PostSubject: Wedding Peach   Sat Jun 27, 2015 7:40 pm

So, has anyone here ever watched or read Wedding Peach? Here's the MAL link, for those of you curious.

I've read the manga, and watched the entire anime, so I can safely say: Don't bother with the anime. It is nowhere near as good as the manga. The manga makes so much more sense, and I found it to be a lot of fun. It's nothing special, but it has that 90's feel that I love. The wedding theme is cute, if a bit silly.

The anime, on the other hand, took the plot points from the manga, and...did them in such a stupid way, I honestly couldn't believe what I was watching. Not to mention, the Wedding Peach DX OVA is full of really creepy fanservice that was honestly uncalled for. If there's one thing that the anime is good for, however, it's the art. It looks really similar to Sailor Moon... If what I read is true, a lot of the same animators from the classic Sailor Moon anime worked on Wedding Peach. Plus, the anime's outfits were so good, the author incorporated them into the manga as an upgrade.  Laugh

I've never read the manga or watched the anime. I always been curious about the series, but a lot people online bash it. So I'm not sure what to make of this series.

From what I've seen on Tumblr, people bash it because of heteronormativity... And it's true, for a series that's based on romantic love, every single couple seen is straight. Mad I will admit, that is a huge problem with the series.

That and I've seen people say it's too similar to Sailor Moon... That's probably because of the art style, though, because honestly the story itself is nothing like Sailor Moon.

Oh, I see! 

I think most magical girl shows from the 90s and early 2000s get bashed on because of Sailor Moon. 

I do love romance so I may give it a try. Especially since it's from the 90s. I bet it's pure cheese.

With the anime, the dub is even cheesier than the sub. It's not like a super edited dub, it's pretty faithful and keeps the Japanese openings, but the voice acting... Dear God the voice acting is terrible. Especially the one villain, Potamos. Her catchphrase was so annoying I wanted to punch her every time she was on screen. (Interestingly, she has the same voice actor as Usagi in the Japanese version.)

Wedding Peach's speech is so ridiculous, too: "I am the Love Angel, I am Wedding Peach, and I am EXTREMELY angry with you!"

YES PURE CHEESE!!

God I love 90s English dubs. They are filled to the max with cheese.

I've seen all of the anime and currently making my way through the manga- the manga is much better than the anime ver. so far, but overall I have a love-hate relationship with Wedding Peach

but the thing that bothers me the most about it is that the 3 girls say they're all best friends, but then backstab each other and just be with Yanagiba (who by the way has no personality imo) or act really impatient and cross with each other even just hanging out. Yuri even says a line "In the end, love really does come before friendship" like what the heck?!

aside from the cool power ups, wedding peach dx was pretty unnecessary. It's like they started making the sequel, but the sponsors pulled the plug, so they had to scramble to put it direct-to-video and added some fanservice as insentive for older audiences to buy it

The friendship between the three girls bothered me a lot at first... It says they've been friends for years but I do kind of get the impression that they only became friends recently because they're all in the newspaper club. I did feel, in the manga at least, that they became better friends through their shared experiences as Love Angels, so I liked that. And it also helps that they all got separate love interests in the end, so the conflict with Yanagiba was resolved peacefully.

Yeah, DX was awful. They never really explain why they have upgrades, or what they've been doing since the end of the series. The fanservice was what really put me off, though... Especially in the last episode.

It has been a long while since I read Wedding Peach.  So I decided to reread the series and I've completed the first chapter.  

So far this is what I think.  I really like the whole idea behind the four scared somethings, the angels, the demons, and Aphrodite.  I also like her compact/mirror.  I think it's cute.  

I didn't care for the scared camera.  It's kind of an odd weapon but then it has been a while since I read it.  Don't know if she uses it again or what other purpose it might have.

The sacred camera was that wand she used to purify things, right? I remember it from the anime, but I could never quite make out what the voice actress was saying when she called it. (I had no choice but to watch the dub.)

The weirdest weapon in this goes to Angel Lily, though... Saint Lipliner... Whaaat? Laugh

I continued reading and now the scared camera became sacred mirror.  Don't know if it was translated wrong or what.   bunnydizzy 

Angel Lily's lipliner whip thingy came out.  Similar to Sailor Venus Love Me Chain and Daisy's blizzard is similar to Jupiter's Flower Hurricane.  So far I see similarities between Sailor Moon and Wedding Peach.

I watched the Wedding Peach Anime and read the Manga series too. I really love the Wedding Peach series and it's one of my all time favorite Magical Girl Anime and Manga series along with Sailor Moon. It's too bad that Wedding Peach is very underrated and not that well known like Sailor Moon, but I know that Wedding Peach is a very good series though. As for Wedding Peach DX I agree with a lot of people that there is way too much fanservice in that OVA at least for two episodes and that the fanservice is very unnecessary, plus to be honest the 1st and 4th episodes were really strange while the 2nd and 3rd episodes are actually pretty good. Wedding Peach DX could have been a whole lot better without the fanservice and that it would be a lot more like the main series. The good thing is that Wedding Peach DX is not canon to the Manga since the OVA is something that the Anime creators wanted to create and to have some type of continuation for the Wedding Peach Anime even though Wedding Peach DX is not canon. Even the Wedding Peach specials/omakes are not canon either and they were also strange, but not as strange as the 1st and 4th episodes of Wedding Peach DX. The only thing I actually love about Wedding Peach DX are the transformations because the outfits look really amazing and I love that they are able to transform into their Fighting Angel outfits quickly, plus I also love that they have angel wings too.
