Moetan can best be described from the popular tags on the database. It's a comedy about a group of loli magical girls who behave moe.As in any other loli anime before this, it starts off with a walk to school. Nijihara Ink just happens to act all clumsy and cute as she tries to get to school. Hilarity ensues...





Story (Mediocre)
It's an already been used story line thats been beaten down so many times that you can tell if you'll love it or hate it based on the first episode. Judging from the first episode you'll get an eyeful of purposely cute situations mixed read more

Moetan is one of those series that is memorable in one way or another. It is truly unique, being able to make its viewers react in ways one would not usually react. To me, it has the most brilliant form of parody - it parodies itself. For any parody, one of the main concerns is whether or not the viewers will "get" the references thrown at them, but in Moetan, that isn't the case. What you see on the screen will be the main subject for amusement, not obscure references that leave half of the viewers in the dark. And that is the really the read more

Moetan is more of a comedy rather than a romance, centered around 4 main characters that have magical powers.

The show was really more of a cute kid show rather than an adult oriented one. There was a lot of ecchiness and near pornographic transformation scenes. Although, the show was comedy oriented, I didn't find myself laughing my ass off (LMAO) or anything like that. Quite frankly it was pretty bland, but there were a few good moments here and there filled with moe.

The story is centered around a girl named Ink. She some how coincidentally found her way to becoming a magical girl who must read more

Anime: Kodomo no Jikan (TV)
Kodomo no Jikan shares many attributes with Moetan in terms of characters and appeal. While Moetan is more focused on magical girls, the ecchi fanservice and character designs are similar in terms of the audience they're appealing too.

Anime: Weiß Survive
Both shows have entertaining jokes, a lot of ecchi, perverted male characters, and a tendency to playfully subvert tropes whenever possible.

Anime: Kämpfer
Small or stuffed animals, who assist magical girls, make jocular comments and break the fourth wall.

Additionally, both shows have a lot of ecchi.

Anime: Kaitou Tenshi Twin Angel: Kyun Kyun☆Tokimeki Paradise!!
Nijihara Ink's transformations are very similar to the Twin Angel's; clothes are stripped, twirl around, while new clothes are magically "put on" (sorry don't know how to word), and they are both transformed into fighting girls. They both use gadgets (Nijihara ink: cell phone/Twin Angels: pocket bell like thing) to transform.

Nijihara Ink and Minazuki Haruka look very similar, with the same seiyuu Yukari Tamura, same hair style, hair color, etc.
Kuroi Sumi and Kannazuki Aoi also look similar, with hair style (ahoge; but Aoi's ahoge doesnot make gestures) and color.

Both Shoujo battle anime. Aoi and Haruka use the same cheesy attack  read more
