There is a small village called Jimuna on the continent of Jamu Jamu. This village is home to a girl named Kukuri. She is the last descendant of the Migu Migu Tribe. She is raised by an old witch who teaches her the secret magic of the tribe, but Kukuri is not a good student.

In the same village lives a boy named Nike. He has been raised by very strict parents. They discipline their son to become a brave hero of the village. Nike himself does not want to be a hero at all, but he grows up to become a mighty boy.

One day the king of the village, Kodai, recruits troops to fight against the ruler of the darkness, Giri. Kukuri and Nike are accepted. The two children, the strong but reluctant hero Nike, and the eager but unskilled little witch Kukuri, set out on a wonderful journey full of adventures and friendship.

One of my favourite animes of all time. It's a charming and light-hearted fantasy comedy that doesn't take itself too seriously. I've watched Spirited Away, Berserk, One Piece and many animes more highly rated than this one but to me this beats most of them. Every episode is such a joy to watch and it never failed to bring a smile to my face. No anime with a higher rating can accomplish this except for maybe Gintama if you exclude the nonsensical and plot heavy episodes. And as for its gag potential this one has episodes that made me gag as hard as some of ...

This is my first anime that I liked~ When i was young, there's only slam dunk and mahoujin guru guru which impressed me. It gives me a lot of inspiration. This anime also influence me into drawing. To be frank, I am not a fan of chibi but the way this anime present it (other than main characters *1/3, they're all normal*with 1/4,1/5 porportion)~ It is an anime that won't give you time to rest(you will laugh about every min~no time for you to breathe) Furthermore, it is something you won't get bore with ~ I watched the chinese version of it more than 20 ...

Mahoujin Guru Guru is probably the craziest, wackiest anime I've ever seen. Slapstick is constant - nothing is ever serious for more than a minute, if that long.

In Plain Old Village (that's actually the name), Nike has been undergoing "training" since he was very small, as his parents are adamant that he become a dashing hero someday. Conveniently, just as the boy has grown old enough to take care of himself (age 13), that's when all the trouble starts. When his dad finds out that the king is looking to recruit a hero to deal with this resurrected evil, one thing leads to another and ...
