book cover

Fantasy Novel

Notes Japanese name: ?w--@̃Xe?[W?@t@"V?[?
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.
Classification shoujo
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.
Recommended.(GC) A sleepy Miho

"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.
