Pucca - Sooga Super Squad (Shout! Factory DVD)
Picture: B Sound: C+ Extras: D Episodes: A
to the Village of Sooga full of ninjas, noodles, kung-fu, and Pucca. Each day
is an action packed adventure, from kung-fu fights, kite flights to zombies,
each day is something new. With super
cuteness and superpowered moves, Pucca is constantly after the heart of Garu,
her 'ninja-boy'. Along with their friends Abyo and Ching, they use their
ancient arts to keep the forces of Tobe and his ninjas and all evil from Sooga
This is a hilarious series, filled with martial arts mayhem and slapstick
comedy. Things are always funnier when
you throw in cute ninjas with kung-fu action! It is funny to watch how everything can be so
much more fun when a game of ping pong, or a race
become a battle between ninjas, and things really get hairy when Pucca decides
to joins the fray. The characters are
all funny and with creative expressions.
This series takes a lot of Asian culture and references and shows what happens
when you add superpowered comedy, cuteness, ninjas and martial arts. Each episode is about 5-7 minutes long and
even with no over all plot it was still very enjoyable
to sit and just watch. With combined
themes of ninjas, traditional Asian culture and modern pop culture it is a
great combination for instant comedy. I
got hooked on this series, with great characters and dialogs, one you start,
you always want to watch to the end!
