''Super Pig'' (''Ai to Yuuki no Pig Girl Tonde Buurin'' or Boorin depending on how you romanize it) is a MagicalGirlWarrior / MagicalGirl series, or rather a parody of one.

Kokubu Karin (Kassie Carlen in English dub) is an [[OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent ordinary middle school student]], much in the mold of your standard MagicalGirl heroine, she is constantly LateForSchool and has a crush on the school soccer captain, Mizuno Kouichi. On her way to school one day, Karin finds an [[WeaselMascot injured yellow piglet]] which turns out to not actually be injured, merely hungry, and he steals her apple. He stows away in her school bag, and causes havoc for her throughout the day until she finds a compact on her way home.

A pink pig's snout flies out and attaches itself to her face. This freaks Karin out, but she's also taken by surprise when she finds the piglet (Tonrariaano) [[TalkingAnimal can talk]], and is an alien from the planet Ringo (that's Japanese for apple, nothing to do with Music/TheBeatles). He tells her to say, "[[ByThePowerOfGreyskull BA BI BU BE BOorin!]]" She does, thinking this will remove the snout, but instead she transforms (via TransformationSequence) completely into a caped pig! This form is called Justice Buurin (more often just Buurin). Suffice to say, poor Karin is not happy about this, on the upside though she now has an arsenal of StockSuperPowers which she ''does'' find pretty cool. After saving a young boy from a house fire she returns home and Tonrariaano (or Ton-chan) tells her how to turn back, she is told she can become any heroine she wants if she collects OneHundredAndEight pearls for her good deeds. She agrees but if anyone finds out about her SecretIdentity she'll be stuck as Buurin for life!

Has several other language dubs, including an English one (''Super Pig'') which aired redubbed to Spanish in Latin America (''Super Cerdita'', [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff where it was a huge hit]]), and a couple of episodes of which aired on FoxKids UK's anime weekend "way back" in the early 2000s.

'''Contains examples of:'''

* AlienAnimals: Ton-chan as well as his father are apparently a race of alien pigs from another planet that's shaped and colored like a red apple.
* AllLoveIsUnrequited: Local Rich Boy Takuma has a crush on Karin. The AlphaBitch Kyoko crushes on Takuma. Karin crushes on Mizuno. Mizuno crushes on... [[LovesMyAlterEgo Buurin]].
* AlphaBitch: Kyoko Kuroha, the class president (though more just rich and powerful than popular)
* AlternativeForeignThemeSong: The English version (and any other version based on it) uses a different [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VqtXdABfGj0 theme song]].

* {{Animorphism}}
* BalloonBelly: Karin in episode 4.
* BrokenAesop: In one episode of ''Ai to Yuuki no Pig Girl Tonde Buurin'' Karin once got a demo of the MagicalGirl form she wished for to try for one day, however she failed solving a dangerous situation making her deliberately become Buurin again to do that. While this was probably meant as a ''"maybe what you already have is better than you think"'' but is broken since her demo did not possess any [[StockSuperPowers super powers]] aside flight making it pretty much useless as a super form.
* ByThePowerOfGreyskull: "BA BI BU BE [=BOorin=]!": It's a nonsense spell, based on Japanese vowel order [=AIUEO=] rather than the Latin [=AEIOU=].
* GratuitousEnglish: Keiko often says singular words in English, with a bit too much emphasis on pronouncing them, which makes her sound like she has an accent.
