Originally created as the mascot of a gaming store in Japan, Dejiko is
an adorable (surprise!) 10-year-old alien from the planet Di Gi Charat.
She looks mostly human, except for her cat ears and tail. Her closest
companions are a two-dimensional floating smiley face named Gema, and
another alien from her planet, a five-year-old named Puchiko who also
sports ears and tail and has her own two-dimensional companion. Their
adventures revolve around the store Dejiko was created for, Gamers, and
the final member of their crowd is a co-worker, a human girl named
Rabi-en-Rose with rabbit ears who wears a uniform reminiscent of a
French maid outfit. Dynamic b&w sketches depict the heroines'
adventures, which center around the trials of being working girls with
limited free time and meager funds. Readers see them frolic on the beach
and witness the girls' difficulty in coming up with new Gamer
merchandise. They follow Dejiko as she pretends to have a personality
change and coaches Puchiko through practicing her laser eye beam skills.
Those yearning to delve deeply into all things Dejiko will be
delighted, as much of the book is devoted to the minutiae of her history
and personality. The book includes the first strips she appeared in and
a calendar of pithy sayings featuring all the characters. Diagrams
explain their personality traits, and a lengthy translation key reveals
the nuances of Japanese terms used in the work. Despite its playfulness,
this work should have narrow appeal; it's strictly for hardcore fans
and readers interested in the origins of new characters.
