Based on the plot summary and promotional art, I really was expecting this to be dumb, but the fact is, I like it a lot. It’s basically a mahou shoujo series, and while it has some dumb elements (there is seriously something called the “humpty lock”) it’s mostly just cute, shoujo fun.

The plot revolves around a girl named Hinamori Amu, who’s known for being “cool and spicy.” The fact is, she isn’t really and she doesn’t like this. She finds these eggs on her bed one day, one of which hatches and turns into her Guardian Character. With it’s power, she’s able to transform. Of course, there’s also this evil catboy who’s trying to steal her eggs. He has a Guardian Character too, as does practically everyone else in the show, according to the ED. I wonder if they all have different powers or something. Anyway, the best part was the end, when Hotori Tadase (Amu’s love interest) creates a huge blast of energy with his powers to fight the catboy, and they make a big explosion. Destruction and the mahou shoujo genre seem to go well together, if Pretty Cure Splash Star is a good indication of anything. Not that I expect this to have many crazy battles. Speaking of the catboy, I’m sure he’ll have his fangirls, but I think I like Tadase better. He’s cuter. I’m looking forward to seeing more of this.

haha your right about fangirls for ikuto, because i’m one of them!
i watched the first episode today and it seems good enough, but it doesn’t seem like they are sticking to the manga much. i hope i’m wrong o;
i think the humpty lock is stupid too, and there’s also a dumpty key haha. XD

@Lizzie- Oh, so it’s a lock? *hates trying to figure out Engrish* I shall edit.

I haven’t read the manga, so I don’t realy have any expectations as to how this should be done. Hmm…

Glad to see that you liked Shugo Chara! haha
and I am an Ikuto fangirl as well XD I think I’ve outgrown guys like Tadase now… but I also like him. He has this interesting side of him, which I believe will appear soon.

I like the changes they made in comparison to the manga so far, except for some Ikuto x Amu scenes. We’ll see how the next episode goes :)
