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

Supernaturally funny! What a surprise with this anime!!!

When I saw pictures from this anime, I thought nothing much about it, it was just another anime to check out, but from the start it became a memorable one. It 's just one story about the life of four stereotype characters from tales: vampire, werewolf, android and witch, all of them innocent girls but with a ecchi touch, just a little, making things incredibly funny and unusual, trying to living in peace with humans in our mortal world; isn't the biggest plot ever but is so easy to love very quickly these girls from the bottom of read more

Majipoka isn’t exactly what you might think it is. Unless, of course, you think it is a mostly disconnected set of episodes filled with absurdist humor, and largely free of ecchi content. Majipoka is more cute and/or moe than ecchi. There are some mildly ecchi moments, but they serve the humor rather than distract from it.

The show makes great fun of the modern world and of pop culture. I like that kind of humor, especially when it avoids specific references to other media. Majipoka does just that. Enjoying it requires no familiarity with any other shows or media.

Even if you aren’t immediately thrilled with Majipoka, read more

Anime: Ninin ga Shinobuden
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.

Anime: Lucky☆Star
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!

Anime: Namiuchigiwa no Muromi-san
Both place fantastic creatures in the modern world. Magipoka focuses more on culture shock though. 
reportRecommended by colonelpanic
Anime: Yuyushiki
Both have girls discussing random nonsense for comedic effect. In both, comedy is effected or enhanced by the interplay among major characters.

Anime: Non Non Biyori
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.

Anime: Bokusatsu Tenshi Dokuro-chan
Both series make over the top Moe humour, with similar feel to both series.
