Demashitaa! Powerpuff Girls Z 出ましたっ!パワパフガールズZ 1:Arrival Of The Girls/Birth Of The Girls

Part 1: The Powerpuff Girls Z, Hyper Blossom, Rolling Bubbles and Powered Buttercup fight a monkey monster that had locked a bunch of school children in a cage and eaten all their candy. Things look bad when the girls lose their stamina, but it’s nothing a spot of ice cream can’t fix…

Part 2: Just where did these girls come from? In the lab of Professor Utonium a pet robot dog Peach accidentally drops a daifuku (sweet cake) into the tub of chemical X, transforming it into a better, stronger chemical Z. Meanwhile, disaster strikes around the world as the weather hits extremes. Prof. Utonium’s son Ken takes a risk and fires chemical Z…it disperses into 4 bright lights and one black, 3 of the bright lights hit the school girls, one hits the *spoiler* dog Peach, and the dark one heads to the zoo creating the monkey monster seen in the previous episode.
Intro: ‘Kibou no kakera’ by Nana Kitade. Quite rocky but annoying warbly voice. Loads of visuals including parts of the girls transformation and a group shot of the characters. The evil woman with the black hair, and the pink furry thing look cool:

Review:

Hyper Blossom! The eye design is really weird, the girls look like zombies sometimes!

Blossom fights with yoyos and she just loves the boys…all of them!

Rolling Bubbles! Bubbles fights with…well, guess. She’s my favourite character, shame she doesn’t have dark hair, It’d be fun to cosplay her, going round blowing bubbles randomly at people. I want giant bubbles! :)

Zombie mode, amazing animation quality. ^_^

Powered Buttercup! Buttercup fights with a big hammer. She’s a skateboarding tomboy, shame she’s not very pretty.

Together they are, Powerpuff Z! When they stop eating…

Sorry guys but this is about as much fan service as you’re gonna get!

From left to right: Ken, Peach and Professor Utonium. Ken wins the award for ugliest character design so far (and considering the bad guy’s a monkey that’s saying a lot). If he says “Papa, I mean Professor Utonium”, one more time, aaargh!

Peach is quite cute I guess, would have prefered a cat robot. “Powerpuff Bow WOW!”


Oh come on! It’d be a million times better if the world was full of penguins!

I enjoyed the bouncy electro music when they’re fighting (yeah, I know, I’m sorry!). There are enough zany moments to stop it being a straight forward super girls defeat monster thing (stopping to eat ice cream, signing autographs, teaching a monkey how to eat a cream cracker). I like the random secretary character Miss Bellum, we never see her face, perhaps she has talking boobs? *_*
End music: ‘Mayonaka no DOOR’ by Liu i Fei. Really nothing special, a few cute pics.

I’ve never watched Powerpuff Girls before, so I can’t say I’m bothered about the lack of father relationship between the professor and the girls, or their new found hands, but one thing’s for sure, this certainly wasn’t as bad as I was expecting it to be! Just a shame I can’t stand the artwork.

  1. “I like the random secretary character Miss Bellum, we never see her face, perhaps she has talking boobs? *_*”

    She doesn’t have a face in the original cartoons either, perhaps that explains why she doesn’t have one here either. Continuity I guess. (And one less character design to worry about and zombie-fy later!

  2. The “monkey monster” would be Mojo Jojo, only the most prominent villain-character from the original series (and, similar to the origin here, also created by Professor Utonium).

    Most of the characters in the group shot during the intro have appeared in the original series. For example: Fuzzy Lumpkins (front left), Him (back, second from left), Sedusa (back, third from left), Mojo Jojo (back, giving “V for Victory” sign), the Gangreen Gang (front, first three on the right), and Princess Morbucks (top right, inset). I don’t recognize the one-eyed monster in the back or the two characters standing next to the girls, though.

  3. I once theorised that the Powerpuff Girls were related to the Triforce of “the Legend of Zelda”, especially with Ocarina of Time saying it came from 3 golden godesses. Maybe Nintendo could finally tie those two franchises together somehow. Also, another idea, they could say this takes place 50 or 100 years after the original PPG’s, and that they’re following in their footsteps, carying the tradition of the young guardians, and all the names being one big serendipitous coincidence.

  4. The one-eyed monster in the back is Billy, of the Gangreen Gang. Flanking the three girls are two of the Rowdyruff Boys.

  5. Aaaaaghhh! I remember seeing an image of the Japanese PPG years a go! I totally forgot about it! I must watch an episode! Any recommendations?! Waargh?!

  6. Hi !! I’m Vanessa And I live in Portugal .. I have 13 years old ..
    I like the PowerPuff Girl very much .. But in portugal the show is very old .. lol
    In portgal porgram of the PowerPuff girls they are only 7 or 8 years .. I like this cartoon’s !!!
    Kiss

  7. “two characters standing next to the girls, though”
    There are actually three. The Butch Boys. Twins to the Powderpuff girls…

  8. nice change in the design of the characters form the original serie to the anime, the only thing I dislike (even though I haven’t see an entire episode) is the name “Powerpuff girls Z” as long as we dont see the new super saiyan girl it’s cool, and since the girls have new hands in this serie who knows, maybe they will have boobs in “Powerpuff girls GT”

  9. I think Bubbles is the Best out of the Powerpuff Girls Z!

    I even named my E-mail Adress after her.

    Plus i just Luv Peach!

  14. Ur right just a stranger in the pic is Brick behind Blossom and Boomer and Butch r on the sides of Buttercup and Bubbles

  15. Hey, shrug. Those three figures you convieniently didn’t recognize are the Rowdyruff Boys Z. If you’ve seen the original, you’ll know that those three are Brick, the leader in red, Boomer, the “cute” one in blue (everybody thinks hes cute not just me), and Butch, the tough one in green.

  16. Omg I love buttercup and blossom. Buttercup because she is so awesome and cute! Blossom because she is smart and outgoing!
