Momoi is playing the role of "the original" Wonder Momo, who is the mom of the "current" Wonder Momo in the new anime.

http://wondermomo.jp/

The anime is based off the western web comic:
http://www.shiftylook.com/comics/wondermomo
The production is very international, including the video game tie in.
In fact, some of my friends worked on the new video game :)
Kind of surprising they still don't make the ports of the original game available outside of Japan on the virtual console if they want to market overseas. But I guess there must be lots of red tape.
Funnily enough, the comic features lots of snappy dialog that I fear will be lost in the translation to Japanese. (I'm sure most of us are more used to the other way around.)

Some fans are a little annoyed they aren't pushing Momoi's involvement in the official promotion / talk shows. (She isn't even listed on the official website.) http://momo-itimes.hateblo.jp/entry/2014/02/08/023254
Kind of surprising, cause I think many young people first knew about Wonder Momo through Momoi's song in Taiko no Tatsujin, or from fan videos of the song on Nico Nico Douga.

Personally I thought the character designs reminded me a bit of another show Momoi was in... Ryusei Sentai Musumet :-X

I didn't see the show yet, so no official comments from me :-X

Momoi's character is finally gonna finally come in ep 3.
http://live.nicovideo.jp/watch/lv169199708
(Apparently the English ver will air every "thrusday" at 19:30 on Crunchyroll. http://wondermomo.jp/en/movie/)
http://www.crunchyroll.com/wonder-momo/videos
(Considering that this is an international project, you'd think the English website would be localized a little better... :P)

Judging by what I read of the comic, her chara may get some interesting scenes ;D
But as I feared, the anime kinda loses the humor of the comic :-\

I watched the first episode, I thought it was a little disappointing.

Also I thought : eeeeeh! where is momoi ?? this show needs Wonder Momo-i as a opening theme!!
I was afraid because I don't watch Momoi's name on the official website!

finally Momoi will do the role of the original wonder momo? so... I  will continue watching :3!!

Momoi was in ep 3, though just the very end ;D Seems like more to come in the next ep.
I hope it's gonna include the flashback to when she was the first Wonder Momo with the scenes and outfits from the original game.
