As the protagonist of a magical girl game, the eponymous Moco, looks the part with her classical pink witch outfit. Her characterisation takes pages out of Sailor Moon’s book with her naïve, trusting nature but trades Usagi’s crybaby tendencies for a downright infectious level of optimism. She’s even decked out with a cat wand appropriately named Neko, who plays the equivalent role of Kero from Cardcaptor Sakura as the heroine’s snide but caring companion.
