Dr. Rin ni Kiite Mite!

I think the title means something like "Go ask Dr. Rin!". It is the ultimate magical girls anime, combining all the worst cliches of Sailor Moon and Fushigi Yuugi into one very predictable package. Pretty Chinese girl with blond hair, odango, and short braids (rather than long loose pigtails...hmmmm...) is madly in love with a boy that looks and acts suspiciously like a young Mamoru. And this girl, Mei-Lin, has a fortune telling tool and magical amulet, and she runs an advice web site online under the alias Dr. Rin. Well, it turns out she's the Hikaru no Miko (preistess of light) and she has four guardians (Suzaku, Seiryuu, Genbu and Byakko...hmmm...) to help her fight darkness. There's a Chibi Usa clone that gets involved later too. It's the epitome of the magical girls genre, and I find it amazingly amusing to watch after seeing Fushigi Yuugi and Sailor Moon. You may too!
