An anime acid trip
Geoff | long beach CA | 08/05/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"puni puni poemy is so wacky so insane,so nonsensical and vulgar....its freakin genius!!!!! the plot doesnt make sense,theres no character development..but you know what?it works in puni punu poemy...think fooly cooly given a heavy amount of red bull and you have a great idea of what this little gem of an ova is like

p.s you might want to pause and take a break every 10 minutes.....yeah its that crazy.IT also has directors comentary on the disk, which is something id like to see more of in anime
(its also pretty funny when one of the voice actors says during one of the more raunchy scenes "my father who's a minister is definetely not gonna see this")"
Very Hilarious!!

"This is one DAMN good 2 episode anime. I really liked the twisted humor. Although it is sexualy oriented, I do not believe it is "meant" for boys only.
I am a girl and I loved this anime more than most anime out there...
If you do not appreciate twisted humor, then why bother watching anime in the first place?I think this anime is worth buying!! If you like crazy anime and you are over a certain age! I'd say 16 or so... You should definately get it!!! ^_^"

"Puni Puni Poemi is one of the most insane things I have ever seen in my entire life. It's also one of the funniest. Whereas a lot of Excel Saga's humour came from bizarre puns and obscure cultural references that didn't carry over too well into English, Poemi is focused mostly on sight gags, and the occasional one-liner that would be impossible to mess up. And, since the DVD will be a release from the fine folks at ADV, you can count on a pretty good dub - although the Japanese version is much funnier, if only for the hysterics of Poemi's seiyuu, Yumika Kobayashi.There's no plot, no character development and no real point to Poemi, and the only people who can say that it suffers because of this shouldn't be watching anime anyway. Poemi has no pretentions; it's not art or a great story. It's bizarre fun at its best. But keep it away from anyone under seventeen. They'll lock you up otherwise."

"For those avid fans of excel saga, this is the anime for you! Puni Puni is all based on a gag found in episode 17 (i think) of excel saga, a short parody of magical girl shows common in japan, especially amongst young girls. But make no mistake, this is NOT for children (its strongly suggests age 17+), for it is about the closest thing you can get to an actual hentai program. It is very like Excel Saga in that it stars a super hyper chick with a modest dream that never really comes true, and along the way (the whole 2 episodes) encounters wacky incidents. However, unlike Excel Saga, you do not need a thorough understanding of japanese culture. Just a sense of humor, thats all. You might even notice some familiar characters, especially Nabeshin, the director's alter ego, and his wife Kumi-Kumi (soup girl, remember?). Plus, you might be able to catch Koshi Rikdo and Menchi. And one character, Shii, bares a strong resemblence to Hyatt (blue hair, soft-speaker, well endowned). And for those who enjoy listenin to the dubbed version (if you're goin sub, i'd be best if you're a fast reader!) its fun to identify the voices of your favorite Excel characters!Well you could have skipped all that, because i'll just sum it up here: If you enjoy the antics of Excel Saga (or fan service *blush*) these two episodes are definitely worth your money! But be prepared for obscene jokes, uncomfortable situations (like the aliens and their... packages hangin down the whole show...), and questionable physical comedy. I thoroughly enjoyed this program, and i would buy anything else they dish out!Favorite Part: When Futaba and Poemi are sleeping head to head and they turn their heads to face each other.... the cracking noise made it priceless."
