Magical Girls?

Obviously Jer, you've been checking out the wrong magical girl manga/anime. There are quite a few that posess a keen adult wit, and yes, sarcasm.

Magic Knight Rayearth (CLAMP) comes to mind, as well as some of their other lesser known work. Cutey Honey and Devil Hunter Yohko have all the magical action with none of the cuteness (just sexy adult-only). And even though I loathe the Tenchi series to depths greater than 20 000 leagues, the Pretty Sammy OVA is all about parody and sarcasm. Making fun of the M.G. genre in that wacky Tenchi way.

There are some others, but I can't think of them off the top of my head.....
