Shugo Chara Episode 1 – ugh, too young and too sweet for my teeth.


I wish I could give a full length review of this, but my teeth have rotted as soon as I saw the first little genie/fairy/whatever strange little character hatched from the egg.

I mean, at least the protagonist isn’t your typical ditzy shojo anime heroine from the ’90s. She’s got a spunky attitude. But guess what? She’s pretends to be that way, and her clothing style, which the girls in the school hail as cool, is really because her mother buys strange clothing for her and her sister – what, she can’t decide for her own clothing style?

Then I realized that she’s only in elementary school, and I wonder why I bothered to watch this.

Oh, I didn’t know what the f^$# this was, because I saw its Chinese name and I was hoping for something closer to a parody.

Oh fuck, how goddamnned stupid could I get?

Just when I thought the concept couldn’t get any worse, the “Shin Morality Squad” from Kyoshiro appears.

They have ugly capes (at least the main girl realizes that), and they’re all bishojo and bishonen or rather, shouta and biyojo (for the latter reference see Gokujo Seitokai). Yeah right, I didn’t remember seeing anyone like that back in elementary school.

Then I remembered this is a show for kids.

Hashihime gave it a positive review, and you have to remember I’m critical and cynical (the worse combination for reviewing anything).

I’ll tell you what, though. I was bored and trying to change the channel every 30 seconds. But I was watching it on the PC.

No recommendation from me. Not even gonna follow it.

I'm a hardcore Anime Fan and I'm proud of it. I know so many things and I've acquired so much knowledge you wouldn't believe. But my love is anime. I've been drifting in this world for so long that I don't even know what an anchor means. I've seen so many shows that I've lost count. The only thing I'm sure of myself is that I care for the lowly and disenfranchised. I hate the rich and powerful and I love what I do, or what I can do. I like anime and I don't mind watching different types of shows. I have experience in different types of Japanese animation. I would be called an "expert" in a bizzaro world. One day, I'd like to start a revolution. I love the US, pizza, beer, sashimi, Chinese food, and steak. But I love freshly baked bread more than a well-aged steak. In reality, if I were born Japanese I'd be a real, hardcore Otaku. I love to love and I can hate strongly. I'm passionate in nature and I don't mind shedding tears.

  1. Okkk… I thought this anime certainly wasnt the best but wasnt bad . However it is a bore after a while of few eps…

  2. Wow, you’re not even gonna try it? Maybe you’re too matured for this…

    (btw, first time anyone’s actually disliked this series. very rare.)

    1. @ Cross + at least you didn’t flame me to death. Hmm, I’m like much older (30’s). So what age range would you recommend this show to? I’ve got some teenage cousins but I don’t know if they’d like it.
