'''a.k.a.''' ''[[PortmanteauSeriesNickname Magipoka]]''

''Magical Pokaan'' is to fantasy what ''Anime/GalaxyAngel'' is to science fiction. The setup is that four princesses from the Netherworld are sent to Earth to figure out the way humans live. From there, it's all about the comedy. There's Liru, the werewolf, who turns into a cute puppy by anything that resembles the full moon... except for, oddly, the full moon. Pachira, a vampiress who really wants a larger bust size, magically incompetent Yuuma, and Aiko, a gynoid whose technical data makes your 2.4GHz Pentium Dual Core look like something from a SufficientlyAdvancedAlien. There's also their nanny/chaperone, the invisible Keimie, who is mostly either absent or silent for the most part.


Now if only their recurring nemesis Dr. K-ko learned that these girls aren't harmless at all...


If you enjoyed ''Galaxy Angel'', ''Magical Pokaan'' is a short, sweet, fun ride.

!!This show contains examples of:
* ACupAngst: Pachira.
* AllMenArePerverts
* Creator/AyaHirano: Cast as Pachira, before her explosive popularity.
* BaitAndSwitchCredits: The opening makes it look like a horror involving cults and sacrifice. This couldn't be farther from the truth.
* BaitAndSwitchLesbians: That same opening also suggests that the girls are hot for each other.
* BarbieDollAnatomy
* BeachEpisode: First half called on account of rain. Second half involves mermaids.
* BeepingComputers: Played with (and arguably averted) in Aiko: she emits noises an android made of outdated computer parts might do. When waking up or deep in thought, she produces the sound of a hard disk spinning and seeking, and in one episode where she is malfunctioning, her speech skips and loops in exactly the same way audio playback stutters on a malfunctioning or underpowered computer.
* CensorSteam
* ChunkyUpdraft: With Yuuma's casting. It sometimes causes problems with her skirt.
* CreditCardPlot: Second chapter.
* CursedWithAwesome: [[spoiler:Yuuma's allergies start acting up, and it turns out this is the only time she can actually cast a spell correctly]].
* CuteMonsterGirl: Liru and Pachira.
* CuteWitch: Yuuma.
* DarkSkinnedBlonde: Liru
* ElegantGothicLolita: Pachira.
* FantasyKitchenSink
--> '''Pachira:''' You can't accept the existence of an android even though you're ''Snow People''?
* ForeignQueasine: The four princesses have to down a case of strawberry/natto juice that Aiko bought, and which ''everyone'' finds disgusting.
* FourGirlEnsemble
* FourTemperamentEnsemble
* FriendlyNeighborhoodVampires: Pachira
* GagBoobs Super Dr. K-ko straddles the line, while the mermaid princess from the BeachEpisode has a rack that can only be described as ''ridiculously'' large.
* GagSeries
* {{Gainaxing}}: Oh so very much with Super Dr. K-ko.
* GodivaHair: most often Liru's tail.
* GratuitousEnglish: An entire episode where the first person to speak Japanese is punished with the above-mentioned ForeignQueasine.
* HeyItsThatVoice: Pachira is [[LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya Haruhi!]]
* HotSpringsEpisode: With some ''interesting'' women.
* TheIgor: Hongo.
* InformedAttribute: The fact that the girls are princesses rarely comes up; Keimie also claims to have a [[GratuitousEnglish NICE BODY]].
* [[LastOfHisKind Last Of Her Kind]]: Played in the most painfully hilarious way with Liru.
* LikeABadassOutOfHell: [[spoiler:Yuuma]] is sent to Hell, but once she figures out that she's not going to die, she starts ''enjoying'' the punishments. [[TooKinkyToTorture This promptly gets her kicked out]].
* LittleBitBeastly: Liru and [[WingedHumanoid Pachira]].
* LuckyCharmsTitle: Parodied. The full title is ''Renkin 3-kyuu Magical?Pokaan''; the question mark serves as a filler in some operating systems for obscure Unicode characters.
* MadScientist: Super Dr. K-ko.
* MonsterMash: And cute to boot!
* OurVampiresAreDifferent: Pachira. She drinks blood (and can get addicted to it) but doesn't really need to (she does substitute it with tomato juice); isn't undead (she was born and grew naturally); can't convert humans; and while she's sensitive to sunlight, it doesn't kill her (supposedly turns her to ashes which she can regenerate from, but that may have just been a figure of speech). In fact, she's more of a youkai (vampire) batgirl than a traditional vampire, though she does have no reflection.
* OurWerewolvesAreDifferent: Liru. She can't convert people and can change at will (but can be induced to do so by any round object).
* PantyShot: Always played for laughs.
* PinocchioSyndrome: Aiko
* RobotGirl: Aiko, who is also a RobotMaid.
* {{Sentai}}: Spoofed in one episode with the SuperRobot Magical Five that's never quite formed correctly.
* ShoutOut: Quite a few. For example, Dr. K-ko is named in the style of ''ProjectAKo'', and one episode features an extended reference to ''GalaxyExpress999''.
** The geek with the telescope who keeps looking up Pachira's skirt in episode 1 is wearing a Series/RedDwarf tee shirt!
* ShowWithinAShow: [[spoiler:The opening turns out to be from a show the girls used to watch when they were young]].
* SkinshipGrope: Each of the girls finds a partner to do this with in the HotSpringsEpisode. [[spoiler:Unfortunately, said partners [[VoluntaryShapeshifting aren't]] [[{{Futanari}} exactly]] [[{{Tricksters}} what]] [[GagPenis they seem]]]].
* SomethingElseAlsoRises: [[spoiler:Related to the above trope, when the girls find out the true identity of their partners]], the audience is shown various images of bananas, elephants raising their trunks, and a rocket being fired.
* {{Stripperiffic}}: Liru. Justified in that she's covered with fur and therefore doesn't really need to wear much.
* [[WolfMan Wolf Girl]]: Liru
* ZettaiRyouiki: Pachira: type B, Yuuma: type E with A garterbelt, Liru would have Type A [[WhoWearsShortShorts if]] she wore a skirt.
