The first two examinees she meets are Zero and Ichi, who, upon discovering that she accidentally swallowed the pearl, drag her off to find a way to get the pearl back. Unfortunately, there is no way for them to get the pearl out at the moment, so they have to wait until Christmas, the last day of the exam. Zero and Ichi then decide that they will protect Nina from the other examinees until they find a way to get the pearl out of her.
The plot is not completely awful, but it's not amazing either. Since the anime cut out parts from the manga, there was not a lot of character development, especially with relationships. The Nina and Zero pairing felt forced and cheesy at best, and Ichi was just left at the side. The ending was rushed and messy, which did not help.
the color choice is good, but the animation tends to be lacking. There are many occasions where the faces are proportioned poorly, and it's easy to tell that the show suffered from lazy animation techniques.
the music is very typical for a shoujo, especially the opening and the ending themes. Voice actors are okay, but I did not enjoy listening to Nina whining and complaining.
The cast is thankfully varied, with each character having different reasons for why they decided to take the magical exam. However, some of them are quite annoying, and the characterization is limited, at best.
As someone who has read the manga, I expected a little more out of this show. It was a show whose entertainment tended to vary from episode to episode, with some being especially painful to watch and others not as much.
If you are a diehard fan of shoujo, then this is probably a series you would try. Fortunately, this series is short, which means that if you don't like it but are watching it anyways, it won't take up too much of your time. read more

I thought it was very good most of the time. But you couldn't see anything but mistakes. The characters were a little rough and I would of liked to see a little more action.
I liked it because of the romance between the three characters and the ways of the story.
I didn't like how the story was the same every episode.
As someone already said its plain boring but it entertains you for awhile until you get bored of it. As said before its VERY short. 13 episodes or 26? I would choose 26. I mean come on. Seriously! You need more episodes to complete the series. That's not even enough for a season.
Trust me it's good but don't waste your money on it.

The story is fairly simple. 2 magicians, Zero and Ichii, are from the magic world and they've entered a competition to become full-fledged wizards, only the item they have to obtain is eaten by a girl named Nina, who wishes that the person she'd fall in love with would fight for her and defend her. The fighting and defending part actually came in right away because everyone else in the competition is after her now, so there's barely a moment of peace for her. Ending was a little strange, could remain open for a season 2, but I highly doubt it.
Artwork, everyone in the show looked like little kids, what can I say. I'm fairly certain all of them are at least like 13 or 14, but they look like 11 and 12 year olds, so it was kind of hard to remember, "Oh yeah, they're teenagers". That and the bright colors everywhere made it seem like something found on Cartoon Network. Just think Bakugan and Pokemon, you'll remember some of the colors from that show and know what I'm talking about.
Sound, ehh... the only actress that made it worth watching was Brittney Karbowski's voice. Not her BEST work, but still good. All the rest of the characters had awesome voice actors and actresses, but they didn't suit the character's personalities.
Characters... not much to say about them. They were fairly unoriginal. Their looks, hair styles, clothing, all of them I've seen before, but Nina's hair and Forte's outfit were the only thing's I've never seen anywhere else. Characters were lovable in some way, like San and Forte, they're a good team, and Nina and Zero make a good couple, I mean it's obvious they're both into eachother, so why not.
I enjoyed the show overall, got some good laughs, especially the spa episode, I was laughing so hard, and I felt bad for Zero like the entire episode. It could have been better if they changed a few things, but it was good. I hope this review helped. read more

Story: 4 One of the most cliche yet! It's just a girl eating cake who mistakenly swallows a crystal pearl and when these two guys find out they just say "OH WE GOTS TO PROTECT HER" and stuff. It was boring watching this series because it was just the guys protecting the girl. Nothing that got my attention.
Art: 8 The art was ok. The characters looked cute.
Sound:8 The opening song was pretty good. Not bad.
Character: 6 I hated the female lead SO much! She's so annoying! Most of the time she's just like "OH MY PRINCE! YOU GUYS ARE MY PRINCES". It gets really really really annoying and just makes the storyline worse.
Overall: 6 Was not the best series I've ever watched to be honest. I liked it at first but then I just got annoyed. read more

After that, I read the manga, I fell in love with it, so I thought to myself, "Let's watch the Anime!"
I regret that choice.
I've only watched 5 eps only because I watched about 3 on "Hero!" and 2 on the internet.
I only finished the 2nd internet episode because I thought it MIGHT improve.
All I could see were mistakes.
It seemed rushed, it held some of the charm the manga had for me, but it just seemed... rushed.
I don't know why, it was just... ugh... sorry... ugh...
The music was nice but the English dub just didn't do it for me.
There wasn't much room for Char development with the 13-episodes and, like I said, everything seemed rushed.
I. Did. Not. Enjoy. It.
Except the song.
I just hoped it was better, considering the manga. read more
