Episode Summary

EDIT
Pretty Sammy, The Magical Girl
AIRED:
10-year-old fourth grader Sasami Kawai is sent one day to deliver a CD to a supposedly haunted mansion. There she meets Tsunami, Queen-to-be in Juraihelm. Tsunami bestows Sasami with magical powers and also a duty as Magical Girl Pretty Sammy.

Furious that she didn't get chosen to be queen, Ramia of Juraihelm sends her brother Rumiya to hypnotize Misao Amano, Sasami's best friend, into becoming Pixy Misa, the evil magical girl. Then Pixy Misa shows up and turns Tenchi's friends, Ryoko and Ayeka, into Love-Love monsters!

Will Pretty Sammy, with Ryo-ohki at her side, be able to turn them back to normal?moreless

  • Now that Sasami gets her own spinoff series, will she be able to stand in the world of magical girls?

    The Tenchi episodes involving Pretty Sammy were fairly popular, and the producers decide to spinoff the series starting with this OAV.



    The pilot episode is self-contained and runs about 45 minutes, and does not require that you watch the other OAV's or know too much about Tenchi. The general plot follows the magical girl concept; some powers that be pick an average girl in grade school, bestow her with some powers and have her be the magical girl superhero, mascot included. Rival powers create a nemesis magical girl from her best friend.



    So far so good. It had all the Tenchi characters: Tenchi plays Sasami's brother, Ayeka and Ryoko are rival high school students, Mihoshi and Kiyone were school teachers, Ryo-Ohki was the mascot who talks.



    But the interaction felt too much like a typical Tenchi episode where Tenchi, Ryoko, and Ayeka got all the attention playing themselves. Ryoko and Ayeka overshadow the plot with their bickering over who loves Tenchi more. They even turn into the Love-Love monsters that Pixy Misa summons and Pretty Sammy has to defeat.



    Sasami's transformation is typical magical girl anime, but not family friendly like in the later TV series where they totally blur out the body.



    The other details that would eventually make the TV series are in this OAV as well, but get lost easily.moreless
