Power Puff Girls … Anime?

Demashitaa! Powerpuff Girls ZThe Anime News Network website is reporting that Toei Animation and Aniplex are joining forces with Cartoon Network to produce a japanese anime series based on the popular Powerpuff Girls cartoon produced in the US.

The announcement for the new series, entitled “Demashitaa! Powerpuff Girls Z”, was made at this year’s Tokyo Animation Fair, where a poster, promotional artwork and preview video (screenshots) were made available to the public.

The style for this new series seems to be more traditional, if not generic, for japanese anime. This is something of a shame, as the US series used a rather unique, minimalist style to elevate it’s borrowed anime magical girl genre concept to a new level.
