Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi

Show Summary

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 tour bus. 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 rockin' out to a concert, being chased to the center of the Earth by an obsessed fan, evading opera, or saving farms, Ami and Yumi always come out on top - dishing out lessons in J-Pop justice and the international language of "cool" along the way. Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi also features live-action segments starring the real-life Puffy AmiYumi as well as the group's catchy J-Pop hits. Though the cartoon Ami and Yumi have American voices, they also sometimes speak a bit of Japanese.

  • What a stupid show

    1.0
    This is a stupid shows. It's just about two girls that can't sing to save their lives. Also unlike Sanjay and Craig, not farts and ugly character designs. Why can't animators watch those shows to see what we want to see.

    1/10.
  • Awesome Show!

    The characters were cute and it was just really fun and interesting! Loved it!
  • Sorry finnysohr, but girls can be cool too.

    I thought AmiYumi was virtually on the same level as the Powerpuff Girls, in the sense that it embraced toughness/coolness in female protagonists, while still maintaining that level of cuteness and innocence. That alone made it a heck of a fun show to watch. That and the outright random humor, most of which came from Kaz. Coming from a 19 year old dude, I feel that girls and boys can find appeal to the show, and not have to be guilt-tripped for watching it. Overall, a great show from the later portion of my childhood. Despite its occasional "WTF" moments, it proves to be entertaining.moreless
  • Cute,interesting and unique main characters ruined by cheesy jokes,cliched plots and lazy,off the wall flash animation.

    6.0
    I mean,no offence to benthelooney or any one else who loves this show,but I just can't get into it. It's not bad by any means,but it's just...... not my cup of tea.

    Theo things that practically makes the show are the main characters,who are both very cute and,okay I admit, I had a crush on them when I was a kid. They also have different and unique personalities. Their manager,kaz,however is a cheap mr krabs knock off, who can be funny sometimes,but most of the time,he's just a greedy bastard. The jokes, can also be funny at times, but most of the time,they're really cheesy and corny. The plots are either cliched,predictable or both. The animation,to some people,is unique,but to me,it's just lazy and too off the wall.

    Also,if the show is supposed to parody anime,then why do most of the characters,with the exception of the main characters,look like misshapen fetuses instead of characters resembling anime?

    Also,te main characters are voiced by american voice actors,which I actually don't mind. They actually do a fairly good job at voicing the characters.

    But another thing I can't stand about this show are the scenes with the real ami and yumi. I mean,don't get me wrong,their songs in the show are awesome,but when thet're on screen,it feels like they're actually TRYING to act retarted. I mean, in one episode, they appeared out of nowhere,spoke something about soup and started dancing randomly. And in one episode,there was one scene where they are hanging out with their friends in a pizza shop. And NOTHING FUNNY HAPPENED!!!!! SERIOUSLY!!!! That scene was so boring that it even put my little sister to sleep. But sometimes,they actually DO make me laugh,in an uncomfortable way.

    The episodes are also really hit and miss. Some episodes are better than others. But the show has yet to have a bad episode.

    Overall,a mediocre show. If it weren't for the two beautiful and unique main characters,this show would've gotten a 2.

    Cartoon network has made other cartoons that tried to parody anime like code lyoko,samurai jack,megas xlr,gumball,ben 10,teen titans etc. And all of them were better than this show except ben 10,which in my opinion is just overrated and bland.

  • I wasn't impressed with this show

    1.0
    I thought this show was weak, and it suffered tons of poor writing. This might be a long rant, folks. I'll start off ranting about the animation. It's really kind of creepy, and they try to make it look anime, but fail, just like The Amazing World Of Gumball. The Amazing World Of Gumball is another bad show that airs on the same channel as this show, but we're not talking about that show, now are we? Next, I'm going to rant about the background music. Some of it isn't that bad, but the rest is pretty dull. I find lots of the background music to be annoying and hard to stand after a few seconds and most of the music barely fits the scenes. Some of it also made me cover my ears due to how bad the music was. Thirdly, I will rant about the characters. Seriously, Hi Hi Puffy Ami Yumi? You had to make the characters females? That made me facepalm SO HARD I gave myself a headache. Males would fit these characters, particularly Ami. She's the tomboy. I only know ONE male character on this show, who is this weird ***ed guy who is ugly and not fit for a male at all. Why does anime always have to be directed towards females? It makes me sick and disgraced as a male. Luckily males are less likely to get hurt and more males are born each year. Males are also better at rapping routines. Anyways, let's move on to the backgrounds, shall we? The backgrounds are very ugly and look like the backgrounds on Dexter's Lab, Powerpuff Girls, Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends, My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic, and Littlest Pet Shop. I really hate the backgrounds and how they're not drawn correctly. It looks like a mixture of Ren and Stimpy and Spongebob's backgrounds, which is NOT a very good mix at all. This show was a very bad show, and I would have given it a 0, but the rate scale doesn't go that low.moreless
