Atsuko "Akko-chan" Kagami (known variously as "Stilly," "Caroline," or "Julie" in Western versions of the anime) is an energetic elementary school girl who has an affinity for mirrors. One day, her favorite mirror which was given to Akko by her mother (or in some versions, by her father, as a present from India) is broken, and she prefers to bury it in her yard rather than throw it to the trash can. In her dreams, she is contacted by a spirit (or in some cases the Queen of the Mirror Kingdom) who is moved that the little girl would treat the mirror so respectfully and not simply throw it away. Akko-chan is then given the gift of a magical mirror and taught an enchantment that will allow her to transform into anything she wishes.

This mirror holds a very special power that allows Akko to transform into anything that she wills by chanting a magical phrase "Tekumaku Mayakon". The ...

Preliminary (1/94 eps)
As a magical girl anime enthusiast, i wanted to check out the anime that served as the pioneer for the FIRST REAL magical girl transformation.

I had only watched one episode of it which is the VERY FIRST episode that has been fansubbed into English. I've gotta say that although the VERY FIRST transformation sequence in magical girl history is VERY underwhelming, i give it a pass because it was made in the 1960s so the creators had little opportunity to make it MORE alluring.

It is still kind of entertaining to watch even if it's just one episode especially when you compare it to the magical ...
