PostSubject: Himitsu no Akko-chan (ひみつのアッコちゃん )   Sun Aug 16, 2015 4:14 am

Himitsu no Akko-chan (ひみつのアッコちゃん The Secret of Akko-chan) is a pioneering magical girl manga and anime that ran in Japan during the 1960s.









The manga was drawn and written by Fujio Akatsuka, and was published in Ribon from 1962 to 1965. It predates the Mahōtsukai Sunny (whose name became Sally in the Mahōtsukai Sally anime) manga, printed in 1966. However, that title is the first magical girl anime as Himitsu no Akko-chan was not broadcast until 1969.




The original anime ran for 94 episodes from 1969 to 1970. It was animated by Toei Animation and broadcast by TV Asahi (then known as NET). It has been remade twice, in 1988 (61 episodes, featuring Mitsuko Horie in the role of Akko-chan and singing the opening and ending themes) and in 1998 (44 episodes). Four movies were produced. "Circus Da Ga Yattekita" in 1969, "Namida no Kaiten Receive" in 1970 and "Himitsu no Akko-chan Movie" and "Umi da! Obake da!! Natsu Matsuri" both were released in 1989. It also adapted into a live action film released in September 1, 2012




Plots:

While each remake has small differences, the basic premise is always the same.




Atsuko "Akko-chan" Kagami (known variously as "Stilly," "Caroline," or "Julie" in Western versions of the anime) is an energetic elementary school girl who has an affinity for mirrors. One day, her favorite mirror which was given to Akko by her mother (or in some versions, by her father, as a present from India) is broken, and she prefers to bury it in her yard rather than throw it to the trash can. In her dreams, she is contacted by a spirit (or in some cases the Queen of the Mirror Kingdom) who is touched that the little girl would treat the mirror so respectfully and not simply throw it away. Akko-chan is then given the gift of a magical mirror and taught enchantments, "tekumaku mayakon, tekumaku mayakon" and "lamipus lamipus lu lu lu lu lu," that will allow her to transform into anything she wishes.




All incarnations of the series follow the same premise. Atsuko "Akko-chan" Kagami, is an energetic elementary schoolgirl who has an affinity for mirrors. One day, her favorite mirror, which was given to Akko by her mother (or in some versions, by her father), is broken, and she prefers to bury it in her yard rather than throw it to the trash can. She is then contacted by a spirit (or in some cases the Queen of the Mirror Kingdom) in her dreams who is touched that the little girl would treat the mirror so respectfully, and gifts her with a magical mirror that allows her to transform into anything and anyone she wants, sometimes copying their abilities too.




A live-action movie was released on 1st September 2012 to celebrate the manga's 50th birthday. In the movie, Akko-chan attempts to save a company which is about to be sold by using her transformation abilities. She also falls in love as a 22-year-old college student.

Well, leaving the fact that she is my hero for being able to "Megaman" what she wants, she friends is one of the FIRST transformations we ever had! For the transforming type; she predates Cutey Honey by about half a decade (by comparison, Sally from Mahou Tsukai Sally was a "magical girl", but she just had magical powers).So we kinda owe her a lot. I'm still looking for all version:

1969(not all are subbed):

There's no change reflected in my clean eyes along the roadside.
A whirlwind has coiled around my wrists
Making a vow to the wounds I got from my past self.



The blue sky is wrapped in grey
I've waited impatiently as the wind caresses my shoulders and ask:

'Who are the rivals who are allies with others?'
It's easier than being afraid
So I run, striking out my fists again
Driving away the 'loneliness' lodged in my heart.
