''Kidou Shinsengumi Moeyo Ken'' is a four-episode OVA (later a ThirteenEpisodeAnime series) about the (fictional) daughters of the {{Shinsengumi}} fighting as {{Magical Girl}}s in an alternate Meiji-era Japan. This series was created by Ouji Hiroi of Creator/RedEntertainment, with character designs by Creator/RumikoTakahashi.

The Mobile Shinsengumi consists of Yuko Kondo (Isami's daughter), Toshie Hijikata (Toshizo's daughter) and Kaoru Okita (Soji's daughter).Their job is to handle any and all supernatural problems . . . with varying degrees of success. There's also Ryunosuke Sakamoto, whose mother, Oryo, is in charge of the Mobile Shinsengumi, and his bakeneko (cat demon) companion Nekomaru.

-----
!!This series contains examples of:

* ACupAngst: Okita is very sensitive about it.
* ActionGirl: Technically the three main girls in the Mobile Shinsengumi, but they border FauxActionGirl territory because they're not always effective at fighting.
* AllYourBaseAreBelongToUs: After their backstabbing in the last episode, Orya is okay with giving up the Shinsengumi company to Miki. This hilariously backfires on them because they weren't expecting her to just give it up. [[spoiler: Then it turns out that Shinsengumi's stock dropped and owes a lot of money, which Miki is now responsible for.]]
* AmazonBrigade: The Mobile Shinsengumi.
* AnachronismStew: Quite a few robots, cars, and robots in a mid-late 1800's era Japan.
* [[spoiler: AnguishedDeclarationOfLove]]
* ArrangedMarriage: [[spoiler: Ryunosuke to Ranran, who died protecting her, and was given Nekomaru in order to bring him back to life. However, the catch is that he has to marry her.]]
* BalloonBelly: Well, far more than just that, but this is what happens to most of the population of Kyoto (see FetishFuel a couple of lines down for amount of people spared) in episode 11.
* BarbieDollAnatomy: Last episode when Nekomaru gives up the last 3 spirits to resurrect the three main girls.
* BigEater: For a ghost kitty, Nekomaru sure eats a lot.
* BitchInSheepsClothing: Miki.
* BrickJoke: Early on, Yuko comments that Toshie is cold and unfeeling, and might as well be a machine. Episodes later, Toshie sends a robot replica of herself on a mission with the Shinsengumi while she stays at HQ. The robot breaks down, and Yuko thinks that Toshie is a robot. She even says "Oh, Gennai fixed you up!" when she sees the real Toshie later.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: Considering how ineffective the Mobile Shinsengumi is, you have to wonder how they manage to get by most of the time. They do sometimes manage to pull off jobs without destroying half the city first however.
* CallItKarma: The Tsubame-gumi, who assisted Yaba in episode 11 with the hail of nikuman, get hit by the nikuman too. Episode 11 BTW.
* TheCakeIsALie: The "Waist Busting Western Cakes" made with the "Inflating Flower" that work on the same principle as the nikuman.
* CannotSpitItOut: [[spoiler: Okita to Ryunosuke.]]
* ChineseGirl: Ranran.
* ClingyJealousGirl: Takes a while to happen, but once Ranran appears in episode 11, Okita and Kondo both exhibit this trope.
* ConspicuousCG: Most of the vehicles.
* CreditsRunningSequence: Happens in the intro.
* CrossdressingVoices: For Ryunosuke and Nekomaru, obviously.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Many.
* DaChief: Oryo Sakamoto (the widow of Ryoma Sakamoto).
* DeathIsCheap: [[spoiler: Ryunosuke gets killed repeatedly, only to have Nekomaru bring him back right away.]]
* {{Determinator}}: Ryunosuke. Yuko. The Tsubame Gumi.
* DyingDeclarationOfLove: [[spoiler: Okita]] to Ryunosuke.
* EmotionlessGirl: What Yuko sees Toshie as.
* EnemyMine: Miki helps defeat the BigBad in the last episode.
* HairDecorations: Oryou.
* {{Expy}}: Kankan (The panda) looks a lot like [[RanmaOneHalf Genma Saotome]]. Or course, there's no relation to Miki Saotome.
** Toshie looks like a [[GenderBender genderbent]] version of [[InuYasha Sesshomaru]].
** Considering that the person who did the designs was [[RumikoTakahashi Rumiko Takahashi]], neither is surprising.
** The Tsubame Group speaks [[{{Anime/Pokemon}} Team Rocket]] to nearly everyone who watches.
* EyeCatch: Shows the three main girls in a maid outfit, along with Nekomaru
* FantasticRacism: Two minor characters are seen from time to time in a love/hate relationship, and then they finally decide to marry, but the man's mother adamantly refuses to allow the CatGirl to marry him. This serves as a plot point later when Okita asks Ryunosuke's mother, Oryo, if she was okay with a half-monster daughter marrying her son. Oryo's reaction is one of shock shortly after Okita asks it, and she walks away dejectedly. [[spoiler: Unfortunately for her, Oryo wasn't shocked at her question, but rather some cockroaches which were on the wall behind Okita, and apparently didn't hear her question. Later on we find out Oryo's perfectly okay with Okita marrying Ryunosuke if she wanted to marry him.]]
* FieryRedhead: Yuko.
* GadgeteerGenius: Gennai, who seems to be an {{expy}} of [[RanmaOneHalf Dr. Tofu]], and who's inventions don't always work...
* GenderBender: In episode 8, Ryunosuke dies ([[DeathIsCheap Again]]) because of Nekomaru's clumsiness with soap. When Nekomaru uses [[CatsHaveNineLives one of his nine lives]] to revive him, Ryunosuke is in a [[{{Fanservice}} rather]] [[HartmanHips shapely]] [[AbsoluteCleavage woman's]] [[{{Gainaxing}} body]]. With his ModestyTowel only covering his lower half, the boys in the bathouse get [[MaleGaze quite the eyeful]]. Plus, a random guy passing him in the street starts to hit on him, so Ryunosuke does what everybody else would do in his situation: Kindly refuse the offer while explaining that you are actually of the male gend- [[MegatonPunch Oh, who am I kidding?]]
** Why Nekomaru had to use a ''female'' soul to revive him is never explained. But basically the whole episode consists of Ryunosuke trying to cover up his, ahem... ''gifts'', hiding from his teammates, who think he wants to die ([[spoiler: He has to die in order to become a guy again]]), and running from the Tsubame Group, who ''want'' to kill him.
* GirlishPigtails: Kiyomi.
* GivingUpTheGhost: Kondo and Toshie in the last fight.
* {{Gunslinger}}: Both Toshie and her robot double. One of the robot's guns could qualify as a {{BFG}}.
* HalfHumanHybrid: Kaoru, who's [[InvertedTrope mother]] [[HumanMomNonhumanDad was]] [[{{Kitsune}} a kitsune]].
* HeroicBSOD: Oryo suffers from one in episode 2 when Ryunosuke mentions wanting to go back to Shanghai.
* HopelessSuitor: [[spoiler: Okita]] feels like one, particularly once Ranran shows up.
* HotBlooded: Yuko. Oh so much.
* HotSpringsEpisode: Episode 3.
* ImagineSpot: Several of the girls have these.
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: Somewhere around halfway through the series after she stops trying to hook up Ryunosuke with Saiyoko, Kondo seems to also have fallen for him. However, she also realizes that Okita likes him too, so holds back in order to give her a chance to confess to him.
* KarmaHoudini: Miki sure gets away with summoning monsters that trashes the city and [[spoiler: imprisoning and trying to sell them off later.]] They finally get their comeuppance in the last episode however.
* LoveConfession: Okita's mother, disguised as Ryunosuke, gives a false one to Okita to keep her distracted as she tries to steal some items in episode 7. This causes her to develop a crush on Ryunosuke.
* TheMatchmaker: Yuko constantly tries to think of ways to get Ryunosuke and Saiyoko together, so Ryunosuke will stay in Japan and Oryou will be happy.
* MistakenForGay: The three Shinsengumi girls think Ryunosuke isn't interested in women when despite all their attempts at {{Shipping}} him with Saiyoko, and even him seeing them naked doesn't seem to turn him on at all.
* NoblewomansLaugh: Miki does this in just about every one of her appearances.
* NonActionGuy: Ryunosuke. The action is focused mostly around the three main girls, with the occasional interference of Miki's group.
* {{Nosebleed}}: Happens in episode 2 to Ukon after the octopus does some ClothingDamage to Miki.
* ObliviousToLove: Ryunosuke, much to the chagrin of Kondo.
* TheOjou: Miki Saotome.
* OjouRinglets: Miki again (Though they're not prominent).
* PerpetualPoverty: The Mobile Shinsengumi often seems to be barely getting by. Despite that, their stock seems to keep rising, and they can somehow afford all the food Nekomaru seems to eat at the restaurant that Saiyoko works at. Not to mention all of Gennai's weird inventions.
* {{Qipao}}: Toshie's choice of clothing.
* RobotGirl: Hijikata has one made in her exact likeness.
* RomanticFalseLead: Saiyoko could count. For a little more than half the series, the episodes are about Yuko trying to get Ryunosuke together with Saiyoko, because he apparently has a crush on her (Information taken from Nekomaru). However, she gets demoted to background character around episode 9.
* RunningGag: Yuko constantly breaking her swords every time she uses them.
* {{Sarashi}}: Yuko Kondo and Kaoru Okita wears these around their chest.
* SchizoTech: The guns seem quite advanced for the time era, not to mention robots.
* {{Shinsengumi}}: Naturally.
* SkewedPriorities: Kondo seems a bit too obsessed with getting Ryunosuke and Saiyoko together, even at the expense of doing her regular job.
* SkinshipGrope: Yuko does this to Kaoru in the first episode, teasing her about her small breasts.
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: After Ryunosuke's (who was Okita's mother in disguise) LoveConfession to Okita, she seems to invoke this trope whenever Ryunosuke is brought up.
* TakingYouWithMe: Ranran and Kankan both trap Montague by falling on top of him, then having Okita summon her gods to banish him.
* TerribleTrio: The Tsubame-gumi: Miki Saotome and her henchmen [[{{Bishonen}} Ukon Tanaka]] and [[{{Gonk}} Sakon Suzuki.]]
* ThanksForTheMammary: Saiyoko does it to a GenderBender Ryunosuke in episode 8, and then mistakes that for him being a girl the whole time.
* UnexplainedRecovery: Happens to Ryunosuke multiple times, as well as some of the other characters.
* UnknownRival: Miki's group is largely this to the Mobile Shinsengumi girls, who don't seem to largely care about Miki at all.
* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman: Plays a pivotal role later in the series. Monsters are largely treated as less than human, or exotic things to be captured and exported for profit in the case of Miki's group. And later with Okita.
* WomanScorned: The queen in episode 7.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Kaoru's hair is a nice shade of purple, which actually borders on blue. Also, Gennai's is a light shade of lavender.
