An art style alternative to the tall, skinny design that is so common in bishoujo. Puni Plush avoids straight lines, emphasizing a character's curves, especially the face and hips, that can give to the cast an overall short, young look. Most common in romantic or slice-of-life anime, but sometimes used in less obvious ways. Often leads to characters that are Older Than They Look.
Puni Plush examples:
Lucky Star, Hidamari Sketch, Kanamemo, Potemayo, Pani Poni Dash, Manabi Straight, Ichigo Mashimaro, K-On.
