DVD of the Day #29 - Hamtaro - Ham Hams Head Seaward

Yay Hamtaro! Such a cute little cartoon. I remember watching Hamtaro through fansubs back in 2000 or so before it hit the US and I never thought it would come to the US. But hey, it did and when it hit American airwaves it exploded with popularity. Alas, thanks to Viz’s bad management said explosion dried up almost as quickly as it hit. it’s too bad, as Hamtaro was a great cartoon for small children and there’s yet to be a Hamtaro video game short of amazing.

This second volume (of six) of Hamtaro cartoons contains three episodes from the anime. I’m disappointed that there are only three episodes per DVD and that two of the volumes are exceedingly rare (About $50 used on ebay, but thankfully I own them), but all the episodes are whimiscal and fun, regardless of your age. Okay, well they’re not fun if you’re looking for sex and violence, but if you’re looking for something wholesome and cute here you go. Out of the 296 Hamtaro episodes, only 104 are in English and 18 are in English. Maybe someday Viz will actually do seasons or more volumes, but for now Ham-Ham fans are stuck with these limited DVD’s

The episodes include:

Come Out Bijou: This episode is basically about the Ham-Ham’s curing Bijou’s agoraphobia. Yes. Seriously.

Diamonds of Sugar: Hamtaro wants to eat human candy but he can’t because humans won’t let him. Bijou also wants human candy but it’s bad for hamsters so she can’t have any either. Together the Ham-Hams try to figure out a way to team up and get candy, but they end up thinking stars are candy and that’s where humans keep it so Hamsters can’t get them.

First Time at the Beach: This is pretty obvious. Hamsters + beach = 22 minutes of cute.

You can get the first four volumes of Hamtaro pretty easily and for cheap. Again, this only an hour long and that’s really disappointing as even obscure animes give you more episodes per disc these days. I’m a bit bitter than the series has yet to be completed in English or the dubbed episodes haven’t been collected as a whole on DVD, but what can you do. Stupid Viz. Worth keeping because it’s all the Hamtaro there is, but it’s still sad that indeed, this is ALL THERE IS.

Still the songs and the ham-ham dance are amazing and make the DVD’s worth owning.


If you don’t find this utterly adorable, then you have no soul.

Is It Worth Keeping? Yes, because there’s no other option for Hamtaro fans.
