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


The anime is based off the western web comic:
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.
(Apparently the English ver will air every "thrusday" at 19:30 on Crunchyroll. http://wondermomo.jp/en/movie/)
(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.
