This show manages the impressive feat of applying a LighterAndSofter tone to a pseudo-series that was ''already'' pretty light and soft to begin with. In this case, it cut the over-the-top style of parody in favor of more FantasticComedy DomCom style. Washu still has some shades of her pseudo-AxCrazy characterization, but it gets considerably toned down after her introduction. Because of this, the series most likely won't appeal to people that were expecting a continuation of the parody style, but for those that want a magical girl show of the more traditional kind, this is as good as any.

* CoversAlwaysLie: The posters and EyeCatch heavily emphasize the magical girl outfits, but the girls rarely if ever wear them. In fact, their stated purpose at the beginning is to ''suppress'' the girls powers!

* CerberusSyndrome: While the first season focuses mostly on character interaction, cute moments, and comedy, the second season deals with a developing conspiracy, a main character's FaceHeelTurn, ''the world nearly being destroyed'', and a pretty BittersweetEnding. It's still not entirely dark, however.

Re-imagining of the 1996 AffectionateParody ''Anime/PrettySammy'' series as a 2006 cookie cutter MagicalGirl {{anime}} of the CuteWitch variety. Sasami Iwakura is a young girl with magical powers of a telekinetic type that her parents forbid her from using. This has lead to her feeling isolated due to a belief of herself as some sort of freak. One day, she goes to the newly formed cooking club headed by Washu, a rather eccentric teacher that starts the club off by faking an attempt to kill her pet. After some [[HilarityEnsues hilarity]], it turns out that the cooking club is a front for the magical girls club, with Sasami and Misao as the first members. Through this club, they meet more awakening magical girls and discover a {{masquerade}} involving a magical world.
