Sakura Kinomoto never imagined that by opening a book in her father's library, she'd be responsible for releasing wild magic into the world, yet that's exactly what she did. Too powerful to be let loose on the world, the magical Clow cards were sealed away long ago by their creator, Clow Reed. But all is not lost, for the guardian beast, Keroberos, was sealed along with the cards! Can Sakura, with the help of Keroberos, retrieve the cards before they wreak havoc on the town?
Taruto, a young cat-girl, lives with her masters, Iori and Kinako, in a world where she and any other cat-person appears to be nothing more than a normal animal. Believed to be the descendant of an ancient clan of cat-people with magical powers, Taruto can't help but make many friends and enemies in their new home of Okashina. Can Taruto discover her roots, while managing to not foul up her magical powers at least once? Only time and an awful lot of practice will tell!
They both have similar first episodes. In which two girls wander in their house trying to figure out if it's haunted and find little friends that help them out with their magic and adventures. Both funny and dramatic, but they have different hypes.
Liru the werewolf, Pachira the vampire, Aiko the android and Uma the witch have just moved to Tokyo, but they are terribly inexperienced with everyday life. The littlest things like sunlight plagues Pachira's existence, Uma's magic never quite goes as planned, Aiko finds her huge android weight embarrassing and Liru's obsession with food creates endless problems. Despite this, the girls still have a blast exploring the life of a human. From the Tanabata festival to browsing TV shopping channels, from donating blood to figuring out the postal system, the girls always manage to have a good time.
Umi in Magical Pokan is a parody of Sakura from Cardcaptor Sakura. It doesn't take much effort to see the blatant copied elements, from her magic baton, to the astrological magic circles that appear when either uses magic, both are directly copied--even the attention to changing her costume when using her magic. Umi even does a magic show that has cards as part of the act--and her pets are two magic rabbit like creatures, which look awfully similar to the Black and White Monokas that appear in another Clamp series (that also has Sakura in it), Tsubasa Chronicles. It just doesn't stop there, though, how Umi acts is often like Sakura, from being overly cute and walking the line between earnest and obnoxious to the very chibi-like expressionists and red dot under her eye, denoting her youth. All that being said, you need a fairly open minded sense of humor to accept Magical Poken because it can be rather---ecchi at times. But if you are alright with parody, even parody that would be considered distasteful to some, then I strongly suggest checking out both series
One clear festive evening, Lucia, a mermaid princess, rescues a young boy from drowning. With him, she leaves the source of her beautiful singing voice: a pink pearl necklace. Several years later, Lucia has grown into a young woman, and embarks on a quest to the human world to reclaim her pearl and find her lost love.
This series is just as funny and cute as CCS. Although it's not a masterpiece like this, the plot is too short of it. The 7 mermaids of the 7 seas all have distinct personalities and never gets boring. It will keep you watching till the very end, just like Card Captor Sakura.
