Quoth the Maho Shojo  Ho-o:

In the name of Justice, and all that is good, we will vanquish your evil with the power of goodness! Ultra-team power-force GO!

Maho Shojo Ho-o Excerpt

Nowhere is there such a mass of opposing paradigms coexisting amiably than in Asia. Bleeding-edge technology sips tea with aeons-old superstitious traditions in perfect harmony. Ancient Shinto shrines dedicated to thousandyear-old Gods boast free wi-fi and charging stations. The Gods of these temples, in the form of the Hsien, are privy to watch their favorite shows every Saturday morning.

In fact, one particular Family of Yaoguai stems from these seeming disparate clashes of motifs. This family is born of the eternal ebb and flow of yesterday and tomorrow, birth and rebirth – the Mahō Shōjo Hō-Ō: The Magickal Phoenix Girls. Also known as Kawaii, they are Female to a one of them. This coalition of girls has origins that lie in the great Ho-o, Feng Huang, or Phoenixes of Far Eastern antiquity. But the Eternal Youth that such creatures exemplify has bred ties to a more modern archetype: that of the Kawaii Girls, the absurdly cute females of Manga and Anime Influences.

What remains of this hybridization is a staple of prepubescent conventions and heavily inked fanzines the world over. They are a team of 5 magical girls, each gifted with a certain-color hair, matching school-girl uniform, and matching wand: the color which dictates the pronounced personality… Is she sporty? Is she shy? Is she bubbly? Only the color-scheme can tell you.



“I’d rather choose to fall in love and be hurt. Sometimes I can’t even sleep because I love someone too much. And there’s
always sadness in our lives. It’s that sad feeling that keeps us going.”
–  Usagi/Sailor Moon, Sailor Moon, Vol. 1
