Tee hee hee. Just finished this little heartwarming series.
It’s been quite a while since I watched this types of show, so I really took my time to finish this. Quite enjoyable and kinda helped me get over the rough times I’m experiencing now.
All the characters are really likable, even Misha-san with her devilish troublemaker thing going on. Shia is the usual perfect mother figure-esque type, with her usually providing the rest with food ( I doubt they’ll survive long without her *bentos* :p). Koboshi-chan is also quite cute too, with her playing the *tsunderekko* of the series, while both Kotaro-kun and Ten-chan are really quite great male characters, heck, I’ve said it before that not even half the people on the Bounty List will be able to match up to them, really. In fact, I’d gladly support them for a future harem master role :P.
The story is basically comedy, with a nice touching ending written in. I was gladly enjoying the antics of the gang, especially the *onsen* episode where poor Kotaro-kun got…. “washed” by Misha-san. Other nice parts are the episodes where Koboshi takes the lead, the hospital ones and the ending episodes as well :). One thing a bit lacking was character development, but it’s pretty fine for a show like Pita Ten.
As for art, it’s quite simple, yet elegant, and somehow old-school in a way, which adds to the enjoyment.Quality was quite consistant throughout, without much deviation, working out to be pretty good.
As for other factors, *seiyuu* power was very much obvious in this series, with Yukari Tamura (Nanoha, Tomari) playing Misha-san pretty well, emphasising on her uniquely nasal voice and also with the “tee hee hee” and “-su” that is Misha’s trademark and is quite stuck in my head. Rie Kugimiya (Shana, Alphonse Elric) plays Koboshi-chan nicely, Yukana (Tessa) fits in well with Shia-chan, and other high-power *seiyuu’s* in other roles, making it a joy to watch.
As for music, Pita Ten has quite a nice soundtrack that fits in perfectly, but does not really take the spotlight away from the show. The OP, sung by Funta, and ED, sung by Miyuki Sawashiro, are quite nice and fits well with the series too.
Overall, a nice show to watch, with a lot of enjoyable factors to it. Pita Ten earns a 8/10 from me.
– Really likable characters.
– Great, clean comedy, suitable for all ages to watch, can be quite a good series to introduce anime.
– Nicely done ending.
– *Seiyuu* power!! Look at all the great names in the cast list ;).
-Not really much, just lacking in the character development parts a bit.
