  • Solid start to one of the most underrated animes ever.

    8.0
    A man who looks like a boy named Photon is set off to find a girl named Aun, who stole the village's sacred object--which is a simple marker that you can buy at the convenience store--in order to satisfy her dearest Lamond that she's prepared to suck up to. In an unfortunate encounter with some outsiders, Photon quickly catches up to her, and tries bringing her back to the village. She sneaks out after Photon slumbers, and continues onto her journey of love. Photon, after waking up, chases after her once again, but was sent plumbing into the depths of the earths, where he finds a girl named Keyne Acqua; a woman unbeknown to him that he made his wife just by writing idiot on her forehead. What's also ignorant of his mind processing is the evil Papachurino, who's in hot pursuit of Keyne for whatever sinister reason he has planned.



    To think this is the second least funniest episode in this anime, and it's still this good. This episode really throws you into the fire, introducing all of these new concepts and characters without really explaining them well. In fact, Aho, the central energy source within this anime, isn't really explained until the very last episode. It was still funny. Much of the humour is those small little perky things that happen too quickly. What makes Photon's comedy such a charm is that these perky little humourous moments occur one after another to give you a consistent laugh. The whole Papachurino being naked scene wasn't funny because Papachurino was naked. It was all the little things that were happening in unison together, like the manner in which Papachurino unleashed his fury on the pochi's by knocking them around the room in unique and comical ways. All these little things is what ultimately delivers the biggest laugh.moreless

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • "Baka" in Japanese means idiot.

    • Aun's special ability of Aho is to freeze time. Her scream emits this special power, causing the entire radius to freeze with it. Or she could concentrate it all in one shot, and cause whatever object it hits to freeze in time momentarily.

    • Having the same crest on your forehead as your husband or wife signifies the marriage between the two, which was why Keyne was angsty when her and Photon shared "Idiot" on their foreheads.

  • QUOTES (1)

  • NOTES (1)

    • Aho isn't really anything specific. It's an energy source that can be used for a wide range of things. Papachurino used it to go through walls and allow himself to float. Keyne showed it can also be used as blasts to harm whatever target she wants to hit.
