A fun time, listen to the kids.

This show has lore, heart, morals, cleverly quick jokes, and the over-the-top abilities Pucca has are absurdly funny and superhero-like. The main characters are canonically children, so I wouldn’t overthink Pucca’s excitement for Garu, it’s lighthearted and sweet natured. I would go as far as to say the dedicated Garu and talented, capable Pucca are good role models. The episodes are fast-paced and pretty short, but they do what they can with the time they have— younger children may get lost from the quickness of it but it’s generally comprehensible. Cute art style, charming characters, media references here and there. Also, just as a plus the music for this show is noticeably really good. The show doesn’t take itself very seriously, nor should you.

Yikes

Pucca is just plain creepy and obsessive. At best it's annoying, at worst its downright disturbing. Even when I was younger I find it hard to watch, whenever it came on Disney channel I'd switch to cartoon network hoping to find smth better. I wouldn't mind having obsession, possessiveness or unhealthy/immature love explored in media but the show's writing is so flat and tries too hard to portray it as a good thing makes me feel pretty grossed out. If any adult actually find obsessive harassment in the name of "love" to be cute and adorable, I must say I'm impressed they've come this far in life with half a brain.
