Dedicated to bringing you the joy of PopoloCrois.

UPDATE!! 2 / 23 / 04
PopoloCrois (2003) episode 6 has been subbed and torrented! Unfortunately, Rayeart seems to have vanished off the face of the Earth, and he took his BitTorrent tracker with him... so the torrent for this episode is most readily available here.

Also, I've begun accepting
PayPal donations
since I'm still out-of-work, and the more money people send me, the more time I can spend subbing PopoloCrois instead of looking for a job. (: I don't currently know how to add a PayPal link to my webpage, but if you want to send me any money between now and the time I figure it out, just use

as the email address. (:

Welcome to the Pakapuka Anime homepage. It's not especially fancy or anything, but it serves its purpose: to let you dedicated PopoloCrois fans know what's available out there on BitTorrent (or what's BEEN available, at any rate), and fill you in on what's coming next, and how much progress I've made on it.

I say "I" because, unlike other anime teams, I am a team of one. My name is Thomas Lipschultz, though I'm known online almost universally as Wyrdwad. I've been a huge fan of the PopoloCrois series ever since I had a fansub tape of episodes 1-4 of the original 1998 anime sent to me, back in the year 2000. I was a bit hesitant to accept the unusual art style at first, but something about the characters really charmed me, and when I found an eBay auction for the PlayStation game "PopoloCrois Monogatari II", I jumped at the chance to bid on it... and won. And when I got it, my obsession officially began, as anyone else from my house at college will gladly confirm. (:

Recently, I've become more and more saddened to find that the PopoloCrois series, ever-flourishing in Japan, is still virtually unknown in this country. And when I started watching the raw AVIs of the new 2003 anime series, I knew I had to do something about that... so I taught myself how to subtitle anime, and set about fansubbing PopoloCrois all by myself. (:

Though only a few episodes have been subbed so far, I fully intend to subtitle every single piece of animated PopoloCrois in existence, from the new anime series to Tamori Yousuke's little-known 1993 pilot episode. This will take time, of course... but rest assured, it's a labor of love, and if I have the time, I'll gladly spend it on this.

Anyway, that's the basic history behind Pakapuka Anime. But why, if I'm one person, have I chosen to call myself "Pakapuka Anime"? Well... keep watching the show. You'll eventually figure it out. (:

Most recent subs: 2/23/04 - 2003 TV series, episode 6.
Next sub planned: 2003 TV series, episode 7.
