Magical Princess Holy Up!

akazukin cha chaSeries: Akazukin Cha Cha
Episodes: 74
Studio: Nihon Ad Systems
Genre: Shoujo

Akazukin Cha Cha (or Red Hood Cha Cha) is probably the one that got me really into anime. I'm not counting the mecha anime like Voltron and Voltes V of course (since I wasn't really aware that that's what they're called). For those who aren't aware, Akazukin Cha Cha is an old anime, shown back in 1995.

Akazukin Cha Cha has a simple plot: a magical girl named Cha Cha and her two friends Riiya, the wolf-boy, and Shiine, a wizard, saves the fictional world from harm and on the process, they learn about Cha Cha's past. They go to a magical school with kids (and teachers) of all sorts, including some classmates they made friends with: a mermaid, a ninja and a witch.

Ah! I almost forgot to tell you why Akazukin Cha Cha is a "magical girl anime": Cha Cha transforms into a princess-warrior named Magical Princess (very creative, I know...) using a pendant called Princess Medallion (another burst of creativity there!). The thing is, the Princess Medallion will only transform Cha Cha if it's used with Riiya's magical bracelet and Shiine's magical Ring. Oh and only after Cha Cha shouts:

"Let Love, Courage and Hope... Magical Princess Holy Up!!"

Anyway, it's a kiddie anime, more of comedy than romance. Oh and I also heard that the anime is a far cry from the manga. I wouldn't really know since I haven't read the manga yet (surprising!!). It's very lighthearted and you wouldn't have any trouble watching the series. Yep, all 74 episodes of them. Akazukin Cha Cha also has LOADS of interesting characters like Seravi, Dorothy, Barabaraman, Rascal...oh and the Principal!

Cha Cha's wacky antics and spells will keep you laughing because they usually start all the trouble at each episode. Never mind the cheesy line you just read up there that Cha Cha uses when she'd transform. Lol just watch it for the sheer fun of something that can make you laugh! Everybody needs to laugh once in a while XD
