Magic and classical music mix in this reverse harem story about a teenage girl who gets drawn into a prestigious music competition after an encounter with her school's resident fairy. While the first half only flirts with being good, its musical focus keeps it from ever being bad.
Yumi's "soeur problem" moves front and center as the series returns to dramatic form after the restful third season. A sweetly accomplished comedic drama of increasing maturity.
Rubel drops some further revelations, Helen and Deneve make a new friend, a new menace arises, and much beatdown commences as Norihiro Yagi's dark fantasy series gets back on track. Not much Clare this time around, but there isn't much to be disappointed about here, either.

With clever editing of its series clips, more than 20 minutes of new footage, and some great video Extras, this movie condensation of the TV series' first 15 episodes offers a lot of bones for established fans.
