Mayu, the daughter of a cafe owner, is down-in-the-dumps unlucky in love--until she meets Puchyo, the magical fairy of beverages.

This actually makes me pretty sad. I loved I Am Here! and was really looking forward to reading something else by Ema Toyama. But Pixie Pop isn't nearly as good. I suppose that the concept is interesting: Mayu gains the ability to change form depending on what she drinks. But she isn't really doing anything with it, other than stalking her crush. And she is fairly creepy about it. Whether you're a sparkling vampire or a temporarily invisible girl, it is not romantic to sneak into somebody's hous ...more

Karena suka sama Bakpao Loncat , aku jadi pasang mata kalo nemu komik Ema Toyama-sensei lagi (^///^)

Gambar : 4.5 ...ya si Pucho, ya si Pamo-chan, ya anjing-anjing yang dijatuhcintai oleh Pucho --> ini semua terlihat empuk-empuk-menggemaskan! (ω)
Belum lagi pas si Mayu berubah wujud jadi (view spoiler)

There is cute escapism and I let a lot slide in the magical girl manga genre (which this falls into) but nope Pixie Pip will not be a series I will continue with.

This book is a typical Manga. For those who are new to this genre, it is a Japanese book with sketches and words. Readers who are not familiar with Manga might think it is a comic book. Many times the artist is also the author of the book. The book begins at the back and works toward the front. Many Mangas are done in a series. This particular book is the first in a series. This book is this author's first published work. It is about a twelve year old girl entering middle school. The unique feat ...more

After reading the description I was more than a little interested in this manga series. It looked cute and funny. In middle Mayu is the daughter of a cafe owner who had told a boy she liked him a bit ago. He asked who she was and embarrassed her soooo much. She's determined to get over him but it's hard when he sits right next to her and she keeps running into him. To make matters worse she's been stuck on a strictly water diet after drinking a strange drink accidentally.

It was meant for Puchyo

Mayu, while drowning her sorrows in soda pop accidentally drinks a special concoction that belongs to Pucchou -- a drink fairy. This special 'magical' drink was supposed to turn Pucchou into an adult. Now whenever Mayu drinks something, she transforms. Pucchou, heartbroken that she can never grow up, and Mayu, heartbroken that the boy of her dreams has rejected her, team-up to realize their dreams together.

This story is only 3 volumes long, which is the perfect length to create believable charac

Thought I'd try something cute instead of a dark manga. And maybe I should just stick to the weird.
Didnt like this at all. Mayu was such a whiney annoying over the top transformer. Maybe do us a favor and disappear for good.

While this manga has a cute concept, it's pretty run-of-the-mill shojo. Nothing too original in the silly romance department.

It's a guilty pleasure, these types of stories. All sugar, sweetness, dreams, and magic, not to mention every lovesick character is 12 years old. I go to Pixie Pop when I need a dose of innocence and pink. That being said, it's not a very deep read and yes, there are "better" stories out there, I suppose. But come on. The adorable cafe, guys. The frills. The tea. Gah.

EEK! Cuteness to a whole new level!!!! Loved the storyline - original, though the main girl character could have used just a bit of a touch-up to her personality.

The other girl, who claims to love Mai's crush - hate her to hell. She was what ruined the whole story for me, but I managed to read the whole thing. Loved it so badly, especially the art.

a girl named mayu has accidentally drunken a special pixie drink that will turn a small pixie into a beautiful woman w/ extraordinary powers. this gives special powers too, in a way, when she drinks milk, she becomes giant, when she drinks water she becames invisble, and stangely enough, when she drank pork miso soup, she became pig!

I got volume 1 and 2 for a dollar each. I like this series so far. They are mainly a filler, while I wait for a new Inubaka, but they were a pleasant read. I wish that the guy would be nicer.
