Started out good

It started off great( a bit slow) but the writers seemed to of lost interest towards the end and the ending was anti-climatic. They build up to something awesome and don't give you the payoff

It's a cartoon from America and Canada, not an anime from Japan

Common Sense called it something that would appeal to young anime fans but this isn't an anime. It's a cartoon that has nothing to do with anime other than being a magical girl cartoon. And not all anime is fantasy oriented so please don't label everything that is fantasy based as being an anime or appealing to anime fans because it's a hit or miss title. All I will say is that there is mild toy marketing with this show. It's a tiny bit more violent than English edited Sailor Moon which is a magical girl anime. The voicing is your typical over the top American acting and I would say that it's only a little bit better than Winks which also gets mislabeled as an anime. I wouldn't say there's anything to be had here except a good alternative to put on if nothing else is on. There's also better female role models found on other cartoons.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much consumerism

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2):
Kids say (1):

This fun, female-centered series offers lots of action as the young women showcase their superpowers and unique weapons while fighting evil forces. It also contains magical creature companions, trainers (known as astromancers), and dark forces that young anime fans find appealing.

Mysticons isn't particularly educational, and it does contain some of the traditional fantasy violence these types of shows are known for. Nonetheless, it's very colorful and compelling. Best of all, it offers young viewers an entertaining alternative to the many male-centered series produced for this age group.
