A wacky hilarious comedy-parody for Tenchi fans...
24 December 2001 | by (Cape Town) – See all my reviews

I'm commenting here only on the three part OAV (Original Anime Video) version of Pretty Samy (not Magical Project S). This is basically a hilarious spin off from Tenchi Muyo, where Sasami (now Tenchi's sister) plays the lead. Other Tenchi Muyo characters also appear and as usual Ayeka and Ryo-ohko are fighting over Tenchi. Sasami acquires special powers whereby she can transform into a magical girl and well use powers of reason and 'love' to try to make the world better - in essence fight her nemesis - a similar magical girl (just that she is bent on evil). When love fails - Sasami resorts to physical force :). Episode 2 features someone very famous from the real world (of software), it's incredibly funny that Pioneer/AIC put him in. Pretty Samy is not a show to be taken seriously, it's a slapstick comedy anime with enough comedy to split your sides, if you love Tenchi Muyo - you will enjoy Pretty Samy. Pretty Samy is also in a way a parody of the many anime Magical Girl shows the Japanese like to produce.
