Good-better-bad Series

shugo chara is good but if oyu watch shugo chara doki it gets even better with morer events and battles are more intense but after that series its sugo chara party which is very dissapointing, it got very cheesy and the episodes are shorter since they had cosplay people host the show and a mini aventure about the shugo chara's which seems really cheesy.  At first, it seemed as if the plot the anime was following was going to catch up with she manga story line soon, but that won't be happening. Similar to the story arc with Lulu, another anime-original character has been introduced: Rikka, a bubbly second-grader who can see Shugo Charas and understand X Eggs and X Charas. It's original, but throws the anime off track from the plot line most fans of the series want.



To add to this, there's a new anime within the anime: Shugo Chara! Pucchi Puchi. It's a cheesy attempt to make the series more appealing to younger fans, and thus, there isn't much the older fans, like me and probably the majority of you reading this, will find interesting about it. Unless you want to watch an over-done mini-anime that focuses on the Shugo Charas, I suggest you skip the first nine minutes of each episode.



I have nothing against the art. It's fairly standard shoujo anime art, just like the art from Shugo Chara! and Shugo Chara! Doki.



As for the music, things begin to get strange. Now there are two openings. Yeah, you read that right: TWO OPENINGS. The first opening, which comes before the Pucchi Puchi segment, is a bit odd. The second is by far better. It's not as cutesy as the previous Shugo Chara! Doki openings, and definetly not another attempt to draw in younger fans like the Pucchi Puchi opening. The end song, sung by Buono!, is reasonable.



As I mentioned before, an anime-original character, also reffered to as a filler character, has been introduced in order to make up for the sudden advance in plot in the previous ten or so episodes. Just because Rikka is a filler girl doesn't mean she isn't well developed. I can already tell that this story arc will be interesting, and that Rikka isn't just a character that will be left undeveloped.



One of the most annoying things was the three Shugo Chara Egg! members popping up throught the episode. In between the Pucchi Puchi segment and the anime itself, and before and after the entire episode. It's a lot more fun to mock them than to take them seriously. The epsode itself wasn't so bad.
