Finished series: Pita-Ten & Tiny Snow Fairy Sugar specials

We finished watching Pita Ten, a 26 episode series by Broccoli.
Central to the series is Kotaro. He gets a new neighbour, Misha, who turns out to be an apprentice angel! Misha starts tagging along with Kotaro and causing all sorts of mischief. Kotaro's friends (Koboshi and Ten-chan) get dragged along for the ride. When the Mitarai family transfers to their school and the really cute apprentice demon Shia starts living with Misha, the chaos is complete.

Bad points:
- Hiroshi and his sister Kaoru (the Mitarai family). They are sooo annoying! (Though occasionally amusing...)
- The repetitiveness of some of the episode plots. Kotaro gets a problem, Misha 'fixes' it for him, creating more problems, Ten-chan and Koboshi help him to fix it.

Good points:
- Character designs are nice. I especially liked Koboshi-chan, with her cat-ears!
- Overall cuteness.
- Some deep plots about friendship intermingled with the inane chaos.
- Great ending.

If you liked Tiny Snow Fairy Sugar, you'll definately enjoy this one. I'll give it a 7.

Speaking of which, we also watched the two Tiny Snow Fairy Sugar special episodes. This is also a Broccoli series, and the character designs are really like Pita-Ten's (which isn't a bad thing, mind you).
The two special episodes are a flash-back to Saga's school play. It is set four years after the series concluded. We get to see a little bit of grown-up Saga, Greta and Kanon, which is nice. The specials combine to make a double-length episode with a single story. Recommended if you can stomach the cuteness of the original series.

(Fifth post today! I don't know what has gotten into me...)
(Also, does anyone read these posts? Does anyone care about what anime we watched?)
