Trivia / Akazukin Chacha

  • Celebrity Voice Actor: Riiya is voiced by Shingo Katori from the Boy Band SMAP, who were also the original performers of the opening theme, "Kimi Iro Omoi."
  • Follow the Leader: In the manga, which came out a year before Sailor Moon, Chacha is a fairly standard Cute Witch. In the anime, which came out two years after Sailor Moon, she's been given a blinged-out Transformation Trinket and a sparkly Stock Footage-tastic Transformation Sequence that briefly turns her into a textbook Magical Girl Warrior so she can take down the Monster of the Week. The Magical Girl Warrior sections come and go so quickly and feel so incongruent when compared with the rest of the show that one can only assume the producers added this aspect to cash in on the recent success of Miss Moon.

  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: Want to find the anime? Well, you can find it on DVD, & all the episodes are on Website/Youtube. Looking for the English dub that aired on Cartoon Network in Southeast Asia however? Good luck as no home media releases of that dub have surfaced, & this dub seems to have never aired anywhere else. Apparently, another English dub aired in Singapore, but no info has surfaced other than it aired on Okto(A.K.A. Channel i).
  • Name's the Same: Yakko shares her name with one of the Warner siblings, which caused this crossover fanart to pop up a while ago (although the artist said that her main motivation was because both shows feature "a trio of kids doing silly things")
    • Referee Shin who appears whenever the plot calls for a magic duel to be overseen by a referee is not be confused with Crayon Shin-chan
  • Shout-Out: Beyond Birthday, the Villain Protagonist of Another Note, admits he was a big fan of Akazukin Chacha when he was younger. He spends an entire paragraph gushing over it when taking note of manga found in a victim's home, and purposely leaves a clue in one of the books.

  • "Weird Al" Effect: Because of the above-mentioned BB, lots of readers of that novel, upon finding out that the series is indeed real, decided to check it out for themselves.
