Based on the Peach Girl manga released by TOKYOPOP
Momo Adachi, a high school teen, is best known for her tan skin and bleached hair. Misjudged by her classmates as a wild party girl, Momo is a modest, lonely girl, who only has dark skin and bleached hair as a result of her long hours of dedication on the swim team. Struggling to fit into her new school, Momo finds herself befriended to a backstabber, pursued by a playboy, and seemingly unable to catch the eye of the guy shes crushed on for years.

That's pretty much what the first volume of Peach Girl is about and from the looks of it, it's not going to get much deeper than this. Sae is the villain of the piece and you sense that she's going to try bigger and crazier plans to bring pain to Momo throughout the series. Sometimes the lies Sae tells seem a bit farfetched and it's hard to swallow that Toji would fall for it over and over again. But it's hard not to believe gossip about the one that you love. All it takes is one serpent to make you doubt the world. The thing that I did like about Peach Girl was that all the feelings between the characters were pretty much out in the open by the end of the first five episodes. A lot of shojo drags things out for a whole series, culminating with the get together of the two romantic leads. In this series, declaring love was the easy part. It's the aftermath of the declaration that Sae is trying to sabotage. Sae seems a little one dimensional because it hasn't been explained why she is the way she is. I doubt she does the things she does simply because she's evil. Hopefully, we'll get a little more background on not only her, but the other characters as well. At this point, they seem to exist in a vacuum. A nice start but the characterization could use some work.
The animation in this series is pretty good. The voice acting is as well. I've always liked Cherami Leigh. She's not the main character, but she's great. The soundtrack in this is also very fitting. It's a very drama and it keeps you wanting more. I highly recommend it. Especially to a younger teenage audience.
This anime especially is cute and would be suitable for preteens/teens. A lot of anime is sexual or violent...in this one thus far the most I have seen is fighting between girls which isn't very violent. Also what I like is they make a big deal about kissing (treating it as serious as sex). There is no sex really in it, at one point a guy busts in the gym and hugs a girl while shes wearing bra/panties and a towel but they make a big deal about that too
All in all I love this Anime and do highly recommend it!
