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:
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.
