Pelsia is the story of a cute young girl who grew up among the animals in Africa. She is good friends with all of the animals there. Pelsia looks to be about 10 years old or so. She has long, kind of wild blue-green hair. She wears a pink outfit in a style similar to the other Magical Girls.

The first episode begins with Pelsia being taken back to Japan by this fellow whose name has just escaped my mind, and two very cute twin guys. Pelisa has a crush on Riki, one of the twins.

In true Magical Girl fashion, Pelisa is visited/transported to some sort of alternate universe, with a distinct snowflake theme. There she is given a magical headband that will in turn create a snowflake-looking baton on command. With the baton and some magical words, Pelsia can transform herself into an older girl of about 16 years of age. Pelsia’s magic is sililar to Minky Momo’s, Creamy Mami’s and Magical Emi’s in that she becomes an older magical girl identity when using her power.

Pelsia also has two little Magical Pets to watch out for her. They look like little cat-squirrel things. Also, her pet lion from Africa eventually comes to be with her in Japan in the form of a plush toy ^_^.
