Pita Ten is a comedy anime series that first aired on TV Osaka in 2002. The show is based on the manga of the same name written and illustrated by Koge-Donbo, and it revolves around the daily lives of two elementary school students, Kotarou Higuchi and his next-door neighbor, Misha.

Kotarou is a young boy who has lost his mother recently and is struggling to come to terms with her death. Misha is an angel who has been sent down to Earth to earn her angel wings. However, she often gets into trouble and can be quite clumsy. Despite her best intentions, she cannot seem to get anything right.

In the series, Kotarou and Misha form a friendship and spend their days playing together and getting into all sorts of adventures. They are accompanied by a cast of eccentric characters, including Shia, a demon who often comes to visit Misha and cause havoc, and Koboshi, another angel who is in love with Kotarou and jealous of his friendship with Misha.

One of the unique aspects of Pita Ten is the way the show blends elements of fantasy, comedy, and drama. While the show has plenty of humorous moments, it also delves into more serious themes such as death and loss. The characters are well-developed and have complex personalities, which adds depth to the humor and emotional moments.

The voice cast of Pita Ten is led by Miyuki Sawashiro, who voices Misha. Sawashiro is a veteran voice actress and has lent her voice to many popular anime series such as Sword Art Online and Durarara!!. Rie Kugimiya voices Shia, and her distinctive voice has become a staple in the anime industry. Mitsuki Saiga plays Koboshi, while Yumi Touma voices Nyaa, a cat who often assists Misha. Yukana plays Takashi, a boy who has a crush on Kotarou, and Kumai Motoko voices Kaoru, Kotarou's older sister who is also dealing with the loss of their mother. Sakura Nogawa rounds out the main cast as Megumi, another one of Kotarou's classmates.

The animation in Pita Ten is colorful and vibrant, and the character designs are charming and unique. The show features a mix of traditional animation and computer-generated graphics, which gives it a modern look while still maintaining a classic anime feel. The music in the series is quite catchy, with upbeat opening and closing themes that fit the show's tone perfectly.
