View Full Version : Favorite Magic Girl Series

09-29-2006, 12:46 AM
I've seen only about 15 magic girl series so I really don't know crap about this genre. Anyway tell me so I can get a view on what people like and what they don't. K?

My favorite series of this genre is Cardcaptor Sakura!

09-29-2006, 04:22 AM
I'm a nerd, mine's Sailor Moon. I don't think I'll ever get into another one.

09-29-2006, 11:48 AM
You know, I'm not the type who wants to watch the magical girl shows for some reason. Though Cardcapter Sakura was a really good one. Too bad they always mess it up on anime. Can't give the ones who animate it too hard of a time though, they do try (just try harder animators!)

I agreed with you Dorian Grey...
Salor moon was the best anime of magical girls...

09-30-2006, 01:37 PM
I think Card Captor Sakura was a cool series.
I dunno really know any others so I couldn't really say. But I like the Magic theme so..

Card Captor Sakura

09-30-2006, 03:11 PM
i would have to go with my-hime..

a high school filled with hime.. girls with magical powers..

how cool is that?

10-03-2006, 07:04 AM
I like W.i.t.c.h. because it so real type and anime I like SM!

10-03-2006, 07:10 AM
Umm... I'll probably have to go with either Sailor Moon or Magic Knight Rayearth. Both filled with teenage girls who have the most high pitched voices I've ever heard.

Gotta love'em.

Magical Lyrical Girl Nanoha. Just came out as tv series in my country. I think it's not bad.

10-19-2006, 05:37 AM
i just recently seen the whole series of Maburaho which i like, but it really annoyed me. besides that i like CCS ^_^

10-19-2006, 10:47 AM
I enjoy Sailor Moon liekwoa, but I'd have to go with Excel Saga being my favorite (the senshi being a very close second).

Yes, I know it's probably not as fitting to this genre as Sailor Moon, but c'mon! Girls with powers, right? I'm sure they did a parody of Magical Girl series.. >>;

10-22-2006, 06:27 PM
Mai Hime & Mai Otome, by far the best ;D

10-23-2006, 06:24 PM
Sailor Moon and Tokyo Mew Mew. Is Ceres considered one?

Myth Aire
10-23-2006, 10:57 PM
Ayashi no Ceres? hmmm..maybe.. but I think this thread is more about those girl characters that transform into those magical soldiers type thingies....lol but ANC is a cool anime <3 yuu watase

well my choice for this thread is I guess Full Moon wo Sagashite

10-24-2006, 07:39 AM
Nanoha, Undoubtably the best Mahou Shojo to date. Nanoha and Nanoha A's just blew off Mai-Otome out of my favorites list after I finished both series.

Reason #1: There are no long Henshin sequences in Nanoha. Most Henshin are speeded up to keep realism up.

Reason #2: Revolutionary Fighting scenes. During the first series, Nanoha boasts Shounen-level fight scenes and choreography that trumps even some Shounen series. Spells were not one-hit and used in a strategic manner. During the Second season, the Velka-Type way is introduced in which cartridges/magazines are introduced to power-up magic. New modes like Fate's Zanber form and Nanoha's Excellion mode were weapons you'd hardly think a Mahou Shojou would own. All in all, Nanoha was groundbreaking, innovation-wise.

Reason #3: Nanoha had one of the darker stories for a Mahou Shojo anime. It did not focus on collecting or saving. It focused on the development of Nanoha and Fate through their struggles as enemies(season 1) and as friends (season 2). In Nanoha, no one is absolutely right nor absolutely wrong.

All in all, Nanoha just breaks away from Mahou Shojo mediocrity and re-creates this genre.That's why I have to say that this anime is the best of its kind. Even non-Mahou Shojo fans appreciate it n_n.

I'd say Sailor Moon, because its so indepth with different kinds of relationships exploring both homosexual and heterosexual, and testing the boundries of true love.

The Goddess has Spoken

10-24-2006, 03:24 PM
I'd say Magical Doreimi!!! There so cute and have magical powers and such.

10-25-2006, 08:26 AM
I like most Card Captor Sakura too

Sailor Neko
10-25-2006, 01:06 PM
I love Sailor Moon and Card Captor Sakura as my favorite magical girl series...

10-26-2006, 10:52 AM
I haven't watch so many magic girl animes but I would say Sailor Moon and Magic Knight Rayearth.

10-26-2006, 04:05 PM
One that I love is Di Gi Charat!

10-26-2006, 07:53 PM
Sailor Moon is popular.

10-28-2006, 08:13 PM

11-09-2006, 12:27 PM
Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne. It used to be Bishoujo Senshi Sailormoon but.....KKJ's just better in all ways. ^^;

As for a magical girl anime that was the most well-done, Princess Tutu wins, hands down.;)

11-09-2006, 01:29 PM
Nothing can beat Sailor Moon.

11-09-2006, 01:55 PM
Nothing can beat Sailor Moon.au francais, player.

11-10-2006, 03:43 AM
Of course Card Captor Sakura and Sailor moon are the most popular magic girl anime...
>>>I like Card Captor Sakura since her costumes are so KAWAII!!!
>>>And I think I'll go for Maburaho (...is it a magic girl anime?) since it's got a cute story even though I haven't watched it completely... I really enjoy watching it...:happy:


11-18-2006, 05:38 AM
my favorite are the 80s series, especially those from the Pierrot studio: Mahou no Tenshi Creamy Mami, Mahou no Star Magical Emi...
....but also Puni Puni Poemi (spin-off from Excel Saga) is one of the best^^

11-18-2006, 05:50 AM
i'm a card captor fanatic!!(other than naruto ofcourse) she rockz!

11-18-2006, 09:43 AM

11-22-2006, 10:06 AM
Tokyo Mew Mew and Mermaid Melody

11-22-2006, 02:48 PM
I absolutely love Card Captor Sakura!!!! =D

11-25-2006, 05:13 PM
My favorites are Pretty Cure, Tokyo Mew Mew, Puni Puni Poemy, and Powerpuff Girls Z! These are Magical Girl anime. I don't know about Puni Puni Poemy, though... Spin-off of Excel Saga.

Spin-off or not, Puni counts. She transforms and fights "evil". Yup xD

11-25-2006, 09:29 PM
Sailor Moon, hands down.
I agree! It's my favorite anime..so yeah...;) :happy:

11-27-2006, 02:59 AM
Carcsptor Sakura is probably the best but I just started watching the first few eps of Sugar Sugar Rune and I found it really cool! I'm not usually a fan of this genre but I have to make allowances with those two.^_^:rolleyes:

02-18-2007, 07:20 AM
Is Miyu a magic girl or w/e? lol If yes then yeah Vampire Princess Miyu is my fav one because it's very mysterious and intelectual so I like that kinda anime.

Cardcaptor Sakura! I read all of them. It was the first graphic novel I ever read.

03-15-2007, 06:37 PM

too bad i was hoping to see a lot of ccs fans like me anyway have fun watching

03-30-2007, 09:53 PM
I like that too! ^_^

03-31-2007, 05:28 PM
Well, since most people love Sailor Moon, I would suggest Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne. It's about a sixteen-year-old girl named Maron who transforms into Jeanne. Jeanne is actually a hero of the olden days, and since Maron is the reincarnation of Jeanne, she can transform into Jeanne. In the series, demons possess objects, and a person comes along and gets tranced by the object, becoming greedy, mean, and selfish, only carrying about that object. Maron's goal is to "steal" these objects and making the demon escape it, allowing the person possesed by the object to be free from its grasp. But how could Maron even get to the object when the police is always after her and Kaitou Sinbad, her rival, gets there before her? It's a story of romance, betrayal, and believing in yourself. I would highly suggest it.

I would also recommend Kyoshiro to Towa no Sora. It's a very complicated and short anime, but in the end it's worth watching. It's not a magical girl anime, but it's still very good. It's too complicated to explain so you should just watch it! It's a tale of true love and so much more.

03-31-2007, 08:59 PM
Mine would have to be Card Captor Sakura (he he he I loved that show)

04-03-2007, 02:13 PM
Sailor Moon would be mine hands down. Card Captor Sakura is alright, I didn't really get into that one much. And Tokyo Mew Mew would be a good one as well. The manga version of course not the television show, personaly the television show was just not well done.

04-04-2007, 04:24 PM
Sailor Moon. Definately. I loved watching it when I was little every weekday morning. I would have to fight my brother for the TV. I always won. You could never see me missing an episode on TV unless something important came up.

I watched the Japanese version of it last year, I liked it a hell of a lot more. XD I also got to see the last season. Her voice was really squeaky in it but it was so much better then the deepest voice of the century with the scariest laugh. :D

04-04-2007, 04:33 PM
Chibi Vampire is my favorite. Then Card Captors, Tokyo Mew Mew, and last, Sailor Moon.

04-16-2007, 04:16 PM
I really love Full Moon wo Sagashite and Mermaid Melody, they're my two favorite animes.

05-01-2007, 09:13 PM
Ok, that is a hard decition, because i love all the animes from the magical girl gengre, Sailor Moon, was, is and will be the beat anime for all the time, Magical Doremi still it, but we have much like Card Captor Sakura, TMM, but exist a lot of magical anime

05-02-2007, 12:38 AM
I know. It's sometimes hard to choose especially with all the new ones around. ^^;
