    Boys over Flowers is the story of Makino Tsukushi, a 16 year old girl from the wrong side of the tracks who is a new student at Eitoku Gakuen, a very exclusive school that is attended by the richest of society's children. At first she choses to stay unknown for the remaining two years of her stay at the school. But her one and only friend gets in trouble with the F4 and Tsukushi stands up for her friend. She receives a red card and that's when all the confusion begins. The F4 are Hanazawa Rui 18, Nishikado Soujirou 18, Mimasaka Akira 18 and Doumyouji Tsukasa 17 who is the ringleader of the group. Tsukushi's unexpected resistance piques Doumyouji's interest. Her strength proves to be attractive to him, and he ends up having a crush on her, even though they are 'at war' with each other. Tsukushi, on the other hand, does not seem to be that impressed with the rich, arrogant Doumyouji, and instead finds herself attracted to another member of the F4, the quiet, sensitive violin player, Hanazawa Rui. This sets up an explosive triangle of love and hate relationships, as Tsukushi finds herself in the middle of a tug of war between Rui and Doumyouji. Tsukushi has to face the pressure of the school's rapidly shifting opinion of her, her status as a poor girl in a rich school, and her attraction to a cool but mysterious guy (Rui) while at the same time dealing with the advances of Doumyouji. If you should come across this series, I highly recommend checking it out!moreless

    His appearance gallant, and his smile gentle, the prince enveloped the princess in the scent of roses, and wiped away her tears.

Since their presence could cause chaos in their world, the Elves decided to send them back. The ceremony is performed by the Elves' slightly psychotic leader, Celcia Marie Claire. The ceremony goes well, except that, at the last minute, Junpei's unflattering comments push Celcia over the edge. Her focus is lost and the incantation vanishes, separated in fragments, which the gang will have to find if they want to go back to their world.

    TV Tokyo (ended 2007)
    This guide covers the various television spinoffs where Sasami, the smallest of the Tenchi Muyo girls, gets to be a magical girl. In Pretty Sammy and Magical Project S Sasami Kawai is your typical (aren't they always?) Japanese fourth-grader, who one day gets a visit from the Queen-to-be Tsunami to become a magical girl. Tsunami's sister, Ramia, has other plans: transforming Sasami's best friend Misao into a rival magical girl Pixy Misa, who summons Love-Love monsters to wreak havoc every week. In Sasami Magical Girls Club, Sasami and friends are a group of fifth-graders that end up forming a quintet of magical girls under the guise of Washu's cooking club. They grow their friendships and go on magical adventures. This series is more dramatic than the previous Pretty Sammy and Magical Project S series. One of the strong points of the series is that it is one of the few shows that recasts a popular set of characters in completely different roles, not only once from Tenchi Muyo to Pretty Sammy, but also from Pretty Sammy to Sasami Magical Girls Club. It also takes potshots at the Magical Girl themes that shows like Sailor Moon made popular, reusing sound effects from Tenchi Muyo, and occasionally refers to older anime shows.
