Unko San – New Japanese anime about a lucky turd-shaped fairy.

August 15th, 2009 12:44pm by flipvine


Just read about a new Japanese anime show that’s about a lucky poop-shaped fairy.

“Unko-san,” a new anime series about a brown turd-shaped fairy with lots of luck, is fast becoming the rage among high school girls in western Japan. Short episodes of the anime are now showing in the Osaka area on Kansai TV’s “Otoemon” music program. The stories revolve around Unko-san — whose name is a play on the Japanese words for “luck” (un) and “crap” (unko) — and his quest for happiness on Lucky Island, which is populated by a host of other poo fairies.

I don’t know whether to laugh or cry.  Or maybe I can try to sell my own turds on eBay – you know – pass them off as characters from the show?  Here’s a link to the official site (I think that’s the official site – can’t read Japanese :( ) .. which looks like it offers poop-shaped bean-bags, pillows, and even poop-necklaces!  Also check out another blog post covering the show on

I propose the anime series gets brought into the US with an americanized name.. perhaps “4n4l san”?  Just think about it, this could be the next Pokemon.

This is a chart of the characters from what I can tell.  Bizzare!  If someone can read Japanese, please do translate :-D


Here’s a subtitled episode.  Total nonsense, and I think my favorite part by far is where out of nowhere somebody screams “oh no, a raging bull” (and the bull then plows through a crowd of poop fairies).  Total bull shit:
