Plot : Based on the American cartoon, "The Powerpuff Girls." Professor Utonium and his son Ken are studying the strange Chemical X. When a mochi cake falls into the formula, it changes into Chemical Z. Ken fires a ray of Chemical Z at a glacier in Tokyo Bay, however that causes strange black and white lights to scatter. The black lights turn its victims into monsters, with emphasis on a black light hitting a zoo monkey and transforming him into Mojo Jojo. The white lights, however, aim at three normal girls, Momoko, Miyako, and Kaoru. This gives them the power to transform into superheroes, the Powerpuff Girls Z!
Our Review : I was a big PPG fan while it aired back normally on CN. So hearing that my much loved animated series was getting an anime series was great news to me. However after watching the anime series I was greatly dissappointed at how much they downplayed it.
Story: 6 The storyline was fair to me. Changes of course had to be done, but the amount of changes were a little to much for my tastes.
The main dissapointment was just how weak they made the heroines powers. Having yoyo's and barrettes made PPG go from a age-less great show, to a kiddy show in my opinion.
Art : 10 If there was one thing I really loved about this series, was the art style. It looked like a anime, but still retained the overall PowerPuff look. Colors were bright and indeed colorful. It was something pleasent to see.
Sound: 5 Don't judge me too much by sound, this is my not my strongest review point. However the songs weren't too memorable or wouldn't be going in my album of anime songs.
Character: 7 One of the things that most dissappointed me asides from story. Half of the characters were so different in personailty and overall then to the original series that it annoyed me alot. The one who most bothered me was RowdyRuff Boys and Sedusa as for villains. Sedusa looked horrible in design, and the boys were changed completly.
Enjoyment: 6 I must admit at first I was excited, but as the episodes passed by, my excitement went diminishing.
Overall: 7 Overall this could have been a really great show with a very large following then it has, if only they would have made it as original as the actual original.
