Anime: Miracle Shojo Limit Chan

Miracle Shojo Limit-chan is an early Magical Girl anime, also known as Cybernella in Italy. It aired from October 1973 to March 1974 on NET (now TV Asahi) and featured character designs by Kazuo Komatsubara (Devilman, Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind).

When 11-year-old Limit Nishiyama is critically injured in an airplane crash, her scientist father saves her life by turning her into a cyborg. Now she has a number of superpowers at her disposal, but she must also keep her robotic nature a secret from her peers.

Limit-chan was created by Toei Animation from an original idea by Hiromi Productions. She got the time slot on NET that had been reserved for Magical Girl series since Sally the Witch, while another Magical Girl cyborg - the same animation studio/broadcaster's Cutey Honey - was retooled as a more action-oriented series and got a different time slot. It was Honey, however, who proved more popular.

This show is noteworthy also for being the first production on which Toei outsourced some of the animation work to a Korean studio.
