This is the sequel of ‘Fushigiboshi no Futago Hime’ (without the Gyu) and I mistook the earlier torrents for this one, *doh*.
Anyway, Gyu nestles in snuggly at place one and a half…erm…sorry! If I had included this in the original list I would have been tempted at placing it a little lower down say at 4 or 5. However, it does seem to be a great example of its type, which seems to be bright, rainbow, cute, magical craziness aimed at little girls, and the AMOUNT of merchandise for this anime, well…see for yourself!
They even have colour me in pictures, look!
I’m not really taken with the character artwork, this anime verges on the epitome of things that make me nauseous, no wait, I do feel sick, but it might just have been the amount of Pimms I drank at Christmas dinner *hick*…that said, I think I might have loved this when I was about 5!…or not, since i was the girl with teddies not dolls, Superted, Bananaman and Inspector Gadget were more my thing. Although I had a few Polly Pockets (anyone remember them?) and the plastic figures kinda make me feel nostalgic for those *^_^* Aaaaanyway, for reviews with screenshots aplenty of over 30 of the episodes see Matthew’s blog.
Now I will fiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiinally bring you piccies and links of what I think is the special number 1 anime that we missed out on that looks AWESOME…
(It might not get posted for another 24 hours if I get roped into another round of knights, we just got remote control knights on horseback with little lances ~thank you Marks and Spencer I love youuuuuu~ – 2 of them, that you drive around the floor, trying to knock the other knight off, ‘ROAD RAGE’…or maybe ‘HORSE RAGE’!)
