A True 80ies Edutainment Anime Classic
9 February 2010 | by AlfabetaSee all my reviews

One of the best edutainment products on the market, this anime gem has all the trade marks of the 80ies, from the (fine) quality of hand-drawn animation to the vision of the future with robots, cybernetic environment and virtual games as part of the culture. The story in the show is simple. Couple of kids get a special computer, which upon receiving an entry, releases a "ghost in the shell" in the form of a little female pink genie (acordingly named Ginnie in the English dub). Ginnie has the power to take the kids in the virtual reality of the past so they can see with their own eyes how penicillin was discovered, or what was Benjamin Franklin like (we're talking G rating here, so no worries).

The show's main goal was to entertain kids with the futuristic setting and yet teach them a few facts about history and it's greatest names. This is probably one of only a couple of shows that actually succeeds triumphantly in this ambitious goal. Kids will love it, and adults will have fun as well, if only for the wonderful imagination that was used in these sequences.

If you like anime, edutainment or simply want your kids to have fun and learn at the same time do try to dig this up. There's also a very good English dub for those who like that kind of translation. The show later grew a subplot with futuristic robots which was probably an attempt to keep the viewers with something new. This was the weaker part of the series, but the first part was highly enjoyable...
