Spun off from one of the ideas shown during the "Parallel universe" saga of the Tenchi Muyo TV series, "Magical Girl Pretty Samy" is the story of a fourth grader, Sasami Kawaii, and her mis-adventures as the chosen superhero of the future queen of Juraihelian, Tsunami. With her guardian, a brown cat-rabbit named Ryo-ohki, Sasami fights the meddling(and English speaking) Pixy Misa, and her notoriously humorous "Love-love monsters".
While this might seem like a rather redundant plot-line, what makes it stand out is the relationship between Sasami and her best friend Misao Amano. Misao is your sterotypical Japanese girl - pressured by her mother to be the best pianist she can, Misao is often neglected by her mother and spends a lot of time alone with her homework. Her father had abandoned her at a young age to pursue his own career, so, Pixy Misa acts as therapy for the troubled girl. Eventually, Sasami finds out the alter-identity of her best friend, and the creators dedicated a lovely two-episode saga towards that friendship.
I found that this anime was rather touching, and very good for children of all ages.moreless
