What is with those red circles with a white spot on the boobs? It looks like they have pustules on their breasts. I can't imagine who came up with this idea but they should google image search pustule.

Recently I have seen those "red circles" quite a bit in many animes, it seems to be a fad that I hope slowly dies overtime.

Seems to me ANN is not very fond of this series, which is to be expected. IMO it is the perfect opposite of Sailor Moon Crystal. It does not takes itself seriously (no drama), it features nice magical girl transformations (I am looking at you ugly CGI), the character designs are easy on the eyes and it is shonen fodder (unlike the shojo fodder which is SMC).

If this series sales poorly no one will notice, but if it manages to outsell SMC in the disc market, I bet many people will have a serious crisis that will make me laugh for years to come.

It won't, and you're deluded if you think it even has a chance.

Momo Kyun Sword is like Tanken Driland (but with juicy peaches), innocuous kiddie stuff that is entertaining. Unlike most anime series, this you can show this to your kids (unless you have allergy to peaches like most of ANN staff), so I think this will have modest sales.



Nowadays anime shoujo series sell badly unless they have BL undertones (KB, Free) or have a strong male protagonist (Hoozuki no Reitetsu). Tuxedo Mask is not a protagonist (he is a support character) and there are no BL undertones and (unlike the original) SMC is 100% shoujo, so even Toei does not expect this to sell many discs (I would not be surprised if they release it only on DVDs), which is fine since they are aiming to finance the series with increased sales of merchandise (unrelated to disc sales) and stream revenue.

In summary, I am not the one deluded here.

This should be self explainatory, but it's the same as the ejecting of blood from a boy's nose when he should see a naked girl. It's a fool for the censors. Wink
