Kawamori Trolls in Thai Now

“Poo” by Neko Jump

Chuai Mad Noi” by Neko Jump

I especially like the OP song🙂

According to a Thai myth, dreaming of a snake is a sign that you’ll meet a partner soon.

Also, every year on the night of 15th day of 11th month in the Lao lunar calendar at the end of Vassa, an extraordinary phenomenon occurs in the area of the Mekong River stretching over 20 kilometres between Pak-Ngeum and Phonephisai districts in Nong Khai province, Thailand. Fireballs spew up from the river.

From then on, villagers on both sides of the river called this phenomenon the Naga fireballs. They believe that Nāga under Mekong River shoot the fireball into the air to celebrate the end of Vassa, because Nāga meditate during this time.

In 2000, Richard Freeman from the Centre for Fortean Zoology visited the area and talked with witnesses who claimed to have seen gigantic snakes far larger than any python. The witnesses included a police chief and the abbot of a Buddhist monastery. The general description was of a 60 foot serpent with black scales that had a greenish sheen. He concluded that the nāga legend was based on a real animal, possibly a giant madtsoiid snake. (Source)

  1. Both OP & ED are ridiculously cute with lots of fluffy animal outfits. But they definitely make me happier since I can’t stop smiling when I see those fluffy outfits. They’re cute in their own ways.😉


    • Yes, they are very cute ^_^


  2. gotta be careful with the reports. the province where these sightings occur depends a lot on tourism generated from nagas. anyway, the giant mekong catfish are totally real and they’re just as amazing!!

    My wife and I are absolutely shocked that they picked THIS band out of the whole of Thailand..but that’s another story.


    • I should visit to see those catfish then🙂

      I wonder if they did it because the style fits this anime. What would you recommend?


      • Yes, I guess it’s ok for a kid’s show. Basically, there are 2 record labels in Thailand: Grammy and RS. RS focuses on looks, Grammy on talent. Neko Jump is from RS.

        Wiki has a good list of Grammy stars:

        I like Endorphine myself, but most on that list are also quite talented in their different musical genres.


        • Oh, thank you for mentioning this!🙂 It sounds like they could have picked a better band, but, with all the bad economy these days, they just decided to go with a less expensive one😛

          GMM Grammy claims a 70% share of the Thai entertainment industry D:

          I found several clips by Endorphine on youtube and like them ^_^ The singer looks nice too🙂


          • RS actually holds its own well against the huge Grammy monster, by concentrating on one thing: sugary, teeny pop music!

            Da from Endorphine is doing solo work now too!


            • haha That’s a large audience🙂

              That’s nice, I should search more for her songs🙂
