DVD Set 4 "Mami Set"
Yuu is a rambunctious ten-year old who loves having adventures and helping out at her parents' shop Creamy Crepes. She also has a crush on Toshio, her handsome thirteen-year-old neighbor. One day she finds a spaceship, and after rescuing the aliens inside, they thank her by giving her a magical compact to use as she likes for a year. The first power she gains is transforming into a teenaged version of herself, and she tests it by singing on stage with the wand as a magic microphone, calling herself "Creamy Mami". Things go awry, though, because now the talent agency president Tachibana wants her as one of their performers, and won't take no for an answer. Even worse, Toshio has a crush on her too, but only when she's Mami! It's not easy being a star, but it can be fun to be a magical one!
This was the first of Studio Pierrot's magical girl series, and includes many beloved elements of the genre, such as the magical wand activated by a goofy incantation, and sparkly transformation sequences. It also pioneered the magical girl idol subgenre. Even though she looks more mature as Mami, and grudgingly takes on the duties of a popular idol singer, Yuu is still at heart a ten-year-old who just wants to have fun, and mostly acts the part. Though there are occasional serious or touching moments, on the whole the show is delightfully whimsical and at times surreal, with Mami's magic-enhanced song performances as the cherry on top. Great fun for all ages!

Yuu is a precocious 10-year-old girl who likes Toshio, a boy, 3 years older than her. One day, Yuu runs into aliens that have trouble with their damaged spaceship. In appreciation for helping them repair the spaceship, the aliens give Yuu a magical stick with one condition; she must keep it secret, otherwise she will lose the special power. In order to attract Toshio, Yuu decides to transform herself into an attractive 17-year-old girl! Yuu, with the 17-year-old figure, happens to be discovered as an idol singer and makes her debut as “Creamy Mami”. But she never could have imagined that Toshio would start to be attracted to Creamy Mami, and not Yuu herself. This is the first and the most popular story of Pierrot's Magical Girls series.
