Bottle Fairy is an anime series about four fairies who discover the secrets of the world inside their little house. The humour depends on word-play and randomness as the Bottle Fairies misunderstand what exactly things are supposed to mean. Each episode takes place in a different month, when the fairies learn about what is to be done that month by japanese tradition and modern japanese practices - it is often hailed as being a good anime as it helps English people understand what's happening in anime and manga during certain festivals. The bottle fairies are often identified by the colours of their eyes.
The plot of the series is that the bottle fairies are attempting to learn many things about the world, so that they can become wise and turn into humans - this is a feat that they finally achieve in episode 12 (set in the twelth month, making the series last a whole year). However, as their wish to stay together is stronger than their wish to become human, they merge into one schizophrenic human. A thirteenth episode then shows the bottle fairies as a human (finally being separated), making it the typical length of a small anime series.
Kururu is the blue bottle fairy, she has pink hair. Kururu plays the part of the hyperactive character, and what she imagines is often very extreme. Kururu seems to take the lead of the group, and is considered to be the main character.
Sarara is the red bottle fairy, she has grey hair. She is the bushido character, so what she imagines tends to be fighting related, or concerned with samurai or ninjas.
Hororo is the green bottle fairy, she has black hair. She is a somewhat distant character, her imagination tends to be very slow - just like she is. Relate her to Osaka from Azumanga Daioh. It is often subtly hinted at that Hororo is a lesbian.
Chiriri is the yellow bottle fairy, she has yellow hair. She is the friendly and slightly conserved, her imaginations are often very surreal and she seems to be a little insane.
Oboro is a small feline toy with wings that was enchanted by the Bottle Fairies, and is the cute mascot animal of the series (as if they needed a cute mascot), Oboro is white. Oboro is a silent character, and has only one facial expression, the one that it was made with. It floats gently up and down when it is not being held or played with (usually it plays with Hororo), and its expression just screams "put me out of my misery".
Sensei, who is never given a real name, looks after the bottle fairies. He is represented by the colour brown. It is given that his character teaches them things about the world, but he doesn't really appear much in the series at all.
Tama is the (approximately 8 year old) next door neighbour of the Bottle Fairies and Sensei-san, she is represented by the colour purple. She wears crayons in her hair and often seems to be quite evil (she even has fangs), but is happy to help the Bottle Fairies. Unfortunately, her advice is often incorrect.
Hanana is a plant that appeared in only one episode, and was cared for by the Bottle Fairies. It was enchanted to be immortal and stay in bloom forever, but they removed the spell when they realised Hanana would want to have children and spread around other flowers. Hanana does not have a colour.
Human Bottle Fairy
The Human Bottle Fairy was never given an official name, but was called Onee-chan by some fans (and Uni-chan by others). She was schizophrenic, and had the personality traits of all the Bottle Fairies- her colour was orange.
