    Typical Magical Girl
    As the title says, this is your typical magical girl anime. It has a lot of common traits; childhood friend moved away and reunited, flying "broomsticks", pink haired main character...etc. etc. It switches between drawn animation and 3D rendered at times, showing a higher budget than normal.

    Kinda generic, but still cute if you're into magical girl anime.

    Sakura Cardcaptor meets Ojamajo Doremi?
    Although this may seem like a generic anime, It's really nostalgic to see these type of gently cute anime's back on. It's pretty obvious that the intended audience is by no means a male one, so from a girl's point of view I'm really enjoying this 2015 version of magical girls, and nicer yet because It did not portray any perverted stuff, and trust me, for us girls, that makes this easier for our ...

    Going back to the basics
    No grimdark. No fanservice. Oldschool magical girl anime fun.

    It is based on a series of online shorts, and if it sticks to the sourse material, it should stay fun. Definitely not for the 18-49 y/o male periphery demographic that a lot of recent mahou shoujo series have been for.

    Good magical girl anime, bad promotion idea
    Wish Upon the Pleiades is a good magical girl anime. It fails (in my opinion) to do it's primary purpose (sell us Subaru cars) but the story is actually good. The protagonists as well as the antagonists all have their goal and motivation explained in an episode centered around them, making those characters.

    The animation quality is great from the first frame to the last, and easely reaches ...

    Cute Magical Girls and Space!
    Wish Upon the Pleiades is a mix of magical girl (mainly cute witch) and slice of life with some Sci-Fi elements mixed in. Overall, this is a good choice for those looking for a feel-good show with cute characters.
    Some of the dialogue can be rather silly at times and sometimes the animation is awkward but otherwise this is a very enjoyable show with lovable characters, and it's definitely worth ...

    Cute Magical Girls with Aliens!
    I had just been missing this kind of magical girl show!! Unlike most recently there hasn't been anything I would consider very inappropriate (as of episode 3), but instead a nice story of young girls realizing their potential and helping an alien along the way. I hope it will stay cute with a pretty decent storyline, and I look forward to the future episodes!

    Nothing really new, but cute
    Honestly, this is a no-risk Magical Girl anime brought to you by the oddest of places: Subaru, as in the car company. There's a few references to this through the anime as well, such as their "brooms" (called "Drive Shafts" and with a grill like different Subaru models, as well as giving engine noise), despite this, it really doesn't feel that much like a commercial so much as just a random ...

    Worth 24min/week definitely
    First and foremost, let me mention that I gave this show 5 stars only after considering multiple factors such as personal enjoyment, production quality, content, compensation for unfair votes (both positive and negative", etc.

    I have never been much of a fan of the magical girl genre. My primary issue isn't with the concept, but rather so many series that attempt it are just plain stale- like ...

    Cute, Touching, and Po-warm
    Maho shojou, astronomy, cosplay, aliens, and friendship.

    If any of the above appeal to you, this may be a nice series to watch!

    While it looks cute, and fluffy and genki and stuff, it actually has a melancholic mood, so if you aren't in the mood for feels, then wait until you're ready.

    One good thing is that this anime does not have too much fan service, but there is a themed episode, ...

    Web net animation to TV anime adaptation~<3
    I watched this when it was a web net animation in 2011~<3 I loved it and it actually broke my heart almost :c It's super cute, but it really does have the basic magical girl plot. Seeing that they brought it back into an animation adaptation made me so happy~<3
