Renkin 3-kyū Magical? Pokān

Renkin 3-kyū Magical? Pokān is a Japanese anime television series that tells the story of the everyday life of four princesses from the Netherworld who are oblivious to the happenings in everyday life in the human world; the name of the anime is known as Magical Pokaan and shortened to Magipoka. The story depicts the misadventures of four princesses from the Netherworld: Uma the Witch, Pachira the Vampire, Liru the Werewolf, Aiko the Android along with Keimie; these princesses are adapting to life in the human world and reside in their Garakuta House in Hikarigaoka. The girls are faced with small self-centered problems such as finding a boyfriend, blending into society, learning about Earth's cultures, staying one step ahead of Super Doctor K-Ko. Uma,Voiced by: Momoko Saitō It is revealed that Uma is a witch, although she is not yet adept at spell casting due to her being a "third rate alchemist." She finds joy in exploring the human world. When she makes a discovery about the world and proudly points it out to the other girls only to be the last to discover such things, becoming disappointed when others learn faster than she does.

When she is not trying to master spells, Uma reads romance manga. Sometimes when Uma is casting a spell, her skirt lifts up revealing her panties, her overall design is reminiscent of a rabbit-girl ranging from her hair style that moves, her pet rabbitlike creatures, the carrot cushion that she sleeps with. Pachira Voiced by: Aya Hirano Pachira is seen during the course of the anime as a vampire with pointy ears and two small black bats riding on her hair ribbons. While she displays the common weakness of vampires such as a weakness to garlic and holy water, her biggest weakness is her small breast size which she hopes to have expanded whatever way possible, she has the ability to fly by sprouting wings, extends her fingernails into claws, is seen eating regular food as well as having a vampire's traditional lust for drinking blood. She turns to ash in sunlight, but it is not fatal as noted in the prologue of episode one as she just ends up in a burnt state. Pachira wears a long cardboard box over her head whenever she goes out.

When she goes to the beach, Pachira wears a heavy coat of sunscreen on her skin to prevent her from getting burned. Though Pachira wouldn't show up on any camera due to her not casting a reflection, she can be seen on a thermographic camera. Liru Voiced by: Hitomi Nabatame It is explained to the audience that Liru is a werewolf with her wolflike ears and tail exposed in her normal form, she appears as a tan blonde-haired teenager dressed in a brown leather harness that goes across her breasts, brown fingerless gloves with gold-spiked bracelets on them, blue denim shorts, white thigh length boots. Liru has an energetic personality and has animal traits such as the ability to leap great distances with little effort, has enhanced strength, speed and senses. Like all werewolves, she is lycanthropic and her wolf form looks similar to a yellow puppy. A minor recurring theme in the episodes is when Liru sees a full moon-shaped object, she changes into her wolf form. Liru is shown to have a weakness to silver.

Being a werewolf, Liru enjoys eating any type of meat and her favorite type of meat is Matsuzaka Beef. Aiko Voiced by: Satomi Akesaka Aiko is an android with silver hands and silver boot-shaped feet, an outdated CPU, low memory size, her name is a pun of Aiko. It is a common girl's name, but the "Ai" in her name is written with the kanji for "Iron" rather than "Love". Aiko performs housekeeping duties for the other girls like cooking and laundry because of her devoted mind making her the housekeeper of the group, her weight is 300-kilogram or more. Being an android, Aiko doesn't eat or drink which came in handy one time when two snow people served cold food that temporarily froze the other three princesses, she always hopes to get her own human-type body through whatever way possible. When at the beach, Aiko uses a wind-up submarine-type suit to go swimming after getting herself waterproofed. Keimie Voiced by: Nomico An invisible woman that serves as the chaperone of the four princesses. Though she does not appear often except in a narrative part in episode one and narrative parts at the end of some episodes or heard saying something to the princesses in some episodes, her most notable scene involved an English Speaking game where she served a bad-tasting Nattō drink to the princess that messes up by speaking Japanese with her drinking Nattō when Aiko messed up.

In "The Spell of Ifs is Dr. ○×△□," she was dressed as a nurse with bandages to cover her invisible body when the episode shows each princess as a doctor. Jun and Tan Jun Voiced by: Nomico Tan Voiced by: Wataru Hatano Uma's pet rabbitlike creatures. Jun is a peach-colored rabbitlike creature and Tan is a black rabbitlike creature, they can spin their ears around like a helicopter propeller to fly, use the end of their ears as hands, float around. Tan can change into Uma's hat when Uma is seen in her black cape. Super Doctor K-Ko Voiced by: Shōko Tsuda A semi-regular character who

The Plough Arts Centre, Torrington

The Plough Arts Centre is a theatre and art gallery in Torrington, North Devon, England. The Plough is situated in a former Territorial Army drill hall on Fore Street in the centre of Torrington; the site was a 16th-century town house, turned into a public house, The Plough Inn in 1750, giving the centre its current name. The pub was licensed until 1910 but had fallen into disrepair and was demolished in 1912; the building we see today was completed in 1913. The Plough was opened with a performance by Dame Edith Evans. In 1991 financial problems threatened The Plough with closure: it was saved through a merger with the nearby Beaford Arts, established in 1966 by the Dartington Hall Trust to promote and support the arts in rural north Devon. Beaford withdrew in 2002, The Plough is now again independent and hosts theatre, music and art exhibitions; the theatre has the capacity to expand to 240 people. In 2014 a 60-year-old 35mm celluloid Westar projector was supplemented with a digital projector and enhancements to technical capabilities at the centre, including a new box office system.

The money was raised by public fundraising backed by Alistair McGowan, a patron of The Plough. The campaign was boosted by the $4,500 raised at an event with Michael Portillo; the Plough Arts Centre runs many creative workshops for people of all abilities. It is the home of the Plough Youth Theatre founded in 2010; the Plough Arts Centre website Media related to The Plough Arts Centre, Torrington at Wikimedia Commons
