Balala the Fairies (巴啦啦小魔仙, Bālālā Xiǎo Mó Xian) is a Chinese magical girl franchise created by Alpha Group Co., Ltd. The series follows the two sisters Maggie and Michelle, who meet Shirley, the Guardian Fairy from the Fairy Castle. Shirley, Maggie and Michelle transform into Fairies and go on various adventures, protecting the Fairy World from any threat. The series currently has five seasons, three live-action movies, and two spin-offs.
All English names are taken from Alpha Group themselves. They often put English names to their shows and characters in order to find potential licensors.
Although "fairy" in Chinese is translated as "xiānnu" (仙女) the series uses the word "mó xiān" (魔仙), a shortened form of "mófă xiānnu" (魔法仙女), "magic fairy". Hence why we refer to the main heroines as "fairies".
