Having infiltrated Earth with blind ambitions of stardom, Princess Di Gi Charat—also known as Dejiko—of the planet Di Gi Charat quickly realizes that money makes the world go around, of which she has none. On a never-ending, futile mission to change her socioeconomic status, Dejiko, her sidekick Petit Charat "Puchiko", her royal guardian Gema, and her competitive coworker Hikaru Usada try everything in their power to overturn the soul-crushing mundanity of working in retail—all in a series of surreal yet ironically relatable attempts at spicing up their daily lives.

This was a very short anime, I saw all the episodes in about 1 night. One reason I liked this was because it was very cute and random. But a reason I didn't like it was because it didn't have Piyoko in it. Piyoko is a character from most of the other Di Gi Charat series, by the way. The art style was very cute, I really liked it. ^^ I think if you have time, you should watch this series. I reccomend it! Thanks for reading :D

May as well make a review for this. Maybe someone out there will read this!
For such an old series (more than 10 years), Di Gi Charat can actually deliver something... may it be fun and laughter, cuteness or just filling in some spare minutes, as these episodes are only 4-7 minutes long.

WEIRD FACT: Di Gi Charat was solely created by Broccoli just to advertise their Gamers store in Akihabara, Japan.

There isn't much of a storyline. We have 2 young catgirls: Dejiko (who dreams to become an idol) and Puchiko, and their floating blob Gema decide to land in Akihabara. With no actual place to stay, ...

It is impossible to take Di Gi Charat 100% seriously. Firstly, there is no linear narrative -- each episode is a vignette with the established characters in a new situation (but not necessarily a different setting). And secondly, the script is so insane, the writers were definitely having a riot making this stuff up. There is no mistaking this for a serious entry into the anime records.

This was one of the first anime series I watched start to finish as a teenager, and it blew my mind. With only a handful of animes under my belt, I'd seen enough to be very familiar with several ...
