''Potemayo'' is a TwelveEpisodeAnime, based on a {{Yonkoma}} manga, that takes the WidgetSeries approach to the ISO-standard anime high school love triangle: Girl meets boy, girl falls for boy, boy doesn't notice girl, boy finds titular [[{{Moe}} moe-blob]] in fridge, boy [[LineOfSightName names moe-blob after foodstuff]], moe-blob loves boy at first sight, boy treats it as pet and adopts it, moe-blob's antics give girl an 'in' with boy, girl has to build on this and contend with jealous moe-blob for boy's affections - boy doesn't notice. Then the first half of the first episode ends.

* RefugeInAudacity - [[strike:Some of]] The gags are far more adult than you'd expect, given the animation style. Like [[spoiler:Yasumi spending time in the bathroom after accidentally touching his sister's breast]]. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mk1T_sDnx00 Yeah, they went there.]]
** Uh, this Troper interpreted that scene as him serving out some kind of private penance [[spoiler: People go into the bathroom to be alone for more than two reasons]], as he was visibly disturbed/disgusted/ashamed of the incident.
*** If you think [[spoiler:him getting a {{Nosebleed}} when he imagines his sister naked]] is innocent as well, be my guest.
** Also note that he was in there in the first place, brushing his teeth. So maybe he just had a HeroicBSOD.

* SelectiveObliviousness - Sunao. Just... Sunao. When his love interest Mikan is being attacked by Potemayo, he interprets her flailing as a request for his bread.

* CrowningMomentOfAwesome - [[spoiler:''Mikan'', of all people, suddenly grows a backbone and scolds Sunao for his cold dismissal of his father]].



* EarWorm - The opening.



* {{HSQ}} - They throw some "WTF?" in OnceAnEpisode to cut the sweetness. E.g. Nene dragging one of ThoseTwoGuys around on a chain as her slave.



* HoYay - Between ThoseTwoGuys. Considering one of them references ''BrokebackMountain'' and says, "Isn't friendship between men beautiful?"...



* MagnificentBastard - Nene. The pecking order seems to be Nene > Guchuko > Everyone else > Mutou.



* MoeMoe - Potemayo is a [[SuperDeformed 1-foot-tall big-headed]] ClingyJealousGirl CuteMute with cat ears. Guchuko is a {{Tsundere}} GirlWithPsychoWeapon with NoSocialSkills. They are the same size and shape. They're called "moe-blobs" for a reason. Oh god, it's like watching five kittens try to fit into a shoe at the same time. [[spoiler:Guchiko's 'daughter']] in the final ending sequence is even ''[[UpToEleven cuter]]''. *dies*



* TastesLikeDiabetes - The whole series is so cute, sweet and charming that you may need extra fluoride supplements.
* TearJerker - Last episode. Goddammit, stop making me cry.
