    More like Magical Pain
    Like most parody-based comedies, this OVA will be very hit or miss with viewers. I found it to beyond inane, trite and tiresome. The plot is paint by numbers, the characters stereotypical. Both iterations of this show are rife with ugly costume design.

    Overall, Magical Play needs numerous adult beverages and a Nerf launcher to shoot the screen when it really deserves it. a 2.75 score
