This anime TV series, based on the Pretty Sammy OVAs (which were in turn based on the characters of the Tenchi Muyo! franchise) finds young Sasami tasked with becoming a champion of good by a magical queen who must find someone to make the world a better place before she can accept her crown. Sasami is given magical powers and sent on a mission of goodness. A rival for the throne, however, creates her own magical girl, the meddling Pixy Misa, who makes Sasami's job much less easy. Magical Project S is considered by many to be intended more for children than the Pretty Sammy OVAs, but both serve as good-natured spoofs of the "magical gir"l genre, drawing direct and satirical parallels between other popular magical girl series such as Sailor Moon. A highlight of Magical Project S is Sasami battling Biff Standard, who is generally believed to be a parody of Bill Gates.
