CMU's favourite J-pop duo Puffy (because we have favourite J-pop duos here you know) are to star in their own US cartoon show. According to Variety
magazine the duo will appear in 'Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi', a new series duo to be launched on the American Cartoon Network at the end of the year. It will follow Ami and Yumi adventuring from concert to concert, and is set to include live-action segments featuring the real and very wonderful Ami and Yumi.
Puffy aren't new to this whole telly thing. For many years in Japan they hosted 'PaPaPaPa Puffy', their own variety show, and in the last year or so have recorded the theme to American smash cartoon 'Teen Titans' (currently airing in the UK on Toonami).
Elsewhere in Puffy world, Japanese punk label CycleHit Entertainment has
released a Puffy tribute album. The girls' songs are reworked by underground
bands including Noodles, Supersnazz and DJ Taki-shit, the latter of whom was
featured on 'Adam And Joe Go Tokyo!' last year wearing a long-nosed mask
over his little fella (yeah, that DJ Taki-shit). The album is out now on import. For more information, contact email@example.com
