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 defends the kingdom against its enemies. It was adapted into an anime television series by Gallop, first broadcast on TV Tokyo in 74 episodes from January 7th, 1994, to June 30th, 1995. This was followed by a sequel OVA series of three episodes released between December 6th, 1995 and March 6th, 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. Said dub was done by Creative Products in the Philippines & was reportedly recorded sometime in 1996.


Fan websites Fortune City and Stellaris' site had some voice clips recorded from the English dub of the show.[1] Some of the voice clips were uploaded to YouTube by users LindenHikari and Nymphe Theotokoi, but the videos have vague titles that make them hard to find on YouTube. A user on the Chacha Wikia compiled the clips from Fortune City and Stellaris' site, as well as another site from another user named Seou. The English dub has not been released on home media officially after its runtime on Cartoon Network in 2000. Currently, there is no information about the voice cast for the English dub outside of Doinks Seiko voicing ChaCha, nor has any episode been released in full.

On July 7th, 2018, a torrent was discovered on Google that contained episodes 48-52 and 55 of the English dub, though it couldn't be downloaded until very recently. The torrent claims to be the English dub, but that claim seems dubious. A user from Geocities claims to have a tape with episodes 61-65 of the English dub, though the user does not know where the tape is now. Another user on Gamefaqs claims to have English dub episodes but also confirms that since the tape had mold on it, he might have thrown it away.

On March 28th, 2020, YouTube user ZPBander uploaded a preview of the English dub. 2 days later, the user uploaded the first episode. A few hours after the first episode was released, ZPBander posted a reply to one of the comments claiming not to have the 2nd episode but has instead the 15th episode. On April 2nd, 2020, he replied to the same comment stating that he has episodes 53, 59, 64, 67, 72, and 73. As of April 9th, 2020, ZPBander has uploaded 5 episodes from the English dub.

According to YouTube user pacer1705, the channel had 2 marathons of the series in an unspecified year, one happening in June, & another one in December during the school holidays. Allegedly, the episodes aired out of order, though that has yet to be confirmed.

On February 2nd, 2020 DanAdamKOF uploaded a Tweet regarding a couple of tapes they have with the dub, but he needed a PAL VHS player so they could rip them. Reportedly, they still have the commercials on the tapes. According to him, the dub aired in syndication there, meaning that it possibly also aired on different channels.[2]
