About[edit | edit source]

A tanuki with large testicles and a kitsune who are the familiars of Tamao Tamamura. They are four-hundred-year-old spirits who are unable to evolve into Seirei Class spirits because of their large egos. Until they met Matamune, they didn't wear anything to cover up their over-sized testicles; however, after getting beat up they both started wearing Mawashis. Both of them act like crappy old geezers who constantly forget their place as house spirits. They are, however, immensely afraid of Anna due to her intimidating attitude and how she can actually physically hurt them.

Ponchi and Conchi Funbari no Uta

Both of them are very perverted, threatening to strip in front of others or urinate on an opponent while holding them with Ponchi's oversized testicles. They appear to be constantly solid and can conceal themselves as statues. Several years after the Shaman Fight the two finally lost most of their ego though they retain some of their it and are now acting like normal ghosts. They have evolved somewhat and wear traditional Japanese kimonos. Conchi has grown long black hair and Ponchi smokes a pipe.[1]

Even if they are a nuisance to everyone, they haven't been sealed yet because they can be pretty useful too. Spying is their specialty and they are often used for reconnaissance. They are able to perform simple, though not very reliable, divination, cast easy curses, and harass the enemy as well.

Oversouls and Attacks[edit | edit source]

O.S. Cupid[edit | edit source]

O.S. Cupid

O.S. "Cupid" (O.S.キューピッド)

Description: Tamao integrates Conchi, her fox spirit, with her planchette. Once integrated, Conchi transforms the heart-shaped planchette into a bow and arrow, with the ability to guide the Conchi arrow wherever the shaman's heart desires.


  • Love Strike (ラブ・ストライク, "Rabu Sutoraiku"): Tamao shoots an arrow through her opponent.[2]

O.S. Angel[edit | edit source]

O.S. Angel

O.S. "Angel" (O.S.エンジェル)

Description: Tamao's second Over Soul is created by integrating Ponchi, her tanuki spirit, with her planchette. By holding the back of the planchette, she creates a large heart-shaped shield, sprouting the legs of Ponchi at the top of the heart.


  • The Thousands Tatami Mats Of The Hostile Racoon (たんたんたぬきの千畳敷, "Tantan Tanuki no Senjōsū"): This is a defensive move with offensive capabilities. By expanding the testicles into a heart shape, the Over Soul can envelop an opponent, cutting off any means of escape. The over-sized testicles can also be used to protect Tamao from a huge drop.

Anime/Manga Difference[edit | edit source]

In the anime series, they sometimes act like children when hurt, running to Tamao for a mother's comfort. In the English versions of the anime series is Ponchi's large testicles referred to as a large stomach instead.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • "Cupid"(キューピッド, "Kyūpiddo") is another name for the Kokkuri board, which uses a planchette because people tend to ask questions, particularly about love.
