Kirby of the Stars is a story about a creature named Kirby who was destined to crash onto Pop Star and save the people on it from the evil NME. King Dedede wants to get rid of Kirby and constantly orders monsters from NME to do so. These monsters usually cause lots of destruction, but Kirby and his friends always save the day.
It contains a lot of characters from the game series as well as somenew ones. Some events in the show have caused people to make the theory that the games and anime happen in alternate universes. There is no evidence of this theory being true. In fact, the games and the anime have been shown to be linked through several parts of the games.
A lot of the episodes have something to do with actual events that happened on the Earth and can sometimes teach lessons. A lot of Japanese culture was put into it.
Soji Yoshikawa mentioned that he thought the series would fail, just like most video game anime shows. After time, he realized that there was hope. There were lots of challenges too, however. Masahiro Sakurai was one of the main reasons for these challenges because he wouldn't allow any humans or the speaking of Kirby. These challenges were overcome and the anime was loved by many Japanese fans. Unlike most anime, there was twice the amount of frames, fluid movement, and no evidence of laziness as the series went on.When Nintendo decided to make Kirby a "hit" in the US like they did in Japan, they realized that they made a mistake. They spent $10 million dollars, but despite their efforts, the people of the US gave the show poor reviews and ratings. This canceled the sales of Kirby: Right Back at Ya! merchandise, excluding the DVDs. Many Americans blame 4Kids Entertainment for their hatred towards the anime. They took out many things the Japanese version had, including episode orders, something that didn't really matter.
StoryNightmare made a legion of monsters during a time of peace in the galaxy so that he could take it over. Those who loved freedom fought the monsters and called themselves the Star Warriors. After many battles, only one, as far as people knew, remained; Meta Knight. The war was over, and monsters were now up for sale rather than being used for battles. One day, a monster showed up from King Dedede's Castle and ate sheep in Cappy Town. The Cappies asked Kabu for help and he told them of a warrior named Kirby. When the people of Cappy Town saw Kirby, they doubted his abilities. King Dedede hated Kirby the moment he saw him, but that didn't stop Tiff, Tuff, Fololo and Falala from helping Kirby. After defeating the monster, Kirby became a hero and was recognized as a Star Warrior by Meta Knight.
The episodes show Kirby's challenges each day in Dream Land as he trains to defeat Nightmare. Even though the story is like this, watching them in order is important because some story details will not make sense if they are first seen in a later episode.
