|Title (English)||Magical Stage Fancy Lala|
|Title (Japanese)||Mahou no Stage Fancy Lala||Advertising|
|Notes||Japanese name: ?w-‚-@‚ÌƒXƒe?[ƒW?@ƒtƒ@ƒ"ƒV?[ƒ‰ƒ‰?
Derived from an OVA (Harbour Light Monogatari Fashion Lala Yori), which was adapted from the manga "Mahou no Stage Fancy Lala" [Magical Stage Fancy Lala] by Kasuga Rurika, (2 volumes) originally serialized in Ribon Mascot magazine.
|Synopsis||About Miho, a nine-year old wannabe manga artist who finds a magic pen and pad. Whatever clothes she draws with the pen become real, and she also changes to fit them. Soon she decides to become an idol singer, a sixteen year old idol singer, that is.|
|Review||A charming series, with quite well
observed scenes from Japanese daily life,and an intelligent script. In one episode, older-Miho attends an audition while almost
simultaneously taking part in a rather tacky its-a-knockout style sports competition as herself. There is also a mysterious theme, which is slowly revealed.

"Fancy Lala" - I just finished watching the Kids Station rebroadcast of
this wonderful show and I still get a smile thinking about it. "Fancy Lala"
was everything a mahou shoujo series ought to be, as well as being
intelligently plotted, and the magic didn't overwhelm the feeling of
familiarity and normality in the characterizations.
