Personal Opinions


Heartcatch is prob­ably the closest anything's ever come to being a Super Robot Show for girls. The slightly exag­ger­ated char­ac­ter designs and bright visu­als give the show a colorful and upbeat tone. The char­ac­ters are a little cliché(Shy glasses-girl, pushy genki-girl, self-conscious tom­boy), but they’re believ­able and their inter­ac­tions seem genu­ine. They also exhibit a fair amount of growth through­out the story. The story itself is well… stand­ard magical girl fare. The plot is simple, lin­ear and advances at a snail’s pace. The vil­lains are mostly incompetent and the mas­cot char­ac­ters are pretty annoy­ing. The transformation sequences and attack animations are bright, flashy and completely awesome. The clear standout of its franchise, Heartcatch is rather well-constructed, executed, and fun for what is essentially a series of 20-minute commercials for girls' toys.
