Anime / Magical Stage Fancy Lala

Go To

Magical Stage Fancy Lala is the fifth and final Magical Girl series to be put out by Studio Pierrot. It was released in 1998.

One day, nine-year-old Miho Shinohara is given two stuffed dinosaurs by a stranger. The stuffed dinosaurs come to life and present her with a magic sketchbook and pen. Within limits, and subject to varying degrees of control, she can draw in the sketchbook and bring the drawings to life. Miho can also transform into a teenage girl, whom she names Fancy Lala. Fancy Lala is scouted by Yumi Haneishi, the president of the talent agency Lyrical Productions, and begins the long road to stardom.



  • By the Power of Grayskull!: "Toki no kioku ni omoi wo komete, ima, Fancy Lala ni karei naru seichou!" ("Bringing my thoughts into the memory of time, grow now magnificently into Fancy Lala!")
  • Cinderella Circumstances: Miho in the pilot, but averted in the series
  • Dub Name Change: In the English version, Pigu's name has been changed to Pog, probably because Pigu sounded too much like the word Pig.
Asuka futatsugi: Forget the flashbacks
  • The Masquerade: As per the norm. One person does find out at the last episode, though, but it doesn't matter since by then, Miho lost her magical items.
  • Precocious Crush: 9-year-old Miho has a crush on 19-year-old Hiroya.
  • Potty Failure: Miho's older sister wets her bed during a flashback at one point
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Miho and Akiru, though Miho isn't that much of a tomboy. She's just more vocal than Akiru, who is normally rather reserved.
