I am an anime fan living in Taipei, Taiwan. I watched many animation about magical girls, too. When I watched this title, I felt it different from other magical girl type and couldn't help watching it then.
I thank people who helped building this wiki and learned a lot from this. Without this, I wouldn't know so deep. And I thank the staff, they made a great show.
I cannot write or speak English very well. Please help me if I make mistakes so I can learn from that, too.
