Balala the Fairies (巴啦啦小魔仙, Bālālā xiǎo mó xian), is a Chinese magical girl metaseries created and produced by Alpha Group. The first installment was premiered as a live-action series which first aired in 2008 before the continuation processed between different media from film to anime.
While the franchise is praised as one of the biggest advancements of Chinese animation, it was somehow criticized for being a "rip-off" of the Pretty Cure metaseries in Japan.
Each season focuses on a group of Chinese schoolgirls, who are granted magical powers and talents and transform into the legendary warriors known as the "Fairies of Balala" to fight against unknown evil forces. As the battle against evil gets stronger, the Balala Fairies will keep up the fight as their strength gets contested many times while obtaining new items and abilities.
