Not a big magical girl fan, (despite liking Madoka and Kill la Kill), though i found the 2 episodes entertaining.

Oh... uh, OK.

Was definitely thinking this was going to be like a CGDCT SoL but then the leaves stopped in midair. Yuna's staggered first transformation was awesome I thought. Togo's a badass so we're good there, liked her transformation sequence the most although I wasn't expecting them to focus on her chest so much lol.

I like Itsuki's wires too. Seems like some pretty unconventional weaponry for magical girls all around which I like, I haven't seen some of the older shows though to get a great idea of that.

The OST and the baddie designs are giving me serious Nier flashbacks, am I the only one?

No you are not. I hope this doesn't get nearly as dark as Nier was, but those flower petals on their costumes lighting up has me worried. That fairy being on Yuna's head reminds me of the tanuki from Monthly Girl's Nozaki-kun. It's totally pointless.

Uh oh... just noticed that the original concept and planning for this show is done by Takahiro, the Akame Ga Kill! author...

So placing bets on when and how dark this gets then?

This was not what I was even remotely expecting. I picked up this show because it was streaming and I wanted to see cute girls doing cute things... The director was also the guy who directed Hamatora and Re: Hamatora so Lord knows what that means for the direction.

I have a vague feeling this is gonna go really dark, but there's still some cheerful moments so I'm hoping it won't be anything too soul crushing. Then again. Hamatora guy. The mood whiplash in that was strong enough to put you in a neckbrace. Let's find out I suppose!

Honestly, I'm in camp "get darker than Nier" lmao.

Fairy cow stops giant stingers soooo it's still more useful than that tanuki at least lol. But yeah, I agree it's unnecessary except you have to appeal to the Ashisu's out there too. xD

My thoughts on episodes 1-2:


Well that was a bit unusual. What looked like a slice of life became a magical girl battling against abnormality in a fantasy world type show. Idk how I feel about the main characters yet but Yuuna is someone to up to so far.

The action is decent along with the soundtrack. I'm hoping they will reveal more about the Vertex soon since I think there's a lot more than what's being show so far. Some I'm not sure I like the balance of the show so far though as the comedy feels a bit childish. The premise has potential.

hmm did remind me a bit of Madoka Magica, hoping the story isn't as tragic though.

More bait and switch SoL please!!!! this was a damn fun suprise, colorful and has the Katanagatari OST vibe! D: , awesome.

Togo might not have walkable legs....but she is winning in everything....from her guns...to her GUNS.....

Well I meant her being there outside of the other dimension, but honestly after Madoka Magica Rebellion, I am totally burned out on taking Mahou Shoujo anime/manga seriously. I'm just in it for the ridiculousness at this point. Watching middle school girls talking about how love, hope, and friendship make the world go 'round then when an enemy (i.e. something not human) shows up, having them stab it in the eye with their staff yelling DIE! DIE! After saying that, I do have to admit, this one is pretty interesting so far.

The proper term is "plot" lol.

Loved it! Loved it, Loved It, LOVED IT!

Togo's plot and PLOT are great.

I don't care if people compare this to Madoka. I'll take a twin-drilled blonde magical girl leader anytime.

Brain is off, this is just fun, Fun, FUN! Until someone gets their head bitten off... maybe. Then it will just be a game? No, that's not quite right...

Looks great so far but I can't trust cute magical girls anymore. I keep feeling that something bad is going to happen soon.
