Classification shoujo
Synopsis The basic story is that a witch called Tickle, who was confined in a picture book for doing too much mischief, is released by a girl called Tiko, and Tickle decides to live Tiko's house pretending to be her twin sister.
In the anime, Tickle lives with a typical Japanese family; using magic she has made everyone think that she and the older girl are twins. Tickle usually wears red shorts and often uses magic to solve everyday problems.
Review The style looks quite old, but the series has a simple charm and is quite watchable even if one cannot understand a word of dialogue. Watch it for township & school life and the annoying younger sister. Sometimes Tickle seems a bit malicious. And why is the Warner Bros "Sweetie Pie" in the end credits?
Credits Creator(s): Go Nagai ; Credits by R.L.
