This design was drawn originally with Anchor colours in my program. Use anchor threads to get the closest match. I used a conversion chart to get the DMC numbers.

Please let me know if any colours are off and I will amend them in the chart.  

I was so sceptical when I heard of the Powerpuff Girls Z. I loved the original Powerpuff Girls as a kid and wasn't too sure about this version.
But its alright in the end. Turns out that this version is actually rather charming. It follows many conventions of magical girl mangas while still keeping the spirit of each one of the characters.

Although its best not to take any science mentioned in the show seriously at all. I couldn't find much that made sense, just pretend it does and enjoy the colourful action instead.

The original Powerpuff Girls series was created by animator Craig McCracken and produced by Cartoon Network Studios for Cartoon Network.
However the new manga is written by Shiho Komiyuno.
