Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this series is based on the real Japanese pop duo Puffy AmiYumi, but that's where the similarity ends. The girls are opposite with their moods, one eternally happy and the other a gloomy rocker chick. It's a smart premise, but with weak writing and little depth, few valuable lessons are added to the series.
