"Popotan is frustratingly dopey and indulgent. "
Anime Jump! (Mike Toole) - 1 1/2 stars (out of 5)

Anime on DVD

"With its weird blend of sugary sentiments, comical bits, and excessive fan service, Popotan gives a whole new dimension to the term fluff. "

DVD Talk

Vol. 1 - "Those watching this series chiefly for the voyeuristic pleasure of seeing up a girl's skirt may be disappointed by the sweetness of the sentiment in each story, which seems to minimize the naughtiness of their nakedness."
DVD Verdict (Sandra Dozier) - 80 (out of 100)

"I found myself wishing those dandelions would take Ai, Mai, and Mii away. At least then there would be a quick end to this doinky anime."
T.H.E.M. Anime Reviews (Jennifer B) - 1 star (out of 5)
