The world of anime will not be complete without the magical girl anime genre. If you have always been a fan of this genre, you should check out the different ones available. Even if you prefer other genres of anime, you will not love anime unless you see one under this genre. Who has not heard of Sailor Moon?
The magical girl anime genre is very popular probably because of how the superheroes are portrayed. People have assumed that this genre will only appeal to the younger generation who are mostly girls but over the past years and all of the different stories that have been created under this genre, there are more male fans coming to pass. There are still a lot of anime series with cute themes but a lot of them are now dealing with more serious issues like heartaches and loss. It will be nice to watch an anime series that talks about the sacrifices that women have to undergo in order to become the protector of people, right?
These are some of the series that you have to try watching soon. For sure, you will not have any regrets.
- Demashita! Powerpuff Girls Z
While this may seem similar to the Powerpuff Girls that can be watched on Cartoon Network, you will be happy to know that it has a manga counterpart.

There were black and white lights that have erupted and after that, the 3 girls were created.
