Cyber Team in Akihabara (アキハバラ電脳組)

Cyber Team in Akihabara (アキハバラ電脳組 Akihabara Dennō Gumi) is an anime series created by Tsukasa Kotobuki and Satoru Akahori. Its genre can be best described as being a fusion of the magical girl, mecha and moe anime genres. The television series aired from April 4, 1998 to September 26, 1998 on TBS and ran for 26 episodes. It was released in the United States by ADV Films. A 1-hour featured animation film of the series was subsequently released in Japan entitled Cyber Team in Akihabara: Summer Days of 2011; unlike the series the film was produced by Production I.G. The show has an array of characters, many of whom are named after birds, gods, and real-myth villains, literally.
The anime starts with the adventures of twelve-year-old junior high school student Hibari Hanakoganei, who, like any girl, lives in Tokyo in the year 2010 and aspires to have a mobile pet of her own, called a "Pata-Pi." During this time, PataPies are trendy and there is a nationwide craze in owning one. Simply buy one, upgrade it with pre-set or custom parts, and show it off to friends and relatives! However, Hibari has no money to buy one and can only admire her best friend, Suzume, as she flamboyantly praises her PataPi ,Francesca.
