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, read more

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

Di Gi Charat is a very colorful and humorous slice of life following two catgirls, Dejiko and Puchiko, who wind up in Akihabara. Without a home, they find work at a game shop (called "Gamers" -- Which, interestingly enough, is the store that this anime was aired as an ADVERTISEMENT for, before it became a series).

What's really great about this anime is that it's taken in 16 bite-size chunks of about three minutes each. A lot is packed in to this tiny series, and it moves quickly. The timing for the jokes and for Dejiko's eyeball beam drive the humor read more

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 read more

These girls might be just mascots for a store in Akihabara but this anime is worth a watch. I wouldn't put it high on your queue or anything, but if you're like me and have the attention span of a 5 year old with ADHD who just consumed 3 cups of coffee, and you also happen to have 40 or so minutes to kill this is a good watch. it's fast paced, the episodes are super short, it's colourful, quirky, and the stupid jokes and gags are right up my absurdist alley. Being familiar with the area of Akihabara will give you a bonus layer read more

I guess the most succinct and germane review I can provide for Di Gi Charat is that it very much comes across, to me at least, as sort of a Japanese "Aqua Teen Hunger Force." I doubt the creators of either series were aware of the other (though they were begun within a year or so of one another), but they absolutely possess a similar spirit and sensibility.

The two shows share the same sort of dada, nonsensical storytelling, and a comparable comic use of the non sequitur. Aqua Teen's weirdo style certainly isn't for everyone, and neither is Di Gi Charat's. But if, like me, read more
