So, for those of you who happened to stumble upon this page, I'm sure you're wondering what this 1 episode OAV even is!
Well, it's a gag crossover special of the two 1996 OVA "Magic Users Club" and "Shamanic Princess." For those of you who haven't seen those two OVAs I highly recommend watching them.
Shamanic Princess is a deceptively cutesy looking magical girl show that is actually dark, violent and intense. The main magical girl Tiara and her "best friend" turn into demons and trying to choke each other, and cry blood out their eyes, it's metal as heck!! It is one of my favorite series
of all time and that's why I absolutely had to see this OVA so that I could say I consumed everything Shamanic Princess.
Magic Users Club is also good, it was the more successful series of the two, it starts out as a cute ecchi comedy series about a club of witches, but it gets deceptively dark later. For those of you who watch the series and think it looks a lot like Princess Tutu, you'd be correct both series were made by Junichi Sato and both have similiar staff. Both Tutu and that show are about clumsy yet cute red headed girls who are trying to learn magic and both of them have moments of the main characters meeting horrifying creatures and standing up against impossible odds. They're both pretty good, although the original Ova of Magic Users Club is particularity great for its amazing animation. The TV series isn't quite as good visually, at least.
Anyway, both series in full are on Crunchyroll and Shamanic Princess is on even more streaming services including the app Tubi!
So with that out of the way, what exactly does this special include? Well it's basically a short epilogue to these two amazing shows, and also filled with some jokes of the characters from both shows crossing over and meeting each other.
This is really cool for multiple reasons. One is that these series were created by two entirely different people, Shamanic Princess being a product of Studio CLAMP (Cardcaptor Sakura, Magic Knight Rayerarth) and Magic Users Club like I said once again was created by Juninho Sato.
Shamanic Princess is so incredibly violent, dark and intense (It definetely has the most gore of any CLAMP magical girl series that I've seen) so seeing the characters be happy in this special was so so great.
So yeah, If you're a fan of this series this short will give you those good vibes. Watch the show on a site like Nyaa and hope that someday an Hd version gets uploaded to Crunchyroll in order to really finish out all the other Shamanic Princess and Magic Users Club content that they have
