Shugo Chara is a well known anime. At least, I am forced to believe that since it is one of the only animes available in the crunchyroll app on my iPad.
Basically, little girls and little boys make wishes to change their characters and the little eggs in their hearts come out and hatch to reveal cutesy little would-be-selves. The whole thing is about their adventures where they purify X eggs and look for the embryo and battle against this evil company EASTER.
Sounds like crap, doesn’t it?
If you’re a Mahou Shoujo lover like me, interested in love triangles, and you don’t mind a few hundred fillers, then this is the anime for you. Okay, so Shugo Chara is practically filler central and barely follows the plot of the manga (which was AWESOME, love the ending), but there’s a reason why I scream whenever I see Ikuto or Utau appear onscreen.
Here are some great comments on My Anime List!
The Mahou Shoujo genre is all too often populated with casts of sweet, brightly animated lolis who are surrounded by perverted adults and magical animals. Couple this together with overly long and usually indecent (given the ages of the characters) transformation scenes and stupid inane plots that make watching children’s programming with your kids seem smart by comparison. Shugo Chara! takes those stereotypes and blows them up completely, and leaves us with one of the most wonderful and enjoyable anime experiences ever. – Skadi
Overall, Shugo Chara! is a good anime to watch. It’s been compared to great anime like CardCaptor Sakura, and while I wouldn’t go that far, it is definitely the best Mahou Shoujo anime in a while and it does have the appeal to span multiple ages (I’ve encountered fans from ages 10-30). So, if you’re a fan of mahou shoujo, or just shoujo in general, you really can’t miss Shugo Chara! (though, I will just leave off mentioning the fillers to warn any impatient viewers). – FuyuMaiden
I couldn’t have said it any better. Card Captor Sakura really is a better anime, because it sticks to the manga and has little to no fillers. Shugo Chara could’ve been done a lot better, but since the manga itself was awesome, the guys who produced Shugo Chara couldn’t ruin it as much as they wanted to.
BUT HOW COULD THEYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY???????????????? A PERFECTLY GOOD COUPLE!!!!!!!!!!! I CAN’T BELIEVE THEY LET TADAMU WINNNNNNNNNNNN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AMUTO WAS HOW THE MANGA ENDED AND THAT IS HOW IT SHOULD BEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!! ARGHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!! AND THEY EVEN. GOT. RID. OF. KUTAU. I have a MAJOR grudge against whoever produced Shugo Chara the anime.
