Concept / PlotMahou no Petenshi Reality Maji is a fictional magical girl anime that only exists inside the "Sket Dance" real anime. With an ordinary good versus evil storyline and plenty of battle scenes. Though the series takes place in a fantasy setting, the situations are handled in a down-to-earth manner to present a realistic world view to children watching. Reality Maji is the protagonist of the series. Her three weapons are her genius swindling ability, magic, and her cynical stick. When she defeats a villain, she demands money from them.
