Posted by psgels on 27 October 2007 with categories: Shugo Chara


Hmm, this episode wasn’t as fun as the previous ones. It also alerted me of one major flaw in this series: why the heck is Amu the only one who can transform?! In this episode, we saw another kid’s evil egg hatching, though Amu is the only one who tries to stop it, despite the fact that the student council has many chances to do so before she gets there. Why didn’t they transform to their powerful form, just like Amu does?

This episode also introduces the main villain for this series, who cleverly disguises himself as a clumsy teacher, in order to get as much access to down-hearted children as possible. Makes sense. The girl for this episode was someone who was about to be transferred to America, and got scared because of this. Because of this, her evil egg hatched and a strange black Shugo Chara started attacking everyone with very, very, very bad Engrish.

It’s not really the best of all stories, and it felt rather mundane to me, though I guess it serves as a nice build-up. One thing I did like was the scene between Amu and Neko-guy, when he tried to pay her back for the cake he smashed in the previous episode. There’s some funny chemistry between the two of them.

    That’s cause none of them can actually transform except for her.

  2. totoum says:

    yeah they keep saying in previous episodes “wow you can transform but we can’t”

    yet,in episode 3,i thought that i saw transformation from other characters,so i’m confused lol.

    Apparently, they can have “Chara-changes”, but they can’t actually transform. I do hope that there’s some explanation for this on the way, though.

    I love this anime and I havent yet seen this episode.
    Could you tell me where you found it?
    I watched up to 3 on YouTube, but Im lost as to where else I can find it.
    Any help would be appreciated!

    This episode probably hasn’t come out subbed yet. You need to wait a bit longer.

  6. totoum says:

    formula subs is doing it,they generally release episodes on tuesday.

  7. starry says:

    they cannot transform because they are not powerful enough or something. And they need the humpty lock in order to transform too.
    + they can only change cannot totally transform.

  8. totoum says:

    After having seen it,that engrish was downright evil,but that made the episode fun to me,i’m really liking the villain too,overall i did enjoy it,looking forward to the next episode.

    others transform. when cat-boy transforms he gets cat ears and a tail. and when that evil girl Uata or something transforms she gets bat wings. and when that prince guy transforms he gets a crown above his head.

    The old mecha shows are too campy for me X(

    @emma i also think Gargantia held its own pretty well. Although obviously not as well as sidonia, it was a mainstream mecha show that was fresher than the rest. As for Sidonia, I love the atmosphere. Its so rare nowadays to get an anime as atmospheric

    Then you get the odd mecha like shin mazinger or giant robo.

    @Brendan: Geass was a sneaky show like shana at the time, I too left anime alone for a bit, then came back and initially those shows got me.

    @Brendan: You’ve got that right with regards to the mech shows but every so often a rare modern one comes along like sidonia comes along. I have retrospectively turned against code geass.

    Maube its because the season has no alright shows? But vision of escaflowne is something i did watch and i think it was a bit too mixed in with the likes of Gundam and Evangelion to leave a very huge impact. They all came out in 96

    Death note is a rare shounen that kept me interested in the long run but I felt started to cop-out later on. Kimi ga nozumo eien threw in an interestingly question with its drama and I recall finding it emotionally involving at the time I watched it.

    Psgels probably won’t write extensively anymore, if he’ll ever blog again that is. The other writers just sorta took off. They might start posting again if they find free time, but that also seems unlikely.

    Speaking of fantasy mecha: Escaflowne was a show that I thought would breed more copycats than it did. But just like Brendan says the ‘school kid riding the deus ex machina to victory against the world-threatening aliens’ formula became the di facto diagram of mecha for more than a decade now.

    What happened to all the writers here? Psgels and all the others havent written in forever. Not that i really care though because not too many shows this season to watch besides maybe Durarara if im feeling generous

Durarara!!X2 – 08

No animation issues this time around thankfully. Really like the touch of Irelands flag on the cup Shinra gave the girl at their apartment. Sometimes it’s easy to forget that Celty is indeed Irish. Probably one of the few Irish characters in anime. And here we learn that the one who told the little girl […]

Death Parade – 08

Why do you do this to me death parade? You dodge your true potential and instead focus on background exposition or, of all things, comedy. Then just as I was about to lose interest and give up, you present the best episode of the series so far. Now this, this is what I was talking […]

Durarara!!X2 – 07

I think the problem with this episode was evident right from the opening scene. I had to do a double take when seeing a very poorly drawn Simon. I even questioned whether it was a new character entirely. But no, the animation budget took a nosedive. Or the guy who was to do the inbetweens […]

Death Parade – 07

Why is the girl from the last episode still around? This episode brought up three rules about arbiters. The third rule, about arbiters not having emotions, Is odd to me. For the arbiters we have been introduced to are very emotional. They state that Decim was given human emotions yet he is the least emotional […]

Durarara!!X2 – 06

Turns out that assassination attempt got Celty to see her life flash before her eyes. I suppose taking a tumble off a moving motorcycle is a fatal thing. But well in the last arc we saw two people survive getting blown away at about the length of a football field. So I cannot say I […]

Death Parade – 06

Death Parade in a risky move has taken things in a new direction. A daring adventurous move that no one expected. And it is…absolutely terrible. Death Parade, what happened? Did no one read over the script and do a shaft head tilt in wonder? Was there not an Animator who said “Excuse me sir. But […]

Durarara!!X2 – 05

We have yet another new character entering the show. A motorcycle gang leader who has a massive fondness for woman. Personally I am not a fan of him. His brand of female overprotective crazy just seems like a downgrade from the shows already huge cast of crazies. He looks like a character whose introduction serves […]

Death Parade – 05

If asked about how I think of death parade so far, my answer would have to be divided. On one hand the premise is rife with potential and it does have moments where it rises above the bar. But it also seems confused as to what it wants to be. We have death games between […]

Durarara!!X2 – 04

The current story arc ends abruptly and unexpectedly. I am rather surprised that it came here. From how this was portrayed it felt this would be a longer arc than it turned out to be. So with its end I must think back and wonder. What exactly did this arc accomplish? We got introduced to […]

Nerawareta Gakuen Review – 84/100

Let me talk a bit about Ryousuke Nakamura. For a long time, this guy was my hero. He started off as an assistant director to Monster, in my opinion a big reason why that series got such a ridiculously solid adaptation, and then in 2008 he came with the groundbreaking Mouryou no Hako. No TV-series […]

Kick Heart

Okay, so I didn’t want to exit 2013 without having seen Masaaki Yuasa’s Kick Heart. It’s only twelve minutes anyway, and I consider him to be one of the best anime directors out there. The story here is pretty silly and mostly serves as a backdrop, so I mostly want to talk about the nature […]

Kyousogiga Review – 90/100

Everyone’s taste is different, and that’s a wonderful thing because that allows us to have so many different forms of media that all aim toward their own niche.

Noucome! You do not want to know how long I have been waiting for a series like this. More than half a decade, at the very least. Finally a series comes along and puts the incredibly overused harem genre in its place. And it actually does it well. Thank you! So to elaborate: the harem […]

Normally I try to avoid spoilers with these reviews, but screw it, it’s Pokemon. Pokemon The Origin is a bomb of nostalgia. If you haven’t played Pokemon Red, Blue or Green, then you will not enjoy this one slight bit. This really is made as pure undilluted fanservice for the fans of the first games. […]

Tamayura – More Aggressive Review – 75/100

I’m not going to dedicate a post for my impression for the final three episodes of this series. It was just too boring to write much about.

Silver Spoon Review – 86/100

When Noitamina started airing two series per season, it was amazing. It’s a timeslot that on average tends to be aimed at a much older audience than usual, and having two series with the same mentality definitely helped to bring more diversity to anime overall. Unfortunately it’s a schedule that could not be kept up […]

Reviewing a comedy sequel usually is quite simple: in most cases it just drops the bomb and runs out of inspiration, and in rare cases it actually manages to stay hilarious. The tricky thing with these kinds of series is that you need to remain funny, and you need to have the inspiration for that. […]
