Poco's Udon World

Plot: When Sota Tawara returns home to Kagawa in the wake of his father's passing, he finds a small child curled up in a pot in his father's noodle shop. He quickly takes a liking to the boy and starts taking care of him. But what will he do when he finds out that his new charge is actually a shape-shifted tanuki? (B-)

Characters: A-

Artwork & Animation: B+

Voice Acting: A-

Music: B+

Objectionable Content: mild

Other: A quiet slice-of-life/fantasy series carried almost wholly by the way the characters are handled (and partly by the cuteness of Poco). While the plot is nothing to write home about, and the ending feels slightly rushed and anticlimactic, it has its emotional moments.

Overall Score: B+

Recommendation: 2.5/5
