Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi follows the adventures of two very cool, but very different, pop stars as they travel from gig to gig or just hang out in their hometown, Tokyo. Being famous rock stars, Ami and Yumi tour the globe in their customized Puffy bus, a veritable condo on wheels with all the major amenities and an ever-changing interior. Ami is the peppy, positive and resourceful one. Yumi is the hard-rocking, no-nonsense cynic with an absolutely infallible sense of cool. Together, these superstars take the world by storm with musical talent, trend-setting style and humor, despite occasional misjudgments from their well-meaning but tragically square manager, Kaz. Whether they're jamming with aliens, being chased to the center of the earth by an obsessed fan or getting knocked into a video game by a tsunami, Ami and Yumi always come out on top - dishing out lessons in J-pop justice and the international language of "cool" along the way.

An interesting cartoon
1 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi is a funny cartoon about two rock stars and their manager traveling the world, playing a concerts and going on wacky adventures. The characters Ami and Yumi are funny and quite mature. Ami is a is a sweet girly girl who's really into guys, and her friend Yumi is a tomboy punk girl. This cartoon is not for everyone. I'm not for sure what ages this show is for , but here's my most accurate guess. Ages 9 to 13. The show is not as well known as SpongeBob, but it should be heard of. One character I for got to talk about is their cheap, and extremely kooky manger Kaz. Kaz does very cheap tricks in the show, such as him making robot clones of Ami and Yumi, to do interviews and things for himself. Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi is a wacky, hilarious, and sort of mature cartoon that deserves a chance. I give it a 7.1/10
