Magikano is a Manga series by Takeaki Momose, which was later adapted into an Anime series directed by Seiji Kishi and written by Hideki Mitsui.

The story centers on Ayumi Mamiya, a witch cursed to lose her powers, and Haruo Yoshikawa, an apparently Ordinary High School Student whose three sisters are witches who use their magical powers to keep him protected and ignorant about the existence of magic. Now Ayumi must wake up Haruo's latent powers to save herself - but his sisters have other ideas.

Magikano contains examples of:

  • Absurdly Powerful Student Council: While Yuri doesn't take it to the extreme that some other shows do, she does abuse her privileges whenever it concerns Haruo, such as showing up to his house when she hears that Ayumi is living with him, or the other girls terrible roles in the play in episode 9. The other characters often point out that she's abusing her powers.
  • Abuse Is Okay When Its Female On Male: Seems Haruo is often on the receiving end of this, usually by his sisters or Ayumi.
  • Balloon Belly: Chiaki in episode 12.
  • Barehanded Blade Block: Rika stops a giant's axe with one hand.
  • BFS: Yuri has one during her battle mode. Can double as a hovering surf board.
  • Big Brother Attraction: Maika, to Haruo. She's always showering him with affection, hiding in his closet and watching him sleep, trying to bathe him, modeling lingerie for him to see (even wearing it on top of her school uniform to give him a little preview), and attempting to drive away any and all other female attention from him.
  • Big Eater: Chiaki. However, she claims to enjoy exercising even more than she enjoys eating.
  • Blue with Shock: Happens to Ayumi in episode 4 after someone steals her pendant. She also suffers a Heroic BSOD.
    • Happens to her again in episode 7 when Rika puts a cage full of rats in front of her face.
  • Brick Joke: "Huh, deja vu."
  • Brother-Sister Incest: Played with. Maika's love for her brother can't be healthy.

 Yuri: (with a funny smirk on her face): I didn't pick Haruo on purpose, it was a collective decision.

 Marin: "Ayumi Mamiya correct?"

Ayumi: "Not another Jehovah's Witness.

  • The Jimmy Hart Version: Episode 7 has a Terminator-like music playing, followed shortly by a gun being fired at Haruo.
    • Done again in episode 8 whenever the scene jumps to Rika performing her chores.
  • Typecasting: In-universe example. In episode 9 of the dub, after Ayumi gets into her witch costume:

 Ayumi: Why am I a witch?

Yuri: Ever heard of typecasting, bitch?

  • Tsundere: Ayumi, who is also a...
    • Yandere: Ayumi really needs to improve her anger management...
    • But if you think Ayumi's temper is serious, then look at Maika: you haven't seen temper yet.
  • Unwanted Harem: The female leads.
  • What Do You Mean It's Not Awesome?: Rika during her intro in episode 7 does a lot of things that goes a bit overboard, such as shooting at them and later summoning a fire demon. She then tells the girls that it was her attempts at a joke, and asks if it was effective. The girls respond by hitting her.
  • Why Did It Have To Be Eels: Ayumi is not fond of eels, or rats.
