Fans of Synecdoche's manga Plus-Sized Elf can look forward to its anime adaptation, which will be available in three different versions, each varying in the level of censorship. This unique approach allows viewers to choose the experience that best suits their preferences.

Broadcast Schedule

  • Regular Version: Airing on July 6
  • Potepote Version: Airing on AT-X on July 8
  • Potepote Wick Version: Streaming on AnimeFesta starting July 19

The official website remains vague about the specifics of each version. The term "Potepote" translates to "fat," suggesting the uncensored versions might include more explicit content, particularly scenes featuring nudity and intimate shots.
