As promised, a review of the series that won the recent blog poll, Mahou no Stage Fancy Lala! 😀
Many thanks to everyone who voted to decide my next anime series – it looked VERY close for a while, and I was predicting another tie, but in the end Mahou no Stage Fancy Lala won outright by a couple of points!
I won’t comment on the series in detail until I’ve finished it and posted my review here, but I did watch the first five episodes during a train journey yesterday, and I’d say it is off to a good start. 🙂
2012 has been a FANTASTIC year so far. No heating, terrible weather, and no electricity for most of yesterday afternoon. It also started with a week of virtually no new anime releases, Mirai Nikki included. So instead, my first post of the new year will be about an older series which I personally think more people should give a chance. That show is Magical Angel Creamy Mami. Perhaps not the best name they could have come up with, at least to western audiences – a friend of mine said it sounded like MILF porn, and while I don’t claim to be an expert in that area, I’ll agree that it does sound a bit dubious. But this anime is pretty SFW, aimed at younger audiences in fact.
So why, as a guy in my 20s, am I singing the praises of a little girl’s show instead of watching MILF porn? Good question, one that I’ll attempt to answer here.
