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

If you like comedy, cute characters, and fan service, this is the perfect series. And I mean perfect, filled to the brim with great laughs, carefully designed character archetypes, and a plethora of nosebleed moments. Character design by POP, best character designer to grace the medium.

This series definitely has it's priorities straight. It doesn't beat around the bush trying to saturate itself with some sort of semblance of storyline depth, and doesn't waste any time trying to feed you some crap about emotional complexities of characters. It gets right to the point: cute girls, laughs, panties, charming moments, and plenty of one piece swimsuits. Even read more

As an anime oabout being bad at speeaking English I shall be typing this review without looking at the keyboard. I personally found this anime to be enjoyable, but then again I do like lolies which oare a main draw to this show.

The story is about Ink-hcan or whatever her civilian name was and he goald to make her lover interesti her boyfriend. She does this by becoming a magical girl and teaching him EnEngrish. As Western viewers it sounds funny to therear this. This was adapted from a book trying to teach people how to speak English the otaku way, but it had a read more
