Magical Emi, the Magic Star[1] (魔法のスターマジカルエミ Mahō no Star Majikaru Emi ?) is a magical girl anime series by Studio Pierrot. It was simultaneously released as a manga by Kiyoko Arai. The third magical girl series created by Studio Pierrot, Magical Emi also appears in three feature-length OVAs, as well as the Adesugata Mahou no Sannin Musume and Majokko Club Yoningumi A-kukan kara no Alien X OVAs.



Mai Kozuki is from a family of magicians. Her grandparents are leaders of a troupe, Magic Carat, and their daughter — Mai's mother — debuted under them. Naturally, Mai wants to become a magician herself, just like her hero, the fabulous legend Emily Howell. Unfortunately, because she is still a young girl, she is very clumsy and unsure.

One day, while helping her grandfather move things, Mai sees a strange light enter an odd, heart shaped mirror and turn into a mirror fairy named Topo. He takes over the body of her favorite toy, a stuffed flying squirrel, and explains that he must give magic to the one who can see him. He gives her a bracelet with the symbols of the 4 card suits (spade, club, diamond and heart) which produces a magic wand. By waving the wand, Mai becomes Magical Emi, a teenage magician. She stars in her grandparents' shows, and uses magic to help solve problems. But at the end of the day, she wants to become a magician all by herself.



  • Magical Emi's costume somewhat resembles that of the DC Comics character Zatanna, complete with top hat.
  • Numerous references to the earlier Pierrot series Creamy Mami are made throughout the series, for example a girl wearing Yuu Morisawa's outfit is seen in Mai's classroom, and Mai has a Creamy Mami manga book on her desk.
