Momona is an ordinary junior-high school student hailing from Jewel Land. At her cousin's wedding, she envies the bride, Lady Diana, due to the fact that she is marrying the cousin who she had a slight crush on. However, once she sees Lady Diana and her cousin together, Momona begins to like her, and accepts her as her cousin's bride. Just as Lady Diana is about to properly meet her and introduce herself, Momona is transported to a snowy place in Jewel Land where the ruler, Lady Jewel, is giving a speech to the Petit Ladies, girls who are chosen as Jewel Candidates to be the next Lady Jewel. Momona meets her partner and mentor, Ruby, a white rabbit, who will guide her through the tasks in becoming Lady Jewel. Whoever passes the most tasks wins and becomes the next Lady Jewel, but standing in her way is Lillian, a girl who also aims to win the title of Lady Jewel, so she can choose her brother, Cayenne, to be her King alongside her. Momona soon also begins to fall in love with Cayenne, yet Lillian doesn't want her to get too close to him. Cayenne also seems to harbor feelings for Momona, but who will be chosen in the end as Lady Jewel to decide it all? And will Momona and Lillian ever become true friends and will Cayenne and Momona ever be together?
Yes, it’s kids’ anime. Why it’s so enjoyable to watch? Let’s see!
(Note: English isn’t my 1st language and anime is still running so I don’t know what’ll happen in the future)
I was really surprised to find out Sanrio is making a long running anime. Well, it’s very cute anime. Character designs are really lovely and stylish, especially boys are good looking and fresh. Girls are a bit of mainstream, the main protagonists are shy (Karon), outgoing (Momona) and boyish (Mizuki) girls.
Momona is at his cousin's wedding where she meets his beautiful wife and then she suddenly is wandering near the Jewel Palace, where all the lady candidates studies to become the number 1 lady!
During the 1st tasks clumsy Momona meets prince Cayenne, handsome and confident boy. When Momona starts to be around Cayenne more, Cayenne’s admirer Lilian says Momona can’t have him without being top lady. So hard road to aim for top place starts. But after Cayenne moves to another school nearby, another new prince called Miura arrives to palace. He starts solving the mysteries around school, Lilian and her mentor Lua. And why the Jewelland is bothered by long winter and odd monsters?
Overally, it’s been so far very fun to watch despite being kid stuff. It has elements of magical girl series, since the girls and their Jewelpets have jewelpods to change clothes etc. There's also some mystery, fighting and humor and of course the power of friendship. The opening and ending song by Fairies is awesome and all the music in this anime is really nice for my ears. Only thing what may bother sometimes is the very simple animation, and so far it had only one filler episode and one review ep.
Also the character developing is huge, clumsy girls get confident, shy girls more brave and so on. And all the handsome boys are just making you scream. Lady Jewelpet is also very romantic anime and all the pairings in the show are cute and works well.
If all the pink stuff and super kawaii jewelpets doesn’t scare you away, give it a chance! It gets better the more you watch it! read more
