The colors in this are bright and cheery, and the dialogue can get rather childish and goofy at some points. Not that this is a bad thing--these girls are still in junior high, so they are making the transition out of childhood. The designs for the wedding dresses and the 'armored' outfits are top notch and gorgous to look at, which is a definite plus.
There are six episodes on this dvd; this is a bonus considering that many dvds only have two or three episodes for the same price. And while there are not many extras, just the usual clean opening/closing animation, I still felt I got my money's worth with this dvd.
I saw these episodes a few years back on fansub, and loved them. I had always thought that there must be more to the story, since the girls had not had a chance to do anything (and I knew that another heroine was coming), but the video store only had the two tapes. Imagine my excitement when I found out that there are other volumes after this one! So I am eagerly awaiting the second dvd, not just because it has new episodes I've never seen, but in the hopes that my favorite character will (finally) arrive....
I have also read the translated manga, and I recommend that as well.
All in all, I suggest you get this dvd if you are into shows like Sailor Moon, Revolutionary Girl Utena, or any other type of magical girl show. You will not be disappointed. Both the dub and sub versions of Wedding Peach are good, though I tend to watch the Japanese version cause its what I saw first and think is better. But you can make your own decision.
1. Saint Tail, which was released by Tokyopop and remains one of my all-time favorite anime.
2. Hime-chan no Ribon, my other favorite Mahou Shoujo series, which I still hope will someday be licensed.
3. Wedding Peach, the title you are currently looking at.
It's easy to judge Wedding Peach. After following on Sailor Moon's heels as one of the first Mahou Shoujo anime to feature combat, Wedding Peach appears to have nothing original to offer. But Wedding Peach not only equals it's predecessor, Sailor Moon--it rises above and beyond it. Whereas Sailor Moon would often (tragically) sucuumb to it's own sentai-inspired "monster-per-day" formula, Wedding Peach provides a much faster-paced and far more detailed plot line. Taking inspiration from Shakespeare, Christianity and Roman Mythology, Wedding Peach interweaves heartfelt, touching romance and a battle of epic proportions. It also features beautiful character designs by Kazuko Tadano, who also character designed Sailor Moon. Wedding Peach's visuals, however, far outdo Sailor Moon's--as a look at the box will tell you. Wedding Peach, of course, features it's own share of filler episodes, silly quirks and light comedy, but even these episodes shine above most of Sailor Moon's equivalents.
Wedding Peach is an absolute must-have for fans of the mahou shoujo genre, or fans of romantic anime at all. This is one series that--though it starts slow--is sure not to disappoint.

At first glance, Wedding Peach seems to be a lower budget rip-off of Sailor Moon.Read more
