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.

Tropes:

  • 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.
