'''a.k.a.''' ''[[PortmanteauSeriesNickname Magipoka]]'' '''a.k.a.''' ''Renkin San-kyuu Magical? Pokaan''

''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, who consistently bemoans how small her breasts are and gets wishes they were bigger.
%%* AllMenArePerverts
* 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
* BarredFromTheAfterlife: [[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]].
%%* 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* BeepingComputers: Played with (and arguably averted) in Aiko: she emits noises an android made of outdated computer parts might do.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.
* BestKnownForTheFanservice: In-universe, Yuuma's magic show is only known because the ChunkyUpdraft from her spells causes people to catch glimpses of her panties.
* CensorSteam: When the girls are bathing during the BeachEpisode, the steam obscures all private parts.
%%* 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. Liru is a werewolf who looks like a cute girl with wolf ears and a tail who has a hunger for beef, while Pachira has pointed ears, fangs, and a desire for blood that's played for laughs.
* CuteWitch: Yuuma, a girl who describes herself as a "sorceress" and who tries to solve many of her problems with her (not very advanced) magic powers..
* DarkSkinnedBlonde: Liru, who has noticeably darker skin than most of the other characters and has naturally bright blond hair.
%%* ElegantGothicLolita: Pachira.
* FantasyKitchenSink: Werewolves, vampires, witches, mermaids, and demons and angels are all real and shown, among other types of fantasy beings.
--> '''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: Yuuma is '''Sanguine''': cheerful, childish, and somewhat scatterbrained, as well as seemingly the youngest of the group. Pachira is '''Choleric''': commanding and strong-willed... though she is also somewhat arrogant and impatient with other people. Liru is '''Phlegmatic''': easy-going, the most down-to-earth (along with Aiko) of the group, and tends to go with the flow rather than cause drama. Aiko is '''Melancholic''': polite to a fault, quiet and reserved in demeanor, and takes the imitative to make sure everyone is cared for, and holds a TragicDream that she rarely mentions to the rest of the group.
* FriendlyNeighborhoodVampires: Pachira, who doesn't actually eat anyone as she can survive just fine on tomato juice.
* GagBoobs Super Dr. K-ko's large breasts are extremely bouncy and make an audible "boing" sound everytime.
%%* 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.
%%* HotSpringsEpisode: With some ''interesting'' women.
* TheIgor: Hongo, Dr. K-ko's very short but loyal assistant in her attempts to show the existence and dangers of monsters to the world.
* InformedAttribute: The fact that the girls are princesses rarely comes up; Keimie also claims to have a [[GratuitousEnglish NICE BODY]].
* LastOfHisKind: Played in the most painfully hilarious way with Liru, who at first thinks that she's the last werewolf in Japan until she finds that ThereIsAnother... and then the expected AdamAndEvePlot goes completely off the rails.
* LittleBitBeastly: Liru (a werewolf who looks human except for her wolf ears and tall) and [[WingedHumanoid Pachira]] (a vampire who looks human except for her wings and fangs).
* 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, a robot who wants to obtain a human body; it's even one of her wishes during Tanabata.
* ReusedCharacterDesign: The blue haired woman in the Hotspring episode bears a striking resemblance to Kei from HandMaidMay. Same face, glasses, and hair color with the only difference that the blue haired woman\'s breasts are much larger. Considering that same character designer for HandMaidMay work on this series, it\'s definitely more than a coincidence.
* RobotGirl: Aiko, a robot who looks almost completely like a human girl except for her clearly robotic arms (or when she's offline and her eyes turn to black circles). She 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 ''Anime/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!
** In the [=OVA=] involving the girls as doctors, the invisible Keimie wears bandages in the same manner as the ''Literature/TheInvisibleMan''.
* 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.
* TransferableMemory: Aiko's hardware lacks to space to hold all her memories, so most of her childhood is downloaded onto VHS tapes that she doesn't have the nessesary player to watch.
%%* [[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.
