How I discovered: My first exposure to Magical Witch Punie-Chan was a “vegetable suicide” clip that aired on the E’s The Soup.
Plot: Punie, is a magical princess that must spend one year on earth if she wants to inherit the throne. While on earth, multiple assassins are trying to kill her.
Review: This was a fun series to watch. The opening title showing her happily dancing while different types of building burn out of control in the background sets the tone of this series perfectly. She pretends to be a sweet and innocent magical princess, but when the act doesn’t work or she gets agitated or annoyed, her true nature emerges. When using magic in combat is not an option, she switches to painful wrestling moves. There’s more then one scene of her breaking multiple bones and joints of an enemy she’s defeated that almost make’s you want to cringe. Be sure to check out the “extra’s” on the dvd. They contain a series of short stories where her friend visits Punnie-Chan in her kingdom.
My Grade: 4 out of 5 = “Loved it”
