The Secret Ingredient: Cultural Repackaging X! June 26, 2006

Posted by Samurai Tusok in Anime.


Demashita! Powerpuff Girls Z


Naughty Ninja just discovered a very bizarre magical bishoujo revisioning of the Powerpuff Girls, which suffice to say is the strangest cultural feedback loop I’ve seen. It defies Understanding, and by that I mean, trying to comprehend it in some form other than a mindwank academic fuckpiece piled with CTheory-type textual hypnotics.

I mean think about it: The Powerpuff Girls was born from a mutant blend of exported Japanese kawaii aesthetic crossbred with the aesthetic affectations of children’s storybooks. And now Cartoon Network wants to take that and pump it BACK into the J-pop machine.



Naughty Ninja recommends the following related links, she came across them mostly because she was dying to know what the magical transforming sequences looked like:

Official Demashita!Powerpuff Girls Z trailer on YouTube – Features glimpses of the revamped Professor, Mojo Jojo, Mayor and Ms. Bellum.

D!PPGZ Wikipedia Entry – Small and not entirely well written, but details some of the key differences between the original and upcoming series.

Online Power Puff Girls Doujinshi at Snafu Comics – Fans claim the new anime series is based on this, or “how things should have been done”. Enjoy the doujinshi for what it is, with cameos from Samurai Jack, Courage the Cowardly Dog, and Dexter the boy genius. Unfortunately, it features tasteless energy balls in the first arc. It makes up for it with Dragon Ball Z and Sailor Moon parodies in the second.
