Magic x Warrior Magi Majo Pures! is a Japanese tokusatsu series airing from April 2018 on TV Tokyo. It is the second installment of the Girls x Heroine! franchise created by OLM Incorporated and Takara Tomy with cooperation from Shogakukan and LDH. The series is directed by Takashi Miike.

The Jama World has stolen the Majoka Jewels from the Magic World and plan to use them to corrupt people's dreams to take over the universe. The Majoka Jewels are turned into Akiramestones, which will turn people into Akiramest. In the human world, Momoka Aino joins Rin Shirayuki and Mitsuki Hanamori as a Magic Warrior in their quest to take back the Majoka Jewels, which they do so by purelizing Akiramests with sparkling magic.

    • Shiori: "Hoshina" means "star plant", and she is the Star and Moon Warrior.
    • Yuria: "Nijiiro" means "rainbow", and she is the Rainbow Warrior.
  • Merchandise-Driven: Takara Tomy, one of Japan's biggest toy manufacturers, helped produce this show and really shows. It's especially jarring whenever the girls take out the Majoka Jewel Case, because every time they do, they have to make a big show of showing it to the audience first before using a Majoka Jewel.
  • Monster of the Week: In almost every episode, the Magic Warriors have to battle an Akiramest, a human who is Brainwashed and Crazy from a corrupted Majoka Jewel.
  • Muggle: Momoka is the only one of the girls who is human, since the rest of the girls are from the Magic World. However, that might not be the case anymore since Yuria senses that Momoka's mother might have ties to the Magic World.
  • Naīve Everygirl: Momoka is the newest Magic Warrior and also is the only human in the group.

  • Not So Above It All: When Shiori suggests spying on the Magic World's council meeting, Rin and Mitsuki try to dissuade her. "But aren't you curious?" Shiori asks. Mitsuki immediately relents, to Rin's displeasure, though Rin does join in as well.
  • Spoiler Opening: In episode 40, you see a shot of the Jama Baron where there was originally a clip of Gran Ma. To no one's surprise, later on in the episode, you find out that Gran Ma's arc has been wrapped up while the Jama Baron returns at the end of the episode.
  • The Power of Friendship: Shiori is saved from being Brainwashed and Crazy through the power of friendship. She also represents "friendship" when the girls transform via Royal Majoka Stage.

  • Psychic Radar: Yuria can sense who is human, Akiramest, part of the Dark World, or part of the Magic World.

  • Shipper on Deck: Momoka, Mitsuki, Shiori, and Yuria ship Rin with both Teruki and Kaito.
  • Shout-Out: Rin has some Fairytale Motifs to Snow White, as her last name literally means "white snow" ("Shirayuki" is the name used for the Japanese translations of "snow white") and in episode 30, an Akiramest tempts her with poisonous apples.
  • Sixth Ranger: Shiori joins the group after the first ten episodes and uses the Majoka Palette to transform, and she even has her own Non-Human Sidekick. Yuria also fits the Sixth Ranger trope in different ways, since she joins after the first quarter of the series, is the most powerful of all the Magic Warriors, and uses the Majoka Iris both to transform and attack. She is also the one who manages their Frilly Upgrade, even though her costume doesn't change.
  • Sleepyhead: Mokonyan's character description mentions that she loves to sleep.
  • Smart People Wear Glasses: Rin is very good at studying and wears glasses in her civilian form.
  • Spell My Name With An S: TV Tokyo and Takara Tomy's websites spell the title as "Magi Majo Pures." The third ending, "OK!", has a banner that romanizes the title as "Maji Majo."
  • Strictly Formula: The majority of episodes follow this format: Once an Episode, someone turns into an Akiramest. Magi Majo Pures defeats it and recovers a Majoka Jewel.

  • Unicorn: Yuria holds the spirit of the Unicorn and is the most powerful of all the Magic Warriors, given that she is the one who aids their power-up. During her transformation, the Majoka Iris is positioned above her like a unicorn horn.
  • Verbal Tic: The Akiramest tend to say, "Muri!", which means "impossible" in Japanese.
    • Mokonyan always ends her sentences with "da-nyan."
  • Villainous Breakdown: Jamahiko freaks out when Yuria reveals to him that he's human.
