Customer Reviews

Cute and fun to watch.
Amanda Koehler
I remember they were in cooking class but really it is a class where witches can practice how to use their magic.
Patricia P. Mincy
It really needs to stand on its own merits and in that regard it exceeds quite well.

It's billed as a spin-off of Tenchi Muyo and while this is not altogether incorrect, Sasami Magical Girls Club is more properly a spin off of Pretty Sammy/Magical Project S. Returning from Magical Project S are our spunky heroine Sasami, her dreadfully shy best friend Misao, Sasami's parents Hanoka and Ginji, Sasami's teacher Mihoshi, and one of my all-time favorite anime characters - the unforgettable Washu. However, the resemblance to the earlier Pretty Sammy material ends rather quickly. Indeed, even before you open the plastic wrap you will notice that the cover artwork and character designs are very different. So different, that I actually checked to see if AIC (Anime International Co.) even produced Sasami Magical Girls Club and I was pleasantly surprised to find out that they did.

The basic premise to the story is similar in many ways to Harry Potter. In ages of the distant past, normal humans and witches (magic users) co-existed harmoniously, but over time this changed and non-magical people began to fear and oppressively persecute the witches. So great was their plight that the witches retreated into a hidden world where they could leave in peace. Eventually this was forgotten by normal humans over the course of history, that is until new groups of magic users began to emerge randomly in the human world. And so enters Sasami and her friends.

There is so much about Sasami Magical Girls Club that is different from anything previously associated with Tenchi Muyo, that attempting to use the older franchise as a yardstick to judge this new series would fail miserably. It really needs to stand on its own merits and in that regard it exceeds quite well. The story is told very evenly without revealing too much too early or dragging it out too much.

First, it's not sah-summy - it's Sah-sah-mi!! Very irritating mistake...

Upon first glance, this is a KIDS show that likely could be viewed on whatever channel keeps hacking up popular anime from Japan and changing everything around to make everything happy, mindless, and complete with lessons for kids...
But sure enough, there are humorous adult themes mixed in and thankfully, the company chose to keep them in rather than edit them out. Example in point? One of the girl characters is in love with another girl character and practices voodoo magic on her rivals...Other than that angle, the character was very similar to Grenda in Petite Princess Yucie...
Another example, probably the best, is a joke where one teacher tells another that she will have to get on her knees and beg the mothers of the kids for forgiveness -the other teacher says that she'll have to do that for the fathers. It these type of jokes that you almost could miss that spice up the show and make it more entertaining.
The cast is taken directly from the Tenchi universe with Sasami, Washu, Mihoshi, and of course Ryo Ohki the CABBIT. Although Ryo has a new mischievous personality instead of cuddly.
Sasami is the title character -once the little sister alien in Tenchi turned magical girl in Magical Project S: Pretty Sammy and she has magical powers she inherited from her father. Misao also appears, but not as the amazing Pixy Misa rival, but rather shy awkward Misao.
Each girl has powers that they are not in control of; Sasami can move things, and the others range from little demons snakes/shadows, size changing, wind, voodoo...that's how they meet and become friends although they have nothing else in common.

I got this b/c I really like Tenchi Muyo. It's not Tenchi Muyo, but I really enjoyed it. It focuses on a group of friends and the strengthening of their relationships with each other. I think it's geared more toward younger viewers, but it teaches a lot of important life lessons. It's a lot of fun and for the price you can't go wrong.

No, there are no magical girl transformation sequences in this anime, but it's a more of beginners learning how to control their magic and deal with the ups and downs of friendship, romance, and life. It has the cuteness of something like Petite Princess Yucie, but has a bit more adult humor and themes.

For example, there are minor fan service scenes that I found to be inappropriate for the characters since the main cast are in elementary school. One of the characters apparently has a bit more of an idolization for another girl. Overall, it's not a huge turn off, but if you're not a fan of those things, be warned. If you can get past those, it's really just a cute story of friendship and romance.

Some fans complained about the English opening and the pronunciation of "Sasami", but I didn't really find anything to be fussed over concerning those complaints. The characters do sing a recurring song called "The Song of the Earth" which is sung best by the witches themselves and a character named Amitav.

In the second season, things are a little more serious since it involves a conspiracy concerning the witches who want to destroy the human world. The girls' friendship will be tested as they will have to deal with betrayal from one of their group.

All in all, this anime is a very cute story of tried and true friendship and romance.
