Demashitta! Power Puff Girls Z! (Why, Japan, Why?)
Posted by dandycandy on July 13, 2006
I just finished watching the first episode of PowerPuff girls Z, and while I do like a good magical girl anime, I didn’t really like this anime. Well, I liked it, but I’m a huge fan of the original, and while I knew a lot of American aspects of the show would get lost in translation, I didn’t really catch the essence of the original series. I mean, Professor X already has a kid…and a dog! I mean, the whole point of creating the girls was because he was trying to create the perfect girls…and blah, blah, blah. These girls already exist. I guess the Japanese animators were trying to make something for Japanese audiences while making up their own twists on things, but since I am a hardcore fan of the original, I guess I’m just a bit jaded. But still, the series is pretty good if you really aren’t as far gone into the series as I am, or if you really like mindless Japanese mahou shoujo fun.
