American Cartoon with elements borrowed from anime
I stumbled onto this the other day on the nicktoons network while browsing the TV guide. Seeing the word "Shuriken" in a nickelodeon cartoon, I was expecting to see some cheap rip off from an anime, which is seemingly to appear more and more, but I was pleasantly surprised.
The art style is more American, but they use anime expressions and themes. (Ninjas, girls in sailor school uniforms, etc) The voice acting is very nice, which is something rare to find in any English cartoon/English dubbed anime. While it does remind me of other titles, the story line and episode writing is pretty good.
If you're a big Anime fan that doesn't give anything Japanese themed that wasn't made in japan a chance, you won't like it. If that doesn't bother you, it's a real cute children's show that kids and adults alike can enjoy.
Also, the theme song is very, very catchy.
