Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Mindless but funny parody of the anime genre

I only got to see a few episodes of this during it's run on Nicktoons. Even though I'm an anime fan, I still loved this show despite poking fun at many anime shows. From the episodes I seen, there was a Yu-Gi-Oh like character sporting the Yugi hair except even more spikier and taller, an evil Hello Kitty, the LilyMu parts seem to parody Tenchi Muyo in some ways with Guano seeming to parody Ryo-Ohki and Pikachu. The fact that I knew ALOT of the shows being poked fun at just made it even funnier. It's kinda like an American made Hetalia Axis: Powers made for anime genres since each character is an exaggerated anime arch-type (Guano is your furry monster side kick, Lily is your over the top Tsundere, Gonard is your lovably stupid muscle head, etc...) I found myself amused as it's like a kid friendly version of Drawn Together which I pretend doesn't exist...
