''{{Magikano}}'' is a {{manga}} series by Takeaki Momose, which was later adapted into an {{anime}} series directed by Seiji Kishi and written by Hideki Mitsui.

The story centers on Ayumi Mamiya, a witch cursed to lose her powers, and Haruo Yoshikawa, an apparently {{ordinary high school student}} whose three sisters (Maika, Chiaki, & Fuyuno) are witches who use their magical powers to keep him protected and ignorant about the existence of magic. Now Ayumi must wake up Haruo's latent powers to save herself, but his sisters have other ideas.

Their classmates include Hajime Hario and Sora Fujiwara, male members of the "Supernatural Science Club" that seems more interested in selling dubious products; as well as Yuri Kurosu, the student council president. Marin Nijihara (a catholic witch-hunter) and Rika Anju (a {{meido}} to the Yoshikawa household) show up later.

!! This manga provides examples of:

* AbsurdlyPowerfulStudentCouncil: While Yuri doesn't take it to the extreme that some other shows do, she does abuse her privileges whenever it concerns Haruo, such as showing up to his house when she hears that Ayumi is living with him, or the other girls terrible roles in the play in episode 9. The other characters often [[LampshadeHanging point out that she's abusing her powers.]]
* AbuseIsOkayWhenItsFemaleOnMale: Seems Haruo is often on the receiving end of this, usually by his sisters or Ayumi.
* AllAnimeIsNaughtyTentacles: The plant monster from Episode 8.
* BalloonBelly: Chiaki in episode 12.
* BarehandedBladeBlock: Rika stops a giant's axe with one hand.
* {{BFS}}: Yuri has one during her battle mode. Can double as a hovering surf board.
* BigBrotherAttraction: Maika, to Haruo. She's always showering him with affection, hiding in his closet and watching him sleep, trying to bathe him, modeling lingerie for him to see (even wearing it on top of her school uniform to give him a little preview), and attempting to drive away any and all other female attention from him.
* BigEater: Chiaki. However, she claims to enjoy exercising even more than she enjoys eating.
* BlueWithShock: Happens to Ayumi in episode 4 after someone steals her pendant. She also suffers a HeroicBSOD.
** Happens to her again in episode 7 when Rika puts a cage full of rats in front of her face.
* BrickJoke: "Huh, deja vu."
* BrotherSisterIncest: Played with. Maika's love for her brother ''can't'' be healthy.
--> '''Ayumi:''' [[CrowningMomentOfFunny It's in her god-damned DNA?!]]
* BrotherSisterTeam: The "All Sisters" variant.
* ButtMonkey: Haruo unfortunately.
* CatGirl: Ayumi's hair decorations seem to resemble cat ears, and she [[CatsAreMean vaguely]] resembles one.
* CatSmile: Most of the girls display one, particularly when they're happy. Ayumi sometimes even makes cat noises while showing one off.
* ClingyJealousGirl: All the main girls exhibit this at some point, but Maika, Ayumi, and Yuri seem to display this the most.
* ClosetSublet: Maika frequently hides in Haruo's closet and watches him sleep.
* ClothingDamage: Happens more often in the later episodes.
* ConspicuousCG: The water blob's first appearance in episode 6.
* CurbStompBattle: The ghost girl, using Haruo's magic, absolutely stomps all of the witches attempts to fight.
* {{Determinator}}: All of the girls competing in the race in episode 8 seem a bit too focused on trying to win. [[spoiler: Then it's hilariously subverted when Chiaki wins because she won 40 eating contests, making the 30 points from the race worthless. The girls are not happy about that.]]
* {{Dominatrix}}: The Queen of Hearts in episode 9.
* DisproportionateRetribution: The girls tend to overreact to the other's attempts at wooing Haruo. Then they take it out on him once in a while as well even though he had nothing to do with it.
* {{Dojikko}}: Marin is rather clumsy.
* DoubleEntendre: A lot of the high-school girls are fans of {{Yuri|Genre}} Kurosu.
* DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnMale: Ayumi tries this frequently on Haruo. Technically, it's a subversion since Maika has a tendency to give any girl who flirts with her brother [[ClingyJealousGirl a punch in the face, and thensome.]]
* DynamicEntry: Yuri does it to Ayumi in episode 12.
* EldritchAbomination: Haruo's original form was apparently a two-hundred meter tall shadow with blood red eyes and humongous teeth.
* EmotionlessGirl: Anju Rika.
* {{Fanservice}}: Quite a bit of it.
* FingerTwitchingRevival: [[spoiler:Haruo does this before going into EleventhHourSuperpower mode]].
* GreenEyedMonster: Maika literally turns into one at times.
* [[spoiler:GroundhogDayLoop: It turns out that all the events in the series have happened numerous times before and must be changed cardinally to progress. However there is indication that this time round it will be different.]]
* HereWeGoAgain: [[spoiler:See GroundhogDayLoop.]]
* HolierThanThou: Marin, a Catholic witch-hunter who believes Haruo needs protection from "evil witches" (specifically, his sisters).
* IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming: The episode titles always ask a question.
* ImagineSpot: The girls often have these, usually about Haruo.
* ItRunsInTheFamily: Haruo's three sisters.
* KnightTemplar: Marin tries to act like one, but isn't very good at it.
* LargeHam: Hajime most of the time, but the girls often do this too when Haruo is brought up.
* LightningGlare: Yuri and Ayumi do this to each other in episode 2.
** Happens again in episode 8, this time with the addition of Maika and Marin.
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: Haruo's sisters seem quite persistent in making sure he doesn't use any magic or realize they're witches. Hence why he's often getting hit with the memory erasing hammers.
* LoveFreak: Marin.
* LoverTugOfWar: Episode 12 has one between Ayumi and Maika.
* MagicalGirl: All the sisters and Yuri change outfits when they enter battle mode. Fuyuno changes into a standard magical girl outfit however.
* MeaningfulName: Yuri. She seems to be the quite the [[CoolBigSis elegant, level-headed]] OneeSama of literally [[SchoolgirlLesbians every girl in her school]].
* {{Meido}}: The female leads have no business being maids - they just do it for the free room and board.
** Until you account that one [[ArtificialHuman artificially-created]] EmotionlessGirl with an [[{{Magitek}} assault rifle that shoots magical pellets]].
* MoneyDearBoy: In-universe example, Hajime and Fuyuno are often thinking about how to make money, even at the expense of other characters such as Yuri.
* MoneyFetish: Fuyuno is obsessed with cash, mostly swimming in it and earning it.
* OnlySaneMan: Haruo is often wondering what happened, or why people are acting really weird and crazy. Part of it is due to his sisters constantly hitting him with memory erasing hammers.
* OnTheNextEpisodeOfCatchPhrase: "Stay tuned for more magic!"
* OpenTheIris: In a rather extreme example, the iris opens, then the iris and pupil shrink, and the sclera ''fractures''.
* PantyShot: Quite a few of them, usually Ayumi's.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: The school principal doesn't seem to mind the crazy stuff going on, although it doesn't help that he's [[CovertPervert buying all the girly stuff Hajime keeps hawking.]]
* SchoolFestival: Episode 9.
* SeriousBusiness: Almost anything regarding Haruo, whether it's a kiss from him or giving him a lunch.
* SkinshipGrope
* StealthHiBye: Yuri and Rika both seem capable of instantly appearing wherever they're needed or wherever Haruo happens to be at the time.
* SupernaturalGoldEyes: Ayumi's eyes turn into this when she's casting spells.
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: On Yuri getting the part of Cinderella in episode 9's school festival, and Haruo playing the prince.
-->'''Yuri:''' (with a funny smirk on her face): [[BlatantLies I didn't pick Haruo on purpose, it was a collective decision.]]
* StudentCouncilPresident: Yuri
* TakeThat: Done at least once in the dub:
-->'''Marin:''' "Ayumi Mamiya correct?"
-->'''Ayumi:''' "Not ''another'' [[HollywoodJehovahsWitness Jehovah's Witness]].
* TemporalThemeNaming: The Yoshikawa family uses the seasonal motif, with ''Haru''o (Spring), Mai''ka'' (Summer), Chi''aki'' (Autumn) and ''Fuyu''no (Winter).
* ThanksForTheMammary: When Ayumi first meets Marin in episode 5, she accidentally launches a spell when Haruo shows up, which causes Marin to get knocked back into Haruo. Ayumi then sees him grabbing her chest, and immediately [[ClingyJealousGirl gets jealous]] about it.
* ThisIsForEmphasisBitch: Done ''a lot'' in the dub.
* {{Tsundere}}: Ayumi, who is also a...
** {{Yandere}}: Ayumi really needs to improve her anger management...
** But if you think Ayumi's temper is serious, then look at [[BigBrotherAttraction Maika]]: you haven't seen temper yet.
* TransparentCloset: Umi is "happy" to be doing do anything with Yuri, even being attacked by a giant plant.
* TypeCasting: In-universe example. In episode 9 of the dub, after Ayumi gets into her witch costume:
-->'''Ayumi:''' Why am I a witch?
-->'''Yuri:''' Ever heard of typecasting, [[ThisIsForEmphasisBitch bitch?]]
* UnwantedHarem: The female leads.
* [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why Did It Have To Be Eels]]: Ayumi is not fond of eels, or rats.
