itself seriously. There’s no uber-intelligent humor that’s aimed snobbishly at high brow intellectuals who read only Shakespeare, the classics, the Bible, theological texts (no, I’m NOT talking about you, Mike), the philosophical text books, and well, add your custom-tailored categories for people you know.

You know who I’m talking about. People who thought Beavis and Butthead were just plain stupid even in its early days. When you said that was funny they would just look at you like you’re a f*beep*king retard that pick your nose all day and get Z’s for grades if it were possible to get Z’s. They only laugh at jokes that would take at least 10 minutes for the average human being to figure each out; they only laugh at jokes that refers to something in the King’s history in Great Britain or other types (again, add your own custom tailored categories).

Gee, it’s not like the rest of us DON’T use our brains enough when working on this shitty, boring and stupid planet, you know (go ahead and defend this plant verbally, you Sailor Soldiers or whichever giant robot that you imagine you’re piloting or whichever versions of the anime superhero you think you’re…Hahahaha, I’m the Ma-oh [Demon King] of Cynicism!). Ah hum. Anyway, on to my thoughts on Potemayo.

We have two moe tribbles that come out of our hero’s fridge. One is the cat-eared potemayo who wets herself being with our hero, the other one is Death…I mean Guchiko who shoots out Mikuru beamu…I mean death ray out of both her eyes, and also her head is adorn with two…cylindrical creatures that emotes like her.

My tone sounds like I hate these two, but I really don’t. It’s difficult to hate a little baby-like moe thing with cat ears that’s just so darned cute when it says “horny horny”, and gets so content and even wets herself when our hero picks it up…Wait, sorry, sarcasm again. I meant “Honey honey.” The darned thing is so cute that I can understand why Mudo, our hero’s classmate just want to have her. I haven’t seen ep 5 yet, but I loved the Valentine part back in ep.4 where Mudo imagines that he gives chocolate to Potemayo, and then…

In any case, that’s something that never grows old on me. Slapstick/physical/death humor that’s not serious and hyper super-duper-uber-supremely-utterly-academically intelligent. This was part of what anime used to be about – entertaining people. Sure it can get ridiculous, but hey, with the world we live in, I would think this kind of laugh out a loud humor that people forget right after watching is definitely needed. OK, I’ll stop preaching right this minute.

Guchiko is also a funny moe tribble, but unlike Potemayo who’s just carefree and relatively easy going, Guchiko is uptight. So uptight that when she first made her entrance, after slicing the door of the fridge open with her scythe (like I said, she’s Death! That’s what I meant when I said :”Nice (looking) Death!” Yeah…that’s it…), she uses a duct tape that she found somewhere to tape the two piece back together, and then she slices the front door in half, and then she tapes that back together, and then later, she does the same thing with a truffle.

Isn’t she cute? Here’s another character that I just can’t feel cynical about (oh no! I’m powerless against moe tribbles! The Ma-oh of Cynicism has been defeated!) .

If the show only has moe-tribbles it wouldn’t be that interesting. Classic slapstick humors like The Three Stooges are funny because the gang of funny folks act as a team. Shows with only moe as the selling point aren’t fun at all.

We have our hero, Moriyama with the deadpan, unimpressed-face humor. We have his admirer (why would a wuz factor like him has any admirers), Mikan. Then we have Mudo and his big friend. Oh and don’t forget the bird (not the one that you’re probably very much want to give to me, but really, that little rounded yellow bird). I’m skipping the rest of the people because they’re not that funny for me. But they do have their moments.

So anyway, let’s come back to Mudo. Let’s just count the times he gets killed (takes a deep breath):

OH MY GOD! THEY KILLED MUDO!

Next time: OH MY GOD! THEY KILLED MIKAN! YOU BASTARDS!

  1. What, you mean there are actually a person out there, who HAS functional brains AND like Beavis & Butthead ?
    You actually imply that not only retards ever watch MTV or what-other-shit-is-there ?

  2. Well, are you a super-duper-uber-hyper-supremely intelligent person who reads only Shakespeare, The Holy Bible, Textbooks, the classics and the like? Who only laugh at jokes that most people can understand only after 10 minutes plus? I’m joking of course.
    It sounds like you’re taking this one rather seriously, friend. Unless I’m reading you wrong. Well, in reality, MTV has become quite stupid, true. B&B was a very stupid show, true. However, I just personally feel like sometimes a thinking-not-applied humor is good for a not so serious laugh. If that doesn’t appeal to you, then fine. Some people simply don’t like silly entertainment. I can respect that. I just has a gripe with some people (namely, my own friends back in States) that simply wouldn’t laugh at anything simple. It was rather frustrating.
