Synopsis

Four Netherworld Princesses have come to the human world; witch Uma, vampiress Pachira, werewolf Liru, and android Aiko. But they know nothing about human life and their mistakes make up their daily adventures. Meanwhile, the evil Dr. K-ko wants proof of the supernatural to gain admittance into the scientific elite and what better than one, or all, of the princesses -- if her plans didn’t have a tendency to go awry.

I'm not really a fan of ecchi comedies, and at first glance that what Renkin San-kyuu Magical? Pokaan (or MagiPoka as it's more commonly known), looks like. However, the old aphorism about never judging a book by it's cover applies to many anime and manga titles, and this is one of them. Anyone who labels this show as an ecchi comedy has probably missed most of the humour in it. Yes, there are ecchi moments, but unlike many other shows (e.g. Eiken, Amaenaide Yo!, Girls Bravo et al), MagiPoka has very strong anarchic and surrealistic comedy elements.

In other words, this series has more in common read more

Imagine a flat share with a female vampire, a female werewolf, a loli witch, a female cyborg and an invisible girl who all long for good looking boys and you have Renkin San-kyuu Magical? Pokaan (I'll use "Magical Pokaan" for the rest of the review).

Story: As usual for slice-of-life comedy series there isn't that much of a continuing story. To be precise every episode consists of two short completed stories which have nothing to do with the other episodes, which makes this series good for non-continuing watching. Magical Pokaan is good for inserting a random episode in your anime watching just when you need read more

Where is the #$%@()&^ story!
That is what I yelled when I finished this series. I got trolled from the opening video to expect some sort of comedy going psycho along the way. It was back in the day when the community in my country had no idea of what a series would be about and Elfen Lied was on its peak. So yeah, watching the intro made me think it would be something similar.

So this is a series about four princesses from some magic kingdom coming to the human realm. Why? Just for the heck of it. They are also based on famous monsters. Why? read more

a great anime that i picked up by reading the name liru the werewolf and then searching on Google and finding the anime , it was great and i liked the randomness but the series ended at episode 12 and i would love to know why but i cant find the answer so i guess it just ran out of contract or something. :l

Recommendations

Both of these anime have cute characters, humour, and pure plotless fun.
The only difference is that Lucky Star deals with everyday people while Magipoka has magical creatures in it. So if you're ever tired and just want something mindless to watch, go for it!
These both have very similar styles of comedy with lots of sight gags and general silliness. They are also both very slice of life, with very little to no character development or ongoing plot to get in the way of the craziness. They're also both ecchi, but self aware of it.
In Renkin San-kyuu Magical? Pokaan, several characters are in a new environment, while in Non Non Biyori only one is. Both have a largely female cast, and character-based humor. Both shows have an element of whimsy, but while Majipoka is supernatural, Non Non Biyori is more simply carefree.
Both place fantastic creatures in the modern world. Magipoka focuses more on culture shock though.
Both stories are more episodic than season length arc, kind of random, and humorous.
Both series make over the top Moe humour, with similar feel to both series.
