Ah yes.A Vampire, a werewolf,a witch and an android.What more could you possible want from an anime.Although I myself would prefer to watch something like this as an action anime where all the characters are some crazy,overpowered,badass characters (especially the werewolf),but I am not really complaining as this turns out to be a comedy.In fact,already at the beginning of the anime,I fell in love with all the main characters (except for the android).So if you are looking for something crazy,random,fun,interesting and filled with panty shots anime,you have come to the right place.



Well the story is based on Liru (the werewolf),Pachira (the vampire),Uma (the witch) and Aiko (the android) who have come to the human world and are trying to fit in it.And except for a few times,they really do.The 4 heroines of the anime often find themselves in a strange situation,competing with each other or fighting over a man.
The first episode doesn't tell much about their origins,but it turn out that a researcher of ''creatures of the underworld'' named Dr. K-Ko and her assistant Hongo have been trying to get their hands on one of these creatures for a long time now and are trying to expose them to the world.And beyond their expectations,they don't catch just one of these creatures in a single night,but instead all three of them.The only one who wasn't cough in a trap was Uma,becouse it is scientifically proved that witches don't exist.Ironically enough Uma can't use her spells very well,but somehow manages to free them.From that point on the randomness of this anime just reaches its maximum,till the end of the episodes.The episodes are separated in two halves,each telling a completely different story or finishing the previous.So if you get bored of something you might skip,or if you haven't watched an episode and directly watch the next one,you won't be missing anything from the plot of the story.I myself enjoyed every part of this anime and had a great laugh,although I wish it had an ending for it just ended like there is going to be a bunch of more episodes.



The animation is great for its time,but I think they could have done better at some point,but I don't think that's really a problem.Now only if those animated characters could become real.Hmm...



The sound is pretty good and the voice acting is very well done,with fitting voices to the characters themselves.The opening is very well made,but I think they could have done better with the ending.



The best part of this anime is definitely the characters.They all are pretty different,just like the difference in their species.
Liru,as being my favorite of the bunch,can offend be found somewhere outside playing (especially of its raining)at a meat shop or sleeping.She likes wild man,having fun and meat the most.But I don't get why her werewolf form looks like a cute little dog,or even as some people say,a cute looking cat.
Pachira,being a vampire and all,looks often for pray,thus sucking its prays blood out and turning it into a slave (but I think that never really happend).She likes handsome,dignified man with delicious blood.Sun can't hurt her,but she still wears a box on her head to protect herself.
Uma is always bright,lighthearted,careless and funny.She reads manga and doesn't have a ideal man for her dreams.Her fails in magic often lead to a very good view for sore eyes and sure mix up the other characters in an awkward situation as well.
And Aiko likes to cook,be shy and other random stuff.She is looking for a human body,so that she can be a human once and for all.




I wish there were more episodes(except for the 3 OVAS),but all good things must come to an end sooner or later.The anime is pretty decent and if you are looking for fun,entertainment and for an interesting comedy,then don't hesitate to watch Magical Pokan!

Yeah Liru is definately my favorite of the 4, even if she did finish the job of a certain extinction, but they are all pretty good characters.
