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.

one of my favorite series ever
Watched season 1 and 2, didn't watch 3 as the first episode indicated to me it's more of a dragging of the series that has already ended in season 2.
somehow, it makes me feel as of the Pokemon anime series is adapted from this series
while it is marketed as an adventure, it is more of slice of life comedy series while fighting villains throughout the series, feels more of a game boy game to me
If you like this, you would enjoy also goldfish warning, kodocha and the first fruits basket anime series.
if you like the character designs of ...

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 ...

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 ...
