What makes a Magical Girl?
The magical girl is a type of character found in shoujo (Japanese comics aimed at young girls); however, magical girls also appear across many genres and character types. You definitely need to have these in your repertoire. The magical girl starts out as a typical shoolgirl. Her transformation-- via a glamorous costume, and amplified by special powers-- gives her a new identity. She would be the last person in the world to believe that something amazing was about to happen to her.
