Trivia:
Manga artist Nao Yazawa was asked to create the character design for Sandra, and in the original sketches, she gave him a rather extravagant eye patch and ninja-style chain mail. The producers of the series were unhappy with these touches, and so Sandra appeared in the TV series without them, but otherwise remained mostly the same. The original sketch by Nao Yazawa can be found in a special section of volume four of the manga (in the English translation put out by Viz, Sandra's name is translated as "Thundora"), but other than this, he does not appear in the manga storyline itself.See more »

Good 'magical girl' offspring, 12 March 2005
Author: IkuharaKunihiko from Croatia, Europe

Being a big fan of anime, I was looking forward to "Wedding Peach". Sure, when I first heard its title I almost chuckled, but the reputation of this anime was huge so I wanted to give it a try. Somehow, it never worked fully for me. It had nice colors, songs, art design, characters, but not that special charm that I anticipated for a "magical girl" show.

The story follows Momoko, a young girl with purple hair. Her mother died and she lives with her father. Her best friends are Yuri and Hinagiku whom often go to school with her. They are all in love with a boy called Kazuya who plays soccer and that's why they sometimes get into arguments. But one day, after she is attacked by a demon-man who wants to steal her ring, Momoko is soon given special powers from a higher being called Aphrodite. Thanks to that, Momoko transforms into Wedding Peach and starts fighting demons. Yuri and Hinagiku join her by transforming into Angel Lily and Daisy. In order to save the world and bring love to everyone, they must defeat Devila...

--------------

Momoko's hair was purple. Hinagiku's was green. Their "fighting" skirts looked like wedding dresses. And to top it all they soon got a small pet "demon" called Jamapi that decided to be their sidekick. This kind of trashy details ruined any higher ambitions. Still, "Wedding Peach" is a good anime and I loved the pilot episode. In it Momoko had a wedding dress on and was looking herself in the mirror. But then her father saw her before going to work and she got all embarrassed. But just as he left Yuri and Hinagiku appeared and saw her too, causing her again to blush. Yuri even said; "What is this sight trying to tell us?" Also, we got to find out how strong their friendship is: the three of them bought ice creams with different flavors and decided to share a bite with each other. The theme of friendship is something appreciated in many animes. The characters are so devoted to each other and are not ashamed of emotions that you just have to find them cute. Unfortunately, I found that the series never managed to re-gain the heights and charm of the excellent pilot. It was good, but never completely harmonious as a whole.

If at least there was one magnificent moment here that reached the "Sailor Moon" greatness (like in episode 34, "The Sparkling Silver Crystal! The Moon Princess Appears", where Usagi's tear miraculously transforms into the Silver Crystal), I would have given "Wedding Peach" a higher grade.

Grade: 6/10
