I really loved this series, especially the finale. Strong Pretty Cure vibes from that ending.

I enjoyed Fairy Ranmaru a lot, it was always one of the highlights of my week. I think a lot more could be done with the characters but well I can’t imagine it pulled amazing ratings.

The lady stuck selling eel supplements was also giving away these weird pots. The pots show up again on the back of the manga magazine in episode seven and are called "Tubo-tan" and are from a ...puzzle game?


Those weird pots are octopus traps. "Tubo" is a mis-romanization of "tsubo" (Japanese does not use a "tu" phonetic.) The evil octopus that attacks Uruu in episode 3 emerges from a tsubo. BTW, "Tako to Ama" (Diving Girl and Octopus, more commonly known as Dream of a Fisherman's Wife) is also a Hokusai print. Cool

Tsubo-tan is a pun that parodies acupuncture point (tsubo) therapy (tan), https://www.amazon.co.jp/ツボ単/s?k=ツボ単
