Hey everybody, I've noticed a lot of review topics & thought that I would make one as well. I'll start with the show that brought us all together... That's right. I'm reviewing...
HI HI PUFFY AMIYUMI (yay!)http://images.businessweek.com/ss/05/06/an...ffy_amiyumi.jpg
I originally thought this show seemed like a stupid girly show. But one fateful day, I was SO bored. Seriously, there was NOTHING to do. (Must be divine intervention) I flipped through the channels & saw this show on. I thought nothing more then "mabye I'll make fun of this for a while." I was very surprised. This show was actually good. Very good in fact. So good, I kept coming back whenever it came on, wanting to see more & more of it, till I got hooked in. Then I found the HHPAY fourms & the rest is history.
END OF BACKSTORY
This show is based on two real musicians Ami & Yumi... Okay, I'm at SHHPAYD, do I honestly need to explain it? The animation style was quite unique, I usually don't care if something is CGI or 2-D. I either like a show or not, regardless of HOW it's animated. This may be the only time I ever point out the animation in a show. Now THAT'S saying something.
What really makes this show appealing are the characters. Ami is just simply adorable & is always upbeat & positive. What makes Ami special though, is that despite her character trait as the "happy lala" type, Ami never gets annoying. She's always just adorable, regardless of situation.
And Yumi is a perfect contrast to Ami, although they still have enough in common to get along. Yumi's the sarcastic member of this dynamic duo & maintains a cool attitude throughout the series. What I like most about Yumi is how much of a tomboy she is, but not enough so to get annoying. I've always liked the ladies with attitude, (Yumi & Renamon also have blue eyes, coincidence?) so that played a big factor as to why I like Yumi so much. She's often the funny one of the group, not to say that Ami dosen't have her moments either. I don't have Yumi in my username for nothing.
And Kaz, the manager of the band, is a cheapskate. But despite that, even Kaz is pretty likeable. I think he's SOOO much better then Mr.Krabs of recent Spongebob episodes, because despite dragging Ami & Yumi into things, he does appreciate them. When even the "selfish" character is likeable, you know you have goo characters.
The episode plots are actually pretty interesting. Even if ideas like secret agents or doing something for somebody who gets hurt were done already, HHPAY has a unique style to it that makes it funny & entertaining & the episodes starring their cats & Kaz remind me so much of Tom & Jerry cartoons.
But tragedy struck... In Julie AmiYumi, after Julie's evil plan is foiled, she swears vengence... CANCELLED! Cartoon Network had the stupid idea to cancel this show. Cancelling this show spelled the end for CN's ratings as they have never put on a good show since.
When it is all said & done, HHPAY was one of the best shows I've ever seen & easily gets a perfect 5 out of 5. Even when CN's other shows sucked, HHPAY was there to keep me from noticing. Now that it's gone, CN's terrible shows have been exposed & their ratings are down the toilet. But HHPAY will live on in all our hearts & our fanfics.
- Fantastic characters, all were likeable
- A unique animation style
- Interesting stories with unique twists
-Was stuck on an incompotent channel.
