Anyone care to tell me what this show is actually about and why it's worth watching? (PM if need be) Looks like just another stupid magical girl show to me so don't see any point in watching right now.

Regardless, any addition to CR is a good one so glad it's getting added. Hope anyone that wants to watch enjoys it.

If that's the only reason then it's not a good one for me. Think I've seen enough magical girl stuff to last a lifetime.

I pointed that out, because that attitude is what makes it worth watching.
It's purposefully promoted that way, so going into it, that is what you're suppose to think.

So are you telling me it is only a magical girl anime on the surface and there is more to it then that or am I missing something here?

In essence, it is a magical girl anime, but very atypical.

The magical girl aspect is only the trapping, from everything I have heard, the underlying story is very a-typical of the genre.

This might not be the best comparison, since some people are going to hate it no matter what; but it's like Mitsudomoe (dont take "like" too literal though!). Its a moe/loli series on the surface, but the "real" series is very funny and warped.

Nice to have it on CR, but I would imagine everyone has seen it already. If you haven't - what are you waiting? GoGoGOO!!


I will, at 10 am PST. Hold your horses.

(If everyone has already seen it, does that mean people here are still watching the unlicensed sites, or was it legally streaming somewhere else that I never heard about?)

If you decide to watch, do so at least through episode 3.

As I recall, that was the point where most people that viewed it when it originally aired acknowledged that it wasn't just another magical girl show.



To all:

Someone over on ANN also pointed out this also appears on Crackle. I popped over to my Roku and confirmed the first episode is already there in their Animax section.

This will most likely be of interest to non-premium subscribers (as Crackle is ad-supported only), especially those who wish to view the series on an XBOX 360.
