Miho Shinohara is a care-free third-grader and an aspiring manga artist. One day, she encounters Mogu and Pigu - two lost fairies disguised as stuffed animals. In exchange for staying at her home until they find a way to return to their own world, the fairies give Miho a special sketch pad and pencil that enable her to magically create real objects from what she draws. With the pen, Miho can also transform into Lala, a beautiful teenage girl created from her manga art. As Lala, she is discovered by a talent agency, and so begins her adventures from an ordinary school girl to a model to an idol singer.

One of the Best Anime i seen I don't know why it's not famous and got low votes. I will be honest in this review and I will try my best no to write more spoilers.

Story (9/10) Great Story about a girl who become famous celebrity

Art (7/10) Good Art for 90's Anime it's feel like your watching 2006 or 2007 Anime

Sound (8/10) Very Good Sound singer and Songs

Characters (10/10) Outstanding Characters specially Lala

As someone who's more versed with magical girl series such as Sailor Moon, Utena, Yuki Yuna, Madoka, aka the shows where the heroines are often going against dark agencies and battling against baddies to save the world, Fancy Lala is far from that beaten path. But, still, the catchy opening and exceptional artwork (considering the time and perhaps budget) were enough to have me hooked at first glance.

As simple as the premise was - young girl encounters magical creatures who grant her the power to transform into the (older) girl she finds herself cartooning about in her spare time - there were so many poignant ...

This series is teeming with creativity, a pair of prehistoric dinosaurs shrink themselves into chibi forms, that resemble stuffed animals; and then, imbue an eight-year-old with a magical sketchbook that can create clothes and even has the ability to create sentient life. Yes, in one episode Miho alchemically creates a pet cat. As you can expect from that statement, this series is bonkers, but can also be super fun and has some really serious moments! Too bad the ending was a huge downer!

⚠️ This review will have spoilers ⚠️


I would have probably rated this series the same ranking as Creamy Mami (a 3★), if there ...
