Anime Review - Wedding Peach


Wedding Peach and Viento

Well as spring break is upon us, and before I leave for vacation I thought I would put up a review of Wedding Peach. I have to say I bought the Season one and two box sets on a whim. I saw them on overstock.com for 24 dollars each. You can't beat that price, and boy it was worth every penny. My interest was piqued due to the Sailor Moonish look that Wedding Peach had, and though the story shares some similar motifs, it's still fresh and exciting enough to warrent a watch through. Having said that I have fallen in love with Wedding Peach and her friends, the story is pure shoujo, full of romance and magical girls. Our story is about a young girl named Momoko who is a human with the blood of an angel. Momoko transforms into the love angel Wedding Peach along with her friends Angel Lily and Angel Daisy; in order to fight the evil Queen Raindevila and her evil devils. Along the way Momoko falls in love with soccer player Yousuke Fuma, whom is also a devil (although neither is aware of the fact). In any case I am giving you a really brief and quick summary, there is much more to this story then my brief review. Overall the stories are very Sailor Moon like with the Love Angels fight the monster of the week and what not. This anime is not for everyone as like Sailor moon the magical girl transformation sequences and attacks are super repetitive; and the dub although is excellent, the voices can get a little annoying. I personally think wedding peach is a great watch on one of thos lazy Sunday afternoons, it's not a thought provoking series; it's just great fun. If your looking for more serious and thoughtful anime, then look elsewhere, otherwise just give it a try. Overall the ending was one of those feel good endings with 51 episodes and an extra 4 episodes of OVA, you can't go wrong. On a practical and objective level I would score this series a 7.5 out of 10, because really there is not a lot of substance here. However on a personal level this anime gets a 10 out of 10 since it's won a place in my heart....don't cha know...(lol...a little wedding peach humor).
