|Review|| As the Japanese title indicates, this is in fact Minky Momo, one of the popular Magical Girl type of anime, intended for little Japanese girls. It's been sold in the West as a children's video. The heroine, Princess of a magical land sent to Earth, can turn into a grown-up female to solve people's problems. Don't be put off, in fact almost anything short of nuclear war can happen in this movie. And mostly it does; it's a real riot! And beautifully designed. Rarely is so much fun had for so little expenditure.
