Synopsis:

In a magical world, the naive and spunky Padadu is training to be a magical girl -- a title reserved for those who have defeated many in battles, and earns them a right to visit Earth. Along with her arch rival Pipin, seductive and manipulative Myumyu and the fugitive Nonononn, Padadu and her magical sentient fish costume travel the world in search of fun and adventure! But the tyrant queen Purilun and her lackey Zucchini are hot on their trail; will Padadu ever become a real magical girl?

Bokusatsu Tenshi Dokuro-chan

Bokusatsu Tenshi Dokuro-chan
  • OVA (4 eps x 25 min)
  • 2005

Angels are genteel and graceful messengers from Heaven, right? Wrong! Sakura Kusakabe will create an invention that inadvertently ruins the future for womankind and thus, angels from the future have arrived to do the only reasonable thing: assassinate him! Fortunately for Sakura, one of them, Dokuro-chan, takes a liking to him but her intentions to protect him prove downright lethal. When Sakura’s not dodging her spiked bat Excalibolg, he’s fighting for his life on river escapades. And when he’s not quick enough, Dokuro-chan’s catchy incantation brings him back to life! Bludgeoning and blood splatters aside, can Dokuro-chan save the one she loves without damaging the future?

Dokuro-chan and Magical Play are parodies of the magical girl genre (actually, it's possible that Magical Play isn't so much a parody as it is a very odd take on the genre, I still can't tell). Regardless, both feature magical girls with strange personal themes, ecchi elements, gratuitous violence (much more so in Dokuro-chan), a happy-go-lucky atmosphere that doesn't quite fit the story, and a cast of super-powered idiots.

Di Gi Charat

Di Gi Charat
  • TV (16 eps x 5 min)
  • 1999

One day, Dejiko, Puchiko and the strange ball-shaped Gema-Gema crash land their UFO in the middle of Akihabara. Without a single yen to their name they have nowhere to go, but following an unexpected and generous offer from the manager of a nearby store, the trio begin working at the shop in exchange for renting the room upstairs. Alongside Dejiko’s self-confessed rival Rabi-en-Rose, as well as a mysterious bear that has mastered the ability to appear happy, sad, depressed and angry all at once, the insanity is only just beginning! From shooting window shoppers with Dejiko’s Laser Eye Beam and the appearance of a bizarre farting impostor, to a sudden attack on the city by Godzilla, life at Gamers is certainly livening up.

Di Gi Charat, like Magical Play, is completely spastic and random. It's just as full of weird transformations, wacky sidekicks, and laughs. Definitely check it out.

Di Gi Charat Nyo

Di Gi Charat Nyo

Di Gi Charat Nyo is an alternate universe to the Di Gi Charat franchise. Dejiko and Puchiko arrive at Earth for the first time, and arrange to stay with an aspiring toy store owner. Many of the old gang are back, in different roles/characters, such as Rabi-en-Rose, and others. One thing is for sure -- it still has the same quirky randomness that goes along with the name Di Gi Charat!

Bored of high ideals like love and friendship? then these series are exactly what you need, enjoy infinitely cynical cute girls. Both series features main characters who are amazing even their supposedly evil enemies with their selfish acts.

Galaxy Angel

Galaxy Angel
  • TV (26 eps x 14 min)
  • 2001

Combined, the ever-hungry airheaded Milfeulle, voluptuous Ranpha, cold-as-ice Vanilla, regal Mint and aggressive gun-wielding Forte make up the Galaxy Angels -- an intergalactic team dedicated to finding the elusive Lost Technology! Joined by the once suicidal missile AI (now in the body of a stuffed animal), these girls must complete their mission at all costs! From finding lost pets to helping a pizzeria in debt, to infiltrating outposts full of monkeys, the work of a Galaxy Angel is never complete...

Galaxy Angel and Magical Play are both very spastic and random series that follow the same format: wacky misadventures all around! I am positive if you liked one, you'd like the other.

If you like evil heroes who care only about their own goals these series are for you.

Eveybody there, cares a little about their companions, but they still get along well and look like real friends.
