It's the first day of the new school year. 5th grader Ari and her best friends Suha and Min have started an after school activity called the Problem Solving Club. However, no one seems to have any problems that need to be solved. Disappointed Ari ends up discovering an unconscious hamster on the road. Amazingly...the hamster begins to speak. "I must find the magic ring..."

Somehow, when scrolling Youtube, I came across this, despite the title seeming as clickbaity as it could possibly be. I watched it in english dub, because there were no subs to be found. I would've prefered the original but meh.
(may contain spoilers)
Although the episodes went by so quickly (which is rare for me), the story was pretty cliché. The main character, Ari Jin is a normal girl with a decent personality, as she has some friends who unexpectedly gain magic along with her due to encountering a magic hamster later revealing to be a prince from Flowering Kingdom. The girls transform so that they
can collect enough hopeful energy, while our duo (Shuel and Trump(wheeze)) try to stop them. The story sometimes seems more as a slice of life then a magical girl thingy.
The art is actually good, I'd say it's more noticeable than the story itself. Although the anime seems to like making everything as pink as possible.
The episodes I watched had no OP nor ED, so I can't say anything about them. I'll see if I ever decide to watch them.
There was barely any character development, aside from Shuel, everyone seemed so repetitive over time, not sure why I continued watching it.
Enjoyment and Overall 6/10
I guess it was fair. If you want to watch it, do so right now as there's a whole season completed but if you're not Korean you'll have to watch the english dub, where Ari literally screams when she's speaking.
(spoilers: I just dislike how they had an opportunity for doing something with the whole "Love Triangle" thing, and wasted it. Then again there's Flowering Heart 2 so we'll see.)
Edit: So, after a discussion with whomever did the parody subs that happened to show up on 9Anime (the parody was titled Mixtape Madness), I haven't actually seen this anime. The first episode, the only real episode 9anime currently has up, seemed nice. Yes, a generic magical girl thing, but I've honestly seen worse. Kinda nostalgic like Sailormoon, but would actually be good for kids. We gotta raise our kids right (not that I have kids, but I'd raise them on positive anime, sure). Given that lots of unknown Korean studios have done outsource work for big name Japanese companies, I didn't see a huge
difference in anime quality. If anything, the animation looked more consistent than say... season 1 of Sailormoon Crystal. :P
It's okay,i guess. Reminds me of smile pretty cure,but this time i only watched one episode,and only the english version. Basically,this is sailor moon squished into the pretty cure franchise and fell on korea. Mediocre story. Ari's voice in the english version sounds like miyuki's voice in the english dub of smile pretty cure. Suha looks slightly like honoka from futari wa pretty cure. The art is outstanding because it's the same art style as smile pretty cure. The characters are awesome. The sound is awesome. Enjoyment is mediocre. Overall is mediocre. This is not actually an anime, and those symbols are korean symbols called
