‘Guardian Characters‘ and ‘Sergeant Keroro‘ are two Japanese anime series that have been causing a sensation in Japan and Southeast Asian countries.
Both ‘Guardian Characters’ and ‘Sergeant Keroro’ are visually stunning anime adaptations of their immensely popular Japanese manga counterparts. Both have achieved remarkable success, garnering numerous prestigious awards at Japanese anime film festivals.
While ‘Guardian Characters’ is a tale of dreams and the hope to live authentically, ‘Sergeant Keroro’ offers readers a hilarious and entertaining journey with a group of extraterrestrial beings in their comical quest to conquer Earth.
‘Guardian Characters‘ is an anime series centered around the main character, Amu Hinamori, a student at Seiyo Academy. Hinamori is a reserved girl with an incredibly cool exterior, yet she longs to live true to her own personality.
On a fateful night, Hinamori makes a wish to have the courage to be stronger, protect herself, and live as her true self. Her heartfelt wish inadvertently triggers a powerful emotion that awakens the guardian eggs in her heart, hatching into angelic guardians named Ran, Miki, and Su.
However, if the owner is a child filled with worries and doubts, the guardian eggs can transform into X-Eggs and hatch into malevolent X-Characters. These X-Characters often possess far greater strength than their benevolent counterparts and constantly seek to defeat their owner’s positive emotions with negative and hostile thoughts.
Perhaps that’s why X-Characters are always the unpredictable adversaries of the benevolent guardian characters, leading to dramatic struggles between good and evil.
Keroro Gunso is a series that follows a group of extraterrestrial beings led by Sergeant Keroro, a non-commissioned officer and the leader of the Keroro Platoon. This extraterrestrial team has been assigned a mission by the military of Planet Keron to invade Earth. However, an unfortunate mishap involving the rupture of their spacecraft’s shell leaves Keroro stranded on Earth, where he takes temporary refuge in the Hinata family’s home.
Sergeant Keroro is quite the easily distracted character, often spending his time watching anime, surfing the internet, and engaging in various other activities instead of planning Earth’s conquest. Besides Keroro’s laziness, the most significant hindrance to their mission is the Hinata family, a trio that keeps Keroro busy with unreasonable demands and continuous mistreatment, primarily at the hands of the family’s daughter, Natsumi. This leads to the extraterrestrial invasion plan being indefinitely stalled.
