Plot

Karin Kokubu (Kassie Carlen) is late for school one day when she comes across an apparently injured yellow pig. It turns out the pig wasn't injured but just hungry, and he gets back his health when he eats Karin's apple. When Karin gets to school she discovers that the pig has stowed away in her backpack which causes her more trouble. Later she meets the pig again and finds out he can talk and fly, he gives her a "pigompact" which she opens; a pig snout appears from it and attaches itself to her nose! She finds the pig again, who explains that he is actually Prince Tonrariāno III (Iggy Pig) of the planet Buuringo. He tells her how she can transform: by saying "BA BI BU BE BOorin!" she transforms into a superpowered pink piglet called Buurin. This is not something Karin is happy about at all as she'd rather transform into a heroine like her idol the henshin hero tokusatsu character "Cutey Chao" (who is possibly a reference to Cutey Honey). Tonrariāno (who she calls Ton-chan) tells her if she can collect 108 pearls by doing good deeds as Buurin she can do so. The pearl collection operates on karma, meaning if Buurin abuses her powers she will lose pearls.

Manga

A "pilot" story titled Bibbidi Bobbidi Būrin!! (ビビデ·バビデ·ぶ〜りん!! Bibide Bobide Būrin!!?) appeared in the fall 1993 issue of Ciao DX. The manga series subsequently appeared in Ciao from the October 1994 issue through the September 1995 issue. The tankōbon, or collections, we released in three volumes by Shogakukan's Flower Comics label.

  • Volume 1, ISBN 4-09-136451-9 (released April 1995)
  • Volume 2, ISBN 4-09-136452-7 (released August 1995)
  • Volume 3, ISBN 4-09-136453-5 (released October 1995)

Parody

Super Pig is a parody on the classic Magical girl series ( Mermaid Melody, Tokyo Mew Mew) it seems to have a lot of similarities with Sailor Moon showing a parody tribute to the series: Like Usagi, Karin finds a little pig ( Ton-chan ) in the need of help, Karin rescues him and therefore Ton-Chan chooses her to transform into Superpig. ( with Usagi in Sailor Moonit was the same thing but with a cat named Luna ) Karin has an annoying little brother that teases his sister but admires Super Pig. In Sailor Moon: Usagi also has a little brother that teases her but sees Sailor Moon as his hero. Karin's classmates Masami and Jimmy look a lot like Usagi's classmates Ami Sailor Mercury and Umino.
