Akazukin Chacha is the story of a young magical girl (Mahō Shōjo) named Chacha. Living with her guardian in a cottage on Mochi-mochi mountain is Seravi, who is her teacher and also the fictional world's greatest magician. Chacha is clumsy in casting her spells because, throughout the anime, when she summons something, it often turns out to be something that she didn't mean to cast, for example, spiders (kumo) instead of a cloud (also kumo). At times in the anime when she and her friends are in trouble, however, her spells do work. Living on the same mountain is a boy gifted with enormous strength named Riiya. It is described that Riiya came from a family of werewolves who can instantly change into a wolf whenever they want. Quite far from Mochi-mochi mountain lies Urizuri mountain. Dorothy, also a well known magician in her land, lives in a castle on Urizuri mountain. Living with her is Shiine, her student. Shiine is adept when it comes to casting spells. He is a young wizard and most of his knowledge about magic was taught to him by Dorothy.

The first 2 seasons were originally created by the anime team. Most of the stories in season 3 are based on the manga.

I dont really care that you dont like Magical Girl/Shoujo anime's,your gonna sit and watch this and love it

Its that good,dont deplete yourself of a good time,so what if the story isnt fabulously original,your not going to be watching this for plot twists on seat grabbing mindgames. Your gonna watch it because you want to be entertained,isnt this what watching anime is all about? having fun and enjoying yourself,without needing to put to much thought into it

Akazukin Chacha is your friend,dont worry about what your friends think,i bet they like death note and code geass,you can do away with them later


yea man,its pretty much AMAZING,did read more

There aren't many reviews for this show, so here's another.
This is a pure comedy, so the story isn't really a focus in any way, but let's cover everything:

Storyline wise, Akazukin Chacha, or "Little Red Riding-Hood" Chacha, is decent at best. Over the course of the series itself, it attempts to construe a vague, generic demon-king versus royal family/heroes of the land type of story. And it does a very good job of achieving what it set out to do, which is to both have an excuse to fight enemies over the course of the show, and to cause conflict during the episodes, giving the characters read more

This was the very FIRST Anime I ever saw! ^_^

I'll never forget it, it came on every day on Cartoon Network, IN ENGLISH DUB (If you can believe that)

The characters are unique! Like for instance, there is a teacher with a whip who will whip the kids if they are bad or mess up (It's not sad, it's done in a comical way).

The story is pretty unique, but isn't the greatest; but it's a lot better than the Manga (Both versions differ in story, yet the Anime adaptation takes place at a school of magic! ^_^)

The theme song is unforgettable!

And the art is great (For read more
