Both the manga and the anime are very enjoyable; if you like shojo manga.
It's a magical girl story, but while is aimed a girls, adults can enjoy it too since it's not overly cheesy and it doesn't revolve much about how much the main characters like a boy or how much they would like to have a boyfriend.
Even Chocolat's love-hate relationship with the misterious boy is quite well done, and it really doesn't become the only plot development of the story.
On the other hand, one of the things I didn't like about the anime was it's episodic nature. It's usual in magical girl stories, but it would be better if it had a continuity, from episode to episode.
It's a good watch if you like the magical girl genre and you are tired of generic and too simple stories that are out these days.
Hahha, my niece got me into this anime at 2008, she said it was good and so I give it a try. Thou I'm not really a fan
for the graphic, I can still tolerate it, however. XD
It's cute and sometimes annoys the heck out of me, the OST are pretty cute and I have it all in my playlist. *eyes gleamed*
Well, overall, it's pretty light and fun, with a bit tension in some of the episodes (nearing climax) and it comes with an ending everyone wished for. I guess.
