    I smacked my head against the keyboard when I heard this news, but it turns out that they are officially making a Power Puff Girls Anime.

    At first it was thought to be an intricate April Fools Joke, but it turns out to be legit, complete with character art and posters.

    Anime News Network has the scoop on it. I'd copy and paste it onto here, but their site is down at the moment.

    There are two ways I can see this Anime going. 1. It's going to be more popular than the original series. or 2. It's going to bomb so badly that that they won't want to even try the original series again.

    Personally, I'm not a fan of PPG, even though the artist is from my hometown. In any case, check out the main page of ANN and have a read and look at the pictures, then let me hear your opinion on it.

    Fly or Flop?

    So, is it going to be an original anime, made by Japanese people, or a horrible, American anime rip-off?
    Anyway, I think PPG as an anime will be the one of the biggest flops (and an even bigger one if it's the rip-off I mentioned)in history of mankind!!! (OK, I exaggerated too much.)
    But it's likely to be a flop, as I can think how disgusting the girls, Mojo Jojo and the others will look like when "anime-lized".

    Actually. If they look anything like Bleedman's design. They don't look half bad. I don't like the PPG cartoon, but I do love Bleedman's PPG comic.

    Wow, just saw the posters. It actually doesn't look that bad. I wonder if they will keep the same VA's.

    That looked very nice. If it looks like that, keeps that attitude, it'll be very nice. If it's just a ripoff of PPG right now, it'll SUK ROYALLY.

    BTW, where did you find those posters, WPM?

    It's being done by Toei Animation, it's a true anime. I don't see anything on their website yet, but then again there haven't been any more detals released except for they're making it. I think it'll be pretty interesting.

    EDIT: Just saw that edit. Cool!

    wow, they actually made a test episode and made screencaps of it? I didn't realize it had gotten that far already. Honestly, it sounds like a hellish combination of Evangelion (The psychological part, not the mechas) FLCL and Azumanga Daioh, combined with the classic Sailor Scout outfits.

    Is it just me, or does Blossom look like a very happy Asuka?

    Um...how does it sound like any of those? o_O But it does look kinda like Sailor Moon... thats not a horrible thing though I suppose.

    Well that's somewhat suspected I suppose... Same studio (Toei Animation) did Sailor Moon.

    Wasn't the whole point of PPG to spoof anime in the first place? Seems like they are being hypocritical.

    But you know, if it comes to Cartoon Network, I'll give it a chance.

    But they got to get rid of the US-made animes. They don't get the idea of not matching lip movements to syllable sounds. Anime doesn't do that on the average, but US cartoons always do. Simply mismatching the speed of the opening and closing of the syllable sensive mouth doesn't achieve the same thing as what anime does. Know what I mean?

    No, I don't really get what you're trying to say either. =/

    And I'm pretty sure PPG wasn't a spoof of anime (if it was, it failed miserably). Duel Masters...now THERE is an anime spoof. :thumb:

    Spoof? I was always under the impression that it was more inspired by anime.

    um, Duel Masters is an Anime isn't it? Even though they completely forgot the entire concept of originality.

    I haven't watched much duel masters but one episode I remember them saying things like "They forgot to draw my eyes again! I can't see!" and basically playing off cliché anime plots and such, with the main character's faher appearing in ghost form and such. If its NOT a spoof of anime...then the show obviously sucks. =/
