Well, I've been ignoring LJ a lot lately, and checking this it seems to be picking up, so I figured I'd contribute.

Recently, I've been watching Potemayo.
I am in love with it, even though it makes quite little sense.
Basic story is that this boy, Sunao, how comes to find a girl/creature thing named Potemayo in his fridge that immediately becomes attached to him, and essentially the antics that they get into at their home or at school, or sometimes in places like a grocery store, etc.
It's all based on a 4 panel manga, though I haven't read that to judge how true they are to the style or anything.
It's a short series, only 12 episodes and a couple specials, so you could easily watch it all in one day if you've got the free time.

Anyone else watch this, if so, what'd you think?

We watched this anime at my college anime club 2 semesters ago. It's definitely not an anime everybody is going to like. I liked it because it's cute and colorful. I also like comedies that make little sense and just involves randomness. If that's your kind of thing, you might like it. But I think the majority may not enjoy it too much. But I LOVED it. ♥

Oh yes, this certainly isn't for everyone.

They style kind of reminded me of Azumanga Daioh and Lucky Star, though I'd say Potemayo is a bit farther out in the "weird" scale.

If people like the two I just mentioned, I'd say check out the first episode, but if you didn't like those, then just go ahead and steer clear of Potemayo.

Oh yes, I definitely agree with your recommendations.

Anybodywho reads these comments should note that while the anime is definitely on the more 'weird' end of the scale, the humor is not rude or crass at all. Just a little bit odd at times. A lot of times you'll be going "okay, what the heck just happened", but if extremely random things, extremely cute things, and weird humor don't bother you, I'd definitely say to give the first episode a try. I think the anime is absolutely hilarious.
