Little Ichigo wants a different dad; her stepfather doesn't seem to love her, and makes her mother cry. So when Ichigo meets a fairy named Cappy she wishes that her mother would have married her biological father, transporting her into the past where she must become her parents' matchmaker! But Kyousuke, her real father, isn't the only one after her mother's heart. Now Ichigo must try to get the shy, bumbling Kyousuke to prevail over the outgoing, confident Yuuji, for the fate of her family!
This is a super adorable series, and the ending is brilliant. This is definitley one you have to watch all the way through to fully appreciate, which given it's only 75 minutes in total shouldn't be too much of a stretch. The story itself isn't too original, but I still liked it. It's certainly very well executed, and the great characters certainly help it feel pretty new. The main character, Ichigo, is actually quite three dimensional character. To me, she felt more like an actual child rather than a character, which was great. The biological father is a shy and frankly pretty adorable character, as is the mother. The step father is one of those characters you will probably either like or hate by the end. And her friend's family - dear god they are the best. There needs to be more secondary characters like them. As I mentioned before, the ending of this series is great. In fact, I probably wouldn't have rated this series as highly had it not been for that. Make sure if you do watch it, you stick it out to the end. This is a great series if you fancy something cute, fairly emotional and with good characters. Review for February 2017 DAMC
It may be another MOE series, but it has its treasures. It has a nice animation (the brightness is cute). Ichigo is a girl who doesn't get along with her stepfather, and then, she goes back to the past to try to fix things making her father getting married with her mother, that is the story. It is simple, but it is nice to watch. Ichigo is just a Moee kid, although she is too mature for her age, she is still a kid, she cries, and is most of time annoying, but somehow i learnt to love her. Kyosuke (her real father) is a funny character, Yuji (stepfather) may be annoying in the beginning, but the story shows his true personality. I recommend this show for those who like a short and funny story with a little of drama.
