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 is peak fiction, I haven't come across any other anime that can compare to this.
The way Di gi Charat is written is genius in that it ascends the general rubric for anime and I had to evaluate it in a way different from any other series. The character designs for Dejiko, Puchiko, and Usada are peak moe and the citizens of akihabara being represented as anthropomorphic thumbs is a great metaphor for how the city is a hub for gamers. The comedy is a great mix of surreal humor and satire. All in all a great show if you're pretty acquainted with anime and ...

Di gi charat, I barely know the order to watch the anime so I thought starting from here was good

-Story 7/10-
Look the story was really nice, and they even added some other fun yet casual elements. Sadly I put a 7 (seven) because we don't see the characters at said shop in every episode, the fact that they're working in a shop feels like a not important detail

-Art 8/10-
Main characters had pleasant designs. The background characters is what bothered me. Look if I were an alien wo came at planet earth and saw that everyone there was like a bean and I were the only ...

I don't know what I've just watched, and I don't understand the positive reviews at all.

Di Gi Charat is a straight-up bizarre and incomprehensible mess. We have a bunch of cute looking characters (with one if any personality traits) going on weird adventures which the writers saw in their fever dreams. That's all.

I have no idea who is supposed to be the target audience. It's too fast-paced and inappropriate for kids, but at the same time somehow too childish and boring for teenagers and adults.

The only thing I enjoyed are the characters' designs, they're cute and nice to look at.
