[I would probably give this 4 1/2 stars, if it were an option]
At first glance, Wedding Peach seems to be a lower budget rip-off of Sailor Moon. The main character, Momoko, or Wedding Peach, is a clutzy junior high school girl who sleeps late and likes to eat. She uses a brooch to transform, and the transformation scenes and attacks are very reminiscent of Sailor Moon. However...
There is a reason why we liked Sailor Moon. It was cute, it was quirky, it was entertaining. Sure, we always knew what would happen...eventually, Sailor Moon would conquer the bad guys by joining together with her friends, and believing in the power of love. But we still watched it, and we still loved it. So why not love Wedding Peach as well? Different characters, slightly different plot (Raindevilla is out to destroy all of the love in the world instead of collecting rainbow crystals, or finding the imperium silver crystal, or the pure heart, or whatever the fourth season was about), but it is still the formula we love!
Although I've only seen the 1st DVD (which contains 6 episodes!!), it already seems to me that Wedding Peach will not be quite the same "enemy of the day" as Sailor Moon. Or at least, the enemy doesn't seem as if it will be presented in the same way every time. Also, the story line seems to move a little more quickly; we have already met THREE Wedding angels, seen Jama-P go from bad to good (we hope!) AND met Momoko's possible love interest. One of the things I always thought was a bit of a down side to Sailor Moon was that there were just SO MANY episodes, and the story moved SO SLOWLY!
All in all, if you liked Sailor Moon, or any other magical girl anime, give Wedding Peach a try. Otherwise, this won't be up your alley at all.

...and attack with rings, lipstick, a watch, and a bouquet. Not your ordinary weapons, even for a magical girl series. But it's true. And actually works pretty well. But be expected to hear sap every few seconds. The heroines get their powers from the greatness of love and their dreams of getting married. The villains are demons looking to harness the power of love through the Sacred Four Somethings (which are four items that a woman is supposed to wear in a Western-type marriage--they will supposedly bring her happiness). Of course, once the demons have the Four Somethings, then they plan to destroy them and wipe out love altogether. Wedding Peach and her pals plan to stop that.
The colors in this are bright and cheery, and the dialogue can get rather childish and goofy at some points. Not that this is a bad thing--these girls are still in junior high, so they are making the transition out of childhood. The designs for the wedding dresses and the 'armored' outfits are top notch and gorgous to look at, which is a definite plus.
There are six episodes on this dvd; this is a bonus considering that many dvds only have two or three episodes for the same price. And while there are not many extras, just the usual clean opening/closing animation, I still felt I got my money's worth with this dvd.
I saw these episodes a few years back on fansub, and loved them. I had always thought that there must be more to the story, since the girls had not had a chance to do anything (and I knew that another heroine was coming), but the video store only had the two tapes. Imagine my excitement when I found out that there are other volumes after this one!

There are three series that I have always wanted to see released in the US:
1. Saint Tail, which was released by Tokyopop and remains one of my all-time favorite anime.
2. Hime-chan no Ribon, my other favorite Mahou Shoujo series, which I still hope will someday be licensed.
3. Wedding Peach, the title you are currently looking at.
It's easy to judge Wedding Peach. After following on Sailor Moon's heels as one of the first Mahou Shoujo anime to feature combat, Wedding Peach appears to have nothing original to offer. But Wedding Peach not only equals it's predecessor, Sailor Moon--it rises above and beyond it. Whereas Sailor Moon would often (tragically) sucuumb to it's own sentai-inspired "monster-per-day" formula, Wedding Peach provides a much faster-paced and far more detailed plot line. Taking inspiration from Shakespeare, Christianity and Roman Mythology--three of the great western canons, incidentally--Wedding Peach interweaves heartfelt, touching romance and a battle of epic proportions. It also features beautiful character designs by Kazuko Tadano, who also character designed Sailor Moon. Wedding Peach's visuals, however, far outdo Sailor Moon's--as a look at the box will tell you. Wedding Peach, of course, features it's own share of filler episodes, silly quirks and light comedy, but even these episodes shine above most of Sailor Moon's equivalents.
Wedding Peach is an absolute must-have for fans of the mahou shoujo genre, or fans of romantic anime at all. This is one series that--though it starts slow--is sure not to disappoint.
