Amu Hinamori is a student at Seiyo Elementary, where she has a reputation for being “cool and spicy”; however, her real personality is that of an extremely shy and easily intimidated girl. One night Amu makes a wish that she would have the courage to be reborn as her “would-be” self. The next morning Amu finds three brightly colored eggs—red, blue, and green—in her bed. Each egg eventually hatches into a Guardian Character: Ran, Miki, and Su. Guardian Characters are angel-like beings that aid a person into becoming their “would-be” selves and fulfill the person’s dreams. The Guardian Characters accomplish this by giving encouragement and advice, but they can also temporarily change a person’s personality and abilities. With the Guardian Characters, Amu’s life becomes much more complex as she now struggles to deal with her new personalities and the Seiyo Elementary Guardians—a student council group where each member has their own Guardian Character—who recruits Amu to search for and seal the X eggs and X Characters, corrupted forms of people’s dreams. – My Anime List
Based on 15 review scores:
This anime is one of the best animes I have ever seen! Some people don’t like Shugo Chara because it’s just “X Eggs come and get purified”, but this anime has shown me what I want my true self to be. This anime always makes me wonder what I want to be and made me try to achieve my true self. This anime has romance, comedy, some action, cute charas, and cute guys. This anime is truly a good anime for anyone to watch!
A cute, fun magical girl show that also serves as a possible great introduction to anime for a younger audience.
Of the shows they have licensed, Shugo Chara! is the one that interests me most. It is a traditional magical girl story with a fresh new twist–possibly the funniest series of 2008 and certainly the cutest.
My Anime List
My enjoyment of this series was really off the charts. I really wanted to give this show a perfect score but the way the story drags on with little happening towards the end hurts its overall score. If you’re even have a passing interest in Mahou Shoujo stories, then Shugo Chara! has to be at the top of your watch list. For everyone else, your mileage may vary but I think your seriously missing out if you don’t give this show a try.
The Cajun Samurai
Shugo Chara was a masterpiece and I’m sorry it got the score it did. Well then next time on Andrain’s side of the Caijin Samurai… Apparently SAO finally got over to the states as expected. You people need to know what you’re in for. Sure it’s the… Second I suppose, most popular Anime in Japan right now, and most fair critics simply aren’t sure completely why, so I will take an unbiased and professional look at Sword Art Online. Please look forward to it.
A fellow reviewer claims that Shugo Chara! is like a CardCaptor Sakura for the new millennium. She has a point, of course, but to me it’s a little bit more like CardCaptor Sakura’s older sister. It offers edge, pizazz and acute style. It’s cool, sharp, and clearly trying to be mature. But at the same time, it’s every bit as cute, endearing and cheerful as its hypothetical younger sibling and it doesn’t want the world to forget that just yet. If you enjoy mahou shoujo, Shugo Chara! is a must see. If you’re considering giving the genre a try, this title may well ease you in. Above all, however, this is a fun and refreshing series, and I personally found it a blast to watch. I hope you do as well.
The first season was amazing, it had a good story and it drew me into Shugo Chara. The second and third seasons were reasons why I didn’t remember to review it until now, because they were pretty bad. Second season wasn’t as bad as the third, it still had some sort of story and introduced a new character that I didn’t mind that much in Lulu.
Still, with its array of interesting characters (ranging from adorable to downright strange) it is an interesting watch for someone wanting to fill up time between series, though with 51 episodes, it is anything but short. For anyone wanting a light story line with a few darker plot twists, this is something you may like to look into.
World Without Horizons
Shugo Chara is a show that’ll have you questioning who you are, if you don’t know already. It’s light and bubbly with a lot of characters that get a good amount of character development, some more than others. Besides the fillers, the plot is quite interesting and creative. The whole atmosphere of the show would be cute with drama.
