(フィギュア17つばさ&ヒカル Figyua Sebuntīn Tsubasa ando Hikaru) is an original anime series created by Genco and OLM, Inc. and directed by Naohito Takahashi.

With the aid of this mysterious 'power-up', Tsubasa is able to defeat the monster, though doing so is somewhat accidental on her part.

When the battle is over, instead of simply reverting to her usual form, Tsubasa finds that the strange substance has turned into a near-perfect copy of
