Powerpuff Girls Z is the Japanese incarnation of the well known Cartoon Network franchise, the Powerpuff Girls. unlike their western counterparts, the Anime takes place in...
THE CITY... OF TOKYO!
While Professor Utonium and his son, Ken, were trying to study and stabilize the substance known as "Chemical X", a daifuku bun (rice cake) accidentally fell into it, turning the solution into Chemical Z.
Shortly after, a series of bizarre events began to spread across the globe, and Ken imprudently uses the newly formed chemical Z in an attempt to restore order, only to transform 3 regular junior-high school girls ~ Akatsutsumi Momoko (Blossom), Gotokuji Miyako (Bubbles), and Matsubara Kaoru (Buttercup) ~ into transforming, magical girls.
Thus, THE POWERPUFF GIRLS Z ARE BORN!
But even with order restored, monsters begin to appear left and right in the city of Tokyo. Taihen! Peach! The signal!
