Ok so why does no one talk about this amazing series? I just finished it and the ending was amazing. I mean I’m not a fan of the magical girl genre, I tend to avoid titles that can fall into that genre actually, but this is such a wonderful and powerful show you can’t help but love it. Why hasn’t anyone watched this? You’ll laugh with the characters, you’ll enjoy their happyness and fun times, you’ll get scared, angered, and upset. And you will be very sad along with the characters as well. Instead of focusing on one or two emotions, this series displays all different types of emotions, and none of it feels tacky or cheesey. It’s funny, it’s exciting, and it’s downright sad at times. But it’s a great series that really covers some ground. Ok so the first few episodes may be a little episodic, and too sweet and cute for some, but I thought they were great as well. And the later episodes are some of the best in the bunch, and none of the episodes could be called filler as they are all important. Perhaps not a very complex or original series, but it’s still very moving and all around well done. And all I need is a powerful story sometimes, and this fits the bill. Each and every character was perfect, and all the major characters grow and change throughout the series. And there’s not a character I disliked in the bunch. That’s very rare for me, I usually hate on at least a few characters. But in thsi anime I liked each and every one of them. Overall it’s an uplifting series, that may be too girly for some, but I think many people here would enjoy it. So go out and buy it on DVD already!
The dub was done from Monster Island and it is perhaps my favorite dub to come out of that studio, although Nadia was really good as well. I haven’t heard enough of Getbackers to really judge it, but this is a hard title to beat. Because the dub is perfect. Sure it does not require any tough acting or anything like that, but it’s all very well done. And it’s very fresh sounding. A bunch of people you’ve probally never heard of are in this, and they all do an outstanding job! Also David Jones yet again impresses me. He’s great! Nadia, Getbackers, and Yucie. The man should have been cast in more shows…he’s a good actor. Shoutouts to Rachel Rivera as the lead, Monika Bustamante as Cocoloo the spirit world princess, Lee Eddy as Beth the conflicted fairy world princess, and Kelley Huston as Glenda the Demon World princess. These actors are up to par with the veterens in Houston, New York, L.A., or Vancouver. Really it’s a shame we couldn’t have heard more from the folks at Austin then we did. These guys need to move to houston or something so we can hear more from them again. What an overlooked city in regards to anime dubs.
Also I feel sad that although Princess Tutu at least get’s mentioned now and then, this is totally ignored. I would rate this even higher then Tutu, although that’s a great series as well. Critics are still singing praise for Tutu but this has been forgetton already? For shame! Both this and Tutu need to be watched, even by those who dislike the genre.
