    Princess Tutu?
    Sailor Moon?

    Well, at least Cardcaptor Sakura is there in a decent position.

    What surprises me is that all my favorite majokko shows are subversions of the genre.

    Sailor Moon was a majokko with a Sentai twist.

    Card Captor Sakura was twisted about the dynamics of transformation and the separation on/off duty magic use.

    Princess Tutu and Madoka Magica are have a tragic, dark twisted where the universe turned out to be far more cruel than you would expect from a majokko show.

    Nanoha is a magical girl with a militaristic twist.

    I'll add two mind blowing ones, Utena and Penguindrum. Both tease with majokko elemetns but neither is one and neither will disappoint you.

    Finally I'm going to recommend you "Okusan wa Mahou Shoujo". Let's just say I recommend it till the end. It may be too ecchi for some tho. But this is Sankaku.

    I love Sailor Moon for blending mahou shoujo, sentai, and cutey honey, lol. But I think it's not on this female fans anime list simply because it's actually far better as a manga (especially since the original manga was far more directed towards females). I haven't read the manga but that's what every Sailor Moon fan I know that has read the manga (as well as seen the original Japanese uncut anime) has told me.

    Don't listen to this looney toon, Sailor Moon is as Mahou Shoujo as it gets. Tell us what it is, if you're so inclined or GTFO.

    SAILOR MOON's as "Magical Girl" as KIKI'S DELIVERY SERVICE, at the very least. Kiki, by virtue of being a magic-using female, is a "magical girl", but she's not mahou shoujo in the conventional sense.

    I thought the same thing but I guess if witches are included, then Kiki would be a MS movie that most everyone would/could watch. It's anime without carrying the stigma of anime. So it's ok right?

    And Kiki is on top. I always thought that Mahou Shoujo genre always had to have a transformation sequence.

    Can you really consider Sailor Moon an magical girl though? Even though she started as one, she became more like the Power Rangers.

    If Precure can be considered magical girl, then Sailor Moon can. Of course 95% of the aforementioned pretty girls hadn't even hit puberty.

    I don't know if Lina would want to be thought of as a "magical girl". Amelia -- maybe, but Lina -- probably not.

    I think 'masou' means 'ice cold'. I guess that she can use magic is secondary.

    I certainly hope all those users with negative comments are really women otherwise please keep your biased opinions to yourselves. Note that it says "Mahou Shoujo Anime" meaning titles with Mahou(magic) or Majo(witch) and or any magic casting series goes into this category. It did not imply there is any transformations involved. Thank you.

    I call BS. Kiki isn't Mahou Shoujo. You can't just have any series with female characters and magic in it, otherwise you may as well include Air in the list.

    To be a Mahou Shoujo a series must have:
    -At least one female protagonist
    -That has an overly long transformation scene
    -Doesn't have her face covered when transformed
    -Is capable of using magic when transformed
    (Does not require that she can't use magic normally)
    -And uses said magic to fight monsters/magical creatures

    Setting aside that Kiki's only magic is flying (On a broom, no less, not even straight-up flying), she never transforms. She also never fights anyone or anything.

    CCS barely applies because, while she doesn't, herself, transform, she does have a transformation scene involving the key. Plus, she gets outfits from Tomoyo, although that part isn't required.

    PSG, since angels and demons are "magical", would technically be in the genre. I hope to see it in the top 10 if boys get a chance to vote.

    Japanese women have ranked ......

    Miracle, at least the girls in japan have more brain to make a list to the failtakus lovers of dakimakuras, the only who need to be fixed is, remove the poser Madoka and put Magic Knight Rayearth.

    I agree to this.
    It is far more overrated than things like KlK.
    Art was garbage level Tier, show didn't actually introduce anything new to the genre despite the fan claims.
    Worst were the fans that hyped it beyond the heavens and back and shit talked any other mahou shoujo or ignored it when others pointed out that another show did that before already.
    The only Thing it everrated as high as it did was because it was a lot more recent than other top of the line mahou shoujo and because of how the fans forced it everywhere.

    This is your cue to stop listening to the fandom and just enjoy your anime. Just about everything is ruined by its fandom these days.

    Madoka's pretty great if you haven't watched much anime, or if you haven't seen an anime deconstruction /relatively serious mahoushoujo anime yet (Tutu, Nanoha, Red Garden, Bokurano, etc). Otherwise it's just holds together surprisingly well given that it's basically just a short Mystery Box anime with a hokey script reapplying common dramatic character arcs to the mahou shoujo genre (so common in fact it comes across as a fraternal twin of Kamen Rider Gaim).

    How cute! I'm sorry I offended you with my "big words" and "attacks" on Madoka. I hope it's helped you grow a bit of a thicker skin, so the next time someone doesn't like something you like, you don't attack them personally for it, and pretend they haven't said anything worth reading.

    You lot are all too silly. I'm sure tomorrow, someone will say something positive about one of the other series, or perhaps put them on a list, and then you'll be glomming words together from a thesaurus again to try and pretend that you have something to say while you attack that.

    If you're going to be critical, say something worth reading… at least be amusing. Being less full of shit would be a bonus but….

    Madoka is overrated because the freacks of today think to see a loli decapitated is a good drama....for you info kids the deads in maho shojos exist since the 80s.

    Madoka is good but its not a typical maho shojo anime. It's also fairly recent so doesn't stick out in the mind much of magical girl fans who arent newfags.
