Save Me! Lollipop is an animated fantasy romantic comedy developed by Sunshine Corporation based on the Japanese manga of the same name written by Michiyo Kikuta that follows seventh grader Nina Yamada, a caring and child-like teenager with an aggressive temper. When Nina accidentally swallows a Crystal Pearl, a necessary object needed by sorcerers for their wizard exams, two young wizards decide to protect her from other wizards until their potion to get the pearl back is completed. Unfortunately for Nina, her new guardians tend to be a bit of a pain. Zero is rude, cocky, and tends to antagonize Nina while Ichii is unbelievably polite and cannot seem to keep the other two from fighting with each other. Ichii and Zero did not mention to Nina, however, that even with their protection, she has become a target for any other potential sorcerers looking to get the Crystal Pearl for themselves ' a fact that often puts them in danger.
