Jewelpet Magical Girl Anime Gets 6th TV Show in April
posted on by Egan Loo
TV Tokyo opened a preview website on Thursday to announce that the sixth Jewelpet television anime series, Lady Jewelpet, will premiere on April 5 at 9:30 a.m. on TV Tokyo and its affiliates.
The story centers around Monona, a girl who attended the wedding ceremony of her big brother whom she adores. However, she is whisked away by a cute rabbit-shaped Jewelpet Ruby, and before she knew it, she is in a Jewelpalace where potential candidates to become a Lady have gathered. "Momona was selected by Ruby as the best female Ladyjewel candidate for the Queen of Jewelland!?"
Sanrio and Sega Toys launched their Jewelpet character and toy line in 2008, and the first Jewelpet anime followed a year later. Each Jewelpet toy is a stuffed animal; in the storyline, these pets belonged to magicians in "Jewelland" and can use magic themselves, thanks to their round jewel eyes. They study every day to learn how to use magic.
The first Jewelpet anime was followed by Jewelpet Twinkle, Jewelpet Sunshine, Jewelpet Kira☆Deco—!, and most recently, last year's Jewelpet Happiness.
