|Title (English)||Red Riding Hood Cha-cha|
|Title (Japanese)||Akazukin Chacha||Art Sample
|Notes||Based on a manga by AYAHANA Min, published in Ribbon magazine, 1992.|
|Synopsis||Chacha is a very cute, little magician girl who is still learning how
to use magic from her teacher Seravi. She has blonde hair, and is
always wearing a red riding hood. Chacha still can't use magic very
well, and messes up a lot. Chacha likes Riiya, although she treats
him like her pet sometimes.
Chacha goes to a magician's school.
Little ChaCha with red hood is a novice sorceress and actually the only heiress of Magical Kingdom, which powerful, monstrous sorcerer now dominates after he turned her parents into stone. ChaCha is no more than incompetent to confront the evil, yet she can `Holy-Up', or transform into a `Magical Princess', a beautiful fighter with legendary weapons... (AAK)
12 year old ChaCha lives in the Mochi-Mochi mountains, where she is studying magic. She is aided by of her friends Ria (a young werewolf) and Shine, who can help her undergo the magical transformations of Love, Heroism and Hope. The great Devil King wants her dead; other rivals include Black Hood, and a mermaid, Marine.
|Review||I'll admit I'm a little disappointed that the Magical Princess is
only in the TV version of the story. (kawaii.... ^_^;;) The TV
character designs are a little bit like those in Hime-chan's
Ribbon. (Chacha seems like a young Hime-chan, and the Magical
Princess seems like an older one.) (RDL)
Funny but otherwise undistinguished. (GC)
