Often Hilarious Magical Girl Parody
6 January 2003 | by (Maplewood, MN) – See all my reviews

Another spin-off of the Tenchi Muyo! cast, this is a bit different. It's a spin-off of a spin-off! Sasami appeared first as Pretty Sammy in the Mihoshi Special for a couple of minutes and now she has her own show. The voice acting is superb and the story line is well done. The show doesn't take itself too seriously at times (ex. Pixy Misa yelling "Strike the set!" after her dramatic entrance and the background returns to normal). Her name is Sasami Kawaii and she is recruted by Tsunami to create peace on Earth to help restore balance of Gemini so Tsunami can become queen of Jurihelm. The 2nd in line candidate for queen, Ramia, tries to sabotage Tsunami and Pretty Sammy by sending her little brother Rumiya to transform Sasami's best friend Misao into the Magical Girl Pixy Misa!

All of the regular Tenchi Muyo cast makes an appearance during the series. Examples are Tenchi as a filmmaker, Ryoko as royal guard to the queen, Aeka as the far end-of-the-line candidate for queen bent on destroying the Earth and Washu as a very eccentric and energetic genius who is teaching the science class at Sasami's school as a pretext to study magic.

A very funny and occasionally touching story fills this series and keeps you wanting to watch more and then watch it over again. Almost all of the characters have a comedic moment at one point or another but Pixy Misa steals the show whenever she decides to turn up to cause trouble for Sammy. Close on Misa's heels is Rumia as the scene stealer of the show. Whenever these two are on, the show takes off. I'm not an expert on "Magical Girl" types of shows but "Magical Girl Pretty Sammy" makes fun of them whenever it can and does it very well. A must see for a good laugh and it will lift your spirits on a dreary day.
