Storyline

Yuu Morisawa is a 10 year old girl living in her parent's crepe shop in Creamy-ga oka. Alien Pino Pino rewards her for helping him find his way home by offering a magic wand for an entire year. Two cat-like aliens named Nega and Poji help her discover her new powers. She transforms into an older self with a few magic words and is discovered by impresario Shingo Tashibana who needs a singer for a TV show. Under the name Creamy Mami, Yuu starts a very successful career at Parthenon Productions as an Idol pop singer and becomes more famous than the studio's other jealous star Megumi Ayase. However, she still has to cope with her daily life as a school girl which proves to be quite difficult considering the boy she loves, Toshio Ohtomo is Creamy Mami's number one fan. Yuu must preserve her real identity at all cost. Should anyone see her transform, she would loose her powers and remain Creamy Mami forever. Written by Greg Philip {greg_philip@hotmail.com}

Creamy Mami like X-files...?
5 May 2008 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

I agree with Greg but not totally. In this series there are also good fighting scenes & ugly monsters (and that's not a bad thing)! Actually, in my opinion: 1. yeah, drawings are 80's (and show different quality depending on which episode, higher or lower, sometimes tremendously high!), yet I think it still can work, even if compared with those strongly "coloured" current anime. Other jap cartoons of the same age & type (magic girls) can't be broadcasted anymore, while Creamy currently is.

(Few words about dressings: of course truly 80's, but many many times seem now days fashion! After almost 30 years!)

2. Monsters: wow this series is X-files in nuce... I mean that a main plot (pop music idol Creamy Mami's career growing in the show business up to movie star vs. Yu's everyday life issues) develops through the series by using different genres in each episode in a rondo like way (sf, fantasy, ghost story, then again sf, fantasy, gangster movie and so on).

3. Legends (also urban) and main sf & fantasy topics are well known to authors - evidence by their use more than by quotations. It crosses the ordinary life of a family and a business Company in familiar though lacquered Japan of the 80's with suspense, thrilling, sense of wonder - where a locus amoenus always brings a Verfremdungseffekt. Ironic in not trite way, this series is really enjoyable by adults I think.
