Net Ghost PiPoPa it's a anime targeted to children, so the humour, interactions and the artstyle is pretty simple, but as a young adult, i enjoyed this series a lot.
The story: It's unexpected if you think about the target audience, The story begins with Yuuta, an elementary student that has been transfered to the first (tecnologicaly) futuristic city in Japan, where everything is controled by computers and internet systems. Unfortunately, yuuta hates/fears computers because of a past trauma. One day Yuuta recieves a strange text and
he is mysteriously swallowed by his cell phone into the net world (internet) meeting three Net Ghosts (a kind
of autonomous programs), Pit, Pot and Pat. The story is a little slow but definetly has a plot. Some terms used are, in my opinion, pretty hard to understand for the children. Summary: Good story, Nice start, slow introduction to the plot, but definetly worth watching.
The art: The art has nothing special but it's very pleasant, vivid colours, nice attention to details and the animations are great and smooth.
The sound: The soundtracks fit perfectly to the series, the openings are sticky and filled with rythm. About the voice acting, is exellent in almost all characters.
The Characters: This is probably the best part. Starting with the PiPoPa, they are very different from each other, they are imprudent and prideful, but clever and in some way very strong, in the other side, Yuuta is the one who tries to make them responsable and helpful instead of using their abilities to cause problems to others. There are some secondary characters that you want to know more about them, like Mamoru, yuuta best friend, and some more.
About the enjoyment: This is a tricky part, my 10 year brother loved it, he devoured the anime in like 4 days and talked about it for weeks. In my case i enjoyed it a lot too but it's definetly not a masterpiece nor something close to it. The children would give it a 10/10 but for more mature audience it would be a 8/10.
Overall: Remember that this anime is for children, but you can definetly enjoy it and is pefect to introduce the younger ones to the anime world.
Even though this Anime is for children, I still love it! The Plot, Sound, and even the artwork!
A Few things I didnt really like though where the characters. The Net Ghosts were perfect, But Yuta acted way to awkward everywhere.
I hope they could make a sequel Although I know they're not going to.
The Story did sadly, have a few of what I consider mistakes, As many parts of the Plot have holes.
The Art was very good, The 3D Rendering IN the Opening theme was great and Impressive for an anime at that time.
The Soundtrack and SFX Were just perfect!
As I mentioned earlier Yuta is really,
My Enjoyment was outstanding! It was hilarious (Especially Pat).
