Acctually... I'm pretty sure it was. In fact, I'm 99% sure, seeing as the review says it was an H-game.

And though I have completely mixed thoughts from what I've heard about this series now, I think that acctually, quite a few H-games-gone-clean-anime as of recent have acctually had a very suprisingly high amount of substance, many of them being very hard to tell they ever were H-games.

I'm guessing it's not the Osamu Tezuka, but the one who did the music for Shadow Skill.

That is so bizarre (about the h-game bit)! Shocked I let my girls watch it since the stories are quite harmless if you give a pass on nudity.

I've been reading an anime encyclopedia which refers to a major number of anime originating in some game or other.

Something so cute from an h-game? Go figure.

I think it is also a Loli H-game as well, your free to correct me if I am wrong.

Yeah. I suppose it would have to be given the characters are quite young. I had to look up "loli" in the urban dictionary. NOT my chioce for word of the day...

No kidding, then again in the DU(Denver Univeristy) anime club we have three guys and a girl that are in to it. Makes me sick to think about it. Somtimes I wonder how the Headmaster of the club can hand them. Then agin we do have 30 people.


I do find Popotan funny, and like the gags, but sometimes I do ask myself how I can watch it.

Well, I don't mind fanservice and the show is pretty cute (almost endearing) so I'll just keep that whole h-game thing in the back of my mind. I'll be sure to preview the final DVD before the girls get to watch, though.

That was my guess as well but the link on the review's page led to the Osamu Tezuka's biography. And they did refer to him as a god of manga. Go figure.

ANN's got something that auto-links certain names to default Encyclopedia entries. Actually look in the Encyclopedia for "Osamu Tezuka" and it'll return two separate entries (composer and creator) with parenthesis next to their names differentiating the two.
