Demashitaa! Powerpuff Girls Z – 15

Episode 15: “The Targeted Fashion Show!” + “A Man! Ramen Monster!”


I’d be a very happy man if I actually owned these :~

Alright! Now there’s a lot to talk about this week. So I’m going to do my absolute best to have you all catch up on all the latest that’s going on in the PPGZ world. But first, I believe there was a new episode that just aired a short time ago…


So cute I want to die~!

In the first half, a scouting manager, out of the blue, walks up to both Momoko and Miyako and asks if they would be interested in modeling for her agency in an upcoming fashion show taking place in their town — this has all the makings of a scam you know. As to why you would ask a pair of junior-high school girls, I don’t know either. Anyway, Momoko and Miyako accept. Kaoru however rejects the proposal – no surprise there.

Now with her young talents at hand, the show can go on as planned — although both girls notice how everyone else around them is twice their own age. Moving on, the girls are finally introduced to head designer Shirino Janko — who apparently doesn’t like the mix of henshin belts with her design outfits. The girls are then left with no choice but to remove them at least until the show is over.

Momoko and Miyako then step onto the catwalk, demonstrating Janko’s fashion designs and accessories, all while enjoying their time in the spotlight — especially Momoko. Was that not Sedusa’s theme music being played in the background? Anyway, later came everybody’s favorite monkey villain, who was even more disturbing than usual.


A cross-dressing Mojo never ceases to amuse me


So we’re going for sexier poses now?


Yes those are actual cordless irons with faces you see there


I’m sorry but those outfits make them look even younger — which may or may not be a bad thing, depending on who you ask

The funniest scene was where Momoko accidentally bumps into a disguised Mojo and asks whether or not he’s okay, where he responds, “I’m fine mojo”. Every response after that had him finishing his sentences with a “mojo” in the end, haha! Anyway the first half concluded with the girls wearing Janko-sensei’s newly design skin-tight outfits. So tight you can almost see everything. Just what the hell audience are they trying to target here?

Next half had another one of these filler villains. Nothing much to say about this one, except for the scenes where Miyako was about to toss her cookies! :D


Pass. This one’s too easy


Pregnant Husbando GET

Fetish artwork would soon follow:


“責任とってね” (“Be sure to take responsibility ‘k?”)

Uh-oh! Is next week’s episode dedicated to waifu?! (*´Д`)ハァハァ


“A table, a chair, a bowl of fruit and a violin; what else does a man need to be happy.”

Chances are I’m going to feel sorry for her again, what with a title called, “Sorrow! Princess’ Secret”. But I’ll be there, supporting the Princess all the way, because that’s what a good partner does ;P

Well with another delightful episode under our belt, news of the official R2 DVDs were just recently announced! The report, or should I say CM, was actually broadcast together with yesterday’s episode, pleasing fans from all over as they have been anxiously awaiting word of the DVD volumes:

As you can see from the image above, there will be two different formats to choose from. The Limited Collector’s Edition, or the Regular Edition set. Notice how the Limited release has the words “Volume 1” applied to it, meaning there will be more special editions to come. December 20th seems to be the release date. So what do you receive exactly if you decide to go with the limited copy?

  • Special Clear DVD Cover
  • Hyper Blossom Pinup Card
  • 8-page Foldout Booklet

The Limited Edition set is retailed at 4,725 yen — roughly $40 USD. The Normal Edition volumes are retailed at 1470 yen each — roughly $12 USD. These are a must buy for any fan at those prices. Hell we’re not even sure if the domestic release will include the Japanese audio track. Remember folks, this is Toei we’re talking about. You know how they are about international licensing of their material — may I remind you that One Piece R1 DVDs do not include a JPN track. Oh and don’t even expect to ever hear the Japanese dub of Pretty Cure here in the US anytime soon. And do I even have to mention the infamous American release of Air Master. I swear, they’ll never forgive us about our rendition of Sailor Moon now will they…

Well with all the excitement that followed, I immediately turned to good ‘ol CDJapan and preorder my copy of the Limited Edition set. Proof!

Oh yeah! You better believe I’m going to support this show all the way through ;P And seeing as how mendinso was kind enough to help me find some info on whether or not the show was actually set for 52 episodes, I’m in this ride for at least another half a year — giving you guys weekly coverage, screencaps, fanart, news and whatnot. I have no plans to stop anytime soon.

Next up on our agenda is the unveiling of these brand new future episode titles. As you already know, the following are only tentative. So it may change at any given moment. Please keep this in mind as you read them:

  • Episode 16 – “哀れ!プリンセスの秘密” その1/その2 ~ (“Sorrow! Princess’ Secret” Part 1&2) [10/14]
  • Episode 17 – “シャッターチャンスを逃すな!” / “兄弟愛!電波モンスター” ~ (“Don’t Let The Shutter Chance Slip Away!” / “Fraternal Love! Radio-Wave Monster”) [10/21]
  • Episode 18 – “モンスター タッグバトル” その1/その2 ~ (“Monster Tag Battle” Part 1&2) [10/28]
  • Episode 19 – “最強!キーン先生” / “哀しきピアノレッスン!” ~ (“The Strongest! Keane-sensei” / “A Sorrowful Piano Lesson!”) [11/04]

And finally, I leave you all with a bit of a weekly rollup of other interesting notes related to the series:

  • According to this article from Daily Yomiura Online, there are plans to broadcast the upcoming dub on CN. Surprise surprise.
  • Last week, I realized I never mentioned the newly revised OP sequence Toei had debuted on air — seeing as how my last entry was just another bs caption-filled post ;P But in case you want to compare the two, or if you fail to catch any of the changes the first time seeing it, you might want to take a look at this image here. Also, I’m fairly certain this newly visual OP will be used for all episodes starting from volume one of the DVD release.
  • Check out this awesome midi file of the henshin sequence theme made by dance_priest.
  • In my last post, I was making a few remarks as to the panstu issue that Kaoru’s character apparently faces every now and then, thanks to the many talents behind Toei/Aniplex. Here’s my last and final piece of evidence of the said case — well maybe not final but for now yes.
  • Lastly, I notice how I promised an all-Nana Kitade PV share some weeks back. Don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten.

  5. Oh you’re absolutely right. Fixed! Thanks for pointing that out :D

    P.S. – Just letting everyone know, the subs for episode 12 are out. Miyako fans, re-live the experience once more!

  7. It looks the Rowdypuff Boys will not appear in a near future, and Him too. I’m beginning to understand why Toei gave Kaoru that haircut, she looks ridiculous wearing dress

  9. Oh yeah, I’m definitely watching that episode again.

    Don’t worry, Him and the Rowdyruff Boys HAVE TO appear. My guess is that the animators are looking at the numerous amount of RRB fans and are like “oh shit, we gotta get this right if we want to keep our heads”

  11. I haven’t ordered the DVDs yet because the information makes no sense – the Collector’s Edition should include both regular edition discs, but CD Japan is reporting 96 minutes for each of the regular editions *and* for the Collector’s Edition. If the Collector’s Edition isn’t going to be complete, what collector would want it?

  13. Got late to reply this time. You had to see the mess that was formed at my work…try to organize 40+ totally unknown and unlabeled network cables in a 0.5m space and you’ll understand how my head feels.
    I saw the DVD announcement at 2chan this saturday. Sounds good enough to me, and I’ll get the collectors edition I think.
    @Setsu: Are there so many RRB fans? I never gave too much attention to them…
    I am cheering for Sado Satan..eeerrrr…Him though.
    @PKjd: Ep.12? To re-live I go! Miyako is the best for me :D
    By the way, does that shop you ordered from ship to Spain?

  15. “Are there so many RRB fans?”
    What, are you kidding me?! They make up 90% of the overall international fanbase. Do you have any idea just how eager these RRB fangirls are to see the anime counterparts of their precious heroes? “Where are the RRB?!” — “What! No RRB in the next episode?!” — “The RRB are missing from the new ED!” Now I don’t have anything against them really, although I don’t appreciate how a majority of them happen to hate Himeko for some reason ;P All I do know is that all hell is going to break lose once their episode becomes official. Oh man, I can already hear the screaming fangirls all the way from where I live, hahah!

    Oh and to answer your question about shipping. Yes! They provide the same service all over Europe. Link.

  17. What’s so special about the RRB anyway? They appeared only in like three episodes and are just dumb brats with too much power. Even a member of the gangreen gang is more interesting than those three, character-wise.

  19. Well, that was pretty silly. Definitely one of the worst episodes yet. But, hey, the upcoming one’s looking pretty good. Aren’t we gonna get a Momoko-centered episode soon? I feel it’s definitely time for that.

    What’s special about RRB? I’m no fan, but here’s my hypothesis: There are alot of fan girls out there. Fan girls loves pairing up the main characters with other characters and write stupid fanfiction about it. And paring up the PPG with the RRB is pretty easy, since they even have matching color schemes. Okey, so maybe that’s not the whole truth… but I still think I have a point. ;)

    I’d also like to add that:
    And so, one again, the week is saved. Thanks to PKjd’s random gallery of PPGZ pictures.

  21. What you said about the rrb popularity, was I believe real close to the Truth :p

    The villain I’m looking forward to, is Him. Now, -that- was one awesome bastard.

  23. As fangirl myself, I admit some of these are right XP. But IMO, I like the RRB because they practically destroyed the PPG, before the whole kiss-get-cooties-explode thing, and just cause I love the whole battle of the sexes scenerio. And I’m sure boys who are fans, like them for their own existence, since the PPG are suited more to girls, while the guys who watch the show can go for the RRB. It’s funny. Some are hoping for actual romance between them, mostly cause is mahou shoujo (and because is probably not THAT impossible, even in the original). Too bad that for BoomerxBubbles fans there is someone name Takaaki in the way, the poor guy possibly getting wishes for his death.

    But their return absolutely ruined the RRB in the original, seriously. For proof, see their first ever appearance, and their later ones without Craig. The writers just reduced their IQ and turn them into damn comic relief. Boomer got dumb, Butch got retarded, and Brick is the sanest, but has that stupid streak and has no sharp senses of intellect. If this was what I had to see, I would have preferred them to stay gone.

    *sigh* Oh well, complaining won’t do anything. But back to PPGZ, I’m sure that the writers are saving the best for last to keep the fans in, and that means keep Him and the RRB (the 2 most powerful nemesis, I would think)for later.

    It makes me wonder how the ratings will fly up once both villains show up. I predict very, very high. In fact, just see how fans/fangirls will react once they see the preview.

  25. I just wonder what kind of weapons they’ll use, their battles will not be like in original version due the changes of anime, and like the girls use her weapons will not be fair if the guys try to use his punches like Mojo did in a beginning.

  27. I don’t really like how they portrayed mojo in PPGZ!, his true intelligence seems to be overly underrated and he doesn’t have a decent laboratory yet.

    As for the RRB in the originals, I wasn’t really a fan of them. But it’s the whole concept of the battle of the sexes (like TwilightStar mentioned) that really stirs up one’s interest. I’m guessing that the boys will wield modified weapons similar to their female counterparts (though I think Boomer with a bubble-blower stick is just weird).

    Him is a much well-developed villian. But the reason I think he isn’t appearing yet would most probably be his (un)godly powers (pun intended). Perhaps a potential power boost will be given to the girls during his appearance.

    It’ll definitely be interesting if he shows up though I can’t quite imagine a scene where Him is being smacked by a yoyo, hit by bubbles and taken down by a hammer yet.

  29. I already made theories on RRB weapons, but Ruff is their middle name…literally. So if they only confront the girls in hand to hand combat, it won’t be like Mojo’s lame multi punch attacks. But my ideas are obviously based on weapons that counter the girls.

    I can’t really explain the popularity of the boys. It’s beyond coupling. My reason for liking them so much is because they are, and still remain, the girls true rivals. With the exception of possibly the Powerpunk Girls, the Rowdyruff Boys are the only characters who can match them in power and speed. And like the girls, they’re still growing, making them the perfect rivals.

    As for the comment on their later episodes, what did like at least was that their personalities were expanded on. In their debut episode, it was really Brick doing all the talking and their personalities were almost in unison: bad, bully-like boys looking to kick butt. Later episodes expanded on that:

    Brick=egotistical leader
    Boomer=the stupid younger brother
    Butch=okay, I’ll agree that this one was retarded. I guess he’s supposed to represent how destructive a boy can be.

    What you have to remember though is that the boys are supposed to be bully-like. The way they fight is almost like that of a bully: torturous, painful, and using mainly power. In return, the boys would lack IQ. I can understand why someone would hate their change, but I think it was to be expected. You shouldn’t just assume that the boys would make a perfect match against the girls.

  31. I feel so sad. I found out Kouki Miyata does the scary pedo Snake. Of all people to do Snake’s voice, why him?

  33. Let's talk about the first half of the episode:
    Momoko and Miyako are both like wearing dresses but Kaoru doesn't. The outfits that are designed by a head designer named Shiri No Janko makes both Momoko and Miyako look fat at the lower part of their body. As a result, I don't like the fashion which makes them look like this. At the end of that part, the head designer designs the fashion which makes them look embarrassing and jump improperly. Worse still, how about if they are injured by these clothes.

    Let's talk about the second half of the episode:
    The Ramen Monster forced everyone the proper way to eat ramen, making everyone in Tokyo city hates the monster. The monster also makes the girls eat so full like pregnants.

    To conclude, the episode is the worst episode since episode 1.
