"Japanese duo Puffy AmiYumi are more than just a chart topping group... They are, quite simply, a cultural phenomenon." Their official site puts it well. Surely you've reached the heights of coolness when you're made into a Cartoon Network cartoon series. And with all the merchandise that the cartoon spawned, these girls are like living, breathing Hello Kitty dolls! Having spent some Saturday afternoons watching it, I must say it's quite an entertaining series. It's Josie and The Pussycats for the 21st century.

But when it comes to their music, I think they sound better on their original Japanese albums than the English soundtrack for the cartoon series. This is a cover of an classic hit by Japanese group The Chanels.
