  • How To Make A Good "Rogue Magical Girl" Anime
    Mahou Shoujo Ikusei Keikaku is the follow up to the success of Madoka Magica and was meant to kind of ride off the hype of this new genre of "Rogue Magical girls" that Madoka Magica proved could have a place in the anime industry. Well I think Magical Girl Raising Project was really exciting, fun and unique, I don't think the story or characters were all that good. Magical Girl Raising Project ...

  • It is the darker side to what goes on in the magical girl world
    I loved it, every character had some sort of story to contribute to the series and it shows why everyone was doing what they where doing. Some purely innocent, but others it was quite darker. Great plot and sometimes gruesome. Overall, I kind of hope it gets a second season.

  • Not a Typical Magical Girl Anime
    Everyone keeps saying, that this fails at being a magical girl anime, but that was obviously not what it was going for. I am not saying it was great, because it wasn't at times it felt like it was trying to be dark just for the sake of being dark. If you are looking for a silly happy and campy magical girl anime, move along. If you are looking for something dark, with a "the world isn't fair, ...

  • I liked this show, you should give it a chance.
    I liked this anime. I liked how all the characters were diverse in that they all came from different backgrounds. I also thought all of the deaths were believable and I couldn't predict how things were going to unfold. I also loved how they show that having a certain power could be useful or completely useless in a fight depending on their opponent.

  • actually original and amazing!
    Idk why people are saying its a ripoff of Puella Magi Madoka Magica because its completely different! If you had actually watched both shows entirely you would know that. In this show 16 girls (well, one is a boy) are turned into Magical Girls by Fav. They are then basically put in a death match against one another. The main character, a girl dubbed "Snow White" believes in being a pure, kind, ...

  • A Decent Anime with Potential on Being a Great Series
    MGRP is an okay anime at best. I mean it did have some good character development, some creative character designs (also some bland [Snow White], generic [Cranberry, Peaky Angel Twins, and Magicaloid44], or boring [Swim Swim]), and good animation. However the writing was every where. I mean there was a whole of mix bag of backstories and all throw into the skillet. That and lack of explanations or ...

  • Hopeful, But Only To A Point
    So, here goes nothing. Magical Girl Raising Project is a show where cute magical girls kill each other in order to survive. Simple, right?
    That's where the problem starts.
    I have to admit, now, that I loved the first few episodes, wherein a group of soon-to-be 16 young Magical Girls are going to compete in order to gain "Candies," and the one with the least loses their ability to be a Magical ...

  • Tiresome Grief-Porn...
    Kill one stalwart, young, would-be heroine, and the audience gasps. Spend a season mulching a flock of them, and that initial shock decays into tedium. MGRP's biggest problem is that we don't get to know its sacrificial lambs beyond a few basic (and predictably poignant) character traits, so the near-constant wallowing in their angst and suffering feels pointless. Absent emotional stakes, the ...

    Fails at being a magical girl anime
    Despite containing the words Magical Girl in the title the magical girl qualities of this show are shallow and perfunctory. It's indistinguishable from a shonen anime with character designs that range from fashion crime to ugly and every aspect of this show as an adaptation is a rushed mess which is amazing considering the original book was even more rushed and inconsistent. Obvious ripoff of the ...

  • Magical Girl Battle Royal
    Magical Girl Raising Project might have been the surprise of the season when it released. It's about girls who become real magical girls, and as magical girls, it is their responsibility to protect the peace in their locales. However, there is a surplus of girls and the organization managing these girls decides to have a battle royale as a form of magical girl population control. Putting magical ...
