Storyline

Based on the American cartoon, "The Powerpuff Girls", Professor Utonium and his son Ken are studying the strange Chemical X. When a mochi cake falls into the formula, it changes into Chemical Z. Ken fires a ray of Chemical Z at a glacier in Tokyo Bay, however that causes strange black and white lights to scatter. The black lights turn its victims into monsters, with emphasis on a black light hitting a zoo monkey and transforming him into Mojo Jojo. The white lights, however, aim at three normal girls, Momoko, Miyako, and Kaoru. This gives them the power to transform into superheroes, the Powerpuff Girls Z!

A disappointing adaptation of the original
15 November 2012 | by homey104See all my reviews

When I heard that PPG was going to be turn into an anime I was like "Oh hell yeah!!!" cause I could already imagine what a PPG anime would have been like and how cool it would be compare to the original show but after the show premiered and after 26 episodes into it my enthusiasm had went from skepticism to disappointment because honestly... PPGZ isn't what I imagined nor was I expecting as an anime style PPG series.

Compare to the original this version is nothing short but childish, ridicules, illogical and well, once again... Disappointing! It ignores the traits & essence that made the original series great in the first place to the point that the show was more on comedy and less on action rather than being a perfect balance of both as the original show. For the main characters themselves, they were portrayed very different than the original counterparts in terms of characteristics/personalities not to mention they came off as being less powerful than their original counterparts.

I highly wouldn't recommend this to anyone who is a hardcore fan of the PPG, it won't be worth the look! In edition, I would advise to just stick with the original show because this one will only make the one that it is loosely based on look much better in comparison.
