''Omishi Magical Theatre: Risky☆Safety'' is a particularly [[SugarWiki/NeedsMoreLove underloved]] 1999-2000 {{anime}} series based on a manga by [[SorcererHunters Ray]] [[MazeMegaburstSpace Omishi]], which has as its main selling point [[TastesLikeDiabetes overpowering cuteness]].

Junior-high-schooler Moe Katsuragi is depressed upon seeing her crush with an older girl. The depths of her despair attract a [[SleepModeSize tiny]] {{Shinigami}} named Risky, who will go to great lengths to capture her soul upon death. Risky gets as far as her initial pitch, which causes Moe to laugh... prompting Risky to disappear and the sudden appearance of equally tiny [[OurAngelsAreDifferent apprentice angel]] Safety. Turns out that the pair [[SharingABody share the body]].

Comprised of 24 eight-minute episodes, ''Risky☆Safety'' manages to start with SliceOfLife comedy and make it even LighterAndSofter than previously thought possible. As Moe goes about her daily life, now accompanied by the bossy Risky and the klutzy Safety, she comes to learn what her happiness really entails.

!!This show provides examples of:
* AdaptationDyeJob: For both Risky and Safety. In this case, Safety's hair color is changed from blue in the manga to cyan ([[HairColorDissonance or green, depending on the viewer]]) in the anime, while Risky's outfit, crimson in the manga, becomes grey.
* BalloonBelly
* BecauseDestinySaysSo: The final arc of the series had The Moment of Destiny dramatically altering character's fates, and to some extent their personalities. Some characters, Safety included, are willing to give up and accept the changes, but...
** ScrewDestiny: Risky sets her straight with this trope.
--->'''Risky:''' "I'm a shinigami who's brave enough to follow her ''own'' will! Isn't that the same for ''you,'' Safety?"
* BigEater: Risky, apparently...in the first episode alone, she apparently ate an entire box of chocolate kisses in about ten seconds. Chocolates which are ''the size of her head.''
* BigOlEyebrows: ''Moe'', surprisingly enough.
* ButNowIMustGo: [[spoiler:After successfully beating their destinies, Risky and Safety inform Moe that they have to return to their superiors now to await punishment. They vanish, telling her not to cry and that they'll always be friends. They return in the end though, presumably to spend the rest of Moe's life with her.]]
* CulturalCrossReference: A shrine kami compares Moe and Yuya's relationship to [[StarWars Anakin and Amidala's]]. This gag originated in the Japanese script.
** Additionally, two episode titles are references to the AustinPowers series. Ray Omishi must ''really'' like American movies.
* CuteLittleFang: Risky has one.
* TheFaceless: Moe's parents, Yuya's father. We hear their voices, and the most we see of any of them are their hands or their legs.
* FailureIsTheOnlyOption: For Risky, at least. She receives increasingly-irritated nastygrams from her superiors over her failed scams for Moe's soul.
* FanServicePack: Risky is shown in episodes 14 and 15 as being much more... ample.
* FormFittingWardrobe: Again, Risky. During the aforementioned episodes 14 and 15, her clothing really accentuated her bust.
* HeyItsThatVoice: For being such a short series, the show has a very impressive cast in both Japanese and English.
** Moe is voiced by Creator/MaayaSakamoto in Japanese and Creator/JulieAnnTaylor in English.
** In the dub, Risky and Safety have different actresses. One of them is [[Franchise/{{Disgaea}} Sandy Fox]], who plays... [[spoiler:''[[PlayingAgainstType Risky]]'']]. The other one is MichelleRuff.
* GetAholdOfYourselfMan: Risky delivers one of these to Safety near the end, when she's ready to give up and just let her friend's destinies get rewritten.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: In one episode, Safety wonders what if she never gets rid of the spell the love arrow has on Lani, and then supposes she might be forced to marry him. She then has a random vision of herself and Lani being married, then to the two of them in a hotel, and then just as the vision stops Safety starts panicking, saying "I don't even want to think about what comes after ''that''!"
* GenreShift: The FracturedFairyTale which turns into a SpaceOpera, mentioned below, and one episode even is played out like a silent film, complete with black-and-white and sepia tone.
* HilariousOuttakes: The [=DVDs=] include dubbing out-takes.
** CurseCutShort: One out-take has Creator/SandyFox messing up her line, and saying, "Aw, cra-!" before it cuts off.
* InLoveWithTheMark: Kade was sent to kill one of the Momotaro. They fell in love instead.
* InterSpeciesRomance: Lani the Pomeranian is in love with both Risky ''and'' Safety, thanks to Safety accidentally shooting him with a love arrow. Needless to say, it's unrequited.
* JapaneseHonorifics: Safety is extremely polite and always uses an appropriate honorific when talking to someone. On the other hand, Risky is the exact opposite: she is ''very'' rude and ''never'' uses honorifics.
* {{Meganekko}}: Safety, and occasionally Moe.
** BlindWithoutEm: Again, Safety.
* [[strike:Naked]] [[NakedFirstImpression Underwear First Impression]]: Moe first spots Risky while the latter is putting on her clothes.
* OddCouple: Risky and Safety, although a variation, as they don't live with each other, but [[SharingABody share each other's body]].
* OneHeadTaller: Moe is a head taller than her boyfriend, Yuya. [[spoiler:She has to bend down a bit to kiss him in the second-to-last episode.]]
* OnTheNextEpisodeOfCatchPhrase: This changes slightly depending on who's delivering the line. Risky uses "Yoroshiku, baby!" while Safety reads the line straighter, but sticks "[[VerbalTic desu no]]" to the end.
* PurpleEyes: Risky. Moe too, but hers are more bluish.
* SharingABody
* {{Shinigami}}: Risky, who has a lot of skull motifs in her clothing, is a cross between the "GrimReaper" and "[[GoodAngelBadAngel shoulder devil]]" portrayals.
* SomethingCompletelyDifferent: Done twice, first with telling a story from the pair's past, and second to [[FracturedFairyTale turn the story of Momotaro]] [[GenreShift into a]] SpaceOpera.
* StarCrossedLovers: Wakatake, one of the Momotaros, and Kade, a shinigami.
* SweetDreamsFuel
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: It seems that Risky has a thing for chocolate kisses.
* {{Tsundere}}: Risky.
* VerbalTic: Safety ends most of her sentences with the archaic ''desu no''.
* YamatoNadeshiko: Safety, as noted under Japanese honorfics, is very polite.
* YouCantFightFate: [[spoiler:Ultimately averted.]]
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Safety in both the anime and manga versions. Though it's more of a greenish-blue shade in the anime.
