  • Is a squash-humanoid of the genus cucurbita, his super power is to able to cough up coins for vending machines at will.

  • Very mobile for a squash, Chonbo is often seen somersaulting and tumbling.

Blog info:
Beneath every blog entry there are labels. I label every episode with its specifics, like which characters are in or if it contains severe violence (like the swordfight in episode 7). Just click a label if you want to see all the episodes with your favourite character. I've decided not to include Kure Kure Takora and Chonbo as labels, since they participate in every episode anyway.

Episode 15

Kure Kure are running with baskets to the vending machine when they stop by at Monro, who is sad since noone brings her any snacks. They promise to get her some too! When they arrive at the machine Biragon and Debura is already there. But when it's Kure Kure's turn Monro calls so he has to step out of the line and answer her call. She whines about not getting any and Kure Kure gets kind of frustrated since every time she calls, he has to step out of the line. Finally when Monro calls, she asks where her Takoyaki (small dumplings with octopus!!) is and thats when Kure Kure finally flips.
