PUCHIMAS! Petit [email protected]
One day, idols Ami & Mami Futami bring back a little something they found on the street to the 765Pro agency. That something was “Afuu” and “Yukipo”, teeny creatures that look almost exactly like Miki Hoshii and Yukiho Hagiwara, except petit and pudgy. Although they started with one, pretty soon a barrage of “Puchidols” start flowing into the office, and things get lively.
This 64-episode two-minute short series depicts the overly hyper daily life of The Idolmaster’s 765Pro idols and the mysterious creatures known as “Puchidols” who for equally mysterious reasons, resemble the idols.
