Status: Partially Found

Akazukin Chacha (赤ずきんチャチャ Akazukin Chacha, lit. "Red Riding Hood Chacha") is a shōjo manga series by Min Ayahana. It was serialized by Shueisha in the manga magazine Ribon from 1991 and 2000 and collected in 13 bound volumes. The series follows the adventures of a fumbling student magician named Chacha, who habitually wears a red hooded cloak, as she seeks the truth about her family and defend the kingdom against its enemies. It was adapted into an anime television series by Gallop, first broadcast on TV Tokyo in 74 episodes from 7 January 1994 to 30 June 1995. This was followed by a sequel OVA series of three episodes released between 6 December 1995 and 6 March 1996. In 1998, Cartoon Network aired an English dub of the anime in Southeast Asia and Mandarin-speaking countries. The dub has changed some of the character's names, such as Orin to Suzu.

Availability[edit | edit source]

Some fan websites of the show have some recorded voice clips from the English Dub. Full episodes were not found, though. Fortune City and Stellaris' site had some voice Clips recorded from the English Dub of the show. Some of the clips are uploaded on YouTube but are very hard to find. LindenHikari and Nymphe Theotokoi has uploaded some English Dub Voice clips on YouTube. Still, the very vague video titles make those clips very difficult to find on YouTube, they were taken from the two websites above. ThatEarthBounder has compiled the clips from Fortune City, Seou's site and Stellaris' site. It was not released on home video officially after its runtime on Cartoon Network in 2000. Currently, there's no information about the English dub's voice cast.

UPDATE: 7/7/18[edit | edit source]

A torrent that had episodes 48-52 and 55 of the English dub on Google, though it seems not to be downloadable, it claims to be an English dub, and the English Dub intro and ending is only the same as the original version of the anime. A person in geocities.ws seems to have an existence of a tape with episodes 61-65 in the English Dub, not sure where it is now and if he is still in possession of it. Another person on Gamefaqs seems to have hold of the English Dub but claims that it has mould on it, not sure if he has a hold of it today or completely lost it and threw it away. Also, I don't know if the channels with the same username is the same person since I got no response from my comment after a few days, I ended up deleting it since he doesn't seem to respond to my comment. It seems like the only way for people to have the English Dub is from recording on a VHS tape since the series in the English Dub was not released on home video after it has stopped airing.

UPDATE: 4/2/2020[edit | edit source]

The YouTube Channel, ZPBander has uploaded the preview of Cartoon Network English Dub on Mar 28, 2020. On March 30, 2020 the user has uploaded the first episode. A few hours on the same day after he uploaded the first episode he said he didn't have the 2nd episdoe but he did have episode 15. A day later on April 2nd, he replied to the same comment that he has episodes 53, 59, 64, 67, 72 and 73. When it comes to this case for the English dub, all text and credits remained in Japanese, so unfortunately the cast and people responsible for this dub were not listed. The version of Kimi Iro Omo used was the brodcast version by SMAP for the English Dub, unfortunately the user did not use the DVD version due to strict copyright on that version.
