A few years ago, I read in a magazine that Japan was going to make an anime version of "The Powerpuff Girls", with Cartoon Network helping with it. Since there was limited information and the news was released around April Fool's Day, I thought it was a joke (and Cartoon Network/Adult Swim are well known for April Fool's jokes). But a few days ago, I found out that they were telling the truth and the show has been running for almost 2 years now!! It's called "Demashitaa! Powerpuff Girls Z" (very crude name) and its not too bad....unless you can't stand transformation sequences, which, in the first 3 episodes, take about 25-30 seconds to get through (it goes down once the good stuff starts). I think fans of the original will like but those unfamiliar will probably have some confusion.
